‘I’m the happiest when I’m home. I miss it when I’m not here. I don’t feel any pressure when I’m in Australia. I don’t have to say or do or be anything. I mean, I don’t even have to wear shoes,’ the Godmothered star added.

She also briefly touched on motherhood in the interview, a topic which she loves dearly but rarely discusses to protect her children’s privacy. 

Isla shares three children with her comedian husband Sacha Baron Cohen, 49.

Tellingly Isla, who relocated to Los Angeles early on in her career, admitted to the publication at the time: ‘juggling a family in LA isn’t easy.’

‘There’s not really a culture of bringing your kids to dinner parties or to restaurants past 6pm. I tend to entertain at home because I want to be with my family – it’s easier to put your kids to bed and have a wine with friends.’
