Isla and her Great Gatsby castmates and crew opened the illustrious Cannes Film Festival today! All the lead cast (minus Jason Clarke it seems) plus Baz, Catherine Martin and screenwriter Craig Pearce attended a photocall for the movie first thing, followed by a press conference, and then a (rain-soaked) red carpet premiere this evening. Isla looked fresh and feminine in a little white dress by Dolce & Gabbana paired with Roger Vivier heels for the daytime press, and changed into a dramatic strapless red gown by Oscar de la Renta with a Bulgari Heritage necklace for the premiere. Both fantastic looks from her, and it’s so exciting seeing her premiere a movie at the Cannes Film Festival – surely a great moment for her 😀

You can watch the official video footage from the photocall, press conference and premiere at the Cannes Film Festival website. Further down this post is an article about the opening day of the festival, and in our Gallery are the gorgeous first HQ photos from the days events – enjoy!

Isla Fisher found it “romantic” to start a family with her husband Sacha Baron Cohen.

The actress has two daughters with her husband Sacha Baron Cohen – Olive, five and Elula, two. Isla has thrived since becoming a mother and believes it has deepened her bond with Sacha. The stars are determined to give their children a normal upbringing wherever possible.

“I think the most romantic thing you can ever do is to make a family with someone,” she said in an interview with British magazine Stylist. “I love being a mom and it’s my favourite topic personally, but professionally I hate talking about it. In England it’s wonderful actually because they pixelate kids’ faces and they’re quite good at respecting the rights of children because they didn’t choose to have famous parents so they deserve to have a normal childhood like we all have. I don’t mention them because I really want them to have safe, normal lives and be treated like individuals away from what we do.”

The 37-year-old actress is widely admired for her youthful looks and she often lands roles playing women in their 20s. Although Isla feels lucky to have been blessed with age-defying genes, she has recalled a time when it led to an embarrassing situation.

“When I first came to Hollywood, I went with Sacha to a very big Hollywood party for Lost In Translation. When we pulled up, everyone you could imagine was in this room, Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson, Dustin Hoffman… This lady came straight up to me, introduced herself as Colleen and then turned to me and said, ‘Come with me, I’ve got something to show you.’ I’m thinking oh my god, I’m so excited,” she explained. “So she takes me away from Sacha and opens this door and there’s this giant pink room covered in kids’ posters and there in the middle is a group of 14-year-old girls and she said, ‘Everybody, this is Sacha’s daughter,’ and asked me if I wanted a soft drink. Clearly I should have worn more make-up!”

Isla Fisher has admitted she’s a big fan of the Royal Family – and even once had a correspondence with Prince William’s late mother, Princess Diana.

The Aussie star, who is married to British actor Sacha Baron Cohen, says she received a surprise letter from the Princess after sending her some drawings.

‘I was a huge Diana fan,’ says Isla, 37.

‘I drew pictures of her with the Queen and sent them to her when I was six. She actually wrote back thanking me for “my wonderful drawings”.

‘My friend Naomi [Watts] is playing her in a movie, which I can’t wait to see.’

Isla admits she had a bit of an unorthodox upbringing.

‘I wasn’t raised with any discipline at all,’ the mum-of-two tells You Magazine.

‘Mum let us throw massive parties in the house when we were teenagers. Her argument was, “If you’re going to get up to mischief, it’s far better to be doing it under my roof”.

‘She would lock herself away so that she didn’t have to listen to us while we drank Victoria Bitter!’

Check out Isla on the cover of the new issue of UK Easy Living magazine! It is once again a new photoshoot and interview, and the photos released so far are just beautiful. The cover is to promote The Great Gatsby.

Read quotes from the interview further down this post, and find the cover and first two pictures from the shoot in our Gallery. I’ll be on the lookout for scans, of course.

More event and tv appearance photos coming tomorrow!

‘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!’

A couple of weeks ago Isla travelled to Las Vegas for Now You See Me press duties at the annual CinemaCon event. CinemaCon is an event for studios to promote their upcoming releases to movie theatres, and Isla and her Now You See Me co-star Morgan Freeman were on hand to introduce the trailer for their film. Isla looked pretty in a Chloe blouse and skirt, and nude Casadei heels. HQ photos are up in our Gallery courtesy of my good friend Rachel!

Hello fans! It’s been a busy month, so I’ve missed a few Isla bits here and there and will work to catch them up now. To start with, Isla paid a visit to SeaWorld in San Diego earlier this month, and posed for the cameras with a beautiful beluga whale. Check out the HQ photos in our Gallery (thanks Rachel!) and read a bit more about the visit below.

Isla Fisher takes her kids for a taste of the Arctic – in California

Former Home and Away star Isla Fisher has already swapped Summer Bay for Hollywood, and earlier this week she also took her two daughters to get a taste of the Arctic at San Diego’s Sea World.

The actress took five-year-old Olive and two-year-old Elula to the attraction’s Wild Arctic display on Tuesday to see animals native to both the North and South Poles.

Among them were endangered Humboldt penguins and a beluga whale named Nanuq, who cheekily planted a kiss on the 37-year-old star as she posed for a picture beside his pool during her VIP behind-the-scenes tour.

A new cast poster for The Great Gatsby was released yesterday, and today has also brought us a 3rd trailer for the film! This trailer feels a bit different to the previous two, and tells us a bit more about the story and relationship between Daisy and Gatsby. There is a very brief new shot of Isla in it, along with the previous spoilery footage. Watch the trailer below, and find HD screencaptures from it in the Gallery.

The Hollywood premiere for the film will be held on May 8th. Premieres in Sydney and Cannes will follow, and I’m sure there will be more too.

As well as Fashion magazine, Isla can also be seen on the cover of California Style magazine this month! She looks sparkly in blue on the cover of their April issue, and the photos inside are simple yet colourful and pretty. It’s so exciting seeing her on the cover of not just one, but two magazines at the moment!

The cover and photoshoot can be seen in our Gallery. Further down this post are some quotes and tidbits from the interview. Again, if anyone can provide us with scans from this magazine then drop us a line and we’ll give you lots of credit & thanks 🙂
