Isla Fisher is setting the record straight once and for all: She is not Amy Adams...nor Jessica Chastain nor the Wendy’s girl.
The Keeping Up with the Joneses actress appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night and revealed it’s not just the fans who confuse her with Amy Adams—even Lady Gaga is guilty. Gasp! Adams Fisher retold the story of her chance encounter with the mystical Gaga at the Vanity Fair Oscar party. She said, “The crowds parted and there was Lady Gaga and she’s heading right towards me. And she says, ‘Thank you. Your performance in American Hustle, Amy, was [amazing].”
But here’s where things get hilariously awkward. Fisher continued, “I look over her shoulder and there’s Amy Adams walking into the party. So I’m like, ‘There’s Isla Fisher.’”
Before concluding their interview, Kimmel revealed that Fisher had a very special parting gift to share with viewers: a public service announcement clarifying the differences that set her and Adams apart. “Let me explain. Amy Adams has auburn red hair; my hair is light auburn red. Amy Adams played Susan in Nocturnal Animals. I played Laura in Nocturnal Animals. Amy Adams has five Oscar nominations. I am a member of SAG,” Fisher said with a hint of exasperation.
Further poking fun at the situation, she added, “Amy Adams played Maya in Zero Dark Thirty. Oh, wait, no, that was Jessica Chastain. OK, maybe it’s a little hard to tell us apart.”
