Harry Styles is currently one of the most talked-about singers in the industry.
With the success of his albums “Harry’s House” and “As It Was” on the Billboard charts, Harry’s new film, “Don’t Worry Darling,” takes the cake this week as the cast, including him, graces the Venice Film Festival red carpet.
Styles discussed his “difficulty” with acting in a recent interview, something he has felt the opposite of when he is busy filling stadiums and arenas for his “Love on Tour.”
Fans were buzzing about Harry Styles’ arrival at the Venice Film Festival for the premiere screening of his film, “Don’t Worry Darling,” which he directed.
Aside from his explosive kiss with co-star Nick Kroll, alleged spitting on Chris Pine, and apathy toward rumored girlfriend Olivia Wilde and on-screen partner Florence Pugh, Styles has elaborated on his acting, which detractors have come to flesh out in recent months.
Styles told Venetian journalists, according to Variety, that he considers himself a newcomer to the acting world. Styles’ filmography currently consists of only three films: “Dunkirk,” “Eternals,” and “Don’t Worry Darling.”
“Music I’ve done a little longer so I’m a bit more comfortable. What I like about acting is I feel like I have no idea what I’m doing.”
The former One Direction singer finds the most interesting aspect of acting when he draws from his own experience while pretending to be someone else.
Styles describes acting and singing as “opposite in a lot of ways,” but he appears to be getting the best of both worlds.
“I feel very lucky I get to do something I love as a job. I feel like being able to explore this has made me feel even luckier I get to do two things I really enjoy. In terms of the future…I enjoy both. It’s all fun to play in both worlds and see how they affect each other.”
“As It Was” maintained its No. 1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 charts for the 12th week.
To date, Harry Styles’ “As It Was” is the single with the longest run at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts this decade, surpassing Roddy Ricch’s 11-week run for “The Box.”
