Isla Fisher doesn’t weigh herself because she wants to set a good example for her daughters
Isla Fisher doesn’t weigh herself regularly because she wants to set a good example for her daughters. The Australian actress – who has two daughters Olive, five, and Elula, two, with her 41-year-old husband Sacha Baron Cohen – relies on yoga to keep her figure trim but tries not to be too strict with her diet as she wants her daughters to grow up with a positive body image.
She told the new issue of Fitness magazine that she was happy to gain weight for her role in ‘The Great Gatsby’, saying: “I gained 15 pounds. It mainly manifested itself in my boobs, which was very exciting. Sadly, that’s gone now.”
The 37-year-old beauty also revealed that she didn’t put any pressure on herself during either of her pregnancies.
She said: “I gained 65 pounds with my first baby and 70 with my second. I mostly ate supersize bowls of white pasta with loads of butter and cheese, late night cornflakes, Haagen-Dazs ice-cream and scones with jam and cream.”
She claims she got her back to her pre-pregnancy weight with the help of a personal trainer and breastfeeding but insisted concerned if stomach is never completely flat again.
She said: “Even though it will never be flat again, it’s still my favourite because it reminds me f my greatest achievement: my babies.”
