Welcome to Nicole's Magic
Welcome to Nicole's Magic, a fansite for the spectacular spectacular Academy Award winning Australian actress Nicole Kidman. Nicole is one of the most sought-after actresses of her generation, and is known for her roles in Moulin Rouge, The Hours and To Die For, and has recently been seen in the controversial thrillers Stoker and The Paperboy.
Nicole's Magic is the largest and most comprehensive fansite for Nicole, and is dedicated to supporting her and her career. As of March 2013, Nicole's Magic is entering a new phase of its fansite life, now focussing on paying tribute to Nicole's career up to and including 2006. Read more about what this entails here, and how you can keep up to date with her current career here. Nicole is our favourite actress, and we feel that this way we can provide a highly extensive and worthy tribute to this incredible woman. Comments, suggestions, sparkling diamonds, elephant love medleys and contributions are always more than welcomed so please contact me if you have anything to say. Enjoy your visit, add us to your Favourites and come back again soon!
NB: As part of our site overhaul, all of our content is moving over to a new system. While these changes take place many of the pages within this site will not work/give errors - please be patient as I work to fix them as quickly as I can!
As part of a bi-monthly feature here at Nicole's Magic, each month we will be taking a look back at one of Nicole's films or acting projects. Nicole has an immense body of work behind her, and there's no better way to be reminded of her talent and how much we love her than immersing ourselves and taking an in depth look at those works.

It’s beginning to look a lot like a major Hollywood awards show.
While news broke earlier today that Jennifer Lopez and hubby Marc Anthony may be among the celebs rubbing elbows with Prince William and Kate Middleton at Saturday’s big BAFTA gala, I can exclusively report that…
Nicole Kidman, Tom Hanks, Kristin Chenoweth, Derek Hough, Ginnifer Goodwin and Dana Delany will definitely be there.
Sources also tell me that Jack Black is likely to attend.
As for J. Lo and Anthony’s appearance, a source tells me that they aren’t confirmed just yet, but their glam squad has been put on hold. US Weekly also reports that the couple may even be sitting with the Duke and Duchess, but sources tell me that is highly unlikely.
The BAFTA Brits to Watch event will celebrate 42 emerging Brits in Hollywood. The red carpet event will take place at the Belasco Theater in downtown Los Angeles after the royal couple head back to the city from Santa Barbara, where the prince will compete in a charity polo match.
We’ll be livestreaming the BAFTAs red carpet, so check back at E! Online Saturday at 6:30 p.m. for all the action.
The Paperboy is running into some delivery issues.
The drama, being directed by Precious helmer Lee Daniels, was to have starred Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, Tobey Maguire and Sofia Vergara, with production scheduled to begin later this summer.
But Maguire dropped out of the project last week, throwing a wrench into the proceedings and causing the shoot to be pushed back. The delay then intruded on Vergara’s Modern Family shooting schedule, prompting her to drop out of Paperboy on Friday.
But the producers are acting quickly to buttress up the cast and are now in talks with Nicole Kidman to step into Vergara’s shoes. McConaughey and Efron are still in at this point.
Paperboy centers on a reporter and his brother who investigate the events surrounding a murder in order to exonerate a man on death row. Kidman, if her deal can be made, will play a woman with a dark side who writes letters to men on death row. She brings the case to the attention of the reporter, developing a relationship with him.
Kidman, repped by CAA and Media Talent Group, recently wrapped production on Hemingway and Gellhorn, HBO Films’ romancer in which she plays war correspondent Martha Gellhorn to Clive Owen’s Ernest Hemingway.
Millennium Entertainment has acquired U.S. rights to Joel Schumacher’s thriller “Trespass,” starring Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman, and plans a fall release.
Pic also stars Ben Mendelsohn, Cam Gigandet and Liana Liberato.
Karl Gajdusek wrote the screenplay for “Trespass” for the Nu Image/Millennium Films project, produced by Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Danny Dimbort, Irwin Winkler, David Winkler, Boaz Davidson, Rene Besson, and Matthew F. Leonetti Jr.
