We'll take any excuse to intently stare at Harry Styles' mug!
The Sign of the Times singer stopped by The Graham Norton Show on Friday and played a game that didn't seem very fun… for him, at least.
The former One Direction star had to listen to a series of rumors that have been floating around about him over the years and, using only his facial expressions, confirm or deny each one!
Harry didn't speak out on every rumor, but his face did give away clues as to whether or not he auditioned to play the young Han Solo, had a sexual tryst with Barack Obama, or caught an STD from a koala. (He only denied one of those three, BTW.)
Watch the late night lie detector test (below) to find out all of Harry's secrets!
But while the fans are mourning, the filmmakers have been scrambling.
Carrie's part in The Last Jedi (above) was already completed at the time of her death, and spoiler alert — her character was meant to have a large part in the next installment as well.
Much ado was made of the possibility that
Princess General Leia would live on digitally, thanks to the use of posthumous character recreation in Rogue One and to comments from those close to the project.
But now we have definitive word from the very top. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy herself says Leia will not return in the Episode IX.
Writer-director Colin Trevorrow and co-writer Derek Connelly, along with the rest of the Lucasfilm braintrust, had to work hard to figure out how to continue the saga without one of its leaders. Kennedy told EW they threw out the story they had and "pretty much started over." No old footage will be used. No digital recreation. Leia will not be part of Episode IX.
But now at last, Kennedy says, they've found a way to explain her absence, though of course, we'll have to wait until we see how Episode VIII ends before they can share any part of it with the fans.
Are YOU happy they're letting Leia go??

On Friday, Disney and Lucasfilm finally dropped the first look at the latest chapter of George Lucas' epic space adventure — and, by Luke, are we awakened!
The quick clips don't show any Carrie Fisher, but we do catch a glimpse of Daisy Ridley undergoing some intense Jedi training and Mark Hamill delivering some very somber news as Luke Skywalker.
Not to mention shots of John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, and ACTION, ACTION, ACTION!!!
Ch-ch-check out the teaser (above) and take a look at the official poster for The Last Jedi (below) — in theaters December 15!
Get ready to weep like a baby.
On Thursday, fans were given quite a treat at the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando as a touching Carrie Fisher tribute video was played. As you surely know, the celebrated actress passed away back in December due to a cardiac arrest. Such a sad loss.
In addition to this video, Carrie's daughter Billie Lourd paid tribute to her mother by wearing her momma's iconic white Princess Leia gown. Miz Fisher may be gone, but clearly she hasn't been forgotten.
Be sure to watch the poignant tribute video for yourself (above)!
What a treat!
The 24-year-old received a standing ovation as she stood there in a dress specifically made in collaboration with Tom Ford to pay homage to Carrie's iconic white Princess Leia gown.
So awesome! Loves it!
Addressing the large crowd, Billie said:
"My mom used to say she never knew where Princess Leia ended and Carrie Fisher began. She went from being an unknown actress, the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, to Princess Leia…My mom, like Leia, was never afraid to speak her mind…She loved you. She loved these movies. And she loved this force called Leia. In our world, Star Wars became a religion and a way of life. I wanted to be here with you because I know you feel the same way."
We're totally getting teary-eyed here!
The actress also spoke of the important lessons imparted to her by her mother, saying:
