Quickies: Deleted “Bruno” Scene Is Uncomfortable & Psychic To Contact Michael Jackson

The above clip is an “exclusive” deleted scene from the “Bruno” DVD. Things get really uncomfortable when baseball legend Pete Rose is forced to sit on a landscaper. [Maxim] — I’m so ashamed to admit I laughed. I had no plans of seeing any of this movie in my lifetime.
It’s no surprise…

Why Are So Many Celebs Doing Interviews In Character?

What’s the deal with actors doing interviews in character? Not that I’m complaining, because I find it generally hilarious, but why are we seeing so much of this lately? A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of seeing Mark-Paul Gosselar reviving the teen-tastic role of Zack Morris on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” Then,…

Why Are Penises Always Funny In Movies?

After seeing “Bruno,” one of my male friends went on a 5-minute rant about how penises in movies are always played for laughs. In his opinion, the nudity law of cinema is that when a woman’s naked, it’s completely serious or titillating, but when a peen pops up on screen, it’s meant to be hilarious.

The Inspiration Board: Bruno

Okay so not everyone loves Bruno (or even likes him), but you have to give him props both for his insane newfound mainstream popularity and willingness to make ridiculously bold fashion choices. He’s inspired us to live in a world of spandex, fur, sequins, and hot pants … all at once. Despite steadfastly refusing to…

How Sacha Baron Cohen Keeps From Getting Sued

On Friday night, I went to see “Bruno.” I laughed. (Hardest at the part where Bruno goes camping with a bunch of rednecks and, as they sit around the campfire, he asks them which “Sex and the City” character they are.) I cried. (When Bruno’s velcro suit caused chaos at a fashion show, and he’…

Barbara Walters Gives “Bruno” Two Enthusiastic Thumbs Down

Barbara Walters is having a very educational week. Sexually, we mean. Last week Margaret Cho visited “The View” and gave Barbara a lesson on the G-spot. Then, over the weekend, Barbara saw “Bruno” and learned more than she cared to about anal and giving oral sex. I saw “Bruno” this weekend as well…

Trailer Park: “Bruno,” “I Love You Beth Cooper,” And “Humpday”

Maybe it’s because I haven’t seen another human being in five days, but I’m really enthusiastically excited about the movies coming out this week. They all share a certain theme, which happens to be my favorite: awkwardness! First,…

We See (Not Just) Chick Flicks: Bruno

The Lowdown: Watching the feature film “Bruno” is somewhat like eating a whole bag of candy corn. There is a sugar rush high and momentary feeling of elation and giddiness, but all too soon you feel sick and crash. The experience is not awful and you come out no worse for the wear, but it&#8217…

Sacha Baron Cohen On The Late Show. Swoon.

Yes, we’ve done a lot of posts about “Bruno” in the past two days. No, we’re not planning on stopping anytime soon. The other night, Sacha Baron Cohen went on “The Late Show With David Letterman” as…(gasp)…himself. He describes getting an interview with an actual terrorist for the movie. Any chance he’ll divorce…

Reactions From Viewers At The Opening Night Of “Bruno”

Sacha Baron Cohen has never been known as one to tread lightly on delicate issues such as race, religion or sexuality, and the newly released “Bruno” proves no exception. Playing Bruno, a dopey gay Austrian fashion commentator and overall clown, Cohen faces (or more accurately flings himself and awkwardly tackles) controversy on all fronts. Knowing…

Bruno Vows To Be Bigger Than Heidi Montag

Sacha Baron Cohen sat down for an interview with Matt Lauer on “The Today Show” this morning, only, as expected, he did it as “Bruno.” Awkwardly hilarious from the get-go.

Who Is The Real Bruno?

In four short days, “Bruno” will be unleashed upon innocent moviegoers in the US. Judging from Sacha Baron Cohen’s nakie GQ cover and increasingly hilarious premiere ensembles, this mockumentary is going to blow “Borat” out of zee vater. But is Sacha Baron Cohen’s most outrageous character yet based on a real-life Bruno? In Austria, people’…

Notes From The Set Of “Bruno”

The “Bruno” producers must have had a long chat with J.K. Rowling. How else could they have possibly guarded the secret perils and dangers faced by a not-terribly-bright gay Austrian fashion commentator? Whatever wizardry was conjured for the keeping of secrets, it worked. No one seemed to know anything about the upcoming movie release of…

Michael Jackson: The Latest News

Michael Jackson‘s autopsy has begun, and TMZ is already speculating that drug use may be at play. They’re saying that family members wanted Michael to head to rehab because of an addiction to morphine and prescription pill. They think a overdose of Demarol may be what lead to his heart failure yesterday. [TMZ]…

Bruno Gives Conan O’Brien The Best Lap Dance Of His Life

Bruno, aka Sacha Baron Cohen, was on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” last night and, as expected, he brought the flaming ridiculousness. Clip above!

Bruno Opens Amsterdam’s First “Pink Light” Brothel

Visiting Amsterdam is a must for many college students hoping to legally smoke weed or patronize a prostitute. But the problem for some looking for good Dutch times is the exclusion of male prostitutes in the red light district. That all changed for a little while on Friday when Bruno, Sacha Baron Cohen’s gay fashio…

Bruno Gets Flack From Gay Rights Groups

Once again Bruno is in the hot seat, and this time we don’t mean Eminem’s face. “Bruno,” one of Sacha Baron Cohen’s many alter-egos, will make his big screen debut on July 10, but the film is already receiving non-fashion related critique. In the film/mockumentary, Cohen (aka Borat and Ali G) plays the-not-the-brightest-bulb-in-the-shed, homosexual Austria…

Quick Pic: Naked Sacha Baron Cohen On The Cover Of GQ

A naked Sacha Baron Cohen? Even as “Bruno,” he’s no Bar Rafaeli on the cover of Esquire, that’s for sure. Or the model Miranda Kerr on the cover of Rolling Stone. Or even a Bruce Willis and Emma Heming in W. [GQ]…

Bruno Graces Cover Of Marie Claire

In a fashion coup only fit for an A-list diva, Bruno (played by Sacha Baron Cohen) lands a cover of British Marie Claire with model Alessandra Ambrosio. In the issue, which hits newsstands this Thursday, Bruno shares a few style words of wisdom from A-Z…

Bruno 69’s Eminem At The MTV Movie Awards

Last night’s MTV Movie Awards were pretty good — host Andy Samberg was delightfully random, “Twilight”‘s Kristen Stewart dropped her award and looked vaguely like she was on something, and Robert Pattinson was predictably hot. But by far the best moment was when Bruno (aka Sasha Baron Cohen) flew over the stage to…
