Confessions of a Shopaholic star Isla Fisher enjoyed a sunny day in the south of France with her daughters Olive, 4, and Elula, 1 1/2, on Wednesday (May 16). The trio were all smiles as they went on rides and played at a park in the idyllic town of Juan-les-Pins.
Isla and the girls are in town supporting papa, funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen, who is currently promoting his new film, The Dictator. “I love it,” Isla recently told BBC of her husband’s latest flick. “It’s the funniest movie he’s made, I think by a long way, and it’s also really sweet. There’s a love story and I like to see him, like in Hugo, showing that side of him, creatively it’s great.”
While Isla admits “it’s not a normal life to lead,” she does love living it with her funny hubby and their gorgeous girls.
Obviously it’s not pleasant to say to your husband – instead of ‘Did you pick up the dry cleaning?’ or ‘Did you pick up someone from a play date?’ – ‘Oh wow are we getting sued? Has anyone put a death threat on us?'” (The Borat star received death threats due to controversy over his gay fashionista character Bruno.)
Does she ever want to censor his comedy?
Oh, of course,” Isla reveals. “There’s a lot of, ‘Oh my gosh, no you cannot say that! We’re friends with that person, blah, blah, blah, no!'”
One bonus for Isla during the taping of The Dictator? She did get her husband back at the end of a day’s filming. “The good news is the beard came off in the evening,” she says. “So I did not have to look at the beard, unlike the Borat handlebar moustache which I was saddled with for months and months.”
Has she ever had any cringing moments watching her husband’s controversial films with the in-laws or her parents?
No, luckily no one ever really says anything, what they really think,” she admits.
Isla and Sacha are expected to attend the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.View Slideshow »»
