(This news is a couple of weeks old now, but I never got round to posting it before!)
Nicole Kidman has felt the need to switch up her career — she recently hired Angelina Jolie’s manager Geyer Kosinski of Media Talent Group.
Deadline reports that “Kosinski is known to be very controlling, very secretive, very involved with his clients’ lives (and hates talking to the media).”
In July, the 42-year-old Aussie actress hired PR powerhouse 42 West after having PMK/HBH’s Catherine Olim as her publicist for 15 years.
Kidman, who just in July shook up her PR representation by firing her publicist of 15 years PMK/HBH’s Catherine Olim, hasn’t had a manager since her early days as an actress. She was with Mark Epstein (quite the character) until her career really took off and she went solely with CAA. Kidman is a longtime CAA client, first with Rick Nicita, then with Kevin Huvane. But is history about to repeat itself?
Because what’s interesting here is that Kosinski took Angelina away from CAA. Before Jolie went to CAA in March 2005, she was represented by just the manager. When the pair decided she needed an agent, she met with every major tenpercentery in town, then chose CAA. But then Kosinski yanked her from the agency in April 2006 after she’d spent only 13 months there. Kosinski is known to be very controlling, very secretive, very involved with his clients’ lives (and hates talking to the media).
