The teenage heartthrob has revealed which One Direction bandmate he’d most want to date and — to fans’ surprise — it’s not his best friend and former roommate.
Who did Styles pick to be his fantasy 1D beau: Niall Horan, Liam Payne or Zayn Malik?
“I think I’d go out with Liam because he’s a genuine, kind-hearted boy,” Styles, 18, admitted to Top of the Pops magazine.
“Someone being genuine is really important to me. I think if you were his girlfriend, he would treat you really well.”
The boys of One Direction — and their love lives — have been in the public eye since they burst out onto the music scene after finishing third in U.K.’s The X Factor in 2010.
Though Payne, Tomlinson and Malik are now all in serious relationships, it still doesn’t stop gay rumors from spreading. Fans even made a couple name for Style and Tomlinson — Larry Stylinson.
“The fans actually make these things. It’s quite cute, actually. It’s funny,” Payne, 19, said in an interview with Dallas TV station KXAS about the moniker. “They make these things like bromances between us, like, mold our names together.”
“Some people genuinely think that we’re in a relationship,” Tomlinson, 20, added. “They genuinely, seriously think that we’re in a relationship. It’s so funny!”
Payne is currently linked to dancer Danielle Peazer, while Tomlinson has been happily going steady with model Eleanor Calder.
In May, Malik, 19, reunited with on-and-off girlfriend, Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards.
On the other hand, Styles and Horan, 19, remain unattached.
