Promoting his second film, Nocturnal Animals, Tom Ford puts on his director’s hat and connects with WSJ magazine. Missing no words about his vision, Ford exclaims, “I want all of the actors to be beautiful. I’m sorry—it’s a movie. It’s a moo-vie. I don’t want reality.”

Sharing more about the movie, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams, the designer addresses critics. Ford confides, “In some of the meaner reviews, they say it looks like a beauty commercial; it’s too polished; it’s because I’m a fashion designer.”
