Horton Hears a Who! opens in cinemas internationally today! Isla Fisher voices Dr. Mary Lou Larue. Here’s what she had to say about her character:

“She’s furry and purple. Do I look purple? It means you’re sexually frustrated if you wear purple. I just read it in some book.”

Shopaholic On Set Pics – March 9 & 11, 2008

First of all, apologies for the recent downtime. I have been moving the site to a new server due to the rapid growth of the contents and popularity. Everything has been checked and I believe we have no errors. However, we’re only human and bound to make a mistake so if you come across anything that isn’t loading, not there, broken links, etc, please let us know and I’ll get it taken care of! Hopefully the site loads smoothly for everyone now.

The lovely Isla Fisher has been busy filming Confessions of a Shopaholic in New York City. I’ve added two new sets of photos of her on the set in a very interesting bridesmaid dress. First she was filmed being a bridesmaid on Suze’s (Krysten Ritter) wedding and then yesterday Hugh Dancy and Isla were pictured filming a kissing scene and bursting in laughter after each take. Very funny! :love: I truly cannot wait to see this movie, I bet it’ll be fun and colorful.

I have also updated most sections of the site with new quotes and trivia bits. :happy:

I’ve added four new articles/interviews with our lovely redhead, which include some quotes about co-star Ryan Reynolds, and how much Isla liked to work with him. She also talks about her family in one of the article and tells us that she likes bands like Oasis and Nirvana! One of the article contained a new photoshoot picture so click on the thumbnail next to here to view it :blush:

Some fun quotes:

“Everybody is in love with Ryan Reynolds,” Isla Fisher told me. “I just think if you open the dictionary and look up the world ‘smoldering,’ you should see his name. He’s gorgeous.”

“And also being kind of little and having red hair, you get teased a lot, and making jokes is a way to turn it around. I don’t mind making a fool of myself: let’s just put it that way!”

“I still write. I’d love to write more trashy chick-lit. At the moment I just rewrite my own lines, which probably annoys most directors – though, thankfully not Adam Brooks!”
