Isla and Sacha previewed a scene from Grimsby for Courteney Cox and the Kardashians recently:

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher Dish on Their Movie Night With Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher don’t always have movie nights with the Kardashians, but it sure is fun when they do!

Earlier this week The Brothers Grimsby stars and real-life spouses headed over to Kris Jenner’s house to give Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Kourtney Kardashian an early screening of their new R-rated comedy. Momager Kris’ boyfriend Corey Gamble was also there for the star-studded get together, and so was Courteney Cox with her daughter Coco Arquette!

The Brothers Grimsby was a hit with the Kardashian-West gang, but we were all left wondering how the heck this movie night came together. Well, E! News’ Erin Lim caught up with the stars Thursday at the premiere of The Brothers Grimsby, and Isla explained just how organically one of her friends set the whole thing up.

“Well, I had never met them [the Kardashian-Jenner-West bunch] before, and my husband asked Courteney Cox—since our movie is so quintessentially English—do you know an average American family that can see it and tell us what it’s like?” she said. “Smash cut to the Kardashians in the living room!”

“They really laughed and they really loved the movie, so fingers crossed that everybody else likes it too,” added Isla. “Because, of all [Sacha’s] comic characters, I’ve gotta say that this one’s my favorite.”

Isla Fisher discusses her and Sacha Baron Cohen’s charity donation: ‘I wanted it to be private’

Isla Fisher has addressed the large charity donation she and husband Sacha Baron Cohen made last year.

The couple gave over £670,000 to charity over Christmas last year.

They donated £336,000 to The Sunday Times Christmas appeal to help children in Syria in the wake of a threatened measles outbreak there. They also gave the same amount to International Rescue Committee, run by David Miliband in New York.

Now Aussie actress Fisher has spoken about the generous donations, saying that although she would have preferred it kept out of the headlines, she is glad that the publicity has highlighted issues she cares deeply about.

She told Metro.co.uk: ‘I think that it’s been very hard watching the international community really do nothing about the Syria situation for a long time, so I was actually…when you make a donation you do want it to be private, but I think it’s important that we highlight the issues that are going on for children in Syria because it’s very serious.’

As posted about earlier, Isla and Sacha attended the BAFTA Awards in London this evening, and I’ve now added the first photos from the event to our Gallery. Isla wore a simple white dress by Stella McCartney, accessorising with a Roger Vivier clutch, make-up by Emma Day and hair by Kerry Warn for John Frieda – she looks so elegant and classy! It’s great to see the couple on the red carpet again together.

Check out our coverage within this post (and the previous) ….

Sacha Baron Cohen Says Borat Is Probably Wife Isla Fisher’s Least-Favorite Character: ‘She’s Had to Make Love to All of Them’

Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen were the picture of glamour when they walked the red carpet on Sunday for the BAFTA Awards.

The couple, who share three children, held hands outside London’s Royal Opera House in complimentary looks.

Fisher, 40, stunned in a simple, white curve-hugging Stella McCartney gown with her red hair swept into old hollywood curls. Cohen, 44, donned a dark suit with a black bow-tie and white pocket square.

While on the red carpet, Cohen joked with PEOPLE about how his real life compared to the glamorous red carpet.

“Yes every day when I’m in the shower there at least 15 cameras in there,” the actor told PEOPLE.

Last month, Isla and Sacha attended the BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards in Los Angeles, where Sacha was honoured with the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy. Isla looked absolutely gorgeous in a floor length white gown by Burberry with Kwiat jewellry, and she and Sacha look so happy together! I’ve now added a massive 192 HQ photos from the event to our Gallery for your viewing pleasure – there are lots of fabulous shots in there for you to enjoy.

The Britannia Awards: Sacha Baron Cohen

BAFTA Los Angeles presented Sacha Baron Cohen with a Britannia Award for comedy in 2013.

The Britannia Awards are BAFTA Los Angeles’ highest accolade, a celebration of achievements honoring individuals and companies that have dedicated their careers to advancing the entertainment arts. In 2013, actor, writer and producer Sacha Baron Cohen was honored with the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy.

The award was presented at the annual gala ceremony in November 9 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The presentation was made by actress Salma Hayek who described Sacha to have “consistently demonstrated total courage as an artist. He has literally risked his life to make us laugh.” Salma’s speech was followed by a rather shocking incident when Sacha took to the stage to accept his Britannia.

