Isla Fisher

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.”
