Harry Styles insisted that he noticed similarities between his own group and the iconic Liverpudlian band after watching one of their films.
"We watched that film of The Beatles when they first touched down in America and we saw a real likeness with our personalities," Styles told the Daily Star.
Niall Horan added: "They loved having a laugh like us."
Styles also admitted that he feels torn between preferring being back home in London and touring the United States.
"When we're in America I'd say home is London, and when we're back here we feel like home is there," he explained. "It's a bit weird."
One Direction's new single 'Live While We're Young' was released last week and reached number two on the UK singles chart.
