here here,

I can't say I "hate" nicole, but I am increasingly pissed off at the acolation these film stars get just for being extremely lucky in their lives. They do nothing but be beautiful and encourage anorexia. They have nothing profound to say to the public. they don't do enough good with the millions they earn for making movies. I would have preferred to hear that nicole was taking two million with her to asia's tsunami victims than simply "doing a tour " of the devastation. Lucky victims and survivors they get to meet a movie star instead of getting medical supplies and food and counselling.

Kylie is just as bad, promoting sex as if there's nothing else in life. She's done everything in her videos bar ripping her clothes right off. That's great for the guys and girls growing up thinking that's all there is isn't it? Instead of pouting into the camera , Kylie should be encouraging self confidence and self love to teenagers. and maybe dishing out some of her millions to several charities too. That should be in the papers instead of how great her arse is. Whcih b y the way is only great because you get to see it so much you are brainwashed.
gggrrr

I feel exactly the same way about Hugh Jackman, Mel Gibson and other men of the same ilk! How dare they exploit their good looks and (alleged) talent to make millions of dollars, hoity-toitying around the world dispensing their little pearls of wisdom onto an adoring female public whilst I, chubby, wallflowerish and economically challenged, have to make do in dreary suburbia, desperate for any kind words or acknowledgment of my existence. My heroes of the stage and screen and life in general are the men us ordinary guys can look up to and emulate - Danny DeVito, Woody Allen, John Howard. Men that make us think, "My God! He's even shorter, fatter, more neurotic and duller than I am! If he can do it, so can I". They are inspirations to ordinary men.

Now having said that you couldn't be more wrong about Nicole and Kylie. They are both beautiful. Who cares if they can act? Who cares if they give to charity? There's enough ugly girls around to do that! Who would you rather have played Nic's part in "Eyes Wide Shut", Margaret Whitlam!? I think not. And if Kylie doesn't radiate self confidence and self love, then who does?! I'm sure if you asked the lucky bloke who gets to have sex with Kylie he would tell you that there IS nothing else in life! I'd much rather be brainwashed by Kylie's arse than ABC political commentary.

I can see where Bozzie is coming from (on Kylie, at least ;-), but my empathy lies with Adriana.

I hate Nicole almost as much, but have no idea why. I think I probably hated her all along, and Adriana’s vilification is no causation whatsoever.

Very amusing! Good to see some decent humour in On Line Opinion. I have never understood the Nicole phenomenon either and it is about time we allowed detractors from the Kidman Corporation some press space.

I also believe that if Margaret Whitlam had been cast in "Eyes Wide Shut" it certainly would have made for an interesting interpretation of that role!

Bravo Adriana Maxwell - an excellent piece which gave me a good laugh - I loved it, especially the "Nic Off" campaign buttons!

But, the really interesting thing is, that although Adriana's tome was written in a "tongue-in-cheek" style, it is actually quite true.

Kidman's fame is so totally out of proportion - afterall, she is just one of many, "so called" good looking actors, who married and divorced well, and has made the grade in popular Hollywood movies. With all due respect, this is hardly the stuff of legends!

But, it seems some Australians are determined to make her one. Is this infatuation because she is an Australian who has made it into a few Hollywood movies? That didn't do it for me. Is it because she married Tom Cruise? That, also, didn't do it for me.

So what is all the fuss about I wonder? Is it all to do with our need for cultural identity? I hope not, as making legends out of 30-something, very ordinary, divorced actors is a rather desperate act, and something we don't need to do.

Bravo Adianna???????!! For promoting hate??

While a discussion of the machinations of celebrity is something to visit, to try to make your point by singling out Nicole Kidman with hate is a reflection upon yourself.

Nicole Kidman is not the only celebrity in the Australian weeklies. We have Paris Hilton (non-Australian), Brad and Jen (sadly split), etc etc etc. I am not a fan of such stories myself. Magazines publish these stories without the permission of the celebs involved. Many of these articles are untrue and many reflect badly on the celeb. The celeb is used to sell the magazine. Why turn on the star?

Who knows why one celeb is singled out more than another. Something about the person and their life intrigues others. Why that is so is an interesting subject for discussion and I could name some possible reasons for Nicole but they would be wasted here.

So what if some people here in Ausrtalia and across the world admire 'Our Nic'?

The opinion expressed by the author of this topic is bitchy and uncalled for. Worse, the author could be possibly exploiting Nicole Kidman's fame to big note herself. You used the word "Miaow". How appropriate to you (PS. check your facts before implying Nicole Kidman does not donate).

bozzie, depsite the obvious that they are good looking and great tossing material for you blokes, the point wasn't that. The point was all these celebrities are hailed as super poeple for doing next to nothing.

Aussie2, it is unfair to say that Nicole is “doing next to nothing”. She is closer to “doing it all” than people give her credit for (maybe that’s what we don’t like about her).

Here’s Nicole doing an interview with DeGeneres in today’s SMH. http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2005/01/11/1105423481989.html

This article may well provide more reason to hate Nicole, but not so for her fans. DeGeneres says, "We'll make bumper stickers up that says 'Honk if you love Nicole'."

Very amusing Adrianna! It is about time celebrity hype was put into perspective. I also saw the making of the perfume documentry and as usual was left cold by our Nic. Where do I collect my "Nic off" badge from?

This is absolutely rediculous. Nicole is a wonderful actress, and has accomplished so much, that I just don't understand why you hate her. Is it because she's talented and maybe more beautiful than you??? What you've said about "Our Nic" is completely obnoxious and rude, and you should be ashamed of yourself. Plus, this is completely immature of you. Hope you're proud of yourself. You look and sound like a total idiot!

Courtney is living proof that the Nicole phenomenon is totally out of control. Anyone with any doubts should check out her website (CourtneyLuvsNicole) where she reveals her love for the two most important people in her life - Nicole Kidman and Ricky Martin. She has my sympathy and I rest my case.

P.S. My therapist says that I am a total spunk!

I haven't seen the perfume commercial, but have seen the pictorial ads. The expression on her face makes me think that Nicole's just realised that it's a perfume ad and not a film. I simply couldn't sit through a 'making of' of a perfume ad...is it as annoying as Moulin Rouge in cinematic style?

Whether or not 'everyone' loves 'our Nic' because she embodies some relatively universal desire in western society to be all that a glam movie star is, she is a carefully manufactured product. The person that Nicole Kidman is - unless one is part of a no-doubt treasured inner sanctum of confidantes - remains completely open to debate if one really wants to spend one's time on the subject. Clearly a lot of people like the product, but I'm just as happy not to buy it in the same way that I'm aware of their split but am not interested in why 'Brad and Jen' have gone their separate ways. Might be interested in one of those 'nic off' buttons, though...

The Google results now number 292, with your article being number ONE. I guess if you keep this up, you might end up in the 'most influential' list yourself.

But seriously, I don't think this is the right forum for this sort of article...

Couldn't agree more. I don't know ANYBODY, who knows ANYBODY who can stand her. Who are these people that are claiming she is a legend? And why? For being vacuous? For selling some tedious story to the tabloid to promote her latest overrated film.

Anybody who saw "The Hours" will know that Julianne Moore was far more deserving of accolades that "our nic". All this "omigod, she's got a fake nose, quick give her an award" stuff makes me sick. Awards should be based on performance, not who's kept themselves in the headlines with meaningless promotional photoshoots.

As for "NSW Person of the Year", or whatever it is called.. Does she even live in Australia? Let alone spend much time in NSW? Last I heard, she lives in the states. I haven't seen her doing much for NSW lately. Have you?

Does anyone else feel the buttoned down persona of "our nic' is a mask to hide an ambitious aggresive grasper. It didn't take her long to latch onto tom cruise and use him to further her career, and as soon as she had made inroads into hollywood and milked him for all he was worth (promotion wise) she split. I suspect the "darling" she puts across hides a right harridan (look at the eyes "windows to the soul"). But we all know the gullible public feast on comic book characters, having to deal with a real person Re: emotional, confused, tired, angry, happy etc would mean having to extend them selves beyond the narrow consumer diktat so prevelant today.

Adrianna I couldn't agree more, geez you have even completely insulted a die hard fan (I suggest changing your address, you really can't get through to those people and I think there's talk of a lynching) But seriously folks how can any sane person defend Nicole Kidman, I know it's hard to pin point exactly why we don't like her but let me give you a hand. Cast your mind to last week, in a 3rd page big picture article of a Sydney tabloid, we see Nic and her two kids, now I haven't seen them pedalled out since Nic and Tom were together and a completely devoted couple (ha!). Now I don't usually read those articles but there was something alluring about Nicole talking about parenting, by the end of the article I was almost nauseous and sad for those kids, the comments she made sounded like someone who hadn't even changed a daiper, let alone trying to understand her children's emotions, it sounded like oh these kids are great they are such a novelty. I won't go on except to say she ain't good looking (bag o bones) she can act but she ain't fantastic (her only ever believable role was Deadcalm), she has the depth of a birdbath, and she comes off as a condescending twit without a clue.

Ahhhhh! Our Nic!! Yup...I agree with Adriana et al.....This surgically enhanced, nutritionally challenged, overpaid excuse for an artiste is definitely on my hate list...and I don't even know why! Perhaps it is the mindless fodder she provides for the so-called women's magazines (what an insult to women), or is it her sex life? Why is it so interesting to so many people? I personally think mine is a lot more interesting...even if it doesn't make worldwide headlines...or warrant me being nominated for a prestigious award for contributions to humanity and the arts. Oh dear...where is my valium?????

I AGREE WITH EVERYONE WHO HATES NICOLE KIDMAN...in fact the only thing worse than nicole kidman is baz luhman (sic) he and nicole kidman together single handedly have relegated a 20th century perfume icon to somekind of giveaway you receive after you sit through the matrix trilogy...the tragedy of kidman apart from having no personality to speak of is that she is held in such reverence in australia...I think her being made special n.s.w. person has something to do with her drinking coffee at bondi whenever she comes out here to dry out.

Movies stars are nothing but a bunch of very good looking very lucky people who were not only born with great enough self esteem to beleive they could be movie stars, but actually got to BE movie stars. So now they have all that and multi million dollar paychecks to go with it. None of them are really that terrific at acting. It really dosen't take that much skill to remember lines and cry on cue. (They are given cream to make their eyes water anyway) Even Jack Nicholson who always delights, pretty much plays the same character in every movie He does. It's quite rare that someone actually really blows me away with their acting. So why do we love these people so much? What have they done for US? On another wavelength, why does every female movie star have to at some stage bare her naked self? Why does She have to be gorgeous? Why do the men get away with being unattractive. Look at the channel ten news. The women are all stunning the men, balding and aged. Especially the financial guy paul ? Somebody? He is positively revolting. imagine a woman on that same level of attractiveness trying to get a job in tv. fat chance!!

I HAVE ASSOSIATES AND FRIENDS WHO ARE ACTORS/MUSICIANS/SMALL BUSINESS PEOPLE AND ARTISTS,ALL LIVING ON THE FRINGES, NONE ARE DOING VERY WELL AT PRESENT,IN FACT ALL ARE SUFFERING FAR WORSE THAN THEY EVER HAVE, YET THE MEDIA TELLS US CONSTANTLY THAT WE ARE IN A BOOM PERIOD...WHILE THOSE SUFFERING CLING TO THEIR BELIEFS AND IDEALS, THE MEDIA RAISES PEOPLE LIKE NICOLE KIDMAN and the like to unobtainable heights . JUST AS SHOPPING MALLS ARE DESTROYING SMALL BUSINESSES (along with that old chestnut the gst, an artist cannot receive any money from a work unless they have an abn no.) AUSTRALIA IS IN DANGER OF BECOMING A NON STATE...only really rewarding its creatives unless they are heavily featured in dumbed down tabloids...you only have to look at the social pages of sundays newspapers to know what a tragic state...blame John Howard and big business for this.. not nicole kidman she is only continuing a tradition that has rewarded people like jackie onnassis and others for centuries... But while a forum like this may exist in cyberspace...there is still no real voice of australia's cretive community in the regular media...

Ben, I disagree. I don't think it's got anything to do with the government of big business. (And no, I didn't vote for howard.)

The reason we have hear about "our nic" ALL THE TIME, is that people keep buying rubbish like Who Weekly. This has nothing to do with big business - they'll print what sells. It's the consumer that keeps buying this rubbish.

Take the example of Princess Diana - tens of thousands of people lining the streets saying "oh, isn't it terrible, she was hounded by those bad, bad press people", when the vast majority of them continually buy "News of the World", "Who Weekly", "Women's Weekly", and any other tabloid stuff. (by the way, I'm not a journalist, nor a politician, nor a supporter of big business, as such).

I'm not interested in the personal lives of celebrities in australia or anywhere else, whether or not they've "made it" - it's irrelevent and boring. The current practice of celebrities to "create" some drama in their lives - "I was unloved as a child", etc - to "up" their profile come awards time is a disgrace, but so is the public's demand for any little trivial detail.

Surely there's more important news out there than whether or not some has-been is dating some other has-been.. And yes, I'm aware of the irony of writing this on a forum about celebrities.. ;-)

Artists and people like Nicole Kidman fall into two very different categories - sole traders and corporations. Big name film film stars are rewarded financially disproportionatly to their ability based on the perception that punters are more interested in seeing a film with them in it than with some unknown. Their appeal on film is a combination of their natural looks and the skill of the director and cinematographer. Fair enough - good luck to them.

It becomes irritating when these people start to believe that they are superman (or woman). Surely incredibly lucky (and socially manipulative) stars like Nicole Kidman should look at returning some of their illogically high salaries back into the community to help other actors who are still out there working in theatre and the arts but who will never ever see a six figure salary. A $10,000 donation by Nicole to her alma mater, Australian Theatre for Young People, aint cutting it with me!

Ms Kidman's most convincing performance thus far has been her role as a scheming reporter in Gus Van Sant's 'To Die For', which no doubt reflects that "the buttoned down persona of "our nic' is a mask to hide an ambitious aggresive grasper' (thanks kramit). I also second the opinion by Beren that Julianne Moore absolutely acts The Hour(s) Nic off the screen in the stated film. Nicole Kidman definitely has an amazing publicist who trumpets her every inconsequential move; there was a period a year or so ago where she appeared every day for what seemed like months in the Sydney Morning Herald. I have a fantasy room in which certain celebrities are kept under lock and key (move over Meg Ryan and Jamie Oliver!) and Nicole has a seat reserved at all times.

Another reason to bemoan 'Our Nic' would have to be her performance back on Oprah and the like when she was Mrs Cruise, or whatever she called herself back then. Her affected yank accent was pure yuck-vomit-spew value.

Though now that she's grown up and realised that her 'brand' is more marketable with a neutral Australian accent, we hear ad nauseum (a bit like Latham's ladders of opportunity) that she's just a Sydney girl trying to make a go of things. A poor little Aussie lass than ponses about in $40 million perfume commercials and gets voted Australian of the Year (NSW only so far).

For my part it's not Nic the person that is worthy of our collective derision. Rather it is the bland Australian suck-hole media that dishes up the same encrusted muck and gravy about Aussie 'stars' day in day out, year in year out. Reruns of reruns of banal orthodoxies to which we're all supposed to stand up to attention to and let out gasps of 'ooohhh-ahhh'.

Australia you're still standing in it.

At last, an oasis of sanity. I think Kerry Armstrong put it correctly about two of Australia's treasured embarrassments when she commented on Nic and Kylie. I quote Ms Armstrong; “She can’t act and she can’t sing!” Truer words have never been spoken. How the hell these two managed to get a career in their chosen fields, and then not only retain them, but keep them flourishing, is one of the world’s great modern mysteries. Oh no. That’s right! They were manufactured. They are creations of modern day Frankensteins. Mad scientists who no longer wear white coats, have hunchedback assistants and delve into creationism, but who now manupulate mass entertainment in search of the mighty dollar. How appropriate then that “Nic Off” should have a starring role in The Stepford Wives remake disaster. Another travesty in a long line of cinematic travesties. What the hell was Stanley Kubrick thinking?? I think people like Kerry Armstrong and Adriana Maxwell should be applauded for not allowing themselves to be a part of the brainwashed masses, and for getting up and striking a blow for the real people. Nicole Kidman Australian of the Year – not in my universe!!! I will be pointing out Adriana's post to all the friends I know who are a part of the We Love Nicky Club. Oh, hold on! I don't know anyone who is in that club! If it wasn't for rags like New Idea, Woman's Monthly and Who Weekly we wouldn't have to hold back the bile when we walk into a newsagent and see Nic, Delta, Tom, Kylie, Gwyneth, Guy and all the other monstrosities that are being paid highly to destroy a once truely creative and enjoyable movie, television and music industry

Onya Adrianna - I have longed to read these opinions - and agree with Speckle too. BMX Bandits is always mentioned, but please everybody, her film after that, THE BIT PART, absolutely cast her to type. Look for it in the $2 rentals - a good film with Chris Hayward and an hysterical cameo by Ian McFadyen (one of the writers).

Nicole plays herself and it is not pretty. and also she was born in Hawaii, not Australia. I loved the divorce story 'our work kept us apart' - the woman is making 3 films a year, year after year. those poor little trophy children. The UN giving her their gong just shows what a useless bunch they are too.

Thanks Adriana. It was such a relief to find out there are other people out there who 'hate' Nicole Kidman, have done for years, but don't understand why.

I recently mentioned this hatred to my mother in England, and she replied, writing, 'Yes, what is it with Nicole Kidman? She seems to be completly looney'. And that is it, I think. She is scary. (Renee Zwellwegger is disturbingly similar, but she is not 'Ours' so who cares?) Nicole looks like she is going to break. Someone I know said she looks like a geisha. Someone who knows her and her family says she is desperately competing for Daddy's love.

As my Mum went on to write "It has just occurred to me that she may indeed be losing her mind, in which case it is really sad, and I hope she gets some help'

And when she wrote that I knew where my irrational hatred sprang from ( Can't speak for anyone else's). But I agree with whoever wrote in this forum, that when we react like this, it is to something in ourselves we fear.

In my case, all I know is I too was a competitive female in a female family, who adored my Daddy, and I went onto to be a big success in the world, admired and feted by many....and then I broke, and spent 5 years in and out of psych hospitals.

But, take heart, Nicole - if you are lucky enough to break, you just might find your soul. And then everyone really will love you.

I am going to instantly lose all credibility on this board by stating right out that I am a Nicole Kidman fan and that I also don't even live in Australia but only even read about this piece through my yahoo nicole kidman news alert. now that no one cares what i have to say, i'll get on. my main peeve with nicole-haters is that they don't even know nicole...it's not nicole who nominates herself for australian of the year or casts herself as the face of chanel no. 5 or signs the 20 million dollar paycheck. she doesn't send in stories and pictures to tabloids. the closest you can get to knowing her is seeing her on a talkshow where she is probably having a panic attack. but then i remembered that i don't know her either. if i may paraphrase... I love Nicole Kidman. It started a very long time ago and I love how much I now love her because so many people seem to hate her and I just don’t get it. it seems to nicole-haters that everyone loves her and it seems to nicole-lovers that everyone hates her and i guess that's just because we are all pessimists. it is a fine line between love and hate and by feeling either we are recognizing her celebrity. something about her has turned her into more than just an actress- and whether you not you find her talented is beside the point- and it's something that none of us seem able to explain except that it has worked up some kind of emotion in it. but you know what? that's what makes legends.

From Adrianna's original comment: "Why can I not jump on board the global admiration bandwagon and learn to love that giggle, the demure baby doe eyes and the millions of dollars she gives to charity (oh sorry - I made that bit up). Miaow!"

There is an obligation of the Blessed to help those not so lucky.

Dolly Parton runs a foundation which provides schoolbooks for every poor child in Tennessee, Lady Diana Spencer knew that just by turning up somewhere, a benefit would flow, so, where is the Kidman Home for Battered Women? This is why we resent her, we know she has more cash than Croesus, enough to do a Good Work. Even Mel Gibson flung some cash at NIDA. and with regard to a previous poster worrying about Nic's sanity - her dad is a psychiatrist so she will get help without queueing at public hospital.

To anyone who is about to say "well, you're all just jealous because you don't know her.."...

How about this for a thought. There are many fine Australian actors that get great roles in TV and film, but don't carry on half as much as "our nic" - when was the last time you saw Anthony LaPaglia complaining to Who Weekly about "his latest heartbreak", or some other rubbish?? The same goes for Rachel Griffiths, Geoffrey Rush, Russell Crow (if you ignore the bad poetry and that woeful "band" of his), Naomi Watts, Toni Collette, Cate Blanchett (ok, she is getting dangerously close to tabloid saturation), Rachel Blake - to name but a few.

And yes, it is "our nic"'s fault that she's the face of some overpriced perfume. She's clearly never heard of integrity, or saying no. She doesn't have to give some tedious story to the tabloids. How about laying low for about, oh, I don't know - 5 years.. Then again, given that's she's barely scraping by, she probably has to say yes to every opportunity that comes her way.

I have worked with Nicole Kidman. She is a total fake. It is a shock to see her for real as she is so painfully thin and unnaturally white skinned. When the cameras are on her she is transformed into a giggling, smiling, happy even over-the-top friendly person. Once the cameras are off she reverts to a scowling, insecure and angry person. I once observed a publicist on her knees talking to a scowling seated Nicole - when Nicole changed her gaze to the opposite side of the chair, this woman crawled over (on her knees) to the other side of the chair to continue the conversation. We wouldn't want poor Nicole to have to adjust her head now would we?

These are not the actions of a charming role model that we should admire.

Oh Corianda please tell me did you see her eat a meal? I always wonder what really slim people do when they get HUNGRY (like I [not slim] do).

Once again I urge everybody to find that 2nd movie of Nic's THE BIT PART.

Why does she keep signing on for films when she must have enough money to last forever? Why does she have a publicist? That full-time hairdresser guy! The thing I know I will resent her for the most is ruining my image of dear sweet witchy Samantha in Bewitched.

Nicole Kidmon’s movies have become totally stale. It’s a different movie, different costumes, different scenery, but the same Nicole. She should take a break for a while. Join a commune....get a tan....go for a swim in the sea....let her hair get dirty....stop looking at so many pictures of herself...anything.

I have been one of the few privvy to witnessing the unbounded depths of Nicole's charitable actions, a few years ago i was involved in a charity event ran by Nicole's father to raise money for children suffering suicidal depression.

A large amount of money was raised,famous entertainers performed at the event. People donated works of art.

Our heroine donated a Moulin Rouge script.

Oh Dean thanks for the laugh! am so glad I have not been a customer at any screenings of M Rouge, the Nose movie, or Eyes Shut etc. I saw TV ads for that child depression campaign that said 'we desperately need $4m' and I thought, gee Nicole could give all of that out of her divorce settlement. what a sacrifice to give that script she must have paid so much for. Keep the stories coming dear readers.

The Nicole phenomenon IS NOT out of control. We're out of control because we support her???Because we love her??? Oh, and another thing. Don't you EVER tell me who are the people that most important to me! DON'T YOU EVER TELL ME WHO'S IMPORTANT TO ME! GOT IT?! I sympathize all of you who hate Nicole. She's a wonderful actress, and an amazing human being. Myself and MILLIONS of others love Nicole. You're just a few people who are jealous of her beauty and fame. Your opinions don't make a difference. You're a bunch of idiots who are running your mouths. My advice to you is: SHUT UP!!!

Courtney,
I think the issue with Nicole, is that she has become like a “manufactured product” (or like a human fashion statement). The question is whether or not she is manufacturing herself, or whether she is being used or manufactured by other people. I think both, but eventually it would not be very healthy for her, or for her children.

What a RELIEF to read that others feel as I do... I have always hated Nicole Kidman, can't stand her and just do not get the whole 'Nicole Kidman' thing. I hate being told how much we're supposed to love 'our nic' (???) WHO loves her? I certainly don't and nobody I know loves her and WHY is she 'ours'???

I know people who have known and worked with Nicole and I can say that no-one, absolutely no-one, has ever spoken of her in glowing terms, rather, they describe her as rude, heartless, cold and calculating, Corinda's story (earlier) is very similar to the stories I've heard. I'm so sick of seeing her on the cover of every magazine, in every newspaper, on the news (??? why is she on the news???), on every 2nd DVD cover. Nicole works the media and publicity machine relentlessly. An example, her phone is being bugged... what does Nicole do? She notifies the 5.00 news of course... this is big news, her father appears on the news asking for privacy for poor 'nic' ???? You're asking for privacy by broadcasting it on the news? I cannot tell you when I have ever seen Cate Blanchett on the 5.00 news.

