What we learned from the Rollling Stone cover of Harry Styles.
Styles was nervous about starring in Don’t Worry Darling.
Alongside actors like Florence Pugh, Chris Pine, Gemma Chan and Nick Kroll, Styles was initially quite anxious.
“In music, there’s such an immediate response to what you’re doing. You finish a song and people clap. When you’re filming and they say ‘Cut’, maybe there’s a part of you that’s wait for everyone to start clapping, [but] they don’t,” Styles said. “Everyone, obviously, goes back to doing their job, and you’re like, ‘Oh shit, was that that bad?'”
Listen to The Spill episode about Florence Pugh and Olivia Wilde’s secret “feud.” The story continues below.
wilde said rolling stone there was one scene that “left us all in tears”.
“It’s an eerie scene, full of fascist references and a disturbing amount of male rage. The scene called for her to take the stage with Frank [Chris Pine] and chant their chilling slogan, ‘Whose world is it? Ours!’ again and again. Dark as hell. But Harry took it to another level. He was so in the moment that he started shouting the lines to the crowd, in this primal roar, which was way more intense than anything we expected from the stage,” she said.
“The cameraman followed him as he roamed the stage like some kind of wild animal. We were all slapped by the monitor. I think even Harry was surprised by it. These are the best moments for an actor – when you are completely outside your body.”
He memorized every line to audition for My Policeman.
After shooting don’t worry darlingStyles has set his sights on My Policemanwhich tells the 1950s story of a policeman who falls in love with a museum curator named Patrick.
Styles read the script, requested a meeting with director Michael Grandage, and showed up with every line seared into his brain. He got the role.
“It’s obviously pretty incomprehensible now to think, ‘Oh, you couldn’t be gay. That was illegal,'” he said. “I think everyone, myself included, has their own journey to understanding sexuality and feeling more comfortable with it.”
The human connection at the heart of the story was what appealed to him the most.
“It’s not like, ‘This is a gay story about these guys who are gay.’ It’s about love and wasted time for me… A lot of the gay sex in the movie is two guys getting into it, and it sort of takes away the tenderness. , I imagine, people watching it who were alive and well in those days when it was illegal to be gay, and [Michael] wanted to show that he is tender, loving and sensitive.”
It may take some time before you see Styles on the screen again.
“I don’t imagine I’ll be making a movie for a while,” he said. rolling stone. And no, it does nothing star wars movies, despite the rumors.
However, he did not rule out roles in the future. “I think there will still be a time when I feel like it,” he said.
