Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher announce shock split after 20 years together

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher announce shock split after 20 years together

The Hollywood pair were married for over 13 years

Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen have announced a shock split after 20 years together.

The Hollywood couple share three children together and have been married for over 13 years.

They met back in 2001 at a party in Sydney, Australia, before they were each launched into the spotlight - him for 2006's Borat (of course) and she for Wedding Crashers in 2005.

The actors say they jointly filed for a divorce last year.

Fisher and Baron Cohen announced the update on their relationship with a joint statement on Instagram.

It read: "After a long tennis match lasting over twenty years, we are finally putting our racquets down. In 2023 we jointly filed to end our marriage.

"We have always prioritized our privacy, and have been quietly working through this change.

"We forever share in our devotion and love for our children. We sincerely appreciate your respecting our family’s wish for privacy."

Keeping things a little light hearted, the statement was accompanied by a picture of the pair kitted out in tennis wear.


The news of their separation comes not long after the release of Rebel Wilson's memoir, where she alleged Cohen had repeatedly asked her to do nude scenes among other claims. He has denied these allegations.

Wilson named Baron Cohen as the 'a**hole' in Rebel Rising, and said he was 'trying to stop press coming out' about her book.

She says these allegations, including him wanting her to 'stick [her] finger up [his] a**', took place while they were filming 2016's The Brothers Grimsby.

A spokesperson for the Baron Cohen told The Hollywood Reporter: "While we appreciate the importance of speaking out, these demonstrably false claims are directly contradicted by extensive detailed evidence, including contemporaneous documents, film footage, and eyewitness accounts from those present before, during and after the production of The Brothers Grimsby."
