  • Jim

    BEFORE YOU (SPECIALLY TOMKAT FANS) ASKING WHY NICOLE NEVER SPEND TIME WITH THEIR 2 ADOPTED CHILDREN, HERE TONS OF PICTURES NICOLE WITH BELLA, WHEN SETTING FOR AUSTRALIA MOVIE. THEY ARE SO HAPPY TOGETHER ALSO WITH KEITH URBAN.
    BTW NICOLE STILL LOOK GORGEOUS & STUNNING.

    this looks like DUST. no ffcking powder are you nuts?

  • Celia

    WTF!! That’s not even a malfunction…that’s just embarrassing.

  • yv

    Powdered donuts, maybe?

  • missy

    Jim, It’s sad that you have to post photos from over 2.5 years ago to prove that Nicole spends time with her kids.

    LOL at these pics. Her expressions and body language combined with the makeup make her look crazy.

  • watwat

    I can’t believe how incredibly stupid people are. The photographer Jim Spellman who took every single one of these photos has now made a lot of money with the brainless media running it like prized photos. Look at Getty images and you’ll find none of the other photographers photos of Nicole show any kind of white powder. All this bull about the make up artist touching up Nicole’s face to explain away why some photos shows the powder and others don’t , is also a load of rubbish. I was watching the live stream and at no point is Nicole’s face tampered with while she was on the red carpet.

    I wonder if the media knows they’ve been duped.

  • Lisa2

    I would think that someone would have told her before she walked the carpet. Where are her “handlers” that the stars usually walk with? I feel bad for her, they should be fired for letting her walk out that way.

  • taco

    oh god!!! I can’t belive you are sooo stupid!! You don’t know what to invent to attack her! That was just the glare of the flashes! how to explain she is perfectly normal in other pics?

    a pic YOU EVEN POSTED JUST JARED! poor lonely people. you scary me.

  • taco

    “I wonder if the media knows they’ve been duped”
    of course they knows but they don’t care because they prefer to sell a bad story.
    I wonder when people will leave her alone

  • mika_says_hi

    “get the look”.. bahahaha

  • Jim

    @ missy #18 – it doesnt matter that pict from how many years ago, BUT MY POINT IS SHE STILL HAS TIME FOR HER KIDS & NICOLE LOVE THEM IN HER WAY, but not so much media know about that it’s different if bella & connor go out with tommy girl alot of photographer around them, or should i say this is her deal with scientology. so pathetic.

  • fresh

    awww that’s embarassing.

  • fresh

    awww that’s embarassing.

  • http://dalexis.etsy.com dori

    thats just strange, and sort of funny if its real

  • Annie

    Did Cankle Cruise pay off the makeup artist??? Everyone knows how jealous she has to be, Nic’s a star and she’s a nobody gold digger.

  • pr person

    People! She ISN”T walking around with powder on her face. The photographer took LOUSY pictures and is passing them off like SHE walked the red carpet looking like that. Shame on HIM!

  • Zoe

    I too have to believe it is from the glare of the camera or some sort of camera malfunction. She would have someone there with her from her PR camp and if not I would find it hard to believe no one would discretely tell her. Come on. This picture is rubbish.

  • Erica

    According to a professional makeup artist who just tweeted about this, the problem is the makeup artist used a not flash friendly powder containing talc. There are pics of Nicole without a flash from this event and she looks perfectly fine as #21 Taco was kind enough to demonstrate. You would not have necessarily been able to see this with the naked eye. Probably a good idea to take test shots with a flash prior to your red carpet event to get an idea of how your makeup will show.

  • watwat

    Actually Taco is right. If you go to GetttyImages and view all the photos of Nicole, it becomes apparent that it is the glare from a spotlight. Most of Jim Spellmans photo come out with this glare due to where he was standing. Majority show no powder what so ever.

  • Dell

    One now has to ask – how much make up is too much makeup? Well, I guess this is how she gets her porcelain skin!

  • Catsup

    You all have been duped . Look at other sites it does not show Nicole Kidman with face power like here.
    I am not a NK fan. I like her but that’s about it.
    But just wondered why JJ’s is the only site to show these kinds of pics. kinda mean spirited isn’t it. Is this to pleas the people who don’t like her.
    There are more who like her then who do not. NK has millions of fans across the world.

    . I always thought this was the place of truth , from JJ at least.
    He is getting to be just as bad as the rest. You see that the more money you make, the more crooked you become. Might as well join the tabs JJ.

    This is absolutely ridiculous on JJ’s part.

  • CLINIQUA

    Despite the photo tampering, or whatever that is – Nicole looks the best I’ve ever seen her look. I think she’s laying off the botox because she’s preg, which she needs to do permanently.

  • taco

    JJ should cancel this discussion!!! That was the glare of the flashes!

  • Dell

    @Jim:
    So the last time she had time for her “other kid” was 2.5 years ago?

  • tree

    I have to ask – I’ve seen Kidman “shooshing” the paps or whoever while on the red carpet before. I think it was the CMAs and now here. Who does she think she is?

  • ck_always

    Someone is getting fired ..

  • L

    @Jim:
    Jim- you are making yourself sound foolish. What mother sees her kids every 3 years? It’s apparent she has next to no relationship with them.

  • Jim

    @ Dell #38 – YOU & ALL TOMKAT FANS LOOSED YOUR TIME JUST TO CRITICS ABOUT MAKE UP OR ABOUT HER TIME OF KIDS, IF YOU ARE IDIOT OR DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT I SAID, DOESNT MATTER IF SHE SPEND TIME WITH HER CHILDREN AND NO ONE PHOTOGRAGPHER TO TAKE THEIR PICT, NICOLE JUST DON’T CARE WHAT YOU BELIEVE. I’M DONE TO DISCUSS ABOUT THAT.
    SHE IS SO AMAZING & GRACEFUL LADY.

  • snowman

    I remember that visit. Nicole sent Bella to the salon for a day of beauty with her employees – not a nice mother/daughter trip, but with some assistant. Bella then came home with blue hair. Did she rebel a little bit there? I’d say so.

  • asdfjkl;

    maybe her makeup artist was mad at her that day??? Hilarious though.

  • Rouge

    Don’t you really belive a movie star like Nicole Kidman doesn’t look in her mirror before go out for a world premiere?!?! If something were wrong with make up she would know it immediately. You can’t be so stupid…
    Because her hair, dress were perfect, people want a reason to attack her. but this time you just gave a bad impression.

  • http://itsawanderlustfullife.blogspot.com/ Erin

    Awww, poor thing.

  • snowman

    @Rouge:

    Nope, sorry, that’s what her PR people are for; they give her the once over before she hits the carpet.

  • Jim

    Nicole is a phenomenal actress, beautiful and from an acting point she’s perfect for claudia, love her voice too when she sang “unusual” this is barbara streisand version.
    cant wait for her other movie (rabit hole & danish girl), must be great!

  • http://justjared.buzznet.com/2009/12/15/russell-crowe-robin-hood-trailer/ roadkill

    coke fiend?

  • Ha!

    @snowman:

    Exactly, snowman. Then her PR people didn’t see it either. It must not have been obvious to anyone without the flash on her face. Big f*cking deal. She still looks beautiful anyway.
