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. Keep reading »

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! Keep reading »
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 fashion reporter character alter ego, opened the first “pink light” brothel in Amsterdam ahead of the Dutch premiere of “Bruno.” “For too long, guys coming to Amsterdam from around the world have been forced to have sex with women,” Cohen said. “It gives me great pleasure to declare Amsterdam’s pink light district officially open for business.” Then, a dozen men wearing thongs stepped up to the windows of a three-story brothel. However, the men went behind the curtain once again, only to be replaced by the real red light prostitutes the moment Cohen drove away from the brothel. I guess Amsterdam will never provide guy-on-guy services under red lights. [Reuters] Keep reading »
Sometimes the universe works in mysterious ways. It gives, it takes, and everything levels out somehow. For example, Courtney Love goes on Twitter. Then Ashton Kutcher. Then Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson. And we ask ourselves: Why are we reading this thing again?
Now, Bruno, Sacha Baron Cohen’s fashion reporter character from “Bruno,” which debuts July 10, has started tweeting. Suddenly, we can bear to read TweetDeck again.
A few of his tweets really aren’t printable on a blog our moms read. But ze rest are just brilliant … Keep reading »
As much as we love fashion, we also think it’s kind of ridiculous how seriously some people take a bunch of clothes and shoes. That’s why we love Bruno more. Bruno is one of Sacha Baron Cohen’s most famous characters, after Ali G and Borat, of course. The actor/comedian is in the midst of filming the “Bruno” feature length movie and made a, uh, rather memorable appearance at the Prada show at Milan’s Fashion Week. Fierce. (Okay, officially retiring that word now.)

We loved Sweeney Todd: the costumes were amazing, the art direction was impeccable, Helena Bonham Carter made up for her home-wrecking past, and Johnny Depp stole our bloody hearts — oh, and did we mention that Sacha Baron Cohen, who played Signor Adolfo Pirelli in the film, made us gasp? Sure, he was the film’s comedic cornerstone, but what really left our mouths agape was the impression his rather tight bodysuit made — was that thing padded or is it true what they say about exceptionally tall men with huge feet? Luckily, writer Kathleen Tracy, who’s penned the Cohen biography Sacha Baron Cohen: From Cambridge to Kazakhstan, answered the question for us. It seems Cohen did get a little help in the package department and that the additional, err, girth, was, in fact, his own creative touch. But still, don’t assume that Cohen doesn’t leave an impression on his own. Just ask his Borat co-star Ken Davitian. It seems that during the film’s infamous nude-wrestling scene, “the apparent adrenaline rush to survive under Davitian’s ample weight caused an awkward surge of blood toward one of Cohen’s extremities.” That explains why Cohen got a forgiving fig leaf covering his nether-regions, while Davitian did not. We’ll be the first to say we are totally disappointed. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
