Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher announced their divorce after 20 years of marriage: why one of the strongest couples in Hollywood broke up

The Hollywood couple of Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher broke up

The relationship of one of the strongest couples in Hollywood, comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and actress Isla Fisher, collapsed after 20 years of marriage, and the reason for this was a number of alleged problems, including quarrels, disagreements over the desired country of further residence, and accusations of sexual harassment by actress Rebel Wilson. The incident became known only recently, although the stars divorced back in 2023.

According to friends of Isla Fisher's to The Sun, the decision to announce the breakup publicly was supposed to ensure the actors' more or less normal reputation and to quiet the public outcry. Instead, Sacha Baron Cohen himself denies all of Rebel Wilson's accusations, published in her memoir Rebel Rising.

The actress notes that the comedian tried to force her to appear nude, despite a special provision prohibiting nudity in the 2016 film The Brothers Grimsby. Later, the star said that after mentioning Baron Cohen in her memoirs, he even threatened her, and she published an angry post on social media: "I will not be intimidated or silenced by precious lawyers or PR managers. "The 'asshole' I talk about in one chapter of my book is Sasha Baron Cohen."

Baron Cohen himself noted that the very nude scene he asked Wilson for was allegedly agreed upon in the script.

The couple announced the divorce in an Instagram story. "After a long tennis match that lasted more than 20 years, we are finally putting down our rackets. In 2023, we filed for divorce together. We have always prioritized our privacy and have been quietly working towards this change. We have always shared our devotion and love for our children. We are sincerely grateful that you are respecting our family's desire for privacy," Isla Fisher wrote.

The Hollywood couple broke up in 2023, but until November, they tried to continue posting photos of themselves together so that their fans would not suspect anything. The last published photo on Isla Fisher's page is dated November 17, 2023. It shows the couple having a great time drinking alcohol.

Another reason for the divorce could be the family's move from Australia, Fisher's homeland, to the UK because of the time it took to fly to Hollywood. "The move back to the UK came out of nowhere. They had been living away from the UK for a while, and they didn't expect to move. But things got more complicated, and as they say, home is where the heart is. Perhaps Sasha thought that this would improve the situation. But it didn't - things just fell apart," friends of the couple told the Daily Mail.

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher met in 2001 at a party in Australia. They got engaged after three years of dating in 2004, when Fisher was 28 and Cohen was 32. For the sake of the "love of her life," Fisher converted to Judaism so that she could get married in 2010. The couple had three children - 17-year-old Olive, 13-year-old Elua, and 9-year-old Montgomery Moses Brian Baron Cohen.
