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
