Bruno Flying at the MTV Movie Awards

If there’s anything we’ve learned from this weekend, it’s this: Eminem’s performance in 8 Mile was no fluke. The rapper’s also a very good actor.

Three days after getting butt-to-face time with Bruno (a.k.a. Sacha Baron Cohen), the man who was held hostage in his chair finally speaks out.

In an interview with Rap Radar, Slim Shady says he couldn’t have been more pleased with how the planned stunt played out. “I’m thrilled that we pulled this off better than we rehearsed it. It had so many people going ‘nuts’ so to speak. Everyone was blowing me up about it,” he said.

So what convinced Eminem to go along with the prank? “Sacha called me when we were in Europe and he had an idea to do something outrageous at the Movie Awards. I’m a big fan of his work so I agreed to get involved with the gag.”

And how did the rapper feel about the final result? “After the ceremony I went back to my hotel and laughed uncontrollably for about 3 hours. Especially after I saw it on air.”

BTW - if Sunday’s stunt was so awkward you couldn’t look away, make sure to check out (the movie) when it debuts on July 10.
