@Rachel; Charlize just adopted a baby so she also has a small child. Naomi Watts has kids. Who cares? What century are you from? A woman can work and still be a mother. Duh.

Great choice. Nicole will be perfect.

@Jen:

Yes, they can work and be a mother. Question is – how GOOD of a mother can they be when they aren’t there? I just don’t understand why any woman has children just to let someone else raise them.

@Rachel:

Nicely, I would like to say, that is a slap in the face to many women who are both. Many on this site right now!

If you have neither, then do not judge those of us who do! That was a really mean thing to say.

where are all these theron fans come from? Theron wasn’t even attached to this! If so, she was just one of the many possible choices…I can’t understand the hate and criticism against Nicole, who is the best choice to play an iconic role like Grace kelly.

@noble

I haven’t seen all these “hateful comments” you are referring to. No one is hating on her, we are saying she doesn’t fit the part. Period. At least not looks wise. I am open to seeing how she ACTS the part. She is a good enough actress.

It only an illusion , to make it seem that way ,
Your question makes that very obiviousthat not everyone is fooled. . Its right on the money.

@noble: Just a guess but because Jared put Grace Kelly’s name in the title and the story it got people’s attention that don’t really care about Nicole Kidman in the first place. Charlize has her fans and that’s fine but I don’t think she has the elegance to pull it off. Not knocking her acting, its just sometimes a person’s real attributes can affect a role and either you have it or you don’t. Charlize is beautiful but comes off too haughty to play Grace Kelly in my opinion.

Charlize looks more like Grace Kelly for sure, but not might have the right attitude… Nicole is a great actress so I’m sure she will do great.

@Devon

Charlize is known worldwide for being elegant and sophisticated, and as for haughty, I guess that is your perception based on perhaps photos? I have never seen her act haughty, and even if she DID that is totally irrelevant to whether or not she can pull off Grace Kelly

@Devon: And Nicole is too boring and bland to pull off Grace who was charming and radiant. Charlize has natural charm and she manages to be elegant and beautiful and sultry at once. People are pointing out Charlize as the better choice because look at the top of the page and you will see Charlize on the cover of Vogue radiating Grace Kelly more than Kidman with her botched lips and freaky vampire face could ever hope.

Yeah !! Love Nicole . The Best Choice by far .

Nicole Kidman can do this in her sleep, she will kill it…

Not sure why people thumbed down my comment, it was only an opinion and Evan Rachel wood does look just like a young Grace Kelly.

She has a gorgeus ass !!!

@Kidman Kelly: These projects are small independent, artsy, movies that takes only days to make. The fact that she is able to balance career and home life is testament she is taking care of her family just like millions of working moms out there. See pics of her taking/picking up daughter from school, taking little one to Gymboree, taking them to kids party, supporting hubby at award shows, show in Australia and now to Nashville for his concert. Working mothers should be applauded not judged.

Nicole can do this with her eyes closed, she’s classy and looks younger even when she has 44. she is an icon and one of the best!

First let me say I am a fan of NK. She is a very talented actress. But I am old enough to remember Grace Kelly when she was alive and was even a bigger fan of hers. In my opinion NK is not right for this role. NK has too much For lack of a better word sass to her. It comes through in every part she plays. Grace was elegance and royal like even before Ranier. She was princess like before she was one. Not like Princess Di. Even softer. I have never seen NK pull off such a soft character. JMO

No way she’s too old for the part. Charlize would be good or a no name who looks like January Jones.

actually the entire bio and inner workings of Grace Kelly from aristocratic Kelly’s of Philadelphia, to landing in Hollywood to how she landed a Prince would be a good biopic. Hey it’s a real story unlike those other “Princess” movies like The Princess Diaries or Enchanted, etc…and that era was a very glam era but not Nicole though.

@Grace deserves better

what you want does not matter and never will. all that matters is that Grace Kelly’s children want Nicole in the role. the opinion of Grace’s children will always be more important in this case than yours will ever be. deal with it.

Rachel,

a brain dead squirrel on life support has more intelligence than you have. When Charlize goes to work on a film she will take her baby with you. what part don’t you understand.

2nd oscar! I just hope she seriously lets her lips go back normal. :( I love her but she has got to stop with the injections!

I did a morph of grace and Scarlett Johannson and they look identical!!

There will prpobably be another production to counter this one like maybe from HBO

@just Barb: Your comment was beautifully said, Nicole perfect for the part. I also really agree with you on her hubby Keith Urban. Wow !!!
