Baron Cohen: 'Talladega Nights Scared Me'
Borat star SACHA BARON COHEN has dubbed the preparation for his role in TALLADEGA NIGHTS: THE BALLAD OF RICKY BOBBY as "the worst experience" of his life.
The comedian/actor, who plays Frenchman Jean Girard in the Will Ferrell-fronted movie, insists posing as a racing driver was a tough task - because the high speeds were frightening.
He says, "The first thing they did was to get a driver to drive me around the track. You sit in the passenger seat and you are going 180 miles per hour. I was screaming like a little girl.
"For the film, I had to turn it into a 'Yes! Yes!' It was the worst experience of my life."
