Isla Fisher sits down for an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday (March 10) in Hollywood.
The 40-year-old actress opened up about helping her husband Sacha Baron Cohen sneak his Ali G costume into the Oscars and put it on in the bathroom.
“He said ‘I want to sneak in and do Ali G but I can’t find any of the costume on my body because they’re gonna put me through metal detectors and be ultra suspicious,’” she said. “’Sweetie, will you fit giant yellow glasses, a hat, a glove, and a beard inside your spanx?’”
Isla said that producers for the show were knocking on the bathroom door to get them to come out and she said Sacha was having stomach problems.
“I had to lie to everyone, which made me feel really guilty and then they gave me all these Tums, so I had to eat them so it wouldn’t look suspicious,” Isla said. “Then he popped out with full Ali G gear and bolted on stage with Olivia Wilde. I saw her face and she was like, ‘oy vey.’”
