One Direction has over 19 million "directioners" on facebook and 13 million on twitter, but they also have some big-name celebrity fans, including Rod Stewart, Barbara Walters, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Johnny Depp! One Direction has over 19 million "directioners" on facebook and 13 million on twitter. Sure, a lot of those fans are teens, but some can actually drive themselves to a 1D concert. Their big-name celebrity fans include Rod Stewart, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Barbara Walters and Johnny Depp!

Johnny once invited 1D over to his house! His 14-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose Melody Depp, is a big fan of the boy band and wanted to see them perform on the Ellen show, so dad-of-the-year Johnny "hooked it up." He even had the boys over to his house to hang out with his daughter after their performance, giving her the ultimate 1D fan experience.

Rod Stewart has also had a member of 1D over to his house for dinner. While dating rumors were circling around Harry Styles and Rod's daughter Kimberly Stewart, Rod had nothing but wonderful things to say about the band member during an interview on Alan Carr's Chatty Man show.

"He's lovely. He couldn't be kinder, a funny guy," said Rod about Harry. "He's brilliant."

For some reason, Harry seems to be the older-fan favorite. Rihanna is also a Harry fan!

"I watch their videos and I remember thinking, 'Wow, [Harry] is a star." He seems very sure,'" said Rihanna. "It seems, like, it's so natural to him."

Barbara Walters also seems to be a 1D fan. She chose them for one (not five) of her 10 Most Fascinating People last year. After interviewing them, she said Harry was also her favorite and called him "the sexier one."

At least Katy Perry is spreading the 1D love. She revealed she's also a fan and has a favorite (who's not Harry)! She actually shared a friendly kiss with Niall Horan at an award show!

"I'm thrilled for the success they're enjoying and love hanging out with them," said Katy. "Niall is just lovely."

One Directions' new movie This Is Us hits theaters August 30.
