Isla Fisher Shows Off Post-Baby Body At ‘Burke And Hare’ Premiere
Isla Fisher walked the red carpet in a little red dress last night after welcoming a second child into the world with husband Sacha Baron Cohen this summer, although the name, sex or date of birth of the child has yet to be revealed.
The Australian-raised actress, 34, wore a figure-hugging Dolce & Gabbana lace mini and joined co-stars Simon Pegg, Andy Serkis and Jessica Hynes at the Chelsea screening of the British black comedy Burke and Hare.
“I was actually pregnant during the shooting and I had severe morning sickness and I didn’t eat anything and I just vomited all the time. Simon Pegg is the least observant actor in the planet because he didn’t notice. I think he presumed I was just a typical Hollywood bulimic actress rather than the fact that I was severely sick,” she joked.
Pegg conceded he didn’t realize she was pregnant: “I didn’t know what was going on. She didn’t look pregnant until the last minute. I saw her a couple of months later and she was like a balloon. None of us knew, not even John knew. She hid it well.”
The film, directed by John Landis, is based off of the real-life Burke and Hare, who hailed from Ireland and were responsible for the deaths of at least 17 people from 1827 until 1828. After murdering their victims, the pair then went on to sell the bodies to Dr. Robert Knox, who dissected them in his anatomy classes at Barclay’s anatomy school in Surgeon’s Square. The pair were eventually caught when one of their lodgers tipped off the police after finding the body of their last victim, Marjory Campbell Docherty, under her bed.
