  • Matilda
    Derek, I don't know if you're familiar with the belief that some aboriginal tribes hold. It's the concept that a photo might steal a part of your soul. What are your thoughts on that, as someone who gets his picture taken for a living?

  • Some Guy
    That Blue Steel look he does? Oh, my gosh! The style and the hair. You know, it's almost like the new afro for the white man, but it's beautiful.

  • Derek Zoolander
    Well, I guess I would have to answer your question with another question. How many "abo-digitals" do you see modeling?

    You hate to see something like that at an event like this. Ugly protesters bothering beautiful people. There's no denying Jacobim Mugatu has used cheap Malaysian workers to make his, and most of the garment industry's, clothes. Derek! Derek!

    Young, hot, brash. With more covers in his first year than any rookie model ever and an attitude that says, "Who cares? It's only fashion."

  • Hansel
    I hear a lot of words like "beauty" and "handsomeness" and "incredibly chiseled features." To me, that's like a vanity, a self-absorption, that I try to steer clear of. I dig the bungee. For me, it's just the way I live my life. I grip it and I rip it. I live it with a lot of flair. I live it on the edge, where I gotta be. I wasn't like every other kid, who dreams about being an astronaut. I was always more interested in what bark was made out of on a tree. Richard Gere's a real hero of mine. Sting. Sting would be another person who's a hero. The music that he's created over the years, I don't really listen to it, but the fact that he's making it, But I'm here, and I'm gonna give it my best shot. I respect that. I care desperately about what I do. Do I know what product I'm selling? No. Do I know what I'm doing today? No. But I'm here, and I'm gonna give it my best shot.

    Over the past decade, male modeling has had a shadow cast over it by one man and five syllables, Der-ek Zoo-lan-der.

  • Derek Zoolander
    Modeling, to me, isn't just about being good-looking, or having a lot of fun and being really, really good-looking. The calendar was great, because it gave people a chance to see a side of my versatility. The original Greek word for model means "misshapen ball of clay", and I try to think about that every time I get in front of a camera.
