They're some wild and crazy guys!

One Direction have become known for their clean-cut image, but their antics off the stage paint another picture.

Niall Horan revealed that when he and his bandmates — Harry StylesLouis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne— each turned 18 (the legal gambling age in the United Kingdom), they celebrated with a trip to the casino.

But when the British boy band gambled off a large amount of cash, their management team wasn't too pleased, to say the least.

"Like most of the stupid things we do, it seemed like it was a good idea at the time," Horan said in an interview with We Love Pop magazine. "We just thought, 'We’re 18, this is the first time we’ve been able to spend a bit of money in weeks because we’ve been on the road.'"

Horan won a "reasonable" amount of £100 (the equivalent of $155.98), but quickly stopped his winning streak. As for his pals, the Irish singer had "no comment."

"Let’s just say it got a bit ugly and a lot of money was lost. A lot," Horan added. "When our management found out, we got a serious dressing-down about it."

With the temptation of fame at every turn, Horan knows that he can count on his bandmates to have each others' backs, especially when they fall out of line.
"I think that’s the beauty of being in a band. Often people who have had fame from such a young age as solo artists find it harder to stay grounded, because it’s just them," Tomlinson said.
Adding: "But with us, we’ve got each other. The minute one of us falls out of line, another one of us will set them straight!"
In the interview, 1D kept things light-hearted, opening up about their relationships and love lives.
"I don’t like to be single. When I met Danielle I was with a girlfriend," said Payne about his lady love Danielle Peazer. "We broke up and within four weeks I was with Danielle. So I’ve never really been single."
As for Tomlinson, he opened up about his long-term relationship with Eleanor Calder.
"It’s hard to say this early on. I’m still young!" he said about the possibility of his girfriend being "The One." "But I am incredibly happy at the moment."
The band will kick-off their Take Me Home tour on Feb. 23.
