Zayn Malik on Potentially Acting in the Future: “I’d definitely be interested if I was given the right role.”

Singer Zayn Malik smoulders on the new September 2016 issue of Elle UK magazine, where he opens up about leaving One Direction, his interest in trying out acting, and more!

On Leaving One Direction:

“At that time in my life I felt I had done everything I could do there and I just needed to change it up. It didn’t feel brave. I just don’t have it in me to feel fully secure in anything I do. I always strive towards something better. It’s why I think sometimes I come across the wrong way, a bit distant. I’m just stressed out trying to control how I’m perceived. I think about things a lot.”

On His New Solo Career:

“My entire life has changed in the last year. I’m still taking it all in. I’ve found so much out about myself. Mostly how in love with music I still was. The album is a build up of six years and never being able to express what I wanted to say. I had something to get off my chest.”

On Potentially Acting in the Future:

“I started acting when I was in school with theatre studies and then music came after. It completely stopped when I joined the band but I’d definitely be interested if I was given the right role.”

On his Personal Style:

“Since leaving One Direction I’ve been given the freedom to be able to wear whatever I want and that’s made it more interesting. More creative. I can say I want to wear metal arms and it’ll happen.”

On his mum and sisters:

“I enjoyed the womanly influence. I have a lot of respect for women because of them. They are so strong, powerful and do everything themselves…”

On girlfriend Gigi Hadid:

“She’s super intelligent, I think that’s why it works so well. And we do the same type of job so we get that with each other.”
