Well not Borat himself and not by England, but the Board of Guardians of British Jews banning Sacha Baron Cohen, the man who portrays Borat (among many others, including Ali G.). Their problem is with his constant portrayal of Kazachstan as a place where Jews are thrown down the well and where women are all prostitutes. Cohen is banned from entering any UK synagogue for six months and he is slapped with a penalty of 9,200 pounds!
Talk about ridiculousness. I say to the board: how about you get a sense of humour you bunch of idiots.
Or something like that. In an interview with a UK magazine (SundayExpress), Beckinsale ranted about how fed up she is with the superficial culture of Hollywood (duh! Why did you become an actress?) and how if it all doesn’t cease this moment she’s going to go back to street corners selling communist literature.
Cool! That’s kind of hot. Her imbecility and her political radicalism add 2 points to the 8 points she already has for looks. So she’s a 10/10. A very high score Beckinsale, don’t mock it!
