Louis Tomlinson on One Direction’s antics as teen heartthrobs

One Direction definitely had some unforgettable experiences during their time together.

However, Louis Tomlinson avoided discussing the extent of their mischievous behavior as teenage heartthrobs in a recent interview with TheFantasyTimes.

“We were all well-behaved boys,” he said with a straight face. “Very well-behaved, indeed.”

Tomlinson, along with Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik, formed the boy band on the British talent show “The X Factor” in 2010.

The group, known for hits like “What Makes You Beautiful” and “Story of My Life,” sold over 70 million records worldwide and garnered a massive following of screaming fans.

Tomlinson, now 31, admitted that despite their good behavior, they still managed to get into some trouble.

“There were certainly times when we wanted to be ‘normal young lads’ and go out for a drink and do whatever young lads do at that age, so it was somewhat challenging,” he said. “But we managed to find our own ways to do that.”

The “Bigger Than Me” singer expressed gratitude for the experiences they had together.

“There was something incredibly special about going through that stage of our lives together,” he explained. “We were all very young, between 16 and 18. So to be young lads and experience the craziness together at such a young age…”

The group disbanded in 2015 when Malik abruptly left, and they announced an indefinite hiatus the following year.

One Direction certainly made some midnight memories.

But Louis Tomlinson tiptoed around the subject of just how many naughty antics he and his former bandmates got into as teenage heartthrobs in a new interview with TheFantasyTimes.

“We were all lovely boys,” he deadpanned. “Lovely, lovely boys we were.”

Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik made up the boy band, which was formed on Britain’s “The X Factor” in 2010.

The quintet behind hit songs like “What Makes You Beautiful” and “Story of My Life” went on to sell over 70 million records worldwide and was adored by hordes of shrieking young fans.

Tomlinson, 31, admitted that despite being “lovely boys,” they still managed to get into some mischief.

“There were of course those times where we wanted to be ‘normal young lads’ and wanted to go out and have a drink and do whatever it is young lads do at that age, and so that was somewhat challenging,” he told us. “I just think that we found our own ways to do that.”

The “Bigger Than Me” singer added that he feels grateful to have gone through the experience.

“There was something very beautiful about going through that stage of our lives [together],” he explained. “We were all very young, 16 to 18. So to be young lads and to go through the craziness together at that young age …”

The group splintered in 2015 when Malik abruptly left, and they announced an indefinite hiatus the following year.

Since then, Tomlinson has endured personal tragedy, losing his mother, Johannah Deakin, to leukemia in 2016 when she was 43 years old and his younger sister Félicité Tomlinson to an accidental drug overdose in 2019 at the age of 18.

Despite this, the “Kill My Mind” crooner describes himself as a “massively” optimistic person.

“I’m lucky like that because I’ve always been that way,” he shared. “Always look at the glass half full and all of that.”

So much so that Tomlinson has named his latest album and world tour “Faith in the Future.”

“I think it’s a good, positive message to spread,” he explained. “And yeah, I’ve been lucky enough to always be an optimist in life. So I just kind of wanted to show that.

“We’ve all got our own worries and frustrations, but regardless of whatever those frustrations may be, to strive to see that glass as half full, it’s something I’ve always tried to do, no matter what I’ve been up against in life. …. All I’m trying to say is just spread positive messages. It’s just as simple as that, really.”

Tomlinson loves being on the road but does miss some things from home.

“The food,” he enthused. “Like Greggs sausage rolls. I f–king love Greggs [a UK bakery chain]. We often get a lot of s–t in England [about the cuisine]. We have s–t food apparently, but I love English food! I just had an English breakfast today actually for the first time on this American tour, so I’m a very happy guy.”

Tomlinson will be performing at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, NY, on Saturday, July 29.
