When two admirers saw Harry Styles passing by, they felt a delicate balance between astonishment and surprise.
On Thursday, the 29-year-old ex-One Direction member was exercising with his trainer Brad Gould in Bagnoregio, Italy when they came across two admirers whose mouths dropped when they recognised the musician.
Styles passed by the fans as they were eating at a restaurant wearing fluorescent pink shorts, a navy long-sleeve shirt, and a baseball cap. Gould, a strength and conditioning coach who has assisted Styles in staying in shape during his tours, was following after him.
Styles is rumoured to possess property near the small, mostly deserted settlement of Civita di Bagnoregio, which can only be reached on foot by a pedestrian bridge.
The As It Was singer was also sighted on Friday in Bolsena, Italy, where he was seen relaxing on a yacht with friends James Corden and Jacquelyn Jablonski, Victoria's Secret model.
Styles can be seen in one of the photographs received by the New York Post's Page Six topless and donning short green swim trunks with a leg tattoo that appears to say "Olivia."
Online rumours persisted that Styles' ex-girlfriend Olivia Wilde, 39, is the inspiration behind the penned body art.
On the set of their movie, Don't Worry Darling, the co-stars got to know one another in September 2020. They made their public debut as a couple in January 2021 when they attended a wedding together. Following Wilde's long-term union with Jason Sudeikis, with whom she has two children, their romance began.
Styles' social media fan accounts commented that it's probable the Grammy winner acquired the "Olivia" tattoo when he and Wilde were still dating, even though Styles and Wilde amicably split up in November 2022. It's simply that it's easier to see now.