Oh and with regards to 'our Kylie', if you haven't seen this, please do take a look: http://www.heavy.com/index.php?videoPath=/content/contagious/flash_video/kylieMmm&partner=aff36

i think the reason, that the subject of nicole kidman fascinates me so much, is the fact that it's sociological, and many theories can be hung on the phenomenon.

For example; Australia as a simulcra of a 70's Carry On movie ...Mark Latham was Sid James. John Howard the headmaster who doesn't quite get it...Kim Beazley (guest starring) as Tony Hancock. Kylie Minogue of course is Barbra Windsor...Geoffery Rush becomes Frankie Howard,rather than Peter Sellers, Rupert Murdoch as the evil mayor / real estate agent / councilor / millionaire whatever,who wants to control the plot and eat all the scenery...Steve Erwin...
the hero who saves the nation ...Nicole as the person that opens Public Buildings by cutting ribbons, launches ships with bottles of champagne but gets caught in a compromising situation towards the end of the film with the mayor / real estate millionaire etc; and is exposed and ruined but he because
of his wealth, returns in the sequel,

Yes Peta, I viewed Kylie riding a mechanical bull...which somehow prompted this posting

Just to put things in perspective with the 167 results for "i hate nicole kidman", which is 184 now, the search for leonardo dicaprio 154, recameron diaz 183, tom hanks 254, julia roberts 681, tom cruise 859. searching for "i love X" instead, nicole returned 1760 results, the same as Julia Roberts. Tom returned less, only 1016. Leonardo returned 1150 and Cameron a paltry 345. This doesn't really prove anything other than i have too much time on my hands, but still i found it interesting.

Obviously 'our nic' is popular. But surely there is room for dissent.. And what's beauty got to do with it?? Should we praise everyone just because they are allegedly beautiful? I'm a man, so I'm hardly jealous. And frankly, a plastic-surgery enhanced nose doesn't do it for me anyway (just compare BMX Bandits to now if you don't believe me...). Then there's the thorny issue of 'popularity'. Millions of people like reality TV, but it doesn't necessarily follow that it's good for you, or worth watching. So just because lots of people like 'our nic', it doesn't mean we all should. Maybe it means that some of us are more discerning.

Nic's the idol of all those weak do nothing and look pretty women. She may have accomplished but she looks weak and sick. Her attempts to protray sophistocation in alot of her films is just her north shore elitist squinty eyed view down her pointy nose and that completely discusting natural laugh. Her jaw looks like it belongs to a five year old! Barf. I've got more freedom than Nic's little life. People please see beyond this little person the media loves to $$!

A great article, Adriana. I don't know anyone who buys those trashy women's mags with articles where about Our Nic. The question I'd like answered is, are the journos who write those articles, writing in a response to public interest or are they generating public interest by writing about her all the time. Would anyone care if we never see another picture of her at the supermarket checkout magazine racks? Ditto for Kylie who has done an enormous amount with a minimum of talent.

It is the PR Agents who cause it all. I was very pleased the magistrate threw out the Nic Parapazzi case - a person who pays a fulltime PR should not be wasting the courts time with that one.

No person is worth the millions of dollars that actors are paid to be essentially themselves.Jennifer Aniston & Brad gave $1 Million dollars to the Tsunami appeal but their combined annual income is/was way over $250 million. $1 million is pocket money to them. Also,here is the simple way to win/be nominated for an Oscar
(1) Agree to play a character that is either Psycotic/disabled/ugly/socially challenged. (2) Agree to be made up to look as plain and ugly as possible/put on weight/wear false appendages (3) Agree to play a character that looks nothing like your red carpet character. (4)Do very little else but appear and let the fawning members of the Academy vote for your stunning transformation and amazing "performance"
Don't believe me? Here are the nominees....
Nicole Kidman-wearing a fake nose.Charlize Theron-wearing bad makeup,fake teeth and gaining weight.Halle Berry-Appearing without makeup as the wretched trailer trash mother.Tom Hanks- playing the insultingly embarassing idiot that was Forrest Gump.Daniel Day Lewis- playing Christy Brown with Cerebral Palsy.Renee Zellweger-fattening up for Bridget Jone's Diary.Hilary Swank-Boys Don't cry ( One winner who actually was really really good)Nicholas Cage-playing hopeless drunk.Geoffrey Rush-playing David Helfgott(Noah Taylor carried the movie).Dustin Hoffman-playing an autistic in Rain Man.Angelina Jolie-sociopath in Girl Interrupted......
SEE EASY....
No talent needed.Just a script & a makeup artist.Just turn up! So,get your agent looking for them down & out transformation roles & start preparing your thank you speech......

For someone who is railed about parading or known for her love life, it is quite something not to have actually heard her name any of her lovers in public, yet, people yak on about who she sleeps with and this is meant to reflect on her? So, she hates Kidman, who cares. Kidman is entitled to date just like any other woman, her relationships can end just like any other person but I guess Adriana's life is so perfect that she can wake up one day and try to dismiss another person.

Kidman is not a role model? Kidman has worked with the UN for the better part of a decade, she is active in getting funds for Cancer research, she uses her connections to promote Australia, she works for children's charities, she may not be a care giver, doctor but it doesn't stop her charitable efforts from being given the credit they deserve and it is more than most people who put her down have done in their lives.
She is one of the personal sponsors for Tropfest, a primary shareholder for the Belvoir St Theatre, a patron of the AYTP, a primary supporter for young filmmakers, this is more than most people putting her down are able to do.
Kidman's work speaks for itself, especially in the last couple of years but if you are hung up on her failures then newsflash everybody fails sometimes. Considering the directors she works with, I don't believe celebrity will win her any roles, LVT, Glazer and now Wong Kar Wai aren't directors bowled over by celebrity, they look for a muse and they find it in her.
Adriana's personal attack on Kidman actually reflects on the kind of person Adriana is, it doesn't make you look good, darling.
That's all I will say. Tom Cruise was 4 years ago, get over it. Tom Burlinson was more than a decade ago, get over it. If she is sleeping with anybody else, that's her business, stop being so preoccupied about it, she is not rubbing in it your face. Shame Adriana.

Hi 'fearless' - you have NO PREVIOUS COMMENTS history so I assume you are NEW to onlineopinion. Did you hear from some Luvvie you know that there was a bit of Nic slagging going on? Don't go on the defensive, it is just a bit of fun because we all wish we had a hairdresser with us every day, were filthy rich, tall and slender, did 2 films a year without having to worry about picking up the kids after work, and had Armani boutiques begging us to sweat-up their frocks without paying for them, and we wish we could simply instruct our accountants to forward regular cheques to a list of charities. We hate her because she is living our dream. Now you, seem to know exactly which charities Nic supports. But you did not tell us how large is her largesse?.

Well,"fearless" you seem to have made a dramatic entrance to this curious forum...unfortunately most of the things you say seem to sound like a channel
7 press release, or perhaps you are a relative or press agent of the consort in question...most of the things you have said are arguable...I have seen no indication of any charity eminating from Nicole...as for the United Nations, do you mean that she is a representative say, like Shirley Temple or perhaps Bianca Jagger,or maybe its just like the Chanel No.5 thing. A fashionable face
to brand some areas of concern. Anyway, your comments are great they've woken a few of us from our confident sleep...actually the ricky martin fan "courtney loves nicole" on the other hand, i think really articulates perfectly the danger of people like nicole...you should check out her website...i will be surprised if you are not frightened.

I don't hate you for hating Nicole. But to say, you don't like someone because of what is seen in the tabloids or because they married a star, doesn't make sense. (By the way, I am nooo teenager, so you can not put it off as a teen thing from me) So, do I wish I could have access to the resources she has access to? Sure. But I feel that way about most people with that access. If you want to make a point about celebrities being put on a pedestal (which I am all for), then there are a whole crew of other much less talented "celebs" for that from around the world, especially my United States. I don't get the whole Paris Hilton thing.

Kidman is tall, beautiful, shy, adventurous (in her career and her life), smart, caring and many other things. I know from my own experience that being shy can come across as being cold or thinking more of yourself than you really do.

Ms. Kidman can act and has been working at her craft for a long time. People try to say that having been married to Tom Cruise did so much, but think about it. She spent most of that marriage being the wife and mom she wanted to be. Being married to a celebrity does almost more harm than good to a career. People thinking you have gotten where you did because of that, being one of them. I tend to suspect that people who marry and have a similar passion, tend to be similar in their desire to do well at it. The fact that much of her acclaim has come post Cruise, tells the story.

As far as the legend thing that was mentioned. Ms. Kidman was behind Lauren Bacall. She doesn't see herself as a legend either.

The truth is, none of us know Ms. Kidman. And in truth, she probably falls somewhere in between the good and the negative that is said. But I suspect that it is probably a whole lot closer to the good.

I may be new here but I don't find it fun to slag someone off or show my hatred for them in such a blatant manner because I believe I have the right to, being an old member of a board is not a reason or entitlement to find the putting of someone else down amusing and a call to arms. A lot of all these people that slag people off won't be able to take it in their real lives. To be so wrapped up in someone and then boot up your PC, type more than a 1000 words of personal attack just to show how much you hate them doesn't seem like fun to me, it is unhealthy and shows more of the kind of woman Adriana Maxwell is. Kidman with all her "flaws", stated blatantly by Adriana and her ilk, hasn't at one time or another put another person down, perhaps, this is why she is well liked.

I don't have to open the magazines to able to put my thoughts together, if I had posted something to insult or put down Kidman, it would have been more acceptable, I guess.
BTW, Kidman was already on her way to visit the Tsunami-hit region as a UN rep. but was told to hold off by the UN until things settle down and it is noone's business what she does to help the Tsunami region money-wise, is anyone asking how much you gave or what you did or do you think your charitable acts are more righteous than hers that you have the right to snigger at what she or other celebs have done?

If Adriana is seen as a smart woman then I am afraid I don't see the evidence here. Next time, ask yourself if the people who know you will be proud of your outbursts or ashamed, for some reason I believe it will be the latter.

You have no idea what she does for charity but you slag her off for it? smart.

Courtney is now advocating and encouraging violence towards Adriana - I can't believe that "our Nic" would support such action. If Courtney is typical, I can see now why Nicole has to take out AVO's to protect herself from these over-zealous fans. Courtney calm down. You have some serious anger management issues. Nicole is fine and she is laughing all the way to the bank as the more we all discuss her good and bad attributes it maintains her media profile and therefore her bankability.

While Fearless is not so fearless as to write under her own name, she is most comfortable in personally attacking Adriana for (what she sees as) personally attacking Nicole. Go figure.

Get a life people. You wouldn't be getting all hot and bothered if this satire wasn't ringing true.

AM, I am not personally attacking Adrianna, I don't know her personally so I have no idea what kind of person she is but from her article, what it shows of her is not nice. What I disagree with is her article and opinion and of course, her lack of basic civility, which however you cut it, is seriously/evidently lacking in her article. I haven't insinuated about the strengths of her relationships or dismissed them, or dismiss her status as a role model. I don't know her enough to vehemently state my hatred for her. Disagreeing with what she has written, calling her on her behaviour as written in her article are not personal attacks, if my saying what she wrote about Kidman reveals more about Adrianna than Kidman then if the shoe fits, she should be able to wear it.

I guess it isn't much fun when the tables are turned and support isn't coming from all corners. It seems that these days insolence is something to be congratulated and taken as fun, go figure.

Well now we have some hilarious comments.. Courtney says "she's got millions of dollars".. err.. so what? Does that mean we should all bow down and praise her..

As for the various comments about her (ahem) charity work... please stop. My sides are splitting. Folks, wake up! It's called promoting yourself around awards time.. "Our Nic" (and many others), still see fit to insist of multi-million dollar pay packets. Hmm... sounds hypocritical to me. The point I'm trying to make is that I can't see there's is really great personal sacrifice on the part of these people. I certainly haven't seen many celebs saying "i'll donate 90% of my $15million to charity x". Sure, when little people like us donate, we don't give 90% of our wage, but we don't have hoards of disposable income lying around. And blue collar works work just as hard for their measly income as over-paid hollywood actors..

Someone (I think fearless) also suggested "our nic" uses her connections to promote australia. Hmm.. she uses her connections to promote Nicole Kidman. Now that she's left Tom, why not move back to australia, insist on films being done here to increase tourism and jobs. If she's so great, and demand so much power in hollywood, she should be able to bring them out here. Having a full-time publicist keeping her on the cover of who weekly is hardly supporting australia.

The thing that frustrates me, and many others is the ridiculous amount of attention and press coverage that she gets (yes, her publicist ensures it's on-going - it's not just an accident). I certainly wouldn't rate her as a great actress. Stealing an oscar from Julianne Moore in the Hours was as close as she ever got. As stated already, there are plenty of good australian actors who don't carry on half as much as her.

I wonder whatever happened to the 1000 strong Nicole Kidman Army? Maybe they're on make-up and hair maneuvers under the leadership of Major Baz Luhrmann? Or maybe they are out on special tactical operations collecting all the back issues of New Ideas, Woman's Weeklys and Who magazines "our Nic" has appeared in? Or maybe, with any luck, they've all watched The Stepford Wives!

She's ba-a-a-ck. 'Breaking News' just announced by The Australian Online - (Not) Our Nic returns to promo The Interpreter. This is NOT 'news'. Their headline is probably the result of Wendy Day PR push.
Now we will see on the next covers of New Who Woman's Idea what her hairdresser can do to THAT HAIR next. IF ONLY she would spend some of her mega money establishing a boarding house for country kids who get into NIDA, or a home for bashed babies, or anything but endless skintight frocks, I would sing her praises. She certainly is churning out movie after movie. When! does she ever sees those children?.

I 13 and before i found out about her i was heading for a bad life.too
Yes, Ms.Kidman is pretty and gurl drool over her, whats wrong with that? Ur just jelous.U asked who does she infuence, well just go to www.teamnicole.com and ask all those people who they look up too when they r down, young and old she gives us, gives me hope for myself, i always wanted to be an actress and she made me relieze its possible.Maybe she looks so skinny beause people like u r stessing her ouyt by saying bad things about her, and shes trying to protect her family.She is not an ice queen, ask anyone who as met her. In one interview shes agrees that she is not a legend and doesnt want to be called one. She has done alot of charity work, examples:since 1995 she has woked with the UCLA, Womens Reproductive Cancer program she has served as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Childrens Fund (UNICEF) in her homeland of AustraliaIt was her concern for children that led her to UNICEF. During the crisis in Rwanda, she joined the international relief organization after seeing images of children ravaged by war. Since then she has raised public awarness about UNICEF's programs, doing public service announcements, and speaking out against land mines.just to name a few. the comment on her being with 2 men and that makes her a "role model" it dies, its like saying you dont need to be with a guy to feel good about urself.I know ur problem and it does take a doctor to figure it out, u r jelous, and r holding a grudge for some reason and taking it out on Ms.Kidman. My name is Beth and when i become an actress, maybe you will take a kids fit out on me, thats fine, but dont do it on Ms.Kidman, shes worked hard to get were is is and deserves to be reconized.i had, bad grades, bad adittude ,drugs, With everything she has been through, she makes me love life more.

put her name into Google Images search and get thousands of results, NONE of which show her in jeans in the dirt with starving babies like an Audrey Hepburn search will get you. Nicoles 'charity' work consists entirely of attending premieres of her OWN films.
The commentors in favour of her on this forum, all seem to be illiterate. Beth dear 'when you become an actress' you will need to read a script - generally they are written in correct english - even if you gain the role of a moron, the instructions will be in english. you have a lot of work to do. I do not enjoy being so frank with you, but to do you a favour, I suggest you aquire a more worthy role model for your life.

I realise it is now April at the time of this post and I am astounded at the 'angry' posts from the 'nic lovers'. Boy, these people sound as spiteful and vain as their beloved Nic looks with her thin lipped, botox ridden fake smile (I'm always amazed at how she gets roles given that she can barely move her facial muscles).

Anyway, I wanted to relay a little story from a friend of mine who has just returned from the US. When they were over there, they met up with some Americans who on finding out my friends were from Australia, started listing a few celebrities from here. They said "Russell Crowe is an Australian... and so is Steve Irwin the croc guy". My Australian friends then told them that Nicole Kidman was also Australian to which they replied "No no no, Nicole Kidman's NOT Australian, she's an American!".

I think that says it all. And by the way her PR is a slag... I know, I've met her... yuck. Nicole relies heavily on PR to build her profile to increase her bankability... good actresses just get busy and act.

Onya Peta - of course Mrs EXCruisiating would hardly matter in the scheme of the universe except that she keeps getting rewarded for nothing, and when she was divorcing for 800million dollars I got sick of hearing about it, and if she does ANY REAL charity work aside from turning up at her own premieres, then I wish her slaggy PR would let us all know - A$3m would endow a chair at any university in australia. Sacha Horler is a far better actress and Nic was born in Honolulu so maybe your septic aquaintances are right, I just wish the australian media would do some fact checking.

Isn't it about time our wonderful Nicole went to Indonesia to help out the Tsunami victims? There was a lot of publicity hype about her and her sister going there earlier and then it was mysteriously postphoned to a later time. How much later can it get? Are they waiting for the next tsunami?

Surely with "Eucalyptus" falling over our Nic has plenty of time to help UNICEF and the tsunami victims. What's that you say? - oh she's washing her hair - fair enough. She does need to concentrate on looking good for all those stalking camera men.

Sure, visit Indonesia - but don't make a tedious TV special about it. Celebrities who make nicely packaged TV specials are doing nothing more than promoting themselves. She should turnup and do something (I don't know - donate money, shovel debris) - but to stand there with her makeup on surrounded by orphaned children who neither know nor care who she is - well, it's as bad as turning up to premiers of your own films, or making that huge personal sacrifice of donating a script.. And that goes for all celebrities who want to get in on the act and show how much they care by making a special/publicity shoot..

My friend Gianna drew my attention to a review by Helen Garner of the Nicole Kidman flick Birth:

"But two things are wrong. One is Kidman herself. When such a blatantly manufactured force as the Nicole Phenomenon keeps coming at you every time you open your front door, it is a point of honour to put up resistance. I long for her to wriggle out through the bars of her stardom, to persuade me she's not made of cardboard. But I can't get past that thin, nasal little voice with its high-school intonations; those melodramatic brows; the awful girly thing that happens when she laughs."

I've obviously come late to this theme (stumbling in via an irrelevant google). However, I feel compelled to add my two cents. As a bald, grey-haired, old coot (definitely a GOM), who has worked and taught in live theatre for some 30 years, I have to confess to finding this all a little amusing.
For my money, I find Ms Kidman (how shall I put this without being on the receiving end of one of Courtney's diatribes? - ah, what the hell!) - borrrring. There, I've said it. Others have called her "ice maiden". I can't regard her as an "actress", (or as a rather pretentious past paramour of mine would put it "actrine" - I believe this was supposed to be french on her part, and having been a latin, german and japanese student, I wouldn't know), - but back to the plot.
Though young and fresh in "Dead Calm", even then, her displays of emotion just didn't ring true. I've never seen "BMX Bandits" and only "Batman Forever" and "Bangkok Hilton" of her later work (work??). I have however, seen plenty of promos, previews, shorts, etc of her other efforts, and she has never yet impressed me (not even as a woman). Regardless of her dialogue, her gestures, or any other aspect of her "performance", her eyes never show any expression. They don't sparkle, they don't glower, they don't love, they don't hate, they don't ... , well, they just don't anything, and in film where the closeup is so prevalent, this is even more important than on stage. The photo on poor deluded Courtney's webpage is a public appearance (Oscars? GoldenGlobe? don't know, don't care!) so she could be expected to be natural and show some vivacity, enjoyment, or excitement, but even there the eyes are lifeless and dull, making the mouth appear a grimace.
Anyway, I've said my piece, and while I can't go as far as saying I hate her, she certainly leaves me cold! So now (if anyone is still following this thread), it's over to the fan club to bite my head off.

Isn't that sad for her. I suppose the name is interchangeable and it is the media, magazines and the PR people who are behind this torturing of US. Those of us who do not have Full Time Personal trainers, chefs, hairdressers and cosmeticians to produce the gleaming magazine cover image. Those of us who do not have Chanel supplying expensive wardrobes. Oscar-win aside, she is a pedestrian actress. Sacha Horler is much better at the craft - I wonder what she thinks of Ms Skinny's bank account? Just when we might have mellowed toward Our Nic, she 'stepped out' with that vulpine creep Steve Bing - only a fellow creep could possibly enjoy his company after the miserable way he treated Liz Hurley. The thing about ALL the slim gorgeous RICH chicks ( Kylie Elle Nic etc) is that they are DRIVEN by some weird thing WE don't have, to ATTAIN That Thing - me me me, and sacrifice children sisters and partners to be it.

So the Ice Queen finally gets her gong for being a bonza Aussie. Let's not take into account she was born overseas, lives overseas, makes her living overseas, married a yank, joined a weird cult, has gone out with every bloke in LA who stupidly looked twice at her, and is now engaged to a drugged out whore mongering country music singer who probably doesn't even know what day it is. She's a real Aussie treasure (hero).

I dare say the Bali 9 will be on next years honours list for making people more aware of our country.

Absolutely, Snoggett. She is off to WA to make her zillionth movie when she already has more money than anybody could possibly need. How is she drawing attention to the UN aid efforts? (actually, the UN is useless too, is there a forum here for that?)
Nic, b Hawaii, has every right to be up there with the big Aussies - Mel b USA, Russell b NZ,etc; but what has she done to deserve any kind of award? There are selfless people devoted to helping others, eg Les Twentyman in Melbourne, who have no glamour in their own lives and who have never been helped by Kidman. I will concede that she did pop into a hospital once and visit a sick kiddie - but did she leave a cheque? an old frock for the suffering mum? This award is a crock.

Celebrity nanny Suzanne Hansen has called into question Nicole Kidman's mothering skills in her controversial new book. Hansen claims she never saw the Moulin Rouge actress around her adopted kids when she worked in Hollywood for celebrity couples. In tell-all book You'll Never Nanny In This Town Again, Hansen alleges Kidman played only a small part in raising her children Conor and Isabella. Hansen tells PageSix.com, "I never saw her (with her children)." Hansen also alleges Tom Cruise drew up strict confidentiality guidelines for the child minders he hired, so they would never be able to contradict claims he made about his own fathering skills. She adds, "Tom would make his nannies sign confidentiality agreements that were so strict, they couldn't even say for whom they were working. So basically, if (Cruise) went on camera and said how he didn't have any help raising his children, they couldn't say anything.

I never said i hated Nicole. She was a total angel. Rode in the same
ambulance I was in to the hospital. She and Tom were behind my cab in their car and saw the collision. If it wasn't for them I would not have had the medical attention I needed. It was a terrible crash.Dead of night .First showing of my last film.A real trauma to have this happen after a first screening. Understand?
A night on the tiles ? Don't talk about people you do not know. Including me . Your snickering tells me you are not capable of understanding why I wrote this letter.Go away !I will not be checking this site again so... .whatever. Lack of judgment on my part.

Whether she does charity work is irrelevant to me. How many Hollywood celebrity's headed out to Aceh to cuddle Tsunami victims? her no-show in Indonesia really doesn't make her any worse than the rest.
I really don't care about her hair,and what she contributes as a Australian citizen. Quite frankly, not many people do contribute much to the abused, poor, or indigenous, so I'm not going to judge her. It is interesting that people insist if someone is a celebrity, that means they have signed up to be the face of charity, I dont think its in a actors (use the term lightly for her) job description. She's just joined UN for women and I think its great to use her to raise awareness. Does she really care about a woman in Allepo Syria who has had her clitoris removed and repeatedly beaten by her father, then her husband? so long as its raising awareness for this cause, I'm glad the UN is wheeling her out to do it. If she gets something out of it, I dont care.
I have only ever pondered on with this hungry woman for any time when I think about her kids. They always seem to be with Tom, whilst she's talking about making pancakes for them. She seems to be away filming something, so how can you bare to be a mother away from your children for 3 months at a time several times a year? I couldn't be away from my kids for more than 3 nights. She said once she speaks to Isabella everyday on the phone...whoopie, I speak to my clients everyday on the phone, this doesn't make me their parent. The nanny even declared it in a book, and yet no Australian media have reported it that I've seen.
I just cant stand the 'mother of the year' delusions that come out her mouth. If she doesnt raise them equally, OK, but dont make out you do. Parenting is 365 days a year, not squeezed in between affairs and making a film.

ive just come to realize this hatred of kidman comes after an over- abundance of symphathy given to her after she was dumped by cruise. In the 10 years they were married, her career was no less than mediocre. after the divorce, overnight she was transformed into this generations greatest screen "legend". Mainly through critical praise i might add, her movies are unintersting and pretensious box office money losers. Those who would say its because shes come out from under Cruises shadow, then how would you explain the very simular and unimaginative movies shes made, pre divorce and post divorce: before, Practical magic, and after, Bewitched? The Peacemaker, and after, The Interpeter. Before, Birthday Girl, and later, Birth. What i resent is her playing for sympathy, even as late as her last movie, to try and sell her movies ,with tales of how she was so depressed by the divorce, that she wouldnt get out of her pajamas, for days on end! Well if your so dull and boring, keeping yourself associated with once being married to Tom Cruise may be the only way to she can stay newsworthy.

