Isla Fisher became a comic actress because of her husband
The `Wedding Crashers` star - who shot to fame in Australian TV drama series `Home and Away` - insists she has always made her friends laugh but only thought of it as a direction for her career when spouse Sacha Baron Cohen encouraged her to try out for a comedy role.
She said: "I`ve always been the clown with my friends, but it was Sacha who said, `You`re the funniest girl.`
"He said not many women are willing to make a fool of themselves, so he pushed me in that direction and then my first audition was `Wedding Crashers` and that was it."
Isla - who has a three-year-old daughter Olive and another girl, Elula, aged around eight months, with her spouse - also insisted she is very choosy about the roles she takes on and is happy not to be a workaholic.
She told Elle magazine: "Am I a workaholic? I`m exactly the opposite. I`m pretty choosy about what I do, which probably comes from years of having no choices."
