Life Story of Sacha Baron Cohen

British actor and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen was born in Hammersmith, London. He is the son of Daniella (Weiser), a movement instructor, and Gerald Baron Cohen, a clothing store owner. His father, born in England and raised in Wales, was of Eastern European Jewish descent, while his mother was born in Israel, to German Jewish parents. He was educated at a private school, Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School in Hertfordshire, and went on to read History at Christ's College, Cambridge. Baron Cohen had an interest in performing from an early age, forming a breakdancing group as a teenager and acting in amateur plays with a Jewish youth group. While at university he joined the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club, and took part in such plays as "Cyrano de Bergerac" and "Fiddler on the Roof".

Upon leaving University, Baron Cohen briefly worked as a model, before moving on to work as a host on a satellite TV station. In 1995, Channel 4 put out an open call for new presenters, and Baron Cohen sent in a tape featuring himself in character as an Albania TV reporter (an early prototype for Borat). He was hired and worked on various 'youth TV' projects before, in 1998,...

Sacha Baron Cohen and Anna Faris in Der Diktator (2012)

He plays three principal characters on Da Ali G Show (2003). The title character is Ali G, a lower-class white male who acts like a Jamaican Londoner and enrages his politically active and powerful guests with stupid questions. Another one is the Kazakhstani TV reporter Borat, who naïvely searches for porn and outlets for his scatological, accidental humor and anti-Semitism. The last one is the superficial Austrian fashion expert Brüno, who often talks up heartless fashionistas and makes macho men uncomfortable with his blatant homosexuality.

Appears on talk shows in character; he has rarely appeared as his real self. Nevertheless, he did appear as himself on the Golden Globe Awards show in 2007, as well as on the NPR radio talk show "Fresh Air" with Terry Gross. He was also asked to appear in character (as Borat) at the Oscars, but refused and went as himself.

For Borat, Sacha takes about 6 weeks to grow body, head, and facial hair. For Ali G., the facial hair takes about 4 weeks to grow. When preparing for Brüno, he shaves all of his hair (including body hair), and works out and cleans his body vigorously.

His paternal grandparents, Morris Cohen and Miriam Nichelby, were from Eastern European Jewish families (from Belarus and Poland) that moved to Wales and England. His maternal grandparents, Hans Weiser and Leisel Levi, were both German Jews.

Sacha Baron Cohen in Ali G in da House (2002)

In 2010, it was announced that Baron Cohen was considering starring as singer Freddie Mercury (to whom he bears a resemblance) in a biopic about the late Queen frontman. Baron Cohen was actively involved in trying to get the movie off the ground, even consulting major directors like David Fincher and Tom Hooper, but in 2013, he pulled out and to date (2017), the film still hasn't been made. Queen guitarist Brian May said it was because Baron Cohen's "presence in the movie would be very distracting," doubting that the larger-than-life actor could disappear into the role. In 2016, Baron Cohen gave his side of the story: He left because the surviving members of Queen wanted the movie to be a tame biopic about the entire band; he wanted it to be purely a Freddie Mercury movie, one that included the singer's rock 'n' roll exploits.

Sacha Baron Cohen in Ali G in da House (2002)

When questioned whether he would make another movie based on two of his most famous characters, Borat and Bruno, Baron Cohen said he fears he's too recognizable, and the world too connected and aware, for him to pull off a movie like Borat or Bruno again. There's also the matter of the inherent danger in making those kinds of movies. He's got a family to support, and his wife, Isla Fisher, says she was constantly worried that his actions would get him arrested or sued. Cohen recounted an incident while filming Bruno in Kansas when he was appeared on the show 'WTF with Marc Maron' - he had to make a quick exit when a hotel manager called the cops when he and the actor playing his assistant Gustaf Hammarsten were found "chained to each other in this S&M crazy gear." Baron Cohen and Hammarsten had to jump off of a fire escape to avoid capture.

Sacha Baron Cohen in Ali G in da House (2002)

When Baron Cohen made a surprise appearance as Ali G at the 2016 Academy Awards (it was truly a surprise-show producers had told him not to do it), his wife, Isla Fisher had to be complicit in the prank, and smuggled the Ali G costume into the awards ceremony under her dress. She then had to stand outside a door backstage at the Oscars while Baron Cohen changed inside and producers kept knocking to see what he was up to. "I had to lie to everyone, which made me feel really guilty," Fisher said on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Afterward Fisher said she "went straight to the bar, I'm not gonna lie.".
