Isla Fisher is notoriously private about her marriage to Sacha Baron Cohen, and so it’s a rare surprise when either of them open up in interviews about their relationship together. Fisher is on the cover of the new issue of Women’s Health Magazine, and she opens up about her marriage, what a ‘vajacial’ is, and her fellow Australians in Hollywood.
When talking about her wedding to husband Sacha Baron Cohen and converting to Judaism, Fisher says, “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.”
She also talks about her career in the early days, after ‘Wedding Crashers’, saying, “After doing that [Wedding Crashers], I had 12 months where I was auditioning three times a day and I didn’t get a single job. That was a real low point. But with hindsight, those movies turned out to be awful, so I dodged a bullet. If I’d got any of them, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I never had the chutzpah to just come to LA and make it. I didn’t have that confidence. I’m always surprised when I get a job. I never saw this in my horizon.”
Also, what is a ‘vajacial’? Fisher says, “I’m not actually very good at the maintenance thing. I don’t buff, exfoliate, pluck, rinse, moisturise, 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!”
She also talks about Aussies 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.”
