Harry Styles has revealed that he doesn't eat meat - and one vegan organization has praised the star.

The former One Direction singer made the comments earlier this year during an interview with NPR Music’s Stephen Thompson.

'I don't eat meat'

Speaking about a trip to his favorite NFL team, the Green Bay Packers, Styles revealed he had once visited its home stadium. The arena's trademark offering is 'horse collars' - large, curved sausages. Thompson asked if Styles had indulged in one.

"I don't eat meat, so no horse collar for me," said Styles, who said there wasn't a veggie alternative available, which he said was a 'shame', adding: "But it’s probably coming."

Styles is not vegan - as he admitted that he still enjoys eating cheese.

'A great start'

Vegan charity Veganuary - a global organization, which encourages people to sign a pledge to try a vegan diet in January and beyond - made an Instagram post praising the star for his meat-free ways today.

The organization said: "In a recent interview with NPR Music, Harry Styles revealed that he doesn't eat meat anymore!⁠
