It's been said you haven't made it in Hollywood until the gay rumors start -- and boy bands are, of course, no exception.

Those rumors can, however, get problematic -- as One Direction members Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles reveal in a new interview.

"This is a subject that was funny at first, but now is actually hard to deal with in a relationship," Tomlinson, 21, who is currently dating model Eleanor Calder, revealed to the Tumblr blog Storyboard.

Reports of a so-called "bromance" between the One Direction members have been rampant in the blogosphere for some time, with a number of media outlets even nicknaming the pair "Larry Stylinson," a point which Tomlinson acknowledges in the interview.

"Me and Harry are best friends, people look into our every move -- it is actually affecting the way me and Harry are in public," he is quoted as saying. "We want to joke around, but there seems to be a different rumor every time we do anything. I act the same way with Harry as I do [with] any of the other boys and my childhood friend Stan."

Louis and Harry needn't fret too much -- they're in good company. For a look at other celebrities who've faced rumors about their sexuality, take a look at the slideshow below:
