Isla Fisher plans to take her children to see her new movie because they’re “light years” ahead of other kids.
The actress has two children with her husband Sacha Baron Cohen, three-year-old Olive and another daughter born last September whose name has not been made public.
Although the couple are famously private about their personal life, Isla has admitted becoming a mother has influenced her work choices. She is currently promoting animated movie Rango, in which she voices the character of Beans, and can’t wait for her offspring to see it.
“Yeah being a mother totally influences me. Now that I’m a mom I don’t want to be away from the kids so I only work if I really love the script, love the character, love the director,” she told Cover Media.
“Oh yeah, yeah [the kids will see this].They’re ready for it, they’re very sophisticated, light-years ahead of where they should be.”
Johnny Depp voices the title character of the movie. Rango is a chameleon and joins forces with Beans to work out why their town no longer has a water supply.
Isla loved working on the animation as it meant she didn’t need to worry about watching herself back on the big screen.
“To see yourself as a lizard is a very surreal experience. And it was so nice because I was able to enjoy my own performance,” she laughed. “Normally when you watch yourself on camera, I think at least when you’re magnified to that degree you just question why all the features in your face have been clustered together, there’s just so many things… it’s hard.”
Rango is released in the UK on March 4.
