Isla Fisher Dishes on Wedding Plans

The future Mrs. Borat, Isla Fisher is talking to Allure magazine about her upcoming nuptials to Sacha Baron Cohen.

In the interview she gushes about her wedding plans, keeping the ceremony private, and how she's converted to Judaism from Methodism.
Here are some highlights from the interview:

On planning the wedding:

"We are going to get married, really, really, even more now than ever. We have been talking about it and we have been very close, but it has been difficult to plan."

On keeping the ceremony private:

"It is very important to me to have a beautiful ritual celebrated with all my family and friends, and to feel part of a community. And when you are in the public eye, to keep that private and to make it happen without it being really visible is really difficult."

On converting to Judaism from Methodism:

"I converted as of two years ago. It is always reported that I am still studying, so I am either the slowest studier in the world, or I have, in fact, converted."

On taking on the Hebrew name Ayala or "Doe":

"I never saw it as a losing or gaining situation, just an embracing situation. I think if one wanted to be buried next to one's beloved and they were Jewish, then one would have to be Jewish, too."
