Harry Styles has insisted that he isn't a womaniser and would never brag about his conquests.
The One Direction star - who has been linked to a string of women including Caroline Flack and DJ Lucy Horobin since finding fame on The X Factor - told The Sun he doesn't see himself that way and thinks people sometimes get the wrong impression.
"I don't want to be viewed as a womaniser or whatever," he said.
"I'm not quite as I'm made out to be. I have friends who are girls and sometimes even if I give them a lift home I'm 'dating them', or whatever.
"It's fine, I have a lot of fun. I think that's important. You don't want to look back with any regrets, but at the same time if I met someone who I got on with and I liked then who knows?"
The 18-year-old went on: "I don't really want to say the names of people I might like - it wouldn't be right. I know a lot of people are up for sitting down and going through who they have slept with. I know sometimes it might come across in the paper that I'm a bit like that, but I'm really not."
Harry also revealed that he has been reading the steamy 'mummy porn' hit 50 Shades Of Grey and considers it to be "educational".
He said: "I haven't bought it, but a female friend of mine was forcing me to read it out to her the other day. They were like, 'Just borrow this', and I was like, 'Hmmm'. It seems interesting. I could probably learn from it, I don't know. I feel like it's an educational and interesting read."
