The stunt on Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards featuring "Bruno" star Sacha Baron Cohen landing with his naked buttocks in Eminem’s face was staged, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The stunt was created with Eminem’s consent, and the two rehearsed it before the live show, the publication says, citing sources close to MTV and Cohen, as well as a blog entry from comedy writer Scott Aukerman.
