Look at all those girls to choose from! Harry Styles and One Direction mobbed by fans… as Katherine Schwarzenegger dubs him 'a cutie'
One Direction heart-throb Harry Styles has only been single a few days after ending his fling with TV presenter Caroline Flack.
But given his very warm reception in Los Angeles, it looks like there's no shortage of eager young women waiting to take her place.
And despite One Direction not being well-known in the States, it appears the X Factor boy band – and Styles in particular – has attracted the eye of one famous California girl – Arnold Schwarzenegger's daughter Katherine.

The 22-year-old admitted she had just watched one of One Direction's two videos and was impressed with curly-haired Styles' looks.
She tweeted: 'Just watched my first One Direction video with my cousin and @Harry_Styles is a cutie indeed!'
Although Styles is yet to reply to Schwarzenegger's compliment, he has been commenting on the weather and fans.

He wrote on his Twitter yesterday morning: 'Just woke up thanks to a lovely crowd outside. Sunny day! Missing everyone back in the UK… 🙂 .x
Meanwhile, his bandmate Louis Tomlinson, 20, was spotted working on his tan by the hotel's pool.
Since arriving in California on Saturday for a video shoot, One Direction have caused quite a stir.
They were met by screaming girls at LAX airport and then hundreds have been camped outside the W Hotel in the LA suburb of Westwood since.

Even though the group have only had two
singles released in the UK – What Makes You Beautiful and Gotta Be You,
it looks like they're already intent on launching themselves in the US.
While the X Factor catapulted them to fame just over a year ago, they'll have to work a bit harder to make a name for themselves in the notoriously hard-to-crack American market.
But it looks like they may be off to a good start given the large group of girls outside their hotel.

Styles and his bandmates' trip Stateside comes two days after it was revealed the 17-year-old had split up from Xtra Factor co-host Flack, 32, after a few months of dating.
On Friday, he tweeted: 'Please know I didn't 'dump' Caroline. This was a mutual decision. She is one of the kindest, sweetest people I know. Please respect that.'
And a few hours later, Flack wrote on her Twitter: 'Lots of really sweet messages today.. Thanks guys! Big hug with my new gloves :).'
