Harry Styles Has A Crush On Dylan Penn: Maybe Harry Has Found His Hollywood Mentor In Sean Penn

Harry Styles has reportedly found the next famous face he hopes to date, and she has a very intimidating father. According to recent rumors, Harry is getting his flirt on with Dylan Penn, the gorgeous model daughter of notoriously ill-tempered actor Sean Penn and actress Robin Wright.

According to Hollywood Life, a source revealed that 22-year-old Harry Styles has developed a little crush on 24-year-old Dylan Penn. Luckily for Harry, rumor has it that Dylan is also a fan of the boy band star with a history of dating gorgeous celebrities. Harry’s pretty past conquests include Kendall Jenner, Taylor Swift, and Victoria’s Secret model Nadine Leopold.

“Harry likes her. And she thinks he’s really cute,” a source told Us Weekly of Harry’s feelings for Dylan. However, it sounds like the singer and the model are taking things very slow — so far the only step they’ve taken toward coupling up is to start following each other on Instagram. As the Inquisitr previously reported, there were rumors that Harry tried to pursue Bradley Cooper’s ex-girlfriend, model Suki Waterhouse, in a similar manner — he started liking her Instagram photos to let her know that he was interested. However, it looks like his liking spree failed to produce any results.

Harry Styles seems to have a thing for girls who have been linked to famous guys. In 2013, PEOPLE reported that Dylan Penn was dating Twilight star Robert Pattinson. However, according to Celebuzz, the model/actress later told Italian Vanity Fair that she Rob are just good pals.

“We’re just friends. They photographed us in a place where there were other people and cropped the picture. Silly. I laughed about it.”

If Harry moves fast, maybe he can score an invite to Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs’ upcoming wedding as Dylan’s plus one. And if Harry is really lucky, maybe Sean Penn will give him a few acting tips. As the Inquisitr previously reported, there are rumors that Harry is interested in getting into acting. He’s met with producer Harvey Weinstein, and his pal Zach Braff has been giving him acting tips. However, Penn would be able to offer Harry Styles invaluable advice about becoming a respected star — he knows what it’s like to completely reinvent himself. Penn had to work hard to prove that he was capable of taking on serious, award-bait roles after first making waves as perpetually-baked surfer Jeff Spicoli in Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

If Penn wants to see if there’s any hope for Harry Styles, he could always check out the singer’s performance in a behind-the-scenes video for One Direction’s “Between Us” fragrance ad. In the recently-released video, Harry says he’s going to do some “method acting” to perfect his mountain climbing scene.

If Harry Styles does manage to win Dylan Penn’s heart, he better tread lightly around her famous father. During an interview with Esquire, Sean Penn recounted what he said to one of Dylan’s past boyfriends after meeting the nervous young man for the first time.

“Just let me say one thing to you: Whatever you do with my daughter tonight, I’m gonna do with you when you get home.”

Harry Styles is either really brave or really crazy.
