Nobody has to worry about the Urban children being well taken care of. Keith and/or Nic are always with them and they are all seen a lot around here and they’re a gorgeous family. They’re back home now in Tennessee.

Grace and Charlize are making EXACTLY the same expressions here!

crap! The link no longer leads to the photo. Anyway, it was from the Dior commercial. It has the moment Grace turns her face to reveal herself, along with the moment Charlize turns to gaze at Marilyn Monroe. They looked EXACTLY alike!

@Ugonna Wosu:

I think Theron could make a good Monroe, but I feel Kidman would make a better Kelly. Thanks for the link; great ad!

Ugonna Wosu @ 04/08/2012 at 10:46 am


understood, but for me, this ad proved once and for all that Theron looks NOTHING like Marilyn, nor does she have the same innocent yet trashy vibe. She’s a little more classy in feel, like Grace Kelly. That said, she doesn’t look that much like Grace, except for the photo, but still comes closer than Nicole ever will.

I think Rosamund Pike would play the better role as the late princess. She is a great actress and resembles Princess Grace so much. Hope the production team would cast her as well before they make their decision.

@Ugonna Wosu:

So many people have tried to pose as Marilyn, but they never quite capture that ‘innocent’ vibe that you speak of. It is easy to do the hair and lips, but they just always miss the mark. I liked Madonna’s ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ vid, but again, she doesn’t have that innocent thing going. I guess that is what made Marilyn so great; that combination she had going. Kidman also did some great shots channeling Marilyn a few years back in Australia; she came close; but also missing that crucial element. ito biopics, I prefer documentaries ultimately, using real footage and pics; I always feel cheated with the pretend.

@Gossipgirl: So Basically your just against Australians


Naomi Watts is British.

Jen is right. Naomi Watts is British. Her family moved to Australia when she was 14. Her grandmother is Australian. She and Nicole were met at the same high school and became life long mates. She has said she considers herself British although she calls Australia her home.

Dianna Agron is another good choice.

Really? She would have been good maybe 10 years ago. This biography is set at the time when Grace when was in her early 30′s. How is Nicole right for this part? She is 10 years older and much taller than Kelly was. Plus, her botox is so obvious and it is hard to watch her act anymore.

Nicole has always reminded me of Grace Kelly. They’ve got a similar regalness about them. I think this is a brilliant casting choice. I’m surprised it hasn’t happened sooner.

She’s SO perfect for this! I’ve been idolizing Nicole since I was a little girl watching Batman Forever. No one else is so perfectly girly, graceful and sexy all wrapped into one! I can’t wait to see this!

While I am still iffy about how this film will be produced the one thing I can say I support is their casting choice with Nicole.

moremusings @ 04/10/2012 at 5:10 pm

Looove Nicole– she’s going to be awesome in this.

peaceonearth @ 04/10/2012 at 5:37 pm

This sounds like a perfect fit for Nicole. Grace Kelly was a class act and so is she.

JessicaMay @ 04/10/2012 at 6:24 pm

Nicole is great at taking on a variety of different characters, I haven’t seen in her in a film for awhile like THIS and I think she’ll be wonderful.

HollaAtYaMama @ 04/10/2012 at 7:43 pm

Hollaaaa! Nicole baby girl I hope you say yes and make this happen. I mean it’s Grace Kelly!

Nicole looks just like her during the years they are highlighting!

Look at that cover where Charlize tries to emulate Grace Kelly! Lol
Coincidence? I think not. All blonde actresses in Hollywood must have fought for this role. I bet even Angelina Jolie sent in pics of herself with a blonde wig and blue contacts on. Lol

Nicole Kidman beat these women because she is the best person for the part. Watch the film The Others, just as the director of this Grace Kelly film probably did. THERE you can speak of uncanny physical resemblance and above all a similar aura and feminine charisma.

Former models like Charlize do not understand that a one-dimensional photo does not convey the aura and charisma of a person. Charlize is an entirely different type, modern, tougher and less feminine on screen. A good director senses that immediately.

If we go by one-dimensional photographs, this one of Nicole has the kind of softness and grace and femininity that is almost unique for Nicole Kidman. Most other actresses have a kind of roughness to them that makes them more ordinary and modern, a kind of subtle vulgarity that makes it all too obvious what era they stem from.

Here you can really speak of a Grace Kelly lookalike. Brilliant! Nicole is amazingly similar in style and charisma and will make a wonderful Grace Kelly interpretation.
