Isla Fisher doesn’t like to work because of her children.

The Australian actress – who has three-year-old daughter Olive and an unnamed daughter aged around six months with British comedy actor Sacha Baron Cohen – only signs up to a project if she really loves it, but enjoyed seeing herself as a lizard in new animated comedy Rango.

She said: “Now that I’m a mum I don’t want to be away from the kids. I only work if I really love the scripts or the character or the director. And yeah, to see yourself as a lizard is a very surreal experience. It was so nice because I was able to enjoy my own performance.

“Normally when you watch yourself on camera, I think at least when you are magnified to that degree you just question why all the features on your face have been clustered together.”

One aspect of the film 35-year-old Isla particularly liked was getting to interact with the other voice actors – including Johnny Depp and Abigail Breslin – rather than recording the part of tough country girl Beans in a booth.

She told BANG Showbiz : “Comedy is timing. The timing you get from another performer being opposite you, the chemistry you get with it, the humanity you get from your own voice when you’re looking at a real person verses a microphone. It’s irreplaceable, that kind of energy. It was hugely beneficial, I believe, for all the performances, to be doing them.”

Even petite Isla Fisher sometimes struggles with her weight.

The star of the new animated flick Rango told UsMagazine.com that she can’t tuck into food like she used to. “I don’t know. I’m just trying my best,” said the mother of two and wife of comedian Sacha Baron Cohen. Daughter Olive is 3, and Fisher just gave birth to her second daughter — whose name has not yet been released — 6 months ago.

Getting rid of the baby weight has been tough work. “I used to say that I could eat anything I wanted and it was true and now I can tell you that I can’t eat whatever I want.”

Fisher, 35, radiated beauty at the Rango premiere, a film where she shared animated scenes with Johnny Depp.

As for her work with Depp, well, that was a piece of cake. “He’s so funny and I was so lucky and blessed to work with him and he’s such a brilliant actor,” she said.

A notoriously private couple, Fisher and Cohen were married in a top secret ceremony in Paris in March 2010.

I just came across this article with music producer Clive Davis, and it mentions Sacha Baron Cohen will be attending his annual pre-Grammy Party this year (the Grammys are this coming Sunday, so the party may be the day before). If this is the case and he is attending, I wonder whether Isla will come along too?? Let’s hope so!

Your annual pre-Grammy Awards party has typically offered testament to the notion of stylistic diversity. Can you give us a sampling of who’s onboard this year?

I’m looking at the RSVP list and it goes from Akon to Earth, Wind & Fire and Jeff Beck, Sacha Baron Cohen, Keyshia Cole and Jermaine Dupri, Berry Gordy, Quincy Jones, Dr. Luke, Whitney Houston, Magic Johnson … and that’s just up to the Js.

Today is a special day, as we celebrate our lovely Isla’s 35th birthday! I’d like to wish her a very Happy Birthday, and I hope she spends a perfect day with her loved ones. And I hope the year ahead brings her all she wishes for! Leave your birthday messages for Isla by posting a comment on this post, if you’d like to.

Today also marks this site’s birthday! Isla Fisher Web was opened by Maria & Riikka on this day back in 2008, meaning we turn 3 years old today.

So to celebrate this special day, I’ve made a small Gallery update with some rare/previously unposted photos. I’ve added a few really old and rare photoshoots from unknown years, in which Isla looks so cute! I’ve also added a new-old photoshoot that was seen in GQ magazine in 2009, and is absolutely stunning! Isla looks amazing in it, and it’s definitely one of my favourite photoshoots. There’s also a photoshoot from Elle back in 2008, which hadn’t been added here til now.

And, another fun rare & exclusive treat – I’ve added screencaps from the Home & Away special ‘Weddings’ DVD, which features a few shots of Shannon at a Summer Bay wedding way back when. These are the first photos from the soap that have been posted here at IFW, so I hope enjoy them. I know I personally always loved Isla as Shannon 😉

As I’ve mentioned before, I am planning to re-vamp the Gallery so look forward to more rare photoshoots and Home & Away photos (as well as lots more other stuff too) in there! And for this same reason I won’t be updating the current Gallery (unless anything new pops up) as everything will be saved and posted in the re-vamped Gallery.

At the height of the McCarthy witch-hunts in the 1950s, the phrase ‘reds under the bed’ alluded to the idea that rabid communists were plotting revolution everywhere – and people wonder why America remains such a paranoid country.

Anyway, enough of foreign policy. Why keep redheads under a bed? That’s got to be illegal surely? Some equal opportunities board must be campaigning against this blatant discrimination.

Because, let’s face it, after one look at these flame-haired beauties, who hasn’t got mad copper-coloured hair love? Not us, for sure…

– From a new interview with CNN.com:

And while there’s a long list of people Hill would like to work with, at the top for female costars are Anne Hathaway, Natalie Morales and Isla Fisher.

“I really like Isla Fisher; I think she’s hysterical and really talented,” Hill said. “Anne Hathaway is the best out there right now.”
