To add the finishing touches to our content, I have now completed the remaining pages of Look-a-likes and Isla with other celebrities. The lookalikes section is fairly empty besides some celebs wearing the same dress as Isla, and a little section about Isla’s doppelganger, so if you have any lookalikes you’d like to submit then do get in touch! The With Other Celebs page took some time to put together, and is a pretty fun page to look at, I think! Has Isla been snapped with any of your other fave celebs? Have a browse! Personally I love the pics of her with her old Home & Away co-stars, as well as those with Charlize Theron, Heath Ledger, Leo DiCaprio and Sean Penn – she looks like she’s having a great conversation with Charlize, and is very excited to meet Leo!
The Biography has now been brought up to date, too.
Minus the Style section, I think our content is now ‘complete’ – yay! Alongside those Style pages, I will next be working on Pilot Season and Home & Away caps, and will also get working on updating our Video archive. Anything else you particularly want me to add to the site? Get in touch!

After much hard work over the past couple of weeks, I have now managed to finish our extensive Filmography pages! Since the last filmography content update posted, I have added and written the remaining pages for Isla’s more recent films – from 2006 to 2011 – including The Lookout, Hot Rod, Definitely Maybe, and Confessions Of A Shopaholic. As always, all pages are packed full of information, trivia, quotes and more that I have researched and transcribed for the site. Hopefully you will enjoy reading them and finding out more about Isla’s films! I really enjoyed writing them, and am proud to be able to provide an extensive resource for Isla’s career on this site.
I’ve also brought the upcoming films pages bang up-to-date, in particular Bachelorette.
A few more content updates still to come over the weekend, then that will be done and I will be giving in to my guilty pleasure and adding some old Home & Away screencaps 😛
Isla will appear on the US talk show Conan on Tuesday August 28th, presumably to promote Bachelorette! This is fantastic news, and is sure to be a funny interview.
All being well, we will being you coverage of the show the day after.
Isla and her Bachelorette co-stars Kirsten Dunst and Lizzy Caplan are featured in a new photo spread in the September issue of Elle (US)! The ladies talk about female friendship and this generation of women, and pose in the latest ‘cool-girl’ fashions for the magazine. The photoshoot has been added to our Gallery, and the interview to our press page, all courtesy of Elle.com.
Katy Perry is on the cover of this issue, so keep an eye out for it and pick up a copy to see Isla inside!
All the Single Ladies
Whether your idea of cool-girl dressing is cutout mod sheaths or sexy-strong tailoring, the firebrand trio of this month’s darkly funny bachelorette will show you how to have a good time.
When wickedly funny Los Angeles playwright Leslye Headland first began taking meetings with Hollywood executives, she heard the same question on repeat: “They’d ask,‘What’s the female version of an Apatow movie?’ I would always say, ‘Depressing.’” Audiences love a man-child, but would they find “a woman struggling with her femininity” just as funny? Turns out they do. Bachelorette, Headland’s raucous Sundance hit, in theaters this month, is hilarious, twisted, and startlingly incisive. On the eve of a wedding, three early-thirties bridesmaids lean hard into old archetypes—the ditz (Isla Fisher), the nympho (Lizzy Caplan), and the alpha female (Kirsten Dunst)—and wrestle with their own inadequacies as the rotund runt of their high school pack (the always-game Rebel Wilson) beats them all to the altar, with a Disney- perfect prince to boot. Make no mistake: This isn’t Bridesmaids. Headland spins her premise into something grittier, a fiercely sharp send-up of the idea, she says, “that there’s a checklist by which women should live their lives, so that they’re always defining themselves by what they don’t have.”

Bachelorette was released on Video On Demand in the US yesterday – admittedly I’m not quite sure how this works or where you can watch it etc., but if you do know and have the ability to watch it, then be sure to give it a go! Drop back in and let us know what you thought of it after you’ve watched it. It will be released in limited US cinemas on September 7th, and you can find additional international release dates here.
Several new stills for the movie have been released recently, and I’ve added them to our Gallery. There is also a new Russian poster for the film – same photo/artwork, Russian text.
