Joe attended the launch of the Marquee – The Star in Sydney, Australia on March 30, 2012. Joe talks about acting and the Jonas Brothers.
“Hopefully, yeah! I love being able to act and I try to do as much as I can. So if the right role came around, I’m sure I’d go for it!”
“Ah definitely! We’re in the studio right now writing another record.. Hopefully we’ll come back to Australia and do a tour!”
Joe Jonas hits up the opening of Marquee at The Star nightclub on Friday night (March 30) in Sydney, Australia.
The 22-year-old musician joined pals Kellan Lutz, Nick Lachey and Ashlee Simpson on the purple carpet for opening night.
The new 20,000 square foot nightclub occupies the entire top tier of The Star Casino’s new Pirrama Road harbour side entrance and the main room hosts a 30-foot projection stage with an LED DJ booth and two funky dance floors, while another section entitled ‘Boom Box’ has an outdoor patio and DJ booth.
Earlier in the week, Joe was spotted sight seeing around the Aussie capital, hitting up the Sydney Opera House and other notable landmarks.

Shenae Grimes and Joe Jonas pose together on the carpet at the 2012 Jeffrey Fashion Cares held at the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier in New York City on Monday night (March 26).
The Jeffrey Fashion Cares event featured a “dazzling evening of cocktails, a silent auction, and haute couture on the runway.” The show benefited four of the most worthy non-profit organizations that improve the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS and members of the LGBTQ community.
Joe, 22, tweeted, “Tonight #JeffreyCares and so do I. I support @fashioncaresny and you should too!”
It’s that lovely time of the year again when a boatload (literally) of assorted well-heeled celebs, models, designers and scenesters get together to channel fashion and philanthropy at the star-studded Jeffrey Fashion Cares event on the USS Intrepid. The annual fundraiser, which benefits a number of organizations that support those living with HIV/AIDS and members of the LGBTQ community, is always a high-spirited rager that features a silent auction full of drool-worthy, luxury goods and services, plus an equally drool-worthy runway show packed with gorgeous male models in various stages of designer dress and, better yet, undress. The benefit was decidedly star-studded this year, starting with Honorary Chairwoman Chloe Sevigny on hand to support her childhood friend Terence Mack, the recipient of the first annual Jeffrey Fashion Cares Community Leadership Award.
“[Terence] called me and he said there’s this great event, Jeffrey Cares and we’d love you to become a part of it,” the Proenza Schouler-clad actress told us. “I did some research and it seemed like a really amazing event. And I was like, I’ll lend my name and help in any way to raise awareness about these different organizations–I was happy to come out.”
As a recent visitor to Occupy Wall Street, Sevigny knows her way around community causes. “I marched for Trayvon [Martin],” she stated. “Million Hoodie March. But I didn’t wear a hoodie. I didn’t know you were supposed to.”
Next up: A power clique of models, including recent Sports Illustrated cover girl Kate Upton, Jessica White, Victoria’s Secret Angel/Adam Levine-girlfriend Anna Vyalitsyna, Jessica Stam and Irina Shayk. As some of these lovely ladies are used to walking the runway or posing in minimal clothing we were wondering if they had any pointers for the 40-odd male models who were about to strut the catwalk in their undies in the name of a good cause.
“Well you know I’m a model and I know how they feel and I’m sure they’ve been working out every day,” Irina Shayk offered. “It’s such a great cause that it doesn’t matter how it’s going to look. They’re going to look like heroes because they’re supporting this amazing foundation.”
And then, amidst all the frenzy surrounding swimsuit and lingerie models, another catwalker quietly photo-bombed the red carpet — totally working it for the paps, who didn’t really seem to understand the gravity of the situation. That’s when we realized: OMG, IT’S ANDREJ PEJIC. How could he not have been on the tip sheet?!
“I’m sitting front row supporting the cause that Jeffrey is also supporting, and yeah,” he said, “watching a show.”
Uh huh. Side-note because we know you want to know: As to his upcoming Jean Paul Gaultier campaign, Pejic says to “expect sex” and he actually doesn’t have an official movie role coming up. Yet.
“At the moment I’ve had a lot of offers, but I haven’t chosen anything concrete yet,” he admitted. “I’m just waiting for the right role. I don’t think I could do any role. I think it has to be something that reflects me in some way.”
Even serial starlet dater Joe Jonas dropped by to support the cause. His recent beachside frolic with a bunch of Victoria’s Secret models in Miami and last year’s rumored romance with Karlie Kloss give him some fashion street cred. We asked him what he’s learned sartorially from the catwalkers that he’s, uh, spent time with.
“I think it’s encouraging to see that young women can still dress up and not feel like they have to be all hipstered out when they go to a club or go out at night,” the middle Jo Bro reflected. “They really can dress up nice and beautiful. It’s really sweet.”
As for womenswear designers that really get his attention?
“I love Jason Wu,” he said. “I think he’s an incredible designer. Marc Jacobs is amazing. Jason Wu is a friend and I think he’s just done an amazing job for women.”
As the camera crews were nearly all packed up and the press people were about to call it a day, a sprightly Olivier Theyskens-—in velvet Doc Martens, a thick cable knit sweater and a weathered leather jacket–made it into the event. We couldn’t help but point out out that he missed the paparazzi.
“Oh they’re gone, they’re drinking!” he joked. “That’s okay. I could not be here earlier. But I came for Jeffrey, not for doing a picture.”
With younger brother Nick currently on Broadway, Joe Jonas is also venturing out on his own. “I love to just bike-ride everywhere,” he said last night at the Jeffrey Fashion Cares benefit at the Intrepid Air and Space Museum. Chief among his favorite stops? “Brooklyn has been really cool, to be able to see some of the street art and work that people have done,” much of which has been documented on his Twitter account through Instagram. But Jonas doesn’t want you to think of him as just another softie, celebrity-dilettante biker. The boy-bander says he gets his cues from the most fearless pedalers of all, the city’s bike messengers. “You watch [them] and you learn their ways and how they move around, and then you’re all right.”
Who doesn’t love a runway filled with sexy men in swimwear? The fashion glitterati, including hostess Chloe Sevigny, former PAPER cover boy Joe Jonas, Joseph Altuzarra and Vogue‘s Lynn Yaeger, turned out last night at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum to celebrate Jeffrey Fashion Cares 2012. The annual men’s fashion show benefits a variety of worthy gay charities and was founded by Jeffrey Kalinsky, owner of the super-chic Meatpacking district fashion emporium, Jeffrey. Check out these photos by Billy Farrell Agency from last night’s festivities.
