Pine has finally opened up about the famous incident that went viral, Spigate. A video on Esquire showed the Star Trek actor speaking about the incident with the Grammy-winning musician.

He said, “Harry did not spit on me. Harry is a very, very kind guy.”

The actor also explained learning about the controversy during a plane ride. 

He added,

“I was on the plane and we’re flying back from Venice having a great time on the plane and my publicist wakes me up and says, ‘We have to craft a statement on what happened in Venice.’ She showed me the thing and it did look, indeed, like Harry spits on me. He didn’t spit on me.”

The 42-year-old recalled the singer leaning down to tell me a joke. He said, “I think Harry leaned down and said, ‘It’s just words, isn’t it?’

He added to clarify the issue saying,

“We were all jet lagged and trying to answer questions. And sometimes when you’re doing these press things, your brain goes befuddled and you start speaking gibberish, so we had a joke: ‘It’s just words.”

It comes as an official statement from Pine, although his representative has already denied the rumor calling it a “ridiculous story.”