Amy Adams Doesn’t Get Why People Mistake Her for Isla Fisher

Nope, Amy Adams is not married to Sacha Baron Cohen. That’s Isla Fisher.

And it’s Fisher in Wedding Crashers, not Amy Adams.

While it seems perfectly reasonable to mix up the two redheaded bombshells – they have a similar look, they’re two years apart in age – Adams is 39 and Fisher is 37 – and an inch apart in height – Adams says she doesn’t understand why there’s any confusion.

“I get Isla Fisher all the time, still. And I know Isla, and for a while our kids went to the same dance school. When I’m with Isla, we both look at one another and … I get it but I don’t get it,” the actress tells Vanity Fair in their January cover story.

“But just like I tell her, it could be a lot worse. I could be mistaken for a lot worse people.”

Here’s a helpful hint: Adams is the one starring alongside Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale in American Hustle, out in theaters Dec. 13.

Earlier this month Isla popped up at the AFI Life Achievement Award Honoring actor/director/screenwriter/producer Mel Brooks. She was accompanied by her husband, and the couple smiled for cameras during the event. Even more exciting than that though (for me), was seeing Isla and Sacha with Martin Scorsese – what a picture!! Sacha previously worked with Scorsese on Hugo, and I hope that Isla too will have the chance to work with the director someday (soon). Isla was also snapped with writer/director Judd Apatow, and actor Cary Elwes. Style-wise, Miss Fisher opted for a sparkly black dress and blazer for the event. Check out the HQ pics in our Gallery.

I will catch up on missing Gatsby/Now You See Me interviews/videos/etc. asap in the coming weeks.

Isla Fisher: I battled shyness

Isla Fisher learned to laugh at herself to help her make friends when she was younger.

The redheaded star is known for playing loveable characters in romantic comedies such as Wedding Crashers and Confessions of a Shopaholic.

Off screen she is also famed for her wicked sense of humour, but Isla admits she hasn’t always been so bubbly.

“I went to something like six different schools before the age of 12, so I was always the new girl and had to make friends quickly,” she recalled to the UK edition of Cosmopolitan.

“It was difficult at the start because I was very bookish – I was literally sat in the corner reading books, with no friends. So I learnt to be funny and to take the p**s out of myself in order to ingratiate myself. I think it’s one of the best skills in life.”

Isla began her career on TV soap Home and Away and landed her first big movie role in 2002’s Scooby-Doo.

Now starring in movies such as Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, the 37-year-old is a firm believer in fate.

“I’ve had no helping hand in Hollywood. But in general I’ve found that when it comes to getting jobs, what’s meant for you can’t pass you by,” she explained.

“I’ve tried to follow that philosophy because otherwise you can drive yourself crazy when you’re out there presenting yourself and you get so much rejection.”

Isla brightens up the cover of the July issue of UK Cosmopolitan magazine, with another brand new photoshoot and interview! Check out quotes from the interview and a behind the scenes video below, and find scans from the spread in our Gallery. Needless to say, Isla looks fantastic in the photos, and it is once again great to see her on the cover of a big magazine!



Pick up a copy of Cosmopolitan now.

Cosmo also have an article about how to get Isla’s hair here.

Isla Fisher opens up to Cosmo!

Star of The Great Gatsby, and Now You See Me, Isla Fisher is the perfect Cosmo cover star! In the July issue she reveals all about the rejection she experienced at the start of her career, and how she overcame it.

You’d think having a famous husband like Sacha Baron Cohen, you’d be sorted in Hollywood. But apparently not! Isla revealed exclusively to Cosmo: “I really have had no help. In fact, the one time I did ask for help was after my agent in LA fired me. I was auditioning for all sorts of things but kept getting told ‘no’, so she just fired me! So anyway, I said to Sacha, who was my boyfriend at the time, ‘Can you ask your agent if they’ll represent me?’ And his agent said, ‘No way.’ It was the only favour I’d ever asked, and I was like, ‘OK… great’. But it spurred me on.”

Looking at Isla now – especially in this month’s Cosmo – you’d never realise she was once a wallflower. Speaking about her childhood, she said: “I went to something like six different schools before the age of 12, so I was always the new girl and had to make friends quickly. It was difficult at the start because I was very bookish – I was literally sat in the corner reading books, with no friends. So I learnt to be funny and to take the piss out of myself in order to ingratiate myself. I think it’s one of the best skills in life.”
