Nicole Kidman - "Vogue" July 2008

Nicole Kidman -

Nicole Kidman is featured in a 16-page photo spread in the July 2008 issue of Vogue. Photographer Annie Leibovitz traveled to the set of Baz Luhrmann‘s upcoming action-adventure epic, Australia, to photograph the film’s star. Here’s what she had to say in her interview with Vogue:

On her knees splaying out at a 45-degree angle during the interview: “The whole experience is so primal… Just look at how I’m sitting here with my legs apart. This is the way you have to sit when you’re pregnant.”

On her country life: “I’ve been in Tennessee, just sitting. We have a farm there, and I have an organic vegetable garden. This is a path I’d not taken before. My mum’s always gardened. My sister gardens. And I’ve now conformed to the Kidman women’s hobby of gardening. And it is just a hobby. I’m not feeding the troops. (laughs) There’s a softness to the Tennessee landscape that I just love. It’s very beautiful out there. We have deer and wild turkeys.”

On how carrying a child is something new and overwhelming: “When I first saw the baby on the ultrasound, I started crying. I didn’t think I’d get to experience that in my lifetime. I like the unpredictable nature of it. To feel life growing with you is something very, very special, and I’m going to embrace that completely. I don’t believe in flittering around the edges of things. You’re either going to walk through life and experience it fully or you’re going to be a voyeur. And I’m not a voyeur.”

On her and husband Keith Ubran never being apart for more than five days at a time: “I’m so committed to this relationship, and so is he. I don’t have addiction problems, but love is a very powerful force in my life. It’s my fatal flaw and my virtue.”

    Wow…Nicole look’s beautiful in this photoshoot.

  • daisy

    Thanks Jared. :)

  • lola

    I actually think this is a great photoshoot. Of course she looks flawless because of the airbrushing but at least they didnt airbrush too much the way they usually do making the actresses look completely unreal or distorted. I am sure others will disagree and bring up her botox but I still think she looks great here.

  • christyjolie

    Im sorry but I dont see what is so great about nicole i just dont see her as beautiful!

  • abby richards

    she is looking really beautiful in these photos from this post. I saw these amazing photos of her with no cloths on laying on her property in the backyard.. she seems not to be aging .. lol

  • christyjolie

    I dont think she is ever attractive! i dont mean to be rude but in my opinion she isn’t a beauty.

  • aummw

    Debi de hacer caso de los consejos sobre los ángulos de la cámara y la composición cuando saqué las fotos que el tenía ahora en las manos. No había sabido en que orden iban los rollos ni que había en ellos cuando los había hecho revelar. Había muchas de mis pies en la hierba, borrones grisaceos en el aire que eran pajaros y un granulado intento de atardecer sobre el sauce blanco.

  • daisy

    What happened to my comment? Thanks jared. :)

  • jason lover

    gosh, vogue when will you ever get some originality?

  • Ratu

    Love her !! Beautiful as always.

  • john moyers

    I agree with the girls statement above… I saw those photos and being a dude I must say yelllloooowwww.. they are nice. prothinspo always has those hot photos of the skinny chicks. I like em boney.

  • oly

    I don’t find her a beauty, as she’s obviously had some sort of enhancing surgery. On another note, I find it somewhat sad that she never mentions her love for her two children with Tom, that (motherhood)should be a commitment as well, and she goes more than 5 days without seeing them…It’s strange, isn’t it?

  • Annie most

    Absolutely no mention of her other kids…lovely.

  • CMAR

    I really like Nicole and wish her the best, always.

  • Angel Lima

    I have to agree with the other two writters up top when they said they saw those other photos on prothinspo and she does look ageless..

  • Lillianne

    She is such an old fashioned Hollywood beauty. I’m so happy that she gets to experience the miracle of carrying a child. Best wishes to her and her husband.

  • sunnykidstyle

    She looks great and seems to be really ecstatic. It’s nice to see her so happy and content, she has been trying to get pregnant for a long time. I just hope that wont mean they will spoil the child and make a brat out of him or her. No, I think the two will do just fine, after all Nicole has experience as a mother, though I am not sure how much time she get’s to spend with Connor and his sister.

    If you have a second to spare, I’d like to invite you to my new blog about stylish design for kids :):)

  • TO OLY

    You’re a lame brained idiot who criticizes without knowing the facts. If you had read the article you would have seen that she does, in fact, talk about her two children with Tom Cruise. It must suck to be you.

  • ewww

    she looks beautiful and those pics are gorgeous!

  • Anonymous

    stunnykid how much more free publicity do you need before you leave us alone? I didn’t see anything stylish whatsoever on your website

  • vi

    Nicole is a great woman!
    Intense, intelligent, sweet, beautiful, talented and…

  • serena

    I think Tom Cruise “got” the kids in their divorce settlement. She may still get to see them but it’s a Scientology thing. Nicole balked eventually at raising the kids Scientologists or didn’t want it for herself and there was a deal in which she had little say and had to or wanted to keep the details quiet. She might have been in a very rough spot about those two kids who she raised from babies. I remember when they first adopted them. She was a good and loving mom, or so it seemed when she was with Tom. Then it all got weird after he left her. That’s why this baby means so much to her.

