Cohen: "Borat Left Me Knackered "
And that grey suit got pretty pungent too by all accounts...
It's been a world wide smash and cracked box office records, but actor Sacha Baron Cohen says he's pleased to have put Borat to rest for a while.
"It was exhausting," said the star, who also admits he didn't wash his trademark suit or use deodorant so as to add to the authenticty of his Kazakhstani alter ego.
"I had to be that way all day and all night, because even if the tiniest detail had gone awry, it could've made (the people in the film) suspicious. I mean, even if I went to the bathroom, I had to make sure I went to the bathroom as Borat."
The London-born actor also says he's annoyed about being threatened with legal action by some of the members of the public who appear in the film claiming they were duped.
"This wasn't Candid Camera. There were two large cameras in the room," he said. I don't buy the argument that: 'Oh, I wouldn't have acted so racist or anti-Semitic if I'd known this film was being shown in America.' That's no excuse."
Rumours of a follow up to 'Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan' have yet to be confirmed by Cohen.
