Sacha Baron Cohen refused to tell his wife Isla Fisher about the dangerous pranks he was filming for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm so she ‘didn’t have to worry’
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm saw its star, Sacha Baron Cohen, explore some unsavoury and dangerous aspects of American.
And Sacha’s wife, actress Isla Fisher, has now revealed the British comedian, 49, kept details of the pranks he was pulling a secret from her during filming.
‘I’m so grateful I didn’t know before, so I didn’t have to worry,’ the Wedding Crashers star, 45, admitted in an interview with Marie Claire Australia.

Sacha was away for 70 days shooting the Amazon Original movie, during which time Isla was in the dark about his exploits.
‘Sacha was very kind in not sharing what he intended to shoot each day,’ she said.
After he was home safely, the Ali G star told his wife of one scene: ‘Oh, I was at a pro-gun rally; everyone was carrying guns.’
The scene in question depicted Sacha – as Borat – leading a racist singalong at a gun rally, before fleeing the event in a bulletproof vest after his real identity was exposed.

‘I’m always surprised that I’m employed, married and have my family – everything else feels like a bonus,’ the mother of three said.
