Zayn Malik and Harry Styles of One Direction recently gave an interview together where they talked about everything from Taylor Swift to rumors that their group is going to have to change its name because of an American band (they said that they won't). However, the guys addressed one very important topic at the beginning of the interview - whether or not footballer Sharrod Wellingham is Zayn's doppelgÃ¤nger.
The Aussie sports star has apparently been tweeting that he resembles like Zayn, so an interviewer from the Herald Sun just had to ask Zayn himself what he thinks of his supposed lookalike. Not too long ago Sharrod tweeted that he thinks that he and Zayn could swap places. The footballer would probably love to try to infiltrate One Direction because of all the female attention that Zayn Malik and Harry Styles get - what guy wouldn't want that? However, Zayn and Harry don't think that such a swap could be pulled off, and why would Zayn mess up his hair by playing football, anyway?
Zayn Malik was shown a photo of Sharrod Wellingham, and he said this: "He's quite ripped, so I don't quite look like that with my shirt off." Harry Styles chimed in by saying that Sharrod looks like Zayn when he's laughing, but in one photo he looks more like Pauly D from Jersey Shore (not sure if the footballer would take that as a compliment or an insult).
So at least Directioners don't have to worry about Sharrod trying to steal his spot in the band (and he probably couldn't sing as well as Zayn, anyway).
Still, Sharrod Wellingham seems to be a pretty big fan of One Direction, so maybe Zayn should meet up with him while he's in Australia. The guys could grab a beer together as long as Sharrod doesn't have to drive anywhere - he's gotten in trouble for drinking and driving before. So he's kind of a bad boy just like Zayn, who could show off all of his tattoos. That way Sharrod could copy his ink in an effort to really pull off being Zayn's lookalike.
Check out the video below and see if you see the resemblance.
