Kanye West wants Will Ferrell to play him in biopic

Kanye West wants Will Ferrell to play him in a movie of his life.

The 39-year-old rapper is a huge fan of the 49-year-old actor and even compared himself to one of Will's most famous characters, Buddy the Elf, in the Christmas movie 'Elf'.

In an interview for W magazine's first-ever his-and-hers fashion issue, Kanye said: "He is one of my personal gods. I would like Will Ferrell to play me in 'The Kanye West Story'. Can you make that happen?"

Speaking about his Yeezy fashion label, Kanye compared himself to Buddy and said: "I'm the elf that's Will Ferrell, that's too big for his hands to make the toys.

"Play this s**t back in 10 years - I build things that mean things to people. I make the Christmas presents; number one requested Christmas present of 2015 Christmas, going into 2016, the f****g Yeezy."

Kanye also insisted he is not taken seriously as a designer because he is a musician and he blasted critics of his latest collection.

He said: "Think of how it is now - [Yeezy] is one of the leading trendsetting brands now; like top four trendsetting brands. And, and that's with little to no support on the apparel side. Meaning, I went and did a deal with Adidas and I basically still had to do the apparel in LA and build my own atelier and get consultants and build a team.

"I'm saying that to this date they do not understand who I am. They will not understand until after I'm gone. I am misunderstood and there is no one in fashion that's on my side."

"No one, um - very few people even knew that I have a f****g Ph.D. in art, you know? And not that that would even make the difference, but me saying that makes the difference to the exact people I'm talking to it's, like, shut the f**k up.

"I will f*****g laser you with alien f*****g eyes and explode your f*****g head. Shut the f**k up - try to write a rap. Okay then. I made this f*****g T-shirt, now shut up. And it cost me everything I had and I gave everything I had."
