Mark Rylance says his 'Dunkirk' co-star Harry Styles has a "gift" when it comes to acting and insists he doesn't need any tips on being a Hollywood star
Harry Styles doesn't need any acting tips, according to Mark Rylance.
The One Direction star - who is making his acting debut in Hollywood movie 'Dunkirk' - has a "gift" and Mark admits he is surprised by how "witty and funny" his co-star is.
He said: "What's really surprised me is he's really witty, really funny - he really makes me laugh. He's been ever so brave, not making any fuss.
"He seems remarkable ... one of those people who has - Sean Penn has it too - a kind of panache. I look at them and think, 'How did you get that? How do you get so that life is easy?' But he has got a lovely, lovely character. It's a gift."
However, Harry being on set has caused one issue for the film's crew - there are girls "all over the place trying to get to him".
Mark added to London's Evening Standard newspaper: "There are girls all over the place trying to get to him. He is one handsome fella with an incredible smile and eyes."
Meanwhile, Harry's bandmate Niall Horan previously revealed he thinks Harry will "do well" in Hollywood.
He said: "I'll tell you what, if Christopher Nolan takes you on you must be a good actor. I'm looking forward to seeing it, it's going to be an unbelievable movie but when one of your mates is in it then it's going to be even better.
"I think he is going to do well. I actually met this guy on the Tube the other day who's doing special effects on the movie and he told me that, yeah, apparently Harry is a good actor."
However, Niall thinks Harry would have been "nervous" about shaving off his hair for the big role.
He shared: "I'd imagine he was pretty nervous. He spent about two years growing that so I wouldn't say he was too happy about it but it is what it is, he's in a movie now."
