I have no idea if there is any truth to this article, especially as Isla and Sacha are such private people. But since there is not a whole lot going on in the Isla world at the moment, I thought I’d post anyhow.
Sacha Baron Cohen and fiancee Isla Fisher have been forced to postpone their wedding over religious issues, MailOnline has learned.
The Hollywood-based couple, who welcomed a daughter last year, originally planned to tie the knot later this summer.
But they have decided to delay the nuptials because Isla, 32, has yet to convert to the Ali G star’s faith of Judaism.
A source said: ‘Isla was supposed to spend her time after giving birth hard at work on her Torah studies, and that’s gone far slower than expected.
‘It’s very much frustrated her future in-laws, especially Sacha’s parents, who were really hoping for a wedding this summer.’
The source added: ‘Right now there’s no wedding date set because Isla hasn’t fully converted yet, and even though she’s working at it part time, she’s are far from being close to complete with her studies.’
Isla, who has spent most of this summer filming her upcoming project Confessions of a Shopaholic, is said to have a tense relationship with Sacha’s mother, Daniella, who is Jewish.
The source said: ‘What made relations difficult between Isla and Sacha’s mother is that she really wanted Isla to spend more time with the baby and their family in England instead of being hasty and returning to work so quickly.
‘Now that Isla’s done shooting, she’s in the awkward position of making up for lost time.’
To this end, the Australian-born actress, who found fame in Home And Away in the Nineties, is spending increasing amounts of time with her in-laws in Britain, in an apparent effort to endear herself to them.
Meanwhile the notoriously reclusive Baron Cohen, 36, is patiently playing peacemaker between his wife and mother.
Instead of wedding preparations, he has channelled his energies into work, chalking up long house on his new reality-based film Bruno, which has nearly completed filming and will be released worldwide next summer.
The source said: ‘Sacha is not as worried about the relationship between his parents and Isla as everyone else is because he’s extremely devoted to her and their child.
‘He also believes that putting too much pressure on Isla is only going to make the wedding happen later rather than sooner.
‘He is happy taking his time to get married the same way he was happy having a long engagement.
‘But in the meantime Isla’s had to endure a lot of awkward moments with Sacha’s mother, who just doesn’t seem to understand her future daughter-in-law’s driver to become a big star.’
For Isla’s part, the actress is said to be looking forward to becoming a Cohen, even if her mother-in-law is fostering family drama.
The source said: ‘No matter what Sacha’s mother throws at her, Isla isn’t going to be scared away from the relationship or the family.
‘You really get the sense that her devotion to Sacha is total, even if she’s stalled a little bit on her Jewish studies.
‘She loves sharing her life with this guy.’
