    “Ticket to ride, white line highway
    Tell all your friends, they can go my way
    Pay your toll, sell your soul
    Pound for pound costs more than gold
    The longer you stay, the more you pay
    My white lines go a long way
    Either up your nose or through your vein
    With nothin to gain except killin’ your brain”

  • lingling

    its more likely that her powder has talc so in a flash photo it shows up like that

  • Maria

    @Lea: that’s the first thing i thought!!! an yeah i bet someone is getting fired xD

    Lmao wth

  • AutumnM

    And Nicole fans, lighten up already! Geesh, I swear Nicole Kidman fans are one of the worst and most manic fanbases on this site. You can’t say anything about her without them getting so defensive. I think only us JP fans are worse lol. No one’s trashing Nicole tho so relax, it’s her makeup artist who was at fault here but you have to admit this is a funny and also kinda embarassing picture. Damn, Nic shoulda looked in the mirror before she walked the red carpet.

  • Jim

    Nicole “Unusual Way” Nine soundtrack full song, great actress talented with awesome voice.

  • Jerry

    I think she is shushing someone who asked her about scientology…lol.., I’m sure if she spoke about the insane nut job she was married to, he would take even MORE control over the kids and she would never see them again. If she actually spoke about sci-fi crazy, she may just disappear…..or worse, her kids could be abused. She is nothing but a class act trying to protect her kids. To those who think that is so insane> Just google scientology kills and read the stories.

  • Celebwatcher

    It looks like there’s light on her face and not powder.

    It looks like she was making out with Lindsay Lohan.

  • notbusy

    Some photoshopping going on here to sell a fake story. Haters are showing their jealously of Nicole by saying how happy they are to see her with messy makeup. These photos are clearly doctored.

  • The Truth

    She never spends time with or cares to see her kids – bella & conner.She only cares about her career. If you look there are never any recent photos of them in the past few years.
    I know I worked for that witch for 10 yrs.

  • Mary

    Too cute :)

  • Jen

    People are so clueless. It is the flash. No other pictures taken have that problem. Why are people so quick to believe everything the media puts out there? Well, experts say more than 85% of the population is stupid. Maybe that is true.

    #56 – what do you mean to admit & embarassing, all is about glare of camera, no need to admit or embarassing.
    #62 – get a iife.

  • louisa

    This reminds me of the Scarface scene when Al puts his face in a mountain of cocaine.

  • The Truth

    #65. If you know her – and I do. She is flipping out about those photos.
    She spends hours picking out the perfect dress and hours with hair and makeup. It is the most important thing to her is to look good. Heads will ROLL.

  • mary

    her PR didn’t see either!? but WTF is happening in that your box you have the courage to call brain?! she has the best make up artists in hollywood and she PAYS HER PR to make everything perfect for her. she’s not lindsay lohan. nicole works with the best people in the business. people should stop hate her because she’s too beautiful and talented and accpet the fact she’s a great iconic actress. life will be easier for you then

  • joy

    It is the glare of the lights hitting her wrong. . ALL of the other closeups are perfectly normal. Sad that this is blown out of proportion. OF COURSE she would NOT walk the red carpet with this kind of makeup mistake. There would have been a million people around her telling her something if they had seen this before she got to the red carpet. PLEASE. She would NEVER go out with anything that obvious wrong.

    #67 – you’re just a loser, shut up.

  • Siouxsie Q

    Nicole — Go back to Catherine Olim. She would have never allowed this!

  • cocaine

    No-one told her because they didn’t know she had gone to the bathroom to snort it and then rubbed it over her face.

  • Five

    #18 – She is looking fine, maybe you are insane.
    #41 – You don’t know about her life, don’t ever judge her, you are stupid

  • Alison

    Why on earth didn’t someone tell her???? I bet someone will be getting into a lot of trouble for that.

  • The Truth

    Five – Your just a PR puppet paid to defend NK aka May Poppins.
    Everyone in the biz knows she is the biggest ball buster of them all!

