One Direction more confident with fame
One Direction say they have grown more confident around people since becoming famous
One Direction have developed people skills since becoming famous pop stars.
The 'Little Things' hitmakers - consisting of Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson - are currently the biggest boy band in the world and they think their confidence has soared since they took part in 'The X Factor' in 2010.
Liam, 20 said: "I think for me - and for you, Zayn - we weren't that confident and because you have to talk to so many people it gives you so many more people skills. When I used to go to family parties as a kid I couldn't hold a conversation. Even with my own uncle. So it's nice that I've now got those skills."
Zayn, 21, added: "It's really built our confidence and our social skills. We do find it a bit easier to carry ourselves and speak to people - it's cool."
However, Niall and Harry, both 20, have joked that it's all "downhill" for them now because they've reached their twenties and have started coming into their own.
Niall said: "Like getting on stage - last year alone we did over 100 shows. So that helps with confidence. But I think we've all become our own people now because we're at that age where we're all turning 20 and we are who we are now, I guess."
Harry added to We Love Pop magazine: "We're over the hill, he's trying to say. It's all downhill from here!"
