"You've got to always make sure you're going for the joke."

Isla Fisher may be best known as the crazy redhead in 'Wedding Crashers' and Sacha Baron Cohen's fiancée, but she just might become Hollywood's next big leading lady with her starring role in the chick lit-inspired 'Confessions of a Shopaholic.'

Raised in Australia, Fisher landed her first big role Down Under on the soap opera 'Home and Away.' But she longed to be a comedian, so she moved to Paris and studied clowning (really!). Since her breakout performance in 'Wedding Crashers,' the actress has found herself living under a microscope because of her relationship with Cohen, with whom she has a 16-month-old daughter, Olive.

The private star opens up about her love of comedy (and her family), what it took to become a 'Shopaholic' and who's really the funny one at home.
