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.
