Are Amy Adams and Isla Fisher Related?

By now, it’s become pretty common to see certain Hollywood stars look identical to one another. 

It’s happened with Jesse Plemons and Matt Damon, Emma Mackey and Margot Robbie, Billie Eilish and Cillian Murphy, and the most recent example, Amy Adams and Isla Fisher. 

More often than not, it will turn out that these stars aren’t related in any way, but this doesn’t apply to all situations. 

In this article, we will check out if Amy Adams and her celeb doppelganger Isla Fisher are related. 

Who is Amy Adams?

Amy Lou Adams is an American actress born in Vicenza on August 20, 1974. The “Enchanted” star began her career in 1994 as a dancer in the dinner theatre.

Amy is a well-respected actress who has many movies of different genres under her belt, both drama and comedy.

Her movie debut happened in 1999 in the dark comedy movie “Drop Dead Gorgeous,” in which she had a supporting role.

Just a couple of years later, in 2002, she secured her first major role in Steven Spielberg’s classic “Catch Me If You Can.”

After her brilliant performance in “Catch Me If You Can,” her next major and breakthrough role came in 2005 when she appeared in the independent comedy-drama “Junebug.”

That’s when her career started to blossom and she started to land gigs in many popular movies such as “Enchanted,” “Doubt,” and “Big Eyes.”

Amy has also won many awards throughout her successful career, such as two Golden Globe Awards, six Academy Awards, and even seven British Academy Film Awards.

Who is Isla Fisher?

Isla Lang Fisher is an Australian actress and author born in Muscat on February 3, 1976.

She started her on-screen career at the age of six as she appeared in many Australian TV commercials. 

For her work on the 1994 Australian soap opera “Home and Away,” Isla received worldwide recognition and she received two Logie Award nominations.

At one point, Isla decided to move to the US and audition for Hollywood movies. She made her debut a success as she appeared in the live-action adaptation of “Scooby-Doo,” playing Mary Jane.

Since then, Isla has appeared in more than 60 movies and TV series. Some of her most memorable appearances are definitely in “The Great Gatsby, Now You See Me,” “Tag,” “Ringo,” and “Keeping Up with the Joneses.”

Are Isla Fisher and Amy Adams Related?

To make things clear right away, even though they almost look the same, these two are not related. 

Although they are not related, even Isla and Amy often joke about their resemblance.

Even Lady Gaga mistook Isla for Amy and the story behind it is hilarious. It all happened at the annual Vanity Fair Oscar party.

“I was having a good time with my fellow colleagues at the bar all dressed up and at one point, the crowd split and in the middle was Lady Gaga,” Isla said on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

“I looked at her confused as she was heading right for me. We had never met before that. She came up to me and said something like ‘You were brilliant in “American Hustle,” Amy…’ and I just said thank you.”

“What was I supposed to do, correct her? I mean, it’s Lady Gaga. I adore her so much,” Isla added.

At that moment, no other than Amy Adam appeared behind Gaga.

“I accidentally looked behind Gaga and Amy was standing there. I said to Gaga, look its Isla Fisher – she didn’t receive any nominations, she showed up for nothing.”

Even though Isla made a hilarious joke, Gaga never figured out any of it at that moment.
