Isla: Marriage to Sacha not normal

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher have a far from conventional marriage, says the actress

Isla Fisher has admitted her marriage to comedian Sacha Baron Cohen is "not normal".

The Australian actress has been in a relationship with the star of Ali G, Bruno and Borat for over 10 years and they have two daughters Olive, five, and Elula, two.

"It's definitely not a normal relationship," Australia's Herald Sun reports Isla told California Style magazine.

"You know there have been times in the past with the guerrilla style film making of Borat and Bruno where there were surreal conversations, 'How many people are suing us? Are you wanted in any states? Are you alive?'."

The Wedding Crashers star converted to Judaism so she could marry Sacha in 2010.

"I love the focus on family, food and laughter," Isla said. "You know, I didn't get to go to university because I've been acting since I was a kid. So for me, studying theology was also fascinating. I love Judaism."

The 37-year-old actress - who will next appear in Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby - has had a string of comedic roles, but doesn't plan on working with her husband at the moment.

"I would love to," she declared. "But I think we are collaborating on enough. We're doing our most difficult, most wonderful screenplays: a five year old and a two-year-old at home. I feel that's the most important collaboration."
