Isla Fisher Covers 'Fashion' May 2013
Here’s what the 37-year-old The Great Gatsby actress had to share with the mag:
On what she and her husband Sacha Baron Cohen find funny: “Subverting the truth is the funniest thing of all. We laugh about that all the time. It works best when you hit at something that is happening in the world and represent it in a surprising way. Lena Dunham is brilliant at it.”
On meeting her idol Goldie Hawn: “Goldie Hawn is my hero, I just think she is incredibly funny and I love her in every movie. I can’t help it. I just think she is fabulous.. It wasn’t a conversation, it was on a dance floor and she was dancing next to me so I saddled up to her doing some moves pretending it was just a natural progression in my dance moves and I kind of shimmied my shoulders at her for a smile and then shimmied away.”
On working with family: “I recently wrote a script with my mom—a thriller—just for fun because I enjoy writing so much. It has involved a lot of gin and tonic, a lot of giggling, a lot of late night emailing back and forth. I highly recommend actually doing something creative with a family member. When you get to know someone creatively you get to know a whole other side to them.”
