I had no helping hand in Hollywood: Isla Fisher
Los Angeles, June 1 (IANS) Actress Isla Fisher admits she received "no helping hand" when she was trying to carve a niche as an actress in Hollywood.
The "Confessions of a Shopaholic" actress admits she struggled to gain recognition when she first moved to Hollywood, and that she was even turned down by her husband Sacha Baron Cohen's agent, reports contactmusic.com.
"I really have had no help. In fact, the one time I did ask for help was after my agent in LA fired me. I was auditioning for all sorts of things but kept getting told 'no', so she just fired me," she told Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine.
"So anyway, I said to Sacha, who was my boyfriend at the time, 'Can you ask your agent if they'll represent me?' And his agent said, 'No way'. It was the only favour I'd ever asked, and I was like, 'OK... great'. But it spurred me on.
"I've had no helping hand in Hollywood. But in general I've found that when it comes to getting jobs, what's meant for you can't pass you by," she added.
