When we saw shots of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana making cameos in Nine, the new movie starring Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson and our Dior obsession du jour Marion Cotillard, well we were more than a little excited. And apparently we weren’t the only ones. Stefano Gabbana has revealed that he adores the limelight and his childhood dream was actually to become a film star!
“My dream when I was young was to become a movie actor,” he explains. “I never studied acting, but I did a TV program five years ago.”
In fact, although his “career is as a fashion designer” Stefano has been know to tread the boards in the past, for numerous television adverts for everything from Lancia car company to Cornetto ice cream. Plus he also has a radio programme on Radio DJ Italia. Versatile, non?
So, does he have any plans to put down the scissors and follow his
“Many people ask us to do little parts in movies, and it depends on the time,” Stefano says. “Domenico is not so comfortable because he’s really shy, but I love it. My career is fashion designer. If you want to make something really well, you need to spend a lot of time. I don’t have a lot of time to make movies or act. I would love [to], but it depends. Maybe a famous movie director [will] offer me a really big part. You never know.” We have our fingers crossed for you Stefano!
