Sacha Baron Cohen is Grateful for his “Very Understanding” Wife Isla Fisher
Actor Sacha Baron Cohen is one of those men who understand the worth of his wife. The Borat star recently admitted in this year’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony that he is very “lucky” for his “very, very understanding” wife Isla Fisher.
Sacha Baron Cohen appreciates his amazing wife Isla Fisher
Baron Cohen, 49, recently won two Golden Globes for his Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm. While talking to the reporters after he won, Baron Cohen spoke about the incredible support of his wife, Isla Fisher, 45, saying:
It’s impossible to make a movie like this without having an incredibly supporting spouse. You know, I went and made two movies in the last 12 months: [The Trial of the] Chicago Seven and Borat 2. And these aren’t normal shoot days; you’re calling up sometimes at the end of the day and just saying, ‘I was lucky to make it out in one piece today,’ so you need a very, very understanding wife. And I’m very lucky to have it.
Isla Fisher started dating Sacha Baron Cohen back in 2002, and the two got married in 2010. The couple has two daughters, Olive and Elula, and a son named Montgomery. Furthermore, Baron Cohen also admitted the greatness of his wife during his acceptance speech for the best picture (comedy) award as well. He said:
Thank you to my incredibly patient wife Isla, who has put up with all my madness.
What Borat was about
In the Borat sequel, Sacha Baron Cohen reprised his role as the Kazakhstani journalist Borat, with Maria Bakalova playing the role of his daughter, Tutar. The two went on a journey across Trump’s America, interacting with the political divide. And everyone they met had no idea they were part of the movie. But, it’s also the reason why it got too dangerous for Baron Cohen to continue with Borat, saying:
It got too dangerous. There were a couple of times I had to put on a bulletproof vest to go and shoot a scene, and you don’t want to do that too many times in your life. I was pretty lucky to get out this time, so no, I’m not doing it again. I’m going to stay with the scripted stuff.
