Sacha Baron Cohen Says Borat Broke Up Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock’s Marriage
When two kids fall in love and hit a bump in the road, no one wants to see it all fall apart, but sometimes that’s just the way it goes. In the case of Kid Rock and Pamela Anderson, all it took for their landmark marriage of (checks watch) four months to fall apart was a screening of Borat! Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.
While it had been widely speculated that the iron clad marriage of Baywatch’s Pamela Anderson and fedora enthusiast Kid Rock had been ruined by Borat, Sacha Baron Cohen confirmed it in an interview on The Last laugh, a podcast by The Daily Beast.
As Cohen explained, he texted Anderson after a screening of Borat, and she responded saying they were getting divorced. When Cohen asked why, she said, simply, “The movie.”
“And I thought it was a joke but then a few weeks later they got divorced and they put as a reason for divorce, Borat,” Baron Cohen said on the podcast.
For reference, Cohen’s character falls in love with Pamela Anderson in Borat, travels across the country to meet her, and then attempts to abduct her. The film, known for its absurdity, left a lot of people in the dark going into filming. According to Cohen, Anderson was one of the only ones in on the joke. Even still, the joke apparently didn’t sit well between Anderson and Kid Rock. Strong reaction from a guy who starred in the movie Joe Dirt, but fine.
Cohen also revealed that Anderson chipped her jaw while filming the scene, so the whole thing sounds like a mess. Since the incident, Cohen has gone on to star in Showtime’s Who Is America?, Anderson has become the face of MAC Cosmetics’s MAC AIDS Fund, and Kid Rock wears a fedora to meet Donald Trump at the White House. America, baby.
