Yep, it looks like we have a real British invasion here (but it’s one that we don’t mind having, of course, LOL!). Model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley graces the new cover of Glamour Magazine this month, where she hangs out with the members of one of the biggest boy bands on the moment, One Direction. Here’s a highlight of their joint interview from inside the mag:
ON WHY THEY’RE NOT THE TYPICAL BOY BAND AND WHY THEY DON’T DANCE:
GLAMOUR: So tell us—what makes One Direction different from other boy bands?
ZAYN: We didn’t want to just follow the boy-band formula. We didn’t want to do any dancing. We just wanted to be five dudes in a band.
LIAM: We just kind of came out and said, “We can’t dance. We’re a bit lazy. We’re just normal lads.”
GLAMOUR: Is it that you can’t dance, or you won’t dance?
LIAM: A bit of both, actually. We look stupid dancing. That’s what I think.
GLAMOUR: You also didn’t try to present yourselves as perfect.
LIAM: I don’t think we’ve ever tried to be squeaky-clean. Nobody’s perfect.
HARRY: The thing is, when you’re playing a part, eventually it goes wrong. Eventually someone’s going to see that that’s not who you are. So it’s best to be yourself from the get-go.
ON THEIR RABID FAN BASE:
GLAMOUR: Your fans seriously—no, completely—lose it when you guys go out in public. How do you adjust to that?
LIAM: I don’t think it’s ever something we’ll get fully used to.…We kind of try to stay under the radar and not tweet where we are. Yesterday me and Niall went out shopping in Amsterdam. And literally every single shop we went into, they had to close the shop because there were so many people outside. Some girl tried to pull my hair out. It’s quite mad.
ZAYN: I don’t make CIA plans to organize myself. I just go out.
GLAMOUR: Have you ever actually feared for your safety?
ZAYN: Never. I’m not too worried about 12-year-olds jumping on me. But when it comes to their safety, running in front of cars and stuff, it does get scary.
