Harry Styles' acting advice from Danny DeVito

Danny DeVito encouraged Harry Styles to become an actor.

It was recently reported that Harry has landed a leading role in Christopher Nolan's latest movie 'Dunkirk' and Danny claims that he advised Harry and his One Direction bandmates to try acting during their hiatus but joked that the 22-year-old singer needs some improvement.

Danny, who appeared in 1D's 'Steal My Girl' video, told the New York Daily News' confidential column: "The big thing I told One Direction when they were breaking up was that they should take all their money and get some acting lessons. I am delighted for Harry. Harry is going to do a good movie with Christopher Nolan.

"He is like a natural, a handsome guy and is good. And he needs to work on his skills a little.

"We had a wonderful time making the video. The guys were really great for me."

Harry is not the only One Direction singer to be linked to a movie role recently, as Louis Tomlinson, 24, is believed to be the leading candidate to play soccer star Jamie Vardy in the Hollywood movie documenting the Leicester striker's incredible rags to riches story.

Producer Adrian Buchart is believed to have reached out to Louis about starring in the film, which will document Jamie's rise from Stocksbridge Park Steels to a Premier League title challenger with Leicester.
