Nicole Kidman: Darth Vader with a Blond Wig
Nicole Kidman (in Givenchy Couture) and country crooner Keith Urban leave the Claridges Hotel hotel in London early Tuesday morning. Mrs. Urban, in one interesting black-leopard-print gradient coat, has been promoting her latest film The Golden Compass, out Dec. 7.
The Golden Compass London film premiere is TONIGHT at Leicester Square’s Odeon Cinema in Westminster. Nicole should be there with the film’s other major movie stars including Daniel Craig, Eva Green and Ian McKellan.
Reviews of Nic‘s performance:
“The first part of a trilogy based on Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series is a visual knockout, extremely captivating and a sci-fi feast for everyone 12 and up. Kidman, in particular, is back to business, slithering around, having a grand time as Mrs. Coulter.” — FOX News
“If Darth Vader wore a blond wig, a slinky dress and a dab of Chanel behind each ear, he could hardly be as evil as Nicole Kidman, playing the gorgeous villainess Mrs. Coulter in this spectacular new movie version of Northern Lights, the opening episode of Philip Pullman‘s fantasy series His Dark Materials… This is the very best sort of part for [Kidman]: statuesque, elegant, seductive, with a hint of cold steel. In many ways, it’s her juiciest character since the sociopathic meteorologist in To Die For.” — UK’s Guardian Unlimited
