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!

Isla was on the cover of the Daily Telegraph’s supplement magazine Stella today, with a new photoshoot and interview to promote Keeping Up With The Joneses. In the interview they talk about the usual topics – her husband, interest in comedy, motherhood and family life. Read the interview on our Press page, and find the photos in our Gallery. I’ll try to add actual scans as soon as possible…

Isla Fisher on living with Borat and Ali G, and Keeping up with the Joneses

She stars in Hollywood blockbusters, holidays with Bono and has an A-list husband by the name of Borat (or Brüno, or Ali G…). Yet Isla Fisher can walk down the street to barely a second glance. She tells Stella the secret of her extraordinary ordinary life

Nobody seems to notice Isla Fisher, who is browsing the fiction section at Waterstones in Hampstead.

It’s surprising, considering that the Australian actress has starred in global hits ranging from Wedding Crashers to The Great Gatsby, and is married to Sacha Baron Cohen, one of the most recognisable figures in television and film.

Both successfully remain under the radar, despite their high-profile careers.

Isla and Sacha, 45, split their time between Los Angeles and north London. I’m meeting Isla today to discuss her latest comedy, Keeping Up With the Joneses – and she admits few projects can lure her from their daughters Olive, eight, and Elula, six, and their eighteen-month-old son Monty.

“I’m lucky enough to be able to stay at home and be with my family,” she says. “I used to devour every script, but now I’m focused on my family life, which has brought me so much satisfaction in a deep way.”

Isla, petite and beautiful, is 40 but could pass for 25. Summery and stylish, she’s wearing a blue, batique-print, off-the-shoulder dress by Michael Kors.

Today I’ve been able to add a full set of scans from Isla’s new Elle Australia magazine spread. She looks beautiful in the photos, and I love the natural, laid-back look of the shoot. In the relatively short interview, Isla talks about her life and career, including the benefits and pitfalls of not having gone to University, her time on Home & Away, motherhood and working, women in film, Instagram, and very briefly Keeping Up With The Joneses and Marge In Charge.

Please be sure to give us a link back if you re-post these scans elsewhere!

“I feel like I’ve been fortunate because I feel that the things I’ve achieved in my life have surpassed what I’d hoped to achieve. When I thought about myself living in a house in the Hollywood hills I’d always imagined myself to be cleaning it. For me, it’s about reframing the new me and and not comparing it to the old me.”

Isla chats about Marge In Charge, Grimsby, females in comedy and more with London newspaper The Metro:

ISLA in the SUN

Actress Isla Fisher’s career has taken some inspired new turns. Claire Allfree catches up with her as she releases her new children’s book

YOU hear Isla Fisher before you see her. That throaty Australian drawl, that big, booming laugh. And then that flash of bright auburn hair that’s a frequent fixture on the red carpet thanks to Fisher’s film career, and that of her notorious husband, Sacha Baron Cohen (but which, for readers over a certain age, will be forever associated with anorexic Shannon from the Aussie soap Home And Away).

She clearly knows the man who runs the in-house café at her local Waterstones as she orders a latte but no one else in this manicured part of north London, no doubt well used to celebrities traipsing up and down the high street, bats an eyelid.

Warm, immediately friendly and sporting impressive long turquoise nails, Fisher is here to talk about her first children’s story, Marge In Charge, a comic caper aimed at seven-year-olds, featuring Marge, babysitter extraordinare to Jemima and her younger brother, Jakeypants, and an anarchic cross between Mary Poppins and Pippi Longstocking, with a dash of Dame Edna Everage thrown in.

‘Marge subverts all the rules,’ says Fisher of her fictional creation, who creates mayhem each time she comes to stay. ‘The kids end up babysitting their babysitter. I live vicariously through Marge because, being a mother myself, these days I have to be sensible.’