Nicole asked Tom for a Christmas present. She asked him for divorce papers to be gifted to her on Christmas Eve. No-one knows why she asked for a divorce. Not even Tom. That was her gift from him, as she asked . Tom did not dump Nicole. No-one got dumped.

Hello Maclen. You think this is real ? What debate? There is little to say about what you may have heard on your television .Read a news clipping from a major science or political paper or a book.It will relieve you of the burden of being stepped on by the boots you so adhere to.

Dear Snoggett; English is my fourth language and I am still not used to writing it as well as you. Difficult language to learn.
What is a "night on the tiles"? Please define a "tosser'. I do not know what that is.What is a "cat-trap"? I do not understand Provincial slang.
Noticed the habitual haters pummle me with indignation are so few , so loud and easily ryled while the intelligent people favor to be listening closely before making a comment on some one they do not know and people they have not met .Have also noticed Snoggert holds his outdated post-colonial British classist beliefs high , even though he has never been with the higher classes, less he is servicing them in a restuarant or buttling for them in a clothing store.

The is the Nicole and Tom I know. Asked them to visit my school the next day to speakers morning for the kids. They did.The kids, many in dire straits , living in housing and trying so hard to get through highschool, getting away from under were not ever impressed easily. They (Tom and Nic.)spent 2 weeks at my school,putting production of Days of Thunder in postponement.They went to every class, sitting next to students and became students themselves.Tom read aloud for us in English class and Nicole dove into and math. They told us their story.Tom took a few students flying. He taught them how to fly hands on as he co-piloted. 3 of these students are now in the Armed Forces flying F-14 jets and 2 are airplane mechanics. The last day with us, Tom and Nic rented 14 stretch limos and took the kids to the first private screening of Days of Thunder.They did send 8 kids to commercial shoots.Just needed a break. They are all now fully employed actors.
Tom and Nicole knew I was depressed after my sister had a momemnt with Capital records.I invited T and N. over and we, Tom, Nicole, my sis and I played tag and hide-and-seek in the large building I lived in. Laughter and love.My sis is now with a better label and I had the strength again to make another film.
Both Tom and Nicole did show for the premier of my film and uplifted me even more with their spirits.The next day they came to the world premier of my film (nameless) and followed me and my crew to the wrap party .They witnessed a porche slam into my cab and carry it into the corner of a building. They did ride with me in the ambulance and stayed all night while I was on critical.They live life. Their bottom line was never money. Fame was unexpected. They love and give , not take and stab.I just wanted to put the above information out to the world.They are born stars in what ever field they go into.

Hi Brownie. I thought he was too! I admitidley put him on the spot and asked him to read a page from Orson Wells' 1984 at random.It was not class material yet. I did not believe he was cured of DYSLEXYA ,especially by the Christian Science
(religion ?) but he read without a problem.I was beside myself. Some things really are stranger than fiction.I will never put his beliefs down again, though Scientology does give me the shivers.

Last time I looked, George Orwell wrote 1984 but when you have a school system that encourages cheesy, dyslexic movie stars to hang around schools and address English students in class, it is probably churlish to point out such minor details.

When such admittedly poor students like Tom and Nicole are welcomed into a school environment for such a long period of time you have to question the rationale as surely the only lesson learnt is that poor student discipline could be the passport to fame and riches.

Has it ever dawned on the Habitual Haters and nit pickers on this blog that they only look for the few unimportant flaws in people, no matter how small ? You must have a magnifying glass on your person at every given moment as if you were constantly looking for lice infestation.What have you done to make this world a better place? Have you taught 5 teenagers how to fly so they would have a career flying for the Armed Forces ? When is the last time you sent 8 teenagers to commercial shoots to get their careers started ? When have you taken time to go into an inner city school surrounded by guns, drugs and all things dangerous and creepy to sit in a small class of very brave teens and read with them , no matter how your reading skills may be ,even for medical reasons beyond your control before your birth?

I gave you a snap-shot of something beautiful and you can only find fault in silly things as an error in who wrote 1984. Like my mother says; The Devil Loves His Children So Very Much, He Gouges Out Their Eyes So They Do Not Have To See The Misery Of The World.

To Snoggett, Maclen and Brownie.

Nicole lives in Vancouver, British Columbia. She is American born, grew up in Australia but she can live anywhere she wants, anytime she wants to. Her children are well taken care of by their mother. The family is nothing for you to worry about. She is a World Actress, not confined to one country or city. Much like the world needs more light, Nicole has the Sunshine follow her wherever she goes.

Sounds like the three of you live in a basement in some god forsaken city no-one cares to live in unless they absolutely have too !

Need not worry about Nicole and her career and travels.Her many homes around the world. Her friends where ever she goes. Her great wealth and simple beauty. She does just fine on her own . Always has and always will. Even with admittedly "ugly" people like yourselves (you said so )bottom feeding is not something you can do without eventually getting very sick.Sewers are not to drink from. O.K?

Am off to work. You know ? W-O-R-K ?

Back on topic: Adriana wrote - 'Her latest elevation to be named NSW Australian of the Year beggars belief...I hate the way that the media seem to assume that everyone loves her ...
Listing a "thirty something" actor as a living national treasure is bizarre. Among her snowballing list of fawning accolades, Kidman was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world, .. to buy magazines (to find out whether she is sleeping with Keith Urban, Steve Bing or starving herself to death) count?
Getting dressed must take her forever, I mean for a curly haired redhead, how long must she spend transforming her hair?
After seeing the documentary about the making of her two and a half minute perfume advertisement ...If you key “I hate Nicole Kidman” into Google you get an astonishing 167 results ...
When film veteran Lauren Bacall, who sees Nicole as a relative beginner, had the temerity to correct a sycophant reporter who described Nicole as a “Legend”, she was pilloried around the world.
But why do I not recognise her hard work and effort to make it to the top. All those toiling years as an unknown - two as a teenager with Tom Burlinson and then ten years with Tom Cruise. This woman is such a role model!
Why can I not jump on board the global admiration bandwagon and learn to love that giggle, the demure baby doe eyes and the millions of dollars she gives to charity (oh sorry - I made that bit up). Miaow!
If I could just learn to love Nicole like "everybody" else does then the doctors say that I might just be able to get out of this padded cell and the straight jacket and fit back into society like a good girl".
NB: Tony - I worked for more decades than you have lived, and gave my country 3 taxpaying children. I am not ugly nor did I say so here.

Sorry BROWNIE.
Spoke with T and N as far back as 1989 and asked them what charities they give to. They told me they did not want to be affiliated with any orginizations.

They have been pushed into giving to charities openly as a media ploy to stop being harrassed. They have always given privately.
When I pay someones rent or buy fresh fruit and veg. for seniors I do not tell anyone.When orginizations want to shake me down for money I tell them I do not give to Charity through public/orginized means .Remember the famine 50's in Africa ?Why does the Humane Society not spay /nuetre animals before going back out into the system? It is a scam as far as i am concerned with so many people making a good living off the donated dollar.
There is always get a tax reciept and award for posturing. As a Christian I was raised never to tell anyone what I have given b-c it takes away from the whole spirit of Charity.

The movie stars and all-so-important people in the media talking constantly about what they give and how much are the ones i can't stand.Nicole looked so uncomfortable trying to sit in the chair at the U.N to be a spokes woman for three Charities. It hurts when you know you have given so much out, quietly and personally, being such a beautiful thing and heart warming to then be told by a mass of people you are cheap , do not care about the less fortunate and should give, soley because they have not seen you do your personal charitable work.Bill Gates was here last year and gave a school 6 computers. For that he was on the front cover of two daily papers and a fancy lunch with politicians and charities committee people.
He is where we should be concentrating our focus on. But he is not a pretty woman with a glamorous career, so why bother?

News Flash! Apparently Tom Cruise has split up with Katie - they are just pretending to stay together until after the birth of the child. Obviously all that charity work has taken its toll on the poor man - either than our Katie has woken up to the fact she was living with a control freak with only a tenuous grasp on reality.

Now I know that TIT (rather unfortunate anagram there Tony) will be mortified by this and feel obliged to pontificate further on the godly stature of Tom some more - please don't. You seem to have missed the point of this forum - an opportunity to rant about our irritating Nicole in a clever, sarcastic manner. You would be better to scroll through these comments until you locate CourtneyluvsNicole and bond with her instead.

Meanwhile the rest of us can wax lyrical about this new Tom development and how Nicole must be ecstatic! I guess I am strangely pleased as well - how shallow of me.

SKE; you found me out! TIT is actually the name of the planet I am from. Nicole,Tom ,God and I are from a planet you Earthlings have not discovered yet. We cloak it with a LOVE device.As I put on my green Alpha-ray goggles I can now see this is really a HATE site.

I met Nicole and Tom through the same pre-used U.F.O dealership I rent my flying saucer from. Rent-a-Space near Sky-Lab Elleven, across the Glixx Donut Hut .Just look up from the Hollywood sign but be careful not to incinerate yourself if you are on the landing path, not visible to the human eye.

O.K then. It's time to go back to TIT . Been interesting learning your ways of HATE. We will examine it closley and learn to use this most presciuos skill of yours to develope a New Order.

I just don't get it....I haven't been here, but you all still feel the need to attack me. Time has passed by since my comments defending Nicole were posted. I'm at the point where I say "WHO CARES". If you hate her, fine. If you like her, fine. Are you proving anything by coming here and attacking an innocent woman? Absolutely not. Adrianna can think however she wants to. Hate is a strong word, and if she "hates" her, well....like it's supposed to matter what she thinks. Her views don't make an impression on mine, so she can rant and rave all she wants. I've grown up since then, and you all need to do some growing up yourselves. Think about it this way: She's just an actress trying live her life day by day. Let her be guys, and move on. If you dislike her, OKAY OKAY. We got it. No biggie. Let's respect each other's opinions, and try to get along. That's the best way to handle this. I'm not here to personally attack anyone anymore, I'm here to make peace with you. Don't be so angry about something so minor. Let's ALL just move on.

Hi Courtney. They can not move on. They dispise themselves and are fear based. They cling to each other as they all drown in a very leaky boat. If you throw them a life line, they would only pull you in to drown with them.

yo geniuses, just to bring it to your attention, the topic title of this forum is "I hate Nicole Kidman". It is not "I like to grovel and ramble delusionally about Nicole Kidman". If it troubles you so much, maybe you need to go out and find THAT forum... but i doubt you will. You want to be here... you need to be here... the feeling of persecution just feeds your need for a reason to be alive, doesn't it? Yes, and some people are just so busy with "WORK" yet they can still find the time to post comments.... EVERY 5 MINUTES!.. (yeah i mean you, Mr T) I pity the fool. I check back after a few months only to find this? I'll be checking in

Adriana's essay says nothing for me to disagree with.
Nicole Kidman is not even slightly like-able.
The one thing which proves Adriana correct is that Not 'Our Nic' actually married a complete idiot like Tom Cruise.
Now poor little Conor and Isabella have Catholic Daddy and his Catholic child Mistress's Ex-Nuptual baby to play with.
Little Conor and Isabella have had Catholic Mommy and Lenny Kravitz, Mommy and Steve Bing and now Mommy and drug addled womaniser Keith Urban as well as her making 3 movies per year.
I wonder if all this was explained in the Adoption Applications?

Can't help thinking that Kid Urbman may announce a scene stealing wedding though.

Ha anyone other than myself been pushed onto the ground by Nicoles sister ? She came up behind me as I was leaving a pavillion Nic. and Tom were at and she ( Nicoles sister )in Onraio Place and pushed me so hard onto the pavement I could not get up , having a bad back.

She is a very bitter , hateful person with a dirty filthy mouth and a huge chip on her shoulders. I don't think I am the only person to have been assaulted by Nicoles sister, what ever her name may be, i do not know.She pushed my onto the pavement twice. Earlier I met her and she commented " Nicole hates you. I am her sister !" Why so evil ?

I have a famous sibling too and am always referred to as my siblings brother. Doesn't bother me. I guess Nicoles sister has a problem with being a famous siblings sister who no-one knows the name of and a great tendancy towards un-prevoked violence.

It has been a relief to read the honest comments made in this thread. The fact that Nicole Kidman has chosen to live in Texas when her 10 and 13 year old children live in and are schooled in LA is enough to illustrate her lack of interest in them. To not bother spending Christmas with them last year bolsters this pathetic Portrait of a Lady. Not.
She has stripped herself of emotional expression through overdosing on botox and plastic surgery too, which must be a huge handicap for an actor who needs to express emotion subtly.And let's face it, she has major handicaps in that area as it is.
Until recently I could not understand why the media always painted such a holy picture of the Ice Maiden. Readers aren't fooled. Who do the media think they are actually catering to? As someone else said in an earlier post, I know nobody who likes her.
She is a disgraceful example of motherhood and a greedy example of focussed narcissism. I now realise why the media refuses to tell the truth (because the media does KNOW the truth). It is because of her close friendships with the Murdoch and Packer families who own all the newspapers and magazines here in Australia. The journalists' hands are tied.As a result, I guess the truth about her marriage break-up with Tom will never be revealed. Tom said at the time, "Nic knows" but he didn't elaborate, to protect the name of the mother of his children. It will be interesting to see if, in time, the truth will out.

You asked me what's in my closet. Nothing interesting.Just a few old dusty memories of working on crews in the Australian Film Industry in the 1980s and early 1990s. The incident mentioned by another crew member in an earlier post about Nicole's rudeness and arrogance towards the film's publicity person is similar to experiences I have had in working on set with said Diva.The public mask of Nicole Kidman is the total opposite to the real person behind it. (Think The Portrait of Dorian Gray.)

Ok. Thing is I never worked with her or Tom. They are sweet people. My mom loves them and she is not easy to get along with, but they stole her heart. That's a big accomplishment. They are good to her. They were good to me throughout my knowing them. Some people in Toronto have said about them exactly what you have. They are arrogant and Icy on the set and dis-spect much of the crew. I have never been to any of their filmings .,so I wouldn't know but so many people truly Hate them , it is just difficult for me too see them like that. Am a bit beside myself when people are attacked on the entertainment news circuit who have not seen the inner light of the people they are crucifying.Sorry to hear film crews are treated so badly by a couple of actors. Maybe they get easily stressed when everyone wants something from them , except their company as just plain humans like everyone else.Am beginning to understand the articles in this blog. You do however sound like a bitter old Queen who knows she will never be more than a boom operator.

Unfortunately Morgan you have entered into correspondance with the TIT from Canada who has devalued this exchange of dark mutterings about Ms Kidman that the majority of us has so enjoyed. Adriana's article was reprinted in part in Melbourne's Age newspaper on the weekend and this forum of comments was even refered to as evidence of the groundswell of public disquiet as to Kidman's so-called "loved" status.

If Nicole is so loved why did none of her many famous co-stars turn up for the wedding? Not even Tom Cruise who she claims she will always love? The truth is that Nicole is quite simply not a nice person and anyone who has ever worked with her or for her will attest to this. Her most blantant act of self-promotion must have been immediately before the wedding when she showed up at Sydney Children's Hospital for a photo-op with sick kids - pleeese!

This thread 2912 has run longer than any other on this site.
What an achievement, and much of it due to our film director friend Tony In Toronto.
His close friendship with Mr & Mrs T Cruise began when they witnessed his injury in a vehicle collision after showing his 'last film' and Nic rode to the hospital in the ambulance with him.
He was teaching at a high school and The Cruises 'put Days Of Thunder on hold' to spend 2 weeks teaching his class to fly planes.
Tony knows 'Christian Science cured Tom's dyslexia' sufficiently for Tom to read to this high school class, possibly from 'Orson Welles novel 1984' which Tony alluded to in one of his posts.
Tony - your posts here have been most informative and amusing and I thank you for it, maybe you should write a book about them (in any one of your 'four languages').
I commend Keith Urban for allowing (unlike all other celeb weddings) the people of Sydney to photograph them going to their marriage, and I look forward to him being a positive influence on Nicole from now on.

So none of Nicoles co-stars showed up at her wedding. How sad is that?. Even ex-hubby who said he would attend , did not.
Nicole, you are in for a very long and lonely life. At 40, Hollywood does not take well to female actors. They just fall off the map. We reap what we sow, eh darling .I am very sad for you. I know more hollywood people who would show up for my sisters wedding, and she is not where you are in the industry, money wise, but every one loves her. Guess it's time for analysys. Too bad Nic.

The amount of "hate" that you exude from your forked and bitter tongue is astounding. You sit there and criticise Ms Kidman for actually working hard and making something of her life. You Ms Maxwell are in desparate need of some therapy, take a long hard look at yourself. Did you get rejected from acting school or is your bitterness purely because you never got to play the fairy in your primary school play. Grow up Ms Maxwell, wake up to yourelf before your self loathing turns cancerous, it's really you that you hate, not Ms Kidman or anyone else. Oh yeah, and by the way.....surley you must see how ugly and unattractive your unfounded attitudes would be to everyone around you.

Thanks for writing this.I'm happy to find people who hate her just as much as I do.I don't understand how she keeps getting movie roles almost everything she's in bombs big time at the box office.She has so much botox in her face she can't even change experssion and as someone else said her eyes are dead looking.Actually all of her looks dead,she looks like a corpse with her dead white skin,skeleton body,beige hair and souless eyes.We were calling her the corpse bride when she married Keith Urban.The only reason she even has a career is because she married Tom Cruise not because she can act.She couldn't act her way out of a wet paper bag.She only got her Oscar because they felt sorry for her because Tom dumped her.

Hi Criket.
Actually Tom did not "dump" her. She asked for a divorce to be given to her on Christmas Eve 2000 from Tom and he complied as a good husband does.That's how much he loved her. Only three people in this world knows why the divorce . Not even Tom knoes. He simply complied with her wishes. as a best friend and loving husband would do.

If it gives you any pleasure, Nicole is 40. Ypou know what happens to females at 40. They seem to dis-appear,
Wish you would look into your heart before spouting out your obvios ignorance about a divorce you know nothing about.
Tony - in - Toronto.

Maybe they divorced because of something she did.
As Tom said, when asked why the marriage broke up, "Nic knows." Maybe he is protecting his children from adverse publicity re their mother. Maybe it was something she did while filming Moulin Rouge.
Maybe it was the runner.

I couldn't agree more with you Cricket. Finally a post of reason. So I notice Kidmans back with another movie... its been what since her last one? A year and a half? Well at least a year and a half free from her usual pretentious, moody and self indulgant dribble. Do you think it'll be another dismal failure? About as sure as her personality is as bland as her complexion. But it'll make a perfect trilogy to sit along side Dogville and Birth, just a few of her long list of duds.
..and by the way, just to keep the facts on this thread straight, Kidman is 39 yrs. old. All you have to do is a little research on facts... you know Google it , its that simple.

Well you know Morgan, I've always believed there was something more behind the break up of Cruise and Kidman, than the usual they've grown apart, or disagreements over careers or Scientology, or whatever. Cruise was pretty adament and determined to divorce Kidman, that not even her claim of being pregnant and losing his baby would change his mind. I dont think its an accident theres never any pics or sightings of them together in public since they split, and it's pretty clear it pisses him off when hes asked too often about their marriage today. Also, morgan, what do you mean by that runner statement in your last post?

You people are so ignorant I just wonder if any of you have the common sense to be more than a boo boo god made when he /she created Tom and Nicole.
Jealous snipes.Get your heads out of the toilet and if you want to have any education at all, you would kinow that my friends
divorces are none of your bleeding business, stupid drips. You will never be one of us, and you can't play with us, so leave us......alone! Do not even mention our names. We are too good for you. Az-wipz.Jealous moo cows and flamers that cannot make it in the cinema. You're no good. Stay home and have children like all the
other losers.At least when my friends have children, they are all over the world magazines. Your ugly baby's pictures are probably from the mall.

I just wonder about this....TC wanted his own natural child more than anything else in the world so I wonder if they split because the child she was pregnant with was not his. And in fact, that could have been part of the very reason for the break-up. It all happened at the same time, although the public were not aware of the pregnancy when the break-up was announced.
Rumours that simply won't go away are that she had a fling on the set of Moulin Rouge.The cast and crew all signed confidentiality statements so there would be no official leak of this. But crew and cast have friends they talk to in the privacy of their own homes. Rumours aren't always 'rumours'.And everyne to a man/woman, says it was the runner.

Yeah, that would be a very strong reason for the split, for sure...but i never actually bought her claim of being pregnant, it just seemed the timing was a little too convienent, also that she lost the baby. Seemed like a ploy to get Cruise to reconsider the break, or just part of her pathological need for sympathy. (I also wonder when the morons who write for the tabloid rags are gonna get it through their thick heads that she is not capable of having a kid, and stop writing stories wondering if shes pregnant?)
and also wondering if the worshippers noticed Kidmans brand new "trout pout" she just unveiled yesterday at the Rome film festival...worst collagen lip injections ive seen. Guess she is terrified of turning 40....

Her fish lips do look badly done.She gets scarier looking by the day.Maybe Keith Urban could put a bag over her head to nake her look better. With all her money you think she could hire a good plastic surgeon.Every procedure she has done makes her look a little older,instead of younger.

When my sisters and I stay at her summer cottage and she is away, I give a substantial amount of money to
her favorite Chatiry as my family does wherever we go.We do so as not to insult the host/hostess by paying for our groceries, staff, racing boats etc. We take the equivalent of what we believe a five star hotel would be, and give the money to Charity.

The only question is how long will Urban stand to be married to her, huh? Ah, these Jolie wannabes... first madonna flies to Africa to buy herself an african baby, now kidman wants to became an international ambassador for the downtrodden and needy of the world. So what happened to breast cancer awareness she was so into just a few years ago? I guess it didnt help her box office appeal enough, so shes trying to upgrade. Well I'm willing to bet being johnny come latelys... or in this case, joannie come latelys, wont help cd sales or box office numbers very much, it will only make them look desperate in their attempt to stay relevent.

I agree Maclen. I think her public personal 'theatrical' performances such as the 3o -second visit to the children's hospital before her wedding day running in then running out again(after ringing the press to let her know she was going to be doing it),,...are as obvious as the botox on her face.Not genuine. Transparent do-gooding attention-seeking that does not fool people. The fact that she lives nowhere near her teenage kids, doesn't take them on tour with her or have then stay with her for holidays.... and even had them sitting in the row behind her on the night she won an oscar for her nose job.... reveals the truth of her mother- love.The night she won the oscar for her nose, you'd truly expect her two kids to be seated on either side of her. But no, they were
relegated to the row behind. She is now on an extensive tour with her country and western singer. At least it must be a surprise for her, after every long absence from her kids, to see how much they have grown and developed.People maligne Tom Cruise but at least he is providing a warm, caring home for the two teeneagers, that is secure and always there.

Well morgan, you're probably right about her as a mother, as apposed to Cruise as a father... (you can find video of him every week at his kids soccer and football games.) So I guess we can rule out the possiblity of her adopting a poor 3rd world child, as it would take time away from the 20 movies she does every year, or from the fundraising dinners she hosts for the fatcats and bigwigs...

Well, looks like Keith Urban is jack of being married to the celluloid giraffe already, after only 2 months. He's just been admitted into a live-in rehab.
Bang goes his big tour.Bang goes their marital bliss. Maybe she'll use her spare time to pay a visit to her teenage kids.And pigs might fly.

Yeah just picked that up on the news ticker... oh what a shame, isnt it morgan? Well shame on Urban for not knowing that being married to kidman was going to be nothing but rainbows and lolipops...NOT! but he made it to 4 months actually... (according to google news by the way) So the next question is, to use a country expession, how long will kidman "stand by her man?" Thats only assuming if urban can still stand himself... So honestly now, who couldn't see this coming?... oh right...

