Another video from a book publisher, introducing Mazy The Movie Star:
Isla is on the cover of the December issue of Australian Women’s Weekly, looking stunning in a new photoshoot! It’s a good interview too – Isla talks about what she loves about reading and storytelling, her childhood, influences, her Mazy and Marge book series’, The Great Gatsby, moving back to Australia, her upcoming projects, and she also briefly mentions Grimsby and Greed.

“I get nervous talking about it”: Why Isla Fisher keeps her marriage close to her heart
”I have four other human beings [in my life] and I need to keep everybody happy.”
Isla Fisher is searching for her family’s passports, and their frequent flyer numbers. There was a time when they’d have been at her fingertips, but it’s been two whole years now that she, husband Sacha Baron Cohen and their tribe of three have been largely settled in Australia, and she knows those pesky passports are around here somewhere, but where?
You would think there would be someone who could do this for her. You would think that one of Australia’s most successful and gifted actors (and her brilliant, hilarious husband) would have a retinue of people keeping track of passports. But not so. The Baron Cohen/Fisher household seems to be a very hands-on operation.
Perhaps that’s in part because this comedic bombshell (whose box office hits include Wedding Crashers, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby and the 2020 Edward Hall remake Noël Coward’s Blithe Spirit) insists that the most important role in her life is motherhood. And her favourite aspect of that role – the one that fills her with pure joy – is inventing tall tales, creating characters and funny voices, and acting out classic stories to amuse her children.
Isla is featured in the November issue of UK magazine Red, to promote Mazy The Movie Star. Isla talks about her new book, plus comedy and being funny, Wedding Crashers, clown school, her favourite British TV comedies, Home & Away, writing, and her favourite projects she’s worked on (Gatsby and Wolf Like Me). No new photos unfortunately – they’ve reused the gorgeous shoot from Marie Claire in 2021. Find the scans in our Gallery:
