Sacha Baron Cohen Reveals The FBI Started Following Him While Filming ‘Borat’

The great Sacha Baron Cohen has been busy promoting his latest film The Brothers Grimsby, which is described as a spy action comedy, but Jimmy Kimmel’s audience made it seem more like a sequel to 2 girls 1 cup. If you have no idea what we’re talking about, check out the video at the bottom of this page.

Cohen was on WTF with Marc Maron recently, and he talked about some of the challenges he faced while filming Borat and Bruno. And one of the most intense moments came while filming Borat.

Apparently, people thought he was a terrorist hiding out in an ice cream truck.

“[The FBI] got so many complaints there was a terrorist traveling in an ice cream van. So the FBI got so many complaints that they started compiling a little file on us and eventually they came to visit us at the hotel. I obviously went missing when I heard because they were like ‘FBI’s downstairs. Sacha, disappear.’”

That was probably one of the scariest moments for Cohen and the crew, but the most painful moment for Cohen happened while filming Bruno. Police in Kansas reportedly warned the Bruno crew that Cohen would be arrested should anything happen.

And of course something happened. The cops were called while they were filming and Cohen’s bodyguard told the actor to jump out a window to escape. He followed his bodyguard’s instructions and ended up breaking his heel, which temporarily shutdown production.