My prediction is that she will stand by her man for a while but after he does it a few more times, she will desert him in the same way she deserted her kids. Novelty over.
For the moment however, there are some wonderful opportunities for art to imitate life. Instead of attaching a nose for her next role, she could don a habit (not one of Keith's of course) and re-hash that film about the nun who cared for drug addicts on the streets of New York. Or swap roles completely and see if she can re-hash the Billie Holliday role in that brilliant film 'Lady Sings The Blues', about alcohol addiction. (Mind you, she did drink an enormous amount of absinthe off set whilst filming 'Moulin Rouge' so she's actually done a bit of 'hands-on' in that area herself.)
Anyway, I feel sorry for Keith Urban. Needing to numb the pain only 4 months after the wedding means life behind closed doors must have been pretty tough.

yeah i agree totally that she will try and use this as "Artistic Inspiration" since she considers herself such an "ARTISTE", and with this new "tragedy that has befallen her", milk it for all its worth. Of course she wont speak of it directly, but in general " i will try to prevail above all the hardship that has befallen me" nonsense... Well you know people dont usually enter rehab until they'v e hit rock bottom or something occurs.. and i can just imagine the scene... kidman, having been away for a couple of days at the rome fesitval and playing make believe ambassador to the world, returns to their home in Nashville, and entering the front door, knocks over the empty bottles of Jack Daniels littering the floor, goes upstairs to the bedroom only to find Urban past out on the bed, still wearing the same clothes he had on when she left, and then getting a whiff of vomit coming from the bathroom... something had to be done...

I thought it would take her 6 months to drive him back to drinking,but it only took her 4 months.Guess she's even more of a bitch than I thought. I hope Keith gets better and dumps her as soon as possible.She is going to ruin his career and his life if he doesn't get rid of her soon.Having to look at that botox spill first thing in the morning would drive anyone to drink even if they didn't already have a weakness for it.She looked like a drag queen at the Happy Feet opening in London.As for standing by her man she's not even standing in the same country as him let alone by him.She'll milk this for all the sympathy she can then drop him like a hot potato unless he wakes up and kicks her to the curb first.

Yo Cricket, your a godsend.... well my prediction was correct, her new film is a miserable failure. It's a perfect match to Dogville and Birth, where it seems she plays the exact same character, a bland wide eyed, uninteresting, empty headed wax figure. and of course the idiotic "I want to have a baby" nonsense is back...well i guess she'll be off to Africa to pick herself up one. but I doubt that, Urban's going to be problem enough for her to handle. She picked a new husband as well as she picks movie roles

With deep regret I have to inform you Tonyintoronto, that Nicole Kidman is currently unable to laugh all the way to the bank....oops, I mean.....'all the way around the world' as you state, because of an annoying build-up of botox in her facial cells. When she attempts to initiate a smile in Kansas, it doesn't even begin to crack the celluloid (that is, her face)until she reaches New York, finally presenting itself fully in frozen relief when she steps off the plane in Tallahassie. Her children never get to see the full smile these days because she is never anywhere near them long enough.

So what if she has issues. You don't ? I bet you are not able to stand being alone with your self for a minute and have to run out to a clique in a Pub somewhere , hanging onto fake friends, just because they're there. At least she can afford botox .
Would not want to look inside your closet,
or underneath your bed-room floor boards. HONK HONK!

What do you care any ways, about someone elses life. Someone whom you do not know.Obviously malice and spite are what fill your void .There's a rubber hose for situations like that.

It all reminds me of the days of Olivia Newton John and Carrol Whatsername. Why do Aussies take such awful digs at their own performers?
Are you similar to the Danish, who do not like bling-bling showy-show people too ?
I think it may be cultural. Getting away from the Fops and Formalities of Classist English "society" types, I tottally understand. Canadians view their actors and recording artists , film makers etc. as not even on the same level as American artists, until they sign American, go huge and then we lose them to the States. Then we admire them and want to call them our own, but we are never there for them when they are "just Canadian actors", because we do not throw tinsel around easily. and I am assuming that any Aussie artist who does well over seas then becomes Americanized and they get tinsel glued to them so very much, they seem to lose their inner selves. Am I right ? If Nicole was laid back in Australia and just another Australian girl, she would not have so many Aussies throwing barf at her, right ? I don't like Bling-bling people iether , but I can see underneath all that. When I 1st. met Nicole she was a nice, simple country girl. Now I do not recognize her. She has been eaten up by the Tacky Hollywood Machine. I warned her about that, as it happened to my sister too. I wish she would have listened a little more closely. Still, I love Nicole. She will come back to herself one day. Until then we stand by and suffer , knowing we have lost yet another freckled faced country style girl to the Hollywood Monster.

It is clearly obvious that you have never met Nicole Kidman, T.I.T. Never, EVER has she been a 'country girl' type. You have imagined that because she once had red hair and freckles. Even as a child actor, she was ruthless and trod all over her young co-actors to claw her way to the top.
We in Australia, DO applaud, support and love our successful actresses. We have plenty of them. Cate Blanchett, Judy Davis, Toni Colette, Naomi Watts, Gia Carides, Deborah Lee Furness and back home on the small screen, there are plenty more. They are all far superior actors to the celluloid giraffe, who only got her break in the first place by becoming Mrs. Cruise.Our other actors have done it the hard way and that is why we applaud them, as well as the fact that they have REAL talent.
The girl 'Caroll' that you mentioned along with Olivia, is not 'Carol' at all. You need to bone up on your facts, mate. Her name is Pat.....Pat Carroll. And every Australian adores Olivia Newton John. Like I said, get your facts straight and stop trying to pretend you have met the Ice Queen.

Thanks for the reviews Maclen,I didn't waste money on seeing it but I was wondering what other people thought of it.

Theres no doubt about that Cricket. The point of my posting the reviews is to show that the few years of sympathy she received after Cruise dumped her is over. No more award noms for every role she does, shes right back to her regular mediocre career. The fact is she pocesses no warmth, can't emote compassion, has no likability on screen. She simply has a few acting tricks she relies on... you know, opens her eyes wider to show surprise, chain smokes cigarrettes like a train's smoke stack to show anxiety and etc... now what I'm trying to figure out is, do the movies she decides to do suck from the very beginning, or do her demands to fit them to her preference or limited acting range turn them into junk?

Maclen and Cricket, to weigh into this debate, I truly believe that NK, and the people who are reponsible for employing her, all appear to be suffering from some type of delusion. An hallucinatory idea that she can act. A fantasy that she can 'get into the skin' of the characters she is meant to portray. She is totally unable to do that, even when adopting false noses, black wigs and feverish smoking habits. She is unable to 'feel' compassion or love for anyone apart from herself(not even for her two kids), so how can anyone expect her to be able to feel those emotions, and even stronger ones, for a character in a film? Nicole Kidman is an hallucination. She is like a mirage in a desert. Something people flock to but find on arrival, is actually non-existent. She's such a faker that she's even fooled herself. When asked in an interview last night what Daniel Craig was like, she simpered in a silly way and said "He's a good egg." Gaining little response from reporters, she repeated it. Then tried to explain in detail, what a 'good egg' means.Then she laughed and laughed at herself, leaving a bewildered bevy of journalists with mouths agape. Trying be funny or witty or clever just doesn't work with Nicole because she isn't. And she can't even 'act' it. Pitiful really.

It is called Signature Acting. A stiff upper lip is what you are describing and is actually one of her most famous signatures .
In person, she is the opposite of what she portrays on film.If you had met her on a one to one basis, I am sure your experience with her would have left you with a great deal warmth for Nicole, as I and others have known her.
You may have felt hurt or felt she passed you by as an ice queen as you descibe her, but she was in character.Many people in crews have. An artist can not be turned off and on like a light switch because crew members want to be friends with an actor. Remember she too was working when you were on set doing whatever you do.
Many actors cannot take time to be side tracked by crew wanting to warm up to them.Cheryl Ladd gave my extras a 10 minute meet and great whirl wind while we were on break. I have been on many sets and my intuition at first was to leave them alone and not even look at them as they passed by.
All that is left for the wrap-party. Even then actors will only put in a 10-20 minute showing and have to leave. Much like Tony Curtis.It is not personal.It's a job.get over it. It has nothing to do with you.

You make some very good points there, Morgan. It is one of the biggest handicaps she has as a public person. You are so right, she is so painfully awkward, and inarticulate. Your description of her interview here reminds me of when she was given her oscar. Do you remember earlier that night, Adrian Brody won for best actor, presented to him by Halle Berry, and when he ran on stage, he grabbed Berry and kissed her on the lips and wouldn't let her go? Very funny, and original... well later when kidman won she walked up on stage and she was met by Denzel Washington, Kidman tried to kiss him on the lips, just like Brody had, but Denzel stepped away and just led her to the podium, where she then stood a few feet away from the podium, with her back to the audience, holding the oscar to her cheek? Trying to "act " in a real situation. It really was so blatantly phoney.

The one thing I remember more clearly than anything else on that Oscar night was that her children were seated in the row BEHIND her. What message does that convey? ANYbody else would sit next to their kids.
T.I.T. it's best you stop making things up about your comic- cuts experience on film sets and mixing with 'stars'. Your idea of what it's like on a film set is so far from the truth you sound ridiculous.

She has no character or personality of her own.If she doesn't have a script in front of her she sounds like a total idiot when she speaks.And her horrible fake breathy voice makes me just want to smack her anytime I hear it.She got all flustered and disoriented at the premire of Happy Feet when a reporter asked her how Keith was doing.She probably had no idea how he was since he wasn't around to provide photo-ops for her she's forgotten all about him.If they really wanted to throw her they should have asked her how her kids were.Or better yet asked her when their birthdays are I bet she has no idea.She would have had to call Tom and ask him.

RESPONSE TO MORGAN.
I am not in the film industry. My experience with what I call "Brand Name " people is strictly from my parents involvement in film and fashion. I just happen to be there.It is waht I grew up with and what I know. It does not impress me,( but highly irritates you ).
The company my parents keep and have done so since the early 1950's through today and spill into my home are just friends. I am a teacher and part-time short documentary film maker as well as a designer with my own line, much of which my "Star " people purchase from me and that keeps me in a failry nice life.

Morgan, Cricket, another trait that really annoys me about her is she also has a need to make patently false statements...obviously she has to make things up in an attempt to appear more interesting than she is. First, take the whole baby thing... it all started a while ago when she said in an interview she wanted to give birth to a child of her own. Its pretty obvious she is unable to, so why say it? Also in a usual movie p.r. revelation, she stated that she would give up her movie career to be happily married again, and she also stated she didnt believe a woman can have a successful marriage and a successful career. Or she says she believes she cannnot, but she has a couple of movies already set up to film. So what does that tell you about what she really feels about Urban? Well who knows...but one thing it says is, it wont turn out pretty.

Yes, Maclen. I wonder when the first journo will write a true in-depth story about her. Maybe it would only need one to start and the rest will copy and attempt to outdo the one before, and then there will be a more balanced picture of the truth. But SURELY others can see through the filmy veneer and hyprocisy, especially to do with her lack of mothering. I know some publicists and journos who know the truth and in fact despise her, but they continue to keep the farce alive for whatever reason. It doesn't make sense.
Incidentally, an Australian actress Kerry Armstrong, went to the US a few years ago and looked up NK who had been a friend, but NK did what she's done to all her old friends from 'home' and gave her the cold shoulder. On returning, Kerry Armstrong commented on what had happened to a newspaper reporter. Told the truth...a truth that held for several other of NK's oldest and dearest friends who were also discarded once she turned into the celluloid queen...and although her words were printed, there was a rash of response accusing Kerry Armstrong of sour grapes. The 'sour grapes' syndrome couldn't be further from the truth in this case, as Armstrong is a strong, confident character who doesn't 'need' NK. She's a far superior actress and perfectly happy in her own skin. She'd just been friendly, as they'd always been.

Morgan, I'm sure your not surprised at the blabbering idiocy and the emotional imbalance of the Kidman sychophants. Your better off ignoring them, i know i do...
well so where were we.. oh yeah, well her latest movie has come out, and is flopping around like a fish out of water, gasping for breath, much like kidmans career. And according to Rottentomatoes.com her next movie, called The Visiting, is due out in January. Well, coming out in January? The month studios release movies to send them out to there early graves. Its SciFi, not a summer movie? Well you all rememeber how her last summer movies did. The visiting... sounds like a second rate TV movie, based on a third rate steven king novel he cranked out in a week and a half. I wonder how it will do?

You're a sick person, McLn. Sick and evil to the core.AND you KNOW IT ! I know you do. I just know b-c you are too easy to figure out.

Did I mention our Nicole Kidman Fan Club has donated $100,000 USD to erect a full scale Bronze Statue of Nicole at Darling Point, overlooking the harbour ?

We have. On private land too, so you can all pay to see and kiss her feet , or if you are on welfare, which I assume you may be, you may look at it all you want free of charge from the harbour as it will be well lit for miles to be seen for hundreds of years. Your childrens children will admire it as it will quickly become part of Australia's beautiful and diverse Cultural History.I love a country that gave the finger to oppression so all of its' citizens may rise to their greatest heights without being imprisonned or ex-communicated from the land because they rose through the ranks of Imperialist , Classist societies,supposedly posing a threat to its weakest bottom feeding idle gossips and Fops.

I hear Nicole has bought a house in London now.I wonder if that has anything to do with the fact that Tom Cruise bought a house in London last week.Still trying to outdo Tom I see.She might have beat him to the altar but his wedding got 10 times the attention hers did.All she got was a corner of the covers on People and Us but Tom and Katie got special editions devoted just to them.No matter how hard she tries she just can't steal the attention away from him.Maybe Nicole should buy the magazines so she can look at the pictures and remind herself what her 2 kids look like,since Tom and Katie included them in the wedding and reception.

funny.. that comment, morgan, pretty much says it the way it is, doesn't it? I wouldn't be surprised if Kidman ended up based in Australia, reduced to local tv movies or an Australian soap opera, seeing she'll have no future success in La La land, what with her movies being ignored even before there released. Also Cricket, I see what you mean, i was annoyed when I caught a little of the Cruise/Holmes wedding coverage, and the mention of kidman "reportedly" sending them a gift and well wishes, which, of course, was leaked to People mag. by a kidman "insider". Whatever it takes to keep her name attached to Cruise... so pathetic...

You know Morgan, sociopathic behavior is a sign of deep emotional problems, and they really need to see a doctor about it, dont you think?
For any rational mind could see the simple facts that kidman was lifted from mediocrity by Cruise. Just for one instance, take the whole Oscar awards. In the 10 yrs Cruise and kidman were married, Cruise received 2 oscar noms, kidman got none... and in the 5 years after Cruise dumped her, she's already received 2, plus an actual win, while Cruise has not received another nom...Kidman is a mediocre person, let alone a "serious actress".

I think one of the reasons she still gets roles even though her movies are almost straight to video these days,is because she will take her clothes off at the drop of a hat.Some actresses won't do nude scenes,but Kidman is more than happy to be naked no matter what the story line is.

As I said once before – as a woman NK leaves me cold (and I've discovered that I'm not the only red-blooded Aussie male who responds, or perhaps I should say, fails to respond to her in this respect). Her going naked isn't going to change that either. She must be getting desperate.
Helen Morse, Rebecca Gilling, Wendy Hughes, and diminutive Noni Hazlehurst, are all (still) beautiful and gorgeous Australian actresses, as are many of the younger set such as Rachel Griffiths, Toni Collette, Miranda Otto, and the versatile Claudia Karvan. They are also actresses – not blow-up dolls! You see, they all HAVE personality, rather than BEING A personality.
Oops, hush mah mouth, am I being “shallow, selfish and quite petty” a “snippy fop and wanna -be dandy” etc. etc.?

T.I.T. this is for your perusal. I am attempting to communicate in a manner that you may understand, since plain English doesn't seem to do it for you. It has a title.....THE CURSE OF DA MUMMY MEETS DA KIDMAN CODE. Herein lies the text.....
Some religious academics refute the existence of the devil but I can assure you, that according to da KIDMAN code, OLE NIC is still alive and well.And creating hell for those closest to her... her children and her husband.
This mummy has buried herself well away from her children,never seeing them, nor knowing what they look like any more. The curse of this mummy also affects her husband, having caused him to imbibe in alcohol and drugs to numb the reality of being sucked into Da Kidman Code only weeks following their nuptials. Even their canary died.
T.I.T....accept these facts before the curse of this neglective mummy reaches Toronto.

Excellent tale, Morgan, but i'm sure its still to coherent and lucid for the simple mind... now back to that other horror, its no secret that going back about 6 yrs, the kidman movies that have grossed the least at the box office, are the ones in which she insists on baring her boney behind. They grossed,ridiculously, only between 1 to 5 million dollars each. I guess the sight of her pale, sickenly cadaverous like, skeletal remains of a body is too repulsive to movie goers, not many would pay the money to watch them.

His career was going great until he hooked up with her.If anybody's career is over it's Botoxia's.All she is known for anymore is her plastic surgery,botox injections,ignoring her children,and ruining a wonderful talented man's life and career.Her movies are flops,she can't get pregnant and she's looking older by the minute.Her quest to try to look young is turning her into a giant joke,almost as big as her forehead.If Keith dumps her soon enough he can still recover his career.He has more talent in his little finger than Botoxia has in her entire freakishly tall skelatal corpse like body.If Kidman is the example of class then give me trash anytime.

Botoxia? thats comical genius... your'e right about her forehead, pilots could use it to make emergency landings on. It must be caused by all the plastic surgury shes had done, that would explain why her eyebrows point so freakishly upwards now. Well i see they've rolled out the Chanel commercial here in the states again, the one she made about a few years ago. Its as pretensious as any of her other movies. Its funny I seem to remember it playing at the end of last year as well. This being the beginning of the awards season, I'd gather she hopes they mistake it for an actual movie performance, and nominate her for an award, any award,seeing that her latest movie tanked.

Hey, guess what T.I.T. Botaxia Le Giraffe is not 'class'. And guess what, KU is not 'trash'. She comes from a middle class family here in Sydney and he comes from a middle class family in Queensland. Neither trash nor class describes either of their families. He remained a normal human being while she morphed into a skeletal praying mantis stick insect that preys on the vulnerability of anybody who is sensitive, compassionate or is a child..... or any person (such as Tom Cruise) who can give her a leg-up the ladder of self-obsessed ambition. Before there was Tom Cruise, there was a highly successful actor here called Marcus Graham. And before him, another big star in Australia called Tom Burlinson. (all rungs up the ladder.)

Are you telling me Nicole Kidman used men to get ahead in the Film Industry ? (They used her ). That's never been done before.

Too much plastic surgery ? It's her body. Stop staring at her on magazine covers and then complain.

Her Chanel commercial is out again and you watch it but don't like it?That's what commercials do. They re-peat themselves.If you don't like it, STOP STARING AT IT!

You are all obsessed with Nicole. She seems to be the focus of your lives. If you don't like her, STOP STARING AT HER! You can't, can you ?

What is wrong with you people ? She is not any less or more human than you. Just wealthier, greatly popular, wordly, feminine, and I could go on but that would just be more grist for the mill.

I love Nicole. As for Urban, - Total Loser. Is she supposed to be by his bed side while he undergoes detox? Barfing , stinking , sweating out all the poison he injested ?She can not make anyone do anything. He chose to be that way when he was 12. You can not blame Nicole for his failure. Heck No. He has had his 3-5 year Music Star career. That's how long they last if they are avarage,pill-popping drunkards. She keeps him in the limelight.He is fortunate to not have the divorce papers delivered to him along time ago. Nasty drunken pig. Self centered egoist. EHW-Yuk !

Cricket, he'll rise above it. Everyone in the cast will outshine the celluloid giraffe. She is totally miscast in the role, on top of having the handicap of no talent. It will end up being a great vehicle to showcase everyone else's talent, with the flip side of that coin emphasising her lack of it.
On a personal level, she is now not only making sure she's constantly placing large distances between herself and her kids, she's also placing them between herself and her new husband, who will need her support in his recovery.
With NK it's all about 'me, me, me, me, me'. It's never been any different......that and the ABBA song "Money Money Money'.

Well Morgan and Cricket, Urban it seems just had the bad luck of being at the right place at the wrong time. He met her just as Cruise and Holmes got engaged and then had a kid, so in desperation she clamped onto the Urban in a sad attempt to keep up. And i also can't believe why any up and coming director or screenwriter, for that matter, would want to work with kidman... i mean Botoxia... their once promising careers fizzle once she drains all life from the stories they try to tell. Be on the look out for what happens to Daniel Craigs career in the coming months... he might have gotten lucky landing Bond, but hes in two upcoming movies with her.

Well Maclan,I guess Daniel Craig can kiss his career goodbye after those 2 flops come out.I see all the magazines are picking up the story about Keith's night out with Amanda Wyatt.I normally don't like cheating but in this case it was probably for health reasons.Keith needed to be with a warm blooded woman for a change to keep his wee-wee from falling off due to frost-bite after being with Mrs Freeze.SO now Nicold can play her heartbroken victim role again like she did after Tom got smart and dropped her on her bony butt.Maybe she can play this up enough to get some kind of award nomination.God knows she'll never actually get one for her acting.

Talk about FREEZING.

You two gossips have a heart of ice and an Ego so big you've bumped your heads too many times going through doors.

The doors, by the way, are now closed to you both.

Nicoles people are aware of who you are. Real names, locations etc.

Have a nice time at the Welfare Office. : )

I cant disagree with anything you said Cricket. Only a moron could not see that they are a train wreck ready to happen. In the highly competitive world of Hollywood, they really look sad. Have you seen the pictures floating around of them out together in public? They look like a couple of homeless people wandering the street. Botoxia reminds me of a starving, rail thin bag lady, bundled up in ill fitting clothes, with the only thing missing is a shopping cart filled with bags of aluminum cans. Glam they are not. Its not surprising she'll never allow Urban anywhere near a movie premiere, together they look very pathetic.

I would be thrilled to watch her train wreck if keith Urban wasn't on board.I really like him alot.He's very talented and a really nice guy.She only married him because his career was headed up and hers was headed down.So she latched on to him for pr reasons.It didn't help her crap furry movie anyway.All she did was drive him into rehab so now his career is as stalled as hers is.I saw pictures of her out with the niece and nephew too bad she doesn't want to bother with her own.Maybe because they aren't related to her by DNA they are'nt good enough to be seen with her.That sounds like something that conceited witch would think.

What gives you the right to criticize some ones family ?

It's not your business what Nicole does within her family circle.
Let alone talk about it.

As for Urban, his career was over 6 months ago. He married Nicole to ride her coat tails.He could not keep up , so back to the booze and drugs he went. That means he put his Ego and drugs/booze before Nicole , as addicts do, before everyone and every thing else. .Typical selfishness of alcoholics/drug abusers.

You pity Detoxio for being a drunk/addict , as he lay in a detox-Spa , and not his first time, while Nicole travels the world working and keeping her career as lively as ever so she can support him.He makes me sick.What a luxury Urban has given himself. Nicole does not even drink, so she does not have the luxury to be in a
Detox-Spa for months at a time while being taken care of by a wealthy and famous spouse.

She does send me her favorite white wine for Christmas.She does not drink to get drunk.A few giggles ,and she is very funny.

As for the absinthe injestion during the filming of Moulin Rouge, It was a great choice. I would have done the same. After all, the film was about the Acid of the times.

Do like Absinthe once in a while when in Europe.

News Flash ! She's home here in Australia for Christmas being filmed for all the news programmes visiting sick children in hospital....while her own children have been left behind in the States for Christmas....and her husband left behind in a rehab centre. Is that compassion or is that compassion? How can people be sucked in by the images of her with the sick children (she must have notified the press to get this footage on every TV channel) when they know her own kids and husband have been deserted for Christmas?

I would imagine that her kids would chose not to go to Australia with her, and be ignored by her, when they can stay in L.A... and be ignored by her. Cruise's daughter looks like she'd rather go out shopping with Katie Holmes, than to be seen out with her anyhow. Her every statement is so blatantly disingenuous, her every move so obviously calculated, it's not hard to figure out how it will all end, doesn't it?

Keith's publicised affair must be Nicole's 'karmic comeuppance' for having the fling with the runner while she was filming Moulin Rouge.I hope people don't waste too much sympathy on the hypocritial ice queen. Sooner or later her affair, that ended her marriage to Tom and also culminated in a pregnancy, will come to light and everyone will discover that she is not as pure as driven snow after all.There was a two-line mention of it in a Sydney paper over the recent holiday period. Also a mention of her use of cocaine on board a private boat Tom had hired on Sydney harbour for a party just weeks before their marriage break-up. Apparently he didn't use any drugs but she snorted cocaine. In the end, The Truth Always Outs.

Tom and Nicoles divorce was not because of what you have read about .
Nicole asked Tom for divorce papers for her Christmas gift, to be gifted to her on Christmas Eve. Only She knows why she wanted the divorce. Not even Tom knows.He was just being a good husband. He gave his love what she asked for, in a warm and charming way.

I know this because Tom and Nicole told me that was going to be the case, and sure enough it was. It was sad to hear, but nothing is for ever. Put an end to the suspiscious gossip of misinformation and half-clues.

Can you not put your mind around something so sweet ?

