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