Sacha Baron Cohen Fondles Clooney’s Ex for Latest ‘Dictator’ Stunt
(CANNES, France) -- The stunts just never stop with Sacha Baron Cohen. At the Cannes Film Festival Wednesday, he paled around on a yacht with Elisabetta Canalis, the Italian model famous for once dating George Clooney.
Dressed as the star of his new movie, The Dictator, Cohen oiled up Canalis’ legs, showed her what was inside his speedo, and eventually threw her overboard in a body bag. Photos of Canalis lounging at a Cannes hotel after the playdate confirm she was not actually killed and disposed of unceremoniously.
Cohen also arrived at a Cannes press conference for The Dictator on a camel. All of this comes as The Dictator, which opens Wednesday, is getting lukewarm reviews compared to the raves showered on Borat, Cohen’s first big-screen satire.
“What’s shocking this time is how tame Sacha Baron Cohen’s newest wild man is, for all the kerfuffle the comedian can stir up on the promotional trail,” Entertainment Weekly’s Lisa Schwarzbaum said.
