Lindsay Lohan is free and clear now that Elle magazine won’t hold the starlet responsible for the $500,000 worth of Dior jewelry that went missing during a June 6 photo shoot in London. Elle’s spokesperson said: “Elle has no reason to believe that Lindsay Lohan was in any way responsible and has no further comment to make.” The starlet herself is irate at having been blamed for the heist. “Lindsay thinks it’s a ridiculous story and is happy that Elle is standing behind her,” says a pal, “but she’s really sick of getting blamed for everything bad that happens.”
Sasha Baron Cohen marched into the premiere of his new movie “Bruno” in a pair of teeny leather hot pants. Not many men could carry off this look considering the hot pants are skin tight and must have required a lot of waxing on his part. Cohen was joined by his gorgeous fiancée, Isla Fisher, who wore a strapless grey minidress with a bold dash of red lips.
In his usual outrageous style, Cohen arrived in character as Bruno, a gay Austrian fashion reporter. In addition to the hot pants, Bruno sported a sleeveless red jacket and a bearskin hat as he marched into the premiere with Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” blasting from the speakers. Accompanied by a team of dancers dressed in the same outfit he addressed the crowd at the podium saying: ‘What’s up London. The Austrians have finally invaded. Let’s hear it for my soldier boys.’
There has been huge anticipation over the Bruno movie, which is Baron Cohen’s follow-up to the smash hit Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. The film has already caused controversy, with the Gay Rights Group accusing Baron Cohen of promoting homophobia and a pending lawsuit in which a California woman sued the comedian, claiming he left her severely injured while making the film. In addition, back in April, Texas congressman Ron Paul accused him of fraud, after being unwittingly tricked into a hotel room with Bruno. He claimed he was in a studio for an interview about Austrian economics when he was told the interview would take place in a back room. ‘By the time he (Cohen) started pulling his pants down, I was like what on earth is going on here and I ran out of the room,’ he said. I’ve heard that the movie is different from “Borat” but equally as funny. I am sure we’ll see block-long lines waiting to get into theaters when Bruno hits movie theaters on July 10.
