Nicole’s husband Keith Urban has released his own men’s cologne, and in a new interview promoting it, he of course mentioned that Nic has smelt it! What does she think?
Urban’s father hasn’t smelled Phoenix yet, but his wife has.
And she likes it? “She does. Certainly that was my first point of reference.”
- Read the rest of Keith’s interview here (no further mention of Nicole).
Nicole talks about her good friend Wendi Deng in the new October issue of British Vogue, and below are some excerpts of Nicole’s quotes:
THEY are two of the most successful women in the world but it was loneliness that brought the actress Nicole Kidman and the businesswoman Wendi Deng together.
Kidman has revealed the depth of their friendship, which began after Deng married the media magnate Rupert Murdoch in 1999. Two years after that marriage, Kidman divorced her husband, Tom Cruise.
”I think we were both lonely and kind of isolated – Wendi in this big new powerful world, and it was a time in my life where I was very exposed,” Kidman tells the October edition of British Vogue, which features an extensive profile of Deng.
”We just clicked. We understood each other. I sort of had a feeling for the psychology of Wendi.”
While Kidman was raised on the north shore and Deng grew up in a poor area of China, the actress said their views were remarkably similar.

Entertainment Weekly have a first look at some of Hollywood’s most exciting upcoming projects, and they have included Hemingway & Gelhorn! There is a small blurb about the characters’ relationship (read that below), plus a brand new photo which is our first official still look at the movie! I’m sure you’ll agree that Nicole looks beautiful, and she and Clive Owen look like they will be brilliant together in this.
IMDB is currently listing Hemingway & Gelhorn‘s air date as May 2012.
Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman Channel Hemingway and Gellhorn
Kidman plays Martha Gellhorn, a celebrated war correspondent and the third wife of Ernest Hemingway (Owen), in HBO Films’ Hemingway & Gellhorn (out next year). The story trails their passionate, often rocky relationship during the Spanish Civil War and beyond. ”Even though Hemingway is synonymous with manly virtue, she outdid him in many ways,” says director Philip Kaufman. ”Her boldness and fearlessness were way ahead of their times.” â€” Archana Ram

Actress Olivia Wilde is shooting a documentary about women living and working in Kenya’s most impoverished areas.
The Tron: Legacy star has interviewed female entrepreneurs and toured the Kibera School for Girls in the run-down slums of Nairobi for TV documentary Half the Sky, which she is shooting with writer Nicholas D. Kristof.
The actress also met with women working at the Jamii Bora organisation, which seeks to eliminate poverty through microfinancing, and admits she was inspired by the visit.
In a post on her Twitter.com page, she writes, “Spent the day in Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya, with the strong women of the Jamii Bora micro financing org. My mind is officially blown.”
Actresses Diane Lane, America Ferrera and Nicole Kidman are also filming installments for the Half the Sky documentary.
Another small update now, but a good one! I’ve added a few new photoshoot pictures, from Nic’s 2009 Ladies Home Journal shoot, and the photoshoot used to promote the Village Shopping Mall in Rio de Janeiro last year. The last 2 Ladies Home Journal pics are so pretty, and the Village Shopping Mall additions have some fun shots, plus some very stunning ones in which Nic shows off her enviable legs!
Just a quick note – if you’re going to re-post these on Tumblr, which we know you do – please, please give us a credit link back! It’d make us very happy
