When you think of One Direction’s fiercest rivals, 63-year-old actor William H. Macy certainly doesn’t come to mind!
But during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael, he threw some serious shade at the popular English boy band.
Macy, who recently took his daughter to a 1D concert, explained that the five-man band was talented, but “couldn’t put on a good show with a gun to their head.”
And he doesn’t stop there. He had a bone to pick with heartthrob Harry Styles, who was spotted chowing down on a sandwich mid-performance.
“I mean call me old-fashioned, but when I’m downstage singing my heart out, you better not eat a sandwich behind me,” Macy asserted.
Even the band’s wardrobe was a source of frustration, Macy explained.
“They had on crappy jeans and a stupid t-shirt, and then, they do a costume change in the middle of the show and they come out in different crappy jeans and a stupid t-shirt!”
Ouch! Those are some pretty ballsy statements, considering 1D rabid fan base.
“Oh, I’m going to pay hell for this!” Macy laughed.
