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, who played the title character in the new movie, is commenting on the possibility of Maria getting an Oscar nomination and how she’s such a special actress.

“She’s an incredible actor,” Sacha said (via IndieWire). “We interviewed 600 young women from all around the world and she’s hilarious. She is one of the most courageous actors in history. If she doesn’t get nominated for an Oscar then that’s a travesty.”

He added, “She’s hilarious and has the capacity to deliver a scene and make you cry. That’s what finally got her the part. When we did the breakup scene in the movie, I had to stop it because I felt myself getting quite emotional. She’s one of a kind.

Sacha Baron Cohen Makes Video as Borat to 'Defend' Rudy Giuliani After Scene in 'Borat 2'

Sacha Baron Cohen, while dressed up as his iconic character Borat, is speaking out in response to the controversy surrounding the Rudy Giuliani scene in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

Giuliani, who is the former mayor of New York City and currently is President Trump‘s personal attorney, is involved in a scene with 24-year-old actress Maria Bakalova, who plays Borat’s 15-year-old daughter.

The daughter poses as a journalist interviewing Giuliani and invites him to a hotel room for a drink and tries to take his microphone off. He leans back on a bed and reached his hand into his pants and then Borat runs into the room and says, “She’s 15. She’s too old for you.”

Giuliani said this week, “The Borat video is a complete fabrication. I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment. At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar.”

In the new video, Borat “defends” Giuliani.
