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 Sacha Baron Cohen stories.)
