Nicole Kidman: G'Day Australia!

Nicole Kidman: G'Day Australia!

Nicole Kidman keeps close to director Baz Lurhmann at the G’Day Australia black tie gala (hosted by Jacob’s Creek) at New York City’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel on Friday (January 23).

At the event, Baz said that Nic had been quoted out of context.

“It’s been universally reported that she didn’t like the picture,” Baz said. “Forget nastiness, it’s just a lie. [She's a] great artist. It’s disappointing in our country that you have to put up with a lot of rubbish – people who just knowingly set out to be destructive when they know it’s not true. It will probably be the No. 2 or No. 3 biggest Australian movie of all times.”

And how cute is Baz holding up Brandon Walters, who plays one the aboriginal boys in Australia?

G’Day Australia is a week-long program showcasing the very best of Australian culture, fashion, food, wine, tourism and business. Many of the activities are open to the general public, so check out the full list at Australia-Week.com.

    Its a shame they procured the amount of press coverage for this event under false listings as Ms. Kidman was not made available to the press line – essentially wasting the time of dozens of folks for their own politics! and you still publicize it!

    This night was about “Baz” and others. This is the same gala where Nicole and keith first met back in 2005. Nicole looks really happy.

  • RUBI

    NICOLE LOOKS NICE.

  • ellie

    Thanks Jared again for seeing different stars I adore..
    Nicole Kidman you are just pure elegance so beautiful always , you light up the room as always, and its so nice to see you.. Your another actress I adore.. you so great and what you do.

  • Jijna

    Well the movie was a flop, as it had a budget of $130million and only made about $60m worldwide.

  • notbusy

    #5, you are WRONG. Australia has made over 150 million worldwide!

  • ************

    They look like Mortisha and Gomez from the Adams family. Nicole looks dreadful in that dress!

  • someone

    Baz Luhrmann isn´t holding up “Eddie Baroo”, it is Brandon Walters ;)

    Nicole looks really fresh, natural and happy. I am not the biggest fan of the dress although it shows of her endless legs, which are absolutely to die for.

    But I love the fact that she has strawberry-blonde/ red hair.

  • Heather

    I think her comments were twisted and sensationalized…when I read them, it was pretty clear to me that she was just uncomfortable watching her own performance – in ANY movie. She did say that the only other performance of hers she’s ever watched is Moulin Rouge, because she felt she owed it to Baz Luhrmann. She didn’t say she disliked the movie, she said she hated watching herself.

    I worked in radio for years and still cringe at the sound of my own voice on tape.

  • hannibal

  • plez

    Why didn’t Nicole act like a grown up and respond to the lies herself.

  • British Latin American

    I love her hair.

  • taco

    The red hair is fake hair!

  • essie

    woah her lips..

  • Galey

    No matter what Nicole says it will be taken out of context. She did explain what she “really said” but there are people who just thrive on seeing the negative. I thought the movie was wonderful. I think Nicole is beautiful inside and out.

  • ra

    JJ – please correct yourself. The young boy is Brandon Walters, who is not just “one of the aboriginal boys” in the movie “Australia”. He played a major role as Nullah and narrated the story.

  • BECKY SMITH

    She should be happy to beat her ex husband’s movie Valkarie..!! world
    wide..!!

    Where is hubby ..makes you wonder?? or Hugh Jackman..oh yeah
    he is in Vancouver doing Wolverine..sequel..

  • ayj6m6l

    1 question…. why is she so beautiful in her movies and so ugly in all her pics??? seriously.all of the pics i’ve seen till this min.

  • Christina

    Nicole looks stunning as usual. I don’t understand the need to be negative about actors. Do we know their minds.

  • mia wallace

    I love Nicole!!!! she always looks stunning :)

  • NOELLE

    Nicloe is beautiful, i wish she would stay away from botox and lip filler. How do people think it makes them look good. Don’t they have friends or family to tell tem how odd it makes them look. Typical american obsession with superficiality. Go back to Oz Nic where people appreciate you for your natural beauty and where it is not a sin to get a few wrinkles

  • Jime

    His name isn’t “Eddie Baroo”, is BRANDOM WALTERS!

  • :)

    that strawberry blonde hair REALLY makes her look younger, LOVE IT
    and LOVE NICOLE, she is so beautiful inside and out!!

  • andamentothat

    G’day mates!! Australia week is a cool event for all things Aussie..Nic and Baz are always doing their part to honor their country. She does look good here although the black is a bit too black.. guess i have been getting used to seeing that oyester/gray color on everyone.

    Jared, who is eddie barroo?

  • codyjo

    Hubby was back in Nashville with Sunday Rose. This is the best she’s looked in a long time. I LOVE that dress and her reddish hair.

  • mimilala

    She looks absolutely stunning and gorgeous. Say what you want to say, but she really can look so incredibly beautiful and close to perfect at times. Soooo elegant!

    Of course, I wish she would drop the lip fillers a bit…she doesn’t need them and they take away from her beauty.

  • Kat 2

    She shows more “natural” affection with Baz then her own husband. Hope she was careful when she got out of the car & sat down with the thigh high slit.

  • Get real

    Are you people nuts. . .She looks like a wax figurine with trout pout. . .She was once a pretty good actress that could move her face and use something beside her hands to show emotion when she acted. now she has traded all her facial skills that an actress needs to act for wrinkle free skin via botox. . . fat lips via whatever they have stuck in her lips and and fake hair they have stuck on her head. . .all she can do now is pose stiffly. . .if you think that’s acting more power to you But ain’t she beautiful as a wax figure pumped full of chemicals to keep her 41 year old body preserved perfectly just for you….No wrinles, no grey hair, no thin lips (even if that is your natural lip line) and of course not a trace of fat. . . not even when pregnant. Beautiful no . . Perverse yes

  • an oldie

    I loved “Australia”. Nicole didn’t look “frozen” in it as some bloggers claimed. Those bloggers just spread lies and people believe them. The movie was beautiful and some of the scenes (the rounding of the herd per example) were breathtaking. Nicole did a great job, so did the little boy. As for HJ, I had a few gasps whenever he appeared in the film . I am surprised “Australia” didn’t get any Oscar nominations. Go see it, it’s worth your time and money.

  • Dritz

    Their is nothing wrong with a woman wanting to look good as she ages especially in Hollywood. But I have to say NK has taken it a bit to far with the botox and the fat lips. She looks way over done and she does have grey hair now. Maybe she should give up all the wigs and hair pieces and just go short and grey like Lady Judy Dench.

  • Fendi fan

    Nicole is just too precious! Lovely dress.
    and Baz is such an amazing director. Australia was a great movie, enough said!

  • Claire
