Singer-actor and ruler of hearts, Harry Styles is gearing up for his upcoming movie Don’t Worry Darling and is also getting all the praise for his recently released single ‘As It Was’, which is now a huge sensation.
However, did you know that the singer who is also paving his way to be an actor in Hollywood had auditioned for the role of the biopic of the legendary singer Elvis Presley?
Yes, you heard right! During a recent chat on The Howard Stern Show, Harry Styles revealed that he had auditioned for the role in the Baz Luhrmann biopic, but lost out to Austin Butler. oooh! That’s sad.
During his time on the show, Harry Styles also revealed that he was a huge fan of the legendary singer Elvis Presley. He said: “Elvis was probably the first person I met outside of my family when I was a very young child, so there was something incredibly sacred about it that I felt like I should try it, but I was very intrigued.” His sister Gemma also revealed how much of an Elvis fan Harry is for the Express. She said: “He used to do a pretty good Elvis kind of trill. He would sing in the bathroom because if it was him singing as himself, he just couldn’t have anyone looking at him!”
Well, Gemma revealed a fun fact about Harry Styles. She revealed that Styles would eventually use the Elvis style to practice for the X Factor audition and his style led to his being a member of the more famous (but now disbanded) group One Direction. Surprising right?
We’re sure Harry would have nailed the role of Elvis in the biopic. However, we’re also very excited to see how Austin Butler performs as the legendary singer in the Baz Luhrmann biopic. It should be noted that actors such as Miles Teller, Angel Elgort, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson also auditioned for the role, but lost out to Butler.
