Hands up who enjoyed the London Olympics Opening Ceremony?! Nic and her husband did too, it seems! Keith tweeted earlier this evening that he and Nic were at the ceremony, and he has since posted a short hand-filmed clip of his surroundings for the evening, including a short shot of Nic doing a little dance ….
Lots of good new stuff from The Paperboy today for us! An official site for the film has been launched, and can be found at www.thepaperboy-movie.com, as well as a Facebook page here. The website announces that the first trailer for the film will premiere online at Yahoo! Movies on August 1st, which is next Wednesday … we’re counting the days! The website and Facebook page have new stills from the film, which have been added to our Gallery as well.
Not sure how new this article is, or whether it is older quotes mashed up together, but still, it’s something to read
Nicole Kidman is attracted to people with “slight imperfections”.
The Hollywood beauty is married to country singer Keith Urban and the pair have daughters Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret together.
Nicole loves her close-knit family and has revealed what qualities attract her to someone.
“I’m a person that’s usually drawn to people who have slight imperfections. I just find them more interesting. I want a very deep, intimate, monogamous relationship. I want that. That’s what I cultivate in my life,” she gushed in an interview with the British edition of OK! magazine. “I want to raise children. I love children and I love raising children.
“You know, I’d like to think I am a person that’s drawn to her home. I like to be at home with my family, I like the peace of a family life.”
Nicole, 45, is one of the most celebrated Hollywood actresses of her generation. Despite her popularity, the star would never want someone to make a movie about her life.
“Oh no… I wouldn’t want to see my life on screen. Being an actor is playing other people’s lives. Having my life and being as private and quiet as possible, I like that a lot. I protect that,” she said.
In Soho, London’s buzzing restaurant and nightlife district, luxury watchmaker Omega, the Olympics’ official time-keeper, will be hosting its own A-list soirees in a specially-refurbished townhouse until the end of the games on Aug 12. Kidman is expected at a launch party on July 28, while a space-themed bash on Aug. 2 will feature American astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Gene Cernan and Tom Stafford. A publicist said other guests will include swimmer Michael Phelps and Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan.
The new Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, hits cinemas today, and it has inspired me to make an update relating to Nicole’s Batman film, Batman Forever! Nicole starred in the 1995 movie as Chase Meridian, a criminal psychologist who allies herself with Batman, who in this movie was played by Val Kilmer. Nicole described her character as someone who has “the perfect blonde hair and the red lips and wears these sort of tight black dresses … [and] … dresses like Jessica Rabbit.” She added that “It is one of those movies where you just go ‘let’s have fun’”, and admits that she found some of the scenes un-believable whilst filming. The movie made $336m at the box office worldwide, including over $184m in the US.
I was reminded of something that our fantastic visitor Hamish sent me ages ago, that I have accidently kept forgetting to add, and thought this would be a good time. Hamish kindly sent us scans of the extremely rare full set of Batman Forever promotional photoshoot pictures. Nicole is seen posing seductively with Batman himself, and against the Riddler’s question mark prop. Some of these photos are scans of the original transparencies of the shoot, and others are in perfect high quality, but all photos are certainly worth a look. A really huge thank you goes to Hamish for sending us these – they are super duper rare, and such a fantastic addition to our site!!
As I said, these are rare and exclusive, so please be nice and don’t re-post them elsewhere – thank you!
Another official reaction press release from her said:
“Thank you Academy. I am so happy to share this nomination with Clive [Owen]. It is a true acknowledgment of Martha Gelhorn’s life and amazing work. Discovering and playing her, under the guidance and passion of the great Phil Kaufman, was a joy and a privilege.”
- Nicole Kidman
And Clive Owen also reacted to his nomination:
“I am really thrilled to be nominated for ‘Hemingway and Gellhorn.’ I had such a great time working with the brilliant Phil Kaufman and the wonderful Nicole Kidman.”
The LA Times also have an article about the news, as well as another quote from Nic. I am intrigued by the mention of a ‘risque photoshoot’, and can’t help but wonder if it is for V magazine … or is it too late to be for that, seeing as how she’s meant to be on the September cover (which would come out early August). Hopefully all will be revealed soon!
Back to Emmy news, and I’ve updated our original post about the nominations below with a screencap of the announcement, and a link to watch a replay of it.
Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen were together for the lengthy three-and-a-half month San Francisco shoot for the HBO movie “Hemingway & Gellhorn,” but on Emmy nomination morning they were worlds apart. Owen was vacationing in the English countryside with his family while Kidman was sweltering at home in the punishing heat of Nashville.
Kidman, who was nominated for lead actress in a miniseries or movie for playing journalist and wife of Ernest Hemingway, Martha Gellhorn, wasn’t expecting the call to tell her about the nomination. In fact, she thought the phone ringing was her publicist calling to tell her that the risque photo shoot she’d done the day before was a mistake.
How risque was the shoot?
“Oh, you know, what’s risque for me is probably not risque for the world,” she said.
