The 'Midnight Memories' star is said to have formed a close bond with the popular actor.

One Direction star Harry Styles and Hollywood actor Johnny Depp have reportedly struck up a close friendship over the past year.

The 'Best Song Ever' star first became friends with Pirates Of The Caribbean actor Johnny last year after the band performed a private gig at his house, and fresh claims suggest they have gone on to become "good mates" who help each other with the pressures of fame.

"Harry and Johnny have become good mates lately," a source close to the boy band star told the Daily Star. "Johnny has been on call to give Harry advice and if he can, help him cope with the pressures of being a superstar.
