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: Ã¢â¬ËIt takes a couple of years of studying. IÃ¢â¬â¢ve always been really into family and food, so culturally it was the right fit for me.Ã¢â¬â¢
Her early career: Ã¢â¬ËAfter doing that [Wedding Crashers], I had 12 months where I was auditioning three times a day and I didnÃ¢â¬â¢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 IÃ¢â¬â¢d got any of them, I wouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t be where I am today. I never had the chutzpah to just come to LA and make it. I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t have that confidence. IÃ¢â¬â¢m always surprised when I get a job. I never saw this in my horizon.Ã¢â¬â¢
On body image, weight and pregnancy: Ã¢â¬ËI do watch my food. But IÃ¢â¬â¢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 Ã¢â¬â thatÃ¢â¬â¢s my big slimming secret! That and Spanx. Anytime anyone compliments me on my figure, IÃ¢â¬â¢m wearing my Spanx undies.Ã¢â¬â¢
Vajacials!!! Ã¢â¬ËIÃ¢â¬â¢m not actually very good at the maintenance thing. I donÃ¢â¬â¢t buff, exfoliate, pluck, rinse, moisturise, suck, bleachÃ¢â¬Â¦whatever all those women do. I donÃ¢â¬â¢t have vajacials. Have you heard of those? ItÃ¢â¬â¢s like a spa for your vagina!Ã¢â¬â¢
Playing a cokehead in The Bachelorette: Ã¢â¬ËI had to ask my friends, Ã¢â¬ËWhatÃ¢â¬â¢s cocaine like?Ã¢â¬â¢ And they all thought I was on it already because I talk so much and am so hyperactive!Ã¢â¬â¢
Being an Aussie in LA: Ã¢â¬ËWe can all do the accent really easily. And we all look great in a bikini. Including Russell Crowe Ã¢â¬â 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 IÃ¢â¬â¢m in New York.Ã¢â¬â¢
On Johnny Depp: Ã¢â¬ËHeÃ¢â¬â¢s like a magical creature Ã¢â¬â incredibly funny, clever and nice. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s sort of as if heÃ¢â¬â¢s come from another planet.Ã¢â¬â¢
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!ÃÂ Just know that Isla isn’t having any of it…and that her slimming secret is breastfeeding and spanx!
