Isla Fisher reveals even Lady Gaga can’t tell her apart from fellow redhead Amy Adams

15

ACTRESS Isla Fisher is so used to being mistaken for fellow film-star Amy Adams, that it’s become a family joke.

The star, who is married to Ali G and Borat creator Sacha Baron-Cohen, revealed that she’s been mistaken for Amy everywhere from Ikea to an Oscars after-party.

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel live recently, Isla joked about how she couldn’t bring herself to correct Lady Gaga when the pop-star made the all-too-easy mix-up.

While schmoozing at a Vanity Fair Oscars party, Isla was congratulated on her performance in American Hustle by the Poker Face singer, but she hadn’t starred in it!

In awe of Lady Gaga, Isla couldn’t bring herself to correct the songstress, and so she silently accepted the compliment and hoped that would be the end of it.

At that moment, the real Amy Adams entered the party and Isla saw her opportunity to create a distraction, pointing her out and exclaiming: “There’s Isla Fisher, she’s not even nominated for anything, what’s she doing here!”

Isla is so used to being mistaken for the other actress that she decided to embrace it, making a spoof public service announcement to help people tell the two apart.

In the same interview, she recalls a time when she was trying to breastfeed her baby in a quiet corner of Ikea, when she was recognised by a family.

Unfortunately the family thought she was Enchanted star, Amy, and asked her to sing a few bars of their favourite song.

Tired and flustered, tone-deaf Isla claims she belted out a few bum notes before the family realised their mistake!

 Smile! Everyone thinks I'm you!

And it doesn’t stop there, she even made family Christmas cards with Amy’s face on them.

She admitted that she cut and pasted Amy’s face over her own in a family picture and sent it out as a festive greeting to friends and family with the message ‘Seasons greetings from Sacha and Isla’.

Isla might have expected her nearest and dearest to notice the error, but she says, no one did!

Amy and Isla starred together in the film Nocturnal Animals in 2016 and often take to the red carpet in similar outfits.

 White dress, red carpet, side parting, clutch bag...they really aren't the same person, honest!
