Several reports have surfaced that indicate The Dictator star, Sacha Baron Cohen, is in danger of being deported. According to Sunday Express Cohen, currently live in LA with wife Isla Fisher and the couples two daughters, allegedly has outstanding arrest warrants in Kansas and Arizona.
Apparently he received the warrants after shooting stunts for his earlier films Bruno and Borat. Now Cohen has spoken about the rumors.
Apparently Cohen told the Sunday Express, “There are towns in certain states that I can’t shoot in. If I get arrested my visa could be taken away.”
He then recalled a situation where he narrowly escaped arrest,”The manager called the police and we knew we had about five minutes before the police turned up and I would be arrested.”
“My English bodyguard yelled ‘Everyone out’, as we had an escape car waiting 14 stories down. So we get to a window and there’s an old rickety fire escape. We run down it and get to the second floor, and it doesn’t reach down to the floor. So I jumped wearing these high heels while attached to my friend, broke my heel and got into the car and we left the state,” The 40-year-old added.
Now TMZ is reporting that Cohen is adamant he is not a wanted man, and doesn’t face deportation. So which is it?
TMZ claims the actors representation calls the article “total BS” and claims the reports about the arrest warrants are “false.”
Cohen is set to star in Tom Hooper’s upcoming musical drama Les Misérables which will premiere later this year.
