Harry Styles spoke about those Prince Eric “Little Mermaid” rumours during an interview with Capital FM this week.
Harry was trending worldwide after being linked to the part, but he insisted the scheduling just wouldn’t have worked out for him.
When asked what happened, the One Direction star said: “I had, you know, a meeting with Rob Marshall the director, who is the most wonderful man, he’s great.
“And it was just, honestly, it was just a few things.”
He added: “It just, it wasn’t… erm… I think it’s gonna be amazing, obviously it’s an amazing film, and I can tell Roman [host Kemp]’s watching how I’m kind of worming… how’s he gonna worm his way [out of] this one.”
Styles continued, “They shoot for so long and I want to tour next year and stuff maybe. Potentially, maybe not, I haven’t announced that yet.
“It just didn’t quite line up.”
The musician also spoke about his new single “Lights Up”, his double duties on “Saturday Night Live”, and the reason he looked so shiny in his latest music video.
