Isla celebrates her 41st birthday today, and we’d like to wish her a very Happy Birthday!! We hope she has a special relaxing day today, and wish her continued happiness and success in the year ahead – she deserves it!
Fresh from her recent Trailblazer honour at the AACTA Awards, Isla attended the AACTA International Awards in Los Angeles on Friday. This international version of the AACTAs is their opportunity to celebrate the best non-Australian films of the year. Isla attended with her husband, and presented the award for Best Actress to fellow red-head Emma Stone for La La Land. Emma snuck on behind Isla on stage to accept the award, and the two shouted ‘surprise’ at each other simultaneously; Isla said afterwards, “I was completed surprised, but why I said ‘surprise’ was because everyone was coming out of their seats from the audience, and Emma just came out from behind me … I really enjoyed it.” Isla was also snapped with her Aussie friend Nicole Kidman backstage. Isla looked gorgeous in a floor-length flowing yellow gown by Monique Lhuillier with jewellery by Tasaki – I love this look on her, she pulls it off perfectly! We have over 100 gorgeous HQ photos in our Gallery for you, and scroll on down this post for a couple of articles/interviews from the night…

Isla appeared on US daytime chat show The Rachael Ray Show earlier today, to promote Nocturnal Animals. She also chatted about her husband, and her infamous hidden talent for making pig noises. Below are a couple of clips, and I’ll add the full segment and screencaptures as soon as I can:
As expected, Isla attended the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards (AACTAs) in Sydney earlier today, where she was presented with the Trailblazer Award. She was accompanied on the red carpet by her husband, and her mum Elspeth was inside for the ceremony with them. Isla was presented with her award – which she calls the “pinnacle” of her career – by Aussie actor Geoffrey Rush, and thanked fellow Aussie actresses and fellow orange person Donald Trump in her speech! Isla wore a classy black crystal polka dot dress by Aussie designer, with Bulgari jewellery. Read more from the night in the posts below (many of the links have good red carpet video interviews and ceremony footage in them that can’t be embedded here) and find the first HQ photos in our Gallery. Check back in the coming days for more coverage!
Congratulations to Isla on this fantastic honour – and on her 15th anniversary with Sacha! 🙂
Isla was a guest on Anna Faris’s weekly podcast ‘Unqualified’ and the twosome talk about a whole range of topics – it’s a really funny interview! Listen in:
Anna Faris is Unqualified Podcast: not-so-great relationship advice from completely unqualified Hollywood types.
This week on Unqualified, Anna and Sim hang out with actress Isla Fisher (Nocturnal Animals, Wedding Crashers, Confessions of a Shopaholic). They talk about tabloid rumors, peaking at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards, and what it’s like being a mom in Hollywood, before testing out how Isla would proceed in some crazy scenarios. Karen Sarducci also pencils in a visit with Isla to pitch some feature film ideas with major Oscar buzz! Will she sign on? Listen in and find out! And come back tomorrow for some listener calls!
On part two of this week’s episode, Anna, Sim, and Isla Fisher dial up some callers. First they call Dianne, whose boyfriend broke the one rule in their non-monogamous relationship by sleeping with a mutual friend who he claims was “in a dark place.” Next, the team dishes out some unqualified advice to Allison, who’s worried that one of her best friends could potentially be marrying the wrong person. Stakes are high this week, tune in!
A couple of weeks ago Isla appeared on The Late Late Show With James Corden whilst promoting Keeping Up With The Joneses. She was joined on the show by Ewan McGregor and Niall Horan, and it was a very funny interview; the guests also took part in the ‘Spill Your Guts Or Fill Your Guts’ segment which was particularly hilarious! Watch a couple of clips from the show below – we’ll have more from it in our upcoming video archive (at present I can’t find an embeddable version for you) – and find stills and HD screencaptures in our Gallery:
Here’s Isla on Chelsea last week, promoting Keeping Up With The Joneses. It was a very funny interview – Isla chatted about the movie including working just after she gave birth, the places she lived as a child, being Australian, Marge In Charge and her earlier books, and joining Instagram and following Justin Bieber (she likened him to Donald Trump ;-)). Have a browse of HD screencaptures in our Gallery…
Isla appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, to promote Keeping Up With The Joneses – she chatted about the movie and her co-stars, Sacha organising Katy Perry to sing at her birthday party, and what she got Sacha for his recent 45th birthday. Below is the interview (the sound is a bit off so there are some better quality clips within this post), and in the Gallery you can find HQ photos of Isla arriving at the studios, HQ stills, and HD screencaptures – she looks fab in red!
