It was his own decision to leave - mostly because James Cameron has the mother tree stuck up his ass!
Funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen was announced as an Oscar presenter, but has since changed his mind. Cohen and Ben Stiller had a sketch planned where Sacha would appear as the female Na’vi from Avatar and Ben would translate.
It would begin to appear obvious that Stiller wasn’t translating correctly because Cohen would begin to become upset. Eventually Sacha would pull open “her” evening gown to reveal that she was pregnant with Cameron’s love child and confront her babydaddy a la Jerry Springer.
But Oscar producer/pussy Bill Mechanic turned down the HIGHlarious idea because he was afraid it would offend Best Director nominee/giant tool James Cameron. So much so that he thought Cameron would walk out of the live telecast!
WTF?! That would have been amazing!
It seems Mechanic was head of Twentieth Century Fox when Cameron’s Titanic went over budget and schedule, so he's seen the worst of him.
“Let’s just say that Cameron isn’t known to be, shall we say, ‘self-deprecating,’” claims an insider.
But wouldn't that be perfect revenge for all the bullshiz he put you through?! Everyone is so afraid to step on toes!
Cohen’s spokesman, Matt Labov, explains his client's withdraw from the presenter's list.
“I hate to use the term, because it's so ubiquitous, but there were ‘creative differences,'" said Labov. "Nothing acrimonious, but both sides felt that since they couldn’t agree, [Cohen] might as well remain in London.”
Get a life, James Cameron - or better yet, buy one!
