Nicole Kidman Opens Doors to Violence Prevention Center

Nicole Kidman (in Jil Sander) joins Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi — pictured below — at the groundbreaking ceremony for the Family Violence Prevention Fund’s New International Center on Friday (January 8) in San Francisco, Calif.

“We’ve been able to approach governments around the world and we’ve been able to say, we want you to acknowledge your laws, change your laws and to speak out strongly,” Nic said of the center that aims to end violence against women and children.

    Looks like somebody got some botox again recently

    ¿copiando a Angelina?

  • Hoof face!

    Wow, Kidman, just wow. You look, uh, awesome…god – i can’t even say it. I’d be lying if I said she looked awesome. She doesn’t okay, she just doesn’t. I find her quite scary actually, I dunno, something about her makes me want to run the opposite direction. She reminds me of one of those sweet grandmas, or you think they are sweet till you see how evil they REALLY are. I don’t know, that’s how she strikes me and that is that. I’ll probably have to watch some cartoons to rinse her face outta my brain, otherwise, nightmares here we come!

    Too much botox!! She needs to stop…surely she would have read articles/comments about her face and she would realise that she’s going too far… c’mon some one needs to tell her before it goes too far.

  • watwat

    Thank you JJ for posting these. It’s an important cause which doesn’t get talked about often. It is estimated approximately 70% of women and children have suffered some form of domestic abuse. I sometimes wonder whether these nasty poster are part of these statistics. You know what they say, ‘violence breeds violence’. I cannot imagine people who have love in their lives being so hateful.

  • On 1 hand u hate wrnkles on women but on the other hand you hate Botox on women. Choose a
    side.. Most white women/men are wrinkled by 33 . Deal with it. Your beloved Sandra bullock has a froZen head too.

  • lela

    she’s very nice!

  • f

    ok i never thought i’d say this, but she freaks me out now as much as her husband. that robotic look of death in the second picture is truly something frightening. something’s wrong with her. either she’s putting too much botox in her face, and has lost the ability to convey all human emotion, or that’s just what she’s like underneath it all…

  • toby

    # 1, # 4, # 8 you’re obviously the same odd kidma hater jelous because she’s married with your idol keith urban. please stop it.
    look at this woman, she goes to bed with keith urban not you. that’s over for you, OVER.
    nicole’s a great woman and a great actress and very beautiful and greaceful indeed. she helps people that need support she gives voice and dignity to all the women in the world considered like animals by society and husbands like in iran, north africa. domestic violence is a terrible terrible thing and thankyou nicole to give your important voice to this problem

  • seanna

    she is classy and beautiful

  • taco

    gosh haters, what’s wrong with you? can’t you just accept nicole is a beautiful woman with a happy life? get a life you are stupid!

    great woman you are nicole! you take care of the real problem of this world without asking anything. i love you, i saw nine last week and she was the best thing in the movie among with marion!!

  • andrew

    she looks beautiful and classy. one of the greatest actress of our time.

  • comment#3 is a psyco watch out

    @Hoof face!:
    what do you think to see a doctor? you are scary not nicole’s face

  • mimi

    Nicole, you have so much money. Why don’t you finance those centers and help that way, instead of asking governments to finance that- that is taxpayers money?

  • comment#3 is a psyco watch out

    @mimi:
    but she did it..hello?? why she was here then dumb? she financed the new center with pelosi and joe torre. i wonder if people use the mind sometimes.

  • homar

    @mimi:
    and what is your contribution to the cause? she finances new centeres all over the world (this december in kenya) and you? what do you do? absolutely nothing. sitting in front of a computer wrting hateful words it’s not exactly the best way to help women.

  • roy

    well done nicole!! violence against women has to end! immediately!

  • Costance

    I don’t care what people say about this woman, I think she looks great, wonderful, a very classy lady, elegant, the grace in person. beautiful inside and outside. always kind with everyone, polite, warm and funny. never heard a bad story about her and never a bad word cae out from her mouth. she’s at the top of my list of famous people I want to meet one day.

  • notbusy

    Nicole looks beautiful. She looks healthy and happy and her natural red hair looks great. You can see she takes great care of herself. Very classy lady.

  • Happy days

    Her “natural red hair”? It’s shrunk about 6″ compared to last week’s People Choice Awards!

  • Happy days

    OK she could have hacked it off – but that colour is from a bottle.

  • L.L.

    NOW YOU ALL GO TO CHURCH TODAY, K…

  • lexy

    She’s awesome. It’s so great to see a working actress with a baby and 2 other kids still find time to try and help those less fortunate – especially on such a widespread issue like domestic violence! It’s great that celebs like Kidman, Garner and Witherspoon use their celebrity status to bring attention to such important issues…as opposed to using these events to try and further their career or sell you some garbage like a clothing line!

  • Love Her

    Wish I could look as bad as her!!!. What is wrong with you haters? Jealous much? She is classy, talented, beautiful and works for good causes. I adore this woman.
    Pelosi on the other hand…..well, I’m too much of a lady to say what I think about that woman.

