Fans of One Direction star Harry Styles will know that he has a bit of a ‘thing’ for older women, and has previously dated Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack, and DJ Lucy Horobin, both of whom were a good few years old than him…
However, we fear Harry may have taken his penchant for older women too far as it’s been reported today that he kissed Shameless actress Alice Barry – who plays brothel keeper Lillian in the Channel 4 show – who is 66 years old.
Personally, as I’m the one writing this, I’m just glad she’s not 69 years old, because the headline of this post could’ve become unpalatable, if not illegal in some countries…
However, moving on and the Daily Star reports, “In real life Alice Barry is ¬fighting off male admirers, from ¬obsessed Dutch fans to One ¬Direction star Harry Styles.
“The 19-year-old singer grabbed Alice for a ‘snog’ after spotting her leaving a Manchester hotel during the filming of the final series of the show.”
Alice told the paper, “This lad grabbed hold of me and said ‘Lillian I love you, can I have a kiss and a picture?’
“I didn’t have a clue who he was. I was like ‘We’ll have to be quick’. He gave me a snog and took a picture.
“The rest of the cast were watching from the car and said ‘That was Harry Styles’.”
However, there’s bad news for Hazza in that Alice, who lives in Blackpool with her “platonic soulmate” Jeff Hirst, has “no interest” in romance and hasn’t had since her husband Terry died nine years ago.
Alice said of Jeff, “We’ve been together for seven years. Jeff manages me. We’re soulmates.
“We just hit it off and we trust each other 100%. We share a room and it’s totally platonic. We kiss and cuddle but that’s it.
“I’m happy not to have that in my life. Terry was the love of my life and the only man I had that kind of relationship with. I never wanted anybody else.”
Aww bless her! Here’s a reminder of an entertainment news report about Harry’s love of the older ladies…
