Harry Styles is hitting the trail for the “Dunkirk” press campaign. The singer may have a relatively small role in the World War II movie, but his fame is a major boon to the movie’s visibility–even if director Christopher Nolan doesn’t know who he is. In a new interview with Access Hollywood, Harry talked about what went into cutting off his signature long hair for the role.
“When I auditioned for a movie that was set in World War II, I imagined I’d probably have to have a little trim,” Harry said with a smile and a chuckle. “It kind of went without saying and I was so excited to be involved in the movie, I didn’t really think too much.” Harry was highly motivated to get involved with the project, and he explained what drew him to the chance to be on the silver screen.
“I was so excited about this film,” Harry said. “I’m such a massive fan of Chris’s films.” The chance to work with the “Inception” director might’ve drawn Harry into this project, but he’s not ruling out future Hollywood parts even as he prepares for a massive tour.
“I haven’t really thought too much further ahead,” he said when asked if there was a future in movies for him. He did admit, “I loved doing this film.” Harry also joked about the prep work that went into his “Dunkirk” role.
