The Borat 2 babysitter who said she felt “betrayed” by Sacha Baron Cohen has revealed a moment that never made it into the film.

Jones, 62,  won fans after her appearance in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, which has broken Amazon Prime Video records since being released on 23 October.

She features in a number of scenes as she is recruited to babysit Tutar (Maria Bakalova), the 15-year-old daughter of Borat (Baron Cohen). 

Tutar is introduced to Jones with a collar around her neck, with Borat suggesting to Jones that he treats his daughter like a pet.

Jones and Tutar then strike up a bond, with Jones teaching Tutar that she should not undergo plastic surgery purely at her father’s behest, and providing wisdom about being a woman in the world.

It turns out, though, there was one moment that was scrapped from the finished movie.

Jones told Variety: “I don’t know if this is in the movie or not, but he told me, ‘If she lays a golden egg, please, please can I have just a little bit? It’s worth so much money where I’m from.’ I told him, ‘If she lays a golden egg, man, you can have it. If she is going to lay a golden egg… you can have that egg.'”

She has also said that she believed Tutar was a real person who may have been sold into the sex trade.

Recalling meeting Borat and Tutar for the first time, Jones said: “You can’t print what first went through my mind,” she said while recalling meeting Borat and Tutar for the first time. “I was like, ‘What … in the world…. is this?’ It threw me off. It really took me a minute to comprehend what was going on.”

Since the film, a GoFundMe page has been set up for Jones, who was paid just $3,600 (£2,600) to participate in the film. Baron Cohen has since donated $100,000 (£77,482).

Since the film’s release, some of its subjects have spoken out about their appearance.
