Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest film Bruno will be mocking your favorite drunken AI judge, Paula Abdul. Cohen, in character as Bruno, did a fake interview with Abdul who to this day doesn’t even know she was tricked.
“Paula was totally fooled. She bought into his character and to this day isn’t aware she was fooled,” the insider said. Abdul’s rep had no immediate comment. Universal, which releases the flick July 10, also had no comment. Texas Rep. Ron Paul has already admitted being tricked into a hotel room by Cohen’s character.
When do you think it’ll click that Paula was duped. The opening credits? Half-way through the film? Will she even remember she did this interview? Probably not. She’ll think that they used high tech witchery to transpose her into the film. If you were to ask Paula what she thought of the movie, she’d tell you she was not amused at the liberal use of CGI. This will of course be before she falls asleep standing up.
