Bowie made a terrific cameo appearance in Zoolander back in 2001 as he played himself and judged a 'walk-off' between Zoolander and Hansel.

Stiller, who was in the director's chair as well playing the title role, says he was shocked when the music icon agreed to be part of the comedy movie.

Speaking to the Daily Star Online, Stiller said: "I'm still shocked that he agreed to do it. It was the best cameo ever for us.

"He was incredibly gracious and kind to everybody and he completely got it, as you can imagine. David was so ahead of the curve, I guess. It was really a high point [in my career] that he came down to spend time with us."

David Bowie passed away in January after a battle with cancer, he was sixty-nine.

Stiller was on the blue carpet in London last night for the premiere of Zoolander 2, which sees him reprise the title role fifteen years after the success of the first film.

As well as taking on the role of Zoolander again, the sequel sees Stiller back in the director's chair for the first time since The Secret Life of Walter Mitty back in 2013.

Penelope Cruz, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig, and Will Ferrell and Justin Theroux were just some of the other stars who thrilled fans at the premiere.

Wilson and Ferrell are reprising their roles as Hansel and Mugatu while Cruz and Wiig are two of the big new additions to the cast list. We are also going to see the likes of Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, and Benedict Cumberbatch make cameo appearances.

Zoolander 2 is released 12th February.
