Nicole Kidman & Zac Efron: 'Paperboy' Cannes Premiere!

Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron arrive at The Paperboy premiere during the 2012 Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (May 23) at Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France.

Co-stars Matthew McConaughey, John Cusack, Macy Gray, David Oyelowo, as well as the film’s director, Lee Daniels, also walked the red carpet after attending a photo call earlier in the day.

“I had the most lovely time in the world [working with Nicole]. I was ecstatic the day I found out she was playing the part,” Zac told reporters.

“I have been in love with her for a long time, since Moulin Rouge,” he added. “It was the best opportunity in the world for me and I loved every moment.”

FYI: Nicole wore a dress and clutch both by Lanvin, Casadei heels and vintage Cartier jewels. Zac suited up in Dolce&Gabbana.

    Nicole is gorgeous, i cant take my eyes out of her

    this excerpt is from the cannes report:

    Above all, “The Paperboy” is boosted by performers who sink their teeth into snappily written roles. Kidman is the showstopper here. With a bad fake tan, an even worse blonde wig, garishly skimpy outfits, and an accent that samples every twang from Southern-fried to Australian outback, the actress gives a hungry, hilarious turn. It’s her loosest, least fussy work in years. The 24-year-old Efron, as the young man who loves her, finally gets the chance to prove that he is more than a pair of pretty blue eyes and a set of rock-hard abs; he rises to the occasion, digging up a note-perfect performance, by turns teasing, heartfelt, and heartbroken. His sexy, offbeat chemistry with Kidman is a (guilty) pleasure to behold.

  • Bet


    You got that right! I love the dress!

    WTG Nicole show em how it is suppose to be!

  • Sue

    @The Real Emma:
    Not sure, but it could have something to do with the Scotland movie she is presently filming?

  • Sue


    If you follow Kidman’s career, you gotta know she is FEARLESS and that is what sets apart the good , from the great!

    I love that about her.

  • samsam

    @LaCroix: i know this is a silly question but how in the hell did you turn the font into bold

  • lisa

    Nicole looks wonderful from hair to makeup and dress she hit the mark.

  • Touche

    Nicole is absolute perfection here.

  • SHA

    F.U.C.K the movie was booed in canne.i am french and we watch reports live on tv the audience didn’t like it,and they are saying that zac was a bad casting for this part. i am so pissed right now i was hoping it’s zac big break role.

  • Loverslastforever

  • gritner


  • Kim

  • amelia25

    Beautiful zac!

  • Kel

    WOW, Keith your wife is gorgeous.

  • no

    Wow Nicole overshadows Zac!! Zac should avoid posing next to her…

  • andres

    omg, amazing,, she looks so good.

  • A. OK

    Zac you look great at, I thear Zac is getting very good reviews, and the different critics give it different reviews somwe hate it others love it.

  • Loan

    Nicole et Zac étaient très élégants pour la montée des marches de Cannes. I’m French

  • lol

    @Loan: We know! Not everyone speaks french.

  • AARA


  • Bite me

    Audience reaction to the film “BOOOOOOO” and according to one of several headlines “one big disastorus flop” ouch.

  • http://Yahoo JoBeth

    Nicole looks lovely. It’s cute how Zac seems so taken with her. However, he has a lot of competition in Cannes. There are a couple of serious old male friends in attendance too. One has had quite a few pictures with his wife, and the other has just shown up who seems to be there to show off only. Nicole has quite a following; lucky she seems to have a very grounded and understanding husband. But then, he has a lot of love-sick females in his past also.

  • mae

    @Bite me:
    who told you that? vanessa? the movie had two standing ovations. one at 13:00 pm and one at 19:30 pm. yes, the movie’s reviews aren’t good as many hoped but cannes always looks for a scandal movie. paperboy was the aunt sally

  • Dieter

    SHE HAS A GORGEOUS ASS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Rio

    WOW nice to have back the goodes looking Nicole :D

  • melissa

    Nic is so beautiful!

  • brian

    Absolutely gorgeous.

  • steph

    i’m french and everyone know here, what Cannes is a difficult festival!
    if the paperboy arouses critics and reactions, it’s good for the movie
    I think It ‘s more interesting for a movie to arouse feelings, to disturb, to push aside ideas….
    and zac is not a “baby” anymore, if he want to be respect as an actor, he as to take risks and to go out of his “confort zone”, it’s his job…and it’s brave
    and who care of the rest…

  • Fran

    Its not the actors in Cannes who get hurt by it, It is the Director!

    feel bad about that.

  • steph

    it’s “real people” who make the success of a film, not some critics who want to be intellectual or seem to be like that!

  • Nic

    Nicole is no doubt the Queen of Cinema.

  • thetis


    First of all leave Vanessa out of this I’m sure she has no interest in Zac’s films one way or the other. And sorry but I also heard it was booed but worse the Buyers didnt like it.

  • Anais

    All of Nicole’s outfits are stunning. Beautiful and graceful woman (besides talented).

  • TC

    Nicole looks gorgeous. I hate to admit this but Zac is being a good boy. Maybe he really is on love with Lily Collins and she tamed his playboy ways.

  • tina

    Gosh Just Jared could have picked a worse picture of Zac? I tend to agree with TC he does seem not as touchy and flirty with Nicole, but then again she might whack him if he tried. You might have something about him being a good BF. Maybe Lily is the one.

  • Louise

    Breathtaking! A few pictures of Keith and Nicole would have been lovely.

  • see

    what a gäy face he pulls off

  • kami


    nicole’s husband is there. that’s why zac not touchy feely. he wouldn’t dare. lol

  • holly


    Oh My a picture of him would be great ! Lucky Nicole!
