Zayn Malik Is Protective Over Harry Styles


Zayn Malik revealed to The Sun that he feels extra protective of 18-year-old Harry: ‘He is the baby of the group but people seem to forget that because of the way that he is and that he is so charming. So it is a little bit upsetting sometimes if you see him with the weight of the world on his shoulders. It does annoy us a bit. He’s a young kid and people are just giving him grief for no reason

Zayn told Fabulous: ‘[I’ve smoked] since I was about 15. At the moment I’m probably on about eight or nine cigs a day, which I tell myself isn’t too many. I just don’t want it to affect my health. When I get older, I don’t want to be one of those dads that can’t jog through the park without running out of breath after ten minutes. It’s proving difficult.’

When Colin Farrell told Jonathan Ross his story about quitting it inspired Zayn: ‘He wrote a letter to tobacco about a year and a half ago saying ‘it’s been great, thank you for being there through the good times and the bad, but someone else needs you,’ and then burnt the letter of the cooker and got rod of it. Hopefully I’ll stop too.’

Zayn Malik told The Sun that he was scared of Perrie Edwards’ brother: ‘I went up to meet her Mum and family the other month. I was a bit scared of her brother to be honest, he’s in the Navy. He’s a big bloke. I thought he was going to be a bit defensive of his sister but he was really cool.’

On missing out on important times of his sisters lives: ‘It’s been really hard. Last weekend was the first time in six months that I’d been home. It’s pretty strange because you have images of people in your head when you left, then you just think they’re going to be the same when you come back, like time freezes. I have sisters and from the ages of 11 to 13, it’s a big change for girls.’
