His fashion shows for his eponymous labels and for Louis Vuitton are the stuff fairytales are made of: carousels, escalators and Kate Moss are often involved.So when we heard the designer was playing the role of a porn baron in the new film "Disconnect," we wondered, how different can making a movie be from creating the vision behind his renowned brands? Jacobs was happy to share the story behind his role in the film (it involves a little-known actress named Winona Ryder), what psychotherapy has taught him about being emotionally fluent and his adventures on My Space. "I met the director, Henry-Alex Rubin, years ago in Paris via a mutual connection, an actress named Winona Ryder.He was shooting a mockumentary around her shoplifting scandal and wanted to shoot in my showroom."What was the difference between creating a fashion show and filming a movie role? I didn't understand 90 percent of what they were saying, so I really felt like I was in a foreign land where I didn't speak the language.

I'm used to the tedious aspects of putting together a fashion show.

I can spend eight hours in a room discussing the width of an elastic on the hem of a skirt.

I'm not used to freezing my ass off in a parking lot while filming with heating pads strapped to my torso.

I couldn't wrap my head around filming one scene over the course of eight hours.

So I guess it's the devil you know versus the devil you don't.""I'm not attached to phones or computers.

I'm with my team so often that other than sending a silly text here or there, I'm not dependent on the internet.

The film deals with the greater problem [concerning the internet], which is people's inability to deal with honest feelings.

The internet is one way that people's problems manifest themselves, similar to a pint of Haagen Daaz for someone with an eating disorder or drugs for an addict.

This is what comes of people not being able to honestly communicate and connect.""I have no advice.
