Owen Wilson Meets Malaysian Prime Minister In ‘Zoolander’ Moment

Owen Wilson Meets Malaysian Prime Minister

In a life-imitates-art moment, Zoolander star Owen Wilson recently got to meet the current Prime Minster of Malaysia, and the actor’s friend and frequent co-star Ben Stiller tweeted a photo of Wilson with the PM at a formal event.

Although not as dramatic as its on-screen counterpart, the photo shows Wilson posing and shaking hands with Prime Minster Najib Razak. Of the photo, Stiller wrote, “Hansel meets the real Prime minister of Malaysia!” (See the photo here above.)

If you’ve seen the 2001 comedy Zoolander, then you know how awesome this shot is. In the film’s plot, Stiller’s title character, a dim-witted, but highly successful male model, is brainwashed by the maniacal Mugatu (Will Ferrell) to assassinate the Prime Minster of Malaysia. Wilson plays Hansel, Stiller’s new model competition, who ultimately teams up with him to thwart Mugatu’s evil plan.

Below is a video of the assassination attempt scene from Zoolander, found via Buzzfeed.

Back in 2010, it was confirmed that Paramount Pictures and Ben Stiller were planning to move forward with a long-rumored Zoolander sequel.
