Zayn Malik reportedly struggled with fame while he was a member of One Direction, according to Morgan Spurlock, the director of the band’s documentary This Is Us.

“He always struggled with being on the road. He’s a homebody. He wanted nothing more than to sit in his house and spray paint and draw and do art, and I think this explosion that happened to him — which was something none of them ever predicted,” Morgan shared to Huffington Post about the 22-year-old singer.
