Borat's Maria Bakalova Reveals Her Opinion Of That Controversial Rudy Giuliani Scene

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm breakout star Maria Bakalova is speaking out about that infamous scene.

The 24-year-old actress plays Borat’s (Sacha Baron Cohen) 15-year-old daughter, Tutar, and she winds up interviewing the former New York City major and current Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

During the infamous scene, he asks for her name and address, and the camera captures Maria reaching into his shirt to retrieve his microphone as he gives her a pat on the back. When she turns away, Rudy lies down on the bed and reaches into his pants.

“Sacha jumped into the room quickly, because he’s been worried about me,” the 24-year-old Bulgarian actress told the New York Times. “So, if he were late, I don’t know how things were going to go. But he came just in time.”

She added, “I saw everything that you saw. If you saw the movie, that’s our message. We want everybody to see the movie and judge for themselves.”

“Yeah. I was nervous,” she continued. “My heart was racing. But Sacha was like, you should be nervous in this situation. So use your nerves. Convert them and accept them and they’re going to help you through everything.”

“I was kind of scared that something would happen. But fortunately, we escaped,” Maria added. “We’d been talking a lot about different scenarios. How should I act, this way or this way? What should I do? What is smarter? But in all of the scenarios, I was confident that Sacha will save me and he will save the scene, so it’s not going to be a disaster. He’s my guardian angel.”

Sacha Baron Cohen Donates $100,000 to 'Borat 2' Babysitter's Community in Oklahoma

Sacha Baron Cohen has made a large donation to the Oklahoma City community of Jeanise Jones, the woman who was Tutar’s babysitter in the new movie Borat 2.

A GoFundMe page was launched for Jones by her pastor after her story went viral. She actually thought the whole situation was real until the movie was released and believed she was participating in a documentary about child brides at the time.

Over $155,000 has been raised for Jones and now the additional $100,000 donation will be distributed to her community by Pastor Derrick Scobey.

“I was blown away but not surprised because I was told about what type of heart this man has,” Scobey told People of the donation. “Maybe it’s a little risqué, some of the things in the movie, but he has a good heart.”

Jones has been busy this week helping people in the community affected by a big storm.

“While all these people around the world are loving how she’s the moral compass of the movie, she’s sitting here serving people in the dark and in the cold,” Scobey said. “This is who we are. This is what we do for our community, and we love our community.”

Trump Revealed His Thoughts on 'Borat 2' & Sacha Baron Cohen Responded

In the film, Sacha‘s iconic character is given the mission of delivering a gift to Trump‘s VP Mike Pence in order to save Kazakhstan from the disgrace it faced from the first Borat movie.

One of the final scenes of the movie finds Borat and his daughter, played by newcomer Maria Bakalova, in a compromising situation with Trump‘s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Trump was asked by reporters on Air Force One if he saw the footage and he said, “I don’t know what happened. But years ago, you know, he [Sacha Baron Cohen] tried to scam me and I was the only one who said no way. That’s a phony guy and I don’t find him funny.”

“To me, he’s a creep,” Trump added, according to Voice of America White House bureau chief Steve Herman.

Sacha retweeted an article about the comments and said, “Donald—I appreciate the free publicity for Borat! I admit, I don’t find you funny either. But yet the whole world laughs at you. I’m always looking for people to play racist buffoons, and you’ll need a job after Jan. 20. Let’s talk!”
