Does ‘The Idea of You’ come from Harry Styles fan fiction?

There is a lot of talk that the book is based on Harry Styles fan fiction because the main character, Hayes, looks a lot like the former One Direction singer, right down to the tattoos he has.

People says that the author says the book isn’t based on fan fiction, but she did say that Styles inspired the character of Hayes. When she talked to Vogue in December 2020, she said that Hayes was her “dream guy” because he was a mix of “Prince Harry meets Harry Styles” and Eddie Redmayne.

She says, “The Idea of You was never supposed to be a book about Harry Styles. It was supposed to be a story about a woman approaching 40 reclaiming her sexuality and rediscovering herself, just at the point that society usually stops seeing women as desirable, viable, and whole.”
