Liam Payne has admitted he ‘doesn’t know’ what he would say to Harry Styles anymore.
It’s been over four years since One Direction split, and sadly the bandmates haven’t remained the best of friends.
During an interview with The Face magazine, Liam was asked which of the group members he’d like to walk down Old Kent Road.
The Strip That Down singer said: “To be honest with you, more than anyone, probably Harry.”
“I speak to Louis [Tomlinson] quite regularly. And I feel like I know where I stand with Niall [Horan]. But with Harry there’s so much mystery around who he’s become.”
“I was looking at some pictures of him the other day, and I just thought: ‘I don’t know what more I’d say to him other than, ‘Hello’ and ‘How are you?'”
“I mean, look at the stuff I put out and the stuff Harry puts out. Polar opposite. I’m like the anti-christ version of what Harry is.”
Liam was also asked what he thinks about Harry’s unique style, which has evolved since their 1D days.
He replied: “Do you know what? For me, it’s a case of fair play to him for doing what he f***ing wants.”
“If he wants to wear one earring and go to the Met Gala wearing something unexpected, what of it? Fair f***ing play. I couldn’t put myself in that. I’d look f***ing…It’d look weird.”
This isn’t the first time Liam has revealed the distance between him and Harry.
During a recent interview with Esquire, Liam tried to explain why he and Harry never remained close friends.
He said: “One Direction was my office. So, if you change everything, just put desks in, in an office environment, some people talk, some people don’t talk, there’s something about someone you absolutely hate, that’s literally the way an office works.”
“By the time we got to the end of One Direction, it was like the office ended and that was the end of it. You didn’t come back in. So, I spoke to Louis more than I spoke to anyone, me and Niall saw eye to eye on some things and not others.”
“Then with Harry I just didn’t know anything about him. And that’s not his fault or my fault, it’s just the way that that laid out, when you’ve been put in that room together and then exposed to this whizz-bang of fame.”
Liam then clarified: “I mean, we spoke, me and Harry caught a laugh every so often. It wasn’t like we never spoke, that we just saw him around, but it was not like I’d see him on the weekend, that we’d go out or anything together. Because we just don’t have anything in common.”
“I don’t have nothing against the boy, I think he’s a beautiful, beautiful person, he’s a very lovely person, and you can see that by how many people he meets that get along with him, the general thing you hear coming back is true.”
“And I can say that from my own experience with him but I just haven’t spoken to him for a number of years because our music–I’m like the antichrist version, to his christness.”
