Harry Styles did not like people knowing about his sex life during his One Direction days.
“For a long time, it felt like the only thing that was mine was my sex life,” the “X Factor” heartthrob, now 28, told “Better Homes and Gardens.”
“I felt so ashamed about it, ashamed at the idea of people even knowing that I was having sex, let alone who with.”
Harry Styles admitted that “there were still the kiss-and-tell things.”
“Working out who I could trust was stressful,” he explained.
“But I think I got to a place where I was like, ‘Why do I feel ashamed? I’m a 26-year-old man who’s single.’ It’s like, ‘Yes, I have sex.’”
Harry Styles has been dating actress Olivia Wilde for over a year and told the outlet that he has no plans to discuss his sexual orientation publicly.
“Working out who I could trust was stressful,” he admitted.
“I’ve been really open with it with my friends, but that’s my personal experience, it’s mine,” he stated.
“The whole point of where we should be heading, which is toward accepting everybody and being more open, is that it doesn’t matter, and it’s about not having to label everything, not having to clarify what boxes you’re checking.”
