Karl Lagerfeld isn't trying to add too many hyphens to his already lengthy list of occupations.

The fashion designer recently opened up to Hello! Canada about why he turned down a chance to take part in an upcoming Hollywood feature film.

When asked about the rumors regarding a possible cameo in Zoolander 2, Lagerfeld explained why he ended up rejecting the opportunity.

"I didn't want to be in the movie! They wanted me to be in the movie," he revealed before adding, "I didn't like it. I'm not an actor." Oh snap!

And while the future flick isn't going to get any love from Lagerfeld, there are plenty of other stars who jumped at the chance to star alongside Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson.

And insider previously revealed to E! News that Naomi CampbellCara DelevingneJourdan Dunn, Karlie Kloss and Alessandra Ambrosio will all make appearances in the highly anticipated sequel.

Kristen Wiig has been seen—looking rather ridiculous, we might add!—on the film's set, while Penélope Cruz is reportedly expected to join the star-studded ensemble cast as well.

But all eyes were on Stiller and Wilson as they made a surprise appearance last month and strutted their stuff on the runway at the Valentino show during Paris Fashion Week.

The famous pals and co-stars posted with fashion industry insiders, including Vogue editrix Anna Wintour and snapped selfies in front of the Eiffel Tower.

The film is currently in production and set to hit theaters in February 12, 2016.
