Louis Tomlinson: Did He Almost Leave One Direction Too?

by at .

One Direction isn't having the best time at the moment.

Zayn Malik quit the band last week, but it looks like Louis Tomlinson could have easily followed suit.

The 23-year-old was allegedly offered to get a head start on a film career in Hollywood, but it would have came at a price. He would have had to leave the group to take this gig.

"There were several meetings and it was something that Louis really, really wanted to do," a source told The Daily Mirror.

It is understood that Tomlinson would have played the role of a footballer in a 1960s movie, but it wasn't meant to be. His schedule just wouldn't have worked because of his commitment to 1D's On The Road Again Tour.

"He loves football, so the chance to play a footballer was a huge temptation in itself, but he also loved the script and very much saw it as the beginning of an acting career, which is something that he is considering when 1D do finally go their separate ways."

On top of all of this, the singer also called time on his relationship with his girlfriend last week. In the wake of Zayn's abrupt departure from the band, the remaining members of the band released an official statement to put the minds of fans worldwide at ease.

"We're really sad to see Zayn go, but we totally respect his decision and send him all our love for the future. The past five years have been beyond amazing, we've gone through so much together, so we will always be friends."

Could 1D have survived the blow if two of them left?
