Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen celebrate 7th anniversary

I love hearing about celebrities behaving like normal people. Sure, diva behavior and outrageous spending are fun, but there’s something about rich and famous people doing average things that warms my heart.

Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen aka Borat are one of the most normal Hollywood couples, and their little girl is so cute. It’s nice to hear that despite their long engagement they still celebrate their anniversary seven years on.

ISLA FISHER and SACHA BARON COHEN planned to celebrate their anniversary by seeing hit movie SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE – but had to leave the theatre when they couldn’t find seats together. The engaged couple, who are parents to one-year-old daughter Olive, headed to the cinema to check out the critically-acclaimed film, which is nominated for 10 Academy Awards at next month’s (Feb09) ceremony.

But they were forced to improvise another romantic date after realising the venue was too crowded to find seats.

Fisher recalls, “They only had two seats apart and, as it was our seventh anniversary, it didn’t feel right to sit away from each other. So we just walked around in the New York snow.”

I can just imagine any old couple doing this to celebrate their anniversary, and I like it better than the elaborate stunts pulled by some celebrities. Not that building your girlfriend an igloo to propose isn’t a beautiful gesture, but every time I tell my husband about these kind of things he just rolls his eyes and says ‘another grand gesture I can’t compete with? I’m going to give up and buy you a toaster this year’. He sort of has a point. Most of us can’t afford to get crazy romantic, but what we can afford is to go for a walk with your partner, and maybe catch a movie.

Recently Joe Biden and his wife Jill went for a date night and were turned away from sold out sessions of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Like Isla and Sacha, they mulled over their other film choices before leaving, without demanding special treatment.

    Isla is so cute. She looks so young! I hope her movie does well. I did not know they had a baby!

  2. Bodhi says:

    Well congrats to them! I love their little family!

  3. rules says:

    so what, why is this news?

  4. Asiont says:

    sacha is a great comedian but I didn’t know he can look sooo handsome :>

  5. Ash says:

    That kid is freakin adorable. So is Isla. She looks great.

  6. Amy says:

    Cohen is a bit of a hottie when he’s in his civilian attire, huh?

  7. anon says:

    Seventh anniversary of what? Their engagement? First date? First time in bed together? First time she told the press they were getting married?
    What a dope to make a baby with a guy who won’t commit!

  8. hmm says:

    I think she’s cute but I wouldn’t go to the movies just to see her. I agree with anon, I would be highly suspicious of a man who didn’t make marriage a priority even after the birth of our child.

  9. LondonParis says:

    anon and hmm: they were engaged before her pregnancy. it is possible that they’re perfectly happy the way they are, and will get married eventually on their own time. i remember reading that his family is very traditionally, conservatively jewish. they probably only got engaged in the first place to satiate his family as a baby was on the way.
    not everyone wants to be married, not everyone considers that to be the penultimate in partnership. these two obviously don’t, and neither do i.

  10. Ana says:

    Well she had to convert before they get married. Doesn’t that take time?
    I think it’s great they’ve been together 7 years period. That’s a lifetime in Hollywood.
    And he is dead sexy.

  11. anon says:

    To LondonParis–You are right that “not everyone wants to be married, not everyone considers that to be the penultimate in partnership.” However, since Isla’s been telling the British press that a marriage is right around the corner since 2002 or so and that she would do anything to be married to Sacha,even convert, I’d guess that she is not one of those people who doesn’t want to be married. The last announcement that a marriage was imminent was in fall of 2006, right after her conversion. Well, she’s converted, they have a kid and she’s still single. If she were my friend, I’d tell her that he just doesn’t seem to want to marry her. But, as Ana remarked, he is dead sexy, so why hold out for stability for your kid when you can have all that hotness?

  12. A.J. says:

    They make such a lovely family. Little Olive is just too cute for words.

  13. Ellen Smith says:

    If they don’t want to get married, why are they saying they’re engaged? An engagement is a precursor to marriage. It is not an endpoint.

  14. This is quite a up-to-date info. I think I’ll share it on Twitter.
