The friendship between Harry Styles and Zach Braff may seem a little bit unexpected, but let it be known that the One Direction member might just be the best thing that’s ever happened to the actor/director’s new film Wish I Was Here.
Chatting about their bromance on Watch What Happens Live, Braff opened up about how knowing the 20-year-old singer changed his life.
“No matter where I go now, people bring up Harry Styles. I was just leaving 30 Rock today and people were like ‘say hi to Harry for me. My whole life now is that I’m friends with Harry Styles,” he said.
“I just met Harry through friends and he’s he’s a super-nice guy and he was cool enough to come to Sundance and see our movie. Then he tweeted out that he cried during the movie and then it went viral…it was the best press we ever had.”
Making things escalate very quickly, host Andy Cohen then made the conversation a little awkward.
“How long did you guys date?” he asked.
“Just til I came,” Braff replied cheekily.
While we’re sure that would have been hot, we’re just glad the two have formed a loving friendship. Because you know what they say,”Bros who spoon together, always stay together.” (We made that up)
For those of you asking, @Harry_Styles is a dynamite spooner.
