Isla Fisher has defended her new movie, insisting it is relevant in the current economic climate.
The 33-year-old actress says people can "learn a lesson" from 'Confessions of a Shopaholic' - in which she plays a journalist who gets into debt because of her shopping addiction - saying it will teach people to control their spending habits.
Speaking at the UK premiere of the film in London's Leicester Square last night (16.02.09), Isla said: "Yes, I do think this film gives out a good message. I think the message is about consumption and debt and it is something we are all learning about at the moment. Obviously the movie was set in a different economic period but it is a redemption story and my character Rebecca Bloomwood learns her lesson."
Isla's co-star Hugh Dancy, who also attended the glitzy event, admits he has run into trouble in the past after splashing too much cash.
The British actor told BANG Showbiz: "I have never been horribly in debt. I have had my credit card refused many times but that is a different thing!
"The message in this movie is very simple - there are more important things than clothes and shopping. However, this is a comedy first and foremost."
Isla - who braved the chilly London temperatures in a stunning Jasmine di Milo black backless mini-dress and a pair of towering black Jimmy Choo shoes - also revealed she loved working with Hugh and fell for his "gorgeous" eyes.
The Australian star - who has a 15-month-old daughter, Olive, with fiance Sacha Baron Cohen - said: "Hugh did such a great job. He really grounded the movie in reality and of course, Hugh has those gorgeous blue eyes. He did a great job."