Tony,if Nicold asked for that divorce then why did she spend 5 years whining about how much she loved Tom,and would still be with him if he hadn't divorced her.According to her,Tom was the love of her life and she still loves him.Could it be your Ice Queen is lying.She needs to pick a story and stick to it.She give this big speech about how she's moving to Nashville for Keith,then buys a house in London,strangly close to Tom's new house.She says she wants to have a baby and take time off to be a family but she signs on for 3 more movies that will flop like the rest of her duds.She says she wants privacy,but manages to have a group of photographers every where she goes.And don't tell me she doesn't have her pr person call and tell them every place she is going to be.She even managed to get in her photo-ops at The Betty Ford Clinic,which is supposed to be private to protect the patients,but of course she just happend to get her picture taken there.She is so full of crap it's a wonder she doesn't expolde.

well so where are we now? well i saw a story about how her next movie bombed with a preview audience, so there doing reshoots, although the studio denies that. Though I dont need this specific story to be true to know its doomed. I can see how it does at the box office, it'll be a sci-fi movie with no aliens, or special effects, just the usual monotony of her psychological over -indulgence. Still more opportunities for her to get 10 minute close-ups, as she struggles to emote emotional feeling with her eyebrows. Now this movie answers the question I posted a while back- do the movies she does suck from the beginning, or does she ruin them once she signs up to do them? When i first heard about this movie, it was announced as a remake of the semi classic sci-fi "Invasion of the Body Snatchers". Then she signed on, and then the title changed to just "Invasion" and it would be "inspired " by the original move,(sound familar?) and not a remake. Now its something called The Visiting.. The influence of botoxika has doomed this movie to box office obscurity

When they do the biopic of her life, it will be impossible to cast a flesh and blood actress to play her because the effects of over-botoxification will have turned her into a celluloid cupie doll. So it will end up having to be an animated film with somebody mimicking her voice to lip-synch her cartoon characterisation.

Is it true Australians know the future because they are 24 hours ahead of the rest of your planet? My planet is flat and we don't quite understand these psychic-future spherical planets as of yet.

This Ice Queen you speak of in the future tense, is she a goddess you envision ,or is she one of your people ? She seems to replicate herself on celluloid . Yet another mysterious technology to us.Your Ice Queen seems to have many copies of herself. We have begun to emmulate her on our planet, but are still in the primitive stages of cloning technology.We do however, have over 300 flavors of ice-cream we would like to trade you for your Ice Queens Duplication Technology?
Does your religion allow for this ?

Her Majesty pulled a tantrum at the paparazzi yesterday, particularly at Jamie Fawcett.

You are fotunate to have an Ice Queen Goddess on your land, as we understand your temperatures are rising due to climate change.
Do find your worshipping practices a bit odd though.You pay to enter her Temples and pay homage to her, yet you speak ill of your Goddess at the same time. We do not understand this form of worship.

Your Goddess demands much worship from her people. She must have much power over you.

It sounds like she must be frazzled that she hasn't been able to get her botox fix, Morgan, and she was beginning to look very haggard. That would also explain her rush to get on the jet ,to quickly visit her plastic surgeon. Well as for the kids, I doubt Cruise would want his kids exposed to the drug and alcohol addled drama that her life has become anyways. Her life now is just a series of PR stunts to try and cover-up the embarrasment of a sham marriage.

Maclen, I think you have nailed it. This bushfair they went to, is the type of fair that nobody outside of the country local community would even know about. Yet TV and print media were all there, in this tiny out-of-the-way township watching them eat hot dogs and fairy floss and Keith shoot arrows to get her a stuffed kangaroo. How come the media knew? It could ONLY be because she had her PR people ring and inform them. The image of a little bush fair and 'togetherness' with hubby was just a stunt to appear old fashioned/normal/cute. That was the contrived image she wanted projected. But as soon as the very same paparazzi she notified to turn up at the bushwackers 'do' tried to photograph her away from said scene, she called the police to keep them at bay.A prime example of celebrity manipulating the media. She actually wound down the window of her car to address one of them (Jamie Fawcett) and said , for everybody to hear, "F... off Jamie!" So there's your cute little innocen kangaroo for you.

Morgan, I think i noticed the PR blitz back during Cruise's wedding, how it was leaked to People mag. that she had sent a gift and well wishes. We may be seeing the beginning of the cracks from "Botoxique", Cricket...and I dont just mean on her face. What with her main occupation, movies, flopping at the box office, then trying to get her "charity work" established so she can try to stay publicly relevant, she now has Urban's problems she has to try and juggle. Having to take that extra time to schedule in rehab visits, because you know that will be an ongoing situation, seeing as he not only has a drinking problem, but also a drug problem, if its not one, it'll be the other, she's not going to have much "me" time any longer. And I'll bet that will get too unbearable for her.

Maclen, I wonder what her next move will be? She has put on a united front re the model affair story, although indulged in a nasty release of pressure when she yelled F. off Jamie in front of all the media, but it can't last. If the stories re the model had been untrue, there'd have been talk of suing and all types of righteous denial by now. So I am assuming the stories are correct. If so, there is no way NK will take it lying down even though she is giving that impression for the moment.She must be racking her brains (what pitiful little there are) on how to deal with the next step. What do you think she will do?

Well, i agree the whole aussie airport reunion and photo ops was in response to this models claims, coming only days after she made them. and i agree with you that they are probably worried about taking her to court, (remember she took a UK gossip paper to court for saying that she had an affair with Jude Law when they made a movie together a few years ago?) I doubt if she wants this model to come out pubicly with other Urban personal behavior/ habits info. I hear urban has to report back to rehab. in LA, so she'll try to stay low and let this blow over. She'll bury herself in another movie set, line up a huge list of movies she'll sign to do, despite the quality or story cohesion. Anything to keep her mind off this marriage.

Ha Ha Ha Mr Toronto causes great mirth to start my day.
At first I thought his keyboard would be frozen over but Toronto is 10 degrees today which isn't too bad.
Where I am right now at 10am it is already 30 degrees with winds about the same as Toronto ie 30 kms ph;

now where NICOLE is
there are High Temperatures High Winds and Huge FROSTS.
I am almost starting to feel sorry for her.
I hope she is reading about Angelina Jolie, who has far less money, yet has founded schools health clinics and animal rescue organisations in Cambodia fully funded by herself. She was inspired to start this when in Cambodia filming Lara Croft.
If Nicole had done anything even resembling that, she would be more warmly regarded by Adrian Maxwell, myself, and possibly the rest of you.

It's very standard in celebritydom, that once you become established, to get a pet charity you try and cultivate. And it becomes pretty clear who's truly dedicated and who's not. Take Paul Newman, for instance. Decades ago he started his Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, that aids terminally ill children, and he even developed a long term business that funds it. Now lately Jolie has made the global 3rd world charity work chic in hollywood, so you get the likes of Madonna going to Africa adopting African babies, and the like of kidman, who up to a few years ago was into Breast Cancer awareness, now switching over to UN ambassadorship and signing autographs for the kids in Kosovo. What ever you may think of Jolie, at least shes shown a dedication to at least appear dedicated to her cause, and not switching over to the next latest fad.

I believe any-one who must absolutely Act all their lives, from one role to another, and needs the limelight to survive or have something to live for has some serious issues.I would assume they do not know who they are, or want to be someone other than themselves. As with all addictions, running away from ones' self is no answer to ones' issues. The Ego eventually becomes so big it overwhelms the person like an octopus sitting on ones head and strangles them.Both Hussein and Bush have hung themselves. They are each others reflections.

This is not so of NK, T.I.T. She made a decision she wanted to act and become a world famous movie star when she was about 12. She was ruthless even then, the way she went about it. She was low on the ladder re talent amongst the child actors here. There were about a dozen way ahead of her, getting the roles, better than her and so on. They were all friends and supportive of each other and as they merged into their teen years. Sure, there was natural competition to get roles etc. but these kids, once they didn't get a role, would immediately say 'good on you' to those who didn't. All except NK. Her ambition was ruthless, she was nasty and cold to her so-called friends even back then, maintaining only three of them into adulthood. Her was a personal project to step all over her friends...and anybody who got in her way... to get what she wanted. She has not changed in adulthood.

Hey, dont I wish, nothing would make me happier than to have that hole cemented over, to keep it from churning out those ridiculous films of hers. But no one ever said the hollywood corporate dead heads had any taste, or a great sense of business judgment. Otherwise they'd never would have given the green light to films like stepford and bewitched. Not many people find her interesting enough to care to watch these movies, or any other that are due to drizzle out, let alone watch her attempt to get emotional therapy performed through a film role, for her dreary and illusory life.

I see the asinine story wondering if she is pregnant are back once again. You can tell the journalistic integrity this strory has, after being copied and pasted, and repasted... it starts out stating that she herself was spotted buying baby supplies, and the at the end of the same paragraph, it then states that she sent an aide to go buy them. Of course since she is unable to have a kid, the only logical answer if this story is true, is that she got them for a friend or relative who is having a baby. But then on the other hand, it ocurred to me that if this story is true, perhaps she may be signaling her next PR move... since the New Year reunion ended so spectacularly, what with being chased out of Aus., and Urban headed back into rehad ... (for who knows how long!) Maybe she's planning a trip to Africa, to pick herself up a baby? Well only time will tell.

Maybe she's building up a big story about being pregnant in the hope of generating motherly coo-coos from everyone as PART 1 of an attempt for public sympathy.
PART 2 of course,will be the tragic loss of said fictional baby.

Two years on and yes, I still hate Nicole Kidman. Kidman has a hard clawed ambition that she deliberately masks from the public by careful manipulation of the vunerable. Everything she does is carefully stage-managed to elict maximum personal gain. This is not endearing. Exposing this hypocrisy is what drives anyone who has ever seen this woman drop her guard.

Two years on and maybe I have softened my view of Kidman a little because as she ages we can all see that her kingdom is crumbling. As she struggles desperately to maintain her position and status, the simple pleasures of life remain forever out of reach. Sad really.

Money can't buy you love.

Yes AM, it is that which drives me. I don't want to elaborate but I have been around when the guard has been dropped, and I have seen people confused and deeply hurt as a result. She lives in a mirage of her own making. She is not what she seems. I am waiting for something similar to what I have witnessed(more than once or twice I might add),to occur in the public arena. People will be shocked.I am actually very surprised it hasn't already happened. But she is extremely careful and chillingly manipulative.

Returning to the scene huh, AM,? You really touched a nerve with a few of us, anyways. I know i like to rant on this thread, when the mood strikes. What I truly resent about kidman is the double standard in which she is regarded, simply because she was divorced by Cruise. Any other actor who has had as many box office and critical failures would be toast, yet she still presses on in the industry. Still acclaimed as courageous, or a risk taker, and for what? Because she makes unwatchable movies. Well, at least the award Noms. have stopped going her way, otherwise we'd still be hearing about how great she is by the entertainment shills to the end and beginning of each year.

Sounds like you guys are talking badly about my sister.
Again ?

Nothing was ever given to her. She is where she is because she worked hard and many people tried to ride her coat-tails .People who only wanted the limelight, but would not work for it. I know her well enough to tell you, she made many people much money and helped them in their careers. Where were you ?
Standing aside spewing negativity.

And so what if she yells F-off out of a car window. It was n't meant for you. You have no real idea of whom you are speaking badly of. She doesn't care what you say or think. She is her own woman.

Yes it has been a tough couple of years - what with having to sleep with one eye open and all. This forum has been most illuminating and it is particularly interesting to read the comments from people who have actually worked with her - I too have witnessed her behaviour close-up and frankly - it ain't pretty.

The fact this forum has become the most popular one on On-Line Opinion is not through some sort of dumbing down of public debate but rather because the Kidman type of media manipulation is what is currently driving social and therefore political trends around the world. Shelley Gare's recent book "The Triumph of the Airheads" is case in point.

De-constructing the Kidman is necessary if we are to properly arm ourselves for the battle ahead. Keep up the good work!

De-constructing the Kidman. Interesting. The 'thing' that I don't get about her is the collective attitude by Australians to the construction labelled "Our Nic". It's as if Australians, especially journalists, are mesmerised by her and are unable to exercise any thought or reason or individual opinion of her. The latest blanketing coverage in the news has been a collective outpouring of how good she is to stick by her man. What about her children? And how she is going to accompany him on his Australian tour. What about her childen? How she spent Christmas with him in Australia. What about her children back in the US? Are Australians so easily brainwashed that they can't think for themselves? Or is it the journos at fault here? I think it's the latter. Australians, if questioned, would surely by now be raising questions re the neglect of her children. So what is it with the journalists? I simply cannot understand this blind worship of something that is merely a construction without a live, beating heart, who has no time or maternal feelings for her kids.

I did a little looking into that book AM suggested, "The Triumph of the Airheads" and I think it describes perfectly what happens in society. Especially in the fantasy based world of hollywood. Here in the states were suffering from a delussional president who is about to send more troops into a disasterous situation in Irag, despite the overwelming opinion of the american people. As for Kidman, she is in a industry of shallow, simplistic, group think hacks who simply perpetuate the party line. In the fairy tale world of hollywood, it helps if you have a compelling story, in her case, she married one of the biggest actors around, and then when he dumped her, she played it for all the sympathy she could. So it became compelling for her to succeed, and excel so they simply write that she overcome the "horror" of divorce... shallow , but its a happy ending, for a make believe world like hollywood, so it doesnt matter if she ignores her kids, her movies stink., as long as she plays the game.

Still don't understand why you hate Nicole Kidman.
She was nothing but sweet and giving to me when I was in the worst of my life. She had nothing to gain personally or career wise from helping me at all.
Have you all worked with her ?
Morgan ? The others ? Anyone on this blog. Who has worked with Nicole and why are you so extremely angery with her ?
Aside from her maybe snubbing you if you were working with her, what harm has she done you ?
Keep her children out of it. That's just low and cheapens you as a person(s).

After a screening of my last film, when Kidman, Cruise and Spielberg showed up to see it, I invited them to the wrap party.

My cab was hit by a racing car and slammed the cab onto a corner building. Kidman rode in the ambulance with me to the hospital. She took my hand, caresed my face gently. Tom had his Limo driver get in front of the ambulance, stopping it and tried to get Nicole out. She would not leave my side. When he tried to take her out by physical force she insisted she ride with me.

In those dark days in Ontario, our then Premier had cut funding to hospitals. I was in emerg. for 3 hours . The entire time Nic. was beside me. Holding my hand and caressing my head lightly .She asked the station nurse why it was taking so long to be seen by a doctor.
The station nurse told her I would not be seen for at least 10 hours.

Nicole took her Visa and donated $20,000. to the hospital. Within two minutes, I had a doctor all over me.She gave me her cell number to be reached anytime.Asked the doctor a slew of questions about my well being . Thanked her for her $20,000. donation to get a doctor for me. For holding my hand in the ambulance and for putting up with my mothers and Toms ranting about her attention to me, as they thought I was not that hurt. I was supposed to be dead, let alone walking.She was told this by the police, ambulance drivers, para-medics and the doctor she paid $20,000. to see me .

There were no photographers anywhere. I was the only patient in emerg.
besides Tom and my mom at the front desk quibbling, and the station nurse. I have no pictures which I am sure you need in order to believe me about Nicole.NO photogs were called in. Hence, No pics.

Hey Cricket, good to hear from you. It's probably a good thing her kids have hardly any exposure to her, otherwise they'd grow to be as pretensious, self-centered, self consiously calculating, and shallow as she is. They've lucked out that she obviously has no desire to even try to portray herself as an outwardly devoted mother in her public life, but simply the gracelessly aging, cosmetic procedure grasping, eternal starlet wantabe. I certainly wouldn't be surprised if she auditioned for the lead role in "The Dakota Fanning story"!

You asked me for proof of Nicoles generousity as a human being. I swear on GOD and my personal Savior, Cristos, all I have stated is true.

Now you want pictures to prove Kidman was there , but no-one called the photogs. If there were photogs there you would scorn her. Either way I cannot get you off the wrong track.You will get cancer if you keep on like this. Negativity will back up and destroy you.
You are impossible, embittered people and I should feel sorry for you, but I learned a long time ago not to feel sorry for evil. Your lives must be crap,you feel you have to dump on a woman you really do not know anything of. "I heard this and that "and "Did you read about so and so ?" Truly pathetic. Makes me feel like vomoting. Hope I never meet any of you.
Perhaps if you people took your head out of your asses where you insist on living, and have some positive re-inforcement in your lives, you would not feel the need to hurt others b-c of your low self-esteem and endless negativity you are constantly feeding each other.

That being said, I am horribly disgusted with you all, and anyone who believes they can dump on another Human being , using the argument that it is OK to do so b-c they are in the spotlight, is just human waste. Do something good for the world for a change, you selfish little farts.

You are all vile, low, bottom feeding and cruel people who need to get in touch with your inner selves and be introspective about the faults in your lives,and fix it. Fix yourselves. You are all very broken and feel inadequate, am sure. It is so much easier to point fingers at someone else, isn't it ?!The fingers are actually pointed at you,and by yourselves and you have no clue you are doing it.

The recent stage-managed story about NK and KU attending the bush fair has been proved to be just that. A stage-managed attempt at pretending all is well. The truth is that Kidman stayed at her home alone throughout their time in Sydney while he stayed alone at the Intercontinental Hotel.

Yes, Brownie. I do work with and for Spielberg.I write for FOX too. So what ? I have written 4 films for him and he produced them all, along with my friend Tom. Nic was in all of them, as I did write for only my family back then.

Don't quite understand what your problen is though. Am trying to help.

Bye the Bye. I have been inter-acting on the telephone and via e-mail with an Iraqi "friend" in Central Baghdad. I was told early today by my Sargeant Marx at the R.C.M.P that the C.I.A has been monitoring all my calls and e-mails. Typical of Toronto . C.I.A every where.I used to walk in there on University Ave. and drink their beer, with the C.I.A but those days are gone since 9/11.

Sorry. Did not know that my crews secret filming in Iraq would get every one in my data base into interrogation. Every one. Yes. That means you guys. OOps. There goes my hard drive, again . Good bye. See ya in Hell.

It doesn't surprise me at all that urban would stay in a hotel during the "reunion". Its also very obvious he'd rather stay in rehab a few months longer, rather than to get back into the monotony of their suffocating life together.

You'll enjoy this T.I.T......
At a private dinner at NK's mother's house the night before KU was to arrive, NK was so bad tempered and sulky that the family and friends present didn't try to talk to her, or jolly her out of it. Everyone just let her be.
Yes, it was a small, private dinner and yes I have the facts right T.I.T. Sorry that I am unable to divulge further......
And the trip to the family/children oriented bush fair was just the same as acting out a scene in a movie. No wonder she lost it at the photographer, telling him to f. off. It must have been a terrible strain on the poor dear. Yet not as big a strain as it must be all year round on her two children who live their lives without their mother.

There is no other way of explaining this whole "botoxic" phenomenon. A life so pathetically starved... (to skeletal results) for attention, that they become so shrill and irrelevant, that if they weren't filming a movie, or PR-ing a movie, or appearing on a talk show to speak about nothing, or walking a red carpet, they would most certainly cease to exist. It's as if , if they weren't the center of attention they would have no other purpose on the planet, so they cling to their worthless thoughts and ideas, and hold on for dear life, and just hope that there next action doesn't condemn then to certain stupidity and ridicule... That, I think,
would explain it.

She was a real sweat-heart when I first met her. Pains me to hear about this "New Nicole".
Can't say I did not warn her. I gave her a thorough spychic reading for 20 years of her life.It's all come true. Too bad. Perhaps a waste of effort on my part to save her from herself.Do love her though. Life is painfull for us all. That was 1989. I knew when she had her nose done, it was over in so many ways.

Well I find it pretty ironic, but not surprising, Morgan, that someone whos trying to portray themselves as emotionally complex and charitably generous will probably end up coldly distant from her own children. Instant Karma doesn't come about in one afternoon of strolling through a war torn or famine plagued city of the country. It doesn't give that area of the world that much of a "higher visibility" they claim to try to give it, it only accomplishes getting THEIR picture in the news and mags. And it might be taken more seriously, if its not sceduled a day in between appearances of trying to shill your next movie. Mark my words, her next big charitable event wont come until her next movie, (which seems now to be in August sometime) where it can simply be penciled in, seeing as she'll be traveling around anyways, between going on Oprah and The Tonight show with Jay Leno.

I just caught on a movie website, MCN.com, of the contraversy Dakoda Fanning is having with her new movie just shown at the Sundance film festival . I joked on an earlier post that kidman would audition for the lead in the Dakota Fanning story... well it seems Fanning has just pulled a "kidman" move. The fanning movie contraversy centers on her being raped, and thats all everyone seems to be going on about. Well the movie was premiered and it's said to be such a terrible movie, it's not even worthy of all the fuss. Well, kidman failed similarly with Birth, Dogville, and most recently with Fur. You have to be shrewed enough not to simply try and court contraversy, especiallly if you dont have a coherant and clear story that makes some sense. and you need to know what type of contraversial material is going to intrigued people the most... (something like Gibson's Passion of the Christ, with its built in audience.) kidman seems to be more concerned with her acting out her own emotional insecurities and her mass of neurosis, than what a movie go-er might be interested in paying 10 bucks to watch. Which I think points to her obvious narcisism and self centered tendency, she'd be better off trying to be natural and engaging, rather than to try and be so provocative.

Great business acumen, yes. Called Greed, actually.
You are so right Maclen. She would have thought that donning a false nose was 'serious acting'. And her other ridiculous choices such as you mentioned were also probably taken on believing that they would portray her as a serious and complex actress. But she's not.She is incapable. And that's why all projects failed. She is a simple-minded girl and doesn't have the depth of character to even understand, let alone portray, deep and meaningful issues. There is a difference between her and Dakota Fanning though. Dakota has talent. Botoxia doesn't. She will stand out like a sore toe in the film Australia, measured against the likes of Bryan Brown, Jack Thompson and the like. She will stand out as the egotistical, self-absorbed, botoxed Hollywood celebrity amongst down to earth Australian actors who can really act and who don't have Hollywood egos. You know what, she will be all simpering and coy and in awe of the likes of Bryan Brown and Jack Thompson, because while growing up, these are the Australian actors she admired and wanted to become. Being in their company will reflect back to her, the truth of where she came from, who she REALLY is and all her falseness and hypocrisy.

I cant disagree with you, Morgan. Well it seems she was rushed to the hospital after a car accident on the set for reshoots of Invasion... shes fine it seems and was back filming. So it seems the film did bomb with a test audience, hence the reshoots. This movie was filmed last year, I guess they are trying to punch up the movie with chase scenes and the like... sounds like a sub-par production.. probably rushing the reshoots because she has to hurry back to finish the other 4 or 5 movies she'll probably finish in the next 6 months. And I don't doubt that she will drag down this Aussie movie... havent really heard or read up on the strory line for that movie... no doubt it involves another deep loss to her character, in which she must struggle to overcome the grief..and etc and etc... Does that sound familiar?

As the pair drive 2,000 head of cattle over unforgiving landscape, they experience the bombing of Darwin by Japanese forces."...

You ask what zombies have to do with the epic 'Austria'.

Let me explain.
In Austria, on top of a mountain covered with snow and bluebells in the Spring, there lives a family of extremely old people. They were the original Trapp family members and are now so frail and aged, they walk around like zombies.

I hope this answers your question.

On the other hand, the epic 'Australia' will only have one zombie...Nicole Kidman, who will phone her performance through from her ranch in Tennessee on the Bush Telegraph, which is a contraption comprising two tin cans and a length of string.

Having read the description of this Aussie movie, morgan, I'm reminded of another blatant attempt by kidman to show what a real "thespian" she is. And that is her copping of foreign accents in movies, which she no doubt copped from Meryl Streep. Streep is reknown for them. So, in the past few years, you'll notice, shes used an english accent, a russian accent, a southern accent, twice, (maybe even three times?) and a South African accent. And again she plays an "English" aristocrat, which might make you wonder, why not Austalian, if the movie is named Australia? No doubt it was at her insistance that it be anything other than Aussie...and no doubt if you look into her upcoming 20 movies, youll find some more.

Congratulations BROWNIE;
You managed to insult my Country, my Castillian Heritage and my sexuality.
I know Australia was once the dumping ground of thieves ,rapists and buggers, but never did I think their spawn where as ignorant as the English made them to be.
Shame on you, filthy c&u^n%t!
You may want to move to Bangladesh and drink some of their water, Please !
PS. - I was with Penelope Cruz at a concert tonight. Where where you?
A-hole IGNORANT Ill-iterate be-ache.AUGH !Sick !
I have called the RCMP and they consider this IN-ternational Terrorism. The CIA is all over Toronto, and you are on the watch list.

