Aside from their daily roles as mum and dad, they have worked together once, in the 2016 action-comedy The Brothers Grimsby (or just Grimsby in the U.K.), in which Cohen played a dim soccer hooligan—naturally he went to the premiere in character—and Fisher an MI-6 agent. 

Asked who her favorite-ever co-star was, Fisher told Hello! in 2018, “I have to pick my husband. I would not want to not pick him. He is my favorite, obviously. We had a really fun time. We shared a trailer and it was just hilarious.”

“Obviously I always respected him,” she added, “but having been around so many big comedy stars and seeing how they improvise and stuff—and then to work with my husband and see him be the best improv comedian I’ve ever worked with, I loved it.”

And though Cohen’s known for being audacious in his work, he’s also perfectly content going unnoticed when he’s just being himself.

“Luckily, we’re not A-list,” he told the New York Times. “I remember once in Hollywood, I was trying to avoid being photographed by paparazzi. I think I put something in front of my face when exiting a restaurant and this photographer shouted, ‘You’re only a B-lister!’ And I said to Isla, ‘Oh, my God, we’re B-listers! We made it! We’re B-listers.'”
