He may be married to our own Isla Fisher, and have three gorgeous kids (Olive, 9; Elula, 5; and Montgomery, 1) – but Sacha Baron Cohen has revealed that he is actually 23 per cent gay.
According to Cohen, all men have “homosexual leanings” and have to work out what their percentage is.
“Everyone is somewhere on the scale. I’m 23 per cent gay. I’ve worked it out, did the calculations.
“There are times I go to 17 — sometimes I’m 31. Depends on the situation. When I was doing Borat and I had the testicles at my chin I was at 31.”
Cohen is known for creating one of the most memorable gay characters in Bruno, his second big character after Borat, who people described as “fearless”, when referencing Cohen’s portrayal.
The 44-year-old also stated that studies showed most homophobic males were attracted to men.
He said: “It’s guys struggling with their sexuality who go and beat up gay guys.”
