British comic Sacha Baron Cohen caused a stir at the Cannes Film Festival in France in the guise of his alter-ego Borat SAGDIYEV, by sporting a giant green g-string. Cohen, in character as the blundering Kazakhstani journalist, bared his buttocks on the beaches in the neon garment, which looped over his shoulders while covering the bare essentials. The cheeky funnyman was in Cannes yesterday (24MAY06) to promote his new movie BORAT.
