One Direction's Harry Styles Asks Aussie Reporter Out On Date, She Turns Him Down

Look out, fans! The boys of One Direction may be asking you out in the future.

Sunday Telegraph reporter Elle Halliwell got a shock this week when band member Harry Styles, 18, asked for her phone number after an interview. She confessed to the exchange in a recent article, writing:

I did notice during my Wednesday interview with the band that Styles was staring at me -- but I was surprised and flattered when a member of the publicity team rang me to ask if Harry could have my number.
But unlike what most One Direction fangirls would do, the 25-year-old turned down Harry's date. She reasoned:
I turned down Harry Styles, not because I didn't like the 18-year-old singer, but because I'm 25 and engaged to be married. I don't know whether Harry had noticed the diamond ring on my finger and chosen to ignore it or whether -- and this is more likely -- he's an 18-year-old boy who's not highly attuned to things like that. Anyway, even if I were interested in a date with the latest pop sensation, my evening was already fixed with a strictly unchangeable appointment -- to try on wedding gowns.
However, this isn't the first time Styles has pursued an older woman. In the past, the UK X Factor contestant has been linked to 31-year-old British TV host Caroline Flack and 24-year-old Irish photographer Sarah-Louise Colivet. Recent reports also claim that the British cutie has made a move on 32-year-old former Bachelorette Jillian Harris
