Nicole Kidman Receives Elle Hollywood Tribute

Nicole Kidman Receives Elle Hollywood Tribute

Nicole Kidman looks green glamorous in Prada at ELLE Magazine’s 15th Annual “Women in Hollywood” Tribute held at The Four Seasons on Monday in Los Angeles.

The 41-year-old Aussie actress is the November 2008 cover girl for Elle. Here are some fantastic highlights from her interview:

On becoming a mother later in life: “At 41, it’s a more painful love. I look at that little girl, and I’m, like, Oh, no, what’s going to happen? It’s almost like my heart is stretching; I’m feeling all these muscles stretch with emotion. It’s a beautiful love but there’s a lot of fear and pain for her life, and for Bella’s and Connor’s life. I like to believe that nothing was stopping Sunday from coming into the world.”

On her screen life compared to real life: “My screen life was far more exciting and beautiful than my real life. I went through this long period of being alone. I was very, very damaged, and I did not want to jump into a relationship, because I would have nothing to give, just shreds of what I was.”

Shirley MacLaine on Nicole: “She has this heavenly quality. I find her so otherworldly beautiful, otherworldly intelligent, otherworldly resilient, I call her My Alien. And only an alien could lose all that baby weight in two weeks.”

Naomi Watts on Nicole’s personality: “She’s not a wallflower, but she can be very shy. By nature she’s someone who isn’t instantly the most comfortable person in the room, but she fights that.”

Ben Chaplin (her Birthday Girl costar) on Nicole’s humor: “She likes naughty-boy humor. She’s very happy with that. I remember the director saying, ‘If Nicole’s flagging, you just need to sauce her up a bit.”

    I would love to see Sunday Rose….if she resembles her mom.

  • happy

    hopefully the clearly visable wrinkles on her face will stop all the critics from saying she doesn’t have any. she looks great in green – probably one of the best colors her for sure.

    Then it’s time for another shot of botox.
    Therapeutic effect of botox last less than 6 months, I’m sure Nicole Kidman had already arrange her next visit in preparation for her movie promotion on Nov or Dec.?

  • Jack

    Lovely, as always. Elle recognizes style.

    Looks like she did her own make-up, not as flawless, but more beautiful because she looks like herself.

    BONUS: No tree trunks, such a nice change on this particular site :)

  • Yeah Baby!

    A sleek redhead in a green dress, that’s what I’m talk’in bout!

  • root moron

    So what if you can detect she has some gray hair in her part. It’s only visible from a magnified photo, at over 6 feet in heels, no one is hovering over her head.

    Hair grays naturally in your late 30′s and again, so what? It happens to everyone and most women dye their hair.

    In the movie business even the men dye their hair.

    Again, you did discover the polio vaccine, you simply obsessed over a magnified photo.

    #25 How do you know she is. That kid will starve to death if she is. What’s she going to get out of those things? Ice water and silcone.

  • sidney

    She is looking very old, she reminds me of my grandma.

  • I adore her!!!

    so beautiful as always

  • boogie

    fyi….i have several friends that have “fried egg” boobs.

    They breastfeed their kids succesfully…even if their breast size hardly increased at the time. In order to breastfeed- you don’t have to have watermelon booms. gee!

  • Dear Sidney

    If Nicole reminds you of your grandmother, this tells us something about your family.

    Your grandmother, a a trailer trash slut, was pregnant at age 12, that goes for your mother as well.

    So, will you follow in their footsteps to appear as a beautiful 41 year old grandmother?