Chris Farley is more deserving of your adulation than 'Our Nic';
in Australia, to call someone a dick is a friendly jibe, nothing more.
After your claim to have co-produced with Steven Speilberg, I went to imdb.com to search which ones.
I am astounded that you could fraternise with the Homewrecking Spanish Slag when you love Nicole so much?
Was Penelope sent by the CIA to inveigle out of you how much you know, or is she as impressed as I am by a teacher who is a qualified chef, and colleague of Speilberg?
Get ya hand off it Tones.

Well its pretty obvious this dude has some serious mental and emotional problems...What with the ranting from all extremes, sounding very delusional, high risk stalker material, I'd bet. Thats why its so important to stay regular on the Meds. Its just too easy to dispute his ramblings and I just quit long ago and ignore it. But it would explain the kidman fanbase mentality though, and why she will never attain a truly lasting and dedicated following... shes just too unstable. She attained her celebrity by hooking up with Cruise, and now its dwinding away with mediocre movies, a truly false and grateing personality, and the warmth of a cadaver... which her career will soon become.

Well, I was flipping through the channels the other night when i caught a glimpse of kidman in Stepford wives...haven' t watched it, not even a full clip of it.. boy does she look horrific in it. What with that ill fitting short black wig which reveals her large forehead, and at the height,or should i say lowest, point of her weight loss. And her bulging eyes and sickenly pale complexion.. she looked absolutely mal-nourished. Already proving that she cant do comedy, light and definaltely not romantic comedy, having dropped out action adventure films in the past, and even another musical, (no doubt for fear she may break a hip!) What else can there be left for her to flail in... well theres still commericials.

Speaking of Botoxia working in the film Australia with its location being in the bush reminds me of a long time ago when I worked on the crew of a film set in a bush location(could have been Deep Ceek in Narrabeen, not sure) and she had a role.It was called Five Mile Creek. We were all sitting round one day eating lunch (it was back in those days when she lowered herself to mix with the hoi poloi)and she started talking about the fencing lessons she was taking. She said she loved to joust with the fencing sword. Another actor, Tony Blackman/Backman/Blackett (? not sure of surname)remarked under his breath, "Who needs swords when you've got claws like hers?" She must have only been 19 or 20 at the time but she'd already rubbed a lot of people up the wrong way so although it wasn't the wittiest of remarks, a lot of people laughed.It makes me wonder how she'll get on working back here in the bush with Australian actors who continued to rise in stature but chose to continue calling Australia home. Ms Queen of Hollywood will be a bit like a fish out of water methinks.

Well Morgan, from the description of the movie ive read, doesnt she play an English aristrocrat? A blue blood outsider coming in to the aussie outback to rule over the local peasants? Sounds about her usual role. Now that you mention it, she does seem to be pretty distant in the industry. Sure theres the lip service about best pals naomi watts and russell crowe, (Crowe, obviously wise enough to bail in not just one, but two films with box office poison Botoxia! ) but since being dumped by Cruise, shes usually alone at premieres or awards, and probably back to solo-ing it with urban rehabbing it. Again, absolutely no seeming comeraderie with any one else in the world! Another sign of her one dimensional personality.

Well, brownie, I would think Watts was getting annoyed of being asked about kidman being her bff at every appearance. Well if it is true the friendship is over, no doubt its due to neglect. Ive always thought of them as being rather similar... only that watts didnt seem as neurotic or uptight. Trying to claw and climb your way to the top of the starlet hill, can cost these women a price in their personal lives, which they seem very willing to pay, yet it seems Watts isnt willing to use every fortunate, or unfortunate occasion to try to reach that level in a superficial grab for self glorification.

just have a couple of late night musings... was doing a news search and saw a aussie article by an interviewer who was recalling an interview with botoxia, and how she was bummed because she wanted to be out on the beach with her "kids" and how as a kid she loved and was always on the beach. And this interviewer was making a point on how pale kidman was, and how could she remain so if she was in fact such an outdoors and beach go-er. Well that answer is pretty obvious! Another thing ive noticed is how she's destroyed her hair. I once commented how awful she looked in those paparrazzi photos of she and urban out walking around the neighborhood, and how they resembled homeless people. Well her hair in these candid shots is very mousy and frizzy, not even shoulder length, and completely bleached out, (wasnt she a redhead?) And then I noticed in a few premieres, at the rome film festival, for instance, her hair is very straight and full, a vivid yellow colored and it's length is down to the middle of her back.... obviously a wig... Well it seems her cosmetic obsession has also claimed the integrity of her hair! She cannot even remain authentic on the red carpet, as shallow as it remains to be...

Maclen you are spot on. She is naturally a redhead...curly hair....very pale and never, ever, EVER was a "beach girl"...and face very freckled.That is the 'real' Botaxia.
Here in Austalia, especially Sydney, you're either a 'surfie' which means you live the outdoor life on a beach. Or you are the 'indoor type': scholars, actors, poets, writers... who SCORN being on the beach-worshipper and 'having the mentality of a surfie'.
Botaxia was the latter to the nth degree. She was absolutely never ever a beach person. She tries to build a 'persona' of an 'Aussie" by talking this way, to suit certain interviews, but in truth, she has become the botoxed boring Hollywood Celebrity. She even lied once in an interview, whilst trying to pretend an allegiance with Australia, that she had a relative who worked on the building of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This was proved to be a lie.She is Hawaiian by birth.

oh yeah, there's a long list of contradictions and falsehoods in what she claims in interviews and her actual life, I'm not surprised about what you've said Morgan. Along with others I've noted before.. claiming to desperately want to have a kid, when it's now obvious she can"t, and saying she would give up her movie career if and when she was remarried, because she doesn't believe she can have both... those pretty much have fallen by the wayside. She just moves on to the next set of image cultivating claims. Well what else is there, besides the whole UN charity "appearances", she can try and cultivate? Didnt she once claim on a talk show that she gave up her "daredevil activities', like swimming with sharks, or some nonsense, as a promise to her family... if all she has left to talk about is Urbans rehab and her movies, well her personal and professional life have completly joined in mediocre synchronicity.

So, I'm reading that Botixica has signed up to present at the Oscars... and just threw a "Aussie' Oscar party for the director of Happy Feet...yeah, it figures, whatever it takes to stay in the limelight, even when its someone elses. Well I wonder if she'll share the limelight with Urban, when, or if he appears at the Grammys? Since in the Aussie oscar party, it seems he was a no show, despite being expected to be there. Although I havent found any alternate confirming story on that, it would only be natural to see the cracks already reappearing in that "happy' union.

... well it seems Urban is on the road again, making a surprise visit at a gig up in canada, it seems on valentines day. I'm sure that was preferable to being with kidman on that day. And then looking strangely kind of "puffy' around the face at a appearance on The Today Show the next day in New York , praising kidman along the way for being such a sport about the whole drug and booze thing. Meanwhile kidman's in LA, herself faithfully praising........ the UN? and from a video feed no less... no reason to drag herself all the way to New York to be there in person I suppose? Well, no movie opening in sight for her to put in the effort, or any need to be anywhere near her puffy husband, I also suppose.... as the clock continues to tick...

The poor woman is reaping what she has sown.

I am intrigued to see what effect the friendship between Katie Cruise and Victoria Beckham is going to have on Isabella Cruise; who is at a delicate stage in teen development and has a loony father.
I sort of hope The Proximity Of Posh helps her come out of her rather plain shell. No daughter wants to ape her mother, but I suspect Posh Beckham has quite a different personality from Nicole and could be very good for Isabella. Possibly not good for Katie's relationship with Tom though.
Of course there is no way the Beckham Zillion$ are going to fall under the Scientology spell that Tom Cruise is hoping for as he allows Katie this alignment of the 2 couples.

In a newspaper article it mentioned NK had a reunion with her kids after 6 months. It said she'd been away from her children for six months to be by her husband's side. What a lot of rubbish. I can't understand why the newspaper and magazine journalists are all so stupid and dim-witted as to write 'touching' stories like this instead of begging the question why she chooses to spend a half a year at a time away from her young and impressionable children. He wasn't even in rehab for 6 months. She just seems to choose not to be around her kids. What sort of person/parent is that?

Well, I dont know that much about Posh Beckham, so i dont know what kind of influence she may be on Cruise's daughter, but you would hope she doesnt adopt her rail thin diet, which kidman also seems to suffer from...As for the hollywood press, they suffer from a superficial group think, and herd mentality. All they seem to care about regarding kidman was who she may have been dating and what dress she wore on a red carpet. This article about reuniting with the kids after 6 months would seem to confirm the statements from a "hollywood nanny" who wrote a book a while back, where she said that kidman didnt seem to have much to do with the kids she adopted with cruise. Being a mother was something she seemed to talk about, especially right after the split with cruise, when it was helpful for her image, now it doesnt seem to come up anymore now that she's got this house of cards marriage she has to deal with.

From the opinions of both Morgan and Maclen,
is it possible that Adriana Maxwell may not actually
"hate Nicole Kidman" but simply
'loathe the PR and media image of NK
created by the mindless magazines aided and
abetted by Wendy Day and her ilk' ?

The real enemy here, may be the tabloid press.
Anyone game to argue in favour of them?
Is it possible, I wonder, to revoke the voting rights of anybody who buys them and believes them?

No doubt that the tabloids are seeping into every nook and cranny of all cultural and political coverage not just here in the US, but all over the world. What with all the newer internet gossip sites, along with the established fluff entertainment shows, we'll be buried with stories like the ana nicole freak show, britney breakdown,etc etc... pretty much 24/7 from now on. You just have to take each strory and decide what you believe with just simple common sense... but no, I do Hate nicole kidman. I saw a promo this morning of the Oprah Oscar special where among others, kidman will interview russell crowe and i just cringed at the few seconds they previewed of kidmans interview. Yes she giggles, and stammers her questions in her annoying and coy awkward manner. and I 'm especially anoyed by her desperate attempt to remain the youthful, naive, wide eyed ingenue, despite actually being this side of 40 already. All other evidence in my opinion point to a shallow and calculating person who is only concerned with remaining in the spotlight, and taking any advantage she can to retain the attention she so obsessively craves.

That coy, shy giggly girl stuff is not 'her manner', Maclen. It's her 'acting a role'. I'm sure you meant that, anyway.
But since she can't act, it is obvious to anyone except herself apparently, that it's transparent and insincere and makes her appear half-witted. But mostly it is blatantly obvious that it's an act and only confirms her lack of talent in that area.
The real Nicole Kidman is hard as steel. As unfeeling as rusty nails. And speaking of "Rusty", he puts on an act too. His natural speaking voice is high. He has learned how to speak like Richard Burton and does so when the camera is on him. Catch him unawares and he chirps like a budgerigar. It will be an interview that will have people reaching for the vomit bags.

Thats a very amusing fact about Crowe, but it is classic... you know this really highlights kidman's taste in men in her life, or lack thereof. Is it any wonder she was horrified when cruise filed for divorce? She seems to have a stunted and adolescent view of relationships with men. I remember a quote from a magazine interview a couple of years ago, when asked what is her type of man, she replied the judd nelson character in the movie The Breakfast Club. nelson played the "criminal".. a vandalizing, bullying pot head lowlife. And then shes linked to steve bing, the dude who was involved with elizabeth hurly, and when she became pregnant, he denied being the father, and claimed they had a "open" relationship, and so any one could have been the father... yeah this would have made a great "father figure" to the kids she was claiming were the most important things in her life... then there was lenny kravitz, wild rocker, flower power regurgitator, who i guess wasn't self destructive enough, so she upgraded to hardcore alchoholic/ addict urban, who I wonder is even going to bother to be around to take her to the prom... i mean the oscars. But then again, she really loves the kids....

It's called 'child neglect'. What about her mothering skills? Her maternal instincts? Oh yes, I forgot. They never even existed. It was Tom who wanted to do the adopting, not her.

Well I've been seeing stories claiming kidman will be appearing on an american tv show called Nip'Tuck... its about a couple of plastic surgeons, and it says she'll be on to get a nose job. Well. it would appear she's addressing all the apparent comments about the botox and procedures she may have had... and this looks like the first step in an attempt to come out in the open, and i soon expect her to come out and admit to a few procedures, hoping to capitilize on the "sensational" news to help her fading movie career. Also, being on a tv show would seem to confirm some of my earlier comments, how she'll be reduced to doing tv spots... first comes the commercials, then the guest shots on tv shows. Then her own series, and then all thats left will be the "stage", which they all say is what they wanted to do all along... sure it is!

Maclen, what's the bet she'll be so desperate soon that she'll be on Celebrity Survivor along with Ossie Osbourne, Skippy the Kangaroo and David Hasselhoff?
Then she'll do The Bold and the Beautiful. She will be written into the storyline as Eric's future wife, after having done away with Stephanie with a poisoned gin and tonic actually meant for Brooke. Brooke will find out the gin and tonic was meant for her and will trap Nicole Kidman's character, Bettina Botoxia, into confessing her foul deed 'live' on the Oprah Winfrey show,thereby sentencing her character to a life behind bars and herself to cope with the real- life series of court cases in which she'll be suing her daughter for her daughter's autobiography "Mommie Dearest Two".

Yes I do not know what all the fuss is about. Her popularity seemed to increase with her divorce from TC. I would much prefer to watch other actresses first before her any day.

There is more focus on the external NK than there is on what her opinions are about everyday issues.So I think the public never see the real NK.

Hey Wakings, I completely agree with your assessment of kidman, she was getting pity votes for a couple of years there. But if you'll notice, since being given an oscar, everything she's done has been tanking big time, to complete irrelevency. That old video, she's far more articulate than she is today, after all the physical upgrades and procedures, all the networking, the hair straightening pressings and bleachings, she's seemingly become neurotic and stunted in her public persona. As you mentioned, and I've said before, she's as dull and as bland as her complexion.

I don't really watch alot of her movies because NK doesn't appeal to me. I did recently sit down to watch 'Cold Mountain'and found the first part very boring.It wasn't until Renee Zellwinger came into the picture did the story line imporove. My issue with this movie was the fact that NK and Jude Laws characters supposively found undying love with each other when they hardly said a word to each other.He goes of to war she writes a love letter begging him to return. Of course JL obliges.What a load of rubbish.

Now I can see why RZ won an oscar for best supporting actress she saved that movie from being a major flop.

well Wakings, I havent seen cold mountain, but I'm sure it was a bore until Zellweger shows up... if I recall, interestingly, kidman, of course, said at some point in PR for this movie, she used Cruise as "inspiration" for this character falling in love at first sight. Its typical of her to bring up her, not just marriage to Cruise, but the break up as well in every interview for every one of her movies, even after 6 years, and still does it, even while engaged and after getting married to urban. I'll tell you, it must not do urban's fragile state any good to read her saying publicly that she's still in love with cruise, and would still want to be married to him.

So exactly what would make the Australian press turn on 'Our Nic' ? ... the way they have turned on poor Jason Donovan who hasn't done a thing yet, but who may describe his romance with Koilye, as part of his own life story. Consider that she has, since Jason, been on intimate terms with Quite A Few Damn Guys, what exactly is his crime?
Maybe Adrianna could turn her attention to exactly why Koilye is mother damn teresa ?
Koilye's "battle with cancer" was mainly having her implants removed first.

It only reaffirms my opinion of her acting which is OVER RATED.I am never totally convinced with her acting. A good actor well take you into another world for a couple of hours she never does it for me.

actually, I dont think its out on dvd yet... I think it was only released in about 200-250 theaters and grossed only about $200,000. With a campaign like that, I'm sure it was meant to be a "prestige film" you know, was supposed to garner Awards attention. Successful movies these days go out on dvd only 3 months after release, the shortest time so far... But i do remember her other movie, Human Stain came out on halloween, october, and wasnt released on dvd at least a good 6 to 8 months later.. I'm sure the studios would rather concentrate on their sucessful movies. I seriously doubt her movies, which clearly lose money on initial release, probably dont even sell enough dvds to make back the money spent stamping them out and packaging of the dvds.

I cannot help but notice that fellow Aussie actress Cate Blanchett appears to be making better choices without the full bells-and-whistle-kickstart Kidman was awarded by marrying Tom Cruise.
Trouble is. on receipt of the golden Willy Wonka wrapper, Kidman quickly turned it into a dead sardine. It is obvious she was intoxicated with her own delusions of grandeur (hotted up by the Hollywood Tom Cruise sycophants in their efforts to suck up to Tom 'Mr. Big' Cruise.)
In short, she lost sight of the truth of her limitations and believed in her own publicity, thus leading her to think she could be another Meryl Streep/Katherine Hepburn. With these heady ideas in tow, she sought arty, deep and meaningful film scripts little realising there was no hope she could ever deliver. Wake up kidman and return to Aussie soaps where you belong.
No, cancel that thought. It's an insult to Aussie soaps.

Well actually for me, Morgan, she going back to aussie soaps would be the perfect solution. being from the states, I would not stumble onto any of her mediocre acting attempts. I also meant to comment on your Kylie post, I dont know too much about kylie, the only thing that strikes me is how much she resembles kidman.... the same thin malnourished body, with the usual grotesque facial impressions of too much plastic surgery.
Kidmans problem is they have elevated her to lead actress status, when she is so plainly a supporting actress. Although it would seem she would prefer to be a character actress, but not having any true character in real life to draw on, those attempts just end up looking ridiculous, and so she ends up with Fur and Birth. And when she tries to do lead, she ends up with Stepford and Bewitched, which she's not strong enough to lead to any profit or success.

It would appear that the movie 'Fur' grossed worldwide $926590 and was only released for a limited time and reached 39 theatres.How does this work ? Not sure on these arty films? Can anyone help me here?

Nomad 48au...I checked out the samples for Tussauds...made a few enquiries...apparently they were rejected because they were too 'animated'....not in keeping with the life model. Apparently Tussauds are waiting on another shipload of pink celluloid to provide a more authentic representation.

YIKES! I'd swear that top row, center pic IS the wax figure... and that last pic, last row looks like she's having a bad reaction to the botox, but I wouldnt be shocked if it actually was from formaldihyde. Wow, Wakings, I was only quoting the US gross of 200 grand, but that worldwide number is pretty weak. But I do notice a trend with her and her movies though, I seem to remember Miramax hit hard times, and the wiensteins lost their studio, funny enough after kidman made two movies for them in that previous year.., that was the Human Stain and Cold mountain, a bomb and a disapointment at best...and Lansing at Paramount was canned as president after the summer Bewitched stunk it up. So it seems not just directors who work with her end up tarnished for the effort, but studios seem to fumble as well . And as for the actors? Notice how well jude law is doing lately! or how about that kid who was in Birth, once very promising, having just worked with Deniro, I think i barely noticed him in a very small bit in Xmen 3. Will they ever learn?

...just watched Tim Mcgraw on a talk show this morning and I just wanted to add to my previous post about how actors/directors/studios are damaged by working on a kidman failed movie... Remember Faith Daniels, country singer, married to McGraw, a few years ago she was white hot, but she wanted to get into movies. Well I remember reading that she was desperate to get a role in the upcoming movie Stepford Wives, and she fought hard to get into that movie, Well the movie came out and flopped big time, and I really havent heard too much from her since... sad...

Maclen - Lady Bracknell would say to Our Nic
"to be in one crummy remake is unfortunate,
but to be in TWO crummy re-makes is CARELESSNESS".

're-makes' are always crap - Bewitched the TV series had great charm, but the movie was rubbish, and Our Nic was pretty silly to be in Stepford Wives as well.
Faith Hill sure was white-hot in 1998 and must be still counting all the money so I can't feel sorry for her suffering from Hollywood's 'allergy to everybody-associated-with flop-except-for-Our Nic'.

I wish that the Urb-Kidm-ANS would both return to Australia to live full time, since they both have a great deal of American money already and couldn't possibly need any more.
I don't understand why BIG STARS absolutely have to be World Citizens.

Cate Blanchett got it right, why cant' Nicole?

oh right, Faith HILL, and not faith daniel... (think shes an american tv actress...) thanks for the correction Brownie.
Well the problem I see in hollywoodland, is theres just so many enablers, from the shallow info-tainment shills telling her how great she is, to her personal lackeys giving her lousy career advice, no doubt in the ultimate goal of alot of $$$...so of course why not make 3 movies in one year... to a studio willing to pay her 17 mill a pop, to be in a movie that costs 80 mill. to make, which will gross only 60 mill, is it any wonder studios are in trouble right now? But of course, theres another studio right around the corner willing to pay out, or in the case of remakes, sell out.

I'd rather see her stuck on a deseretd island somewhere.Without her around Keith could get back to the talented,hot,nice guy he used to be before she came along and started turning him into a Tom Cruise clone. Keith is starting to look and dress more like Tom everyday.And Nicole is looking more and more like his grandmother.It's hard to beleive she's still 3 months shy of 40 she looks a good 10-12 years older.Keith looks like he's aged 10 years since he made the mistake of marrying her.Hopefully that will change after one of them dumps the other one.

In a newspaper here today, K.U. said that he was looking forward to becoming a father and that Botaxia was looking forward to 'having another child'. I am wondering exactly what she means by that? How could she be looking forward to having another child when she never sees the 2 she's already got? She said recently how good it was to see her children after a six month period of not seeing them. And she wants to put a third child through that? Huh?

If Keith really wants to have a baby then I hope he has a girlfriend,because he'll never have one with that dried up old stick.Her eggs are as hard boiled as her heart.Even is she was able to get pregnant there is no way she would stretch out that cadaver like body she's so proud of to actually carry a child.And God forbid she might only be able to fit in 3 or 4 lousy movies a year instead of 5 or 6 if she were pregnant.That would never do. She better stick with her asnine idea of raising goats.though the poor goats would probably wind up like "her" kids.Once she buys them she will forget all about them.At least the kids had a nanny to take care of them,the goats won't be so lucky. Unless she buys a nanny goat.LOL

I find it remarkable that urban by simply saying that he's looking forward to being a dad, all of a sudden the tabs are now saying a " friend" says she pregnant. These tabloid morons have been obsessing over botoxics slight gut bump for over a year and a half now, and they just keep bringing it up, over and over again...
I dont believe for one moment that she can have a baby, if she could, she would of had one already... like in her 20s, and not now try at almost 40 yrs. But of course, theres always adoption, but shes too much of a narcissis, too self absorbed, and too unwilling to take a break from being in front of the cameras to do that.

There is an article in the Irish Examiner with KU quoting he hardly spends time with the adopted kids.
Is this any surprise considering NK hardly sees them!
Lets hope the pregnancy rumours are just that. Does anyone think out there that these two would be ready to procreate? Rehab, supposive affairs they appear to me to be both workaholics. I thought NK was one but KU certainly allowed his schedule to fill up quick after rehab. Shouldn't bitch to much about that though I am looking forward to seeing him in concert in May (Sydney).
I think the chances of this union lasting is not great. What do all of you other folk think?

well, Wakings, I believe it's just a question of time when the split comes... Their still in the early, "lets fight through the hardships, and lets keep up the charade going through calculated PR stunts", which this latest preg. rumor sounds like. You know, she has russell crowe tease her about a possible pregnancy a month ago, urban talks about how he'd love to be a father, and then, of course, magically, all the tabs. are wondering again.. Is she pregnant?... this time? I'm very sure she like people to believe she can become pregnant , but since i believe she cant, and if thats right, she knows she cant, its jsut looks like shes pathetically trying to keep up with tom cruise, publicity wise... he becomes engaged, she becomes engaged, hes having a kid with katie holmes, the rumors of her being preg ramp up, and will not stop, believe me, no matter what it seems.

Motivated by greed and the need to be in the limelight, forever putting her children last and now obviously Keith too, (since she's just signed up for 3 or 4 more movies), what hope does the alliance have? She is obsessed with herself, money and fame. The human beings in her life come last. Always have.
And the pathetic rose-coloured-glassy-eyed Australian media still cannot see this. All they will say is "Poor Nic, let down again, our brave Nic broken-hearted", leaving Keith Urban scratching his head saying 'What the ** happened?"

I agree with you Morgan - it is the constant '3 films every year' thread of her life that irritates us.

The Little Sister just produces an annual sproglet to show parents she may not be 'Our Nic' "but look what I can do instead?"

we need to look at the psych Dad I think.

In her defence, can I remind readers that the Paparazzi lie in wait, bribing corrupt Australian Federal Immigration Officers to alert them to arrivals at Kingsford Smith; so she knows there will be no peace in this small celebrity pond.
Controlled publicity (when one is dressed to go out) is one thing, and having every supermarket trip photographed and purchase revealed is another.

Brownie, your post is very interesting. First tho', re the paparazzi, I have no sympathies there because whenever she does her brief annual mini-visit to the childrens' hospital in Sydney, the entire paparazzi including all tv stations are all there to capture the brief moment of her pretending to warmly cuddle a child. She must pull out all stops to organise the paparazzi to get those newspaper, mag and tv shots. She does the same when she re-visits the Australian School of Theatre for Young People. But what you say about her father is interesting because everybody has always said it's been to get the attention and approval of her mother.But you think it's her Dad? You could be right. After all, 'little girls and their Daddies and all that....he was pre-occupied with his profession when she was a child. Hmmmmmmm.

