We reported last week that the two had a baby, but nobody knew the name, gender or birthday. But now, the cat’s out of the bad, and joins Olive, 7 and Elula, 4 in what seems to be a growing family. So what’s with all the names? Well, Isla’s dad’s name is Brian, but the Montgomery and Moses…outside of the Old Testament, you got me.
Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen are parents again!
The couple have welcomed their third child together, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm:
The Australian actress, 39, and Cohen, 43, were gearing up for baby No. 3. Fisher took some time off to focus on the pregnancy, even pulling out of the upcoming film Now You See Me: The Second Act.
“Family is 100 percent my top priority. So I’m much more comfortable doing supporting roles right now. And often,” the redhead told The Telegraph in 2013. “They’re the most interesting. You get to be a character actress.”
Work aside, Fisher did venture out to mingle with her famous pals the past couple of months. In February, she celebrated her 39th birthday by taking a gourmet cooking class with Cohen, Courteney Cox, Naomi Watts, and Liev Schreiber. That same month, Jennifer Aniston gave Fisher’s adorable baby bump a smooch at Vanity Fair’s Oscars afterparty.
Fisher and Cohen, who wed in March 2010, are already parents to daughters Olive, 7, and Elula, 4. I love how Isla embraces her role as both a mom and a character actress- both jobs will have you working for YEARS! : )
I’m so bummed about this news! I actually thought they began work on this film already, and it was a done deal!
Deadline is reporting that Sacha Baron Cohen has dropped out of the Freddie Mercury biopic. It was PERFECT casting, if you ask me. He could be Freddie’s TWIN! It would not have been much of a stretch at all to see Sacha as Eddie, and I think it could have really been amazing for his career! Sadly, we’re never going to see it. Cue music.
Sacha Baron Cohen is just not seeing eye to eye with the remaining members of Queen who have script and director approval over that biopic on iconic lead singer Freddie Mercury.
That film had Cohen circling the role but I’ve just learned he’s now pulled out. The reason is that the band wanted to make more of a PG movie about Queen while Cohen was counting on a gritty R-rated tell-all centered around the gifted gay singer.
Given the astonishing physical resemblance, it’s hard to imagine anyone else playing Freddie but Sacha. Cohen had brought in Peter Morgan to write and various directors including David Fincher and Tom Hooper to develop the project for himself. However, none were approved by the band.
Film is set at Sony Pictures and GK Films and Cohen has long been attached to play Mercury. But because of the dispute over ‘creative differences’ no formal offer could go out to Hooper who’d just worked with Sacha on Best Picture Oscar nominee Les Miserables. Graham King and Tim Headington are producing with Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal and Queen Films.
I’m not sure how this movie will be good anymore. How do you make a PG-rated movie about Queen? I think MANY more people would be drawn to an R-rated movie, especially one directed by Tom Hooper! I’m bummed we’re never going to see this.
Sacha Baron Cohen may have been the only exciting and/or interesting thing that happened during last night’s Oscars. The comedian shamelessly promoted his new movie ‘The Dictator’ while walking the red carpet. He spilled an urn full with fake ashed of Kim Jong Il all over Ryan Seacrest on live television.
At least Ryan has a good sense of humor about the whole thing.
