15 Multi-Talented Directors Who Starred In Their Own Movies
Ben Stiller: Zoolander
If you’re looking for someone to thank for never being able to take “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” seriously again (that is, if you weren’t already), look no further. Comedic actor Ben Stiller, star and iconic face of Zoolander, also directed the satire. The “Blue Steel” actor based the film on shorter projects he used for the VH1 Fashion Awards in 1996 and 1997. The 2001 movie received mixed reviews and was unsurprisingly banned in Malaysia for its “assassination of the prime minister” plot, but remains both a fan favorite and incredible quote source. Unfortunately, we cannot say the same for its 2016 sequel.
