Hollywood hottie Isla Fisher is about to get a bump in her celebrity credit rating as she takes on the role of Becky Bloomwood in the upcoming adaptation of the best-selling “Confessions of a Shopaholic.” The fiancee of Sacha Baron Cohen stopped shopping long enough to talk to the UK’s “In Style” for its February edition.
Celebutopia brings you this exclusive sneak peek at what Fisher had to say:
“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 being funny
“I was getting rejected so much and Sacha said, ‘You’re so funny’, so that, coming from him. … I just think it’s the fact that I can juggle condiments for him.”
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 fashion catastrophes:
“At the Golden Globes last year, I wore this beautiful midnight blue Herve Leger 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 being a natural beauty
“I think nothing’s sexier than laughter lines. I think Lauren Hutton is beautiful and she’s natural. I haven’t done the white teeth – I haven’t really Americanised my look. But we’ll see what happens when you interview me in five years. Maybe I’ll be looking permanently surprised.”
“Confessions of a Shopaholic” is set for release Feb. 13.
