Baron Cohen Talked Fisher Into Comedy Career

Australian star ISLA FISHER turned to a career in comedy when her funnyman fiance SACHA BARON COHEN laughed at her auditions - for serious roles. The Wedding Crashers actress claims the Borat creator convinced her to pursue Hollywood comedy films after labelling her the funniest woman he had met - even though she was reading for dramatic productions. The 31-year-old says, "Sacha noticed it first (having a talent for comedy). I was auditioning for all these dramatic roles, and I'd read the scenes through with him. "He'd laugh and say, 'You should be doing comedy, you're one of the funniest women I've met!' I'd never considered comedy but I felt that it was such a huge compliment coming from him that I went ahead. "Wedding Crashers was one of the first comedy films I went for."
