Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Isla: (defending her film Confessions of a Shopaholic) I do think this film gives out a good message. I think the message is about consumption and debt and it is something we are all learning about at the moment. Obviously the movie was set in a different economic period but it is a redemption story and my character Rebecca Bloomwood learns her lesson.

    • Isla: (on wearing five-inch heels while filming Confessions Of A Shopaholic to help her get into character) I thought, there's something funny about a shopaholic buying ridiculously high heels and tottering through the comedy. I thought it would be amusing. It was less amusing, actually, when I had to do it every day!

    • Isla: (following the birth of baby Olive) I definitely feel sexier after having Olive because even though everything's going south and essentially ruined, I feel like I'm a real women now. I'm a mum. I love being a mum, just love it.

    • Isla: (A few months after the birth of her first child, Olive) I love it when a beautiful designer dresses me. But these days, it's more like getting in the car and realising the burp cloth is still on my left shoulder.

    • Isla: (after getting engaged to Sacha Baron Cohen) All I know is that I've ruled out wearing fairy wings. When I was nine I wanted to get married in fairy wings, and now I realize that's not cool anymore.

    • Isla: (on writing and acting) I really love creating characters and I love following a structure. It's exciting, writing. Acting, you're told where to stand, what to say and you're always being cut out of the exciting bit, where you could go anywhere and do anything with any character.

    • Isla: (On doing the film "Definitely, Maybe") I loved the idea of doing a romantic comedy that wasn't formulaic and glossy. It felt like real people getting involved at different stages of their lives, and how important timing is.

    • Isla: I couldn't marry someone who doesn't have the same sense of humour as me. Humour's really important - it's the most important quality in a person.

    • Isla: It was great having red hair as a kid, because I had something to blame my temper on. Now I go for the same colour palette as Conan O'Brien. I did dye it blonde once, but it backfired, as I had nothing to blame my temper on anymore!

    • Isla: (revealing she would never work with fiancé Sacha Baron Cohen) God, no! I mean, how successful are married working relationships? Nicole and Tom split up after Eyes Wide Shut ... I feel like working together is the kiss of death.

    • Isla: When we met, Sacha [Baron Cohen] kept saying, 'Stand up, stand up.' And I said, 'I am.' Height doesn't matter - I'm so small, I'm a circus freak.

    I have only ever seen Isla Fisher in Weddish Crashers and now that I realise it, Scooby Doo. According to my memmory she wedded Sasha Barron Cohen in the last year or so. She is a great acrtress, incredibly funny so it would be nice to see her in alot more.
