Hollywood beauty Isla Fisher has gushed about her Borat star husband – comparing his “sexy” body to that of David Beckham.
The actress is married to lanky funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen, who famously posed in a lime green mankini.
Fisher told Red magazine: “My husband has the body of David Beckham, the brain of Stephen Hawking and the style of Tom Ford – a rare combination.”
She added: “He’s sexy and his morals are pretty hard to beat.”
Australian star Fisher said her husband’s ability to “cause chaos”, throwing himself into confrontational, real-life scenes, meant she was often concerned about his welfare.
“Unlike most wives who can say ’How was your day at work, darling?’, I have to say ’Are you getting sued? Have you been arrested? Are you in jail? Are all your limbs still attached?’.”
Fisher – whose films have included The Wedding Crashers and Confessions Of A Shopaholic – said Baron Cohen persuaded her to move into comedy.
“I was going up for all these dramatic roles and not getting them until Sacha said ’You’re so funny, you should be going for comedy’. It had never crossed my mind,” said the mother of two.
