Harry Styles takes break from films as ‘a large part of acting is doing nothing’

Harry Styles has revealed that he has no plans to do any further films "for a while", after taking a starring role in girlfriend Olivia Wilde's Don't Worry Darling (2022) and same-sex romance My Policeman (2022).

The former One Direction band member, and current solo superstar, told Rolling Stone that he would be turning his focus back to music and touring his latest album Harry's House, which dropped to wide acclaim in May.

The musician made his first step into film playing a supporting role in Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk (2017), before taking on the two smaller projects due to come out over the next few months.

In the interview, Styles said he could not see himself taking on any further film roles in the immediate future, saying: “I don’t imagine I’d do a movie for a while.”

“I think there’ll be a time again when I’ll crave [acting]. But when you’re making music, something’s happening.

"It feels really creative, and it feeds stuff. A large part of acting is the doing nothing, waiting thing. Which if that’s the worst part, then it’s a pretty good job.

"But I don’t find that section of it to be that fulfilling. I like doing it in the moment, but I don’t think I’ll do it a lot."

This could be a disappointment to fans of both Marvel films and Harry Styles, who hoped to see more of the 28-year-old after he appeared in the post-credits scene of Eternals (2021) as Thanos's brother Eros.

Sometimes known as "Starfox", Styles' character Eros is the promiscuous son of a titan, more powerful than most of the current cast of superheroes, who variously aids the Avengers in big battles – at least in the Marvel comics.

Marvel-Styles fans should not be too fearful, considering industry insiders told the Sun in July that Styles signed a $100 million five-movie deal with Marvel to play Eros – so the pop star is likely not counting his superhero work.
