The glamour model, now 53, starred in Baron Cohen’s first Borat film Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan in 2006.
In the comedy, the main character was obsessed with Ms Anderson and at a book signing tried to kidnap her by shoving her into a “marriage sack”.
Fans attack the actor after his plot fails and he races out of the store to continue chasing the Baywatch actress, where he is eventually pinned down by security.
In the Last Laugh podcast last year, Baron Cohen revealed that they needed to film the scene twice in order to get enough of a reaction from fans.
He explained: “She wrote that down on her divorce papers – ‘Reason to divorce: Borat.’”
Baron Cohen said that Ms Anderson showed Kid Rock the movie while they were at his friend Ron Meyer’s house but “hadn’t told him that she was in it”.
He continued: “She texted me after the movie and I said, ‘How did it go down?’
“And she goes, ‘Great, though I’m getting divorced.’ I thought it was a joke, but it was actually true.”
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm…, also known as Borat 2, is available to stream on Amazon Prime.
