Isla Fisher Covers 'Cosmopolitan UK' July 2013

Isla Fisher is all about fun on the cover of Cosmopolitan UK‘s July 2013 issue, on newsstands June 4.

Here’s what the 37-year-old The Great Gatsby actress had to share with the mag:

On getting rejected by Sacha Baron Cohen‘s agent: “I really have had no help. In fact, the one time I did ask for help was after my agent in L.A. fired me. I was auditioning for all sorts of things but kept getting told ‘no,’ so she just fired me! So anyway, I said to Sacha, who was my boyfriend at the time, ‘Can you ask your agent if they’ll represent me?’ And his agent said, ‘No way.’ It was the only favor I’d ever asked, and I was like, ‘OK… great.’ But it spurred me on.”

On women helping women in Hollywood: “Women one hundred percent support each other in the movie industry. I auditioned for a movie recently and when I went in, the producer said he’d told one of its stars, Naomi Watts, that he was auditioning me and she’d said, ‘She’s so funny, she’s a great actress — you should hire her.’ What a lovely, kind and supportive thing to do for another woman,”

On being a working mom:
“It’s a myth that you can have it all. You can’t. But, more importantly, I don’t think you should want to. It sounds exhausting! I’m just dipping my toe back into work now. It’s a juggling act and I’m not particularly good at it; the balls are in the air. But my priority is always my family. Motherhood boils everything down to the essentials.”

    Isla’s stories get wilder all the time. First, the exaggerated stories about pregnancy weight gains, then the drowning story. Now we’re suppose to believe she’s had no help from Sacha. Perhaps one agent turned her down before Sacha did Borat, but I’m sure SBC’s name opens loads of doors that would otherwise be closed to her.

    She’s always teetering on the edge of stardom. She gets roles, but never really becomes an A-lister because the talent doesn’t match the opportunities. She’d have disappeared years ago without Sacha’s help.

    she’s really cute and seems down to earth.

  • tia

    she’s in the cover of a major magazine so she looks to be doing pretty well for herself.
    I’d be happy if I were her.
