Sacha Baron Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards featuring “Bruno” star Sacha Baron Cohen landing with his naked buttocks in Eminem’s face was staged and created with Eminem’s consent.

According to Entertainment Weekly the two rehearsed the stunt before the live show, however, the rapper may not have been briefed on just how naked Baron Cohen’s flying ‘Bruno’ would be when he agreed to the stunt.

Head writer Scott Aukerman put the matter to rest by writing on his blog: “They rehearsed it at dress [rehearsal] and yes, it went as far as it did on the live show.”

According to reports in Life&Style magazine though, Eminem was not funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen’s first choice. The comedian is reported to have wanted to land bare-butt first on the face of celebrity heiress Paris Hilton.

On Saturday nights MTV Move Awards Sacha Baron Cohen stole the spotlight when he dropped from the ceiling bare-butt first onto Eminem’s face. The rapper, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, stormed out of the theater apparently enraged and cursing with his entourage following after foisting ‘Bruno’ off his face.

The Grammy and Academy Award winning rapper, record producer and actor released his first album since 2004, Relapse, on May 15, 2009.
