Australia’s Former Top Model Explores Her Jewish Heritage In Los Angeles

Kate Fischer now lives in Los Angeles.

Here she is on the Dingo Report.

She’s been spotted at Shabbat meals.

Kate has a dramatic personality. It’s almost as though she’s on something.

Here’s a video of Kate explicating Australia’s 1975 constitutional crisis.

Here’s a quick bio:

Australian actress and model Kate Fisher was born on 30 November 1973 in Adelaide Australia and is better known for her engagement to Australia’s richest man James Packer between 1996 and 1998. She is the daughter of Pru Goward, currently a Member of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly.

Fisher’s career kicked off when she starred in the film Sirens alongside actor Hugh Grant and Australian model Elle Macpherson. She also starred in the films The Real Thing and Foreigner. In 1997, a portrait of her was hung in the Archibald Prize by painter Paul William Newton, titled Kate and Barbie. Fischer hosted cartoon show Looney Tunes in the mid-late 1990s. In 2005 Fischer appeared on television show Celebrity Overhaul, a show in which celebrities try to regain their fitness through diet and exercise.

In May 2006 Fischer appeared as a guest judge on Song for the Socceroos and as a contestant on the television show It Takes Two. Since 2005, Fischer has been the face of the AMP group of shopping centers across Australia. In late 2006, Fischer hosted a weekly Top 40 countdown clip show.

Kate Fischer

Here’s her wikipedia entry:

Kate Fischer, aka Katie Fischer, (born on 30 November 1973 in Adelaide, South Australia) is an Australian model and actress. She attended the Canberra Girls’ Grammar School, in Canberra.

She has appeared as one of the stars of the movie Sirens, and has also been in the movies The Real Thing and Foreigner. She is also known for having been engaged to wealthy businessman James Packer.

In 1997, a portrait of her was hung in the Archibald Prize by painter Paul William Newton, titled Kate and Barbie. She was host of Looney Tunes on the Nine Network in the mid-late 1990s.

In 2005 Fischer resurfaced on the Nine Network‘s Celebrity Overhaul, a show in which celebrities try to regain their fitness through good diet and exercise habits. In one episode, she showed she still has what it takes by pole-dancing.[citation needed]

In May 2006 Kate Fischer appeared as a guest judge on the SBS programme Song For The Socceroos [1] and as a contestant on the Channel 7 TV Show It Takes Two. [2]

She is the daughter of Pru Goward, currently a Member of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly

During 2005-2006, she was the face of the AMP group of shopping centres across Australia, before being dropped.

In late 2006, she became the host of a weekly Top 40 countdown clip show on Channel 7, a rival program to Channel 9‘s 20 to 1.

From May 2, 2007:

SHE is hoping to launch a Hollywood career as a comedy writer, but Katie Fischer’s latest effort is laughable for all the wrong reasons.

In the nonsensical nine-minute sketch Supermodel Hotdog, which Fischer wrote and co-stars in, the former Sydney socialite argues with a wannabe actress about which of the duo should dress up as a hotdog.

Fischer, who posted the skit on popular video share website YouTube, ends up donning a skin-tight red leotard and an oversized bun before joining her two castmates in a song about hotdogs.

In a bizarre moment, she also rubs her groin on her male co-star when he is dressed in the hotdog suit and tries to lick her female co-star on the face.

The sketch – which also stars unknown American actors Rena Riffel and Hoyt Richards – was filmed earlier this year in the dining room and courtyard of Fischer’s West Hollywood apartment in a ramshackle 1920s Spanish Colonial-style building.

Fischer’s apartment, which she bought following her split from former fiancee James Packer, is only 200m from famed celebrity hotel Chateau Marmont, which is a home-away-from-home of celebrities including Lindsay Lohan and Olivier Martinez.

Fischer, 33, has been trying to break into the LA acting scene for several years but her last role was a tiny appearance in the 2003 Steven Seagal movie The Foreigner.

From the Daily Telegraph May 4, 2007:

ONCE engaged to Australia’s richest man, Kate Fischer has confessed she’s distraught at being labelled a big-breasted party girl in an extraordinary video.

Kate confessed to two Aussie expats in Hollywood that she’s sick and tired of being portrayed as a party girl lost in LA in a four letter outburst on [the Dingo Report.]

She says she’s tired of being portrayed as the party girl with the boobs and jewellery, lost somewhere in the Hollywood Hills, and that it was time for her to be taken seriously as an artist.

Fischer shouts hysterically, swearing, smoking and flashing her ample cleavage in a cringe-worthy rant.

The former Sydney party girl agreed to be taped by Hollywood-based Australian blogger duo The Dingo Report – after meeting the pair at the Los Angeles dawn service for ANZAC Day on Sunday.

The duo, who purport to be from Broken Hill, said that Fischer had readily agreed to appear in an improv session the following morning.

"She said she was stoked to be asked," the boys wrote on their website.

"She confessed that she’s tired of being portrayed as the party girl with the boobs and jewellery, lost somewhere in the Hollywood Hills – and that it was time for her to be taken seriously as an artist."

Fischer, who swapped her hot dog costume for a breast-baring top and fur coat during the 70-second clip, takes the mickey out of her image but the joke appears to be on her.

"I am Katie f***ing Fischer – I am a big star in Australia," she screams.

"They all know me and love me down there.

"Just because I don’t get any work doesn’t mean they don’t know me anymore – I am still hot."

When The Daily Telegraph online called Fischer yesterday, she was less than happy to chat about her performance in the bizarre podcast.

"Can you not call me anymore – can you call my agent?" Fischer trilled in a sarcastic sing-song voice before hanging up.
