‘Gatsby’: Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher on Selling Out DiCaprio, Aussie Media Frenzy (Video)
The actors joke about calling in Leo sightings to a local radio station and the “lucrative sideline” of revealing set secrets.
Leonardo DiCaprio undoubtedly causes a media frenzy whenever he goes, but while filming The Great Gatsby in Australia, all of Sydney had their eyes peeled for the A-lister.
“The press just had a field day,” Joel Edgerton says of his co-star’s presence in his native land. Adds fellow Aussie Isla Fisher: “It was horrible. They had a radio show that treated him like he wasn’t even a person.”
Said show enlisted the help of local sleuths to call in any Leo spottings for broadcast on the airwaves.
Vulture Broke the Bored to Death Movie News to Isla Fisher, and Yes, She Wants In
When Vulture first heard that there might be a Bored to Death movie, we got super excited and started spreading the good word — in some cases, breaking the news to folks who might actually be in the movie, should creator Jonathan Ames decide to include their characters. Yesterday afternoon, we had the distinct pleasure of informing Isla Fisher that a movie was in the works and got to witness her delight. “Oh my God!” she squealed, when we grabbed a quiet moment with her at a Great Gatsby event hosted by Tiffany & Co. and MAC Cosmetics (Fisher plays Myrtle Wilson). “My agents don’t tell me anything! I didn’t know!” And then she realized, “I’m in the season finale … that means I get to be in it! Did [Ames] say I’ll get to be in it? Do you know?”
Assuming Ames sticks to his original plan of putting her character, Rose, in a sanitarium to recover from accidental incest with Schwartzman’s character, we thought so, yes. “Oh, wow. Wow. I would love to play that. Fabulous. That’s something you can really sink your teeth into,” she said. “I loved working on that show. I remember, I came home and I said to my manager or agent, ‘That would be the perfect job for me, to have a regular gig, working with the nicest people. I love Jonathan Ames. I loved working with Jason Schwartzman. I loved it. Loved it.” Ames should be pleased at her enthusiasm, because one of his concerns was whether or not Fisher would be available to resume her role. “I’ll make myself available!” she giggled. “That is the best news. You’ve actually really made my day.” Glad to be of service. Ames, your move.
Isla promoted The Great Gatsby on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Monday night, and looked fabulous in a little black lace dress whilst doing so. The interview was equal parts hilarious and awkward … they talked about Isla’s short legs, flying planes, the movie, and a strangely shaped mug! You can watch it yourself below, and we will have a downloadable version for you very soon. And in our Gallery you can find pretty HD screencaptures!

Today we have photos from Isla’s appearance on Live With Kelly & Michael last week promoting Gatsby. After the Jimmy Fallon look I thought she couldn’t look any more beautiful, but she may have topped that look with this one, in a little white dress and super-cute hairstyle! The interview itself was good, with Isla chatting about her propensity to play slightly wild characters, showing Kelly & Michael how to eat vegemite, and then about the movie itself. Big, big thanks to our friend Colleen for making us a video of this appearance … the video will be up here for you asap, but for now I have added screencaptures to our Gallery. We also have HQ photos of Isla outside the studios where the show is taped, thanks to DeA, and a HQ still from the show.
So, lots more gorgeous Isla pics for you to enjoy, and I’m sure you will!
Last week Isla appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to promote The Great Gatsby, and I’ve now added a couple of stills plus HD screencaptures from the interview. Isla looked incredible in a low-cut fitted red dress, with her tousled hair left down – this is one of my favourite looks from her, without a doubt! The interview was short but sweet, with Isla talking about how she stayed silent during her audition for the film so as not to put Baz off her real personality, her excitement at the film opening Cannes, and filming in Australia with Leonardo DiCaprio.
Unfortunately I haven’t found a video that I can post here yet, but I will keep looking! If you come across one online then just leave a comment so we can share it with everyone else
Enjoy the HD caps of a particularly gorgeous Isla in the Gallery:
MTV News aired a behind the scenes look at Now You See Me earlier today, with clips from the film and interviews with Isla, Jesse Eisenberg and Dave Franco. Watch below:
As posted about on the day, Isla made an appearance on Good Morning America last week to promote The Great Gatsby, and I’ve now added photos from the show. Isla looked super gorgeous in a bright pink Jenni Kayne top, a white skirt from 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Casadei heels. She looked to be having fun as she signed autographs and took pictures with fans! Lots of fabulous HQ photos of Isla outside the studios are in our Gallery, as are HD screencaptures from the interview and HQ photos from the taping. Props to DeA for most of these pictures <3
