The second of Isla’s ‘Marge’ children’s books – ‘Marge And The Pirate Baby’ – was released in the UK yesterday! Purchase your copy on Amazon.co.uk.
The 2nd in my children's book series is out in the U.K. today #soproud?Yo ho ho, me hearties. Marge is back! This time there's a baby on the loose. Meet Zara, the naughty little cousin, who never sleeps and loves to steal treasure. Marge thinks she's a pirate and maybe she's right. But will the imaginative babysitter be on her best behaviour? And can Jemima save the day at her uncle's wedding?
Isla was a guest on Anna Faris’s weekly podcast ‘Unqualified’ and the twosome talk about a whole range of topics – it’s a really funny interview! Listen in:
Anna Faris is Unqualified Podcast: not-so-great relationship advice from completely unqualified Hollywood types.
This week on Unqualified, Anna and Sim hang out with actress Isla Fisher (Nocturnal Animals, Wedding Crashers, Confessions of a Shopaholic). They talk about tabloid rumors, peaking at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards, and what it’s like being a mom in Hollywood, before testing out how Isla would proceed in some crazy scenarios. Karen Sarducci also pencils in a visit with Isla to pitch some feature film ideas with major Oscar buzz! Will she sign on? Listen in and find out! And come back tomorrow for some listener calls!
On part two of this week’s episode, Anna, Sim, and Isla Fisher dial up some callers. First they call Dianne, whose boyfriend broke the one rule in their non-monogamous relationship by sleeping with a mutual friend who he claims was “in a dark place.” Next, the team dishes out some unqualified advice to Allison, who’s worried that one of her best friends could potentially be marrying the wrong person. Stakes are high this week, tune in!
Here’s Isla on Chelsea last week, promoting Keeping Up With The Joneses. It was a very funny interview – Isla chatted about the movie including working just after she gave birth, the places she lived as a child, being Australian, Marge In Charge and her earlier books, and joining Instagram and following Justin Bieber (she likened him to Donald Trump ;-)). Have a browse of HD screencaptures in our Gallery…
Isla chatted about Marge In Charge during a new promotional interview for Keeping Up With The Joneses:
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.
Today I’ve been able to add a full set of scans from Isla’s new Elle Australia magazine spread. She looks beautiful in the photos, and I love the natural, laid-back look of the shoot. In the relatively short interview, Isla talks about her life and career, including the benefits and pitfalls of not having gone to University, her time on Home & Away, motherhood and working, women in film, Instagram, and very briefly Keeping Up With The Joneses and Marge In Charge.
Please be sure to give us a link back if you re-post these scans elsewhere!
“I feel like I’ve been fortunate because I feel that the things I’ve achieved in my life have surpassed what I’d hoped to achieve. When I thought about myself living in a house in the Hollywood hills I’d always imagined myself to be cleaning it. For me, it’s about reframing the new me and and not comparing it to the old me.”
