Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher's Relationship Timeline as They Celebrate 20 Years Together
Sacha Baron Cohen and his wife Isla Fisher have been together for two decades.
The married couple celebrated their 20 years together by sharing a gallery of pictures and matching captions on their socials on December 8, 2021.
"Happy Anniversary," they wrote on the posts. The pair also added a Winnie the Pooh quote that read, "If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart. I'll stay there forever."
While Fisher uploaded the post with just that caption, Cohen added an extra message for his wife. "Happy Anniversary my love," he penned, joking he was writing it rather than getting her a card.
The Dictator actor also quipped that their relationship lasted mainly because of their location. He humorously explained Hollywood was the bastion of lengthy marriages.
Needless to say, the pair has been in an enduring relationship that dates back to the early 2000s.

"I just feel so safe, I suppose the word is cozy when I'm in Australia," she reasoned, adding that it was where she grew up.

As per her accounts, she didn't feel any pressure in Australia. She could do anything and didn't even have to wear shoes all the time.
