Zayn Malik has admitted he chickened out of meeting Johnny Depp because he was scared he would “embarrass” himself.
The singer had the chance to meet Johnny when the Hollywood heavyweight invited One Direction to his studio while they were in America, but Zayn told The Sun that he’s such a big fan of the actor that he froze.
“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.”
Johnny apparently invited the boy band to a recording studio inside his LA home because his 13-year-old daughter Lily Rose is such a big fan and was keen to meet them. There were reports that the Pirates Of The Caribbean star joined the group for a “little jam session” and let them play some of his own instruments.
Zayn confessed he now regrets missing out.
He said: “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.”
