JOHNNY DEPP once helped ONE DIRECTION get into a wild Hollywood party because they were too young to go out clubbing in the U.S.
The Hollywood actor invited the Best Song Ever hitmakers to his home in Los Angeles to meet his daughter Lily-Rose, who is a huge fan of the boy band.
Singer Louis Tomlinson admits the visit was "a bit awkward" at first, but the Brits eventually relaxed and enjoyed a tour of Depp's mansion.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "We didn't perform, we just hung out. We were round there for a good two or three hours - he's a top bloke. The first 20 minutes were a bit awkward but then it was fine. We didn't talk much about work, just how we were finding it all. His house is so cool though, as you can imagine."
To thank the boys for coming over, the Pirates of the Caribbean star arranged for them to attend a boozy bash thrown by filmmaker Robert Rodriguez - and Tomlinson insists it was a memorable night.
The pop star recalls, "We were asking where we could go - not being legal to drink (in the U.S.) - so Johnny sorted it. He couldn't go but said it was fine for us to and I'm pretty sure it was Sin City director Robert Rodriguez's bash. It was a crazy party - really full-on, so Hollywood, like in the movies."
