One Direction's Niall Horan and Hungarian model/actress Barbara Palvin went out on a movie date in London on Nov. 30, 2013. According to a Daily Mirror report, the couple saw "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" at Everyman cinema in North London's Belsize Park and tried to keep a low profile during their date.
The Daily Mirror reports: "Onlookers said the pair, both 20, were very relaxed in each other’s company and seemed to have a good time together watching the 'Hunger Games' sequel 'Catching Fire."
A source told the Daily Mirror: "Barbara came in first and was playing on her phone until Niall arrived. He had a security guard with him, and they sat in the front row so nobody could turn around to see them. He kept a baseball cap on and pulled it low, to try to avoid being seen. They clearly wanted to keep a low profile. They were laughing and joking together throughout the film, and both were dressed casually. You could tell they were comfortable in each other’s company."
According to the Daily Mirror, Palvin met Horan "a few months back and the pair started following each other on Twitter earlier this year."
Palvin is has worked for Victoria's Secret, Armani Exchange, H&M, Victoria's Secret, and Pull and Bear, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Nina Ricci and many other fashion houses and designers. In February 2012, she became an ambassador for L'Oreal Paris. She made her film debut as an actress in the 2014 film "Hercules: The Thracian Wars."
Horan, who describes himself as "single and available," when he is asked about his love life in interviews, was rumored to have hooked up with "X Factor" U.K. contestant Tamera Foster, who came in fifth place on the show in 2013. Horan also reportedly had a fling with singer Ellie Goulding in August 2013. In July 2013, Horan reportedly dumped model Zoe Whelan, whom he had "secretly" dated for about four or five months.
Horan is the only one in the group who has refused to publicly name anyone he has dated since One Direction became famous. He has said in numerous interviews that he is too busy with his career to settle down in a serious relationship. However, he has admitted in many interviews that he's had a longtime crush on singer/actress/"X Factor" U.S. judge Demi Lovato, who also told the media in that she has a crush on Horan. Despite these affectionate feelings for each other, Lovato and Horan have repeatedly said that they are "just friends" when they are asked in interviews about their relationship.
In May 2013, Horan was caught in a mini-scandal when it was alleged that "Made in Chelsea" co-star Louise Thompson cheated on her boyfriend Andy Jordan by having a fling with Horan. In an interview with New! magazine issue (dated July 1, 2013) that went on sale on June 24, 2013, Jordan (who is 23) confirmed that he has banned Thompson (who is 22) from being alone with Horan, but Jordan would not directly comment on Thompson's alleged infidelity.
In 2012, Horan was romantically linked to drama student Amy Green. He and Green have not publicly commented on their relationship.
