Our tiny half-fish half-human hearts are breaking


In the most devastating news you'll hear all day, Harry Styles has turned down the role of Prince Eric in Disney's live-action remake of The Little Mermaid as first reported by Variety.  

Despite having perfect hair and sparkly, dreamy eyes, the former One Direction member (who was in the running for the role) has decided there are plenty of other fish in the sea who can play the prince that inspires Ariel to seek out an evil sea witch who gives her the ability to walk on land in exchange for her voice. 

That is not a spoiler–this movie came out like 20 years ago.
