I have a really great rare treat for you today! I’ve just come across some HQ photos of Isla at an unknown event in Sydney in the early-mid 90′s that I’ve never seen before. She’s wearing a shiny gold/yellow top and has her unmistakeable sassy grin on full display! I love these photos, and was so happy to find them and share them with you.

These are real rare treats, so I hope you enjoy them :-D

First trailer for “The Great Gatsby”

May 23rd 2012 • by Jess • 1 Comment »"The Great Gatsby", Gallery Updates, Videos

The first official trailer for The Great Gatsby has been released today! It looks suitably lavish, mysterious and intense, I think, and the cast look brilliant. I’m even more excited for this film now! However, I don’t see Isla as Myrtle in this trailer … did you? Big thanks to my friend Lindsey for pointing out Isla in the trailer to me! You have to watch very closely, she’s only shown twice for the tiniest flash. I’ve added HD screencaptures to the Gallery.

You can watch and/or download the trailerin HD at Apple.com. An official website for the film has also been launched at thegreatgatsbymovie.com. And alongside all this new material is the first official poster, which I will add to our Gallery in a minute (see our ‘Last Uploads’ on the sidebar).

Props to Carey Mulligan Online for the heads-up on the trailer. Watch the trailer below, and leave a comment below if you want to say something about it…

Isla cut from Dictator

May 22nd 2012 • by Jess • No Comments"The Great Gatsby", Career, News & Gossip, Personal

Isla Fisher has revealed she had a role in her husband Sacha Baron Cohen’s new movie but it didn’t make the final cut.

The Perth-raised actress, who is in Cannes to promote her latest film, the DreamWorks animation Rise of the Guardians, was meant to play a Russian prostitute in Cohen’s comedy The Dictator. However, as often happens to the best of actors, footage of the 36-year-old funny girl ended up on the cutting room floor.

“And (Sacha) still expected me to do press for the movie,’ Fisher jokes.

“No really, it didn’t work for the movie. I have been through a thousand edits and I have no ego when it comes to this stuff.”

Fisher recalls the last time she was in Cannes when her husband strutted on to the beach in a mankini to promote his film Borat.

“I am happier to see him on a camel,” she says, referring to Cohen’s publicity stunt last week when he chose an unusual animal to take for a morning stroll.

It was one of a number of stunts Cohen has pulled while promoting his new movie around the world, including during his visit to Australia earlier this month.

Isla is still in Cannes, and last night attended a Women In Film party hosted by Calvin Klein. Isla looked cute in a little blue dress (probably by Calvin Klein?), and according to reports, spent most of the night with her good friend Naomi Watts! The two some posed together, and LaineyGossip.com says that they “came in like besties” and “were close all night” – so cute!

Photos from the event can be seen in our Gallery:

Reports from yesterday’s “Rise Of The Guardians” Q&A

Cannes 2012: DreamWorks Animation Promotes ‘Rise of the Guardians’

Alec Baldwin, Chris Pine and Isla Fisher, who lent their voices to the film about iconic figures like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, liken it to “The Avengers.”

Alec Baldwin called them “the Justice League of childhood.” Actress Isla Fisher called them the “animated Avengers.” They are the Guardians, the title characters in the 3D animated movie Rise of the Guardians, that DreamWorks Animation will open stateside Nov. 21.

In what has become an annual tradition for the Burbank, Ca.-based studio, DWA is using the Cannes Film Festival to show off its latest wares to the assembled international press. On Friday, DWA’s summer release Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted will get the full red-carpet treatment when it screens at the Palais. And as a sort of curtain-raiser, on Wednesday morning as the festival was just getting under way, the studio staged a press event of its own to show off footage from Guardians.

Introducing the show-and-tell, DWA CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg credited author and illustrator William Joyce for the project’s genesis. It all began when Joyce’s daughter asked him if any of the characters that fuel kids’ imaginations – Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy – had ever met. “You’re going to hear the answers to that today,” Katzenberg said.

