Australian actress Isla Fisher has two daughters with British comic Sacha Baron Cohen, and since becoming a mom, she says she only signs up for a project if she really loves it.

She said of her new animated role in Rango: “Now that I’m a mum I don’t want to be away from the kids. I only work if I really love the scripts or the character or the director. And yeah, to see yourself as a lizard is a very surreal experience. It was so nice because I was able to enjoy my own performance.

“Normally when you watch yourself on camera, I think at least when you are magnified to that degree you just question why all the features on your face have been clustered together.”

One aspect of the film 35-year-old Isla particularly liked was getting to interact with the other voice actors -- including Johnny Depp and Abigail Breslin -- rather than recording the part of tough country girl Beans in a booth.

She told BANG Showbiz: “Comedy is timing. The timing you get from another performer being opposite you, the chemistry you get with it, the humanity you get from your own voice when you’re looking at a real person versus a microphone. It’s irreplaceable, that kind of energy. It was hugely beneficial, I believe, for all the performances, to be doing them.”
