Emily Ratajkowski Once Shut Down The Idea Of A Harry Styles Romance In Resurfaced Video!
These major moves between Harry Styles and Emily Ratajkowski have apparently been a long time in coming!
Or, maybe we should say they were a long time in NOT coming. Because back in the day, Emily appeared to be very dismissive of the thought of romance with the former One Direction frontman!! Regardless of what’s been going on in Tokyo in recent days, the old EmRata very obviously wasn’t down to give Harry much of a second thought…

Here’s what we mean: back in 2016, the now-31-year-old supermodel sat down with Vanity Fair for a YouTube video. In the two-minute clip, she grabbed a piece of paper and read off a series of Twitter posts from fans, haters, and randos alike.
The tweets are all pretty funny in that “celebs read mean tweets” way which was all the rage in 2016. But now, one of the messages is getting a LOT of attention nearly seven years later!
In one moment near the end of the short clip, the supermodel momma read off a post from one of Styles’ super-fans. The message was short, sweet, and to the point:
“Can Harry and Emily Ratajkowski F**KIN DATE”
Um whoa! Remember, this was 2016. So some 1D loyalist knew what was coming all of seven years ago!?! We should ask them about the Powerball numbers or something… TBH, it was probably just a lucky (years-old) guess. Two hot celebs finally linking up, and all that.
Anyways, EmRata was NOT feeling the love — literally — at the time. In the VF clip, she passed on the set-up offer by saying:
“I don’t know. I’m not sure I believe in fans setting people up. I don’t know if that’s the way to find the best kind of relationships.”
Ch-ch-check it out for yourself in the footage (below), with Styles’ appearance beginning at the 55-second mark:
Ha! If she only knew then what she apparently knows now…
Of course, this old resurfaced video is doubly funny because, as we reported on Sunday, another old video is also making the rounds right now involving Harry and EmRata!! In that second one, which is nearly a full decade old, the former boyband crooner sat down with Mexican network Telehit and boasted about how “Emily Ratajkowski from Gone Girl” was his celebrity crush.
So the Watermelon Sugar singer has always been super into her. And yet the High Low podcast host has, uh, not always been into Harry. Oh well! Things change!

Of course, this setup has been in the works for at least a few weeks now. Late last month, an insider spoke to The Mirror about how the As It Was singer had moved on from recent ex Olivia Wilde with a “mystery” woman:
“Harry is seeing someone. He’s going to great lengths to keep her identity quiet after the circus surrounding his relationship with Olivia. But his close circles all know about the romance. Though it’s early days, things seem to be going well.”
Then, when the Japan makeout sesh footage first surfaced days ago, another insider rushed to The Sun to dish on how Harry and EmRata were forging a connection during his world tour:
“Harry and Emily have been getting to know each other for some time now. They spent some time together out of the public eye this year and are just enjoying each other’s company when they can while Harry is on tour.”
Harry’s Love On Tour set of planet-wide shows would sure seem to be aptly named at this point, right?! What do U make of Ratajkowski’s old Styles denial, Perezcious readers??
Crazy how things sometimes turn out!
