After months of girls (literally) falling at his feet, One Direction heart-throb Harry Styles will be reeling with the shock of rejection after one American beauty laughed off his request for a date.
Harry spotted TV star Jillian Harris, who is 14 years his senior, in a Los Angeles restaurant and wasted no time strolling over and asking for her phone number.
But the 32-year-old laughed off his request, saying: "I am way too old for you."
Unlike Harry's ex Caroline Flack, also 32, Jillian said she could never date anyone as young as 18-year-old Harry.
Jillian, who rose to fame in the US by appearing on hit reality show The Bachelor, explained to The Mirror: "He asked for my phone number. He looked cute and adorable. But he was also very young looking. I am sorry but I could never date an 18-year-old. I don't think that's even legal in the US, is it?"
Harry recently hooked up with 24-year-old photographer Sarah-Louise Colivet during the band's tour stop in New York.
