Aziz Ansari really wants people to stop using the word “foodie” when describing food-lovers like himself.
Joining Vogue for the magazine’s “73 Questions” video segment to promote the second season of his highly-acclaimed Netflix series, “Masters of None”, the 34-year-old actor and comedian shares a series of fun facts, including his distaste for the word foodie, his best pick-up line and his love of Kanye West.
When asked which food trend he hates, Ansari says, “The word foodie. Stop it. People that like food shouldn’t get this weird fetish-y sounding thing. Call the people that don’t care what they eat food bozos.” His best pick-up line? He says, “Devs is going to Whole Foods. Want me to pick you up anything?”
When asked to rank Kanye West’s albums in order from best to worst, he ties “Watch the Throne” and “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” at the top with “Yeezus” and ‘The Life of Pablo” tied shortly after and followed by “Graduation” and “The College Dropout”.
Ansari, who is expected to attend this year’s Met Gala in New York City, also makes a special request for Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour when it comes to his placement near the food. “Anna, please seat me next to the area where they bring out the little pigs in a blanket,” he says.
In high anticipation for one of fashion’s most star-studded nights of the year, the actor adds that his current fashion icon is the mid-20th century Italian actor Marcello Mastroianni, while joking that he wants to revive the “sweatpants with writing on the butt” trend, but with a protest-themed twist.
