First Photos Of Nicole Kidman As Grace Kelly

Nicole Kidman is playing Grace Kelly in an upcoming film, and the first photos are out. I think a lot of people hated her dress at the Oscars but I thought it was gorgeous and that she is gorgeous and that even her laugh is gorgeous and I think I have a crush on her. Whether she resembles Ms. Kelly closely or not, I think we can all agree that she looks beautiful.

The film, directed by Olivier Dahan (La Vie en Rose), is said to be released sometime in 2014. This is going to be one of those roles that begs for an Oscar. As for the film itself…not sure. This is a Weinstein production, and Harvey Weinstein loves Nicole Kidman (I don’t mean “in love”) so they’re probably going to focus on the lead actress nomination angle on this one. Yeah, I know the Oscars just happened but this is what they do. It’s a machine. They never stop. talks about how TWC is going balls-out on this one. They’ve secured, “a $5 million minimum guarantee and a P&A commitment around $10 million for a minimum 800 screen run.” The film also stars Tim Roth (as Prince Rainier III of Monaco), Frank Langella, Paz Vega, Parker Posey and Milo Ventimiglia. It will mostly focus on Kelly’s transition from movie star to princess.

  • 1. Nicole Kidman never at any point in her life even slightly resembled Grace Kelly. 2. Unless this movie picks up with Grace Kelly in her early middle age years, Nicole Kidman is decades too old to play Grace Kelly….they just don’t make that much Botox. 3. I would have liked to see Sienna Miller in the role.

    • Honestly I was also surprised by the casting choice. However at 31 Sienna Miller isn’t exactly young either. It really depends on what years the movie spans. But as I said, it looks like it is going to focus on her leaving Hollywood and transitioning into being a princess. Oh man though do I love Sienna Miller. Did you see the Hitchcock Tippi Hedren movie she did?

      • I sure did and she was great. I wish I could recall the name of the actor who played “Hitch.” He did the other “Capote” movie that Phillip Seymour Hoffman won an Oscar for. I’m asking for the book “Spellbound: Bewitched by Beauty” for my birthday. It’s supposed to give the run-down on all the “Hitchcock Blondes.”

      • HIs name is Toby Jones and he’s one of the best actors we have out there. You mention the ‘other’ Capote movie? The one with Jones, Sandra Bullock and Daniel Craig KICKED ‘Capote’s’ ass if you ask me. It was a million times better!

  • I wish you could meld Nicole with Charlize Theron. Nicole could emote the more emotional aspects of Grace Kelly and Charlize could totally own the ice goddess side. I love playing who would you cast!
