Lagerfeld is Anti Marriage and Pro Prostitution


Filmmaker Bruce LaBruce interviews fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld in the latest issue of Vice, and BlackBook has found some of the most curious Lagerfeld quotes, including his views on gay marriage, prostitution, and Anna Wintour.

* On his stand against gay marriage: "Yes, I'm against it for a very simple reason: In the '60s they all said we had the right to the difference. And now, suddenly, they want a bourgeois life. ... And I also believe more in the relationship between mother and child than in that between father and child."

* On porn and escorts: "I personally only like high-class escorts. I don't like sleeping with people I really love. I don't want to sleep with them because sex cannot last, but affection can last forever. I think this is healthy. And for the way the rich live, this is possible. But the other world, I think they need porn. I also think it's much more difficult to perform in porn than to fake some emotion on the face as an actor."

* On his relationship with Anna Wintour: "People I'm really friendly with have faxes. Anna Wintour has one. We speak via fax."
