Karl Lagerfeld Doesn't Like Massages

Karl Lagerfeld Explains Why He "Doesn't Believe in Massage"


Because he works so tirelessly, it would be natural to think of Karl Lagerfeld as someone who might indulge in a relaxing massage every now and then — but it would also be wrong.

Lagerfeld attended the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala in Cannes last week, where one of the lots auctioned off was a massage from supermodel Heidi Klum. But Lagerfeld said that it doesn't matter who's giving the massage — "nobody" is allowed to put their hands on him.

"I hate massage and I don't believe in massage. I hate to be touched," he said, adding that he also wouldn't give anyone a massage himself. "I'm not John Travolta."

But even if Lagerfeld did like a little shiatsu here and there, it's a good thing he didn't bid on Klum's massage session. The model admitted that she's not a good masseuse. "And my nails are really long, so it's going to hurt," Klum said.
