Harry Styles Spotted in France, Ready to Start Filming His First Movie

This Photo of Harry Styles' New Haircut Went Viral, Except It's Not Actually Harry Styles
Even since Harry Styles revealed he's chopped off his locks for charity, fans have been clamoring for a first look at his newly cut hair

Ohhh, no wonder he cut his hair!

One Directioner Harry Styles made fans weep when he cut his signature long locks short a few weeks ago – but now we know why! He’s making his big-screen debut in Christopher Nolan’s WWII film Dunkirk. You can’t have long hair when you’re playing a soldier.

Of course, fans still love them some Harry, and he was spotted in France last week. One fan snapped a quick pic with him on the Eurostar train on his way to Lille to starting shooting, reports People.

Written and director by Nolan, Dunkirk tells the story of the British evacuation from the French city in 1940, where thousands of soldiers waited on a beach for their turn to be rescued, as the Germans marched closer.

Along with Styles (who is really acting now??), the film stars Tom Hardy and Mark Rylance and is set to hit theaters July 21, 2017.
