The members of the British boy band are still too young to drink legally in the US—but they ain't letting that stop them.

It ain’t easy being in one of the world’s most popular boy bands—just ask the members of One Direction, the British quintet behind this summer's eternal hit, "What Makes You Beautiful." The young stars, aged between 18 and 20, have been hit with a “no booze, smoking or sex” order from their management, to help keep up their squeaky-clean, kid-friendly image. But they don't seem to be taking it too seriously. While they're of legal drinking age at home in England, they're still underage in the US—not that that's prevented them from drinking on tour. "We have to get it out of the mini bar at the hotel,” reveals 19-year-old member Niall Horan. “That's the only way!" They admit to craving a few pints of beer while they’re on the road. They'll have to choose between conquering those blossoming cravings and plundering more hotel supplies as they continue to tour the US to promote their second album, which is due out next month.
