Favorite Quotes from Sacha Baron Cohen

“I saw some amazing, beautiful, invigorating parts of America, but I saw some dark parts of America, an ugly side of America, a side of America that rarely sees the light of day. I refer, of course, to the anus and testicles of my co-star, Ken Davitian.” – Sacha Baron Cohen
“On the other side of the spectrum, you see someone like Donald Trump, who is using as the basis of his campaign political incorrectness. It’s clearly intentional. He’d have to be a complete moron just to coincidentally insult Mexicans, and women, and disabled people, and Muslims. So clearly he’s using it as a vote winner. But I think with comedians there’s a responsibility.” – Sacha Baron Cohen
“I remember, when I was in university I studied history, and there was this one major historian of the Third Reich, Ian Kershaw. And his quote was, ‘The path to Auschwitz was paved with indifference.’ I know it’s not very funny being a comedian talking about the Holocaust, but I think it’s an interesting idea that not everyone in Germany had to be a raving anti-Semite. They just had to be apathetic.” – Sacha Baron Cohen
“Don’t listen to me. I’m not a politician. I know nothing about politics. But people are cheering when something very bad happens to him [Donald Trump].” – Sacha Baron Cohen
“I have been incredibly fortunate to be able to work with good directors and for me, it’s not really a plan each time I’m on a set with one of them; I think about what I can learn from them because I’m very aware that my filmmaking skills are very modest.” – Sacha Baron Cohen
