If you’ve been compiling your dream list of Zoolander 2 fashion cameos ever since Derek and Hansel closed the Valentino show then you can take one out of the mix: Karl Lagerfeld will not be appearing.
He may have been considered a sure thing given that he had a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it role in the first film but, sadly, he's had a change of heart.
Karl told Hello! Canada that, although he has been asked to appear in the sequel, he is less than keen. ‘I don't want to be in the movie!’ he says, adding, 'I'm not an actor'. He was also underwhelmed by the appearance of the movie’s stars on the catwalk during Paris Fashion Week.
Nevermind; even without him the film's fashion credentials are shaping up nicely. Naomi Campbell, Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne are all slated to appear and, given that she masterminded their Valentino appearance, we'd be very surprised if Anna Wintour didn't crop up too.
