“We absolutely hated each other” Liam Payne talks about Louis Tomlinson

While reminiscing about the good old 1D days in a 9-minute YouTube video, Liam Payne revealed exciting details about what happened at shoots and his relationship with Louis Tomlinson during those days. 

He revealed that Louis Tomlinson would try to break something on the set of every shoot. Was it a superstitious thing or just typical teenage boy behavior?

Liam Payne said:

“The thing about Louis was he used to actively try every time to break something in every single music video or thing that we were doing. For me, it was the constant job of trying to talk to the camera or whatever was going on but also watch what the hell this guy over here was going to do next. He was just going to do something crazy.”

This reveal does provide some context to what Liam Payne had said back in 2019 about him and Louis Tomlinson hating each other during their time in the band.

In a talk with Hits RadioLiam Payne confessed 

“When we were in the band, it kind of felt like, because he was the oldest and because I’d been singing for quite a bit of time we both got put in a weird position because he was wanting to be the leader, and I was doing my thing and wanted to. So, at first, we didn’t get on at all. We absolutely hated each other, it was so funny. Really bad. We hid it well. It was crazy.”

Liam continued to say that at first, they didn’t get along at all. They hated each other, it was so funny and really bad. They hid it well. It was crazy.

But to everyone’s satisfaction, all that has changed. He said that now, he speaks a lot to Louis Tomlinson because he thinks that he’s been through so much and they’ve been through so much together as well. 

Once during an interview talking about the band. Louis Tomlinson said:

‘Niall is lovely, Zayn has the voice, Harry is cool, Liam gets the crowd going… then there’s me’

Talking about his band on the sets he said:

“When we didn’t want to go somewhere we’d have a code word and we’d all fall to the floor and lie there until everybody went away”

While reminiscing, Liam Payne also shared that his favorite music video of the band is the one for ‘The Best Song Ever’ in which Liam was a flamboyant dance instructor and Zayn was a woman. It is hilarious.
