During a recent interview with an Australian outlet (via U.K. site Metro), the 19-year-old One Direction singer was asked by a reporter, "Who is the most beautiful woman in the world other than your mother, sister or girlfriend?"
Styles replied, "Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, probably. It's her face."
Huntington-Whiteley, who's been with beau Jason Statham for several years, isn't exactly a stranger to Styles. The fellow Brits posed together earlier this year on the cover of Glamour with Styles' 1D bandmates.
"The lads are like puppies, they're adorable!" she told the mag of the 1D guys. "They've all got this little sparkle in their eye, and they're all just gorgeous. White, white eyes. Shiny, shiny teeth."
Huntington-Whiteley also shared some behind-the-scenes pics from the cover shoot on Instagram at the time. "@harrystyles and I behind the scenes of our @glamourmag cover shoot a few months ago! #throwbackthursday," she posted in June with a cozy pic of her and Styles.
She also shared a group shot of all six of them, writing, "Hanging out backstage at the @onedirection concert after our @glamourmag shoot. Lovely and talented lads."
And when their cover hit stands, she snapped a pic of the mag with the caption, "The 2nd cover of @glamourmag with the lovely @onedirection boys. Have you got your copy yet?!"
