Nicole Kidman on Martha Gellhorn: She chased tragedies and found love
Nicole Kidman has won an Oscar, a BAFTA and three Golden Globes, but she still needs an Emmy on her mantle. That could show up thanks to her role in HBO’s “Hemingway and Gellhorn” as Martha Gellhorn, the daredevil war correspondent who fell in love and married Ernest Hemingway while dodging bombs and bullets in the Spanish Civil War and World War II.
“That’s when they came alive — when they were in turmoil, when they were in chaos,” Kidman tells Gold Derby via webcam about the literary duo who lived and loved so hard. “That’s when Martha was able to be in love.”
In time, the union failed because the couple couldn’t cope with peaceful lulls between wars. “When they were put into a domestic situation, particularly Martha, she didn’t know how to function,” Kidman says. “She didn’t know what to do. because she needed the energy and her work fed her personally as well as professionally.”
Earlier today in Sydney, Nic attended the Richard Wilkins 25 Year Anniversary Fundraiser For Down Syndrome at the Fox Studios. Richard Wilkins is the Channel 9 Australia Entertainment Editor, I believe. Nic looked chic in a long black dress and lovely red hair, and was accompanied by her husband.
I’ve found and added some additional photos from the Gold Week Telethon that Nicole took part in earlier this week. A few are some nice shots of her posing with children who have been helped by Sydney Children’s Hospital (which the telethon benefitted), and were found on this Facebook.
There’s another sweet shot of Nic posing with a SCH patient here.
THE Sydney Children’s Hospital has just reached its target of $2.2 million in donations for the annual Gold Week telethon.
A $100,000 donation from special guest Nicole Kidman helped smash the target at about 3.30pm this afternoon.
Kidman, an ambassador for the hospital, said she had visited the Randwick centre several times and was always astounded at the strength show by its young patients.
“They are fighting so hard and their families are fighting to keep their family together,” she said.
The morning has included performances from former Australian Idol stars Ricki-Lee Coulter and Damien Leith, who said the hospital needed all the support Sydney could muster.
“I have done a lot of work with the Sydney Children’s Hospital over the last six years so I have got to see first hand all the work that they do and they really need to keep it going – it’s an incredible hospital,” Leith told the Daily Telegraph.
WORK, family and The Voice – Nicole Kidman reveals what’s making her happy.
WHEN Nicole Kidman last attended the Cannes Film Festival in 2003, she was so thrilled to be there she jumped up and down on the bed at the exclusive Hotel du Cap where she was staying.
Reminded of that moment of exuberance, Kidman laughs.
“I now jump on it with Keith,” she tells Insider.
“I don’t have to do it alone.”
Australia’s most famous actor has found a leading man for life in Keith Urban and it’s clear she has never been happier. She’s had two headline-grabbing movies premiere at the prestigious Cannes festival but Kidman is just as pleased that, thanks to his effortlessly charming weekly appearances on The Voice, her Grammy-winning country superstar husband has Australia falling in love with him.
“They should!” Kidman says. “I don’t think they realised how great he is.
“He’s just such an Aussie boy from Caboolture who’s still got that. And talent beyond, I mean you haven’t seen anything yet.”
IPSWICH is about to hit the big screen, thanks to a new movie starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.
Heart-throb Firth was in Brisbane yesterday, speaking to students at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre.
Kidman and Firth, famous for his role as a rich Austen bachelor in Pride and Prejudice, will star in The Railway Man, a story of a man forced to confront his past as a prisoner of war after the fall of Singapore.
The movie has already been filmed in Scotland and Thailand.
Firth plays the tortured role of Scottish soldier Eric Lomax and the Aussie Kidman plays his wife.
Filming for the project is expected to begin at the North Ipswich Rail Workshops and continue on the Gold Coast.
Firth’s female co-star is yet to be sighted, film sources saying her part had been completed in Scotland and Thailand.
Nevertheless, news has sparked excitement in the community, Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale saying Kidman would be treated like royalty if she were to grace the town with her presence.
Film publicist Tracey Mair said the actress would not be joining her male co-stars in the city, after having previously said all the leads would be travelling to Ipswich.
“Kidman’s scenes were actually completed in the UK and Thailand, but the rest of the cast, including Firth, will be filming on the Gold Coast and in Ipswich,” Ms Mair said.

UN Women – 8 June 2012 – UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and Academy award winning actress Nicole Kidman, speaks on the issue of violence against women, and illustrates the efforts of the UN Women-managed UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women, which supports efforts on the ground to end the pandemic.
Academy Award winners Nicole Kidman and Mira Sorvino urged an end to violence against women at a concert Wednesday night to support the U.N. agency that promotes equality for women and an end to attacks against millions of women and girls.
General Assembly President Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser of Qatar brought the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra to the U.N. to celebrate his leadership of the 193-member world body this year and dedicated the concert to supporting UN Women, which came into existence in 2010.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the crowd that “more than half of all women will be victims of violence in their lifetime — beatings, sexual abuse, even murder.”
Al-Nasser said U.N. member states have committed to raising $100 million by 2015 for its trust fund to combat violence against women.
He announced that already this year “generous donations” have been made by Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Libya, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, the Netherlands, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, South Africa, and Switzerland.
