Sacha Baron Cohen Insults Madonna At Golden Globes
Sacha Baron Cohen made a number of jokes at Sunday’s Golden Globes. The 36-year-old British comedian started off by poking fun at Botox-faced celebrities.
He said, “It’s been a wonderful year for movies, including, of course, Benjamin Button, the story of a man whose face gets younger as he gets older. Uh, which is just like most of the people in this room.” (The camera pans to Button‘s star Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.)
After the crowd burst into laughter, he continued, “It is said that in times of economic hardship, people flock to the cinemas to watch mindless puerile, escapist nonsense, which is great news because I’ve got a movie coming out (see below).”
Sacha then proceeded to take jabs at a few celebs: “But this recession is affecting everyone, even celebrities. Victoria Beckham hasn’t eaten for three weeks. Charlie Sheen has been forced to have sex without paying for it. It’s true. And even Madonna has had to get rid of one of her personal assistants. (pauses) Our thoughts go out to you Guy Ritchie.” (Sandra Bullock shakes her head.)
Ouch!!! Sacha then presented the “Best Motion Picture – Musical Or Comedy” Golden Globe to Vicky Cristina Barcelona. In his upcoming movie, Sacha will play his alter ego Bruno, a flamboyantly gay fashion reporter from Austria.
