It has been announced this weekend that just days after winning his third race of the season in Bahrain, Hamilton has been in Rome doing exactly that on the set of Zoolander 2.
The world champion was pictured sitting next to actress Olivia Munn during a scene which sees Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) strut their stuff on a catwalk in the sequel to the 2001 hit film of the same name.
It is no secret Hamilton has an interest in getting involved in the music industry but this will be his first appearance in film. It is unknown whether Hamilton will have a speaking role.
With a slated February 2016 release date it remains to be seen whether the film-makers can bill Hamilton’s cameo as that of a two- or three-time Formula One world champion.