So, I see its been, what, about 3 days now that the latest rounds of botoxic pregnancy rumors have been swirling around the nets? You have to believe if they were true, she would certainly have confirmed it publicly by now... unless of course it might endanger the 20 movies she must make before the end of the year! Well, the "daddy complex" might explain her completely neurotic need to strife to appear to acomplish something, in her failure to have a kid... as apposed to her sister who it seems just gave birth to an actual baby, and not just to another premiere, for another photo op, for a meaningless movie that will be here today and gone... by noon that same day. And then again maybe the tabs were actually talking about the kidman sister having a kid, and just set the botoxic rumor off by just pure reflex..

And now I've read that cruise's kids were in the audience to watch her.. I guess Cruise got them tickets to the show, so they could see their "mother", in the flesh, because otherwise she wont be too available....

What sort of father allows his 16 year old daughter to move in with a man more than ten years older than his daughter? At 16 Nicole moved in with up and coming actor Tom Burlinson who was then a big star because of the film "Man from Snowy River" - clearly not a peep from Mum and Dad Kidman who must have agreed that this would be a good career move for little Nic. Two years later (when his star had faded) she dumped him.

Now she is pushing 40 and by her own accounts desperate to have a baby (with the latest love of her life) yet she commits herself to six months out bush shooting (yet another) dreary film sans Keith. Having a baby at 40 requires a little thought and commitment - where is this woman's head at? It's now or never honey or does this latest film commitment just confirm that having a baby is just a cover for when she appears in public bloated prior to sticking her fingers down her throat after lunch.

I attended a small party at a house in Mosman after the making of 'Vietnam', in which Botoxia acted. Botaxia was there with Tom Burlinson.As you say Skye, he was quite a big name then. She wasn't. She gawkily stood in a corner totally unable to converse with anyone. She seemed nervous and awkward and I felt sorry for her and tried to engage her in conversation but she turned away so I stopped bothering. I noticed others trying to do what I did also. But she was either unable to converse or was too shy. She also looked totally bored. Later, I wondered if maybe she was actually simply disinterested because people were not talking about her. The two more 'well known' actors there were Tom and an Australian actor called John Woods who was starring in a successful TV series here at that time called Rafferty's Rules. Because it was such a long time ago, I m trying to remember whether Five Mile Creek was filmed before Vietnam, or after. But during Five Mile Creek (I worked on the crew) she was also extremely rude and stand-offish to everyone. Nobody liked her. She had developed a name way back then for being an 'ice maiden' and totally self-consumed. Tom Burlinson is a nice guy. I wonder how they ever ended up together? I guess she was chasing fame but what was he doing?

using www.imdb.com/ as my reference, Our Nic has made 2 or 3 films every year since 1989. 18 films for release 2001-2008.
The only year she had a SINGLE film release was 1990 Days Of Thunder.
prior to meeting The Cruiser, she worked EVEN HARDER !
1983 was 4 films, 2 appearances on Young Talent Time and one in (now famous) Gillian Armstrong's directorial debut.
The imdb.com message board on Our Nic, is a mirror of this one.
One poster, who claims to be a student at Beverly Hills High where Conor goes, said that TomKat appear at every sport event and make demands about photographers showing them as a family.
Another poster claims to know previously secret divorce details - apparently the trade-off Our Nic made to get the $800million settlement, was that Tom has the kids till they turn 16 so he can Scientologise them.

It has been pointed out in another forum that KU every chance he gets declares his love for her. But funny enough NK never returns the favour.
KU has said it so many times, it makes you wonder who he is trying to convince the public or himself?
I also know someone who was an extra on a film that NK was doing (they said NK would have been 19/20 at the time)apparently she through a tantrum because she didn't get her own way.
I think she is high maintenance and self absorbed.
There is also a book writen by a hollywood nanny whop claims to have worked for the NK/TC and states that NK harldy ever saw the adopted children.Poor Isabells looks sad all the time and I have only seen the odd photo of Connor smiling. Goes to show money isn't everything.

Its obvious this marriage is only a PR stunt, and a sorry pr stunt at that, and will be as successful as her last movie. She will never seriously speak of it in interviews. She will never walk a red carpet with urban, because it's a loser to do it, there will be too many awkward questions to deal with. Getting married to a substance abuser will do that. There is nothing in the last 4 years that can be looked on as anything close to a success involving kidman.

It amazes me to read all the newspaper gushings today quoting how thrilled Botaxia is to be spending Easter with her family. Huh? I thought her two chidlren were her family. But no, they are on the other side of the world and she will be in Australia for seven months. We've got to get this straight, guys. Botaxia's 'real' family are her sister's children, not hers. This reeks of supporting something I heard about but could never accept years ago. I didn't like her but I refused to accept what I heard, despite the fact that the source was impeccable. It was when Botaxia and TC had adopted the children. She was out here in Australia. He was in the States with their children. My source was in a room adjacent to hers. She was having a screaming fight with TC about the children and she was yelling that adopting them had been all his idea etc.It was a conversation overheard by several(shocked) people who simply could not believe what they were hearing. It is cringe-making. But to read the newspaper reports today with NK calling her parents, and sister's children 'her family', reminded me of it.

Well Morgan, we can't really blame her for not feeling she belonged with Nutty Tom. They both have 2 screwed-up parents though.

recently I flipped through a Nic Biog (remaindered)at A&R shop and saw a para about her dad being asked by a student in one of his Psych lectures "are you related to nicole kidman" and saying that it infuriated him. She is also quoted as saying her parents "were cool with' her backpacking across europe at 17 years old and comig back to a boyfriend (not named, and after Burlinson) 17 years older than her.
Adriana's initial opinion re the fawning Aussie Press still stands - now we have the lot of them watching Nics abdomen from anywhere they can.
What an unbearable trade-off for fame and wealth.

You are so right, Brownie.
I did forget to mention in my previous post that she was obviously on the telephone screaming at TC.
Does anybody 'out there' have an answer to my interminable question....why do the journalists of newspapers, magazines and television do nothing but gush and swoon over 'our Nic'(correction: Hawaii's Nic) when she couldn't be setting a worse example of mothering and motherhood to all Australian young people? Are they frightened of their mogul bosses who may be friends of the TC/NK machine, as was once suggested to me? Are they just lazy and copy verbatim what her lying PR lady Wendy Day serves up ad nauseum? Or what? Wouldn't you think that there would be one honest or adventurous journalist out there who would dare to suggest that she is a neglectful, uncaring mother? Or that the facade she puts up about her "Mummy never told me she loved me" mother and "stone-hearted" father from whom she appears to have inherited her lack of feeling for others. Especially her own children. If she were to have a baby naturally, you can imagine the hoo hah and sadly you can imagine the effect it would have on the 2 children she already has but doesn't wish to share her life with. It is all so sad, really. And another point...it places the whole area of adoption into a very unsavoury and pitiful light.

No adopted kids in sight how could you not be with your own kids at Easter especially since she didn't see them at Christmas as well. If I hear her talk about wanting baby again I will puke take note of the children you already have NK!

Ah, their regular Aussie road show and photo Op. huh? Yeah, whats best for me is being from the states, I can pretty much bypass the aussie saturation coverage... but I did check out the stories in a google news search though. And your right wakings, her lips are juiced again... saw a very hilarious photo of them both at some show, with her nephew. Urbans sitting to her right, the nephews sitting on his lap looking bored, and botoxic in the back, wearing huge sunglasses, a cap, over the obvious looking wig, looking pretty embarrassed by the whole situation. Obviously the photo Op only required the one kid... or just the one who would agree to go along, and besides, that way she can consign him to urban, while she can contemplate ... on herself.

thanks for the info wakings... obviously cruises adoptive kids werent available for her PR stunt...
Well, heres some more proof that whatever botoxic touches, turns out to really suck... when Warner Bros. got a look at the final version of The Invasion, botixics next movie, they thought it was so "dull and talky" they ordered reshoots. (That does sound like the usual kidman drivel doesnt it?) Now, remember, the shooting for this film began in 2005! The director ,Oliver Hirshbiegel was unavailable, so the studio brought in the Wachowski Bros. to punch up the movies action... hence the aforementioned car stunt, with zombies on board accident a month ago. Looks like the studio was keeping an eye out for another kidman pretentious crash and burn film... now only if they will be smart enough to keep her face off the movie poster...

Thats interesting Maclean
Is it usual for a director not to want to return and fix up what the big wigs want? I think if you worked on a project you would want to be involved with it to the end. Do you know why the director was unavailable and where to you get your information?Maybe his leading actress was too much hard work? he he he
If I remember correctly it took 2 years for 'Eyes Wide Shut' to complete and the the director said it ws because his two leading actors were to interfering.
So 'The Invasion' another NK movie to avoid thanks fo the tip I don't think I was planning to watch it anyway.

Well, Wakings, when i read your post about kidman and urban being spotted on Australia, i just did a google news search , and i saw this story...http://www.collider.com/entertainment/news/article.asp?aid=4017&tcid=1
...its not known why the director was unavailable, but naturally I would just suspect that he refused to do the reshoots. Yes, Eyes wide Shut was a mess, but also recall that Stepford Wives also had a troubled shooting as well. This is not at all surprising to me, seeing that kidman seems to be a very bland and robotic actress, i can just imagine that she simply has her people and agents lining up these scripts, and she just learns the lines, shows up on the set, does what the director tells her and then moves on to the next script. It also seems noticable that these days she seems to be doing alot less PR for her movies.. for Fur, for instance, all she did was appear at the Rome film festival, with not one talk show, or magazine interviews... she seems to have come to the realization that it is futile in the case of her movies...

It is very possible that the original director doesn't want his name attached to a flop. This has happened before. The director having nothing but trouble either with the company or the actors throwing tantrums etc and insisting on doing it their way (Russell CRowe does this constantly.) In the end, after working for months on a film being dictated to by egotistical 'stars', not allowing him/her to do the job he was hired to do...that is, directing...the director, totally disheartened, just gives up. It can happen out of disillusionment or out of anger, and they just walk away and don't want their name attached to the film. It would be interesting to find out if this was the case. Having worked on films/television series with Kidman, admittedly many years ago when she was much younger, I witnessed extreme frustration from director and crew over her demands and snooty behaviour. Behaviour like this impacts on crew, as well as the other actors. It's hard on everyone involved.

Well, Morgan, along with noticing she seems to be slacking off in the PR of her films, I get the feeling she fell into a lull, or a complacency after she became an instant "media darling" after being dumped by cruise, where everything she did was praised and nominated right and left. Although she seemed to take on film after film, I wouldn't doubt that her behavior and demands only got worse, I would say by the choice of roles, she seems to not have given it much thought. If the script was talky, and dreary, and slighty off kilter, she was in. The films she did seem to be at the mercy and whims of the directors she chose to work with, almost like they had a concept, threw together a script, and despite being incoherant and meandering, it didn't seem to matter to her, one way or the other. In fact, she seems to be a masocist for the mundane in her movies.

Morgan you really need to dust off the camoflague pants and re-stock your utility belt and go out and get work on the film "Australia". Infiltration into this project is the only way we can keep stock of the latest machinations of the Kidman. Being stuck in the back of nowhere with the heat and flies and a preening Baz Lurhmann is sure to trigger a series of vitriolic spac attacks and we (and the coroner) will need all the details.

Skye, I'm way too old and way, way too intolerant these days. I bowed and scraped along with everyone else back in those days to the stars like Kidman but I would lose my job immediately if ever I returned to that work now, because I have lost my inclination to brown-nose. (which I had to do...there were always plenty of others who wanted my job, no matter how lowly-ranked on the crew ladder it was. I was not what you would call an 'important crew member'. Quite the opposite. I could be easily replaced.). Back in those days of the eighties the film industry boomed here. Very exciting time and an opportunity, once you were signed up on a job, to literally see the world. Not everything was shot in Australia. Fantastic memories.But to return to a situation of pandering to the likes of Botaxia would make me throw up all over the make-up trailer ! And hopefully, all over her.

Not 'Our Nic' was excellent in 'To Die For', possibly because of typecasting.
She was pretty good in 'The Interpretor' as a duplicitous liar.

'Bewitched' was dreadful. Can she play 'nice' ?

Can anyone remind me of a successful film where she has played a positive character?
(not 'Days Of Thunder' because that succeeded on the Tom factor)

Brownie, I can think of a few positive characters but it was a long time ago and for anyone in the States, they'd posibly be unknown. She was just a (big-headed, self-delusional) kid but they were roles in Bush Christmas, BMX Bandits and Five Mile Creek. I didn't see Dead Calm on principle. What was her character like in that? I also didn't see Portrait of a Lady on principle. Don't know what her character was like in that either although at the time I saw her interviewed on TV about the role and the people I was with at the time all roared with laughter when the interviewer asked her if it had been her idea or the director's, to hit her head against a wall in frustration in the film. Naturally she took credit for it and they showed a quick glimpse of the scene referred to and it was quite hilarious. Looked more like something Mr. Bean would do. Or Basil Fawlty.

"Kidman receives Order of Australia, Friday Apr 13
Nicole Kidman received her Order of Australia in a ceremony at Government House in Canberra.
Accompanied by husband and country singer Keith Urban,
Kidman lined up with other recipients to receive her
2006 Australia Day honour, after turning down the
offer of a private investiture.
The actor was appointed a Companion in the General Division of the Order of Australia (AC) last year but international commitments prevented her heading home to receive the award in person.
Wearing a demure shell-pink frock with a burgundy velvet ribbon in her hair, Kidman received her award from Governor-General Michael Jeffery in front of a crowd which included her parents Janelle MacNeille and Antony Kidman.
The Oscar winner won the prestigious gong for her contribution to the arts, as well as her charity work, including efforts to improve medical treatment for women and children and advocacy for cancer research.
Urban nodded encouragingly as Major-General Jeffery recounted the contribution his wife had made to the arts and to charity.
"I think the great thing about you, Ms Kidman, is what have you have done to better the human condition," the Governor-General said.
"You have become an honorary ambassador to UNICEF and UNIFEM (the United Nations Development Fund for Women), you're looking after children and women's issues.
"You've been a great support for children at Sydney hospital and a great supporter of research for cancer.
"Not only are you a tremendous actress but you are ... a great attribute to the nation."

CHOKE ON THAT everybody.
then Google search "Les Twentyman" and read about a man in Melbourne who has slaved his guts out everyday for decades helping homeless teens.
He is completely broke, but a GENUINE selfless charity worker.
NotOurNic could sling him $100,000 in a heartbeat without altering her life one whit, and do more good than all that waffle described above.

I had to walk out of the room when I saw the tv footage. WHAT charity work? She does a once-a-year flash visit to the hospital, phones in an interview and spends her entire time making movies and promoting them. In her speech, she kept giggling, as if she was saying something tremendously entertaining and yet again mentioned doing her parents proud and also yet again, kept referring to herself when she was 'a little girl'. And yes, what about Les Twentyman? What an amazing guy. But have we ever seen him invested with anything by the governor general? It's a sad, sad comment on the pathetic society in which we live.

Well, what fading, washed up, attention starving celebs crave the most is the constant fawning and compliments. So when they no longer recieve it for their movies, or they're stuck in a image tarnishing marriage, they get their PR firms to set up these types of "awards and presentations", which i have no doubt this is... a I'll scratch your back...etc etc. It keeps them in the spotlight. Again I'm glad it's relegated to Australia, no coverage that I had to be subjected to. Now i only wonder when her Australia movie comes out and tanks, will these same people still hang around to throw her these accolades?

Well, the other Kidman spouse has bit the dust and been admitted to rehab. Botaxia's sister's husband, Angus has entered a clinic for alcohol and drug addiction here in Sydney. I feel sorry for the Kidman parents. Both daughters having their husbands end up in rehab. Could be a tad embarrassing for the father since he's a psychologist.

Really, is that so, morgan? You have to start wondering how these sisters were raised, to make such terrible choices in husbands. It must make celebrating the holidays, New Years for instance, a real challenge, like say, putting a gun to your head and playing russian roulette. Yes, I'm sure pappa, the psych, is very proud of his daughters. Just makes you remember that having all the money you may need is convenient in buying a new townhouse, or a fleet of limos, it cannot give you the moral soundness to make ludid decisions, whether its your personal relationships, your charitable work, and it most certainly cannot buy you a hit movie if your taste is as shallow as kidman's.

To further my past thought on botoxia lack of PR backing for her last movie, it now seems pretty clear she just can't catch a break any longer... after her minimalist promotion for Fur, and it's immediate failure, and her quick jaunt to Kosovo, to walk throught a local field, she was met with a hung over urban, and then subsequent stint in rehab. And then when they tried to have their aussie happy reunion at the end of last year, they were chased out of Austalia by the same papparatzis they hoped would just regurgitate their phoney pr stunt. and just now, on the same day of some cooked up medal of "aggrandizement", the story of her sisters husbands rehab stint is attached also. Looks like that little stunt accident on the reshoots of her next movie is a pretty accurate metaphor for a career careening out of control, like a wagon whos wheels are beginning to fall off. It would probably be wise to jump off, but I doubt if she is capable of making any other decision. If she didnt make movies, what could she do?

I too was amazed about the order of australia. I started to wonder how the whole thing worked and was told that all that is involved is someone nominating you. I think it suxs Botoxia hasn't even completed that many oz movies. I think Cate Blanchett does more for the oz entertainment industry.
Yes what about all those volunteers who put endless hours in helping disadvantaged people.

Well, it would be interesting to learn just who did nominate her... I wouldn't be too surprised if it turned out to be her personal assistant, or a PR agent. But in the world of entertainment and corporate business as i mentioned before,it is a question of you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours. Celebs want the publicity of course, government and organizational heads want the attention it draws, so they give the awards to someone rich or famous. The real people, who are out there working harder for humanitarian needs, 24/7, wont get as recognized, wont get the headlines, do that bubble headed and frivilous actors get the photo ops., because shallow sychophants throw designer clothes at them and donate thousand dollar jewelry, so they can get them advertised... and on and on, they all just feed off each other in their make believe fantasy world of decadent over indulgence. Kidman fit right in that world... or at least she did.

Maclen, the interesting thing is that it did actually say in the Sydney Morning Herald report that she had been offered to have the award presented privately but she wanted to receive it publicly 'so that she could hear other peoples' stories.'Yeah. Right.
Her publicist would have set it al up. And BTW, her publicist goes to a tarot reader for advice. Fact.

YUCK I thought she was a fashion icon. But then again her speech was all about when she was a little girl so she had to play up to that- giggling and performing, trying to win a few more public votes.

So, i take it that these Bananas in Pyjamas is some Shakespeare theatre group? Well the whole skeletal look in hollywood is an extreme attempt to remain youthful looking. Trying to keep your body looking like a teenager... even a boyish look, is preferable to having a normal mature look in their mid years. And 'Tarot card reader? Well that explains botoxica's career choices, and dismal results.

I'm not suggesting that Botaxia's agent, Wendy Day, goes to a tarot reader for career choices for Botaxia or Grunter (Russell Crowe) but she does consult a tarot reader. The only reason I know is because the tarot reader in question is a neighbour. Botaxia and Grunter's agent is married to Mark Day, an old sleazy man who used to be the editor of Truth newspaper for many years. Which says it all.The Truth was a newspaper that focused on sensational stories of sex and crime. I don't know what the equivalent rag in the States would be, Maclen but 'sleazy' or even 'dirty' are the best words to describe it. So his wife would have all the clues as far as sensational story-concocting would go. And all the clues to avoid it also, obviously, which would be needed to cover up phone throwing, affairs,drug and alcohol problems, the negelectful mother image etc.

Sorry Guys, only one out of the three websites is working now, the one that is working is very interesting.(ie the second website)

The Australian was full of Aussies stressing their disapproval of NK receiving the Order of Australia. If your keen you should be able to gotto the home page and find it that way.

For the life of me I can't remember what the third was about-sorry.

My research late last night on NK and KU did bring some interesting views that KU is neglecting his fans and that the Nashville community is not very happy with him either.

Could marrying Botoxia be the biggest mistake of his life? only time will tell.

yeah wakings,I noticed yesterday the first and third links werent werent working.. but that second link to Urban Myths is right on the mark. In fact, when i first read it, i almost got the feeling that maybe I had written it, and had just forgot! I'm beginning to believe that the this whole "marriage" is a concious effort by botoxic to re-establish her Aussie homebase. Once the hollywood scripts stop coming, she'll need someplace to work. and definately, urban is not getting any positive effect from being married to kidman, in fact, i think being associated with her will start to drag him down as well. and morgan, anyone who associates with people you've mentioned kidman is associated with, cant be too grounded in reality.

Yes, Urban Myths, her "I'd give up everything to find love again" schtick is most annoying. And I'd include her statements on wanting to give birth her other most annoying trait. It should be obvious to everyone by now, including the tabloid braindead, that she is incapable at this point to give birth. But i'm sure they'll still write whether she is or isnt pregnant. Its so utterly disingenuous of her to keep fanning those rumors, for the tabloid headlines, and to keep doing it just makes her look desperate, or dillusional, to people who obviously see right through the PR manipulations.

Hi Cricket, hows everything? yeah, "fugly" is a perfect description, I'd say. Urban myths is right on, nothing I'd disagree with. Again another disengenuous statement, love makes her beautiful? Then why all the botox, lip injections and who knows what else? I'm willing to bet all the hair chemical fumes thats fried her real hair are affecting her mind...shes settled on a marriage that has exactly the same situations as her previous one, which ended in divorce.

It's really too bad because Keith is a really nice guy and super talented.He could have done so much better for himself.I think she must be telling him what to say when he's interviewed because he is starting to sound as stupid as her when he talks now.He says one thing one week then says something complety different the next week and nothing makes sense.Just like her.At least he hasn't started using a fake,breathy voice yet.I hope that's not next. I wish they would just divorce already so he could get back to the music he used to do so well.And maybe she could just dissapear for a while.A long long while.

All I can say is "God help Australia !" (The movie she's currently shooting, that is.)
And when will everyone out there in journoland get it straight? I saw again, in an article yesterday, Botaxia being called "Our Nic". She's not. She's 'Hawaii's Nic.' I wish she'd return to the country of her birth and stop spouting lies and promises about giving up her career for her 2 children who are lucky to see her twice a year and for the man she loves and has married. It would be interesting to count on one's hand, just how many days/nights she and her new hubby have actually spent together since their comical nuptials.

I also feel fortunate to be in the states, and she seems to be trying to re-plant her roots in australia again, i can miss alot of the local aussie press stories. In fact, that may be a piece to the whole marriage question concerning these two. Urban being australian, and her movies tanking here in the states, she can transplant herself in Auss. and still have a future base for work.
well as for urban utterances... I was flipping through tv channels today, when i caught the beginning of an entertainment show, and they previewed and urban story, about... you quessed it.. are they secretly expecting a baby? Unbelieveable. well i did a google search, and it seems urban is reading from their talking points, from his gig in the UK, in an interview he talks up botoxic's devotion to him through all the stuff, and that hes really looking forward to fatherhood. So you can expect another round of is she pregnant again.

Hello Everyone,

I don't know if you have seen this link but it is the divorce papers for Nicold and TC:

http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/nkresponse2.html

It clearly states that Nicold has joint custody of her two adoptive children.
What is getting my goat is there is a new tabloid story stating that Nicold and KU have asked to spend more time with the kids, but hang on we can only fit them in during the fall. Nicold has no idea what it is to be a real mother. Oh I keep forgetting making movies is much more important than your own kids.
KU has apparently said he is looking forward to fatherhood. Is Nicold putting words into his mouth or what. I am a fan of KU but he is coming out with stupid statements of late. We all know Nicold needs medical intervention to fall pregnant, unfortuanately she is here to make the movie Australia when is she supposed to fit this pregnancy in!She can't even find the time to see her existing kids.

I didn't take much notice of her till she married KU. KU is sounding more like her everyday so I am losing respect for him too. I am going to his concert in Sydney next month, I hope she isn't there and I hope he hasn't changed from his previous performances or I won't bother going to anymore of his concerts either.

Glad to get this of my chest!

Morgan, i dont know that much about that backpacking trip... maybe it was from someone else on the thread? It does sound to me like it might be some kind of pr info on her early acting bio? My distaste for kidman came only after about a year after she was dumped by cruise, hardly even noticed her before that. and of course she hasn't stopped talking about it for the past 4 years! What besides the split with cruise would have made her a media darling and tabloid target? Her movies? Her acting?