  • fhvhjlj

    Nic is fantastic, wonderful

  • rrrr

    so beautiful, thanks so much for pictures

  • paul

    Tom is crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nic is happy finally

  • mary

    Nicole is gorgeous

  • aummw

    I think thast nicole has something of all the characters sheplayed, from the ngril to die for to mouline rouge to the hours, to the others. When I see her TV interviews, she shows her chemistry too. On the other hand she has something of mrs coulter, and something of margaret and the wedding…and the she loves gardening and all this

  • aummw

    I ahve to reckion thta I ams still more sued to her doubled voice than to her own

  • Kitten

    She is the most gorgeous thing ever.. love her!
    I wish I could pull off the fair skin as well as she does, she’s so lovely. I hope she gets to be the mother and have the family she seems to really want and deserve. Her interviews are always great.
    I’m not going to weigh in on her relationship with her other children, cept to say I hope things are ok and if not then better days ahead.

  • to serena

    what you suggest makes a great deal of sense. but i have another theory. it could be the nicole is protecting the privacy of her two children. she may think that it’s no one’s business what is going on with them. nicole is not alone in this. daniel craig will never answer any questions concerning his daughter. he is very protective of her privacy.

  • WelshBoy

    Beautiful Nicole!

  • Kattieee

    When the baby borns?

    i don’t know

    it’s in july???

  • Samantha cooke

    Since Nicole mentions her interest in gardening, I thought Nicole and her children would enjoy and experience that turned my kids onto gardening and nature. Growing a TickleMe Plant! Recently featured by the National Gardening Associations Kids Store,
    If you want to give your young gardeners an experience they will never forget, consider having them grow a TickleMe Plant. This is the plant that will close its leaves and lower its branches when you tickle it. They sprout in days and can be grown indoors any time of year. Just go to for seeds and growing kits. This plant has turned many kids into plant and nature lovers. I know, because I grow TickleMe Plants in my classroom. Your children may never look at plants in the same way and neither will you!
    Happy Growing

    Annie and Oly – if you bothered to read the article you would have seen where the author said she talked a great deal about Bella and Connor during the interview.
    Plus as another poster said, she was always a loving mother. AND she has always fiercely protected the kids’ privacy. Unlike Tom who pimps them out when it suits his needs.

    HA! Jared, you are becoming famous and now there are unpaid ads and links in everythread !!

  • Halli

    Beautiful. Vogue is great for pictures but I hate their articles.

  • youwillmissme

    Gorgeous! Go Nicole. Love you!

  • bella

    in that outfit, dont you just want to jump into bed with hugh jackman….he can put his cowboy boots under my bed any old day!

  • jade

    Love Nicole. She looks so beautiful in the dress. She is a lovely person.
    Wishing her and Keith much happiness. She deserves to be happy.

    Thanks Jared!!

  • yeah she gardens when she’s not spending 4 hours at the spa and having her hair and nails done or exercising…she means someone else gardens and she gets to say she does.
    celebrities suck.

  • julie

    I don’t mean any disrespect because Nicole seems to be such a lovely person, but…….is she pregnant in these pictures? and why does she look so serious? I would expect her to be bursting with child and just beaming, but that’s not the look at all. It doesn’t make sense to me, even Jessica Alba smiled a little.

  • 2 cents

    I don’t think she has any relationship with the adopted kids and this pregnancy of hers is fishy

  • Jill

    Fishy how? She’d be out of her mind to fake a pregnancy; the lie is too easily exposed.

  • Bits

    WOW wow wow. Nicole is classy, accessible, she has grace and is so uber talented. Nic is a shining star. Her beauty is a work of art,.

  • Love Stars

    The thing about Nic is that all of her is beautiful. She’s not a frigid cold pretty head on a stick! Look at the curve of her arms, her body, but it’s the kind of beauty that tributes every woman. She exudes real strebgth and womanhood from character. Grace is right. We miss you Nicole, show us more. We are so sick of the trash bobbing in the bloids!

  • rien

    To Oly, just in case you are too lazy to read the article from Vogue:

    “These days she’s most at ease talking about her children. Kidman already is a mother, of course, and she takes care to sing the praises of her adopted daughter, Isabella, fifteen, and son, Connor, thirteen. But carrying a child is clearly something new and overwhelming.” Vogue.
    In the next time, try to read the whole article, and put everything in context.

    We don’t know how she feels about being apart from her children. Because I can not imagine how painful it must be for her.

    And if now, she is talking about how happy she is becoming a mother, feeling a nature grows inside her, I can only be happy for her.

  • rae

  • zoe
