During the interview, Sacha explained the story of Borat, as well as the plot of the new sequel, which has been making headlines for its many dangerous and awkward scenarios.

He also talked about a particularly scary moment while dressed up as Donald Trump at an event for Mike Pence, where he was wanded in by a TSA agent and almost caught.

He also discussed hiding in a bathroom while in costume.

“I would say, Stephen Miller, if you’re watching this, you need more fiber in your diet. It shouldn’t take that long,” he said.

Sacha Baron Cohen recently donated $100,000 to this organization after the movie’s release.

Sacha Baron Cohen Donates $100,000 to 'Borat 2' Babysitter's Community in Oklahoma

Sacha Baron Cohen has made a large donation to the Oklahoma City community of Jeanise Jones, the woman who was Tutar’s babysitter in the new movie Borat 2.

A GoFundMe page was launched for Jones by her pastor after her story went viral. She actually thought the whole situation was real until the movie was released and believed she was participating in a documentary about child brides at the time.

Over $155,000 has been raised for Jones and now the additional $100,000 donation will be distributed to her community by Pastor Derrick Scobey.

“I was blown away but not surprised because I was told about what type of heart this man has,” Scobey told People of the donation. “Maybe it’s a little risqué, some of the things in the movie, but he has a good heart.”

Jones has been busy this week helping people in the community affected by a big storm.

“While all these people around the world are loving how she’s the moral compass of the movie, she’s sitting here serving people in the dark and in the cold,” Scobey said. “This is who we are. This is what we do for our community, and we love our community.”

The entire cast of the movie The Trial of the Chicago 7 will be competing in the Best Supporting Actor category at the Oscars next year.

The movie, which was written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, features 12 actors billed above the title and it’s definitely an ensemble piece. Many expected that Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne would be campaigned as lead actors while the rest of the cast would be in the supporting category.

Now, it’s been confirmed by THR that all actors will be campaigned in the supporting category. Another time that this has happened recently was with the movie Spotlight, which went on to win Best Picture.

The cast of the film includes, in alphabetical order, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Sacha Baron Cohen, Danny Flaherty, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Keaton, Frank Langella, John Caroll Lynch, Eddie Redmayne, Noah Robbins, Mark Rylance, Alex Sharp, and Jeremy Strong.

Many believe that the actors with the best chance at landing a nomination are Abdul-Mateen II, Cohen, and former winner Rylance.

Sacha Baron Cohen Talks Maria Bakalova's Oscars Buzz for 'Borat 2'

Maria Bakalova was introduced to the world with her role as Tutar, the daughter of Borat, in the new movie Borat Subsequent Moviefilm and now she’s getting Oscars buzz!

Sacha Baron Cohen, who played the title character in the new movie, is commenting on the possibility of Maria getting an Oscar nomination and how she’s such a special actress.

“She’s an incredible actor,” Sacha said (via IndieWire). “We interviewed 600 young women from all around the world and she’s hilarious. She is one of the most courageous actors in history. If she doesn’t get nominated for an Oscar then that’s a travesty.”

He added, “She’s hilarious and has the capacity to deliver a scene and make you cry. That’s what finally got her the part. When we did the breakup scene in the movie, I had to stop it because I felt myself getting quite emotional. She’s one of a kind. Imagine coming to America for the first time and you’re playing a role with real people in some terrifying situations. She got through it all. She’s a revelation.”

Trump Revealed His Thoughts on 'Borat 2' & Sacha Baron Cohen Responded

President Donald Trump is one of the main topics of the new movie Borat 2 and he’s sharing his thoughts on the movie’s star Sacha Baron Cohen.

In the film, Sacha‘s iconic character is given the mission of delivering a gift to Trump‘s VP Mike Pence in order to save Kazakhstan from the disgrace it faced from the first Borat movie.

One of the final scenes of the movie finds Borat and his daughter, played by newcomer Maria Bakalova, in a compromising situation with Trump‘s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Trump was asked by reporters on Air Force One if he saw the footage and he said, “I don’t know what happened. But years ago, you know, he [Sacha Baron Cohen] tried to scam me and I was the only one who said no way. That’s a phony guy and I don’t find him funny.”

“To me, he’s a creep,” Trump added, according to Voice of America White House bureau chief Steve Herman.

Sacha retweeted an article about the comments and said, “Donald—I appreciate the free publicity for Borat! I admit, I don’t find you funny either. But yet the whole world laughs at you. I’m always looking for people to play racist buffoons, and you’ll need a job after Jan. 20. Let’s talk!”
