Sacha Baron Cohen Embarrasses Isla Fisher

Sacha Baron Cohen may be hilarious on-screen as the too-honest Borat or the Dictator, but wife Isla Fisher doesn’t find it quite as amusing off-screen. Like, in real life.

“I cannot tell you how embarrassing he is in social situations. To him, there’s no difference between the awkward gaffes he deliberately makes as a comic, and the terrible faux pas he innocently commits as my husband.”

Explaining she and Sacha had gone to a movie screening, which saw a curvy woman make a long speech before Jack made a shorter address, she continued: “After the film, Sacha said to Jack, ‘Why did you have to make such a short speech? You should have shut up the woman with the big bosoms and said more yourself.’ Jack said through gritted teeth, ‘That was my mother.’

“Although even that didn’t silence Sacha. He told Jack,’ Well at least your mother has a fabulous bosom.’ And he turned to me and said, ‘You’ve always wanted larger breasts, haven’t you Isla?’ I wanted the floor to swallow me up.”

OMG! I guess Isla did want the floor to swallow her up! It sounds like Sacha can be challenging to live with, too.

“Sacha does fully embrace the people he plays and you don’t know the half of it when he comes to getting into character. I’ve lived with Borat’s handlebar moustache, Bruno’s Justin Bieber flick and The Dictator’s accusing finger. At the moment, I’m having it easy – Sacha is writing so he isn’t in character.”

Oy vey!

    Who’s Jack, indeed!? Talented Isla Fisher seems like a saint to put up with her hubbie’s varied fancies, imo – never met them of course.
