Harry Styles has said he looks up to David Beckham, but that so does everyone his age so it's not a very original idol to have.

The One Direction star told OK! magazine, "I think he was everybody's idol when I was growing up. When people asked you that question, you almost needed a back-up answer because everyone would say, 'David Beckham'."

Styles was lucky enough to meet his idol in Los Angeles at one of their shows, "We actually met once when we were performing in LA. He brought his kids to our concert. He's a really nice guy."

Styles and the rest of the boy band all attended the premiere screening of Beckham's film Class of '92 and was pictured with the football legend on the red carpet.
