‘My Policeman’ director speaks on Harry Styles’ gay sex scenes

International sex symbol and LGBTQ ally Harry Styles will perform his first gay sex scene in the highly anticipated film ‘My Policeman’ directed by Michael Grandage.

Grandage recently spoke about the process of filming these intimate moments with Styles, who stars as an undercover cop in the 1950s drama.

In a Vanity Fair interview published Thursday, the filmmaker described the film’s sex scenes as lovemaking “in the broadest sense of the word, something that was choreographically interesting and not just some sort of urgent sense of sex going on.”

As Vanity Fair put it, Grandage wanted to avoid “lust” while blocking out those sequences, which he says were inspired by the “very sculptural” body language of the 1959 Alain Resnais film Hiroshima Mon Amour.

Based on Bethan Roberts’ novel of the same name, My Policeman follows a gay police officer named Tom (Styles) who falls in love with a male museum curator (David Dawson) while married to a teacher (Emma Corrin).

“When they’re together, these two men seem free,” Grandage told Vanity Fair. “And then when he has to have sex or make love with his wife, he doesn’t seem to have that freedom, even in his body language.”

Distributed by Amazon, My Policeman hits theaters on October 21, almost exactly a month after Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling, also starring Styles, hits theaters. A streaming release on Amazon Prime Video will follow on November 4th.

In an April interview with Capital FM, Styles warned against watching any of his hot upcoming projects “with your parents,” and joked that in the future he’ll need to do “another” movie that’s more family-friendly. The pop musician also shared what it was like filming sex scenes for the first time as his acting career took off.

“All I can say from personal experience is that I’ve been very fortunate to have a very trusting relationship with the people we’ve worked with,” he said.

“Above all, what happens, we do this together and we trust each other. … we can stop at any time and so on. … I had never done that before — at least on camera.”

Ever since he emerged as a featured member of British-Irish boy band One Direction, fans have long speculated about Style’s sex life and sexuality, which he openly discussed in an interview with Better Homes & Gardens earlier this year.

Initially, Styles said he was “ashamed of the idea that people even know” he was having sex — “let alone with whom.”

“But I think I got to a point where I was like, why am I ashamed?” he told the magazine. “I am a 26-year-old man who is single; It’s like, yeah, I’m having sex.”

On his sexuality, Styles said, “I’ve been very open about it with my friends, but that’s my personal experience; it belongs to me.”

“The whole point of where we should go, which is to accept everyone and be more open, is that it doesn’t matter, and it’s about not labeling everything, not clarifying what boxes you tick,” he added .

With My Policeman and Don’t Worry Darling on the horizon, fans of the Harry’s House artist in Los Angeles are bracing for a Harry Styles plunge just days after My Policeman hits theaters , the pop sensation will play his first of 15 consecutive shows at The Forum in Inglewood.

Tickets for the concert series in LA, which starts on October 23rd and ends on November 15th, are already sold out.
