Nolan, who has helmed blockbusters like The Dark Knight and Inception – has revealed he had no clue who Harry Styles was when he cast him in his latest epic Dunkirk.
That noise you hear is the sound of tween girls everywhere screaming!
“I don’t think I was that aware really of how famous Harry was,” Nolan told the Associated Press. “I mean, my daughter had talked about him. My kids talked about him, but I wasn’t really that aware of it.”
Um, doesn’t he know Styles also dated Taylor Swift?! WHATEVER!
But Nolan made sure to emphasize why he did want the budding thespian in his new WWII film.
“So the truth is, I cast Harry because he fit the part wonderfully and truly earned a seat at the table.”
Crisis averted! Stand down, tween girls of the world! Stand down!