  • irene

    Her make up can be corrected, and she’s a great actress. Worse it would be to be a wanna-be and to have huge tree trunk legs and cankle tighs

  • youallstink

    Maybe she had an accident and didn’t have time to notice? who cares she can wipe that thing and still look gorgeous. To the ugly jealous bitches who are bashing her…too bad you can’t wipe your ugliness off!

  • Five

    #75 – what are you talking about, i’m not her PR, loser.
    Don’t ever believe gossip, if you heard from somebody that she is the biggest ball buster, you are stupid.

  • irene

    @The Truth:
    and you are a paid poster too? So you worked with her for ten years?OOHH the years she was married to the tiny man? Now we know how valid your opinion is. Yeah right.

  • cathy

    Nicole looks stunning as ever,class, elegant and sophistication. No need to laugh at her, just proves she is a normal female.

  • The Truth

    Ask anything – I know it all

  • cathy

    @ irene – i had the same opinion with you, i think “The Truth” is paid by scientology tomy girl.

  • The Truth

    #82 – I never got involved into scientology There a dangerous org. I worked for tc & nk for many years like alot of people did. I know alot about them and some day it will be in a book.

  • cathy

    I love her, she has so beautiful skin, such aristocracy.

  • Lauren Lipps

    It was probably in the cold and didn’t dry too much

    #81 – we don’t need to ask you, Nicole Kidman is amazing & greatest actress in hollywood, not like three trunk katie holmes the worst actress ever.

  • Queen of Sheba

    It’s funny how someone can believe that Nicole Kidman is the greatest actress in Hollywood while we have Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore, Naomi Watts, who are far more superior than Kidman in every way.

  • my leg

    LOL, how embarrassing.

  • snowman

    It is very creepy how Kidman’s fans defend her no matter how bad she appears. Read the first page of posts on here. Her fans claimed the pictures were fake, and anyone who was laughing at her was stupid. Then someone posted that the makeup artist said those were actual pictures and were a result of a flash/no flash/powder. This woman has flaws, and you people treat her like a God. Get help already! It is not healthy to hold someone so high up on a pedestal. Take Tiger Woods for example! And can you find another word than “classy” to describe her. Expand your personal dictionary. Look up a new word each day.

  • Josh

    Surely its coke?!

  • AutumnM


    Thank u! I’m glad someone else see’s how crazy, nasty and rude Kidman’s fans are. People aren’t even saying anything that bad but of course her fans start yelling at everyone who doesn’t worship their Queen Nicole. It’s ridiculous. I mean you don’t have to defend your fave star over EVERYTHING. If this was Angelina who looked like this, I would laugh too. I mean I love her, but no one is perfect and it’s so stupid the way Nicole’s fans carry on. They always talk about TomKat fans but they are 1000x worse!

    Get a sense of humor guys.

  • CoGirl

    My God, you Kidman fans need some serious help. You really need to get a LIFE, instead of trashing people who don’t love or idolize some Hollywierd actress, and live in the fantasy world you do. Do you know how mentally unstable you sound???

  • df

    it’s embrrassing! why nobody told her..? poor nicole

  • snowman

    You can go on any of the other posts on here and people can freely bash any celebrity for any reason, but don’t you even think of insulting Nicole Kidman. Sick. Just sick.

  • alexkziel

    Poor Nicole lol

  • xxx

    Oh my god love when celebrities stuff up like this!! woo woo.

  • Maisy

    OH MY GOD . . . I can’t believe it. She’s HUMAN! :O

    Honestly people, whether or not this was photoshopped, we ALL have crazy mishaps. The only thing with Nicole is that people are there to capture hers. This as news is a really sad indication of the state of our society.

    I can’t wait to see this movie. What an amazing cast!

  • Leah

    its powder… get over it.
    her tits aren’t showing. relax.

  • luckylady

    This is so dumb. The white “powder” or whatever it is isn’t on any of the other photos taken that night. Maybe at some point she hugged someone and their powder rubbed off or it is just a creation from the flash photo. Look around the net, there are many many photos of Nicole from that event without any white powder on her face. Find something else to go crazy over.
