Amy Adams is an American actress who is known for films such as Enchanted and American Hustle. The two both appeared in the 2016 film Nocturnal Animals. Even though both actresses are completely different, their similar look has caused confusion among the public. Fisher has often talked about being mistaken for Adams and one moment involved none other than Lady Gaga. The situation was extremely awkward and ended with Adams herself walking into the room.
Isla Fisher Does A Comedic PSA On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Asking People To Stop Confusing Her With Amy Adams
When celebrities have to deal with rumors and scandal, there are all sorts of ways to handle it. In some cases, an interview can clear things up pretty easily. Other times, a simple written statement can do the trick. Engaging in comedic skits where one laughs at themselves is an even more effective tool.
This is the tool Isla Fisher chose, but not to deal with scandal. Actually, Fisher was responding to the many people who constantly confuse her with Amy Adams. When appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Fisher was asked about the comparisons and spoke about times she has been mistaken for the actress. Fisher even said she was mistaken for Adams while breastfeeding her child in public. Fisher concluded her segment on the show with a comedic PSA, informing the audience the two actresses are quite different.
“Hello, I’m Isla Fisher and I’d like to clear something up. I am not Amy Adams,” she began. “Amy Adams and I are completely different people. Let me explain. Amy Adams has auburn red, my hair is light auburn red. Amy Adams played Susan in Nocturnal Animals. I played Laura in Nocturnal Animals. Amy Adams has five Oscar nominations. I am a member of SAG. Fisher even joked that she too sometimes gets Adams confused with other people.
Amy Adams played Maya in Zero Dark Thirty,” Fisher said before realizing she made a mistake. “Oh wait, no, that was Jessica Chastain. OK, maybe it’s a little hard to tell us apart.”
Lady Gaga Mistook Isla Fisher For Amy Adams While Meeting Her In Person, Then Amy Showed Up
Fisher commonly experiences strangers in public confusing her with Adams. However, one moment involved another famous star and it certainly left an impression. While speaking to Kimmel, Fisher told a story about an experience she had at the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar party. Fisher’s situation almost got worse when Gaga began asking about her performance in the film. However, Fisher was saved when none other than Adams herself showed up to the party.
When asked by Kimmel if Gaga ever realized her mistake, Fisher replied, “She will now.” Isla And Amy Know Each Other In Real Life And Laugh About The Comparisons
While Fisher has experienced plenty of uncomfortable situations as a result of this confusion, she has maintained a sense of humor about it all. While appearing on the Australian talk show The Project in 2021, Fisher joked about how the pandemic put a pause on those uncomfortable encounters with fans of Adams.
When asked about the comparisons, Fisher said, “I haven’t had it for a while, but I think I’ve been inside my house in COVID for a year.” She added, “Now, to be honest, I look forward to being recognized as anyone. I look forward to being out and about.” Fisher even said that she and Adams have laughed about the comparisons.
“We laugh about it because Amy has blue eyes and I’ve got brown, our husbands have laughed about it, too.” Adams had a similar response when asked about the comparisons in a 2013 Vanity Fair interview. I get Isla Fisher all the time, still. And I know Isla, and for a while our kids went to the same dance school. When I’m with Isla, we both look at one another and I get it but I don’t get it,” Adams said. “But just like I tell her, it could be a lot worse. I could be mistaken for a lot worse people.”