Director Peter Ramsey then took the stage to lay out how the movie, based on Joyce’s The Guardians of Childhood book series, has reinvented the iconic characters: Santa Claus is North, a big guy, with a booming, Russian-inflected accent voiced by Baldwin; the Easter Bunny becomes the tunnel-travelling Bunnymund, voiced by Hugh Jackman; ToothFairy is a half-hummingbird, half-human creature to whom Fisher lends her voice; and the Sandman is a silent character, who Ramsay described as “a cross between Harpo Marx and Bhudda.” In the movie, they are joined by a new recruit, Jack Frost, voiced by Chris Pine, as they all do battle with the Boogeyman, who goes by the name of Pitch and is voiced by Jude Law.

New interview with the BBC: Sacha Baron Cohen’s wife admits it’s not a normal life

May 16th 2012 • by Jess • No CommentsNews & Gossip, Personal

Sacha Baron Cohen’s wife admits it’s not a normal life

The wife of Sacha Baron Cohen says she doesn’t live a “normal” life with The Dictator actor.

Actress Isla Fisher married him in 2010 and although she admits “it’s not a normal life to lead,” she does love it.

Fisher says: “Obviously it’s not pleasant to say to your husband – instead of ‘Did you pick up the dry cleaning?’ or ‘Did you pick up someone from a play date?’ – ‘Oh wow are we getting sued? Has anyone put a death threat on us?’”

The couple have two young daughters and in 2009 it was reported that Baron Cohen had received death threats due to controversy over his gay fashionista character Bruno.

With that in mind, and being the person closest to him, does Isla Fisher ever feel she can censor the words that come out of Sacha Baron Cohen’s creations?

“Oh, of course,” Fisher reveals. “There’s a lot of, ‘Oh my gosh, no you cannot say that! We’re friends with that person, blah, blah, blah, no!’”

Isla at the Cannes Film Festival “Rise Of The Guardians” Q&A

The Cannes Film Festival began today, and I was surprised to discover that a Q&A for Rise Of The Guardians was held there today, and that Isla was in attendance! Isla and her co-stars Chris Pine and Alec Baldwin, alongside director Peter Ramsey answered questions from the press and talked about their film. During the discussion, Isla called the movie “the Avengers of animation”, and when asked who her guardian is, she joked “the CIA”! She also said (and this is loosely translated):

“In film, the characters fight so that the children of the world continue to accept the legends. Me, I do not have this problem: as my children are brought up in the Jewish tradition, so they do not believe in Father Christmas. That makes the task easier for me.”

Photos from the Q&A can now be seen in our Gallery. Isla looks fabulous as always in a low-cut V neck little black dress.

Isla at the London premiere of “The Dictator”

May 12th 2012 • by Jess • No CommentsGallery Updates, Personal, Public Events

As I had hoped, Isla attended the world premiere of The Dictator in London on Thursday! She looked beautiful in a silver-blue lace Dolce & Gabanna dress, raspberry patent Dior heels, and super-pretty matching sparkly pink earrings and ring. I love this look on her, and it’s so great to see her all dressed up on the red carpet again, especially to support her husband.

Isla’s make-up artist for the event, Kay Montano, told heatworld.com how she gave Isla her healthy glow:

“My inspiration for Isla’s look was fairytale red carpet chic to accentuate Isla’s classic Celtic ethereal skin and youthful complexion,” says Kay. “To copy the exact look I gave Isla for the global premiere of The Dictator, apply a full coat of St.Tropez Naturals Self Tan Lotion, £26.55, to your body for a subtle, understated glow. Limit the amount of heavy foundation you need by applying St.Tropez Naturals Radiance Self Tan For Face, £21.45, to your cheeks which will add a gentle boost of warmth. The range has been specifically designed for sensitive skin types however, do be bold and use the luxe cream on your legs, arms and décolletage for a sophisticated, dewy finish.”

120+ photos from the premiere have been added to the Gallery, over 90 of which are in gorgeous HQ!
