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

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

    Jennifer Says:

    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.

    Regina George Says:

    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!

    Kirsten Says:

    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

    Dave From Canada Says:

    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.

    Steam Says:

    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?

    Samantha Sophia Says:

    Not Grace!

    Chupa Says:

    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?

    From Paris with Love Says:

    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.

    Patti Says:

    Perfect choice. Such grace and beauty.

    Juliet Says:

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

    nahj Says:

    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.

    Amy Says:

    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.

    From Paris with Love Says:

    @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

    Opa Says:

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

    Just Barb Says:

    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)
