Isla Fisher wants to marry her fiance, 'Borat...' star Sacha Baron Cohen, "more now than ever"
Isla Fisher wants to marry her fiance Sacha Baron Cohen "more now than ever".
The 'Wedding Crashers' actress is very keen to tie the knot with the 'Borat...' star - who proposed to her in 2004 - but admits the couple have struggled to keep their plans private.
She said: "We are going to get married - 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. 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."
The couple got engaged after dating for two years - but put the wedding on hold when Isla fell pregnant with their 15-month-old daughter Olive.
The actress has studied to convert from Methodist Christianity to Judaism - Sacha's religion - and has been given the Hebrew name Ayala or 'Doe'.
She told Allure magazine: "I converted as of two years ago. 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.
"I think if one wanted to be buried next to one's beloved and they were Jewish, then one would have to be Jewish, too."
