Matthew Fox can't stand One Direction

Matthew Fox.

Matthew Fox loves music -- and that's why he doesn't love One Direction. According to the former "Lost" star, the sound that comes from the hit boy band isn't his idea of a good groove.

But Fox just can't escape the "What Makes You Beautiful" act. As he explained to Conan O'Brien Wednesday night, his 15-year-old daughter is obsessed with the young Brits and the musical divide is driving a wedge in the family.

"You know, I'm a huge music fan, and we're having that classic father-child argument about music right now," the actor said. "So I'm trying to encourage her to explore music that's outside (the) sort of boy bands."

It's a tough sell.

"I upset her every time I talk about One Direction, so we've pretty much had to agree to not talk about One Direction at all," he admitted. "Every time she brought up One Direction, I felt it was my responsibility to bust their chops, and she would get very upset."

And if the teen wants to see her favorite heartthrob -- Harry Styles -- and the rest of the guys perform, she's on her own. When asked if he'd accompany her to a concert, Fox delivered a convincing, "No way!"
