Woooahh, more fantastic Fisher news – Isla is on the cover of the new December issue of Australian In Style magazine! Albeit slightly in disguise – I sense a bit of photoshopping going on? Still, Isla wears a gorgeous dress by J’Aton Couture on the cover, and it is so great to see her on the cover of another big magazine, so we give major props to In Style for that!
The magazine is on news-stands now, so make sure you pick up a copy. Highlights from the interview can be read below, and you can see the cover in our Gallery. I’ll be on the lookout for scans, and if anyone can help me out with providing them that would be fabulous
InStyle cover girl: Isla Fisher
Unassuming and playful, Isla Fisher has never lost her delightful Aussie charm, despite being based overseas for the better part of a decade. Together with her husband, comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, and their two daughters, Olive, 5, and Elula, 2, Fisher splits her time between LA and London. This month she talks to InStyle about her new role in the wickedly funny comedy Bachelorette, and being one half of one of Hollywood’s most intriguing power couples.
In movies like Wedding Crashers, Confessions of a Shopaholic and now Bachelorette, you consistently play extreme women. What draws you to these manic roles?
“I played a bipolar nymphomaniac in Wedding Crashers and now I’m playing a coke whore. I’m just trying to make my dad proud [laughs]. Truthfully, I’ve always enjoyed playing characters that are unusual people. There’s a bunch of actors who can play normal people better than I can. I enjoy it more when I can play someone who exists in a heightened reality, someone a little more wild.”
Whilst browsing YouTube for new stuff, I came across these clips of Isla on the UK quiz show Blankety Blank way back in the 90′s. She was one of several celebrity guests on the panel of the first episode in ’98. This is such a great old find, and I love seeing Isla’s old appearances from the 90′s.
Over the past week or so I’ve been adding various additional HQ appearance photos to our Gallery, some of which are HQ versions of pictures we previously had, others are new. The update includes half of the Bachelorette New York premiere pictures being replaced with HQs, a few additional press conference HQs, and a handful more HQs from one of my favourite Isla looks, the Wedding Crashers New York premiere. Click the Last Uploads link below to see them all – as of right now they go back to page 6.
I still have some additional photos from the Rango Los Angeles and London premieres, then all the appearance HQs I have will be uploaded
EDITED: I have persevered and finished adding the rest of the HQ photos I have from the Rango promotional events in Los Angeles and London! Isla looks fantastic at both, as you probably remember, but the Los Angeles premiere look is definitely one of my all-time favourite looks from her. Again, most of these additional photos are HQ replacements of pictures we previously had in a smaller resolution.
Bachelorette was released in Australia last Thursday, and it did very well at the box office over the weekend, entering the Top 10 at #2! Congrats to the cast and crew
Argo continues to thrill Aussie audiences
BEN Affleck’s thriller Argo has held onto its No.1 spot in Australian cinemas for a second week.
Taking more than $1.813 million at the box office, the true story about efforts to smuggle Americans out of Iran during the hostage drama of 1979, was clearly the favourite movie at the weekend, according to figures released by the Motion Picture Distributors Association of Australia.
Coming in second was the new US comedy Bachelorette, which stars Aussies Rebel Wilson and Isla Fisher along with US stars Kirsten Dunst and Lizzy Caplan. Bachelorette, which is about a night before the wedding that goes wrong, took $841,263 on its debut weekend.
Another newcomer End of Watch, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena, debuted at No.3, earning $738,324 at the box office.
Taken 2 was pushed down to fourth place, but in four weeks the film has taken more than $18 million at Australian cinemas, while Paranormal Activity 4 sits at fifth place.
Digital Pass $1 for first 28 Days
French comedy/drama The Intouchables continues its popularity at Aussie cinemas. A true story based on a friendship between a wealthy quadriplegic and his charismatic ex-con carer, the film sits at sixth place after five weeks in cinemas.
The screen version of Housos vs Authority debuted at seventh place, while sci-fi thriller Dredd finished eighth.
Tim Burton’s black-and-white animation Frankenweenie sits at ninth, while Oliver Stone’s drug-dealing drama Savages fell four places to 10th.
