Stars: They have side hustles like us! During a crazy new interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Sacha Baron Cohen accidentally revealed that he had been “selling” COVID-19 vaccines to fellow celebrities. At this point, the operation has gotten so big that Sacha Baron Cohen’s wife, Isla Fisher, is helping with the distribution, although she is drinking a little more than injecting. Certainly that’s one way to convince your famous friends to award you an Oscar, isn’t it?
To be clear, Sacha Baron Cohen is not Really selling COVID-19 vaccines to celebrities (or not?). On Thursday, the actor and comedian appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to discuss the Golden Globe winner Borat Post Movie, but their question and answer session was quickly interrupted by a series of repeated phone calls. Armed with old-school flip phones, read: burner phones, Cohen answered repeated questions about his stash of AstraZenaca and Pfizer from the likes of Chaz Bono, Tom Cruise, and Kanye West.
Kanye! Me, me, me, “Cohen said as he received a” call “from the rapper.” I can get you Johnson & Johnson … No, do not Dakota and Dawn. The vaccine, what do you mean you only need one? I’ve got you down for six. Oh, sorry, I didn’t know. “
About halfway through his interview with Kimmel, Cohen was so overwhelmed by the calls that his wife Isla Fisher stepped in to help. “Honey! Ruffalo is outside, here’s the cash,” he said, handing her a giant wad of bills. When Cohen grabbed the shots (plus an Oatly oat milk), Fisher swallowed a jar behind him, which looked like worry him rightly. Isla! You look taller than Don Jr. Have you had any vaccinations? “he asked. “How many have you had?”
“Two – I’ve had two!” he said, before revealing that he was actually 15 years old.
“Oh my God!” Kimmel replied. “I think this is illegal, but it also seems like you should focus on your Oscar campaign. You’re nominated for awards, you’re nominated for SAG awards, it seems like you should focus on the Oscars right now. “
Of course, Cohen said, he is focused on the Oscars. “This is my Oscar campaign,” said the Borat star. Jimmy, put it this way. None of the foreign Hollywood news outlets are catching COVID anytime soon. “
At that point, things got worse, but I won’t spoil it for you. Instead, check out Sacha Baron Cohen-Jimmy Kimmel’s wild interview above!
