Sacha Baron Cohen kills Ali G and Borat
Sacha Baron Cohen admitted on Friday that he will probably never play his two most famous characters again.
Cohen said he was sad to think that Borat and Ali G are dead.
"When I was being Ali G and Borat I was in character sometimes 14 hours a day and I came to love them, so admitting I am never going to play them again is quite a sad thing," he said. "It is like saying goodbye to a loved one. It is hard, and the problem with success, although it's fantastic, is that every new person who sees the Borat movie is one less person I 'get' with Borat again, so it's a kind of self-defeating form, really.
"It's upsetting, but the success has been great and better than anything I could have dreamed of."
Ali G is Cohen's wannabe-rapper character who humiliates those who he interviews. Borat is the story of an anti-Semitic, homophobic reporter from Kazakhstan who comes to America to learn more about the culture.
