5 Things You Didn’t Know About One Direction

With Zayn Malik happily engaged to Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards, hit summer singles to their credit, and a new documentary set for release on August 30 (One Direction: This is Us), it seems that it’s a good year to be One Direction. We decided to take a closer look at the boys- here’s a list of five things you didn’t know about the famous five:

1)  Zayn Malik loves comic books: The 20-year-old 1D heartthrob, known for being the dark and brooding member of the boy band, has a total of eight tattoos- including an image of his fiancée done in cartoon style thanks to his love of comics.

2) Harry Styles originally wanted to be a physiotherapist: Although it’s hard to picture the curly-haired 19-year-old doing anything else besides singing Little Things and performing on stage, Harry had ambitions of being a physiotherapist before making a career in music.

3) Louis Tomlinson has five sisters: The fun-loving 21-year-old has five younger half sisters, and is therefore used to being surrounded by women.

4) Liam Payne dislikes using spoons: The 19-year-old (who has been described as the most mature member of the group) has said that he dislikes using spoons!

5) Niall Horan doesn’t believe in sex before marriage: The Irish lad has publicly stated that he doesn’t believe in sex before marriage and is waiting for the right woman to come along first.
