The Cake actress said: "Our friends Sacha and Isla (Baron Cohen and Fisher) showed up for four parties, four little gatherings, about a year ago, in beautiful wedding wear.

"Even the fourth of July, they showed up and Sacha was in a powder-blue suit and Isla was in a little cute dress and we were like, "Guys, it’s the Fourth of July. We are cutoffs, we are eating hot dogs, we will actually let you know!"
