How Did Isla Fisher And Sacha Baron Cohen Meet?
Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher seem like they were meant to be together. Sacha said that they met at a “very pretentious party” in Sydney, Australia, in 2001, and they hit it off right away. Sacha later told the New York Times that they had bonded over making fun of other people at the party. He knew it was love at first sight when he saw her. He called Isla “funny” and said, “I knew right away. I’m not sure if she did or not. It took her about 20 years to figure it out.”
When Did Isla And Sacha Get Engaged And Married?
Sacha and Isla had been seeing each other for about three years in a very low-key way before they took their relationship to the next level. The couple has got engaged in 2004. During the time they were together, Isla changed her religion to become Jewish for Sacha.
Isla told the Evening Standard, “I will definitely have a Jewish wedding just so Sacha can be there. I would do anything, even convert to a different religion, to get married to him.”
After being engaged for six years, the couple got married in Paris in a small, private ceremony. Sacha told the New York Times that his father pretended to be a famous chef celebrating his 70th birthday in order to keep the paparazzi and cameras away.
Isla had told Allure before that the small ceremony was important to her because “it was very important to me to have a beautiful ritual with my family and friends.” And when you are in the public eye, it is very hard to keep this secret and make it happen without it being very obvious.”
They have been married for more than 20 years, making them one of Hollywood’s longest-lasting couples. They’ve always been able to keep their relationship and family life very private, but whenever they do talk about each other in public, what they say is always full of love. These two are clearly in it for the long haul. They have three kids and a dog.
