Harry Styles Used to Live in Attic for Nearly 2 Years

The 'Sign of the Times' hitmaker lived in producer Ben Winston's attic and became an inspiration for sitcom 'Happy Together'.

AceShowbiz - Before Harry Styles owns and lives in a mansion, he used to be a house guest in upcoming sitcom "Happy Together" executive producer Ben Winston's London home. Variety's TV features editor Danielle Turchiano revealed on Twitter that the "Sign of the Times" hitmaker lived in Ben's attic for almost 2 years and neighbors didn't know he was there.

"Harry Styles lived in Ben Winston's attic for 18 months, suburban neighborhood, no one knew he was there," the editor wrote on her account. Ben didn't mind with Harry staying in his attic as the singer turned out to be an inspiration to him to develop the sitcom. "He said living in a quiet 'boring' family environment while undergoing a crazy time in his life helped him and inspired Winston to develop #HappyTogether #TCA18," Danielle added.

The reason why the One Direction member stayed in the attic was because the house he wanted to buy in Hampstead Heath wasn't ready to be moved into at that time. Harry planned to stay for just a few weeks at first, but it turned out to be 18 months. According to Danielle, the British singer had another reason why he spent so much time living in the attic.

"Winston says, Styles wanted to stay in his house for so long because he preferred living in a family unit instead of alone in a mansion," Danielle tweeted. "He thinks everyone can relate to that. He and I have never met or he probably would not have said that. #HappyTogether #TCA18."

Ben told Rolling Stones in 2017 about his experience living with the pop star. "Two weeks later and he hadn't bought his house yet," Ben said about Harry's house in Hampstead Heath area. "It wasn't going through. Then he said, 'I'm going to stay until Christmas, if you don't mind.' "

"That period of time, he was living with us in the most mundane suburban situation. No one ever found out, really. Even when we went out for a meal, it's such a sweet family neighborhood, no one dreamed it was actually him," the British film producer recalled. "But he made our house a home. And when he moved out, we were gutted."
