In a recent interview with The Sun to promote his new single “Back To You,” Louis acknowledged the deep respect he’s always had for Harry. “In a band, you’re going to get some people who get on really well and some people who get on quite well,” Louis explained. “I have forever had a very, very high level of respect for Harry. He’s great in this situation, he’s great on stage, he’s a great musician and artist. It’s just one of those things that happens naturally in a band.”
But he couldn’t deny that the constant rumors about the nature of his relationship with Harry ultimately made their friendship awkward. “It kind of happened naturally for me and Harry because a certain amount of the fans drew up this conspiracy,” Louis said about the Larry Stylinson conspiracy theories. “When it first came around I was with Eleanor, and it actually felt a little bit disrespectful to Eleanor, who is my girlfriend now. I’m so protective over things like that, about the people I love.”
Louis said the fear that fans would overanalyze every minor interaction between the two stars caused them to stay away from one another. “It created this atmosphere between the two of us where everyone was looking into everything we did,” Louis said candidly. “It took away the vibe you get off anyone. It made everything, I think on both fences, a little bit more unapproachable.”
If anything, Louis thinks it further proves there was never anything romantic between them. “I think it shows that it was never anything real, if I can use that word,” he said.
But it’s a testament to Harry and Louis’ enduring PLATONIC friendship that despite all the awkwardness Larry fans caused between them, Louis still has a deep respect and love for Harry. So much so that he can’t imagine One Direction going on without him. “It’s something that I can’t ever imagine, really,” Louis admitted when the idea of 1D going on as a three-piece without Harry came up. “I feel like it’s got to be for the fans, and not for the three that want to get back together. Harry is actually an inspiring person to watch as a businessman, as a musician. He doesn’t really lose, Harry.”
