Nicole Kidman Says Makeup Free 2017 Pirelli Calendar Showcases 'Women As Real People'

Nicole Kidman and Helen Mirren are opening up about going makeup free for the 2017 Pirelli Calendar!

The 49-year-old Lion actress and Helen, 71, were photographed by Peter Lindbergh in their natural beauty – without photoshopping – for the calendar, which also includes portraits of Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Rooney Mara, Lupita Nyong’o, and more!

“It’s a choice and we’re allowed to have those choices, and that’s a very important conversation for the next generation, for women and little girls,” Nicole expressed (via THR). “There’s an undoubtedly regressive current towards women and minorities going in a negative direction and then there’s a positive — let’s call it a jet stream — of fast-moving, hot water that we need to fuel moving in the loving direction towards all people. This is a loving gesture coming from Peter from seeing women as real people.”

Last night (November 29), Nicole and Helen put on their best to attend the 2017 Pirelli Calendar Gran Gala alongside Charlotte Rampling, Uma Thurman, Helen‘s hubby Taylor Hackford and Peter Lindberg himself at La Cite Du Cinema in Saint-Denis in Paris, France.

“In a way our eyes need to become readjusted, because we’re so used to these spectacularly enhanced digital images and here we’re saying, ‘No let’s go back to a portrait of humanity,” Helen added. “It undoubtedly represents a culture shift.”
