Sacha Baron Cohen has suggested the Australian prime minister should "get a boob job".

The actor made the jibe while in character as General Aladeen during an interview with Australian radio's The Kyle and Jackie O Show. Sacha plays the role in his new comedy film The Dictator, about a leader who risks his life to ensure democracy never comes to the country he oppressed.

When asked what he thinks of Australia's leader, Julia Gillard, he recommended a makeover.

"I think there is a problem with her appearance. She has got to lose 30lbs. and get a boob job," he said.

"If she has no respect for herself how can anybody else."

He also described his own leadership style, praising his work. General Aladeen boasted of how he juggles his responsibility as a dictator while being father to 14,000 sons.

"I am a great leader. I love my people I am like a father to them," he said.

"I have 14,000 sons. No daughters wink, wink. Some leaders are more hands on and more hands off. I'm more heads off but I have had no complaints."

Sacha is known for playing his movie characters during interviews including Borat, Ali G and Bruno.
