Australian actress Isla Fisher believes that women can’t have it all and shouldn’t want to when it comes to work and motherhood.

Talking to Gotham magazine, the mother of two said she had no hesitation taking time out from acting to raise her daughters with husband Sacha Baron Cohen, Olive, 5, and Elula, 2.

“I took three years off. It's not like you're taking a break and looking on IMDbPro to see your StarMeter falling. You're doing the most important, incredible thing,” she says.

“When you come back in, the perspective has changed. I truly believe you can't have it all and you shouldn't want to.”

Isla, who will next star in Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, is clearly still very passionate about her acting career, telling the magazine that working with the Aussie director was extraordinary.

“It was thrilling and terrifying. Given the caliber of the director and cast on Gatsby, I definitely felt out of my comfort zone. I did feel like I was going to be called out and sent home at some point — you always feel very insecure, at least I do,” she says.

“The set was like a playground of rich costumes [created by Baz’s wife, Catherine Martin] and colour and music and laughter.

“Everybody cares on a Baz Luhrmann film set because everyone is so effing grateful to be there.”

The 37-year-old also spoke of her relationship with her husband, whom she highly respects.

However, she says she would never have a comedic collaboration with him.

“Personally, I think we collaborate on enough behind closed doors,” she laughs.

“We’re working on some really important collaborations, and I think that’s more important.”
