The actress who honey-trapped Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani in the new Borat movie has been revealed to be a glamorous BLM-supporting 24-year-old from Bulgaria who was plucked from obscurity for the role.
Maria Bakalova, who graduated from film school last year, has skyrocketed into the presidential campaign after it was revealed last night she duped Donald Trump’s lieutenant Giuliani by pretending to be a conservative reporter.
Following an interview on coronavirus, Bakalova led the 76-year-old statesman into a hotel room, where he reclined on a bed and appeared to put his hands down his pants, before he was interrupted by Sacha Baron Cohen’s character
‘She’s 15. She’s too old for you,’ Borat screams in the scene filmed in July, waving Giuliani off his ‘daughter’ Tutar.
Giuliani later pointed out, ‘I was fully clothed at all times,’ and told a reporter he was merely tucking in his shirt, not doing anything untoward.
‘I lean back and I tuck my shirt in and at that point they have this picture that they take, which looks doctored by in any event,’ the former mayor of New York told WABC radio Wednesday.
The actress has been launched to the forefront of the battle between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, with Giuliani already center stage since he revealed emails which appear to show Hunter Biden profited from his father’s office.
Giuliani accused Hollywood of deliberately leaking details of his appearance in the Borat movie to stifle coverage of the Hunter Biden story.
‘They’ll do anything, they’ll attack me over anything possible,’ Giuliani said. ‘And now the idiot Borat is going after me with a totally sensationalized false account of a ridiculous movie, I guess, he has done.’
Giuliani called it a ‘hit job’ and said that ‘everybody in Hollywood hates me.’
‘It’s not an accident that it happens when I turn in all this evidence on their prince and darling Joe Biden, who is one of the biggest crooks in the last 30 years and since I have the courage to say that I’m the target,’ the president’s personal lawyer said.
Little-known Bakalova, in the foothills of her Hollywood career, has followed in the footsteps of many A-list titans with Instagram posts in support of Black Lives Matter which feature among the raft of luxurious poolside selfies she has taken in LA.
She made a hilarious appearance on Jimmy Kimmel’s chat show alongside Cohen on Tuesday night.
Both actors in character, Bakalova demanded that Kimmel take his trousers off and marry her.
‘I am already married!’ Kimmel insisted, to which Borat asked: ‘How many wives do you have?’ +26
The conservative Drudge Report chose to share the image, captioning it with ‘Rudy!!’ Drudge has become increasingly critical of President Donald Trump
Bakalova has starred in feature-length Bulgarian films, earning two awards for her performance in Transgression in 2018, playing the lover of an ageing rocker, and also as the leading lady in 2020 comedy, Last Call.
She has also appeared in several TV shows, with a credit in an episode of the Italian hit mafia series Gamorrah three years ago.
Born in Burgas in 1996, she studied at the Bulgarian National School of Arts and is a classically trained flautist as well as an actress.
She attended the National Academy for Theatre and Film Arts in Sofia and graduated in 2019.
Giuliani, giving his account of his boudoir meeting with Bakalova, said he believed it was a ‘legitimate’ interview – the topic was the coronavirus – at the Mark Hotel in New York City in July.
‘I did the interview with the young woman who was new to interviewing and I was being kind to her,’ he said. ‘At one point she explained to me some problems I had, I actually prayed with her.’
When he got up to leave he said he had his jacket on.
‘I was fully clothed at all times and I had to take off the electronic equipment and when the electronic equipment came off, some of it was in the back and my shirt got a little out, came a little out, although my clothes were entirely on,’ he told WABC.
‘She says something about, “Do I want a massage?” I realize now that this is a set-up and I call my security guy Brian who’s right outside,’ Giuliani recalled. ‘And then all of the sudden crazy Sacha Baron Cohen runs in with a cape on and he’s yelling and screaming all sorts of stupid stuff.’
