Today we’ve added over 1,300 HD screencaptures from Isla’s 2020 comedy Blithe Spirit. This was a fun film with a great cast – we enjoyed seeing Isla play the serious character, but injecting some comedy into it! It’s an easy watch, and we’d recommend to Isla fans 🙂
Isla graces the cover of the new June issue of Marie Claire Australia, and wow, what a stunning photoshoot!! Isla looks incredible in the new photoshoot, and in the interview she talks about Blithe Spirit, her family, and moving back to Australia. Unfortunately the full interview is not available online yet, but we will have scans from the magazine for you very soon. The cover and photoshoot can be seen in our Gallery, and the magazine is on Aussie news-stands now.
Exclusive: Isla Fisher Opens Up About Kids, Comedy & Coming Home
From Summer Bay soap star to Hollywood heavyweight, Isla Fisher has lived most of her life under the media spotlight. But when it comes to her family - and the three children she shares with actor and satirist Sacha Baron Cohen – she’s fiercely protective. “Motherhood is actually my favourite topic – but I keep it private,” she tells marie claire on the set of our June cover shoot. “I think all parents are trying to protect their kids, especially in the social media age. I want our children to have a normal childhood – being able to play outside without pressure or scrutiny. All kids have the right to just be kids, and I would never sell a film or magazine by speaking about [mine].”
Isla appeared on Aussie news/entertainment show The Project a couple of days ago to promote Blithe Spirit. She chatted about the movie, being recognised as Amy Adams, and whether Borat took his look from “Poppa Fish”.
Isla is on the cover of Aussie Sunday newspaper lifestyle magazine Stellar this weekend (March 21st edition). The feature is to promote Blithe Spirit, and Isla also talks about how she picks her projects these days, her family and privacy, social media, her husbands roles, and being a ‘power couple’. Alongside the new interview is a brand new photoshoot, too. Read the interview below, and find the photos in our Gallery:
“I still think I should be cleaning the pool – not getting to lie by it”
Fisher and Baron Cohen certainly have all the makings of a celebrity power couple, but the mere mention of the term only makes her feel uneasy.
Despite her three-decade career, Australian actor Isla Fisher remains as awestruck by her success as she does co-stars like Dame Judi Dench, who made her feel like “jelly on legs”.
She’s also mystified about being known as a power couple with husband Sacha Baron Cohen – although she does “adore” Borat.
After a year that found her wearing almost nothing but trackies and sports bras, Isla Fisher finally saw glamour make its return to her wardrobe at the start of March.
On the first day of the month, she put on an Alex Perry couture gown to attend a virtual Golden Globes ceremony alongside her husband Sacha Baron Cohen, who picked up two gongs for his latest Borat film.
“I’ve really enjoyed the feeling after lockdown and COVID to get a dress on and get my hair and make-up done,” Fisher tells Stellar two days later, as she lounges around in a Gucci jumpsuit for our photo shoot. “It felt fun. And what I love about Alex Perry is that for anyone who has given birth, he makes you feel like you stepped off a runway.”
Isla and Leslie Mann appeared on The Drew Barrymore Show today to promote their new movie Blithe Spirit. As well as the movie, they also talked about how long they’ve known each other, their funny husbands, their love of comedy, and haunted happenings on the set, before playing a game of ‘face the fun facts’:
ET Canada had an interview with Isla and Leslie Mann to promote Blithe Spirit on Friday – they chatted about being able to speak the dialogue in the film, seances and whether they believe in ghosts, and fun hobbies they’ve picked up during quarantine. Isla also talked about how proud she is of her husband’s record number of Golden Globe nominations this year!

Empire interviewed Isla for one of their recent podcasts – she talked about the novels she wrote as a teenager, Blithe Spirit, how she got into comedy, Hot Rod, working with Judi Dench, and which Australian actor is the worst at doing accents. Have a listen below (Isla starts at about 21 minutes):
Empire Podcast #448: Isla Fisher, Rose Matafeo
This week’s Empire Podcast goes Down Under — metaphorically speaking, of course — as Chris Hewitt has fun-filled chats with two wonderful Antipodean actors. First off, there’s Isla Fisher, the Australian star of Blithe Spirit, who tells Chris all about her affinity for accents, Hot Rod, and working with Judi Dench, while Chris makes an impromptu purchase. Then Chris has a chat, and a Kurt Russell quiz, with Baby Done star, the New Zealander comedian and actor, Rose Matafeo.
Then, in the virtual podbooth, Chris is joined by Helen O’Hara, James Dyer and, for the first time this year, Amon Warmann, as they exchange facts in The Three Fact Structure, talk about actors and directors who deserve a McConaissance, discuss the week’s movie news including that big MCU rumour, and review Baby Done, MLK/FBI, Outside The Wire, and The White Tiger. A jam-packed show, and no mistake. Crikey! Enjoy.
