Harry Styles spoke to Rolling Stone about his career, relationships with women, acceptance of his sexuality, and also talked about his role in My Policeman, a new feature film that will premiere in theatres in October.
As Harry Styles said, the film is not only about a gay couple, but above all about love. “This is not like the usual gay story about these guys being gay,” said 28-year-old Harry Styles. “It’s about love and wasted time for me.”
“I think that everyone has their own path to understand sexuality and to feel more comfortable with it. For me,” My Cop “is a story about love and wasted time … Now it’s completely incomprehensible to think:” Oh, you can’t be gay.” Because it’s illegal…” Styles said.
Styles said the film is unique, like most gay love stories, because it creates a sense of naturalness rarely seen on screen.
“There’s so much homosexuality in movies – when it’s just two men, and it sort of takes the tenderness out of it,” Styles added, noting that director Michael Grandage “wanted to show gay love as it often is – “gentle and sensual”.

Emma Corrin, David Dawson and Rupert Everett are also involved in the film. Its storyline echoes between past and present.
Styles plays a young Tom Burgess, a Brighton cop who seeks to understand his identity at a time when homosexuality was criminalized in England and LGBT people were routinely imprisoned.
The Crown star Emma Corrin plays Marion, Tom’s wife. David Dawson as Patrick, Tom’s lover. Linus Roach is busy as the modern-day Tom. Gina McKee plays the aged Marion. Rupert Everett – Patrick in the present.
The Policeman premieres in theatres in October and on Prime Video in November.
