Robbie Williams: "I Feel Sorry For One Direction's Harry Styles"

15 September 2012, 08:40

The Take That star admits it must be hard for the teen star to find any privacy in a world full of camera phones.

Robbie Williams has confessed that he sympathises with One Direction star Harry Styles because he has no privacy on nights out.

The 'Rock DJ' star told The Sun that he feels slightly "bitter" that he is not as young as the 18 year-old star anymore but admitted he has a lot of love for the teen singer and his band.

"It's only natural a lad in a boyband will be compared to me at some point," he revealed. "Everybody is a ladies' man or a man's man, whatever your persuasion might be. He's just having a nice time."

He continued: "I see Harry through bitter-getting-old-and-married-and-can't-do-all-of-that-any-more eyes.

"Also, I've got a lot of love for him and One Direction. On the pie chart, the love outweighs the bitterness — but the bitterness is in there too."

The 38 year-old singer is currently expecting his first child with wife Ayda and looked back upon some of his early days in Take That as he admitted Harry doesn't have the same privacy which he did back in the 90s. 

"I feel a bit for Harry," he confessed. "At his age I was in this lilywhite boyband, Take That. But I was meeting up with mates, jumping out of the tour bus and into a Transit van at motorway service stations all around the country.

"No one had a camera phone so I could go and enjoy myself properly. Harry is finding out it's not so easy for him."

Robbie recently told Capital that he would love to help out on the new series of the X Factor in any way and said he had great fun working with One Direction when he was on series in 2010.

Meanwhile, Harry was recently spotted out in London test driving an array of sports cars whilst his band mate Niall has been hanging out with Justin Bieber during the Canadian's visit of the UK.
