One Direction's Harry Styles Denies He's a Womanizer, Studies "50 Shades of Grey"

Chris Hyde/Getty ImagesOf 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."
