Harvey Weinstein offered Harry Styles a role in new film Tulip Fever


Unfortunately Harry, 20, had to turn down what would have been his acting debut due to touring commitments – his boyband are currently on their Where We Are world tour.

The famed producer, whose company is behind blockbusters such as Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction and Shakespeare in Love, told MailOnline: "I offered Harry a role in Tulip Fever but he was touring so he had to turn it down.

"The part ended up going to (Glee star) Matthew Morrison and let me tell you this, the very first scene he shot was one of him kissing Cara Delevingne."

"So I'm sure Harry won't be turning be down the next role I offer him," he quipped.

When asked what made him offer the pop star the role, Harvey said: "He's like Errol Flynn, he's got that swashbuckling charm. Definite star potential. I think he'd be great. No question."

Directed by Justin Chadwick (The Other Boleyn Girl), Tulip Fever is set in 17th-century Amsterdam and centres on an illicit love affair between an older artist and his wealthy young muse.
