There’s Something About Harry (PHOTOS)
Though he’s barely out of his teen years, Harry Styles is a wanted man. The One Direction superstar turns the big 1-9 on Friday, and while he’s on the mend from his breakup with Taylor Swift, that hasn’t stopped his rocketing status as one of young Hollywood’s hottest singles.
Before his claim to fame, Styles auditioned for The X Factor U.K. in 2010. While didn’t he get a chance to show off his skills as a solo contestant, the Holmes Chapel, U.K. native was given a second chance by Simon Cowell, and guest judge Nicole Scherzinger, who suggested that he team up with his future 1D bandmates in the groups category. Flash forward to 2013: One Direction has two platinum albums, sold-out tours, millions of fans around the world and a 3D movie in the works.
Britney Spears, Selena Gomez, and yes, even Joe Jonas.
So which celebs have a crush on the British heartthrob?
Although she’s a fan of Styles’ bandmate Niall Horan, Katy Perry shared a smooch with Styles during the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards after she bestowed 1D with the Best Pop Video trophy, while also admitting to wanting to “makeout” with Styles.
And just like her BFF, Rihanna also has the hots for Harry after being questioned on her favorite member of 1D.
“Harry, yeah. I watch their videos and I remember thinking, ‘Wow, he’s a star,” she told Australian reporters. “He seems very sure. It seems, like, it’s so natural to him.”
Emma Watson. The pair caused a frenzy on Twitter when they engaged in a flirtatious conversation with over Watson’s acclaimed flick, Perks of Being a Wallflower. Styles walked out halfway through a screening of the 2012 flick, leaving Watson to pen a playful message.
“So @harry_styles – when are you going to see the SECOND half of Perks of being a Wallflower ?! Huh Huh huh ?” she inquired.
To which Styles replied: “oh hiiii.. I’m going to watch it now? On the up side, it was the best first half of a film I’ve ever seen.”
