IOL pic feb27 oscars sacha baron cohen Reuters Actor Sacha Baron Cohen arrives in character from his upcoming film The Dictator at the 84th Academy Awards in Hollywood, California.

Sacha Baron Cohen rubbed sunscreen into George Clooney's ex-girlfriend at the Cannes Film Festival.

The British comic dressed as Admiral General Aladeen - the character from his latest movie 'The Dictator' - boarded a yacht off the coast of the South of France with the Italian TV presenter yesterday (16.05.12).

'General Aladeen' and Elisabetta Canalis, who sported a tiny pink bikini, sipped champagne and oiled each other with sunscreen and everything was plain sailing until the 33-year-old beauty pretended to poke fun at his small manhood.

The 40-year-old funnyman stormed off in anger, dragging Elisabetta by her feet, before re-appearing with a bodybag which he then tossed overboard.

'General Aladeen' had already caused chaos on the Cannes Croisette by arriving on a camel.

The 65th Cannes Film Festival kicked off yesterday and has already attracted some of the biggest Hollywood stars including Eva Longoria, Freida Pinto, Bruce Willis, Diane Kruger and Tilda Swinton. - Bang Showbiz
