Ouch! Dan Wootton meets film star The Dictator (aka Sacha Baron Cohen)

I had the dubious ‘pleasure’ of speaking to The Dictator (played by the actor Sacha Baron Cohen) recently.

His Excellency, General Colonel Doctor Aladeen, Democratic President-For-Life, Invincible and All-Triumphant Commander, Chief Ophthalmologist, Brilliant Genius of Humanity, Excellent Swimmer Including Butterfly and Beloved Oppressor and Ruthless Protector of the Precious and Expendable People of Wadiya is promoting the release of his DVD.

Very soon I’ll bring you his quite remarkable interview, revealing his thoughts on our favourite celebrities.

But I thought today I’d share you the moment I asked him what he thought of Cheryl Cole.

He replied: ‘This girl is so talentless that she actually has Will.i.am advising her how to do the music.’

The Dictator: The Extended Cut is available now on DVD.
