A couple of weeks ago Isla travelled to Las Vegas for Now You See Me press duties at the annual CinemaCon event. CinemaCon is an event for studios to promote their upcoming releases to movie theatres, and Isla and her Now You See Me co-star Morgan Freeman were on hand to introduce the trailer for their film. Isla looked pretty in a Chloe blouse and skirt, and nude Casadei heels. HQ photos are up in our Gallery courtesy of my good friend Rachel!
Hello fans! It’s been a busy month, so I’ve missed a few Isla bits here and there and will work to catch them up now. To start with, Isla paid a visit to SeaWorld in San Diego earlier this month, and posed for the cameras with a beautiful beluga whale. Check out the HQ photos in our Gallery (thanks Rachel!) and read a bit more about the visit below.
Isla Fisher takes her kids for a taste of the Arctic – in California
The actress took five-year-old Olive and two-year-old Elula to the attraction’s Wild Arctic display on Tuesday to see animals native to both the North and South Poles.
Among them were endangered Humboldt penguins and a beluga whale named Nanuq, who cheekily planted a kiss on the 37-year-old star as she posed for a picture beside his pool during her VIP behind-the-scenes tour.
Isla Fisher says breastfeeding is nature’s diet
Isla Fisher says breastfeeding is the best thing to do to lose your baby weight.
The ‘Great Gatsby’ star has two daughters, Olive, five, and Elula, two, with her husband Sacha Baron Cohen, and she insists she didn’t need to worry about how she was going to shift her extra pounds because nursing uses up so many calories.
In an interview with the new UK issue of HELLO! magazine, she said: “I believe in the power of breastfeeding. I know some women say it doesn’t help them lose the weight, but I think it burns an extra 250 calories a day.
“I breastfed for two years with both my children and by the end of that period I was back to normal. I swear by it. I’ve also been lucky in that I’ve been able to afford assistance with childcare, so I can go out for a run or a workout.”
Although Isla has been able to get her figure back she admits she relies on some extra help so she always looks great when she hits the red carpet.
The 37-year-old actress swears by the stomach-minimising power of Spanx to make her figure slender in any outfit.
Asked what her best-kept fashion secret is, she enthused: “Spanx! Never leave home without them. You can’t eat very much and they’re restrictive like a girdle, but, hey, you look really slender and slim.”
What made Isla Fisher fashion conscious?
Actress Isla Fisher says she wasn`t too much into fashion until she played the lead role in 2009 film ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’.
The actress said she was not concerned about what she wore until she played the character of Rebecca Bloomwood, a shopaholic who spends all her income on clothes, reports contactmusic.com.
Talking about her lack of fashion keenness, she said: “You should see me on the school run. I was never really that into fashion until I filmed `Confessions of a Shopaholic`.”
“After working every day with stylist Patricia Field, from `Sex and the City`, I went from wearing what was clean in my laundry basket to high-fashion designers”, she added.
The 37-year-old star has since updated her wardrobe with a selection of designers and high street favourites.
In an interview with Britain`s Hello! Magazine, she said: “I love Zac Posen and I`m a big fan of Vivienne Westwood, Stella McCartney and Philip Lim. I`m only tiny, so many labels don`t cater for me, but these designers don`t swamp me.
“And high street, I like so many. Topshop and Mango are fantastic for quick buys”, she added.
Carey Mulligan And Isla Fisher Plotted to Keep the Great Gatsby Costumes
Carey Mulligan hatched a plot with her The Great Gatsby co-star Isla Fisher to steal their elegant costumes from the set of the 1920s movie.
The two actresses were thrilled with the glamorous outfits they were required to wear for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming film, in which they play society women alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role.
The pair even conspired to keep the costumes for their private closets once the cameras stopped running, but their plan was foiled.
Fisher tells British magazine Hello!, “I think we were all so enamoured with the costumes and sets that we wanted to hang around even when we weren’t shooting.
“Carey and I were plotting how to steal our costumes and sneak them off set. Sadly, that didn’t work out too well. But they were all great. I had a really great time”.
Vogue Australia have dedicated a number of pages to The Great Gatsby in its current May issue, with a feature showing behind the scenes of the making of the film, and a second feature looking at the cast and their costumes. There is only one photo of Isla as Myrtle, but it’s a great shot, and you can now see it in our Gallery. See the rest of the Gatsby spreads (nothing further of Isla) here.
I’ve also come across another photo from this same promotional photoshoot, and have added that to our Gallery too.
Isla brightens up the May issue of US Fitness magazine, with a brand new interview and photoshoot! The photoshoot is fun and colourful, and I love the honest interview in which Isla talks about her body and what she does to stay in shape. She also shares her exercise playlist with the magazine.
The magazine also features the first still of Isla in The Great Gatsby, as well as a new still from Now You See Me.
Check out the photo coverage in our Gallery, and you can read the interview there, on our Press page, or at FitnessMagazine.com.
Be sure to pick up a copy of this magazine if you can!
“For me, so much about life is acceptance. You can look in the mirror and find a million things wrong with yourself. Or you can look in the mirror and think, I feel good, I have my health, and I’m so blessed. That’s the way I choose to look at it. I don’t need to be perfect. I’m doing just fine.”
