Not a lot of great movies began as skits on the VH1 Fashion Awards, but Stiller created such a hilarious character for the long-defunct TV specials in the mid-1990s that he felt compelled to expand it into a feature-length movie. Zoolander hit theaters just weeks after 9/11, which initially seemed like horrible timing for a goofball comedy.
