Sacha Baron Cohen keeps it brief at movie premiere

Sacha Baron Cohen was his usual outlandish self at the Monday premiere of his latest film, The Brothers Grimsby, which opens here on March 10.

Dressed as his character Nobby, the 44-year-old English actor walked the red carpet in London's Leicester Square in just a grey turtleneck and a pair of Y-fronts, posing seductively while sporting a fake paunch and surrounded by a bevy of scantily clad women.

Describing Nobby as "a complete idiot", Cohen also couldn't resist a joke about the upcoming Academy Awards.

"There's no chance Grimsby will get any Oscars this year. That is why we decided to cast two black actors," he said, referring to the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.
