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.

Isla Fisher has revealed she had a role in her husband Sacha Baron Cohen’s new movie but it didn’t make the final cut.

The Perth-raised actress, who is in Cannes to promote her latest film, the DreamWorks animation Rise of the Guardians, was meant to play a Russian prostitute in Cohen’s comedy The Dictator. However, as often happens to the best of actors, footage of the 36-year-old funny girl ended up on the cutting room floor.

“And (Sacha) still expected me to do press for the movie,’ Fisher jokes.

“No really, it didn’t work for the movie. I have been through a thousand edits and I have no ego when it comes to this stuff.”

Fisher recalls the last time she was in Cannes when her husband strutted on to the beach in a mankini to promote his film Borat.

“I am happier to see him on a camel,” she says, referring to Cohen’s publicity stunt last week when he chose an unusual animal to take for a morning stroll.

It was one of a number of stunts Cohen has pulled while promoting his new movie around the world, including during his visit to Australia earlier this month.

Sacha Baron Cohen’s wife admits it’s not a normal life

The wife of Sacha Baron Cohen says she doesn’t live a “normal” life with The Dictator actor.

Actress Isla Fisher married him in 2010 and although she admits “it’s not a normal life to lead,” she does love it.

Fisher says: “Obviously it’s not pleasant to say to your husband – instead of ‘Did you pick up the dry cleaning?’ or ‘Did you pick up someone from a play date?’ – ‘Oh wow are we getting sued? Has anyone put a death threat on us?'”

The couple have two young daughters and in 2009 it was reported that Baron Cohen had received death threats due to controversy over his gay fashionista character Bruno.

With that in mind, and being the person closest to him, does Isla Fisher ever feel she can censor the words that come out of Sacha Baron Cohen’s creations?

“Oh, of course,” Fisher reveals. “There’s a lot of, ‘Oh my gosh, no you cannot say that! We’re friends with that person, blah, blah, blah, no!'”

USAToday.com have posted a sneak peek look at Now You See Me, including some additional information on the characters, quotes from the cast, and the very first still of Isla in the movie! It’s a short but good read …

Sneak peek: ‘Now You See Me’

Greed has a new, magical enemy: the Four Horsemen.

Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco star as an all-illusionist supergroup using their powers to steal from the rich and give to the poor in the action film Now You See Me (out Jan. 18).

“They are modern-day Robin Hoods,” says director Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk).

Eisenberg, the group’s leader, plays a sleight-of-hand specialist, Harrelson is a hypnotist/mentalist, Franco is a pickpocket/generalist and Fisher stars as the world’s best-looking escapologist.

She is recruited to the group after showing off her skills with an elaborate stage escape from chains and a water tank.

“So many things can go wrong on something like this,” says Fisher, 36. “And I was doing the scene in high heels.”

Her co-stars have learned the skills of their characters’ professions for the just-completed shoot, which took them to locations in New Orleans, New York, Las Vegas and Paris. Franco, for example, mastered the art of card-throwing. “He takes a regular playing card and slings it with such force that he can cut a banana in half,” Leterrier says.

Harrelson trained under Irish hypnotist Keith Barry and tried to mesmerize cast members including Mark Ruffalo, who plays an FBI agent on the Four Horsemen’s trail.

“Woody tries to hypnotize everyone,” Leterrier says during a break in filming. “Mark actually pretended it worked.”

The first poster and synopsis for Now You See Me have recently been released, and here they are, courtesy of Collider.com, who call the film one of their “most anticipated films of 2013”. The poster and synopsis were released during the American Film Market, in which I believe the film was sold to distributors. Now You See Me is scheduled to open on January 18th 2013, and will begin filming early in the New Year.

The Four Horsemen, a magic super-group led by the charismatic ATLAS (Jesse Eisenberg), perform a pair of high-tech magic shows, first astonishing audiences by robbing a bank on another continent, and then exposing a white-collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members’ bank accounts.

FBI Special Agent DYLAN (Mark Ruffalo) is determined to make the magicians pay for their crimes—and to stop them before they pull off what promises to be an even more audacious heist. But he’s forced to partner with ALMA (Melanie Laurent), an Interpol detective about whom he is instantly suspicious. Out of desperation he turns to THADDEUS (Morgan Freeman), a famed magic debunker, who claims the bank heist was accomplished using disguises and video trickery. One thing Dylan and Alma agree on is that the Horsemen must have an outside point person, and that finding him (or her) is key to ending the magicians’ crime spree. Could it be Thaddeus? Or Alma? Or could it really be…magic?

As pressure mounts and the world awaits the Horsemen’s spectacular final trick, Dylan and Alma race to find an answer. But it soon becomes painfully clear that staying one step ahead of these masters of illusion is beyond the skills of any one man—or woman.

This isn’t exactly ‘news’, but it is slightly interesting none-the-less!

Isla Fisher’s hair shade is set to be one of the most popular this season.

The flame-haired beauty has helped put red hair back on the style map, along with the likes of Julianne Moore and Christina Hendricks.

Celebrity colourist Tracey Cunningham thinks more people than ever will opt for the fiery shade in Fall and Winter.

“Christina put this colour on the map and now it’s finally filtering down to the high street,” she explained. “Look to Isla for inspiration: hers is a favourite look of mine and it’s going to be huge this season.”

Although the colour looks hot, upkeep can be difficult. Red fades quickly so it’s important devotees go for regular salon trips and keen their tresses in tip top condition.

“Red fades the fastest because, as a synthetic colourant, it’s the furthest from a natural hue and needs to be maintained and refreshed often, or it will lose its vitality,” she told InStyle.
