Director Terrence Malick is reportedly a huge fan of Zoolander and regularly quotes it to friends.
Ben Stiller once dressed up as his dim-witted fashion model Derek Zoolander to record a birthday message for the Oscar-nominatedThin Red Line filmmaker, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Production designer Jack Fisk, who has worked on all of Malick’s films, said: “I think Zoolander is one of Terry’s favorite movies ever. He watches it all the time, and he likes quoting it.”
Commence wrapping your brain around that, if it is indeed true.
