If you’ve wondered what Derek Zoolander has been up to for 15 years but are unable to wait for the February 12th premiere of the Zoolander 2 sequel to find out, Vogue is here for you. The mag’s reporter asked him every grueling, hard-hitting investigatory journalism question you’ve always wanted to know (including his all time favorite look!). Watch the most ridiculously good looking male model on the planet answer questions (and, okay, get a little confused by questions) in the latest installment of Vogue‘s 73 Questions video series.


Zoolander gave us a glimpse inside his winter N.Y.C. townhouse (he summers on the upstairs floors, of course) and explains that the city’s diversity is really what makes this his favorite place to live: “You have really good looking people and also very attractive people.” And as befitting an A-lister of his status, he “hardly ever” takes the subway … after all, “sandwiches are a gateway to cake.”

Similar to the apartment he shared with his buddies (RIP) in the first movie, his pad is still filled with models — Erin Heatherton spins at a DJ booth and Zoë Kravitz hangs out on his couch.

He’s kept in such peak physical form after all these years thanks to a state-of-the-art gym (located right off of his elaborately-decorated foyer) and grueling workout regimen — he does four “clothes rack” reps a day and intense interval training (which includes staring in the mirror “for 3 to 4 minutes out of every 10”).

We found out some other interesting facts, including: the movie that made him cry was 12 Years a Slave (thanks to Brad Pitt’s “perfect” highlights) and that he’s taken up some new hobbies, such as knitting (his brows) and decompressing with kale colonics, (“no question”).

Zoolander has had an intensely fashionable month gearing up for the Zoolander sequel. He just landed the February cover of Vogue (alongside Penélope Cruz), and is starring in an ad campaign for his first signature scent — No. 2. (Because “nothing attracts like the scent of No. 2.”)
