Harry Styles Mistook Griffin For Coat Girl?



One direction star Harry Styles accidentally mistook famous comedienne Kathy Griffin for a cloakroom attendant when they met at a concert.

The American funny woman was sitting next to the pop star at the Eagles concert in Los Angeles in January 2014. She claims the star appeared a little worse for wear.

He apparently didn’t know who Griffin was and was repeatedly mistaking her for a member of staff as he talked to actor Tom Hanks backstage at the event.

Griffin told Britain’s The Sun newspaper:

“I was at an Eagles concert and I was sat next to Harry Styles. I was ruthlessly busting his b**ls and he seemed very, very drunk, and then he went up to Tom Hanks backstage and was making a loveable fool of himself. He said to him, ‘Were you scared on the boat shooting Captain Phillips. Were you scared? It seemed so small’. Tom kept saying to him, ‘Harry, this is Kathy Griffin – she’s a comedian’. He didn’t get it. He wasn’t being a d**che but he kept leaving his coat with me. I was going to steal it but my boyfriend talked me out of it so I didn’t get arrested.”

Kathy is an Emmy and Grammy Award-winning American actress and comedian. She was born in Oak Park, Illinois and moved to Los Angeles in 1978, where she studied drama at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute and became a member of the improvisational comedy troupe The Groundlings.
