Not to be dramatic, but One Direction’s break is kind of ruining my life.
It’s the first summer in years that I don’t have one of their concerts to look forward to, which will turn into the first fall in forever that I don’t have a new album to anticipate. The timing of this 1D drought is awful, and just so happens to coincide with my rude awakening of leaving college and being thrust into adulthood. To make things worse, Harry Styles cut his long, flowing, beautiful hair, which sent my world crashing down.
Just like Rapunzel’s in Tangled, the longer Harry’s hair grew, the more youthful and powerful I became. However, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, something good is remarkably coming from this series of unfortunate events. Harry donated his hair to the Little Princess Trust, and he will be starring in Dunkirk, a Christopher Nolan film set during World War II.
Even if it means the end of an era, aka the longest Harry’s hair has ever been, this movie has the potential to bring new life to not only me, but the Hollywood film industry as a whole. I feel like one of those moms on Toddlers and Tiaras who thinks their child is gifted and a total prodigy, but let’s be real. If anyone can pull off being the King of Pop and Cinema, it’s Harry Styles. I am beyond convinced that his movie role will be nothing short of pivotal, groundbreaking, and of course iconic, and I will tell you why.
1. He has already proven his acting abilities on the small screen.
I mean come on, have you SEEN the One Direction episode of iCarly? Where was the Emmy for that?
2. Harry reenacted the infamous pottery scene from "Ghost" with his bandmate, Niall and it was truly uncanny.
Just look at the passion channeled into his performance.
3. His acting in the "Best Song Ever" video genuinely stunned me, it was so good.
I guess the short hair was a foreshadowing of what was to come.
4. He also has proven his acting abilities in real life.
Remember when he convinced a good amount of people that his “relationship” with Taylor Swift was totally real and not cooked up in a PR office? It was truly a performance for the ages.
5. He’s Harry f***ing Styles.
He can be flawless at literally anything. The whole movie could be him assembling Ikea furniture for three hours and it would be a masterpiece. In all seriousness, I have no doubt that he’ll do amazing job in the film and shock everyone. Snatch that Oscar!
