"Meanwhile, we were all kind of like 'God, you guys really are singers, you make us sound way better.' We were excited to be singing with One Direction."

Steve Carell, who plays weatherman Brick Tamland in the film, added: "They were great. They are actually incredible sweet guys and really talented. I was impressed by them. Actually, before I left SNL that was the last thing I said. 

"I told them all, to see people, to see young men that are so popular and so successful and so grounded and cool and nice is really great to see."

Will finally added: "They are actually great guys in that boyband world, thy have no attitude. They are actually the sweetest guys and were so excited to sing 'Afternoon Delight' with us that it was great. And they have beautiful hair so I can't argue with them."
