Harry Styles enjoys a cuddle with an Aussie cutie…
One Direction’s Harry Styles recently tweeted a photo where he’s all cuddled up with a mystery cutie in Australia. So who’s the anonymous hottie? A singer, dancer, reality star, model? Well..actually, the hottie’s a Koala.
Now that One Direction is touring Australia and New Zealand, they’re incredibly busy. Between travelling and performing, they really don’t have much time to themselves. However, they manage to let their hair down occasionally. One such occasion was the day Harry snapped a pic of himself all cuddled up with a cute little friend.
The caption read simply: “Koala!” which must be Australian for “Just too cute for words.” Or perhaps, as one fan site put it: “too much cuteness for one picture!” One Direction fans were delighted of course. Some even commented that they too were animal lovers. Others opined that although the koala was cute, Styles was cuter. Right.
With all due respect to Harry Styles and his fans, the 1D guy is cute enough, but the real star of the photo is the koala. Styles is obviously doing his best to look adorable, sexy, and cool, combining a warmly winning smile with a rolled up shirt sleeve revealing the right amount of partially flexed left biceps.
Nice. Still, he’s no match for the koala whose natural charisma permeates the picture. She shows no signs of trying to impress. Au contraire, she’s just hanging around—her front paws on Styles’ shoulders, her face turned slightly away from both Harry and the camera, her eyes alert and intelligent, her expression ultimately enigmatic. She has real animal magnetism.
