Sacha Baron Cohen talks about the length and dangers he faced while filming Borat 2.
Commenting on TIME, the actor and comedian revealed, "Several times in my career I have really feared for my life."
"While making my latest Borat movie, I was performing as the right-wing singer at a gun rights rally in Washington state," wrote Baron Cohen. "When the organizers finally stormed the stage, I hurried to a nearby getaway vehicle. An angry crowd blocked our way and hit the vehicle with their fists."
The screenwriter described "wearing a bulletproof vest" under his coveralls, adding, "It felt inappropriate for some people outside to wield semi-automatic weapons."
"When someone opened the door to pull me out, I used all of my body weight to pull the door shut until our vehicle maneuvered freely," he continued.

He added, "I was fortunate enough to find out in one piece. The next few weeks will determine if America is that lucky."
In a video posted on YouTube, Baron Cohen can be seen as a singer in blue overalls and a red long-sleeved shirt with a straw hat.
The actor could be heard singing lines like, "Obama, what must we do? / Inject him the Wuhan flu."
Earlier this month, the first trailer for Baron Cohen's sequel to his 2006 film debuted.
The sequel, entitled Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm, was filmed secretly in the summer and will premiere on Amazon Prime on October 23.
The film will follow Borat when he returns to America with his daughter to “give her to someone close to the throne” (a White House recording shows that “the throne” is the Oval Office).
In one scene, 48-year-old Cohen disguises himself as Donald Trump with a mask that bears an uncanny resemblance to the President and crashes a speech by Vice President Mike Pence.
Aside from politics, it is clear that Cohen will tackle the current coronavirus pandemic throughout the new film. The movie poster includes several finely placed face masks, and a scene in the trailer shows his character physically battling COVID-19.
Borat: The movie below will begin streaming on Amazon Prime on October 23rd.
