Harry Styles' accent in Don't Worry Darling divides fans
A scene from the movie has been released, but Harry's accent is proving to be a point of contention.
A clip from Olivia Wilde's upcoming film Don't Worry Darling has been released, and it's dividing Harry Styles' fans.
The psychological thriller seems the One Direction star play opposite Florence Pugh as a married couple in the 1950s living a seemingly idyllic life until Alice (Pugh) digs a little deeper into her husband's company and the town they live in.

In the latest clip, we see the characters argue in their home, but some fans were distracted by Harry Styles' accent, with many on Twitter trying to figure out where he is supposed to be from.
One wrote: "Harry Styles sounds like someone who's not British trying to do a British accent."

Other fans came to Harry's defence, with many claiming he's just using his own accent as someone from the north of England.
One tweeted: "Are people criticising that #DontWorryDarling clip just because Harry Styles is using his normal accent? It really feels like a damning indictment of how few Northern accents people get to hear in media."

Another shared: "It is a bit embarrassing seeing Americans making fun of his northern accent here without realising that this is just what people in northern England sound like."

The past few years have been busy enough for Harry. As well as launching a super-successful solo career and embarking on a world tour, he has become no stranger to the screen. In 2017, he made his debut in Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk. As well as Don't Worry Darling, he'll also appear in My Policeman alongside Emma Corrin from The Crown.
Don't Worry Darling is set for a September release.
