Sacha Baron Cohen apologises to Seacrest for Oscars ashes stunt

Sacha Baron Cohen has apologised to Ryan Seacrest for the ash-spilling prank he pulled on the TV presenter at the Oscars in February.

The funnyman dressed as the title character from his new film The Dictator to walk the red carpet at the Hollywood awards show, and tipped what he claimed to be late North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il's remains all over the American Idol host in a stunt to promote the movie.

However, backstage at this weekend's Saturday Night Live show, Cohen made amends with Seacrest - and the actor's wife Isla Fisher also apologised for her husband's antics.

Speaking on his radio show on Monday, Seacrest revealed, "I saw Isla Fisher and I said hi, and she said these words, and then it dawned on me. She said, 'I apologise for my husband.' And I said, 'Oh, yes, yes, gotcha, thank you, thank you very much for saying that'... I didn't realise her husband, The Dictator, Sacha Baron Cohen, was doing a walk-on cameo (on the show).

"He comes off stage, comes over to me, breaks character and says sorry about the Oscars, it wasn't personal. (He was) very very apologetic and genuine and kind and sweet."

Cohen also told Seacrest he wasn't the original target for the prank.

Seacrest adds, "He started telling me how it went down. Originally he said that they were going to spill whatever it was in that urn on George Clooney. Someone decided that wasn't a great idea because he was up for a lot of nominations, it was a big night that night. Then they somehow spun the wheel of tragedy and landed on my name."
