Kidman, Crowe @ Oprah's Oscar Special

Kidman, Crowe @ Oprah's Oscar Special

Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe appeared on camera together for the very first time. The Aussie pair interview each other at The Beverly Hills Hotel. Here’s a mini-transcript of their conversation together:

Russell: So, how’s Keith doing at the moment?
Nicole: Keith’s doing very well. Yeah. We’ve, I mean we’ve been through a lot. … We’ve dug really deep. Three months into our marriage we had to dig really deep. And that’s what we’re doing. And we’re in the process of doing it.
Russell: It’s very courageous of him to just pack up his toothbrush and go to rehab. He must have you at the very forefront of everything if he’s thinking to just do that.
Nicole: You’ll make me cry now so stop it!
Russell: No, seriously, I think you need to see it from that perspective.
Nicole: I do.
Russell: ‘Cause he’s a very, you know, he’s a proud man. He’s a very creative soul and for [him] to just go, “Right, I need to do this thing for the rest of my life to progress.” That’s pretty cool.
Nicole: It is.
Russell: Are you going to have a baby?
Nicole: I hope so.
Russell: Are you going to carry a baby?
Nicole: Would you stop it? This is really dangerous territory! Yes, I would hope so. Anything else you want to ask, Russell?
Russell: Well, I just want to see you walking around barefoot and pregnant.
Nicole: I’d like to see that, too.

Nicole won an Oscar in 2003 for The Hours. Russell took home the coveted statue in 2000 for his work in Gladiator.

    I adore these two. And the interview was just awesome. Julia and George were annoying as hell.

    Thank you JJ – I just loved this interview. I think Nicole was trying to show the world that Russell isn’t all just “throwing telephones” at front desk guys–and that deep inside he is a nice guy. Loved how she talked about Bella and Connor–how both of them did.

    Funny I usually love Julia and George and am real blah about Nicole and Russell, but their interview was so much better. Very geniune and sincere, like you can tell they were actually friends. George and Julia were trying way to hard to seem chummy.

    Observer Says:

    I agree with post #2, Risso. I only saw a little bit of JR interviewing GC and NK interviewing RC. The JR-GC interview was so extremely boring and shallow while the NK-RC was kind of full of depth. This RC-NK interview seems to be deep yet funny as the same time.

    Gag me!! Nicole Kidman needs to STFU before her botoxed face breaks.

    Observer Says:

    #8. That’s the right word, one pair was very sincere and human, while the other was totally insincere and “full of themselves”, as if their mere appearance on TV should make people interested.

  14. 14
    Tobin Says:

    I don’t think George and Julia are full of themselves at all, but they just tried a little too hard i guess.

    Gussie Says:

    Russel is genuine and always gives a good interview.

    As for Nicole, I always liked her as an actress. She is a very good actress and was once a very beautiful and spontaneous woman.

    But she couldn’t let herself age naturally. Now she is so botoxed she lost all expression in her face. A wax dessicated doll. Also ten years with her cult nut former husband took their toll: now she is always guarded and comes out very predictable, image conscious… and boring.

    As for chemistry: they have none, obviously. Alas, the last time Nicole had chemistry with someone was in 1995. With Joaquin, in “To Die For”.

    Lara Says:

    I don’t care if Nic has or not botox.I continue thinking she is the most beautiful woman in the world.
    I don’t like Russel as a person, but he is an excelent actor.

    Sarah Says:

    Nicole seems like a nice lady. Russell never comes across as genuine and his interviews are allmost allways painful to watch. This was no exception.

    I’m so impressed with both of their lines of questioning. They both came across as thoughtful, intelligent and caring. Very cool.
