Isla Fisher says her marriage to Sacha Baron Cohen isn't "normal".

The Bachelorette actress claims being married to the controversial comedian means she constantly worries about his safety as well as their financial wellbeing because of the risky nature of his films.

She laughed: "It's definitely not a normal relationship. You know there have been times in the past with the guerrilla style film making of Borat and Bruno where there were surreal conversations, 'How many people are suing us? Are you wanted in any states? Are you alive?'"

The couple have their hands full raising five-year-old daughter Olive and Elula, two, and Isla admits her family is now a priority over landing major film roles because being a mother is such a full-time job.

She explained: "I breastfed both my kids for two years so, you know it was very tiring emotionally and physically.

"I'm not sure I'd want to do another lead at this juncture in my life.

It's why ensemble pieces are so attractive to me."

The flame-haired star converted to Judaism for Sacha in 2007, five years after they met, and admits her adopted religion is perfectly in keeping in with her family-centric ethos.

Isla added in an interview with C magazine: "I love the focus on family, food and laughter. You know, I didn't get to go to university because I've been acting since I was a kid.

"So for me, studying theology was also fascinating. I love Judaism."
