Sacha Baron Cohen: I'm 23% gay

2016-02-25 15:01

Los Angeles - Sacha Baron Cohen has quipped that he's "23% gay".

The 44-year-old actor - who is married to Isla Fisher - said in recent interview that his sexuality fluctuates depending on the "situation".

Speaking in an interview for the WTF! podcast, he said: "I'm 23% gay. Straight or gay are silly terms. Everyone is somewhere on the scale. There's a scale. We worked it out, did the calculations. I'm 23% gay. There are times I go down to 17, sometimes I'm 31, depends on the situation. When I was doing Borat and I had the testicles at my chin, I was at 31."

And on a serious note, the comedy star said that it is those who aren't open about their sexual preference that cause problems.

He added: "It's guys struggling with their sexuality who go and beat up gay guys."

Meanwhile, Sacha - who has three children, Olive, eight, Elula, five and 11-month-old Montgomery with Isla - revealed he's made his wife make love to all of his characters from the movies he's starred in.

He previously joked: "She's had to make love to all of them but I think her least favourite was Borat. Probably the best was Bruno because of the personal hygiene. Bruno showered, shaved, waxed."
