Isla Fisher is finally ready to marry her boyfriend of seven years, Sacha Baron Cohen. The actress tells the new issue of Allure Magazine, “We are going to get married, really, really, even more now than ever. We have been talking about it, and we have been very close, but it has been difficult to plan.”
“It is very important to me to have a beautiful ritual celebrated with all my family and friends, and to feel part of a community,” she adds. “And when you are in the public eye, to keep that private and to make it happen without it being really visible is really difficult.”
Fisher says she converted to Judaism to prepare for the impending wedding. “I converted as of two years ago,” she says. “It is always reported that I am still studying, so I am either the slowest studier in the world, or I have, in fact, converted.”
Isla and Sacha have been engaged since 2003 and have a one-year-old daughter, Olive.
