Of all the members of One Direction, it's Harry Styles who has the biggest reputation as a player, especially when it come to older women. But the 18-year-old heartthrob says his image as a womanizer is inaccurate.
Speaking to the British paper The Sun, Harry says, "I know sometimes it might come across in the paper that I’m a bit like that, but I’m really not...I don’t want to be viewed as a womanizer...I’m not quite as I’m made out to be."
Harry explains, "I have friends who are girls and sometimes even if I give them a lift home I’m ‘dating them,' or whatever." He added, "It's fine. I have a lot of fun. I think that’s important. You don’t want to look back with any regrets. But at the same time, if I met someone who I got on with and I liked, then who knows?"
However, Harry isn't trying very hard to quash his lover-boy image, because in that same interview, he admitted that he's checked out the erotic novel 50 Shades of Grey. "I haven’t bought it, but a female friend of mine was forcing me to read it out [loud] to her the other day," he said. "It seems interesting. I could probably learn from it, I don’t know. I feel like it’s an educational and interesting read."
