Sacha Baron Cohen has donated $100,000 to the community of one of the stars of Borat 2, who was left unemployed due to Covid-19. Jeanise Jones was one of the breakout stars of Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, as she babysat for Borat’s daughter Tutar, played by Maria Bakalova, during the movie – which she believed to be a serious documentary.
And Baron Cohen has shown his gratitude by donating a huge sum to Jones’ Oklahoma City community on her behalf.
Pastor Derrick Scobey confirmed that the actor had donated $100,000, and told People that the money will be distributed by the Ebenezer Baptist Church to provide shelter and food for those in the community.
Scobey said: ‘I was blown away but not surprised because I was told about what type of heart this man has. ‘Maybe it’s a little risqué, some of the things in the movie, but he has a good heart.’ (BBC)
