NEW YORK -- One Direction did their level best to answer all the questions thrown at them during a recent press conference. The boy band was promoting their new movie, This Is Us, which opened Friday.
In answer to your question, 'Are they utterly adorable?' the answer is 'Yes!'
Q: IS IT TRUE YOU ARE BIG PRANKSTERS?
Niall: "We don't prank each other -- we prank everyone around us, though, our team. We like stealing stuff like golf carts, fork lifts."
Harry: "You put us on the spot. If we say a prank, and no one laughs ... We pranked our musicians. I think it was in Madrid. We taped up their door so they couldn't get into their dressing room. See? Nobody's laughing."
Q: WHEN'S THE FIRST TIME YOU REALIZED YOU MIGHT GET FAMOUS?
Harry: "I remember the first time I was recognized. I was on my way to the X Factor house and I stopped at a petrol station. A girl asked me if she could take my picture."
Niall: "First time I knew it was a little different than before was when we were on the Big Time Rush tour, and we left Radio City Music Hall, and there were hundreds of girls running after our car and banging on the windows and stuff. I thought, 'I don't think I've seen this before.'"
Q: EVER GET ANY GOOD CAREER ADVICE?
Liam: "My mom said just do your best, that's all you can do, and I do believe that."
Zayn: "Somebody actually did say something that is wise, they said, 'The key to being successful in this job is to stop searching for anonymity and start searching for simplicity.'"
Q: WHAT ARE SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUR CAREER SO FAR?
Niall: "The UK premiere on Leicester Square was ridiculous. When we were on X-Factor, we went to a few premieres on the square. We were at a Harry Potter premiere, the biggest thing in the last few years. Then we had our own premiere this week, and for us it was just amazing. There were 6,000 people on the square, and people watching all over the place. it was amazing."
Q: EVERYTHING ABOUT THE BAND IS SO POSITIVE!
Harry: "All except my drugs tests. They're all negative."
Q: ZAYNE, WHY DON'T WE SEE YOUR FIANCE IN THE MOVIE? WHERE IS SHE?
Zayne: "I see her a lot. And that's something private between us, um, we did just get engaged and I'm very happy. And that's about all I have to say about it.."
Louis: "That's not actually really true, about them (girlfriends) being edited out. When we had free time, when we were at home, we didn't always have the cameras on us."
Q: HOW WILL ZAYNE PICK A BEST MAN WHEN HE HAS FOUR BEST FRIENDS?
Zayne: "We've decided it's going to be a fight to the death."
Louis: "Or rock, paper, scissors."
Zayne: "They'll fight until there's nobody left."
Q: WHAT DO YOU DO ON YOUR OWN TIME?
Harry: " Every time I go home, I just watch TV with my family and fall asleep on the sofa. It's just nice to fall asleep and know you don't have an alarm set."
Niall: "I like going to soccer matches. That's what I used to do before all of this happened. And I like going to watch other people's gigs. Like, last night we went to see John Mayer."
Q; DO YOUR FANS EVER DO THINGS THAT SCARE YOU?
Liam: "I was a bit surprised once when I was sitting down having dinner, and a girl was suddenly right there, crying and shaking over my shoulder. The only time you get scared is in a big crowd and you see some little girl getting squashed at the front. That's the scary part, more for their sake."
