Isla Fisher's Real-Life 'Confessions of a Shopaholic'

Isla Fisher brings the popular Sophie Kinsella novel Confessions of a Shopaholic to theaters everywhere February 13 -- but does she have the shopping bug in real life?

"I don't have the shopping bug; I shop rarely and poorly," the 'Wedding Crashers' star admits to ET's Thea Andrews. "But I do relate to [my character]. She's someone who wants to make the world more beautiful. She has a passion for fashion. She hasn't really found the confidence yet to have her own voice and know who she is, and throughout the movie and through meeting [Hugh Dancy's romantic interest], she comes to terms with all that."

Blockbuster producer Jerry Bruckheimer produces the charming story about a girl whose obsession with having a designer wardrobe stretches her credit card limits to the max. When she lands a job writing an advice column at a prestigious Manhattan financial magazine, her dreams start to come true -- but can she keep her job and land her ideal man too?

Despite the romance, fashion and fun, does Isla think that the prevailing economy woes will affect the movie's box office appeal?

"It's just some escapist fun, and hopefully people will feel like they can get out and enjoy a movie despite the fact that we're in this situation," she says.

The film also stars Leslie Bibb, Joan Cusack, Kristin Scott Thomas, John Lithgow and John Goodman and is directed by P.J. Hogan ('My Best Friend's Wedding').
