Photos Of Isla Fisher From InStyle Magazine, And Extracts From Her Interview

Isla Talks Love, Lawsuits and Life Lessons

Isla Fisher is starring as fashion fan Becky Bloomwood in Confessions Of A Shopaholic (out February 20) — the big screen adaptation of the very funny Shopaholic series of novels by Sophie Kinsella. She sat down with InStyle magazine to talk about her man Sacha Baron Cohen and their baby Olive, Hollywood, exercise, and of course, fashion. Here's some extracts from her interview:

  • On Hollywood: "I met with one big agent and he goes to me, ‘You are so talented’. I said, ‘Oh, gosh, thank you. What have you seen me in?’ And he said, ‘Nothing’. It was my first real taste of Hollywood."
  • On not being an "exercise person": "You know the point where somebody working out starts to feel tired? Apparently, you get this second wind and you really start to sweat, and that’s when you get addicted. But for me, that’s the point I get off and have a cup of tea and a slice of cake."
  • On Sacha Baron Cohen: "Most people can say to their partners, ‘How was your day at work? What time are you home for dinner?’ I have to say, ‘Are you getting sued? Have you been arrested? Are you in jail? Are all your limbs still attached?’ He has more lawsuits than the Baldwin brothers."
  • On love and converting to Judaism: "Love is an incredible gift if you’re lucky enough to receive it and give it, and I think having a baby is another whole level of love. I think it’s great to have those boundaries and have one day that’s sacred where we don’t talk about work. And I love having more structure and rituals in my life – it’s really enriching."

To find out what Isla has to say about her fashion disaster at the Golden Globes last year and the paparazzi, just

  • On fashion catastrophes: "At the Golden Globes last year, I wore this beautiful midnight blue Hervé Léger dress with a fitted bodice and a huge skirt — it was incredible, like a princess meets a slut. But someone stepped on my train and ripped the back. There’s a classic shot where I’m smiling really serenely over my shoulder, but my tush is totally exposed! The Sun called me 'Isla Flasher', but what can you do?"
  • On photographers in LA: "With the paparazzi, it’s really difficult. You make decisions during your day based around how much privacy you can get for your child, and when you’re protecting a tiny person from scary men swarming around them with massive black things in their face, screaming their name, it takes on a whole new thing."

Wow--She describes her dress as "like a princess meets a slut" and then jokes, "There’s a classic shot where I’m smiling really serenely over my shoulder, but my tush is totally exposed!" She must have been busy having a bikini wax the day her conversion class talked about modesty as a Jewish virtue. It's great she "loves having more structure and rituals in her life," because she really seems to be missing the point otherwise.

im excited about the film too, but it so isnt representative of the books, and I wish it was. Its far too American, and I just wish they had stayed true to the books - it seems like a completely different story altogether. I think when I see it I'm going to try and forget about the books, because they are so good on their own, i dont want them ruined!

I am so excited to see this movie - I think I'm going to take my flatmates and make it a girly night out! I read the book on a 16 hour plane ride over the holidays and it definitely made me laugh out loud.
