Actress Lindsay Lohan once turned down Harry Styles because she had no idea who he was.
The Hollywood star claims the One Direction heartthrob knocked on her hotel room at 2 a.m., after his friends had told him she was having a party. Lindsay admits she didn’t recognize Harry—who has previously dated stars including Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner—and turned him away.
“He was in a suit. I said, ‘Well, you’re very good-looking—can I help you?’ That was it,” Lindsay told Britain’s The Sun newspaper.
“He was like, ‘I’m Harry. Gavin and Michael sent me here.’ I was in bed. I was like, ‘I’m going to bed but it was nice to meet you.’
“It was 2 a.m., I had just come back from an AA meeting. I looked like s**t too. I was wearing a big hotel robe, I had a slip under it. It was not a good look. I was watching some really cheesy movie too. You could totally hear it in the background.
“It didn’t click who he was at the time. I told my sister the next day and she was like, ‘Wait, are you kidding me? Do you understand? Do you have his number? Can I have it?’”
Lindsay admits that following the encounter they both find it difficult whenever they run into each other.
“I saw him in LA recently,” she explained. “I think it’s probably awkward on both our parts now.”
Lindsay, who turns 30 in July, says she feels more settled now despite a turbulent past. The star thanks meditation for a calmer lifestyle, revealing she feels more in control of herself nowadays.
She has also found love and is currently dating Russian businessman Egor Tarabasov.
“I haven’t known Egor for that long. We’ve been together for about seven months,” she revealed. “But I do have a boyfriend and he is a great guy. I met him in the summer. I’m really happy.”
Lindsay finds it frustrating when the men she has been romantically linked to are credited for turning her life around. The 29-year-old actress insists she has been solely responsible for cleaning up her act.
“If I have ever been linked to someone, they always say, ‘This guy is so good for Lindsay, look at how he has changed her.’ I am just like, ‘F**k you’, because I have done this for me. I take care of myself and then they just set it up to fail.”
