'Confessions of a Shopaholic' star Isla Fisher admits she doesn't listen to the directors of her films
Isla Fisher doesn't listen to the directors of her films.
The Australian actress admits she loves to improvise in scenes whenever she can - whether that means doing what she's told or not.
Speaking about her role as Vince Vaughn's unhinged love interest in 'The Wedding Crashers', Isla said of director David Dobkin: "David wanted me to play it like Sharon Stone in 'Basic Instinct' and I said, 'No - you mean Glenn Close in 'Fatal Attraction'.
"We were on different pages so I'd nod my head whenever he spoke and go and do my own thing. But he was a great director and he was great at letting me improvise."
Although Isla may have lost out on some film roles because of her strong-willed natures, she was encouraged to be herself by director PJ Hogan in her latest film 'Confessions of a Shopaholic'.
She added: "He was totally into it. The way I work is to do it the way it's written and then once I'm in character I like to play around and say whatever I think is funny."
