(Newser) – As you probably suspected, a marriage to Sacha Baron Cohen is not the same as your typical, run-of-the-mill union. "It's definitely not a normal relationship," his wife, actress Isla Fisher, tells California Style magazine in an interview picked up by Australia's News Network. "There have been times in the past with the guerrilla style filmmaking 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 couple met at a party in Sydney in 2002, and wed in 2010. They have two daughters, 5-year-old Olive and 2-year-old Elula. Fisher converted to Judaism after getting married, and says she loves "the focus on family, food, and laughter." As for a possible collaboration with her husband, "I would love to," she says. "But I think we are collaborating on enough: a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old at home. I feel that's the most important collaboration."

More that that butt monkey deserves! Haven't seen anything that he has done that I can actually sit through for more than 10 minutes before my head explodes.

I think they are adorable! She is so cute and I have enjoyed her in numerous movies, the one with Ryan Reynolds and also Confessions of a Shopaholic. He is off the chart out there. Non the less, they seem to be happily married with two cute children. He is a nut, she is so cute. What more can you say? www.survivingparadise.info

I've never liked Sacha Baron Cohen or any of the stupid stuff he's done until I saw him in Les Miserables. He was so good it made me wonder why he ever did those stupid movies. He should stick to musical theater!! Phenomenal talent!!
