Sacha Baron Cohen pulled a prank at the Britannia Awards when, upon accepting an award, he pushed an elderly women in a wheelchair off the stage. How unlike him, to pull a prank! He said the woman (above) was the, via Daily News,
oldest surviving actor to have worked with Chaplin in a silent movie.
Then, he “accidentally” fell on “Chaplin’s cane” and pushed her into the audience.
He then said,
Grace Cullington is the oldest, no, sorry was the oldest-surviving (Chaplin co-star). I dedicate my award to her. This is obviously a tragedy. She has upstaged me. But on the bright side, what a great way to go, giving an award to me.
I’d like to say a few words her family. Do not try to sue me. If you decide to get the lawyers involved, I will take you down just like I did your granny. The cane that woman forced on me was clearly defective and I’ve got lots of witnesses.
The audience was like, wha?
Still better than Miley’s latest performance stunt, no?
