Good choice Nicole, Colin Firth is awesome!

If Colin Firth cares about his career, he should immediately stop taking all calls from Kidman and go into hiding.

@rachel @:$ and all your other poster names….

Colin was upset he didn’t get to work with Nicole on Stoker. He invited her to take Rachel Weisz’s place in Railway Man. He complimented Nicole on their work together. You are just another misinformed hateful dummy with a computer. Why Hollywood and the true talents of the industry won’t take your worthless advice is a true mystery…..NOT!

I hope Colin considers Sleep because he would be cast against type, if you’ve read the novel.

‘Skeptics are stupid’ aka ‘Orwell’ …This could be the perfect role for Kidman because, in regard to the truth, her memory frequently suffers from selective amnesia. In fact, this could be an Oscar winning performance!!

‘Before I Go To Sleep’ … I really must try and remember my web of lies so I stop getting so confused …

… “It’s hard to remember a time when Kidman had a hit. Probably 2001′s “The Others,” a thriller that brought in $96 million on a $17 million budget. She’s been living off the residual good will for a long, long time. Moreover, when a Kidman movie misses, it bellyflops. “Australia,” “Nine” and “The Golden Compass” weren’t just flops, they were epic bombs. The latter two nearly took their studios down with them” …

Success is not measured in money. Nicole Kidman is an artist and chooses films that are interesting to her regardless whether they are box office smashes. Perhaps you’re not aware of how many small films are made simply because they are well written. Very few films are box office smashes these days unless they are franchise films. Look at any actor or actress on IMDB and everyone makes films nobody has heard of. Nicole is an icon and will always be a Hollywood great.

Kidman is a mediocre talent. Always has been. She cunningly chooses from a broad range of film genres, to give the illusion there is diversity and skill, but in fact it’s mostly just kidman playing kidman.

@TC: Yeah, she’s a mediocre talent. That’s why she has an Oscar (and three nominations), three Golden Globes (and eight nominations), a BAFTA and countless other awards. That’s why she has worked with directors like Lars Von Trier, Gus Van Sant, Jane Campion, Stanley Kubrick, Baz Luhrmann, Alejandro Amenabar, Anthony Minghella, John Cameron Mitchell or Chan wook Park among others. You obviously don’t know anything about her career and you obviously don’t watch her films. The only reason you’re here insulting her in because she married your precious fantasy Keith Urban. You’re pathetic, hiding under different names to spew your hatred. How many names do you have by now? “TC”, “..”, “JR”, “Bob”, “rachel”, “an opinion”, “:$”, “Not Buying it in Nashville”, “Asha”, “kelly”, “Meena”, “JJ”, “R U sure”, “Grandma”, “it is sad”…

Boring.

@Helen: “Success is not measured in money. Nicole Kidman is an artist and chooses films that are interesting….”
Yeah, well it matters to production companies. (go figure >_<)
To continue to get offers (non-alternative films) you have to be 'marketable" (sucks – but that's the truth).
NK knows/understands this and that maybe why she looks scary-faced (too much botox/fillers?) – bad decision.
Whatever she has done, it looks weird and reflects in he performance (screen presence) — at least speaking as a person who has seen her films. (last one – Golden Compass)
Maybe she'll only do artsy movies and will continue to have a successful career, but speaking as a movie goer too much work is a major turn off.

@ally: Not her hair. She has very little that is her own. Just extensions.

@..:

Better check your facts honey. First Nicole specializes in indies like Rabbit Hole. But Golden Compass cost $180 million to make and made about $400 million with domestic, international and DVD sales/rentals. Australia cost $130 mil to make and with DVD sales/rentals etc. made over $250 million. Furthermore critics thought Kidman gave a good performance and directed the blame for the flop on Baz Lurhman the director. And yes Nine was a flop, but why blame Kidman? It had a cats of stellar actresses and actors. Kidman’s part was minor. Aniston’s Just Go With It made a ton of money. All you have to do is fact check before you mouth off. But obviously that is too much work for you. And no the studios didn’t almost go down the drain with Golden Compass and Australia.

@ Toria and Orwell: Well said !!! I think this person either thinks she has a chance with Keith Urban or is a loyal Scientologist. Nicole Kidman is Perfection.

Measure of Success @ 11/26/2012 at 11:38 am

@toria:
Per Wiki – The North American opening weekend return was “a little disappointing” for New Line Cinema, earning US$25.8 million with total domestic box office of $70 million compared to an estimated $180 million production budget. [continues with international numbers] By July 6, 2008, it had earned $302,127,136 internationally, totaling $372,234,864 worldwide.
Overseas rights to the film were sold to fund the $180 million production budget for the film, so most of these profits did not go to New Line. This has been cited as a potential “last straw” in Time Warner’s decision to merge New Line Cinema into Warner Bros Pictures.
The greater the margin (budget/earnings) the more marketable the actor will be viewed and the greater chance for producers back/ (and receive) funding.
Banking on the American audience was New Lines mistake, but all production companies are hedging their bets (Domestic/International) and the more solid of previous earning by an actor/actress the greater chance of offers.
Nicole Kidman may do better with smaller budgets based on past performance of her movies – If that is her focus then that’s her focus.
My only thing is why mess with your money maker (face), expressions are a part of the acting repertoire and if it becomes noticeable it can be distracting and to many people (like me) a put off.
Leave the fillers, botox and other cosmetic changes to other “celebrities” who have no talent to offer.

nicole looks like a vax figure, botox is unfortunatrly her best friend
i dont watch her movies for that reason, look at her fake lips gives me creeps

She looks gorgeous… and of course haters have not idea about her career… I like even more the indie’s films she does… she’s a true actress a true talent.

I’m excited about “before I go to sleep” I just read the book and is awesome… I think Colin will be perfect for the role.

BTW Haters… if you hate her so much why are you reading news about her? get a life… if you don’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything!!!

I do wish that “Paperboy” would just die and go away (I thought it had). I like Nicole a lot, but think she is just being too insistent promoting this mess and think it’s been a mistake. Most of her fans like to think of her as a classy lady, this role defies that in every way. Nashville and country music fans, generally, are pretty conservative. It would have been nice if Nicole had taken this into consideration before taking the role. Personally, I think it’s an embarrassment to her family and fans. Nicole, please lick your wounds and let it go.

Little MY @ 11/26/2012 at 1:13 pm

I love Nicole and she is starting to look like her old self again, what a beautiful woman. She is truly a living hollywod legend and an icon for ages to come.

To all you haters pining away for Keith Urban:
you should grab a copy of this week’s New Idea Magazine http://au.lifestyle.yahoo.com/new-idea/news/magazine/article/-/15459559/issue-49-this-week-in-new-idea/. It’s very evident to people who have met them and know them how madly in love they are with each other, and how devoted they are to their children. btw … the article was not based on some unnamed “sources”, but on interviews with Father Ed Steiner, who gave his opinion based on his observations.
