Isla Fisher reveals it was ‘love at first sight’ when she met her husband Sacha Baron Cohen – saying she is ‘so lucky’ to have married the comedian










Isla Fisher has revealed that she fell head over heels for her husband, Sacha Baron Cohen, the very first time they met.

The Australian actress, 45, appeared on Australia’s The Project on Friday, where presenter Lisa Wilkinson told her that the British comedian, 50, had recently claimed it was love at first sight for him, but not her.

‘I do not know why’ [he said that], he was kidding!’ replied the Wedding Crashers star with a laugh.

“I loved him right away. I mean, I knew it was definitely love at first sight,” she added.

Elsewhere in the interview, Isla reflected on two decades of being together – a rarity in the fickle world of show business.

“By Hollywood standards, it’s probably 200 years!” she joked. “I feel like it’s a golden anniversary or something. Everyone congratulated me’.

“It’s a fun ride. I feel so lucky to have Sacha in my life. Now we have this beautiful family and we survived the lockdown together, what you know, it’s not easy for any couple,” Isla added.

The couple celebrated their 20th anniversary in December.

Isla and UK-born Sacha met in 2002 at a party in Sydney and married eight years later.

The couple have three children, Olive (12), Elula (8) and Montgomery (4).

In 2020 Isla told Marie Claire that meeting with Sacha was like ‘winning the lottery’.

She said their relationship was based on “a shared sense of humor and a willingness to get married.”

The Confessions of a Shopaholic star, who moved to America early in her career, also admitted that “juggling” a family in LA wasn’t easy.

“It’s not really a culture to take your kids to dinner parties or restaurants after 6pm. I tend to entertain at home because I want to be with my family – it’s easier to put your kids to bed and have a glass of wine with friends,” she said.

Isla and Sacha moved to Sydney in 2020 with their two children and have since moved to Perth, Western Australia.
