Isla on BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends

During her time in Edinburgh at the weekend, Isla was a guest on BBC Radio 4’s show Loose Ends. She chatted about her Marge book series and the reasons for writing it, writing with her Mum in the 90’s, and her career including Nocturnal Animals, Grimsby and Wedding Crashers.

Listen to the full show here , and find photos in our Gallery.

Clive Anderson and Tom Allen are joined by Isla Fisher, Selina Thompson and Dave Johns for an eclectic mix of conversation, music and comedy from the Edinburgh Festivals.



Isla on the cover of The Daily Telegraph’s ‘Stella’ Magazine

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.

New interview with The Metro

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.’

“Grimsby” HD Film Screencaptures

July 13th 2016No Comments"Grimsby", Gallery Updates

As promised on our Twitter page (follow us!), the Gallery has been updated with HD screencaptures from Grimsby today. Isla played Jodie, which was a small role as an MI6 agent working alongside Sebastian and Nobby; Jodie was “straight and serious”, and her character was an anchor of sorts throughout which Isla describes as a “challenge”. Be sure to check out the movie – it’s available to buy/rent now – it’s an outrageous comedy but if you like Isla and Sacha then you’ll probably enjoy it 😉 Check out our screencaptures in the Gallery…

“We had to play it straight – Sacha’s character is so heightened that we needed the whole rest of the world to feel very real.”
