Sacha Baron Cohen caused chaos at the UK premiere of his new film 'Bruno' last night (17.06.09), when he marched into London's Leicester Square with 20 scantily-clad male dancers dressed like members of the Queen's Guard
Sacha Baron Cohen donned tight leather shorts and a bearskin hat for the UK premiere of 'Bruno' last night (17.06.09).
The outrageous comedian marched into London's Leicester Square with a troupe of 20 scantily-clad male dancers dressed as members of the Queen's Guard while Gloria Gaynor's 'I Will Survive' blasted from speakers.
After an hour of prancing and posing, Sacha - who plays gay Austrian fashion reporter Bruno in the mockumentary - addressed the crowd from a white podium, poking fun at action star Arnold Schwarzenegger and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
In a thick and flamboyant Austrian accent, he said: "I'm hoping this will be the biggest movie starring a gay Austrian since 'Terminator 2'. Talking of politicians, Gordon Brown… I mean, what is she all about?
"She is the gayest guy I have ever seen. Gordon, love, you need to take off those high heels and come out of that closet one of these days."
The 37-year-old comic star also teased pop star Madonna and supermodel Naomi Campbell, saying: "To anyone out there considering adopting a black baby like Madonna, don't. They've been in fashion but they are about to be out. I'm going to put mine on eBay.
"And Naomi. It is wonderful that after 20 years of fame in this business she has remained a total b***h."
Sacha's fiancee Isla Fisher - with whom he has an 18-month-old daughter Olive - walked the red carpet alone, showing off her petite frame in a silver mini-dress.
Celebrity chef Nigella Lawson, comedian Mathew Horne and socialite sisters Pixie and Peaches Geldof also attended the premiere.
