Inside the heartwarming love story of Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher


But while the flaming haired star has been in dozens of movies and TV shows (and even more, if you also think she is Amy adams) and has written several books, and Cohen’s projects, while more sporadic, tend to attract attention. Together, they managed to live a fairly low-key life, dividing time between Los Angeles and London with their three children, sons. Montgomery having joined Olive and Elula in 2015. The family reportedly added a base in Australia last year and in April she vacationed in Perth, where Fisher grew up after being born in Oman, where her Scottish parents lived while her father worked for the United Nations. .

Cohen won two Oscar nominations this year, best supporting actor for his turn as an activist Abbie hoffmann in The Chicago 7 trial and Best Adapted Screenplay, shared with fellow screenwriters, for Borat 2. The pandemic-delayed ceremony resulted in no wins for the artist pushing the envelopes, but he and Fisher enjoyed an evening for two with the Sydney skyline as a backdrop, choosing to attend a special screening of the live show (with photo ops) Down Under.

Fisher told the Daily Telegraph’s Stellar magazine earlier this year that she was the happiest in Australia. “I miss it when I’m not around,” she admitted. “I don’t feel any pressure when I’m in Australia. I don’t have anything to say, do or be. I mean, I don’t even have to wear shoes!”

“My husband only makes a movie every three years, so we’re together all the time,” she told the UK channel. Telegraph in 2016. And at that point, she was able to be a lot more selective with the roles she accepted than when she was making her Hollywood debut.

“I am fortunate to be able to stay home and be with my family,” she said. “I used to devour every script, but now I’m focusing on my family life, which has given me so much satisfaction in a deep way.”
