Louis Tomlinson Slams ‘Weird’ Erotic Fanfics About Him and Harry Styles
Former One Direction member Louis Tomlinson is making his stance known on the wave of erotic fan fiction stories written about him and bandmate Harry Styles.
In an interview with the Telegraph, Tomlinson slammed the "weird" fanfics about the members of 1D.
"It’s weird, all that s--t. But there’s not much you can do about it," he opined.
Addressing the movies being created from such fanfics — actress Anne Hathaway is set to star in The Idea of You, which was inspired by Styles — Tomlinson said he'd "rather they didn’t, like, but it is what it is. I won’t be watching it."
This isn't the first time that Tomlinson has spoken out against questionable fanfics. He previously criticized the show Euphoria for featuring a scene adapted from a "Larry Stylinson" fan fiction.
"I’m not gonna lie, I was pissed off. It annoyed me that a big company would get behind it," he told The Guardian at the time.
Elsewhere in his Telegraph interview, Tomlinson spoke about Styles' success and jealousy.
"I’d be lying if I said it didn’t bother me at first. Only ['cause] I didn’t know where to place myself, and really my only point of reference was other members of the band," he shared.
However, he did praise Styles, calling him the "mold of a modern star."
"It’s not surprising to me that Harry's the most commercially successful because he really fits the mold of a modern star. He’s not just doing music, he’s got film as well. The tour he’s done is unbelievable," Tomlinson said.
Tomlinson's latest interview comes as he gears up to release his new album, Faith in the Future, Nov. 11.
