Isla Fisher

ISLA FISHER IS FUNNY IN HER OWN WAY

Isla Fisher married Sacha Baron Cohen in 2010 and they have three children and seem quite happy in spite of his off-beat sense of humor. (Borat is the first comedy that made us laugh so hard we fell fall out of our theater seat.) Isla works steadily in Hollywood and Sacha has an interesting new role. He’s starring in Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming film The Trial of the Chicago 7. Sacha is playing Abbie Hoffman, Seth Rogan is Jerry Rubin, and Eddie Redmayne is Tom Hayden. It’s NOT a comedy.

THE UPS AND DOWNS OF SACHA BARON COHEN

Isla Fisher can’t suppress her smile, but Sacha Baron Cohen looks rather grim walking out of Elton John’s birthday party. Maybe he’s remembering his last movie The Brothers Grimsby, which was a massive flop. We were huge fans of Ali G and consider Borat the funniest movie ever made. What happened? Sacha’s prank interviews with earnest politicians etc were beyond hilarious but everyone recognizes him now so he can’t get away with it. Also we think his comedy became TOO slapstick and dumbed down – aimed at teen boys. If ONLY he could star in the Freddie Mercury story – but he disagreed with band members who wanted Freddie to die in the middle of the movie, leaving the band to carry on without him. It would have been the perfect comeback role.

A NO-PANTS PREMIER FOR SACHA BARON COHEN

It can’t be easy being married to Sacha Baron Cohen, but his adorable wife Isla Fisher has learned how to live with his assortment of appalling characters. In fact she insists that being married to Sacha is like winning the lottery! It helps that she’s a comic actress herself. Isla dressed UP for the premier of Sacha’s new film The Brothers Grimsby in London, but Sacha left their hotel in character, wearing a bathrobe. When he got to the red carpet he shed the robe and wore only his t-shirt, underpants and black socks. And that HAIRCUT.

THERE’S MORE TO SACHA BARON COHEN THAN JUST A SENSE OF HUMOR

Let’s not overlook the fact that Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat) and his wife Isla Fisher have donated a million dollars to help Syrian refugees. He ONLY allowed the charity to publicize that fact because it might stimulate others to donate. And they are right. We have YET to hear about any OTHER celebrities who have donated to the cause. Now maybe some others will think about contributing. The Cohens have three young kids and much of the donated money will be used to help the Syrian children.

DID SACHA BARON COHEN GET HIS WISH?

Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen’s wife Isla Fisher just gave birth to their third child today and so far they’re keeping the baby’s gender a secret! They have two daughters, Olive, 7, and Elula, 4, and were hoping for a little boy this time. We have a feeling it’s another girl or they’d be shouting it from the rooftops, but you never know – these two can be very secretive.

SACHA BARON COHEN AND ISLA FISHER: THE HOUSE THAT BORAT BUILT

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher finally got married in March, so it’s high time they moved into their Hollywood dream house. Sacha and Isla and their little girl Olive, 2, have been living in a home close to the street and they could hear the tourist busses stopping outside. That, and the fact that Isla is expecting another baby around the new year, caused them to buy this English country style house in the Hollywood Hills for over fifteen million dollars. It has seven bedrooms and baths and a detached movie theater. “Borat” and “Bruno” may be history, but they made a LOT of money for Cohen, who is now filming a family–mystery, “Hugo Cabret” directed by Martin Scorcese.

ISLA FISHER AND OLIVE PROWL THE FARMER'S MARKET

Sasha Baron Cohen’s fiancee Isla Fisher (Confessions of a Shopaholic) and baby Olive visited the Hollywood Farmer’s Market on Sunday morning. Apparently she cooks, because she bought apples, strawberries, bok choy, celery, and broccoli. Olive had fun meeting other kids and sampling fruits and she ended up with a balloon.
