Apparently, Eminem is a better actor than I thought.
I was pretty convinced that there was no way the Em/Sacha Baron Cohen fiasco, at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, was staged, but, when I'm wrong I say I'm wrong (Dirty Dancing reference).
"I'm thrilled that we pulled this off better than we rehearsed it," Eminem told RapRadar about the incident in which Sacha's Bruno character flew down form the ceiling in a thong and put his junk in the rapper's face. "It had so many people going 'nuts' so to speak. Everyone was blowing me up about it."
Apparently, Em and Sacha are pals.
"Sacha called me when we were in Europe and he had an idea to do something outrageous at the Movie Awards," Mr. 8 Mile revealed. "I'm a big fan of his work so I agreed to get involved with the gag."
"After the ceremony I went back to my hotel and laughed uncontrollably for about three hours," he admitted. "Especially after I saw it on air."
Okay, so maybe he does have a sense of humor and can dish what he takes. I promise to be more forgiving the next time out, Em.
