Isla Fisher: Breastfeeding Is My Biggest Slimming Secret

isla1

With her new movie Rise of the Guardians hitting theaters this month, Isla Fisher covers the latest issue of Women’s Health. In a candid chat, the normally private actress opens up about converting to Judaism for her 2010 marriage to comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, her pregnancies with daughters Olive, 5, and Elula, 2, and a new concept to most of us: “vajacials.”

On body image, pregnancy and breastfeeding: ”I do watch my food. But I’ve been blessed in that I never had any body issues during pregnancy. I loved being able to eat whatever I wanted and the whole experience of giving life. And I never worried about losing the weight afterwards, because breastfeeding burns all the calories up so fast. Breastfeeding – that’s my big slimming secret! That and Spanx. Anytime anyone compliments me on my figure, I’m wearing my Spanx undies.”

On converting to Judaism before her 2010 marriage: ”It takes a couple of years of studying. I’ve always been really into family and food, so culturally it was the right fit for me.”

On vajacials: “I’m not actually very good at the maintenance thing. I don’t buff, exfoliate, pluck, rinse, moisturize, suck, bleach…whatever all those women do. I don’t have vajacials. Have you heard of those? It’s like a spa for your vagina!”

On being an Aussie in LA: ”We can all do the accent really easily. And we all look great in a bikini. Including Russell Crowe – no one pulls off a bikini like Russell. I am sort of friends with them all. I just did a movie with Hugh Jackman [Rise Of The Guardians], and I catch up with Naomi [Watts] whenever I’m in New York.”
