Ben Stiller understands the backlash surrounding now-President Donald Trump’s cameo in his iconic 2001 movie “Zoolander” but the actor/director isn’t cutting Trump’s scene from the film anytime soon.
During an interview on The Daily Beast‘s podcast “The New Abnormal,” Stiller spoke about his decision to keep the scene despite negative comments from fans.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I’ve had people reach out to me and say, you should edit Donald Trump out of ‘Zoolander,’” the 54-year-old explained. “But at the end of the day, that was a time when that exists and that happened.”
“There were so many movies [back then] that had a silly cameo from Donald Trump,” Stiller added. “He represented a certain thing.”
Trump made many appearances in TV shows and movies in the 1990s to early 2000s, including “Two Weeks Notice,” “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York,” “Sex & the City,” “Spin City,” and “The Little Rascals.”
On the Zoolander cameo, Stiller said, “We were shooting at the now-defunct VH1 Fashion Awards … and as people were coming up the red carpet, we pulled them aside and asked them to talk about Derek Zoolander, and so Trump and Melania did that.”
