Sacha Baron-Cohen Humiliates Wife With Insult to Jack Nicholson’s Big-Bosomed Mother
This is the problem with marrying Borat.
Isla Fisher is married to Sacha Baron-Cohen, and the comedian is no different in real life than he is on screen. "I cannot tell you how embarrassing he is in social situations," Isla told the Daily Mail. "To him, there’s no difference between the awkward gaffes he deliberately makes as a comic, and the terrible faux pas he innocently commits as my husband."
She shared a bunch of celeb run-ins, including one really embarrassing one with Jack Nicholson. They were at a screening for a Jack Black movie, and a buxom woman made a long speech, followed by Jack's short talk. After the film, Isla said, Sacha told Jack, "Why did you make such a short speech? You should have shut up the woman with the big bosoms and said more yourself." Jack responded, through gritted teeth, "That was my mother."
Isla said even that didn't shut up her hubby. "He told Jack: 'Well, at least your mother has a fabulous bosom.' And he turned to me and said: 'You’ve always wanted larger breasts, haven’t you, Isla?'” Unbelievable! "I wanted the floor to swallow me up," Isla said. "I would like to think Sacha is putting in rehearsal time for all those hilarious gaffes his characters make in movies. But I’m by no means certain that’s why he does it. I don’t think he can help himself!"
Would you be able to stand that kind of thing for the rest of your life?
