Fisher dreams of normal life

Isla Fisher sometimes wishes she could quiz Sacha Baron Cohen about the dry cleaning, rather than if they've received death threats.

The Australian actress married the British star in 2010 and they have two daughters.

Baron Cohen is famed for his outrageous brand of comedy - playing gay fashion fan Bruno resulted in the star's life being threatened.

Fisher supports him, but sometimes wonders what a normal life would be like.

"Obviously it's not pleasant to say to your husband - instead of, 'Did you pick up the dry cleaning?' or 'Did you pick up someone from a play date?' - 'Oh wow are we getting sued? Has anyone put a death threat on us?'" she laughed.

In his latest movie The Dictator, Baron Cohen plays the title role. His character is a man who doesn't understand democracy, causing problems when he comes to America.

Fisher is totally supportive of the release but told the BBC she does worry about Baron Cohen's brand of humour.

"There's a lot of, 'Oh my gosh, no you cannot say that! We're friends with that person, blah, blah, blah, no!'"

Baron Cohen sports a bushy beard in the picture, although it was fake. That is something Fisher remains thankful for, having lived through several strange styles of facial hair with her spouse.

"The good news is the beard came off in the evening. So I did not have to look at the beard, unlike the Borat handlebar moustache which I was saddled with for months and months," she said.
