    Isla Fisher wants to give her children a “normal childhood” without “pressure or scrutiny”

    The 45-year-old actress has Olive, 13, Elula, 10, and Montgomery, six, with her husband Sascha Baron Cohen, and has said she’s keen for her children to grow up out of the spotlight as much as possible, despite having two stars for parents

    She told the Australia edition of Marie Claire magazine: "Motherhood is actually my favourite topic, but I keep it private. I think all parents are trying to protect their kids, especially in the social media age. I want our children to have a normal childhood, being able to play outside without pressure or scrutiny.

    “All kids have the right to just be kids, and I would never sell a film or magazine by speaking about [mine]."

    Meanwhile, the ‘Blithe Spirit’ star previously confessed she shuts herself in a closet twice a day so that she can have a moment of peace and quiet to practice meditation away from her noisy brood.

    She said: “I have a closet where I practise my mindfulness meditation. I don’t know if you know how small I am. I’m tiny so I can fit in anywhere.

    “Twenty minutes twice a day, if possible. I focus on my surroundings or breathing because it grounds me in the craziness.

    “I know I am incredibly fortunate even to be able to afford to be in lockdown. The danger that essential health workers have faced is terrible.”

    Isla also admitted she found educating her children a struggle when schools closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    She added: “You think essential apocalypse skills would be learning to light a fire or killing an animal to eat.

    “But no, it’s getting your head round grade four maths and dealing with various IT problems. All these little breakout rooms on Zoom that you have to get in and out of ... nightmare.”
