Marc Jacobs talks dad jeans

Marc Jacobs was forced to sport the "worst fitting dad jeans" for his acting debut.

The famed designer stars in movie Disconnect which is released in April.

Marc was completely at the costume team’s mercy for the shoot, with his character donning less stylish ensembles than he's used to.

"But then when they had the fittings for the movie, when they saw me, my design team was all in hysterics. I had these really tacky suburban disco shirts with crucifixes embroidered on them, and the worst fitting dad jeans – I never wear jeans anyway – but these were just bad and acid washed with flannel zip jackets sewn to the side," Marc told EW.com. "And they put big silver rings on my fingers and earrings. So they just couldn’t stop laughing.”

Marc enjoyed his experience as an actor. However the recognised design talent isn't planning on turning his back on fashion in order to pursue a career in Hollywood just yet.

“I felt grateful to have the experience, and the cast and the crew were amazing, but it was like going into another world,” Marc continued. “I enjoy new experiences. And it was funny to have a trailer to go to, but I didn’t enjoy the actual tedious acting experience. There were long nights and long days, and it was freezing cold outside. And you know you stand around and wait and you eat a lot of junk food because that’s what there is around - coffee and donuts. So those are not things that are good for me. I don’t really enjoy spending my time that way. I enjoyed saying I did it and I enjoyed parts of doing it, but you know, it’s not ever been my dream to act or anything like that. It’s probably the last time I’ll ever do it.”

Marc added that while the movie making business is not glamorous, neither is fashion. The trendsetter explained it takes years and years of hard labour to produce a catwalk collection.

“When you see a fashion show you see those seven minutes of what was six months of tedious work of you know, going up an inch and down an inch, changing it from one shade of red to another shade of red. So it’s the same as any creative process,” Marc explained. “The result is what we see, but the process is really labour intensive and work.”

    Ask me or any auto expert what's the fastest car you can buy for any given amount, and we could easily cough up several options.

    The TT. Audi's diminutive sports car. Since production began in 1998, the two-door coupe has aged with the pugnacity of a grizzled New Yorker, but not in size. And why would it, as the arrival of the TT RS proved, adding some grit makes for a rather captivating dish. And so you'll excuse us for being puzzled by the Audi TT Offroad concept.
