Harry Styles has “no idea” what he’s doing with acting
don’t worry darling celebrated its world premiere in September 2022 at the Venice International Film Festival. At a press conference promoting the film, Styles spoke about how the experience of being an actor differs from that of a world-famous musician.
“Making music is a very personal thing,” he said. “There are aspects of acting where you draw on experience a bit, but mostly you’re pretending to be playing someone else. That’s what I find most interesting about it. You can help each other in a way. Any time you see the world through a different lens, it can help to create however you can. I really think it’s different. I think the fun part is that you never know what you’re doing in either one.”
“What I like about acting is that I feel like I have no idea what I’m doing,” he added.
“It’s fun playing in worlds that aren’t necessarily your own,” he continued. “This [Don’t Worry Darling] The world is supposedly so perfect. It was fun playing in it. It’s like driving fun cars. We were fortunate that this world was built around us so well that we could play in reality instead of pretending everything was nice.”
Styles was also roasted on social media for naming his favorite thing about the film. “You know, my favorite thing about the movie is that it feels like a movie,” he said. “It feels like a real ‘Go to the Theater’ movie.”
