You don't have to be a Directioner to know who 1D are more or less. You probably recognize at least one of their songs on the radio, right?
But Robert Pattinson is clueless! It looks like he's a little out of the loop, because he has no idea who they are!
A few days ago, he was asked who his favorite boy band is:
“Westlife, definitely. Westlife are one of my favorite bands.”
Westlife formed in 1998 and broke up last year, so Rob's taste is a little out of date.
But the big surprise that he's never even heard One Direction:
“I actually don't know any songs that One Direction have done. I've just seen pictures of them.”
Well, at least he recognizes who they are in photos, just in case he runs into them on the red carpet someday!
Rob also admitted in an interview that he didn't even know that they were British and Irish until recently. Wow!
