We’ve heard who straight guys would go gay for, and it’s pretty much what you’d expect, but what about the ambiguously straight pop nuggets of the world? Surely they must have man crushes of their own.

The man-boys of One Direction have put our curiosity to rest by dishing on their same-sex admirations. Here’s what they had to say:


Zayn Malik — Jake Gyllenhaal 

“I wouldn’t necessarily say I have a crush on him, but I really appreciate Jake Gyllenhaal’s acting. I’ve seen him in a film called Prisoners. He’s so sick.”

Louis Tomlinson — David Beckham and Russel Brand

“David Beckham is just a cool, cool guy but I saw Russell Brand on Jonathan Ross and he just speaks so incredibly. I look up to him, he’s cool.”


Niall Horan — Johnny Depp

“Johnny Depp is pretty sick and he’s a really nice fella too.”

Zayn also had this message for their gay fans:

“Just be yourself. If that’s who you are, that’s who you are and don’t be afraid to be the person that you are.”

There you have it. Jake Gyllenhaal is sick. Jonny Depp is sick (and nice). And David Beckham and Russell Brand are cool. All the news that’s fit to print.
