Stiller paid tribute to the late David Bowie, who passed away just last month,?admitting he would have “loved” the star to appear in Zoolander 2.?Bowie had a cameo role in 2001’s Zoolander as the judge of a fashion “walk off” between male models Derek Zoolander ?(Stiller) and Hansel (Wilson).
“He was a huge influence on so many people, I think on our culture, in the last 40, 50 years – when you go back and look at how long he was making music and how ahead of the curve he always was and always taking chances.?So I think I’m like everyone else – influenced by him in that way,” he told The Mirror.
“And it would have been great to have him in the second one.”
Ben Stiller set out to achieve a new record – for the longest selfie stick.?The star was presented with an official Guinness certificate following the feat, in which he took a snap with a group of assembled celebs using the eight-and-a-half metre long device.
