Here are Isla’s official studio-released press interviews for The Great Gatsby … first one is just her, the second two are with Joel Edgerton:
Check out Isla on the cover of the new issue of UK Easy Living magazine! It is once again a new photoshoot and interview, and the photos released so far are just beautiful. The cover is to promote The Great Gatsby.
Read quotes from the interview further down this post, and find the cover and first two pictures from the shoot in our Gallery. I’ll be on the lookout for scans, of course.
More event and tv appearance photos coming tomorrow!
It’s a situation actresses wish for – to be told they need to gain weight for a movie role.
So when Isla Fisher was given free reign to pile on the pounds to play Myrtle in The Great Gatsby, she made sure she did so by chowing down on her most desired sweet treat – cupcakes.
Isla admitted to Easy Living magazine that gaining the 10lbs she needed to for the role was easier than she thought it would be.
She said: ‘I was breastfeeding, so I had a little flesh of my own, I am proud to admit, but I also gained 10lb, just by following my natural instincts.’
Asked what she meant by that, Isla replied: ‘Cupcakes!’
After taping her appearance on Good Morning America yesterday, Isla attended a cocktail party for the opening of a collaborative exhibition project between Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada of Gatsby themed dresses. Isla looked super chic in a little dress by Prada, and posed at the party with Catherine Martin, Baz Luhrmann, Katy Perry, Jennifer Meyer and Carey Mulligan. The first HQ photos from the party can be seen in our Gallery, and there are more pics to come in the next few days. Scroll on down this post for an article about the party.
It is the world premiere of The Great Gatsby in New York City tonight – so exciting! Isla is scheduled to attended, so we will bring you full coverage right here tomorrow

From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role. “The Great Gatsby” follows would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles. Oscar(R) nominee Luhrmann directed the film in 3D from a screenplay co-written with frequent collaborator Craig Pearce, based on Fitzgerald’s novel. The film stars Academy Award(R) nominee DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Oscar(R) nominee Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, Jason Clarke and Elizabeth Debicki. Luhrmann produced, along with Academy Award(R) winner Catherine Martin, Academy Award(R) winner Douglas Wick, Lucy Fisher and Catherine Knapman. The executive producers are Academy Award(R) winner Barrie M. Osborne, Shawn “JAY Z” Carter, and Bruce Berman. Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, in association with A&E Television, a Bazmark/Red Wagon Entertainment Production, a Film by Baz Luhrmann, “The Great Gatsby.” Opening May 10, 2013, the film will be distributed in 3D and 2D by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.
