One Direction's Zayn Malik was 'too nervous' to meet Johnny Depp

Most Popular

When a photo of One Direction getting cosy with none other then Johnny Depp popped up recently, we had a few instant reactions.

First, we screamed in delight at the whole 'famous people meeting other famous people' thing - then seconds later turned to each other and shouted 'WHERE THE HELL IS ZAYN AND HIS QUIFFY QUIFFERSON'?

Well, now that question has been answered - because it turns out that although the Bradford Bad Boi is happy to schedule fisty fights with The Wanted on twitter, when it comes to Hollywood A-listers his knees start a'trembling like a bowl full of jelly.

Yep, Zayn has admitted that he passed up on the chance to meet Johnny with the rest of his bandmates because he was 'too nervous'.

Sheesh Z-Dawg, it's not like he was going to stuff you into a pirate suit and start hacking at your quiff while giggling and chanting 'I'm Edward Scissorhands, Eddy Eddy Scissorhands'. We hope.

It turns out that Zayn didn't snub Depp over fears for his hair though, but because he's such a massive fan of the actor. Awww.

"I was too nervous to go," he said. "I am a massive, massive fan and I didn't want to embarrass myself so I let the boys go without me.

"Hopefully, there will be a next time. The boys said he was totally cool. I kind of regret it for sure and the lads said I was a scaredy cat."

We'd be interested to know what exactly Zayn thought he might do to 'embarrass' himself. Scream in girlish delight? Collapse to the floor in a sobbing heap? Insist on stroking Johnny's face for the entirety of his visit?

Zayn added: "Some of our fans get so excited or nervous when they meet us and that's how I was at the thought of being with Johnny. But instead of lapping it up and enjoying it, I ran the other way."

OH ZAYNY. Anyone else just want to give him a mahoosive hug (and also call him a scaredy cat?)
