Born October 13, 1971, in London, England.
While his comic personas Borat, Bruno, and Ali G have stirred up all kinds of controversy, Sacha Baron Cohen has largely hidden from the media spotlight. A middle child, he grew up in a London surburb. His father operated a number of clothing stores and his mother worked as a fitness instructor. Cohen developed a passion for breakdancing as a teen and belonged to a Jewish youth group through which he first started acting.
