Sacha Baron Cohen says he spent ‘five hours hiding in the men’s bathroom’ at CPAC ahead of Donald Trump parody scene in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

Sacha Baron Cohen details to Ellen on Monday the great lengths he went to in making his latest motion picture, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

In the film, Cohen, 49, reprised his role of Kazakh reporter Borat Sagdiyev from his 2006 hit Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan – with the new mission at hand being offering his daughter to Vice President Mike Pence.

One standout sequence in the film took place at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference this past February in Maryland. In the film, Cohen donned a Donald Trump disguise and ran into the hall, making a scene.

Cohen said he donned a fat suit and spent ‘five hours hiding in the men’s bathroom in CPAC listening to conservative men go to the toilet’ prior to making his entrance into the main hall, as seen in the film.

Referencing the controversial Trump administration adviser, he joked, ‘I would say Stephen Miller, if you’re watching this, you need more fiber in your diet – it shouldn’t take that long!’

Cohen said he woke up at 1 a.m. that day and was transformed by prosthetics team to resemble the 45th president.

Cohen said he was wary as he tried to make his way through CPAC security and TSA authorities without revealing his identity, which would have ensured the scene wouldn’t happen.

‘I was terrified, obviously, the moment they touch my body; it’s a fat suit, so I wouldn’t have been allowed in,’ he said.

When beeping went off as he made his way through as he was scanned with a wand, he told security he had a pacemaker device, providing an excuse.

‘He said, “Well, what’s that?”‘ he said. ‘And I didn’t know what to say, and he said, “Hold on, it’s the wire to the pacemaker, yeah?” And I go, “Yeah, yeah, of course.” And he let me in.’

Show business: Cohen said he woke up at 1 a.m. that day and was transformed by prosthetics team to resemble the 45th president.

In reaction to the film, the president said of Cohen, ‘I don’t find him funny – to me, he’s a creep.’

He referenced a past run-in they had in 2003 when he sought to pitch Trump on an absurd product while in the persona of Ali G on Da Ali G Show.

‘But, you know, years ago he tried to scam me,’ he said, ‘and I was the only one that said, “No way. This guy is a phony guy.”‘

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm can be seen on Amazon.
