The actress went along with the situation - even when it turned awkward.
Being mistaken for a celebrity can't be all bad, but when you are an actress mistaken for a more famous star, it can get pretty awkward. That's what happened to Isla Fisher when she met Lady GaGa, who seemed certain that she was in fact Amy Adams.

41-year-old Isla Fisher has never and will never be Amy Adams, but when she bumped into Lady Gaga at the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar party, she was determined to pretend that she was the 'Arrival' star after the singer got the two of them mixed up.

Not even Isla Fisher’s family can tell her apart from Amy Adams.

Isla Fisher, not Amy Adams
It's been seven years since designer Tom Ford made a splash with his award-winning writing-directing debut A Single Man, and it's no surprise that his second film is just as exquisitely beautiful to look at. What's unexpected is the complexity of the storytelling. Adapted by Ford from Austin Wright's novel Tony and Susan, this movie has three sides to it: a romantic drama, a darkly personal odyssey and a freaky thriller. These elements kind of fight for the audience's attention, but they're sharply played and packed with intense emotion.
Set in Los Angeles, everything revolves around gallery owner Susan (Amy Adams), who lives in a spectacular home with her banker husband Hutton (Armie Hammer), who's facing financial problems. Susan is shocked when she receives a manuscript by her ex-husband Edward (Jake Gyllenhaal), who has finally finished his long-gestating novel. But as she reads it, she realises that their break-up inspired the story, and she pictures Edward in the central role as Tony, a man travelling through Texas with his wife and daughter (Isla Fisher and Ellie Bamber), who are kidnapped and brutalised by roadside thugs led by the unstable Ray (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). So Tony teams up with jaded detective Bobby (Michael Shannon) to track them down.
The film's central narrative is Susan's deeply internalised discovery of her own dark soul, which plays out both in her scenes with Hutton and figuratively in the fictional thriller narrative. All of these things take complex twists and turns that have vivid moral shadings. But of course the Wild West action element continually steals focus from the more understated personal drama. In this sense, Gyllenhaal has the trickiest role, or rather two roles, as the story's catalyst and victim. Meanwhile, Adams is strikingly transparent as Susan, engaging in jagged interaction with both Gyllenhaal's enigmatic Edward and Hammer's eerily heartless Hutton.

The notoriously private couple have kept news of their new arrival on the down low.
Congratulations are in order as Sacha Baron Cohen and his wife Isla Fisher have reportedly welcomed their third child. US Weekly is said to have confirmed the happy news, although no further details including the baby’s sex or name have been revealed.
Cohen and Fischer have been married since 2010.
The British comedian and the Australian actress are already parents to two daughters Olive, 7, and Elula, 4. They reportedly met in 2002 at a party in Australia and became engaged in 2004. Isla then converted to Judaism before marring Cohen in March 2010 in Paris, France.

Although the plot itself is nothing special, this kidnapping comedy keeps the audience entertained by filling every scene with outrageous characters and twisty interaction. Based on an Elmore Leonard book, this free-wheeling movie is such a tangle of colourful people and riotous 1980s hairstyles that it can't help but be enjoyable. Especially once we realise that the story isn't the most important thing.
It's set in 1984 Detroit, where trophy wife Mickey (Jennifer Aniston) has finally had it with her chilly husband Frank (Tim Robbins). As she's thinking about taking their son (Charlie Tahan) and leaving, he's holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress Melanie (Isla Fisher) while preparing to serve Mickey with divorce papers. Just then, low-life criminals Louis and Ordell (John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey, aka Mos Def), kidnap Mickey and demand a $1 million ransom. Of course, Frank thinks his problem is solved until he realises that they also know about his dodgy business dealings. And things are further complicated by Louis and Ordell's Nazi-loving sidekick (Mark Boone Junior) and an amorous dork (Will Forte) who's in love with Mickey.
As the chaos escalates, writer-director Daniel Schechter keeps the focus tightly on the offbeat characters rather than the gyrations of the narrative. This makes it easy to identify with everyone on-screen, particularly Aniston and Hawkes, who have the most complex roles. They're the only people who have either emotional shadings or a story arc to travel, so watching them become increasingly aware of the opportunities around them is a lot of fun. Everyone else is here to get laughs, and it's amusing to see each of them reveal things about themselves that add to the mayhem, from Fisher's surprisingly savvy bombshell to Bey's womanising prowess. And of course each character approaches the various moral dilemmas from a distinct angle.

Frank Dawson is a filthy rich, arrogant real estate developer who regularly takes 'business trips' in order to continue an affair with his young lover Melanie Ralston. During one of his trips away, his wife Mickey is held for ransom in her own home by a gang of masked men who call Frank to demand he deposit $1 million into an offshore bank account if he ever wants to see his wife again. But there's just one tiny problem: he doesn't want to see her again. He's been racking his brains to find a way he might possibly be able to leave her without the costly disadvantages of alimony, divorce costs and child support and now it seems the solution has finally dropped into his lap. Mickey doesn't believe Frank would pay that much to save her but now it's down to his own morals.
'Life Of Crime' is a crime comedy full of unexpected twists and turns. Based on the novel 'The Switch' by Elmore Leonard, the movie adaptation has been directed and written by Daniel Schechter ('Supporting Characters', 'Goodbye Baby', 'The Big Bad Swim') and it is due to be released in UK theatres on September 5th 2014.
We're still not absolutely sure this was a joke.
Sacha Baron Cohen was honoured for his contribution to comedy at the weekend's Britannia Awards in LA. The actor, who is most famous for his Ali G and Borat characters, was called to the stage by actress Salma Hayek and a wheelchair-bound elderly lady, introduced as the 87 year-old Grace Collington, the supposed former child star of Charlie Chaplin silent movies.

Hayek spoke warmly of Cohen, praising his ability to immerse himself in a role and make his comedy believable and hilarious. Dressed in a sharp suit, he leapt up to collect his award but not before Grace had given a special gift of her own. "This is the cane from City Lights," she said, handing Sacha the iconic hooked cane. The crowd "Aww'd" as the actor took the cane and began to tap dance.