Story centers on a man who has everything — a beautiful wife, a teenage daughter, a lavish estate — and is confronted with the reality of losing it all when he and his family become the victims of a vicious home invasion.
“Trespass” is the fourth collaboration between Cage and Nu Image/Millennium following “Drive Angry,” “The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” and “The Wicker Man.”
Millennium, founded in April 2010 and led by Bill Lee, has been beefing up its release schedule recently with two other titles set for fall release — legal drama “Puncture,” starring Chris Evans and directed by Adam Kassen and Mark Kassen; and Elgin James’ “Little Birds,” starring Juno Temple, Kay Panabaker, with Kate Bosworth and Leslie Mann.
The company’s first theatrical release came in April with “Trust,” starring Clive Owen, Catherine Keener and Viola Davis.
Millennium operates a library of more than 1,000 titles including “Paris, Je t’aime,” “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” and “Shadows and Lies.”
Today is our beloved Nicole’s 44th birthday, and we want to wish her a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Nicole, we hope you spend a perfect day with your loved ones and that they spoil you, because you deserve it!! And we hope that the year ahead brings you continued happiness and success in all that you choose to do. Thank you for sharing your talents with us and proving time and time again that you are an incomparable actress and woman.
It IS hard to imagine the next year could be any better for Nicole than this past year has been, but she has some very exciting sounding projects in the works and the future certainly looks bright!
Our Birthday Project to celebrate Nic’s special day is now complete, and all entries have been added for everyone to view! Thank you to everyone who sent something in – it’s so wonderful to be able to add so many fantastic messages.
I have a multi-tude of Gallery updates for you today! Yesterday I asked on our Twitter account what kind of updates you’d like to see here, and the replies you sent were new photos, old photos and content updates. Content updates are in the works, so today I have gallery updates of something old and something new(ish). These updates consist of new additions and HQ replacements for pictures we previously only had in MQ (medium quality/normal size) … a mismatch of both.
Starting with ‘new’ photos – fairly new, anyway – I’ve added a ton more photos from Nicole’s glorious return to the Oscar Nominees Luncheon this year, including a fantastic posed photo of Nic and her other Best Actress nominees, thanks to my friend Maria. Then, zooming back a whole 20 years, we have additional photos, most of which are HQ, from the 1991 Oscar Awards, which was the 2nd time Nic attended the event. This includes a couple of HQ photos of Nic & Tom talking to Jodie Foster at the after-party. More old photos come in the form of additions from 1992′s Strictly Ballroom premiere, and 1997′s The Peacemaker premiere. Most of the Strictly Ballroom additions are HQ. The The Peacemaker additions give us a better look at Nicole on the red carpet at that event, with some better full length shots of her dress.
I then decided to continue with our ‘Favourites’ theme, and have re-organised and updated our gallery albums from the 2002 Sundance Film Festival. These are some of my all-time favourite photos of Nic, as she looks so gorgeous and has such a beautiful smile on her face … and she’s also promoting one of my favourite films of hers – Birthday Girl. The photos have been sorted into correct albums for the press conference, screening and party for the film.
Finally, I’ve added screencaps from the recent video message Nicole posted for fans on her official website.

… can describe this new layout!! I really can’t say much more than that about this incredible new layout to celebrate Moulin Rouge‘s 10th anniversary and Nicole’s upcoming birthday, courtesy of Mycah. I’m in awe of it, and hope you will be as mesmerised with it as I am.
The sidebar has been spruced up a bit for this new layout, including a little ‘We <3 Moulin Rouge' part, with some of my favourite quotes, lyrics, pieces of trivia and photos relating to the film. In true Moulin Rouge style, we are going all out to celebrate this movie!
Do you want more Moulin Rouge treats? If you do, you’re in the right place. You might want to check back tomorrow…
In the meantime, leave a comment with your thoughts on our new design!
