‘Bruno’ Premieres in Los Angeles, Cuts Michael Jackson Scene

Sacha Baron Cohen rolled into the Los Angeles premiere of his Bruno flick on top of a giant disco-esque tank top, showing off his signature legs in yet another pair of booty shorts.

The premiere was held at Hollywood’s Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, just hours after the annoucement of Michael Jackson’s sudden death.

Coincidentally, the premiere took place almost directly above Jackson’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was closed to the public. Fans who tried to gather at his famed star instead took their mourning to the other Michael Jackson star on the Walk Of Fame, belonging to the radio host of the same name. 

An MJ-related skit in the movie was also cut just hours before the premiere. In the scene, Bruno interrogates LaToya Jackson about her brother and even tries to get his number out of her cell phone. There is word on whether or not the scene will be added back into the film for its July 10 release.

Other stars on the red carpet include Cohen’s wife Isla Fischer, Christina Ricci, Stephanie Pratt, Jonah Hill, and Rosario Dawson.
