One Direction gets waxed! But this didn’t involve any painful removal of chest hair – the wax figures of Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne were unveiled at Madame Tussaud’s in New York on Thursday (July 18) as part of their “world tour” that will include stops at Madame Tussauds Sydney and Madame Tussauds Tokyo.
Extra is reporting that the reveal – that was supposed to take place outside on the hot summer day – had to be moved inside at the last minute over concerns that the British hearthrobs would melt.
The band – who first got to see the figures when they were on display in London, were impressed with their likenesses. “They look wicked, they’re bang on!” Zayn said, while Louis added that he “can’t wait for fans to see them.”
Niall was impressed with the details that were included with with their waxy counterparts. “It’s really good, isn’t it?! This is weird – he’s wearing my actual shoes!” he laughed.
“This is definitely a privilege, getting a wax figure,” Liam said, and Harry was clearly touched. “It’s amazing and such an honor.”
