Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest film ‘Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premier Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan,’ in short Borat 2, was released on Amazon Prime. He appeared on Monday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show to speak about his character the Kazakh television journalist named Borat Sagdiyev in the movie.
One of the things that came to Ellen’s mind when she was watching the movie was the risks that Cohen took in shooting certain scenes because he was undercovered and he interacted with real-life people.
When Ellen stated that she was worried about Cohen’s true identity being revealed and that he was duping people around, Cohen started to tell what happened when he was at an event for Mike Pence.
In that event, Sacha Baron Cohen disguised as Trump attended the Conservative Political Action Conference. Cohen described that the incident scared him a little and he explained how the day started.
In the morning, the prosthetics team transformed him into President Donald Trump with prosthetics, a fat suit, wig, and make-up. When he was passing security, for a moment he had a scare because when the security officer was wanding Cohen, he beeped for several times and he thought his real identity was going to be discovered, but he managed to get in by telling that it was a pacemaker.
Here’s what he stated:
“I was terrified, obviously, the moment they touch my body. It’s a fat suit so I wouldn’t have been allowed in. And they said, ‘What’s that sir? Why is it beeping?’ And I go, it’s a pacemaker.
And then the guard from the TSA carried on wanding me. And then down by my belly, it beeped again. He goes, ‘What’s that?’ And I didn’t know what to say, and he said, ‘Hold on, it’s the wire to the pacemaker, yeah?’ And I go, ‘Yeah, yeah, of course.’ And he let me in.”
