Workplace Romance in Confessions of a Shopaholic

Who's Right About Office Love: Isla Fisher or Hugh Dancy?


The much buzzed about Confessions of a Shopaholic comes out tonight and I can't wait to get my cute movie fix. Isla Fisher plays the movie's heroine, Rebecca Bloomwood, while Hugh Dancy plays Rebecca's boss and love interest. There's lots of scripted chemistry, but the costars' off-screen characters seemed divided in their opinions of workplace romance when they were asked about the issue while promoting their film.

Isla's take on office love:

I think it works out very well for Rebecca Bloomwood in the story because Luke Brandon actually uncovers her voice and helps her to fulfill her . . . Personally, I’m not a fan of romance in the workplace because, you know, you start seeing someone everyday.

Hugh's take:

Work-based romance? As long as it’s legal, I think it’s okay. . . We’ve all had our own share of work-based romance I expect. I think as long as there’s actually some romance in it, as long as that’s not just a euphemism for something else entirely, it’s probably a good thing.
