Isla Fisher refuses to hear Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat schemes before filming: ‘That’s how I sleep at night’

Isla Fisher has revealed that she likes to remain oblivious to the behaviour of her husband, Sacha Baron Cohen, when he is performing as Borat. 

Baron Cohen recently reprised the role of outrageous Khasakstani journalist Borat Sagdiyev in Amazon Prime’s sequel to his 2006 hit comedy. 

Speaking with the Herald Sun, Fisher said: “I'm lucky in that I'm not privy to the information usually until it happens, so I don't see that he was at a gun rally until he's home safe.

“I think he's learnt the hard way that if he gives me the information up front, that I put the kibosh on it.”

The actor was referring to a scene from Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm in which Baron Cohen went undercover at a Washington State gun rally.

Baron Cohen has long been known for his elaborate on-film pranks, which have incited furious reactions from crowds and onlookers on several occasions. 

“I find out what's happened afterwards, and that's how I can sleep at night, otherwise I'd be too worried,” said Fisher.
