Louis Tomlinson is the last member of One Direction who launched his solo career. Tomlinson dropped his new solo single, Back To You, last week. Now, the singer hinted that he would like to try something new, more specifically what Harry Styles did—acting.
Tomlinson admitted that he is open to the idea of appearing in a movie or TV series in the future like his bandmate, Styles. The Sign of Times singer landed a major role in Christopher Nolan’s epic World War II film, Dunkirk. Styles received positive reviews for his performance.
In an interview with BBC News, Tomlinson was asked if he receives film, modeling, or presenting offers after 1D announced an indefinite hiatus in 2015. He admitted that he got few TV appearance offers and said he is not like Styles. “Unless you are someone like Harry – who is immensely talented in so many different areas – I think it’s really important to stay in your lane and do what you do well,” Tomlinson said.
The Just Hold On singer, however, admitted that the idea of acting sounds “quite exciting” to him. “The idea of playing the ultimate rough chavvy — it’s like me being everyone I always wanted to be in Doncaster!” Tomlinson said.
However, it looks like the 1D member has no plan to fulfill this dream anytime soon. The father-of-one said he would rather focus on music for the time being. “I’d rather get the music 100% right, rather than 90% right while trying to dip my toe in something else,” he explained.
Louis Tomlinson Solo Album
The 25-year-old singer revealed that he hopes to release his first solo album before the year ends. However, Tomlinson said he doesn’t want to put too much pressure on himself and eventually ended up putting two fillers just to complete the album.
Tomlinson also admitted that most of the songs in his forthcoming album are about his girlfriend, fashion blogger Eleanor Calder. “You can hear my journey as an individual over these three years – leaving the band, then going out on to the really crazy party scene, and then I’ve kind of ended up full circle back with Eleanor, who I love dearly,” he said.
Louis Tomlinson Denies Larry Stylinson Romance Rumors
Tomlinson finally put the alleged romantic relationship between him and Styles to rest. The two One Direction members have been dogging the rumor that they are an item for quite some time now. Some Directioners also coined a name for them, Larry Stylinson.
For the first time, Tomlinson shot down the speculations in person but said he respects others’ opinion. “People can believe what they want to believe but I just think it comes across sometimes a little disrespectful to the ones that I love, like [girlfriend Eleanor Calder]. I think it’s one of these things that people love to buy into, but in reality, obviously, there’s no truth to it. Obviously,” he said in a Bizarre’s Big Biz Quiz video series (via Huffington Post).
In another interview with Bizarre’s Dan Wootton (via The Sun), Tomlinson admitted that the rumor affected his friendship with Styles. He said the buzz also created an atmosphere that made him and Styles become more mindful of their actions.
