Isla and Gal Gadot promoted Keeping Up With The Joneses on CBS’s The Talk earlier today, and chatted about their kissing scene, the action sequences in the film, and what it was like working together – they seem to be really good friends! There was also a brief mention of the upcoming Nocturnal Animals. Here is the interview, and find screencaptures in our Gallery:

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 we have a full set of scans from Glamour Mexico! This is a very different shoot, but equally beautiful. Unfortunately my Spanish is rusty so I can’t give you details on the interview, but it seems that she spoke about Keeping Up With The Joneses, Nocturnal Animals, Marge In Charge, previous characters she’s played, and women and diversity in film/television – it’s a much more in depth interview than Elle. Isla is also on the cover of Glamour Latin America – it’s the same interview but the two editions have a couple of different pictures within them. Enjoy the scans in our Gallery!

Again, please give us a link back if you re-post these elsewhere.

Nocturnal Animals won the Grand Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival tonight, as the festival drew to a close. The Grand Jury Prize is considered the ‘second place’ award, behind the Golden Lion – which went to The Woman Who Left this year.

Deadline has the full list of awards handed out tonight.

Sam Mendes Talks Jury Experience As Hollywood Wins Big On The Lido – Venice

Hollywood had a pretty good evening on the Lido tonight. After a few years of sitting on the sidelines at the Venice Film Festival, when movies like Spotlight and Birdman were overlooked for gold (or silver), a number of films and talent that are expected to figure in the awards conversation later this year were rewarded.

Among them, Tom Ford’s noir thriller Nocturnal Animals won the Grand Jury Prize; Hollywood musical love letter La La Land’s Emma Stone took the Best Actress Volpi Cup; and Noah Oppenheim won Best Screenplay for Pablo Larrain’s lauded Jackie.

The Grand Jury Prize is a very new distinction and Ford becomes the fourth director to win it. Former recipient Joshua Oppenheimer was on the jury this year. Nocturnal Animals was warmly embraced here ahead of its Venice bow and Ford flew back from Toronto to attend the ceremony tonight. He was visibly emotional, and charmed the audience by speaking in Italian saying he truly feels at home here. Focus releases Nocturnal domestically on November 11.

Nocturnal Animals screened for the press today at the Toronto Film Festival (I think the ‘red carpet’ screening is this Sunday) and it received more fantastic reviews – here are a few of them:

Tom Ford’s ‘Nocturnal Animals’ Slays With Cynicism, Wins Over Toronto

Tom Ford‘s “Nocturnal Animals” premiered in Venice last week, but a dizzying amount of press and industry players showed for the Toronto International Film Festival screening of the designer-turned-director’s second feature.

The Princess of Wales theater hit capacity for the Amy Adams-Jake Gyllenhaal thriller, a screenplay Ford adapted from Austin Wright’s novel “Tony and Susan.”

Adams plays an icy modern artist named Susan who receives a package from her ex-husband Edward (Jake Gyllenhaal). It’s his debut novel, titled “Nocturnal Animals,” a harrowing story of a husband and father named Tony whose wife and daughter are abducted by a group of West Texas thugs.

Susan is happy for the distraction, thanks to a growing divide with current husband Hutton (Armie Hammer). The structure of the film gets a bit meta, vacillating between Susan reading the novel — a complete depiction of the action within the book (Gyllenhaal also plays Tony in the story-within-the-story, as Susan sublimates her ex for his lead character) — and flashbacks to how Susan and Edward met, and eventually how she came to leave him.

It’s plenty of story to chew on, but nothing short of stunning.
