NEW YORK (AP) – Rudy Giuliani is shown with his hand in his pants after flirting with an actress who plays a young woman posing as a television journalist in a scene in Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest mockumentary, a sequel to his hit “Borat” movie.
The scene shot in a New York hotel room in July – which resulted in Giuliani calling the police – includes a moment when Giuliani is seen on a bed with his shirt off and his hand in his pants with the young woman nearby. .
Giuliani went into the hotel room thinking he was being interviewed about the Trump administration’s COVID-19 response. The young woman flirts with him and invites him into the bedroom, which is decorated with hidden cameras.
Giuliani then asks for her phone number and address. He lies down on the bed again and has his hands in his pants.
The hotel room scene ends when Baron Cohen, who was disguised as part of the crew, bursts into the room in a bizarre outfit, screaming that the young woman is 15 years old. Until then, there is no indication that she is a minor. The character, Borat’s daughter, is played by actress Maria Bakalova, who is listed at the age of 24 on the Internet Movie Database website, IMDb.com.
Giuliani made no immediate comment.
The former mayor of New York called the police after that meeting, but there is no indication that an investigation has started. Giuliani spoke to the New York Post’s Page Six column about the incident in July, but didn’t mention the bedroom aspect of the encounter.
New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, who profiled Baron Cohen before the film came out, tweeted about the scene on Wednesday: “It’s even wilder than it sounds. Cringe beyond. “
Dragging people close to President Donald Trump is a central theme of the new ‘Borat’ movie, a sequel to the 2006 mockumentary in which Baron Cohen’s character traveled across the United States, sexist, racist, and anti-Semitic views embraced and similar responses elicited ignorant subjects.
For ‘Borat Subsequent Movie Film: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan’, Baron Cohen returns as his Kazakhstan alter ego in a plot where he tries to give his daughter as a gift to Vice President Mike Pence .
Borat comes closest to the audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where he shouts to Pence that he has brought him a woman. Dressed in a Donald Trump costume and with Borat’s daughter, played by Bakalova, slung over his shoulder, Baron Cohen is quickly escorted outside through security.
That leads to a second plan with Giuliani entering the hotel room scene.
Giuliani finalized his divorce from his 15-year-old wife in December.
Baron Cohen made a history of fooling conservative figures. For his 2018 Showtime series ‘Who Is America’, British comedian had former vice president Dick Cheney draw a waterboarding kit. A sketch with former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore involved the comedian taking a ‘pedophile test’. Moore has sued the meeting.
