'I don't have the body for naked selfies', says 1D's Niall

Many celebrities share near-naked selfies with their legions of Twitter fans nowadays, but it's a trend One Direction's Niall Horan will be steering well clear of.

The pop super star claims he simply doesn't have the physique for such provocative snaps and finds them a touch embarrassing.

"Oh no, that is cringe, and I definitely don't have the body for nude selfies anyways," he said.

However, the youthful looking Mullingar man does believe he will age the best out of all his bandmates.

"I reckon I'll look the youngest for a long time, I look 12 now," he laughed.

"I'll be trying to hold onto my youth at 45 with highlights in my hair.''

However, his baby face means he is sometimes refused entry to late night venues.

"Yeah of course, at a nightclub doors or bar doors. I don't mind, it's nice, it's humbling," he said.

The boys are currently on the American leg of their On The Road Again tour, and despite having one of the most recognisable faces on the planet, Niall says he's never donned a disguise to avoid fans or the paparazzi.

"No, because if you get caught wearing a disguise you look like a bigger idiot than you did before," he said.

The 21-year-old added that he's never pulled a sickie while working as a member of one of the world's biggest boybands.

"No actually, I haven't. I've thought about it a couple of times, not for a gig but maybe for a photo shoot," he told Scott Mills on BBC Radio 1.

On a more serious note, the young star spoke out against fans and paparazzi who chase the band on motorways, calling the chases "dangerous and scary".

"We've been chased down the street and on the motorways at 70 miles an hour, and surely that's not safe," he said.

"They're hanging out of windows, stuff like that - at 70 miles an hour, switching lanes.

"They're going fast and it's quite scary," he added.
