Well that didn’t take TOO long.
Sacha Baron Cohen personally apologized to Ryan Seacrest on the SNL set this past weekend for ashing all over Ryan on the red carpet back in February.
Surely you remember The Dictator’s HIGHlarious Oscar night hijinks?
Ryan spoke about his encounter with Sacha:
“I didn’t realize that ‘The Dictator’ was doing a walk on cameo [on SNL]! He comes off stage and comes over to me. He breaks character and says, ‘Sorry about the Oscars. It wasn’t personal.’"
Not personal?? Tell that to his dry cleaner!!
Apparently Ryan wasn’t even Cohen’s original target!! He had planned to punk George Clooney instead but thought better of it.
“He [Sacha] said, ‘We were going to do it on George Clooney, and then someone decided that it wasn’t a great idea because he was up for a lot of nominations. It was big night for him that night.’ Then they somehow spun ‘The Wheel of Tragedy’ and it ended on my name.”
We don't pity Ryan too much. He watched Rihanna perform on SNL from Lorne Michael's private suite.
Do U think Ryan should forgive Sacha or start planning his revenge?
