“I learned how to hold a camera and which lenses to use,” he says, reclining on a leather sofa in a black cardigan in a Village photo studio. “Then I went out.” His first assignment was a gig any former fireman would love: the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. “I ended up putting on this really stupid disguise: this bad wig and a beret. I put a pillow in my shirt. I stuffed tissues in my mouth.” So a fat, jowly, vaguely French Steve Buscemi slung a camera around his neck and began stalking lingerie models. First, a real paparazzo tour guide took him into the big tent. “And as soon as we stepped inside, I heard somebody go, ‘Does that look like Buscemi? What’s he’s doing here?’ ” he says, shaking his head. The actor had better luck getting into the role outside, where he breathed in the boredom of his brethren. “I got a little window into how early they have to get there, how long they have to wait. So I understand that if a celebrity comes waltzing through and doesn’t stop, you can be like, ‘What the fuck?! Come on—I’ve been waitin’ here … ’ ”
