The UK actor says he would rather be in Westlife than One Direction as he doesn't know their songs.

Twilight star Robert Pattinson has claimed he has never heard a song by UK boy band One Direction.

The 'Live While We're Young' five-piece have had a hugely successful year in 2012, scoring two number one albums in America as well as performing across the globe, however British actor Robert says he isn't at all familiar with the worldwide pop stars.

"Westlife definitely," Robert said in an MSN web chat this week, when asked which boy band he would rather be in out of the two. "I don't think I've even heard of any One Direction's songs.

[They're] one of my favourite bands," Robert added, referring to the Irish four-piece, who disbanded recently.

Robert has been promoting the latest and final film in The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn: Part Two, around the world over the past two weeks.

One Direction's newly released second album 'Take Me Home' is currently number one in over thirty countries around the world.

One Direction are currently preparing to launch a brand new world tour in 2013 ahead of releasing their first 3D film in cinemas next August.
