Bruno’s Cohen Strikes Gay Poses

Bruno's Cohen Strikes Gay Poses

We all saw Sacha Baron Cohen in his Bruno guise descend on the face of Eminem at the MTV Movie Awards. Well, not since Zoolander have we seen a straight actor take so many gay poses. Not only is he on the cover of GQ–with more provocative spreads inside–but he looks quite fetching in a Brit military outfit at the Bruno London opening.

Is Bruno too gay? All too predictably, GLAAD has stepped up to voice concern about the movie’s treatment of gays. Please: the whole point of Cohen’s comedy is to push everyone’s buttons in the most politically incorrect way possible. I howled at the footage I saw at SXSW. But from reports I’m hearing from pals of mine who’ve seen the movie, it does make people squirm in an uncomfortable way. Will folks go see it anyway? Of course. But it could put an R-rated cap on how broadly the movie plays.

UPDATE: DHD and The Wrap both posted similar Bruno stories quoting the same source.
