They sing together, they dance together and they laugh together.
But Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles want to make one thing clear: they are not... together!
With numerous blogs and YouTube videos dedicated to "Larry Stylinson," Louis and Harry spoke to Storyboard this week and made a point of shooting down talk they are actually a couple.
"This is a subject that was funny at first but now is actually hard to deal with in a relationship," says Tomlinson, who is dating 20-year-old model Eleanor Calder.
"Me and Harry are best friends, people look into our every move - it is actually affecting the way me and Harry are in public. We want to joke around, but there seems to be a different rumor every time we do anything. I act the same way with Harry as I do [with] any of the other boys and my childhood friend Stan."
Fair enough. Such honesty, we suppose, is what makes Tomlinson beautiful.