Reply for Morgan & MacLen:
At Easter I noticed a Nicole biography on a remainders table at the A&R bookshop chain.
I only flipped it, but I specifically recall reading
Her Own Remarks Quoted, in summary:
*that after giving a lecture at Uni of QLD her father was asked "are you related to Nicole Kidman?"
*at 16 she lived with a man 10 years older, not named.
*at 17 she backpacked Europe ALONE.
*after that trip she lived with a man 17 years older, not named.

Well Brownie, that is so interesting. The biog must have been written by someone who hadn't a clue.She never backpacked around Europe alone or with anyone else. And she never lived with older men. Her 'steadies' were Tom Burlinson, then Marcus Graham, then TC. Those few suitors in between were fly-by-night affairs and certainly nobody 10 or more years older than her.Have just had a thought....she played a backpacker when she was in her late teens, in 'Bangkok Hilton'. Maybe that created confusion for the poor guy trying to collate 'facts' for his book. There's no way she'd backpack alone anywhere. Although she's as hard and icy as a glacier with regard to herself and her career, not only does she have no feeling for anyone else, underneath she's terrified of living in the real world or facing real people or being real/honest herself. Note how she fearfully clutched her sister's and ex-girlfriend's (Rebecca Rigg) hand when she trod the red carpet after the marriage break-up. She was probably terrified someone had found out about her 'Moulin Rouge' on-set affair and was going to surprise her with it.

I have just heard that KU cancelled his concert in Manchester at the last minute. He has flown back to Australia apparently. It must have been a last minute decision because his band didn't even have a clue and were ready to play. KU supposively has voice problems.

Does anyone know more?

Haven't heard about that one Wakings, but just heard that she is going to do a re-make of How To Marry a Millionaire (or whatever it's called) playing the Marilyn Monroe role.How many hundreds of times did she tell anyone who would listen that once she got married to Mr. Right, her career would take a back place to the marriage? Apparently K.U. is not the love of her life.

I actually got onto the UK ticketmaster and they labelled the event cancelled.Be interesting to see what comes of all this.
Nicold doing a Marily Mnroe movie what a laugh, lets clink our glasses to another flop. She annoys the crap out of me.
Wonder if KU has been a naughty boy again and has come home to save the marriage and get his bottom smacked.

Have a Good Week Everyone!

KU's concert in Manchester was indeed cancelled around noon the day of the show. No official word yet from his camp, and it was reported that the band was surprised. The reviews from the previous UK shows were that his voice was great, strong and clear. Rumor has it that he flew straight to Oz... but why, if his voice doctor is in Nashville? Things that make you go hmmmmm.... His next scheduled show is May 11th in Oz. I'll keep you posted.

Watching the events of this so called "marriage" is like watching a chimpanzee drive a car through an obstacle course, driven at the top of a mountain, surrounded all round by thousand foot drop cliffs... not surprised at every misstep, and so sure of the ultimate outcome.
At a movie blog I read about the remake of How to marry a millionare, and the guy at this blog said he thought she was too old to play the lead. But thats been the biggest flaw in her movie choices lately, she believes she's still a youthful starlet, playing naive, wide-eyed innocents looking for mr right. Well i read in a review that she used a dreadful and annoying Monroe breathy voice in Bewitched, cant even begin to imagine what a full on Marylyn Monroe impression she'll butcher for this movie.

Maclen, I believe she also used a breathy Marilyn Monroe voice in Happy Feet. Guess she knew the MM movie was coming up and got in a bit of practice.
KU doesn't stand for Keith Urban anymore. It stands for Kidman's
(e)Unoch.
He was in rehab for drink and drugs. He had just had his extra-marital affair exposed to the Texan model. He only spent 3 months, if that, in rehab then went straight back to work. Recovery and Rehabilitation doesn't work like that. It usually needs at least 12 months' ongoing treatment and support to help the addict continue with their recovery. He's certainly not getting support from her, since she scuttled off to the other side of the world for 5 months. He's not allowing himself to rehabilitate and recover by plunging straight into a heavy work schedule.He has set himself up for a relapse.Cancelling his concerts at the last minute could be the start of this. I feel sorry for him. He's turned into 'Mr. Kidman' and doesn't know what to do with it. I bet he relapses big-time in the next couple of months. And on the subject of Botaxia, the line-up of Australian actors in the support cast is awesome. Although she has the starring role, she will be shown up by the supporting cast for the non-actress she is, in the same manner she was shown up by Renee Zellweger in Cold Mountain.

What movie or interview have you ever seen her in that she doesn't use that breathless "Marilyn" voice? It does not become her. She comes off as the inane, uneducated, role player that she is.

Keith was photographed coming out of a grocer in Darling Point today (or yesterday), wearing a t-shirt and jeans, but also a stocking cap. For someone with a "throat infection" shouldn't he be a bit more covered up, or are you Aussies experiencing a warm spurt of weather. It was interesting that the pic was taken by none other than F-U Jamie Fawcett.

I believe if this remake is made she will really talk up her affinity with MM...monroe actually lived a life that kidman loves to play on film, confused, troubled and ultimately tragic. As for Australia, morgan, she will not stand out in that movie, for sure. At this point she is a hindrence to the movies she's in. Just as sure as her next movie, The Invasion... or Visiting, whatever, its going to be another summer flop, despite what the showbiz media conglamerate says in their fluff pieces on her stuff. After years of her acumulating mediocre films, less and less people are getting exciting about her next one.

For those of us in the GLDU (Great Land Down Under), have you noticed that dear old Auntie (ABC to foreigners) is replaying “Grass Roots” late on sunday nights. For an example of class ensemble acting from a top notch cast (how they managed to get a collection of actresses and actors of this calibre available at the one time was remarkable in itself), you couldn't do better. Quite apart from the outstanding script.

The roles may all be caricatures, but they are played with such understated hyperbole (if that's not an oxymoron), and with such aplomb, that they are full of conviction - even to the background bit part of a Council street sweeper sloooooowly and repeatedly brushing the same patch of car park. This series is truly a study in group acting.

And why am I posting this here? Because, would NK ever be seen in something like this? Nah, firstly, as a TV series, it'd be beneath her, and secondly, there's no main “starring” role for her, yet she couldn't find a better vehicle to learn the art of acting with all that talent around her. But then, why ruin a superb production to benefit someone who wouldn't know how to take advantage of it!!

If it should ever travel OS, you non-Ozzies should do your darndest to catch it, and see what talent Australia really has, rather than judge us by the wax dummy. (Or by the hot-panted budgie).

Hey nomad, I have no doubt that kidman would be completely out classed in acting by most aussie television actors. If you remember that scene from Eyes Wide Shut, where cruise's character comes home late, and he's sitting on the bed and kidman, his wife is in her underwear, whining about how he just doesnt get jealous over anything....just horrific acting, she stamps her feet and flails her arms to show frustration. And this was back in 1999! .And just two years later she's the most acclaimed actress of her time? She's an oscar nominee two years in a row? You see, theres a reason she does either small indies, not much expectations, or moody, confused roles, where she can just be moody or confused, and not have to stretch too much. Well I dont buy the sudden diefycation, and notice her abject failure the years since she was given an oscar,... or since her phoney nose was given an oscar

http://www.podcasts.cinematical.com/2007/05/09/first-test-review-of-kidmans-the-invasion-and-its-a-doozy/

... and, big surprise its not good. It seems its still as bad as the studio execs originally thought. These are the usual steps that lead up to her films, changing release dates, bad buzz, pathetic opening, and early fizzle.

your welcome morgan. Yeah, just exactly what I expected from this movie... here's another, earlier review , the first at Rottentomatoes.com:
http://www.dreadcentral.com/index.php?name=Reviews&req=showcontent&id=1453

I expect another slow bleed before this movie comes out, and it will be curious to see if she gives it the minimal pr, as she did with Fur, and also if you remember, she blew off the premiere of Stepford wives to go present at the Tony awards, of all places. I can understand her obssession to pile on the future roles, being at how dreadful looking back on her recent movie past must be.

Well thats two reviews that both state Botoxia uses three different accents. That is terrible acting this one will probably go straight to DVD.

It seems Antonio Kidman has separated from her husband Angus. How sad! Wonder who called it off. This would explain the family yacht outing without Angus and the older children. Maybe this is the real reason for KU cancelling the Manchester concert as well.

Well, that seems to be the latest drama of botoxica's latest Aussie compound brood... explains the latest photo op at the urban concert. Ive read that it was nauseating. It seems urban was groveling to botoxica, who was in the crowd, that just went on and on and on... Also it seems it chased Isabella away, who I read flew back home to LA last friday, two whole days before mothers day! I guess she'd rather spend mothers day with her real family, and, presumably, an actual mom, katie holmes.

Yes, she is definitely a smoker.Beer and wine are her drinks of choice. Off set, whilst filming Moulin Rouge, she indulged heavily in absinthe, as did many of the cast and crew at that time.
Seems none of the Kidman family have taken her daughter Isabella into their hearts. Antonia Kidman has called her new baby Sybella. Strange name to give her when her first cousin is Isabella. It's as if Isabella doesn't actually exist.

That reminds me of an incident that happened a few years ago when kidman had gone to the Cannes film festival. The director of the film, Dogville, i think, and a few other actors in the movie, were at a press conference. Director Von trier, was at the podium answering questions, and kidman, who was sitting just behind asked one of the actors for a cigarette, and Von trier had noticed and asked her to please not do that... he pleaded, begged her not to start smoking, but she just popped the cig in her mouth, lit it and started to puff away furiously, you know, like some defiant spoiled brat not letting a grown up tell her what to do. I remember, because anti smoking groups had protested it because the press conference was being telecast live on local TV. I seriously doubt that it mattered to her what she did in front of a foreign audience. Also another thing intesting, if you ever watch her acceptance speech when she was given an oscar, if you look closely, her lipstick in the middle of her lips looks lighter, or even completly removed, no doubt of her running off to the ladies room to take a drag off her cigs... it looked slightly bizzare.

Well I didn't have a clue on the smoking thing thanks guys. I even went a step furhter and googled 'Nicole Kidman smoking'. Not only did I come across a photo her lighting up at the Cannes Film Festival 2003 but there were other quotes of her saying she smoked pot all day while doing a scene for 'Eyes Wide Shut'.

So my next question is: 'Is she into party drugs?'

The more I learn about her the more I think she is disgusting. OMG she comes across as so perfect and better than everyone else it makes me sick.

At the party T.C. put on, aboard a party boat in Sydney harbour at the end of filming of Moulin Rouge...in December of that year....the time he went up on to the bow of the boat and called out "I am the king of the world".....there was plenty of cocaine present. He probably didn't indulge. I don't think he smokes or drinks or anything. But I do know there was cocaine a-plenty and I do know that a doctor was employed to be at the party, who was on duty throughout the entire time. I'm not suggesting he was there to help out any victims of cocaine using...he was just employed to 'be there'. Fact.

Hey wakings, the news coverage on botoxia is just as shallow and as bland as the paris coverage, because in reality she is as shallow and as bland as paris. And you'll never guess what the latest news on the gossip wires is? you'll never quess... Is she Pregnant? Seems urban is talking it up again, only this time he says it may be next year. Watch it urban, by next year you may be dumped back in Nashville, where it seems he is prohibited from going back to right now. Botoxia is too busy right now in Australia, and so she had urban report in, and has him performing in her aussie PR road show.

I have recently read a book called 'But He Says He Loves Me' by Dina L.McMillan. It is all about manipulative relationships and how to avoid being trapped.

Lets see the similarities in this so called fairy tale marriage of NK and KU and the quotes in the book:

The abuser says: "I am looking for a relationship that will last a lifetime". KU lyrics from a song dedicated to NK ....we got a Once In a Lifetime Love ....."

Indicators that the abuser is using the 'push-pull' strategy:

"Does he flatter you to an excess sometimes? Does he go on about how fantastic you are and how rare you are, even if you know you have not done anything exceptional?"

KU has an obssession with telling his concert audiences how wonderful his wife is. What does NK do, acts all coy and bashful, like a teenager. It is quite evident her self-esteem is low and she just loves being glorified at anytime, especially in the public arena so she can be in the papers. KU is using this weakness to his advantage. This is not a healthy relationship at all.

NK was once quoted as saying, around the time of his rehab "you don't choose the people you fall in love with" well you are playing right into his hands.

This is one sick fairytale marriage! I think they both got married for the wrong reasons, they are both narcisstic and this is a great model of a marriage for 'what not to do'.

yeah wakings, that book does describe that marriage to a tee. All that you mention. I once commented here of a quote botoxic made in a magazine interview a few years ago, stating that her idea of an ideal man was the Judd nelson character in the movie The Breakfast Club, you know the high school
stoner/ criminal/ malcontent. The reason she was so devastated when cruise dumped her is she was fortunate to have hooked up with cruise, right, the BMOC, early on, I think she was in her early 20s. And that lasted for 10 yrs. so when she was dumped by him, she still had an adolescent and immature reaction to relationships. She always became flustered when asked about her personal relationships, denied everytime if she was linked to anyone, was reluctant to talk about it, and when she did she only spoke of it in a childish fairly tale manner, you know, someday my prince charming will show up and we can live happily ever after in our castle. Well, and so now, she's found her stoner/addict, dysfuntional alcholholic she has to drive to rehab, and has to keep from falling off the wagon... or more precisly, her traveling PR bandwagon.

KU was being interviewd on radio here the other day. He had his mobile on him and said that if it rang, it would be her (she was about to board a plane)and he would have to stop the interview briefly to speak to her. Everyone agreed that could be done. Sure enough the mobile rang and he walked away from the radio jock to have his conversation with his princess. But the naughty radio jock didn't turn the mike off and the entire conversation, though faint, was recorded.KU just spent the whole time assuring her that she would be okay and that he loved her and was using stupid lovey dovey words that were ridiculous. It was as if she was too scared to board the plane without the big bombardment of a 'love brief' from him first.Interesting for all the thousands of listeners waiting for him to return to the business at hand.

The latest is that NK and HJ had a VERY private party for the cast and crew of 'Australia'. Is it me or are they putting things in the papers just for the hell of it. Do we need to know about their little shin dig? They are obviously worried the movie won't be that good if we have to hear every little detail about what they are upto. Did we hear this much crap about Moulin Rouge? I just don't recall.

The true blue 'real' Australian actors on this film will balk at all the rubbish and trivia. They won't be one scrap impressed by Botaxia. Yet Botaxia will be intimidated by them. They were the actors who were highly respected in the Australian film industry when she was just starting out with stars in her eyes and looking up to them as if they were gods.

Can I just say, Eric Bana has just started promoting his next movie "Romulus, My Father" which is released tomorrow. This is the first I Have heard about his movie and so far the reports have been favourable.
This is a perfect example of $$$ buying the media. We hear everything that is about themovie "Australia" butnothing for Eric Bana new flick until now.
I guess Botoxia not only is getting money for a set amount of money but maybe a percentage of the gross?
If they kept things more quiet maybe there would be more mystery about the whole project.

There is no way kidman would ever accept a percentage of movie gross... its basically one or the other. either take a certain fee up front or take a %. I cant recall any of her movies that grossed more than it cost to make. Otherwise she would not be paid for the flops shes in. Also i dont see how this Australia movie is going to do anything outside of Aus. Again, its another payday, but I dont expect it to take the rest of the world by storm. and up next, i forsee another flop in the waiting with The Invasion, which I've commented on before, and from what i hear of this dark compass? film...its a lord of the rings/chronicles of narnia wannabe, so either way, I dont see it doing anything for her faltering career, she'll just be another shadow in the tidel wave of special effects.

I thought you guys might like to hear about KU being denied entry to the set of the film Australia yesterday. The security guard wouldn't let him in and when he persisted, she told him to 'go away and get a life'. She didn't know she was talking to Mr. Kidman. I guess she must be so busy guarding movie sets that she doesn't have time to read magazines and newspapers so she can recognise the actual 'stars'.

Morgan, well it sounds to me this guard did actually know who urban was, hence the "get a life" quote... perhaps she was trying to give him some sound advice? Urban would be wise to take it and STAY AWAY! Or wait, could this be the first signs of discontent from botoxic? Perhaps she made it known on set to keep urban out, perhaps she wasn't ready for another photo op and had urban cooling it outside of the "target" area? With this calculated marriage, all the different scenarios may be quite plausible.

Maclen you always make me laugh. You have a great wit. Yes, maybe you're right.
Oh and by the way, I was reminded by someone the other day that the 'leak' outside of any leaks originating from the crew and cast of Moulin Rouge about Botaxia's affair with the runner to whom she became pregnant/which was the cause for TC finishing the marriage, was actually her sister's husband, Angus. At the time, he and his wife Antonia were going through a bumpy period and he has never really got on with his sister-in-law, the Botaxia Barbie Doll, so family loyalties went right out the window with a few drinks. This is how the majority of film people not involved with Moulin Rouge found out. Angus was 'the mouth'. The person who reminded me of this said that she wondered if he may speak about it again, now that they have split, if things don't remain hunky dory with the family. Interesting point upon which to ponder.

Hey thanks Morgan, but with kidman its just so easy...she has become such a bizzare characture of herself, with the botox, lip injections, anorexia, the chemically fried hair.. and that doesnt even begin to describe her pretensious platitudes, noxious neuroticism, and cinematic catastrophies...
... and yes it would be so hilarious if anghus was to dish a little trash on botoxia, and it would only take one offer to him from some magazine to get him to talk, I'd figure.

Early opinions on Invasion that I grabbed off IMDb:

"So yeah, tonight I went to a free screening of this movie around here in Woodland Hills, CA. I really wanted to like this movie, I truly did. I love Daniel Craig, and Nicole Kidman isn't so bad usually (yeah, right Leroy!). But man, did this movie stink. I sort of got the feeling from everyone's reaction after the movie that they felt the same way. Not that it was confusing at all, but while you are watching the movie the scenes kept jumping from the past to the future then back to the past only to skip back to the present. And the acting. Oh God. It was like Daniel just didn't give a crap. Like he just wanted to go home or maybe go get something to eat. And I've seen Nicole cry in other movies before, but she never sounded like a dying giraffe like she did in this. Now that I think of it, she pretty much cries in every scene that I saw. For good reason of course. The ending was crap."

"This is like the Stepford Wives all over again. What is it with Nicole Kidman and terrible remakes of classic films that are made even worse by last minute reshoots and studio tampering? This film and Nicole's shifting accent are guaranteed to sweep the razzies this year. (There's another 17 million dollars + down the crapper!)"

And here's just a random comment about Botoxia herself:

"Whoever said she has extreme chemistry with her costars is crazy. She has zero chemistry. Sean Penn? Nothing. Will Ferrell? Nada. The last movie she made in which she had chemistry with a man was Moulin Rouge. That was 6 years ago! I was a fan but I have given up on her. All her movies suck total ass anymore. She needs to retire with all that money she got from Tom."

Hey snogget, excellent finds... Ive only been able to see only a few early reviews of this pic, both bad, of course. Why is it that just normal people who see her films can see right off what crap they are, how horrific they are.Yet movie studios, who supposedly are expert on the art, and business of the industry , will still hire her to be in their 40-60 million dollar movies, only to have them crash and burn, time and time again. Do they not read the reviews of her, what, past 8 movies to know what insignificant losers they are going to be. Are these studio execs. and directors totally oblivious to the obvious conventional wisdom that she adds not one shred of quality, value, or success to the movies she wanders through? Are they all just going through the motions of the industry, following the present trend of hyping the phoney PR and media whoring likes of lohan, hilton and ritchie? Cause ive just heard that lohan still has another job!

Conditions of the location for the film Australia are extreme. I'm willing to make a bet there will be big trouble stemming from her inability to cope at some stage. This film might do okay because of the other actors in it, unless her part is so big that it ruins every scene in which she is present.

If you recall, morgan, russell crowe was to co-star in this movie, and i also remember he had dropped out of another movie he was to have made with botoxia. And didnt the director of this movie, Australia, and that other previous movie that was scrapped.... didnt he direct kidman in moulin rouge? oh yes and that "grand epic commercial with kidman, Chanel #5 or something? It seems likely that crowe had serious problems with the scripts, which can only mean that kidman gets major screen time on this movie. I can also imagine his disgust at the kidman star treatment she'll probably get, this being her present to her "native royal subjects"... Yet dont be too surprised if there isnt news coming out about delays and breaks in production, because she needs to rehydrate in her air condioned trailer or portable mansion...

Maclen, she has a temper.... something else that is never written about in the media, yet must surely be known. She screams her head off when she is really ruffled. If she does that often enough amongst the blowies, mossies, heat and long hours, new friends will drop like flies.

I actually think there are issues between RC and NK. When RC got married his bride to be didn't want NK at the ceremony apparently.

With regards to RC link with Australia. I just read that he was going to star in the movie but he pulled out along with the other director and they are now doing a project together. The other director pulled out just before production.

I should say I think they pulled out of this project at different times. RC was earlier but then the co-director pulled out late last year.

Danielle (RC's wife) is a great actress, a great musician and singer), is not deluded by publicity (nor by RC's publicity) and is nothing like NK in any way at all. She is not jealous of her, as has been insinuated by press in the past. She just isn't like her. NK used to have strong friends amongst her peers and colleagues many years ago. The only one left is Naomi Watts and even then there's a bit of a quesion mark over how long that one will last. All the dropped girlfriends place their children before their career. Complete opposite to Botaxia. Therefore there'd have to be a gradual widening of the gap in friendships.
Wakings, I think you're Australian?Those in the US may not know these names butsome of NK's close actress friends who have fallen by the wayside over time due to diffeent priorities and ethics are Rebecca Rigg, Mouche Phillips and Kym Wilson.

Hi Morgan,
Yes I am an Aussie, and am embarassed NK calls herself one. She is far from a female aussie model.

With regards to Naomi Watts I read somewhere that NW partner doesn't like NK. What do you know about this? Come to think of it has she had the baby? Must due anyday now.

Actually I was a little surprised to hear that hugh jackman and botoxia were old friends, going way back... so what is it with aussie celebs? Once they hit the big time their all old friends going way back? I"m wondering, morgan and wakings, being your australian, do you have any info on that? Was just wondering, if that was in fact true, or is it just a case of hollywood revisionism simply for the fact of PR for their movies?

I don't think Botaxia and H.J. go back a long way at all.Not as 'close friends'.Her 'close friends'...the few she had.... have always been female. I also know that any friendship with H.J.'s wife is only relatively recent also. (the last few years). But like R.C.'s wife, Danielle, Deborah Lee is a very, very different type of peson to Botaxia. She too, puts family first, career second. That is the difference between Botaxia and all her'friends'. The others prefer to spend as much time as possible with both husbands and children and will temporarily or permanently if need be, sacrifice their own career opportunities to do this. Also Maclen, another small point but relevant. Years ago everyone was in the same boat. They supported each other. NK went off on her own like a bee to honey where career opportunity beckoned, often treading on others , even her friends, to get what she wanted. Some friends stuck with her after she went to the US. Some shifted there also. Rebecca Rigg, Kym Wilson, Naomi Watts. But with marriage and children these friends made very different choices to Botaxia. I think Naomi will make the choices of the old group of friends, putting children first. Remains to be seen, I guess.

Well you are aware of my special annoyance of the "Is she pregnant stories"... perhaps the fact that she cant have one is the reason she concentrates on her career. And judging by her seemingly lackluster role as mother to adopted kids, I seriously doubt if she is gonna take time to devote any effirt to adopt another kid with Urban next year as he is quoted as saying. That is probably the strongest knock against her, in my opinion, is her complete disengenuousness. While you see more and more of her contemporaries, as you mentioned, taking time off to have children, and being real moms...Julia Roberts and Gwyneth Paltrow come to mind, she talks the talk, but definately doesnt walk the walk. But I'm afraid it is inevitable that she will continue to be a scourge on the people who revile her every lousy movie that polutes the movie and entertainment screens, even as less and less significant they are..

I managed to sneak a look at some new songs Keith Urban has been working on for his as yet unamed upcoming album (he releases about 6 a year!) and managed to get a copy of a song he has penned about Our Nic (now His Nic)and here it is:

My (um - Coff! Coff!) Angel Nicole

By Keith U (married to Nicole K)

She emerged from the clouds
At a time that was dark
And I’ve quickly learnt that her bite's
A lot worse than her bark

I stepped outta rehab
And saw my new wife
I looked around for a bar
Fuc#, I knew I was in strife

What was I thinking?
My mind was a mess
She's that thin
She can't wear a dress!

My Angel Nicole
I should ‘ave listen too my mates
Who said she was a mole
My dear Angel,
My Angel Nicole

Two weeks after the wedding
I was back in the clinic
Nicole wasn’t happy
I called her a cynic
She got in a huff and said
Enough Keith! Enough!

My dear Angel,
My Angel Nicole

Now I’m clean n' sober
And I hav
