Speaking to Starr about the chance meeting, Studio 10’s Sarah Harris asked: ‘When it first happened were you going, ‘What’s going on? Is she flirting with my boy?” 

Beaming, Starr replied: ‘It was a bit strange because Matt was dusty, he had his Christmas party the night before.’ 

‘She was chatting to us, I am a chatty person and I thought, ‘it’s is so lovely of this random person to say that [my boyfriend should be an actor]… and at the same time I thought, ‘surely that’s not the girl from the ING ads?”

When it finally dawned on her that the woman was in fact Isla, Starr was left dumbfounded.  

‘Who would have thought Isla Fisher is standing in front of me at Maroubra? And as it all started to unfold, they were getting in the car, and Sacha Baron Cohen just looks over at us, and he had the cheekiest smirk on his face!’ 

‘Like, he was watching us realise what happened. And we were sitting there, like, ‘what is going on?” she exclaimed.
