Harry Styles has said he and his One Direction bandmates are still growing up.
The 20-year-old heartthrob claims that despite being in the world's most popular boy band, he, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne are still learning how to be men and get self-conscious on occasion.
He said: "I think that people imagine that if you're in a band you kind of lose all normal things. But we still have every insecurity every 19 or 20-year-old guy has."
But despite claiming he sometimes struggles with a lack of confidence, Harry decided to stay in Los Angeles for an extra day earlier this week to go partying after One Direction took home three gongs at the American Music Awards.
Quizzed on why Harry and Zayn, 21, had arrived in Australia a day later than himself, Louis, 22, and Liam, 21, Niall, 20, said: "What happened there was, we'd just won three American Music Awards, and some people wanted to get straight to Australia and Harry here wanted to have a little party in Los Angeles."
While Harry agreed with his pal, he added that he had an ear ache which he didn't want to aggravate by flying too soon.
He told Australia's Kiis FM: "I also didn't feel very well so I didn't want to fly. I wanted to wait out the storm to fly. My ear hurts."
