Watch Ben Stiller Get George Stephanopoulos to Do 'Zoolander'-Inspired Look
The actor stopped by 'GMA' to promote his new film 'While We're Young' but spent a few seconds as Derek Zoolander, flashing Derek's famous "Blue Steel" expression.
Ben Stiller stopped by Good Morning America on Friday to talk about his new movie While We're Young, but co-host George Stephanopoulos wouldn't let him leave without talking a bit about another highly anticipated film Stiller has coming up: Zoolander 2.
After years of development amid fans clamoring for more of their favorite male model, Stiller and Co. finally began filming the sequel in Rome earlier this year.
Stiller's Derek Zoolander and Owen Wilson (as rival-turned-friend Hansel) also made a much-publicized appearance at Paris Fashion Week, walking for Valentino, which Paramount used to officially announce the film and its release date.
After playing a clip of Zoolander walking the runway, Stephanopoulos asked Stiller what Zoolander would say about that. The actor-comedian launched into an impromptu impression, even getting Stephanopoulos involved.
"Well, it's always an honor to walk for Valentino. Especially since my favorite holiday is Valentino-tine's Day," Stiller said as Zoolander. He then flashed Zoolander's famous "Blue Steel" look.
But he wasn't done.
"George, you have really good bone structure," Stiller's Zoolander prodded the GMA co-host. "Why don't you do a look?"
Stephanopoulos stared into the camera for a bit and Stiller's Zoolander christened the look "Grecian Burn."
On the subject of While We're Young, in which Stiller stars alongside Naomi Watts, Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried, the actor talked about how many elements in the film ring true, including the visit to the doctor in which Stiller's character is told he has arthritis. While Stiller hasn't been diagnosed with arthritis, he had a similar scene play out at a visit to the real doctor that he and director Noah Baumbach share.
In the movie, Stiller and Watts play an older couple who start hanging out with a couple in their 20s, played by Driver and Seyfried. One of the many things the film explores, Stiller says, is what happens when you realize "that I'm at a certain point in my life. I'm at the age that I thought my parents always were."
