Stepsister of Conor Reid.

Born in Oman of Scottish parents.

Her first job was as a lottery ad extra. She was so excited that she hyperventilated for four hours and nearly fainted.

Her mother is a romance novelist.

Her first name is pronounced Eye-Lah.

Ranked #61 on the Maxim magazine Hot 100 of 2008 list.

Converted to Sacha Baron Cohen s religion, Judaism, and took the name Ayala, meaning "doe" in Hebrew.

At the age of 18, with the help of her mother, Isla wrote two teen novels, "Bewitched" and "Seduced by Fame". Both novels became bestsellers.

Returned to work four months after giving birth to her daughter Olive in order to begin filming Confessions of a Shopaholic .

Sister-in-law of Erran Baron Cohen.

Returned to work 12 months after giving birth to her daughter Elula to begin filming Bachelorette .

Was once engaged to Darren Day.

She almost drowned during shooting a scene for Now You See Me (2013/I) , in which she performed in a piranha tank. The top of the tank remained opened so that Fisher would be able to swim to the top to get some air, and there was also an emergency lever inside the tank that, if pulled, would alert the crew that she needed help. During one take, Fisher was running out of air and tried to swim to the top, but the chains on the handcuffs she was wearing got stuck on the bottom of the tank, so she was unable to swim to the top or pull the lever. She then attempted to alert the crew by hitting the glass of the tank, but since her character is supposed to be panicked and scared in the scene, the crew thought she was acting. The stunt coordinator finally realized that something was wrong after he noticed that her handcuffs were stuck.

Baz Luhrmann is her favorite director and she agreed to star in his film The Great Gatsby , without reading the script.

Gave birth to her third child at age 39, son Montgomery Moses Brian Baron Cohen on March 17, 2015. Brian is Islas fathers name. Childs father is her husband, Sacha Baron Cohen.

Returned to work 4 months after giving birth to her daughter Olive in order to begin filming Confessions of a Shopaholic .

On March 15, 2010, she married her boyfriend of eight years and father of her two-year-old daughter Olive, Sacha Baron Cohen , in Paris following a six-year-long engagement.

Gave birth to her first child at age 31, daughter Olive Cohen, on October 17, 2007 in Los Angeles. Childs father is her fiancee (now husband), Sacha Baron Cohen.

Is so often mistaken for actress/friend Amy Adams that she and her prankster husband Sacha Baron Cohen once pasted Amys face over Islas on their custom holiday greeting cards with the message, "Season Greetings from Sacha, Isla and the Kids." Apparently none of the recipients even noticed. And when Lady Gaga met her in person she told her how much she loved her acting in American Hustle , Isla didnt want to spoil her excitement--then Amy Adams actually walked in.


Am I a romantic at heart? Who knows.

[After she gives birth] There is no way I am going to worry about,missing out on work or the pressure to lose weight. At the moment I am,not even planning any work.

I think there is nothing sexier than a handlebar mustache.

I love good food and I love to eat in nice restaurants. I love Japanese,food. I love Gordon Ramsay in London; he is pretty amazing.

Women one hundred percent support each other in the movie industry.

I went to something like six different schools before the age of 12, so,I was always the new girl and had to make friends quickly. It was,difficult at the start because I was very bookish - I was literally sat,in the corner reading books, with no friends.

Women should not have to adopt masculine traits in order to succeed. You,should be able to stay as a woman, and in tune with your femininity,and still be equal.

Family is 100 per cent my top priority.

I was raised as a tomboy with boys, and I never really feel like myself,when I am really dolled up at premieres and showbiz events.

I breastfed both my kids for two years so, you know it was very tiring,emotionally and physically.

An easy way to get people to like you is to make them laugh.

Being proud of who we are as people is more important than cutting into,ourselves to create this false idea of beauty.

I think there is nothing sexier than laughter lines.

After Wedding Crashers (2005) I was just surprised as to the lack,of comedic female material there is. So I had to start working and,getting stuff out there for myself.

Being a mother is by far my greatest accomplishment.

I do consider myself to be a feminist.

Comedy has always been important in my family. If you got in a good joke,at the dinner table, it meant more than almost anything else.

The most romantic thing a guy has ever done for me is starting a family.

I gained 65 pounds with my first baby and 70 with my second. I had,severe morning sickness both times, so I mostly ate supersize bowls of,white pasta with loads of butter and cheese because that was the only,thing that took away the nausea.

Am I disappointed occasionally by the lack of irony in some movies? Yes.

I love good food and I love to eat in nice restaurants. I love Japanese food. I love Gordon Ramsay in London he is pretty amazing.
