SACHA BARON COHEN: SPLIT PERSONALITY
The holidays are here and we feel obligated to warn hosts inviting Sacha Baron Cohen to Hanukkah festivities that the Borat star is very particular. Cohen has a lot to celebrate because an LA judge just refused to halt the DVD release of Borat because of the college boys lawsuit against him. Back when Sasha was better known as Ali G, he was invited to a Jewish holiday meal and the day before the dinner, Cohen interrogated the host about the food. The actor needed to establish that the food would be absolutely kosher and he asked many questions including what kind of plates the edibles would be served on. The host admitted a few of the dishes weren’t strictly kosher and Cohen thanked him and chose to eat elsewhere. It’s hard to believe this is the same guy who wears a day-glo thong.
