One Direction’s Liam Payne hailed a hero for saving friend burned in fire at his home by ‘beating out flames and dousing him with water’

it just does,” Horan said after mentioning the character Janice from Friends, whose infamous cackle was a running joke on the show. Style, who has been linked to many stars including Taylor Swift, then jumped in with his own deal breakers. “If you are going on a first date just be early first of all. Just don’t be late it’s tardy and nobody likes tardy people,” he said. Rumors surrounding Styles’ love life are constantly swirling, and in One Direction’s recent GQ feature, the curly-haired heartthrob commented on the gossip, saying that, “Some of them are funny. Some of them are ridiculous. Some of them are annoying. I don’t want to be one of those people that complains about the rumours. I never like it when a celebrity goes on Twitter and says, ‘This isn’t true!’ It is what it is, I tend not to do that. “The only time it gets really annoying is that if you get into a relationship and you get into a place where you really like someone and then things are being written in the papers that affect them and how they see you,” Styles said. “Then it can get annoying.” In a surprising interview, however, it did seem that he currently had someone special in his life, as he told Fabulous magazine: “There is … I’ve got someone that I like, yeah.

One Direction This Is Us NYC Premiere Was Like Beatlemania (Photos)

The independent studio is hopeful the film may now reach $120 million at the domestic box office, Lomis said. PHOTOS: A guide to the current top pop ensembles Meanwhile, even though “This Is Us” came in a bit below industry expectations and two other new films — “Getaway” and “Closed Circuit” — flopped, it was still the biggest Labor Day on record, not adjusting for inflation. All movies released over the long weekend grossed a total of $157 million — beating 2007’s $148-million haul. Not surprisingly, “This Is Us” attracted a strong female contingent. Roughly 87% of the audience were women, and 65% were under the age of 17. Those who saw the movie loved it, assigning it an average grade of A, according to market research firm CinemaScore. Shot during the first six months of 2013, the movie is directed by “Super Size Me” filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, who trailed the group on their current world tour. Produced by Sony Pictures ‘ TriStar label for $10 million, “This Is Us” is off to a better start than the most recent concert documentary to hit theaters, ” Katy Perry : Part of Me.” Last summer, the pop star’s film opened to just $7.1 million; One Direction’s flick grossed $15.8 million in its first three days in release. Still, Directioners didn’t prove to be quite as rabid as Beliebers: Justin Bieber ‘s film “Never Say Never” launched with $29.5 million in 2011. Overseas, “This Is Us” launched in 53 foreign countries including Mexico and France and grossed $14.5 million. As expected, the film performed best in the band’s native U.K., selling $5.7 million worth of tickets there. PHOTOS: Hollywood Backlot moments Tweens weren’t as eager to see former “Wizards of Wavery Place” star Selena Gomez ‘s new movie, “Getaway.” The picture — which has the dubious distinction of being the worst-reviewed film of the summer — spun out at the box office this weekend with a four-day opening of just $5.5 million. As much as critics hated it — the film has an embarrassing 2% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes — audiences disliked it, too, giving the film an average grade of C+. The picture stars Gomez as a computer whiz who helps a man ( Ethan Hawke ) trying to rescue his kidnapped wife. Gomez, 21, has had better luck singing than acting.

Hey, I’m grateful for any new followers, even if they’re the result of being mistaken for Zayn’s father. God, I’m old! On the carpet we spotted the boys hamming it up for countless selfies with their fans, and were flanked by more security guards than 5 Tom Cruises, and drew a crowd equal to just as many. Upon entering the theater, we witnessed the boys goofing around while hitting up the concession stand for some popcorn and soda before taking their seats. Boys will be boys, or in this case, millionaires will be boys who can goof off and not get in trouble because they have more protection than a Hugh Hefner prenup. About the movie: Well, I wish I could tell you about it other than it was Morgan Spurlock’s first concert documentary. Fortunately, we didn’t stay, but I did get a nice t-shirt, 3D glasses, and chatted it up with Stephen Baldwin who was there body guarding his 17-year- old daughter Hailey. On the way out I was lucky enough to score one of the official movie posters (one of several) hung along the red carpet to bring home to my 14yr old daughter (what a good dad). I thought for sure we would be mauled to death for this poster as we hurried past the hundreds of screaming fans and darted into a waiting cab. Luckily, they were still too crazed over seeing the band to notice the old men dashing by. The after-party was held at Gotham Hall and was filled with hundreds of tweens, their moms, and a dad or 2 (lets not forget Stephen). Nirschel and I were given our 21 and over wrist stamp shaped like a wine bottle and immediately hit the bar ordering our usual Jack-n-diet Cokes, planning to head out early since we were the only creepy old dudes there over 30 (and without kids, and holding a One Direction poster). Once we hit the main dance-floor we spotted a beautiful blonde we saw earlier on the carpet named Madeline Brewer.
