Harry Styles Can’t Get Past ‘Late Late Show’ Security for His Residency (Video)

Perhaps if he had brought all of One Direction…

There’s no need for Harry Styles to carry a driver’s license — extended eye contact and a dusting of ’70s porno music seems to work on the ladies.

The pop star almost didn’t make it in time for the Monday debut of his week-long “Late Late Show” residency, thanks to one overbearing security guard who questioned the young man’s identity. After all, if he’s Harry Styles, where are Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson?

“I don’t always travel with One Direction,” Styles told the guard in the skit, which you can watch above. “I’m doing, like, a solo thing.”

“Oh, you’re doing the solo thing?” she replied. “How did that work out for Justin Timberlake?”

“Really well, actually,” he explained.

Cue the deep bass and the romantic stare — that got him in. Unfortunately, the same desperate method didn’t work out so well for CBS host James Corden, who left his wallet elsewhere.
