Isla Fisher had been busy lately – after starring in Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Great Gatsby’, she will also be seen in a new heist action-thriller ‘Now You See Me’.  She has an interview with InStyle Magazine promoting her role in ‘Great Gatsby’, and she says shooting the movie was a dream come true.
A still from the 'Great Gatsby'
“I can only say that I remember seeing Romeo and Juliet when I was 16 and thinking if I could work with Baz Luhrmann, I would die happy. I know it sounds like a cliché but it really was a dream come true and you could hardly wipe the smile from my face on set for the entire time. To be in Baz's world—he's such a visual genius and an incredibly unique storyteller—was an utter privilege."
She also adds that she gained weight for that role, saying, “ was breast-feeding at the time, so I definitely carried some surplus flesh [laughs]. I did gain some weight for the role, to be honest. I hopefully stayed as true to the book as I could. The Great Gatsby is one of those extraordinary books that changes in meaning when you read it at different stages of your life. I've probably read it 10 times, and each time I've connected with different characters."

She also talks about her social life in Los Angeles versus her social life in London, saying, "I would say I stay in more than I go out. In London we go out a lot more. I like to cook and entertain but I'm finding it increasingly harder to do so on a bigger scale because there's a lot going on. I do have a brand new Viking oven that is amazing; it cooks everything perfectly. I try to make simple food that I love. I always circle back to my Donna Hay [recipes]; she's a legend. And I'm into Ottelenghi: The Cookbook. It's by two amazing chefs, one's Palestinian and one's Israeli, and they make sublime Middle Eastern dishes."
