Nicole Kidman: Oscar Win Made Me Feel Empty

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Divorce, Features,

Nicole KidmanNicole Kidman felt her life was “empty” after she won an Oscar.

The 46-year-old actress picked up the Best Actress prize for her role in 2002 movie The Hours and though she was delighted to receive the prestigious accolade, it magnified the struggles in her personal life following her divorce from Tom Cruise in 2001.

“[Winning an Oscar] can show you the emptiness of your own life, which is kind of what it showed me. I was having professional success and my personal life was struggling,” Nicole - who has adopted children Isabella, 20, and Conor, 18, with Tom - told Australia's Harper's Bazaar magazine.

These days, the Grace of Monaco actress is happily married to country singer Keith Urban and she says their quiet life in Tennessee with daughters Sunday, five, and Faith, two, means she much prefers to take on smaller movie roles: “I'm not carrying the whole film, and it's not six to seven months' work like Moulin Rouge! I get to come for three weeks and then go home.”

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Divorce, Features,

Nicole KidmanNicole Kidman claims her marriage to Tom Cruise was “perfect” before their split. The Grace of Monaco star has revealed their divorce in 2001 after 10 years of marriage was a complete “shock” to her system and it took her a long time to get over it but her current husband of six years Keith Urban has made her feel “secure” again.

“I fell madly, passionately in love I was reeling with Tom. I would have gone to the ends of the earth for him,” she told DuJour.

On reflection, The Others actress admits she “was so impulsive and naive” during her relationship with Tom but at the time she felt, “We were in a bubble, just the two of us. We became very dependent on one another. Our life together was perfect. It took me a very long time to heal. It was a shock to my system.”

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Divorce,

Nicole KidmanNicole Kidman suffered from depression after her split from Tom Cruise.

The 45-year-old actress - who adopted two children with the Mission: Impossible star before they parted ways in 2001 - blames getting married at the young age of 23 for spiraling into depression after her divorce, even though she has no regrets about their relationship.

“I got married really fast and really young. But I don't regret that because it got me Bella and Connor and I did have a fantastic marriage for a long period. Then when it didn't work out I had to really dig deep and find my way through depression. I have no regrets about all of it. It was all part of growing up.”

The flame-haired beauty is now happily married to country singer Keith Urban, with whom she has biological daughter Sunday Rose, four, and 22-month-old Faith, born to a surrogate mother.

Nicole Kidman Sent Sexy Texts to Land ‘Paperboy’ Role

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Photos,

Nicole Kidman at the Cannes Film FestivalNicole Kidman sent “provocative” text messages to Lee Daniels to land her role in Paperboy.

The director was reluctant to cast such a big-name actress in the low-budget movie - which sees Zac Efron and Matthew McConaughey play two brothers investigating the case of a death row inmate played by John Cusack - so Nicole went to extreme lengths to get him to agree to cast her as a sex-crazed woman obsessed with marrying a convicted killer.

“Lee said, 'Look, we've got no money, you're going to have to do your own hair and make-up. So I actually went into my bathroom and I got out the fake tan and put on fake eyelashes and got a hairpiece thing that was platinum, threw it all on and texted a photo to Lee in all these different provocative positions. That's how it came together. What he sent back I can't say, but it was a thumbs up.”

The actor, who is married to , describes the story contained in his scripts to Suri and then listens to her questions because he thinks it makes him a better actor.

“I’ll put Suri on a swing and tell her stories when I’m working on a script. I’ll start with the beginning of the movie and take her through the story beat by beat. Of course, I make it age-appropriate. She’s four years old.

Can I create a character that will make her happy, that will make her laugh? And you know what? She makes me get better and better, because she’s always asking me to do it again.”

Although I saw many bloggers comment on the tuxedo dress Nicole Kidman wore to Sunday’s Academy of Country Music Awards ceremony, there was something far more distracting that caught my eye: her face.

I know Kidman’s forehead has always looked a bit too wrinkle-free, but did the Oscar winner recently inject something into her cheeks as well? That scary image is enough to make this girl’s eyes go wide shut.
