London, (ANI): Eminem has confirmed that Sacha Baron Cohen's Bruno barebum stunt at the weekend's MTV Movie Awards was staged. The rapper said that the stunt in which he had a close encounter with Cohen's butt cheeks had been rehearsed.
"Sacha called me when we were in Europe and he had an idea to do something outrageous at the movie awards," the Mirror quoted him as telling hip-hop site Rap Radar. "I'm a big fan of his work so I agreed to get involved with the gag. I'm thrilled that we pulled this off better than we rehearsed it. It had so many people going 'nuts', so to speak," he added.
Eminem said that after he stormed out of the auditorium he went back to his hotel and 'laughed uncontrollably for about three hours.'
