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. ”

Charlize Theron Jokes to Isla Fisher at Oscars: I’m Going to Punch You in the Face!

Was Charlize Theron embarrassed by her Oscar dance moves? The Snow White and the Huntsman actress, 37, participated in Oscar host Seth MacFarlane’s opening dance number for the 85th annual Academy Awards Sunday, Feb. 24, but she had a hard time accepting praise on her performance — especially from Isla Fisher.

An insider tells Us Weekly that while Fisher, 37, was backstage at the Dolby Theatre, she told a female friend about a funny exchange interaction she had with Theron.

“I went up to Charlize Theron and said, ‘Girl, you can dance!'” Fisher recalled, according to the eyewitness. “And Charlize said, ‘I’m going to punch you in the face right now!'”

All kidding aside, the South African actress did admit to E! News that she was “sort of tricked” into participating in the ballroom dancing number with Channing Tatum. “I thought it was going to be something smaller, like he pulls me up from the audience and we do a little spin,” she said. “But then he was was like, ‘Rehearsals start Monday!'”

And she didn’t really enjoy the pressure it put on her. Calling the experience “completely nerve-wracking,” the Oscar-winning star joked, “I thought I was going to have to wear one of my son’s diapers!”

As I had hoped, Isla attended the Oscars in Hollywood last night, to support her husband’s movie again! Isla was seen backstage at the main event, and then walked the red carpet of the big Vanity Fair After Party. Isla wowed in a cobalt blue dress by Monique Lhuillier, with jewellry from David Webb. After walking the red carpet of the party, Isla enjoyed the fun inside with Sacha, and pals Naomi Watts, Reese Witherspoon & Jennifer Aniston. Thanks to my friend Jen I’ve been able to add a ton of gorgeous HQ photos from the night to our Gallery, so go have a browse of Isla at Hollywood’s big party…

Isla has become an ambassador for Save The Children’s new campaign around breast milk! Isla travelled to Brazil to see how they manage breast milk supplies and how they use it to save the lives of newborns. She has also appeared on the Aussie TV show Sunrise to promote the cause. Read all about it, plus find photos and videos for the campaign within this post. It’s wonderful to see her working with this charity, and you know she’s picked a cause close to her heart.



Superfood for Babies: Breastfeeding Report

All women deserve the support they need to breastfeed, if they choose to. Breastfeeding has important benefits for moms and babies everywhere, and can literally save lives in the developing world. Save the Children’s new report, Superfood for Babies, estimates that 830,000 babies could be saved if all women breastfed in the first hour of life. Exclusive breastfeeding for six months could save even more lives. Yet, the report explains, moms face four significant barriers to successful breastfeeding. They are cultural and community pressures, the health worker shortage, lack of maternity legislation, and inappropriate marketing of breast-milk substitutes. Read the press release.

Isla Fisher Makes Raunchy Joke About Giving Birth to Huge Baby at Golden Globes

Even high heels won’t make up for this height difference! Isla Fisher engaged in some girl talk with fellow Hollywood stars Connie Britton, Julianna Margulies and Carla Gugino at the Golden Globes Sunday night, and conversation eventually turned to baby talk.

“My husband is 6’4″,” the petite Bachelorette actress informed the rest of the ladies while in line for the restroom. “It was nine pounds coming out of my vagina.”

Fisher is married to funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen, and the couple have two daughters together — Olive, 5, and Elula, 2.

Margulies, 46, couldn’t help cracking up at the actress’ quip, an onlooker tells Us Weekly.

Great news Isla fans, Miss Fisher graces the cover of the new Winter issue of Women’s Health magazine! I can’t be 100% sure, but I think this is the UK edition. Isla looks fantastic in the new photoshoot, and alongside it is a new interview in which Isla touches on several subjects, including her husband, her body, and her Aussie pals. It’s so exciting to see Isla on the cover of a big magazine again, especially one as different and interesting as Women’s Health!

Below are some released quotes from the interview, and you can see the cover and first two photoshoot pictures in our gallery. I will have scans for you asap.

The magazine hits UK (?) news-stands on Wednesday.



• “After doing that [Wedding Crashers], I had 12 months where I was auditioning three times a day and I didn’t get a single job. That was a real low point. But with hindsight, those movies turned out to be awful, so I dodged a bullet. If I’d got any of them, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

• “I never had the chutzpah to just come to LA and make it. I didn’t have that confidence. I’m always surprised when I get a job. I never saw this in my horizon.”

• “I do watch my food. But I’ve been blessed in that I never had any body issues during pregnancy. I loved being able to eat whatever I wanted and the whole experience of giving life. And I never worried about losing the weight afterwards, because breastfeeding burns all the calories up so fast. Breastfeeding – that’s my big slimming secret! That and Spanx. Anytime anyone compliments me on my figure, I’m wearing my Spanx undies.”

• “I’m not actually very good at the maintenance thing. I don’t buff, exfoliate, pluck, rinse, moisturise, suck, bleach, whatever all those women do. I don’t have vajacials. Have you heard of those? It’s like a spa for your vagina!”

(On her fellow Aussie stars) “We can all do the accent really easily. And we all look great in a bikini. Including Russell Crowe – no one pulls off a bikini like Russell. I am sort of friends with them all. I just did a movie with Hugh Jackman [Rise Of The Guardians], and I catch up with Naomi [Watts] whenever I’m in New York.”

(On converting to Judaism) “It takes a couple of years of studying. I’ve always been really into family and food, so culturally it was the right fit for me.”

(On Rango co-stars Johnny Depp and Bill Nighy) “He’s like a magical creature – incredibly funny, clever and nice. It’s sort of as if he’s come from another planet. And Bill Nighy is very warm, gregarious and very talented. He played the snake in Rango and was hilarious on set.”

The palace may not be pleased with Prince Harry’s recent Las Vegas antics, but images of the nearly naked Royal have earned the Prince a few new fans – “Bachelorette” stars Isla Fisher, Kirsten Dunst and Rebel Wilson.

Access Hollywood caught up with the stars at the premiere of their new comedy in Los Angeles on Thursday to find out if they think the Prince would make a good bachelorette party guest.

“If his butterfly breaststroke hybrid was anything to go by, then yes,” Isla told Access, referencing the Prince’s Sin City weekend pool race with Olympian Ryan Lochte. “I think it’s a pretty funny bit of footage.

“I mean, I wouldn’t want to be in the palace right now,” she added with a laugh. “I’m sure the Queen’s not exactly jumping for joy.”

“Bridesmaids” alum Rebel Wilson admitted she too would enjoy a little Royal blood at her festivities.

“If Prince Harry wanted to strip at my bachelorette party I would allow it,” the hilarious actress told Access. “I mean, I wouldn’t be like, ‘Oh, no.’ I’d be like, ‘Yes!’”

Kirsten told Access the Prince would “definitely, definitely” be fun to party with, but said his naked party photos weren’t exactly shocking.

“[Prince Harry] knew how to party since he was a little kid. Come on,” she said. “He was always that [way], I mean, whatever. He’s having fun, he’s a young guy, big whoop!”

Catch Isla, Rebel and Kirsten in “Bachelorette” — available on video-on-demand now before it hits theaters in select cities on September 7.
