A crowdfunding campaign has been launched for a woman deceived by Sacha Baron Cohen to make it part of his “Borat” sequel.
Those who follow the Amazon Studios follow-up event for the stuntman’s 2006 comedy may remember the 62-year-old Jeanise Jones (Jeanise Jones), who was played by actress Maria Bakalova (Maria Bakalova) Paula Borat’s teenage daughter, Tutar, hires a nanny. Jones was praised for her sympathy, because she was told that Tutar was preparing to marry an older man in her native Kazakhstan.
Jones believed this was true and tried to persuade Tutar to “use her own brain” to achieve happiness, and told her that she could get married without cosmetic surgery.
In an interview with The New York Post, Jones revealed that she was deceived by the producer only after discovering the movie̵

Jones told the media: “I was really shocked at the time, it was such a movie.”
“I feel pain for her and try [to see] Jones added: “If there is any way to contact her, she doesn’t need to do that.”
She revealed that after being paid $3,600 for participating in comedy roles (including a trip from Oklahoma to Washington), she was unable to stand out from Tatar’s story and asked the congregation to pray for her.

“We are worried,” Jones explained. “We were there to pray for her and ask God to help her. We are doing what we consider to be Christians.”
Jones claimed that she didn’t know which movie she was watching until her cousin showed her the movie trailer.
Representatives of Baron Cohen did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
Jones pointed out in another interview with Variety Show that she did not feel “betrayed” by the film producer, and partly blamed herself for not carefully reading the contract rules before signing the contract.
She said: “I will never say that I was betrayed, because part of the reason is that I did not read the contract. I will take responsibility for it.”
However, she believes that considering the success of the film and the major studios behind it, she is still far from being paid for appearing in Borat 2.
She told the media: “I can’t say it’s fair because they knew it would be a movie, but I didn’t.” “I just thought I was doing a documentary about our situation in the United States. But I blame myself. Did not read these documents when signing them.”
Despite participating in many scams, Jones seemed to stride forward and pointed out that she was relieved that the young woman was just an actress.
When asked what she said to the two actors, she said: “I will hug her. I am glad to know that she is not in that situation. I hate to hear from anyone in that situation.” “He, I don’t know. It’s not true, so I shook his hand and said,’You saved me.'”
However, after calling her the “moral compass” of the film, Jones’s pastor launched the GoFundMe campaign to try to raise funds for her. Derrick Scobey, who initially contacted the producer, discovered that someone might be part of a documentary about a woman forced to marry an older man and chose Jones herself. Didn’t realize it was all tricks.
