Isla Fisher & Sacha Baron Cohen: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

1. Fisher Smuggled Cohen’s ‘Ali G’ Disguise Into the Oscars This Year

In March, Fisher admitted that she played a role in Cohen’s appearance as ‘Ali G’ on the Oscar stage earlier this year– she smuggled her husband’s Ali G costume into the Kodak Theater in her underwear.

Fisher told Jimmy Kimmel, “He said ‘I want to sneak in and do Ali G but I can’t find any of the costume on my body because they’re gonna put me through metal detectors and be ultra suspicious.’” Cohen then followed up by asking Fisher, “Sweetie, will you fit giant yellow glasses, a hat, a glove, and a beard inside your spanx?”

The ruse came with a bout of stress, though. After Fisher and Cohen locked themselves into a bathroom to change into his costume, Oscars producers kept knocking on the door, asking if everything was alright.  Fisher told them Cohen had a stomach ache. “I had to lie to everyone, which made me feel really guilty and then they gave me all these Tums, so I had to eat them so it wouldn’t look suspicious.”
