Nicole Kidman Stuns in 'Interview' October 2015

Nicole Kidman Stuns in 'Interview' October 2015

Nicole Kidman looks so elegant on the cover of Interview magazine’s October 2015 issue.

Here’s what the 48-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On being an actor: “I suppose expectations are strange and I shy away from them. And the whole point of being an actor is to connect. In the theater, which I’m doing now, when you walk into the rehearsal room on the first day, you’ve got to do it. I think that’s probably my main thing: just do the work. I’m not a big fan of sitting around, saying what I’m going to do. And we’ve all got brilliant ways of ducking and weaving so that we don’t have to do it. But my thing is to just get it on its feet and do it. Whether it’s a scene or just getting a character moving around. You’re going to fall flat on your face, just get back up again. By keeping it that simple, it allows me to play, because I do see it as playtime. I mean, we’re all lucky. We get paid to do it, but ultimately we’re the kids in school that never had to grow up, pretending we’re different people, and then convincing ourselves. I was with another actress the other day, and she said, ‘Oh, I’m not a good actress, because I’m not a good liar.; And I was like, ‘Golly, to me it’s the opposite.’ You have to be so good at what you do that you believe it—so there’s no lie involved.”

On knowing she wanted to be an actor: “Before I got a job, I would catch the bus and go to a theater on a Saturday morning and do classes instead of going to the beach or playing. It was completely self-motivated. My father was a biochemist and my mom was a nurse educator, and they were like, ‘Who is this black sheep of the family?’ [laughs] At that age, I was seeking it out. And I was looking for kindred spirits.”

The October issue also features a portfolio by photographer Fabien Baron titled “In the Air,” celebrating Perennially Inspiring Personalities.

    And heartless

  • Robin

    She is not heartless. Keith said at one time there are two types of people in this world, the ones who know and love my wife and the others who never met her yet.

  • smooshy

    Nice try trolls. Bella invited only a few friends. Not her parents. Not her brother. That’s her choice and brides make that same choice every day. Now that Bella is married will you nitwits stop saying Nicole isn’t raising her two adult children?

    I’m not a troll, aquarius, but I hate the thought of her working with Lee Daniels again. She doesn’t need ‘The Paperboy’ type role, she’s above it. At 48, it would look like an act of desperation.

  • Shelby

    Actresses are odd and the one’s that take their “craft” too seriously are annoying. She’s not that good. She is a tall beauty and that’s why she is succesful. People like to look at her.
