Harry Styles Squirms When Asked Who His Celebrity Crush Is
One Direction's Harry Styles might be kissing -- but he sure isn't telling!
Though a source close to Taylor Swift tells the new issue of Us Weekly the country queen thinks the 1D hunk is "so cute," the British crooner, 18, isn't willing to name Swift as his celebrity crush just yet.
Chatting with Extra's A.J. Calloway in New York City with his bandmates, Styles shied away from fessing up when Calloway questioned the One Direction boys -- including Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne -- about their celebrity dream girls.
"Me and Louis have girlfriends," Malik told Calloway. Added Horan, "The rest of us are . . . single Pringles." Though single Horan quickly named new mom Megan Fox as his No. 1 A-list leading lady, Styles squirmed a bit and refused to name Swift -- or any other female star.

His only requirement for a love match? "Someone you have fun with and get along with and is nice," Styles said.
Splitting from Conor Kennedy in October, Swift has turned her romantic interests to Styles -- a romance that has been many months in the making. The country superstar, 22, "has had a crush on Styles since the two exchanged numbers at Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards in March, says a pal: "She thinks he's so cute!"
Indeed, the feeling appears to be mutual. At a Nov. 15 X Factor taping in L.A., Styles flirted up a storm with the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer. Spending much of the day with Swift, Styles watched the singer rehearse -- along with her mom! -- and even sang along. After walking hand-in-hand on set, the duo made a dramatic, romantic exit: "Harry picked her up and carried her to the trailer!" a witness confirmed.