  • Tazina

    It’s the shallow and superficial people who make comments about the botox. Who cares? And you don’t know if she does contribute to this cause so shut your uninformed pie holes on that regard. Yes, you’re jealous but do you have to make it so obvious? Nicole is involved with a very worthwhile cause and that’s a good thing.

  • kizbit

    Why do American people feel the need to be so judgmental about the looks of other people, particularly celebrities? Why not focus on the good works many of them do with their celebrity, like Nicole. Just say “thank you” and do something for others in your own life and stop bashing people because they make more money than you do.

  • slambang

    Great cause, but her face scares the beejezus out of me.

    And L.L. – You are a nasty piece of work, using the “c word” on a board like this, then having the audacity to tell people to go to church! I really hope you get banned!

  • http://umyths.blogspot.com/ Urban Myths

    I guess it was ok for her bodyguards to beat up the paparazzi… they were MEN.

  • as it is

    Your beloved Sandra bullock has a froZen head too.

    So true.SB was also botoxed. Don’t worry soon they will start attacking Sandra Bullock also. She is just new but soon they will tired of her and throw nasty remarks at her. It is what happens when you get the internet together with sad people who don’t accomplish anything.
    .
    Thank goodness most stars ignore all this trash and keep working and giving back.
    .
    I hope Nicole saw her other kids while she was in CA.

  • TERI

    This is about domestic violence not how she looks for petes sakes. Keep speaking out Nicole!

  • Bob

    why not say her age??? You guys seems so occupied
    with other’s ages.
    Too old for your teenage blog? LOL

  • Bob

    not everyone has wrinkles at 33
    that is so racisct remark!!!

  • daisy

    Unbelievable. She is here suppoerting a great cause & all some people can talk abotu is her face. Try educating yourselves on the cause. You all do realize these are still pictures when listening to a serious subject she isn’t going to be all laughing & smiling. 42 year old women don’t always have visible wrinkles in pictures. I don’t & I am in my 40s.

    I don’t normally acknowldge Urban Myths but I see she is still playing the same tune almost 2 years later & you weren’t even there & don’t know the circumstances. You will only see what you wan tto see. Move on.

    GET BACK IN THE KITCHEN YOU CUNT!

  • fatemeh azhineh

    @seanna: you are right

  • eliott

    Great cause. Kudos to Kidman and Pelosi. I appreciate when celebrities like Kidman take advantage of the spotlight that is always shining on them (whether they like it or not) to highlight causes such as the Family Violence Prevention Fund.

  • fresh gardenias

    @L.L.:

  • a realist

    Women are violent too. So Nicole is a hypocrite. Violence against men and children is bad too.

  • denise

    The botox queen, should realize violence is bad no matter who does it. Is she giving women a free pass.

  • Blake Lively

    All celebrities do it.. make a appearance and talk but never do anything
    like help out the WOMEN AGAINST VIOLENCE.. CAN YOU PICTURE
    KATIE HOLMES DOING THIS .. SHE IS FAMOUS FOR HER C LIST
    MOVIES AND DAWSONS CREEK..JUST BECAUSE THEY WERE
    BOTH MARRIED TO TOM CRUISE THAT IS WHAT BROUGHT THEM
    BOTH TO FAME.. SO LETS SEE THIS SO CALLED BOTOX LIST

    KATE WINSLET, SHARON STONE , ETC.. BY THE WAY WHY NOT
    SEND ELIN THERE SINCE SHE HIT HER HUSBAND TIGER WOODS
    IN THE FACE WITH A GOLF CLUB HEHH!! RIGHT LAUGH AND MAKE
    VIDEOS ABOUT IT HOW SHE BEAT HIM.. AND WHO FUNNY THE WHOLE THING IS.. WHAT IF THEY DID A VIDEO ON RIHANNA GETTING A BEATING FROM CHRIS BROWN AND PLAYED THAT
    AND HAD A LAUGH ABOUT IT…FANTASTIC…

  • @infamously cool

    She is not box office poison. People just like to blame her. With Nine, only four of her movies haven’t made money. She is huge overseas. And you can hardly blame Nine on her as there were 8 other Oscar winning/nominated stars in it. I love the way people like you blame her for everything. Usually it is the male star that carries the movie, but no one blames them. Go to BoxOfficeMojo.com and look her movies up. She has does really well in the overseas markets. Unfortunately for whatever reason people like you feel the need to denigrate her accomplishments. Probably because your own life is so bad.

  • dabu

    @a realist and denise

    Oh give it a break.

    She is an ambassador for the UN for women and children and the stopping of violence against them. This is her cause.

    What is your cause? Stopping violence against men? Well then good. Go for it. Why take her apart because she has the guts and courage to stand for children who cannot stand for themselves? And for women?

  • danielle

    @infamous

    You cannot see the injections. And why pick on Nicole’s lips? Pelosi’s look much worse as does Lohans, Ryans, and a host of other stars who have over filled.

    You just hate Nicole so you have to nitpick eveything she does.

  • http://justjared deke

    #27 – ditto.

  • btw

    Some ppl are really ignorant. She’s not saying that only women are victims. It’s called, “Family Violence Prevention Fund.” It’s just the Just Jared’s interpretation. Plus, there are more victims who are women than men.
