‘Nocturnal Animals’ Costars Amy Adams and Isla Fisher Share Epic Tales of Being Confused for One Another

In what is easily the year’s biggest casting triumphs, Isla Fisher plays the literary avatar of Amy Adams in the new story-within-a-story thriller Nocturnal Animals. The red-headed actresses have long been considered celebrity doppelgangers, and yes they do get mistaken for one another in person, too.

“It happens “a lot,” Adams, 42, told us at the film’s recent Los Angeles press day. “We’re dispelling the myth that we’re the same person,” said Fisher, 40. “There are going to be a lot of surprised folks out there. Because I get congratulated a lot on Enchanted.”



Fisher has also received props for Adams’s achievements from one very famous pop star. “After the Oscars the year [Adams was nominated for] American Hustle, I’m talking to Bono,” Fisher recalled, then stopped to apologize for the U2 name-drop. “The crowds part and in walks Lady Gaga. And she goes, ‘I just want to say, you were wonderful in American Hustle.’ But I don’t want to correct her because Bono’s there. So I just say, ‘Thank you.‘”

The actresses’ resemblance has made for some good gags, too. Adams recalled attending Fisher’s birthday party, where the guest of honor’s famous husband, Sacha Baron Cohen, brought it up in a toast. “He’s [saying], ‘I wanted to date Amy Adams, but she wasn’t available,’” Adams said. “I felt really awkward.”

The Hollywood couple even had Adams’s head Photoshopped onto Fisher’s body for one of their recent holiday cards. “It’s a running joke inside their family,” Adams explained. “It’s said, ‘Season’s Greetings from Amy, Sasha, and the kids,’” Fisher revealed. “But what’s amazing is several people didn’t even notice it wasn’t me. Or that my name was written ‘Amy.’”

Nocturnal Animals, which was written and directed by Tom Ford and costars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Armie Hamme, opens in select cities Nov. 18 and nationwide Dec. 9. More coverage on the film to come.

Isla Fisher on Being Mistaken for ‘Nocturnal Animals’ Co-Star Amy Adams: It’s a Huge Compliment

Nocturnal Animals co-stars Isla Fisher and Amy Adams know that you can’t tell them apart, but they’re not the least bit offended.

“I find it a huge compliment because I think Amy’s gorgeous,” Fisher told ET’s Carly Steel during a recent sit-down.

Adams admitted that even she can see the resemblance at times.

“Sometimes I’ve been like, ‘Oh yeah! I can totally see it,'” Adams said. “But she’s small and cute, and I’m sort of not as small or as cute,” she joked.

While Fisher doesn’t mind the confusion, she revealed that it can sometimes lead to awkward situations.

Here’s Amy Adams talking about being mistaken for Isla during recent Nocturnal Animals press interviews:

“I loved it! Isla and I talk about it all the time, we thought it was the best thing ever. It’s fantastic! I guess it proves that we are two different people. She’s fantastic, though. I loved that idea, when I heard it, I said that’s the best idea ever.”
