The actress stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on 22 September, and naturally, the host was quite inquisitive about all the drama surrounding the highly-anticipated film, and did not hold back when questioning its director.

"Did Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine, why or why not, support your answer," Stephen inquired, which Olivia received with humor.

She set the record straight once more, maintaining that: "He did not," and turned the "Spitgate" conversation into a message about how quickly rumors spread.

Olivia once again insisted: "Harry did not spit on Chris… but that is exactly what I mean. People can look at a video that shows evidence of someone not spitting on someone else and they'll still see what they want to see, and that is the creation of drama."

During the interview, she also maintained that there is absolutely no tension between her and her lead star, Florence, who opted out of several press events for the film.

The revelatory and candid conversation comes after rumors that the drama led to tension, or even a break-up, between Olivia and Harry, the latter who on the very night was bidding farewell to his 15-day Madison Square Garden residency.
