Check out part one below, and stay tuned for part two, coming soon!

Number Fifteen: They Were Nervous About Making This Is Us. Their movie, This Is Us, made some of the members quite nervous. Harry Styles said, “When you put yourself out there – anything like that – if it’s a song – you want people to like it. It makes you feel vulnerable, I think, when you put yourself out there that much, so it was exciting.”

Number Fourteen: They Don’t Really Prank Each Other. It’s not news that the members of One Direction can pull some serious pranks, but they don’t actually prank each other very often. They only really prank the people that work with them, and they enjoy stealing things.

Number Thirteen: They Have Some Weird Dating Dealbreakers. According to Niall, his dating dealbreaker is “a ridiculous laugh.” Harry has said that, for him, “I think a first date is just, be early. Give like a 15-minute window. Don’t be late. And if a girl ever spits…you know when you’re going down the street and you see someone spit and you’re like, ‘That’s gross.”

Number Twelve: They Like to Be Normal. Niall has said that he enjoys going to soccer matches because it is something he used to do before he was famous. He also said that he enjoys attending other concerts.

Number Eleven: Liam Gets His Mantra From His Mom. Liam’s mantra, which he got from his mom, is “Just do your best that’s the best you can do.” Liam fully believes it 100 percent.

Number Ten: They Are Still Surprised by Their Fans’ Behavior. Though it’s no secret that 1D fans can pull some crazy stunts, some things that fans do still surprise them. They are especially surprised when fans do things like jump on them in public.
