The Extra Body Parts You Didn't Know Harry Styles Had

Harry Styles has been a heartthrob for more than a decade. An audition on "The X Factor UK" in 2010 led to him joining Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik to form One Direction, with the group releasing five albums before parting ways in 2016. Since then, Styles has launched his own successful solo career, winning his first Grammy in 2021 for Best Pop Solo Performance for his hit, "Watermelon Sugar." 

Styles also made his acting debut in the 2017 film "Dunkirk," and is slated to appear in "Don't Worry Darling, which is directed by girlfriend Olivia Wilde, in the fall of 2022. He also popped up at the end of the Marvel film "Eternals" as Thanos' brother Enos. "I kept tabs on Harry since 'Dunkirk,' I thought he was very interesting. After meeting him I realized he is that character — the same way I cast the rest of my cast. There's so much of Eros in him," the movie's director, Chloé Zhao, told Deadline.

For his legion of fans, Styles playing a god isn't too far fetched. In fact, a study by the Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery found that Styles is one of the best looking people in the world, beating out Jamie Foxx, David Beckham, Idris Elba and Ryan Gosling, according to Ace Showbiz. And the singer has something else these other men don't: two extra nipples!

Harry Styles has a common condition that cause extra nipples on the body

During an interview with Chelsea Handler, Harry Styles confirmed what fans had long suspected: he has two extra nipples. "There's a rumor on the Internet that you have four nipples. Have you heard that?" Handler asked, to which Styles replied, "Correct." Surprised, Handler said, "You do?" and he answered, "Yeah." He even pointed out where they were, albiet over his shirt.

The extra nipples are considered supernumerary (aka extra) caused by a common condition called polythelia. "When the body develops, sometimes nipple forming cells accidentally migrate down the chest below the normal nipple," Dr. Joshua Zeichner told Allure. "Supernumerary nipples can develop anywhere on the chest, armpit, even belly or into the groin, along a vertical line below the nipple, known as the 'embryonic milk line.'"

Styles seems pretty unfazed about having four nipples. But what does make him uncomfortable is being considered a sex symbol. "Honestly I'd say I try and think about it as little as possible, because it's a very strange, dynamic thing," he said (via People). "It's also like a weird thing to think of about yourself. I guess the thing with sex in general, is like, it used to feel so much more taboo for me. Even like when we were in the band, the thought of people thinking that I had sex was like, oh no, that's crazy. What if they know?"
