Actress Isla Fisher showed off her fab physique on the May 2013 cover of Fitness magazine. The actress, who is married to Sacha Baron Cohen, opened up about being a mom to her two daughters (Olive, 5, and Elula, 2).
How she lost the baby weight:
“I gained 65 pounds with my first baby and 70 with my second. I had severe morning sickness both times, so I mostly ate supersize bowls of white pasta with loads of butter and cheese because that was the only thing that took away the nausea. I had to shoot Confessions of a Shopaholic about three months after I gave birth to Olive, so the producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, hired a trainer to work with me three times a week. That was both inspirational and terrifying because I didn’t want to let the trainer down. After I had my second daughter, I slowly lost the weight by breastfeeding, hiking Runyon Canyon and working with a trainer every couple of weeks.”
On gaining weight for The Great Gatsby and flaunting her curves:
“I gained weight for that role because Myrtle, the character I play, is supposed to be heavyset. So I ate lots of protein, and I gained 15 pounds. It mainly manifested itself in my boobs, which was very exciting. Sadly, that’s gone now.”
Why she doesn’t own a scale:
“I have two young girls, and I wouldn’t want them to see me weighing myself all the time. I don’t think it sends the right message.”
Isla’s favorite body part:
“My stomach. Even though it will never be flat again, it’s still my favorite because it reminds me of my greatest achievement: My babies.”
