Karl Lagerfeld has turned down a cameo role in 'Zoolander 2'.
The 81-year-old Chanel creative director was approached to make an appearance in the long-awaited modelling spoof sequel but has no desire to turn his hand to a new career.
He said: ''I don't want to be in the movie. They wanted me to be in the movie! I'm not an actor.''
The film was officially announced when stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson made a surprise appearance in character as Derek Zoolander and Hansel McDonald during Valentino's recent Paris Fashion Week show but Karl didn't welcome the interruption.
The outspoken designer told Canada's HELLO! magazine: ''I didn't like it.''
A source said: ''Kanye is friends with Will and appeared briefly in 'Anchorman 2' but he wanted to be in 'Zoolander 2' even more. It's very likely that Kim will also appear in some capacity.''
Vogue editor Anna Wintour, Billy Zane and Victoria's Secret Angel Karlie Kloss are also all going to be in the sequel.
Naomi Campbell, Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn and Alessandra Ambrosio are also rumoured for cameos.
'Zoolander 2' is scheduled for release in February 2016.
