World News – GB – Sacha Baron Cohen reveals how he sneaked into Pence speech as Trump


Sacha Baron Cohen detailed how he managed to squeeze in a speech given by Mike Pence while dressed as Donald Trump

Amazon Prime Video comedian Borat’s next sequel, due out later this month, features a scene where he blocks the Conservative Political Action Conference, filmed earlier this year

The moment is also shown in the trailer for the new film, titled Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, as Cohen bursts in holding a woman on his shoulders as the US Vice President addresses a crowd

Cohen unsurprisingly ran into trouble beforehand, with the star reminding the New York Times that he wondered « how do I get in and how do I get out? » after realizing that security was there to « check everyone’s body »

« Keep in mind I spent five hours doing makeup that morning with the prosthetic team that changed my face to Trump’s, » he noted

“This big suit is huge,” Cohen continued, “It’s a big 56 inch suit to turn my height into Trump because we felt it was the most realistic »

The actor then had problems when he beeped, claiming it was because of a defibrillator

Cohen added, « Then I ended up hiding in the bathroom, listening to conservative men go to the bathroom for five hours until I burst into the room. We were surrounded by wards secrets and police and internal security « 

The comedian also opened up about how lucky he was to ‘get away with it in one piece’ after crushing a gun rights rally for the film

Elsewhere in his interview with the New York Times, Cohen called Trump an « open racist » whose behavior encouraged others to expose these « inner prejudices »

Recalling the differences between making the first Borat film 15 years ago and today, the actor said: “In 2005, it took a character like Borat, misogynist, racist, anti-Semite to get people to reveal their inner prejudices

« Now these inner prejudices are evident Racists are proud to be racists, » he added, claiming that Trump was « an open racist, an open fascist » who « allows the rest of society to also change his dialogue «
