And what's a Bruno premiere without wacky hijinks? Right before British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen arrived in character, an impostor escorted by a group of barely-clothed men and women pulled up to the theater in a pink stretch Hummer. Needless to say, it was a promotional stunt, and after 10 minutes security quickly ushered them out.

During his press conference, Bruno stated that Sydney was his favorite "country" and dubbed Australian PM as a hottie. "The reason I'm late is I had breakfast in bed with Kevin Rudd," he quipped. "That guy is uber cute. I thought Obama was, like, the hottest guy int he world until I met Kevin." Sorry Barack! Bruno will hit theaters on July 10.

Bruno takes the stage to address members of the press.
