ACTOR Ben Stiller gets all flash as he takes a snap with the world’s longest selfie stick, The Sun reports. The 50-year-old used the 28ft gadget to photograph a host of stars at the premiere of Zoolander 2. The picture, verified by a Guinness adjudicator, captured celebs and cast members from the sequel to 2001’s cult fashion comedy Zoolander.

 They included Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, Penélope Cruz, Justin Theroux, Kristen Wiig, Lara Stone, Myleene Klass, Ben’s wife Christine Taylor and The Force Awakens baddie Adam Driver.

They were on a blue carpet in reference to the “Blue Steel” catwalk pose used by Ben’s model character Derek Zoolander.  He said: “This was a dream of mine. I wanted to appear on the cover of Vogue and break the world selfie stick record.”

It was the last in a series of promotional stunts after Ben and Owen gatecrashed Paris Fashion Week last March. The picture, a nod to US host Ellen DeGeneres’s famous Oscars selfie from 2014, was taken in Leicester Square on Thursday.
