Hi guys, i read the RS interview with Hazz and one part of it caught my attention, Harry does in fact look a lot like River Phoenix (Who was an Iconic young actor who sadly died due to overdose at the early age of 23 years)
So, ok let’s just see how alike they really are, I’ll
give facts and make parallels between both of them as we go. I, in no way want to say that Harry is better than Phoenix or the opposite, They’re obviously different people in every aspect of their careers and lifes, don’t take this seriously. AAAAND english is not my first language so be KIND.
obviously i took the info from WikiP bc yeah, easier, but i did my resertch … kind of.
Both have a fixed stare on whoever is in front of them
So… One of the reasons why i made this is bc H is 23 years old, the exact same age as River when he died.
River Phoenix died in
October 31, 1993 coincidently just
three months and two days later (93 days) Harry Styles was welcomed into this
Those eyes and those looks are extremely overwhelming but gentle
Phoenix’ true passion was the music. He was a singer,
songwriter, and an accomplished guitarist, he was determinate to be a musician
that’s why his family moved to LA but Ironically his acting career is what really gave him immortality in Hollywood as
an icon ofthen mentioned his ability to get inside his characters, he was so good that you forgot it was him and it was not real
“He was obviously going to be a movie star," "It’s something apart from acting ability”. The opposite to harry who was recognized since the beginning as a musician and later in his career he
ventured to try acting, described as “remarkable … a kind of panache. It’s a gift.”
The jaw is extremely defined
and the lips and all their bone structure seems quite similar from this angle)
Phoenix’s parents named him after the river of life from the Hermann Hesse novel Siddhartha, and he received his middle name from the Beatles’ song "Hey Jude”. His childhood was sad and hard, He was raised in, a small suburb of Gainesville, where they lived in poverty. They lived in a “desperate situation.” Phoenix often played guitar while he and his sister sang on street corners for money and food to support their ever-growing family he never attended formal school. He could read and write, and he had an appetite for it, but he had no deep roots into any kind of sense of history or literature.
In contrast, Harry was raised in a hard working class kind of family, Styles was born in Worcestershire but was raised in
Holmes Chapel, Cheshire
after his parents moved there along with his older sister, Gemma, when he was a child. He attended Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School His parents divorced when he was seven and his mother later remarried, but his childhood was lived in a cared and quiet environment. As a sixteen-year-old he worked part-time at the W. Mandeville Bakery in Holmes Chapel. As a child, Styles loved singing, citing Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley and The Beatles as his influences.
Even the hair and the way it fits and falls is similar in this photo
Phoenix was a dedicated animal rights, environmental and political activist. He was a prominent spokesperson for PETA and won their Humanitarian Award in 1992 for his fund-raising efforts, He wrote an environmental awareness essay about Earth Day targeted at his young fanbase, which was printed in Seventeen magazine. He was a lifelong vegan.
Parallel to him, Harry supports Comic Relief, a charity that works to tackle poverty and social injustice. And he also grew and donated his own hair to the Little Princess Trust, a UK organization that gives free real hair wigs to young boys and girls who have lost their hair from cancer treatments. And He, just as Phoenix, loves our environment, He supports Greenpeace and has urged concertgoers to boycott the chain of aquatic theme parks SeaWorld, thanks to him young people turned against the idea of animals in captivity by saying “Don’t go to SeaWorld”
If you see the
profile very closely, it’s very similar, I was really confused for a
moment the first time I looked at the photo of River, I thought someone
else had altered it to make it look more like harry
Phoenix’s image—one he bemoaned in interviews—had been squeaky-clean, owing in part to his public dedication to his various social, political, humanitarian, and dietary interests not always popular in the 1980s. As a result, his death elicited a vast amount of coverage from the media. Phoenix’s status as a teen idol and promising young actor, and his subsequent premature death, made him a frequent subject in popular culture media. He was also described by one writer as “the vegan James Dean,” He was also referred to as “This century’s James Dean and comparisons were made regarding the youth and sudden deaths of both actors.
And Harry styles is also recognized as consummated heartthrob, often described as “wide smile and sweet-yet-naughty demeanour” have made him a fan favourite, He is also compared to the legendary actor James Dean by TS(lol) bc he apparently has James Dean’s daydream look in his eyes. And as a side note: He is also More often compared to Mick Jagger (Totally weird, harry is Mick Jagger Reincarnation YES I know Mick Jagger is not DEAD BUT THEY’RE THE SAME PERSON HOLY SHIT, I’ll also going to do one of this with them both)”
(I just… yeah, give me your opinios)
Ironically, despite his reputation for healthy living, was a chain smoker. Harry on the other hand, well… doesn’t smoke, as far as i’m aware.
Quote time: guess which dude said which quote:
I wish sometimes that I wasn’t as conscious as I am.
I don’t think you can define love.
In simplicity there is truth.
We have a choice..To Live or To Exist.
I would never, never do anything unless I believed in it.
I hate the word famous because it has no substance.
SOOOOO, that’s it, the end, i’m having a hard time editing so sorry i made this shit in paint lol, but yeah, i hope you guys can find some more similarities, if you do, feel free to share them with me!
