‘I put on 10lbs… by eating cupcakes!’ Isla Fisher admits she used her ‘natural instincts’ to gain weight for Great Gatsby role

It’s a situation actresses wish for – to be told they need to gain weight for a movie role.

So when Isla Fisher was given free reign to pile on the pounds to play Myrtle in The Great Gatsby, she made sure she did so by chowing down on her most desired sweet treat – cupcakes.

Isla admitted to Easy Living magazine that gaining the 10lbs she needed to for the role was easier than she thought it would be.

She said: ‘I was breastfeeding, so I had a little flesh of my own, I am proud to admit, but I also gained 10lb, just by following my natural instincts.’

Asked what she meant by that, Isla replied: ‘Cupcakes!’

Isla’s 4th magazine cover of the year is New York society magazine Gotham! Yes, she graces the cover and pages of this magazine’s May/June issue looking very classic and elegant. The interview inside is conducted by Isla’s Bachelorette co-star and friend Kirsten Dunst, and the twosome talk about Myrtle, Isla’s career, her recent work for Save The Children, and whether she plans to work with Sacha.

The magazine held a party in New York City last night in honour of Isla’s cover, and Isla looked slick, modern and metallic in a gold Pierre Balmain dress, with Casadei heels and a gold Salvatore Ferragamo. Our good friend Rachel has again helped us out with some gorgeous HQ photos, which have now been uploaded into our Gallery.

We also have scans and the photoshoot for you to browse through, and there are a couple of behind the scenes videos from the photoshoot below.

Isla Fisher says breastfeeding is nature’s diet

Isla Fisher says breastfeeding is the best thing to do to lose your baby weight.

The ‘Great Gatsby’ star has two daughters, Olive, five, and Elula, two, with her husband Sacha Baron Cohen, and she insists she didn’t need to worry about how she was going to shift her extra pounds because nursing uses up so many calories.

In an interview with the new UK issue of HELLO! magazine, she said: “I believe in the power of breastfeeding. I know some women say it doesn’t help them lose the weight, but I think it burns an extra 250 calories a day.

“I breastfed for two years with both my children and by the end of that period I was back to normal. I swear by it. I’ve also been lucky in that I’ve been able to afford assistance with childcare, so I can go out for a run or a workout.”

Although Isla has been able to get her figure back she admits she relies on some extra help so she always looks great when she hits the red carpet.

The 37-year-old actress swears by the stomach-minimising power of Spanx to make her figure slender in any outfit.

Asked what her best-kept fashion secret is, she enthused: “Spanx! Never leave home without them. You can’t eat very much and they’re restrictive like a girdle, but, hey, you look really slender and slim.”

Vogue Australia have dedicated a number of pages to The Great Gatsby in its current May issue, with a feature showing behind the scenes of the making of the film, and a second feature looking at the cast and their costumes. There is only one photo of Isla as Myrtle, but it’s a great shot, and you can now see it in our Gallery. See the rest of the Gatsby spreads (nothing further of Isla) here.

I’ve also come across another photo from this same promotional photoshoot, and have added that to our Gallery too.

Isla brightens up the May issue of US Fitness magazine, with a brand new interview and photoshoot! The photoshoot is fun and colourful, and I love the honest interview in which Isla talks about her body and what she does to stay in shape. She also shares her exercise playlist with the magazine.

The magazine also features the first still of Isla in The Great Gatsby, as well as a new still from Now You See Me.

Check out the photo coverage in our Gallery, and you can read the interview there, on our Press page, or at FitnessMagazine.com.

Be sure to pick up a copy of this magazine if you can!

“For me, so much about life is acceptance. You can look in the mirror and find a million things wrong with yourself. Or you can look in the mirror and think, I feel good, I have my health, and I’m so blessed. That’s the way I choose to look at it. I don’t need to be perfect. I’m doing just fine.”

FASHION Magazine May 2013 Cover: Isla Fisher

Weeks before Isla Fisher started to prep for the onslaught of worldwide premieres for her latest film, The Great Gatsby, the 37-year-old actress took time out to pose for FASHION’s May 2013 issue and chat with our features editor, Elio Iannacci.

Aside from talking about her upcoming film roles (she has four films slated for release this year), the mother of two and wife of funny man Sascha Baron Cohen talked about her heroes, her style choices and, of course, her thoughts on comedy.

Here are a few of the highlights from the upcoming May 2013 cover story:

On her two favorite red carpet dresses:
“I still love what I wore to the London premier of Wedding Crashers even though I wore it years ago. It was a Chanel pale pink strapless dress. I also love this midnight blue Herve Legere number I wore to the Golden Globes when my husband won for Borat.”

On working with family members:
“I recently wrote a script with my mom—a thriller—just for fun because I enjoy writing so much. It has involved a lot of gin and tonic, a lot of giggling, a lot of late night emailing back and forth. I highly recommend actually doing something creative with a family member. When you get to know someone creatively you get to know a whole other side to them. ”
