The Bachelorette actress, who is married to Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen, admitted that shortly after she appeared in 2005 comedy Wedding Crashers the rejections started coming thick and fast - but she now thinks it might have been for the best, reported Just Jared.

She told Women's Health magazine: "After Wedding Crashers, I had 12 months where I was auditioning three times a day and I didn't get a single job. That was a real low point.

"But with hindsight, those movies turned out to be awful, so I dodged a bullet. If I'd got any of them, I wouldn't be where I am today."

The 36-year-old mum-of-two said she "never had the chutzpah to just come to LA and make it".

"I didn't have that confidence. I'm always surprised when I get a job. I never saw this in my horizon," she said.

Isla's upcoming movies include drama The Great Gatsby and thriller Now You See Me.
