Styles 'wants Clint Eastwood's physique'

Harry Styles

Harry Styles has apparently been taking exercise advice from Clint Eastwood, including taking up Krav Maga.

The legendary actor and director celebrated his 84th birthday in May, and is still one of the hardest working men in Hollywood.

Known for his slim physique and honed body during his '70s heyday, Clint is still in good shape and is apparently happy to share his secrets with Harry.

“Clint spoke to Harry about his future in Tinseltown. They discussed movie projects and then got on to the subject of achieving an action hero’s physique.

“Clint had plenty to say on what Harry should do if he ever wanted to be considered leading man material," a source revealed to British newspaper Daily Star.

Top of Clint's tips was reportedly Krav Maga, a self-defence system developed for the military in Israel. It consists of a wide combination of techniques sourced from boxing, savate, Muay Thai, Wing Chun, Judo, Jujutsu, wrestling, and grappling, along with realistic fight training.

And Harry's not the only One Directioner to get on board with the exhausting fitness plan, bandmates Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson are also said to be fans.

“Louis and Liam are also raving about KM now. They’ve even been having a body competition – comparing their biceps over Instagram!" the source added.

Liam has been teasing fans with his buffed up body recently, and sent his Instagram followers into a frenzy last month when he posted a near naked picture of himself.

The photo shows the 20-year-old star standing on the back of a boat, showing off his washboard abs with his nether regions cleverly pixelated to hide his modesty.
