Movie Of The Month
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.

As I posted about briefly last night, Nic attended BAFTA LA’s Award Season Tea Party in Los Angeles yesterday, and she looked super-chic in all black! I’ve now added photos from this event to the Gallery, including 12 gorgeous HQs.
I’m hoping to have time to add the rest of the photos from the Critics’ Choice Awards before the Golden Globes start, but either way, check back here later for more of that and/or Globes coverage In the meantime, scroll back down through the news posts as there have been a few updates already today.
As I mentioned on our Twitter earlier this week, Nicole is on the cover of the January 19th issue of Italian Vanity Fair, and now thanks to Michele we have exclusive scans from it! The spread is gorgeous! It’s not a new photoshoot, but some of the photos are new-old – they’re from this 2003 photoshoot for Interview magazine, and this Vanity Fair features 4 photos from this shoot that we hadn’t seen before! I’ve always wanted to see more from this shoot, and these new shots don’t disappoint! I particularly love the 5th and 6th photos. I can’t tell you what the interview says, or whether it’s new, but maybe one of our Italian visitors can enlighten us a bit.
These scans were made exclusively for Nicole’s Magic so please do not re-post them on other sites/forums/tumblrs etc.
I’m hoping to get a few updates in today, so everything is ready for the Golden Globes tonight! So first up, I’ve added 8 new photos from the photoshoot Nicole and Aaron Eckhart did for the LA Times. I love seeing Nicole and Aaron together, and in the photos of Nicole by herself she looks like a doll don’t you think?
Coming up next, are Italian Vanity Fair scans, more HQs from the Critics’ Choice Awards, and photos from yesterday’s BAFTA LA Tea Party…!
It’s a busy weekend for Nicole! Today she has attended BAFTA LA’s Awards Season Tea in Los Angeles. Only a few pictures have popped up so far, but Nicole is wearing a black top and skinny black trousers, with her loose, wavy hair down. I love this look on her! Very chic. Inside the event she has been photographed with Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky, fellow Aussie Guy Pearce, and best of all, her Birth co-star Danny Huston! Below is the first photo from the event (+ the Birth reunion ) and I’ll add the full set of photos tomorrow.
- Thanks to our forum member ‘porcelain’ for the heads-up on this.
Nicole attended the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards in Los Angeles last night, as a nominee for Best Actress for Rabbit Hole. She looked gorgeous in a draping midnight blue Nina Ricci gown, with her long red hair left naturally down. Nic accessorised with Fred Leighton jewellry. I really like Nicole’s look here … it’s very elegant and highlights her enviable statuesque figure. Nicole seemed to really enjoy being at the event, from the looks of the photos!
The award for Best Actress went, as expected, to Natalie Portman for Black Swan.
The first 50 HQ photos from this event have been added to the Gallery for you enjoy, and make sure you check back tomorrow for more!
This event, and this weekend, seems to mark the start of the major awards season, and I’m so excited to see Nicole right there in the mix! I can’t wait to see what she wears at the Golden Globes tomorrow .. I hope she pulls out all the stops … and opts for some colour! :p
The countdown to Sunday’s 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards is on, and our own Nancy O’Dell and Cojo take you inside the Beverly Hilton as the producers put on the finishing touches — and Cojo makes his fashion predictions!
“Nicole Kidman, the expectations with you are so high, the bar is beyond into the universe and the galaxy,” adds Cojo. “You were once my best-dressed woman in Hollywood. You were so chic. Then you lost your way somehow; you went into bad dressing land. The Globes is a time to redeem yourself. I’ve got a sash and a tiara with me and I’m ready to crown you Miss Golden Globes on the red carpet.”
The Beverly Hilton is buzzing with activity as an army of workers gets the show ready, and Nancy says, “The Golden Globes set is always one of the biggest secrets. It’s never revealed until show time, but I can see the stage in full … and I can tell you the room is filled with those Swarovski crystals.”
The stage features 30,000 crystals shipped from Austria specially for the show, and between all the nominees and presenters, there will be approximately 300 stars at the event, from Brad and Angelina to Alec Baldwin and Renee Zellweger and everybody in between.
“We know the celebrities like to party a little bit at the Golden Globes, so anything could happen,” says Nancy.
Hard to believe, but even movie stars get lonely. Even harder to believe that Nicole Kidman once knew loneliness all too well.
To the public and the paparazzi who swarmed around her as she walked confidently along the red carpets, she was the glamorous, smiling film star who had it all. A gorgeous, Oscar-winning actress earning US$15 million (Dh55.1 million) a movie, she was the envy of women around the world.
Yet at the end of the evening she would go home to an empty house with no one to keep her company.
“When I was alone I became very isolated and felt very lonely and it was difficult to meet someone,” she says, recalling the long, solitary nights. “I realised you can have so many beautiful things around you and if you don’t have someone in your life to share it with, it doesn’t mean that much.”
Then Australian country singing star Keith Urban came into her life and everything changed.
“We were two lonely people who met at a time when we could open up to each other,” she says. “We were a mixture of frightened and brave. It’s hard when you’re alone. When you have someone else in your life it makes it a lot easier. I’m just so grateful I have someone to share the highs and also the lows.”
Nicole Kidman and her Blossom Films partner Per Saari are developing a remake of Alan J. Pakula’s 1973 dramedy “Love and Pain and the Whole Damn Thing,” along with fellow producers Laura Ziskin and Susan Landau, TheWrap has learned.
The project is based on a screenplay by Alvin Sargent, and will be developed as a potential starring vehicle for Kidman.
Maggie Smith and Timothy Bottoms starred in the original film, which followed two tourists in Spain who cross paths and begin to fall for one another. While neither is especially confident in the relationship’s long-term prospects, they eventually develop a unique bond.
Coincidentally, Kidman’s husband Keith Urban dedicated his 2006 album “Love, Pain & The Whole Crazy Thing” to the Oscar-winning actress.
Kidman is currently in the thick of the Oscar race thanks to her devastating turn in John Cameron Mitchell’s “Rabbit Hole,” which she and Saari produced through their company.
