Sacha Baron Cohen’s gay jape leaves US politician fumingApril 18th, 2009 - 3:13 pm ICT by ANI
London, April 18 (ANI): Sacha Baron Cohen has left a US politician fuming after trying to trick him into his “bedroom” for a seduction scene on camera.
Texan congressman Ron Paul revealed he was scheduled for an interview about European finances.
But when the senior Republican arrived, he was taken into a dark room where the actor tried to lure him in a skimpy leather outfit.
The former presidential candidate branded the 37-year-old a “fraud” following the incident.
“I was expecting an interview on Austrian economics. By the time he started pulling his pants down, I was like: ‘What on earth is going on here?’ and I ran out of the room,” the Daily Star quoted him as saying.
Cohen also mocked Madonna’s bid to adopt an African baby in his new movie Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America For The Purpose Of Making Heterosexual Male.
He was later reported to have apologised to the Queen of Pop with a bouquet of flowers to say ‘No hard feelings’. (ANI)
