Isla Fisher Announces Her New Children’s Book Series: Reading Is an ‘Integral Part of Childhood’

Actress Isla Fisher charmed audiences in Wedding Crashers, and now, she’s channeled her quirky humor into children’s books.

PEOPLE has the exclusive cover reveal for her book Marge In Charge, which is the first of a three-installment series and will be published in the U.S. this fall.

” ‘Don’t worry about being perfect or you’ll miss out on the fun!’ That’s the message in the Marge books,” Fisher tells PEOPLE when describing the middle-school book series, which follows the adventures of two siblings and their unorthodox babysitter Marge.

“Jemima, who is the narrator and the eldest child, feels she has to be a ‘good girl,’ so thanks to Marge she learns to let her ‘freak flag’ fly and enjoy being a kid,” continues Fisher, 41, a mother of three.

In conjunction with the U.S. book deal, Fisher will be the final speaker at the BookExpo’s Children’s Book & Author Breakfast on June 2 (which will also feature authors Jason Reynolds, Marieke Nijkamp and Jennifer Weiner). There, she’ll discuss her upcoming book, as well as personal stories tied to her love for literacy.

“It saddens me when I think about how much vocabularies are shrinking — I know mine is, and there’s only so much I can blame on lactation,” writes Fisher about what inspired her to create the series.

“Nocturnal Animals” HD Film Screencaptures

Isla’s recent drama/thriller movie Nocturnal Animals was released on DVD/Blu-ray last month, and we now have HD screencaptures from the film in our Gallery for you. The film was very slick and chic, however, overall I felt it was cold and underwhelming. Isla had a tiny part with very little to do – although it was great seeing her work alongside such an impressive cast! Make sure you see the movie if you can, and check out our screencaptures in the Gallery – although do be warned that they obviously contain major spoilers as well as some images that may not be suitable for younger viewers…

Isla and her husband attended the Vanity Fair Oscars After Party in Hollywood last week. Isla looked vibrant in a yellow gown by Aussie designer Alex Perry, and accessorised with a Swarovski purse and Stuart Weitzman heels. Isla joked that she was “auditioning for Beauty & The Beast” in this outfit! Inside the party she mingled with friends including Reese Witherspoon and Diane Kruger.

“Keeping Up With The Joneses” HD Film Screencaptures

Keeping Up With The Joneses is now available on DVD/Blu-ray/digital release in the US now, and we have HD screencaptures from the film in our Gallery for you. Isla plays Karen Gaffney, a suburban wife who – along with her husband Jeff (Zack Galifianakis) – gets caught up in an international spy plot involving their new neighbours (Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot). It was fun to see Isla in a comedy again, but I felt that overall this was a lacklustre movie; any attempts to be funny fell flat, and the characters were too stereotypical. Any Isla film is worth a watch though 😉 Enjoy the HD screencaptures in our Gallery:

Isla at the AACTA International Awards

January 8th 2017No CommentsGallery Updates, Personal, Public Events

Fresh from her recent Trailblazer honour at the AACTA Awards, Isla attended the AACTA International Awards in Los Angeles on Friday. This international version of the AACTAs is their opportunity to celebrate the best non-Australian films of the year. Isla attended with her husband, and presented the award for Best Actress to fellow red-head Emma Stone for La La Land. Emma snuck on behind Isla on stage to accept the award, and the two shouted ‘surprise’ at each other simultaneously; Isla said afterwards, “I was completed surprised, but why I said ‘surprise’ was because everyone was coming out of their seats from the audience, and Emma just came out from behind me … I really enjoyed it.” Isla was also snapped with her Aussie friend Nicole Kidman backstage. Isla looked gorgeous in a floor-length flowing yellow gown by Monique Lhuillier with jewellery by Tasaki – I love this look on her, she pulls it off perfectly! We have over 100 gorgeous HQ photos in our Gallery for you, and scroll on down this post for a couple of articles/interviews from the night…

Isla at the AACTA’s

As expected, Isla attended the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards (AACTAs) in Sydney earlier today, where she was presented with the Trailblazer Award. She was accompanied on the red carpet by her husband, and her mum Elspeth was inside for the ceremony with them. Isla was presented with her award – which she calls the “pinnacle” of her career – by Aussie actor Geoffrey Rush, and thanked fellow Aussie actresses and fellow orange person Donald Trump in her speech! Isla wore a classy black crystal polka dot dress by Aussie designer, with Bulgari jewellery. Read more from the night in the posts below (many of the links have good red carpet video interviews and ceremony footage in them that can’t be embedded here) and find the first HQ photos in our Gallery. Check back in the coming days for more coverage!

Congratulations to Isla on this fantastic honour – and on her 15th anniversary with Sacha! 🙂
