Isla talks “Grimsby” and “Shopaholic” to Glamour UK

Isla Fisher wants Confessions of a Shopaholic 2 to happen

GLAMOUR’s Leanne Bayley sat down with Isla Fisher to discuss Grimsby (the movie, not the English fishing town), but she couldn’t resist asking a quick question about Confessions Of A Shopaholic – aka one of her favourite movies. Would Isla ever bring back Rebecca Bloomwood? Yes, she blimming well would.

“I would love to bring Rebecca Bloomwood back, I love Rebecca Bloomwood,” she said. “I don’t know if anyone else wants her back but just you and I could bring her back.”

When asked if her fashion-loving alter-ego would be able to cope with all of the style inspiration you have in this digital world, she said probably not: “It would have been hard because her credit cards would have maxed out pretty early on and she wouldn’t have had the goodwill of innocent shopkeepers.”

Back on the subject of Grimsby though – Isla Fisher attempted the British accent for her part in the movie. Who did she channel? Well, she went regal with her choice: “The Queen. I think about the Queen and she just flows through me.”

In the movie Sacha’s love interest isn’t his wife, it’s their mutual friend Rebel Wilson, who had some pretty raunchy scenes to film with her man. Did that bother Isla? “I had to be on set making sure there was no hanky-panky between those two. I had to say, ‘hey, Rebel! He’s married. See this ring? This means something where I come from.’ No, just kidding. I wasn’t there when they did those scenes – in fact the first time that I saw those scenes were on the trailer, I was like ‘Oh, I didn’t read THAT in the script’. Rebel I’ve known for a long time, so I was very happy that she’s in the movie.”

Being on the movie set sounds like it was full of good times, with Isla telling us: “It was so much fun. This movie is hilarious. Sacha’s character that he’s created is so funny. We laughed all the time and y’know, he’s a perfectionist and stops at nothing to get the perfect joke and I learned a lot from working with him, which is always what you want to do when you’re on a job. You want to gain experiences and knowledge from the people around you and he’s definitely another level.”

Aww, this pair are our favourite A-list couple.

GRIMSBY is in cinemas now.
