Nicole Kidman & Zac Efron: 'Paperboy' Photo Call!

Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron are ready for their close ups at The Paperboy photo call during the 2012 Cannes Film Festival held at Palais des Festivals on Thursday (May 24) in Cannes, France.

The two stars of the flick were joined by their fellow cast mates Matthew McConaughey, John Cusack, and director Lee Daniels. Singer Macy Gray was also in attendance!

“I had seen Precious and I thought it was amazing and I wanted to work with him,” Nicole told the AFP about wanting to work with Lee. She added that she was looking for “something raw and more dangerous” when the script came along.

FYI: Nicole is wearing a Berardi dress, Manolo Blahnik shoes, a vintage Omega watch, and her own earrings and hair clip!

looks better @ 05/24/2012 at 9:05 am

wow zac taking a style page from the bomer book, he should do it more often

@no: Nicole is very tall and Zac is actually very… small !!??

@Elena: You can start to call someone talentless when you are better than this person and doubt that you are better than Zac. Why aren’t you on the big screen? No chance in Hollywood? From 10,000 people who try to become an actor/actress in Hollywood only 1 or max. 2 of them are good enough for it. Warner and Universal haven earned a lot of money with him. And Warner wouldn’t have signed the contract with Zac’s production company, if they would have the feeling that it was a bad idea. He’s working hard and he’s doing everything to get better. He doesn’t step back when it comes to problems and risks, no he takes them and solves them. He’s not afraid to step out of the comfortable zone. People who want to be successful have to do that every single day. The ones who are afraid of doing that aren’t interesting for anybody.

The Hollywood Reporter review said that Zac has done a good job :)
Nice to hear that he’s being appreciated for his role in film going by the early reviews!

Not that it’s a bad thing, but I never realized how short Zac was! I mean Nicole is pretty much towering over him! Does anybody have any idea how tall he is?

Movie will kick ass. The cast is perfect.. I want Nicole‘s dress.

And @Marina: I couldn‘t agree more. Bravo. Your comment is probably one of my favorite on Zac‘s posts.

Zac looks weird next to tall women, he will never be the height of a leading man.

@Shauna: last I checked he‘s 5‘ 10“

lol that ‘little shrimp’.


Zac is 5’7″ but he wears lifts with his dress shoes which makes him appear taller. but it’s not working..

Wow, making jokes on someone who is short. Geez!
I read that Zac is 5’9 or 5’10…
Nicole is very tall, she towers over almost all her co-stars.


THis post would make more sense it if was factual. First of all lot of his appeal is physical and least lets be honest about that – he has yet to prove he can carry a movie – Universal lost a fortune of CSC, New Years Eve was a flop (though I give no blame for that it was everybody) , and Lorax was a cartoon. He was not the star of Hairspray and in HSM both Corbin and Lucas proved equally talented if not more but one was black (less opportunities offered) and the other wasn’t nearly as handsome (less female audience attention).

That’s not a criticism just a fact.

As for his talent that is subjective and that decision is in the hand of critics and the audience and not all will agree.

@Shauna & Lana
Zac is 5’7 (170cm) and Nicole is 5’10.5 (179cm).

Bunnylover @ 05/24/2012 at 10:19 am

@Shauna: 5ft10inches not that short and as I now have pictures of him and me! he is a lot taller than me! even when I have a hat on!! @Maricel: he is not that short and remember she is wearing heels!!

@Maricel: What? No freaking way I am taller then Zac Lol ..

Could you imagine being a woman and being a giant over every male co-star in a movie? Is she a guy?

She’s beautiful

Wow@thetis, thats one biased view you have. He is growing as an actor a lot of people will acknowledge that, and as for his past movies you are actually calling him out on HSM? Yes CSC flopped, but guess what universal still offer him roles, so powers that be believe in him, your opinion is not his reality. And cartoons flop too, so the success of the lorax is his success too, and NYE is not a flop just didnt perform to expectations. Get lost hater.

She does look gigantic


Uh. Tom Cruise Jendonto? I don’t care for him, but he is one of the biggest movie stars/leading man ever. 5’7″. Johnny Depp–5″9″. Zac is suppose to be 5’8″ according to Celebrity Heights site. Marlon Brando before he gained weight and turned into a slug was a huge s-ex symbol.- 5’9″. Same goes for Al Pacino in his day–5’6″, Sean Penn-5’8″, Robert De Niro-5’9″, FRANK SINATRA-the epitome of leading man in his time and beyond–5’7.5″, Dustin Hoffman-5’5″, Humphrey Bogart-5’8″.

All these guys have been leading men, s-ex symbols, and have had women chasing them down.

You must be a very shallow person to equate height to talent and appeal as a leading man.

Wow Zac is my height 5′ 7”!!!

Zac is so handsome!!

Zac is handsome in a very boyish way but standing next to Kiddman really showcases how diminutive he actually is.

@FrG: yes, that’s what I mean

@Lola Her name is Lola, she was a showgirl
But that was 30 years ago, when they used to have a show
Now it’s a disco, but not for Lola
Still in the dress she used to wear, faded feathers in her hair
She sits there so refined, and drinks herself half-blind
She lost her youth and she lost her Tony
Now she’s lost her mind!

great-actor @ 05/24/2012 at 12:02 pm

Like everybody else who takes their chosen carreer seriously, Zac Efron is working hard and he gets my respect. He’s young and one of the serious actors who love what they do and is focused to do it well. Good luck Zac. May the force be always with you.

@Lola – Yeahhh, she’s a guy. Cause only guys are tall. Dumba$$.

Geez, since when does height mean anything? Peter Dinkluge is pretty d@mn hot in Game of Thrones. Uma Thurman, Sigourney Weaver, Brooke Shields – all 6 feet tall. Michael J Fox -5’4. Even the Fonz was only 5’6. Seriously, if you think you’re coming up with a great insult to either Zac or Nicole, you need to try harder.

Beautiful Zac!


i have respect for ones who cares about works not looks!
seriously if one person thinks “being tall” is a factor to get succeed then its better go and show him\hersellf to a psychologist.

succeeding is in “acquisition”.

Nicole looks absolutely stunning. So beautiful, talented, and loving. But, why does she wear four inch heels when she is 5″11″. No one can walk gracefully in shoes that high…………….. not even Nicole Kidman. Regardless of my negative comments, she is still regal.

I loved the book “Paris Trout” (by Pete Dexter) and the movie. Also loved the book “The Paper Boy” so I’m sure I’ll love this movie, too. Anything by Dexter is odd, dark, disturbing, quirky and very southern.

Nicole has WOWED Cannes! WooHoo

Ain’t life grand!

KellyInNash @ 05/25/2012 at 2:02 am

@Louise: Why shouldn’t she wear whatever shoes she wants to wear? Who cares how tall it makes her? MANY MANY people can walk gracefully in 4 inch heels. She’s an elegant lady and has had plenty of practice. The notion that a tall person shouldn’t do something to make them look taller is absurd. I suppose a short person shouldn’t wear flats in your world.

The movie has created a lot off buzz! And everyone is saying that the cast has done a great job!

WICKED WENCH @ 05/25/2012 at 6:35 am

What a beautiful, sexy, talented man Zac is. He is a favorite of the critics even if the movie itself is not.

The most beautiful and elegant actresses in the world

Even though Nicole is my favorite actress, I think it is ridiculous that she has to wear three inch heels,( her legs are so long, she doesn’t need them) sometimes I think she should think about the people she is standing next to, including her gorgeous husband Keith Urban. Keith is 5’10 and I read that is what Zacs’ height is also which is an average height for a man.
