Isla Fisher - "Details" September 2007
Isla Fisher, the soon-to-be Mrs. Borat, is the star of the upcoming film Hot Rod and is featured in the September 2007 issue of Details magazine.
On being female and funny: “The reality is, for women in comedy, there aren’t many opportunities to be the funny one. There aren’t scripts written. If you want to be challenged and do the work you want, you have to create the material yourself.”
On traveling around the country with fiance Sacha Baron Cohen during the filming of Borat: “Instead of ‘Hey, Honey, did you pick up the dry cleaning?’ it was ‘Did you get beaten up? Are you getting sued? Is there a warrant out for your arrest?’” (Then she catches herself. She places her small hands flat on the blue tabletop and leans forward. “I know I brought it up,” she almost whispers, “but I don’t want to talk about my relationship.” You get the sense that the regular person in her would love to chat about it, but the rising celebrity in her knows she shouldn’t.)
Her take on past acting roles: “I’ve played some pretty wackadoodle people. I really hope that I’m not channeling any subconscious ideas about myself.”
