Robbie Williams - Friction In One Direction? Robbie Williams Reckons There Must Be.

Just when you thought his trouble-making days were over, Robbie Williams is stirring again. Robbie’s boy band days may be well and truly past him, but that doesn’t mean he can’t remember what it’s like working with a group of lads that have been bundled together in the name of entertainment. It’s no secret that Robbie Williams, 38, didn’t always get on with Gary Barlow, 41, during their days in Take That, and Robbie reckons that One Direction probably aren’t the tight unit that they always present themselves as.

I loved Gary and disliked him,” Robbie has said, according to Shortlist Magazine. “I'm sure that in One Direction right now, there's going to be hatred between certain members for certain things - all young and daft stuff.” We’re not sure if Robbie’s got some inside information or whether or not he’s simply basing his opinions on his own experience, but it wouldn’t take a huge stretch of the imagination to consider that the 1D lads aren’t all best mates all of the time. Still, The One Direction boys have only been together since 2010 and if there are any cracks in the band’s united front, they’re doing a very good job of sealing them over.

Robbie also took some time explaining what’s changed since his womanizing days and his current spell of marital bliss (Rob and his wife Ayda recently welcomed a daughter, Theodora Rose into the world). The answer? Alcohol. “It's a hundred times easier when you don't drink, and I don't drink," Robbie tells Shortlist. "If I drank, we'd literally be f*cked. If I drank, I could not keep it in my trousers at all.”
