interesting… will probably be good. If I had my choice of actress to play Grace though, I’d pick Evan Rachel Wood

# 2

OMG OMG this is just awesome, she’s perfect for this role… She totally deserves another Oscar :D

# 3

Grace Kelly was absolutely stunning in her younger years. Nicole is an attractive woman but I don’t know about her for this role.

# 4

Yes, she’s absolutely the right choice. She’s an excellent actress, plus, she has a ressemblance to Grace Kelly. I think this will be a good one!

Hell to the no! First, Naomi Watts as Princess Diana, now this! She is a good actress, but not for this role! Hollywood is so effed up!

I think Charlize looks more like Grace Kelly. Especially in her British Vogue cover.

Amazing! Nicole is beautiful and talented. With make up she will be a doppleganger for Grace. As a fan of both actresses I am excited. Now if only a great director could hop on board.. Marty Scorsese perhaps?
2nd Oscar for Miss Kidman!

Grace Kelly wasn’t that beautiful. She looks exactly like Nicole without make up

january jones has a very strong resemblance to grace kelly, but she wouldn’t be god

its better than doing another Adam Sandler movie

@Gossipgirl:
Who else would you suggest as Princess Di?
It isnt all about looking Exactly like them. That is what make up is for. Naomi is an amazing actress and is talented which is why they hired her

While I honestly don’t really care for Nicole Kidman, she’s always reminded me of Grace Kelly, so I think she IS the right actress for this role.

I don’t mind NK but these biopics are lame. Michelle Williams in that Marilyn thing was lame lame lame. All those vapid ‘icons’ are boring boring boring. What did they ever do other than pose?

Lol I love it when lame people think they are more intelligent than people who devote their whole lives for film. My Week with Marylin was amazing, Michelle Williams nailed Marylin and even got an Oscar nomination ang won her GG. Let me guess, you are some ugly blonde wanna be?

Pick a woman who butchered her face, had her hair bleached and straightened continuously, had her freckles erased permanently, had an extreme facelift, had a (uneven) lips augmentation, had her forehead frozen, and god knows what more, to play Grace Kelly !!! An actress that has been notoriously ridiculed for all those things to portray the symbol of natural beauty, grace and elegance !
Hollywood spoils everything.

Im soooo sick of this flopped biopics..they can’t find something more original? a lack of ideas as usual …it’s the fashion i guess what’s next a biopic of Bardot, Lauren, Dietrich…so stupid oh and old botoxed double head Kidman looks nothing like her and is too old.

Perfect choice. Such grace and beauty.

Nicole too old to play Grace.
This role should only be for CHARLIZE.

Look at Charlize’s Vogue cover. Enough said. Kidman’s face looks scary now since she screwed it up with whatever she did to it.

Should be played by vendela.
Even tho she’s a model not an actress.
Too bad.
Looks just like Grace.
Google. Vendela.

@From Paris with Love

you should know that Grace Kelly’s children have been consulted every step of the way. do you honestly think that Nicole would have the part if Grace’s children did not approve of her and want her in the role? Grace was their mother so what they want is more important, in this case, than what you want.

@Kirsten: How old are you twelve ? posting a pic of Grace Kelly in her fourties in an awkward posture and saying she wasn’t that beautiful ? that’s what real women used to look like. Plus she had given up her career long ago at that time.
Now take a good look at her in her twenties and dare say she wasn’t beautiful. Maybe not your type but she was much more beautiful than this http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2010/08/23/article-1305332-0AD5BFE4000005DC-745_306x451.jpg

Nicole’s face just looks too frozen. Her lips are messed up, I have heard the term 3rd lip used for her.

I think this is perfect casting. Nicole has the same quiet grace that Grace Kelly did. Although I like Charlize, Nicole has fine features and so did Grace. Another great role for Nicole who, unfortunately for the haters, still has a booming career. (and a hot hubby)
