Baron Cohen film mocks Madonna
Funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen has taken aim at Madonna and Angelina Jolie in his latest controversial movie.
The star released a trailer on Friday (03Apr09) for forthcoming film Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt.
The movie tells the story of an outrageous gay Austrian fashion correspondent hoping to make it big in Hollywood.
And one scene is sure to infuriate Jolie and Madonna - with Baron Cohen taking a swipe at both stars over their adoption of foreign children.
The actor collects an African baby out of a box on an airport baggage carousel before turning to the camera and saying, "Angelina's got one, Madonna's got one, now Bruno's got one."
Madonna adopted Malawian child David Banda in 2006 while Jolie has three adopted children from varying countries.
Baron Cohen's new film follows 2006 hit Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan and looks set to be just as controversial.
The Borat picture was heavily criticised by officials in Kazakhstan who accused Baron Cohen of portraying the country in a negative light.
The actor and movie bosses were also threatened with legal action from disgruntled members of the public who alleged they were manipulated into participating in the film.
