Isla Fisher, the one who isn’t Amy Adams, gave an interview with Cosmopolitan UK where she claims she had no help in Hollywood at all, despite dating and then marrying Sacha Baron Cohen, who was A+++ in Hollywood for a good few months (and then Bruno happened). Here’s what she told Cosmo (via Daily Mail):
I really have had no help. In fact, the one time I did ask for help was after my agent in LA fired me. I was auditioning for all sorts of things but kept getting told “no”, so she just fired me! So anyway, I said to Sacha, who was my boyfriend at the time, “Can you ask your agent if they’ll represent me?” And his agent said, “No way”. It was the only favor I’d ever asked, and I was like, “OK… great”. But it spurred me on. I’ve had no helping hand in Hollywood. But in general I’ve found that when it comes to getting jobs, what’s meant for you can’t pass you by.
Yeah, okay. I can buy that in the very beginning Borat’s agent wouldn’t want to take her on as a client, but there is no way that Borat didn’t help her get auditions, either through him personally or a meeting he set up with someone else, like a producer or casting agent. That’s just total bullshit. They started dating around 2002 – 2003, and a year later she’s working with David O. Russell in I Heart Huckabees, then she and Cohen get engaged, and soon after that she gets her career defining role in the huge Hollywood big budget comedy Wedding Crashers, and that has nothing to do with Cohen at all? Girl, please.

Cannes film festival is going on right now in France and everyone is GLAMMED THE HELL UP. I like it. Here are the looks that stood out to me, for better or worse. But if you want to get right down to it:
BEST: Isla Fisher
WORST: Julianne Moore
I JUST DON’T KNOW: Zhang Yuqi
Carey Mulligan, seen here with Baz Luhrhraznamann. (Luhrmann). She looks gorgeous but holy hell, where’s the rest of her?? Is she okay? Does she know she’s allowed to smile? Even LANA DEL REY is smiling. Jesus.

The newly-married Isla Fisher (she pledged life-long allegiance to
Borat Sacha Baron Cohen, remember?) is officially on the rounds for Bump Watch 2010.
The Oman-born Fisher gave birth to the couple’s first child, Olive, who was born in LA in 2007. Sacha and Isla were married after eight years of dating just last month. This will be the second child for both parents.
Yeah, and each and every time I see this lovely woman, I will think Wedding Crashers. She was fucking epic in her role as Gloria and I’ll never look at her face again without thinking, “Stage 5 Clinger.”
Isla’s spokesperson currently has no comment on the status of the star’s uterus. So … If congrats are in order, well … Congrats! If not, damn, Isla, you should get a better wardrobe stylist, girl.
Video is probably NSFW.

Nicole Richie and her daughter Harlow left a dance class yesterday in Studio City and hot on their heels were Isla Fisher and her daughter Olive. So Harlow Madden and Olive Cohen are in the same ballet class?! How cute is that? You have to wonder if the two stretch out on the barre and just shoot the shit about what it’s like to be a famous baby. Harlow’s like, “Last week my nanny had the balls to bring me milk. Regular milk! Milk from a cow! I was like, ‘Excuse me Rosalita, but I believe you meant to make this half vanilla Rice Dream, half decaf coffee with two Splendas?’”
Then Olive’s like, “I feel so bloated today. Those paparazzi better not snap me in my leotard! Ugh! The last thing I need is a baby bump watch!” After that they probably snuck away to smoke Marlboro Lights and talk about how drunk Moses Paltrow-Martin was at the last Yo Gabba Gabba wrap party. Or something.

I hope you’re all getting into some debauchery tonight. Like I said earlier, it’s the one night of the year when you can dress like a slut, a freak, or a creep, and people won’t think you’re insane or hold you accountable. It’s just like living in Hollywood.
Celebs are taking advantage of the same opportunity. Katie Couric was spotted sporting this year’s ubiquitous Kate Gosselin costume while the hosts of the Today Show went the Luke & Leia route. Fashion designer Michael Kors dressed in a detailed hippie costume while designer Valentino (above) dressed up as an Oompah Loompah. Oh wait… that’s not a costume.
Would someone please tell me what the hell Martha Stewart and Mickey Rourke are supposed to be? I tried to figure out their costumes, but the best I could come up with was “tree trunk” and “Mickey Rourke.”

Sacha Baron Cohen’s Bruno doesn’t open in the US until July, but it premiered yesterday in London. Despite all the buzz about whether or not the film fairly represented the gay community (uhhhh, I’m gonna go with “no,” because it’s a satire, guys), the early reviews are, I imagine, exactly what Sacha was hoping they’d be.
There’s this, from the BBC:
“Sometimes you question whether he has finally crossed the line into offensive bad taste – and, latterly, whether you were right to laugh at it – but the audience all seemed to guffaw and groan in the right places. They even gasped in horror when they were supposed to.”
And this, from The Sun:
“And here lies a warning — the pygmy sex scene is one of the most horrific incidents ever committed to celluloid. I’m talking fire extinguishers, champagne bottles and mechanically adapted fitness equipment. Teenage boys should under no circumstances watch this with their parents.”
Ooooh, you guys!!! I am SEEING THIS ON OPENING NIGHT. That is, if I can’t talk someone into getting me into a critic’s screening even earlier than that.
