Burke and Hare actress Isla Fisher revealed she only pretended to squeeze into a corset for the period comedy because she was three months pregnant during filming.
The 34-year-old actress – who gave birth to her second child with husband Sacha Baron Cohen this summer – plays actress Ginny in the black comedy directed by Blues Brothers’ John Landis.
Her character is the love interest to Simon Pegg, who stars opposite Andy Serkis in the film as infamous grave robbers Burke and Hare.
At the film’s premiere at the Curzon Chelsea in London, she said: “That was difficult because I was pregnant during the making of the movie, so I didn’t really squeeze into it. I used to pretend I was wearing a corset and then not wear it, just wear a push up bra – don’t tell the director that.”
The Australian actress – who also has a three-year-old daughter Olive – revealed that Pegg did not notice she was pregnant while they were working together, even though she was suffering from terrible morning sickness.
Isla Fisher claims her co-star assumed she had an eating disorder when she was suffering from morning sickness on a film set.
The Australian actress has just finished filming Burke and Hare – a black comedy set in Scotland about two Irish migrants who killed people in order to sell their bodies for scientific research.
The low-budget film stars Simon Pegg and was directed by John Landis, who also directed Michael Jackson’s Thriller promo.
Isla said that while shooting the film she was struggling with morning sickness but Simon just assumed she was making herself ill in order to keep slim.
“I was actually pregnant during the shooting and I had severe morning sickness and I didn’t eat anything and I just vomited all the time,” she told BBC Breakfast Show “Simon Pegg is the least observant actor in the planet because he didn’t notice. I think he presumed I was just a typical Hollywood bulimic actress rather than the fact that I was severely sick.”
The 34-year-old star – who has just given birth to her second child with Sacha Baron Cohen – launched her acting career on Australian soap opera Home and Away.
As hoped, Isla is attending the world premiere of Burke & Hare in London tonight! This is her first major public appearance in over a year. She looks gorgeous in a little red and black dress with a black jacket and her dark red hair down. She posed on the red carpet with her co-stars Andy Serkis and Simon Pegg. Below are a few preview photos, and I will add full coverage (photos/news tidbits/quotes/videos/etc.) tomorrow!
