People can’t get enough of Harry Styles, but Harry Styles with a World War II-era hair swoop? His co-star Tom Hardy doesn’t stand a chance.
New photos from the set of Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan’s next project, reveal the celebrity teen heartthrob dressed in an oversized military jacket and pants while filming scenes in Swanage, Dorset. Poking his head out from a train window, the dirt-smeared singer (and now actor) is seen via The Daily Mail eating an apple and taking swigs from multiple bottles of beer as background actors wave him farewell.
Fans of the “One Direction” star fell in love with his long locks, but Styles chopped most of it off earlier this year to raise money for the Little Princess Trust, a charitable organization that using donated hair to made wigs for children who’ve lost hair due to medical issues. Yes, I’m not shamed to admit that I semi-regularly keep tabs on tweeny-bopper news.
Photographer Pierre Volot also posted a beautiful photo of the set glowing in the sunset — but not as beautiful as Styles, of course. See the photos below:

Styles is filming Dunkirk with Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, newcomer Fionn Whitehead, and James D’Arcy (Agent Carter). The film tells of the evacuation of Dunkirk that saved 330,000 lives as Allied soldiers were surrounded by German forces.
Rylance praised the film during an interview with Collider, saying:
Chris is the most serious and interesting filmmaker. Every great filmmaker at some moment makes a war film. But Chris’ script-writing is so brilliant that I think he has the potential to make a very, very powerful and simple, pure war film about a miraculous loss. I think it has the potential to be just a marvelous film.
Dunkirk is scheduled to open in theaters on July 21, 2017. Here’s the brief but official synopsis:
Dunkirk opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.
