Isla Fisher has admitted she has more respect for her husband Sacha Baron Cohen since working with him on 'Grimsby'

Isla Fisher respects Sacha Baron Cohen even more since they worked together.

The 42-year-old actress - who has children Olive, 10, Elula, seven, and three-year-old Montgomery with her spouse - shared the screen with the comic in 2016's 'Grimsby' and she admitted there's no one she'd rather make a movie with.

Asked her favourite co-star, she said: "Well I have to pick my husband. I would not want to not pick him. He is my favourite, obviously.

"We had a really fun time [on 'Grimsby']. We shared a trailer. And it was just hilarious.

"Obviously I always respected him, but having been around so many big comedy stars and seeing how they improvise and stuff - and then to work with my husband and see him be the best improv comedian I've ever worked with, I loved it."

Though the 'Confessions of a Shopaholic' star admitted being a working mother is tough, she feels lucky to have a job that offers so much flexibility.

She told HELLO! magazine: "It's a juggling act and most of the time I feel like the ball is just rolling on the ground - there's not even one in the air.

"But I've realised how fortunate I am that I chosen an occupation that's so family friendly. Obviously you don't want to pull tiny people out of school and drag them to the other end of the Earth on a whim to play a role.

"But you've got a trailer on set and you can all be together in a way that you possibly can't be if you're a doctor working long hours, or if you're a nurse of school teacher."
