Isla Fisher is on the cover of Women’s Health this month, and gives the mag a VERY colorful interview, to boot!
Here are some highlights of the interview, via Celebitchy:
Isla on converting to Judaism before her 2010 marriage to Sacha Baron Cohen: ‘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.’
Her early career: ‘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.’
On body image, weight and pregnancy: ‘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.’
Vajacials!!! ‘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!’
Playing a cokehead in The Bachelorette: ‘I had to ask my friends, ‘What’s cocaine like?’ And they all thought I was on it already because I talk so much and am so hyperactive!’
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.’
On Johnny Depp: ‘He’s like a magical creature – incredibly funny, clever and nice. It’s sort of as if he’s come from another planet.’
First off, I LOVE the idea that women are spending money on a “vajacial.” We’re still in a recession, and things like these are still on the market! Amazing! Just know that Isla isn’t having any of it…and that her slimming secret is breastfeeding and spanx!
