When it comes to Zoolander 2Poor reception and ticket sales, Ben Stiller still describes it as “not a great experience.” However, in a new interview with RespectedNow, the star is at peace with the movie’s stunning flip-flop at the box office, opening even more fun doors.
“if Zoolander 2 It was a big hit, and then people were saying “Zoolander 3! Do this movie! this movie! ‘Maybe that kept me away by having the space to work on development Dannemora‘ says Stiller, referring to his Showtime series Escape in Dannemora.

Stiller also says that with a failure Zoolander 2He ended the directing tradition of stepping on a bottle for good luck because before filming began, a piece of glass went through the sole of his shoe and into his foot. However, the writer, producer, director, and actor has since decided to cherish this sharp, broken glass.
“I may have distracted from other shiny, shiny things, but it opened up a path where I could do what I’ve honestly wanted to do for years and years, which is: just channel something!” Stiller explains. “To say, I’m only going to work on this project that I want to work on, because it takes a while to get these things started, and if you don’t stick with it you won’t get there.”
