The 25-year-old explained to the British mag:
“The word ‘sexy’ sounds so strange coming out of my mouth. So I would say that that’s probably why I would not consider myself sexy.”
We beg to differ!!
Someone who else who has been dubbed as a sex symbol? Elvis . Styles was recently on a short list to play The King in an upcoming biopic but lost out to Austin Butler .

“ [Elvis] was such an icon for me growing up. There was something almost sacred about him, almost like I didn’t want to touch him. Then I ended up getting into [his life] a bit and I wasn’t disappointed. I feel like if I’m not the right person for the thing, then it’s best for both of us that I don’t do it, you know?”
Elvis wasn’t the only sex symbol Harry decided he wasn’t quite right for.
Harry surprised everyone last month and actually passed on the role of Prince Eric in Disney ‘s upcoming live action remake of The Little Mermaid .
Speaking on the Hollywood hearsay, he confirmed he was in talks for the part and ultimately passed:
“It was discussed… I want to put music out and focus on that for a while. But everyone involved in it was amazing, so I think it’s going to be great. I’ll enjoy watching it, I’m sure.”
He’s not done acting yet though! He says he still loves it when it’s the right time:
“It’s so different to music for me. They’re almost opposite for me. Music, you try and put so much of yourself into it; acting, you’re trying to totally disappear in whoever you’re being.”
So wise. And also, still sexy.
Harry is also known for making gender-blurring choices with his fashion . He says he “never really started to label” his own sexuality either, which influences the way he dresses. The Sign Of The Times crooner explained:
“What’s feminine and what’s masculine, what men are wearing and what women are wearing. It’s like there are no lines any more.”
While on the topic of sexuality, he continued:
“I’m not always super-outspoken. But I think it’s very clear from choices that I make that I feel a certain way about lots of things. I don’t know how to describe it. I guess I’m not…I want everyone to feel welcome at shows and online. They want to be loved and equal, you know? I’m never unsupported, so it feels weird for me to overthink it for someone else.”
So what’s next for the 25-year-old? He mused about the future:
“I’ve seen a couple of things. But I’m still young. I feel like there’s still stuff to see.”
One thing we know to expect from Styles is his anticipated second solo album, which he recently spilled to Rolling Stone is “all about having sex and feeling sad,” written as he mended his heart following a breakup with French model Camille Rowe .
