Who is Sacha Baron Cohen aka Borat/Ali G/Bruno? Is the comedian closer to his Ali G character, or is he more like Borat from Kazakhstan? Or maybe, Bruno, his latest character, is he real man behind the man…well, you get our thrust.

Ask Men has discovered five things we bet you don’t know about Sacha Baron Cohen.

1- Sacha Baron Cohen used to be an actual male model

Behind the Borat mustache, Ali G do-rag and nude ass of Bruno, is an actual good-looking man. Before becoming a comedian, Cohen worked as a male fashion model and he appeared in a number of fashion magazines. His slim, 6-foot-3 figure does make him perfect for that world. Reportedly, the stint inspired Bruno. Just how much nude model ass did he see before he cracked into the character? We wonder if we'd really like to know the answer to that.

2- Sacha Baron Cohen's appearance at the 2006 MTV Movie Awards was later cut

As Borat, he greeted the MTV audience with: “Good evening, gentlemen and prostitutes.” While he was supposed to be introducing Gnarls Barkley's performance of “Crazy” (with Chewbacca on drums), he took a moment to slam Jessica Simpson’s camel toe. He said that he liked her mouth and could see it clearly through her denim pants. While it aired once, MTV cut it from subsequent rebroadcasts.
