Hollywood couple Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher announced that they had gone their separate ways after 14 years of marriage.

On their Instagram story, the couple released a joint statement announcing that they had ended their more than 20-year relationship last year. 


“After a long tennis match lasting over twenty years, we are finally putting our racquets down. In 2023, we jointly filed to end our marriage,” they wrote. 


The ex-couple, who share three children together, asked everyone to respect their family’s privacy as they go through their separation.

“We have always prioritized our privacy, and have been quietly working through this change. We forever share in our devotion and love for our children. We sincerely appreciate your respecting our family’s wish for privacy.” they said.

The actor-comedian and the “Confessions of a Shopaholic” actress tied the knot on March 15, 2010, nine years after they met at a party.

Baron Cohen said in a 2020 interview with the New York Times that he admired his ex-wife’s humor and knew “she’s the one” since they first met.

“She was hilarious. We were at a very pretentious party, and me and her bonded over taking the mick out of the other people in the party. I knew instantly. I don’t know if she did. It’s taken her about 20 years to know.” he said.

Fisher also previously said that she loved being married, as it is a beautiful institution that a couple in love can share.


“Choosing to be together every day is incredibly romantic. I love marriage. I think it’s a wonderful institution, and it’s the most important decision you make. Life is filled with highs and lows, and you have a best friend to share it with you. It’s amazing. It’s like winning the lottery, having a good partner.” she told the Sunday Telegraph at the time.

Meanwhile, Baron Cohen was recently dogged by sexual allegations as his former co-star Rebel Wilson revealed in her new memoir that the actor “sexually harassed” her during their filming of “Grimsby.”
