Hope you weren’t getting your hopes up for Nicole Kidman‘s Grace Kelly biopic, Grace of Monaco. While it was originally due for release in November 2013 and was then moved to March 2014, it’s now been cancelled indefinitely due to a “disagreement” between director Olivier Dahan and Harvey Weinstein.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
The movie has yet to be delivered to Harvey Weinstein’s company, making it difficult to begin generating final marketing materials, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.
French director Olivier Dahan presented a difference version of events, and publicly lashed out at Weinstein for wanting to change the film. “It’s right to struggle, but when you confront an American distributor like Weinstein, not to name names, there is not much you can do,” Olivier told a French newspaper at the time. “There are two versions of the film for now: mine and his … which I find catastrophic.”
Insiders say Weinstein gave Dahan notes, but that Weinstein has no creative control over the project and cannot make cuts to the film.
Well, who knows what really happened here, but the bottom line is that at this point, this movie is never going to make it to any screen, be it at the movie theatre or on DVD. Not that Weinstein will care – he’s too busy making his anti-NRA movie, I suppose.

I’m not sure why, exactly, this is news, but it’s still the holidays and things are a bit slow, so today we’ve got a story about Tom Cruise‘s daughter, Bella, celebrating her 21st birthday at Disney World with brother Connor. Well, the “story” is that she shaved her head and is wearing her new buzz cut in style, apparently.
There she is, throwing her hands up with carefree abandon, as you do when you’re 21 and your parents are rich so you have not a care in the world. Also, when you’re just 21 in general. Here’s People’s “coverage”:
In this Instagram post by her brother, Connor Cruise, Bella sports a fresh red buzz cut as she holds her hands high on the Expedition Everest roller coaster at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla.
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman‘s daughter, who enjoys trying new things with her tresses, decided to hit the theme park with her brother and dad for fun in the sun in celebration of her 21st birthday.
“Safe to say Disney World was a blast,” Connor, 18, says in the caption.
Well, that’s that, I suppose! I need to do some Googling and read up on Bella, actually – I think both the kids sorta went to live with Nicole when she divorced Tom, right? Do they see much of either of their parents anymore? I feel like Nicole is so caught up in the small biological kids she’s got now that Connor and Bella aren’t really around, but that’s pure conjecture.

Nicole Kidman seemed to have it all, as the cliché goes, after winning an Oscar, but in reality, she felt “empty.” She had just gotten divorced from Tom Cruise, and I guess that was on her mind more than the award in her hand. Here’s what she told Harper’s Bazaar Australia, via Us:
[Winning an Oscar] “can show you the emptiness of your own life, which is kind of what it showed me. I was having professional success and my personal life was struggling.
Ummm what do we think of this cover (above)? I feel like laughing but I don’t think that’s what they were going for.

Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes were both married to Tom “I’m totally a good dad, you guys, stop being mean” Cruise, and recent reports suggest that they’re new friends! And what do they talk about? According to a source from National Inquirer via XPOSÉ Entertainment:
[They had] a really nice conversation. They talked a little about what it was like being married to Tom and have stayed in touch ever since. They haven’t discussed intimate issues like sex, and mostly chit chat about their kids and what’s going on in their lives.
The source goes on to say they two actresses would be down for starring in a film together. Yeah, right. That will totally happen. I want to believe. Katie Holmes is super busy right now dealing with Tom’s stupid depositions and trying to figure out twitter, so I don’t think she has the time right now.

Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise got married in 1990 and stayed together for 11 years before ultimately divorcing, and Nicole has remained pretty mum on the details of their relationship for the past decade. However, the topic came up in a new interview with Vanity Fair, for some reason, and she pretty much admitted that while it all seemed pretty romantic and even intoxicating because they were in the throes of fame, she actually didn’t love him all that much. Ouch!
“I was so young,” Nicole Kidman tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Sam Kashner in the December-issue cover story, reflecting back on her marriage to Tom Cruise when she was just 23 years old. “And you know, with no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I’ve met my great love now. And I really did not know if that was going to happen. I wanted it, but I didn’t want it for a while, because I didn’t want to jump from one relationship to another. I had a lot of time alone, which was really, really good, because I was a child, really, when I got married. And I needed to grow up.”
When asked about the unreal level of fame she endured during her marriage to Cruise, Kidman says, “There is something about that sort of existence that, if you really focus on each other and you’re in that bubble, it’s very intoxicating, because it’s just the two of you. And there is only one other person that’s going through it. So it brings you very close, and it’s deeply romantic. I’m sure Brad and Angelina have that—because there’s nobody else that understands it except that person who’s sleeping right next to you.”
Nicole is married to Keith Urban now, so that’s obviously who she considers to be her “great love”, which is fine and well. To be honest, I think Nicole and Tom did pretty well – 11 years is nothing to shake a stick at in Hollywood, but it again begs the issue: can Hollywood relationships last, especially between two massively famous people at the height of their careers? Obviously Nicole and Keith are doing pretty well, but who knows if it’ll stay that way.

Keith Urban admitted, with some embarrassment, that he sexts wife Nicole Kidman. Better hope neither of their phones get stolen. But you know, it’s cool — celebs are just like us! I can’t even tell if I’m being sarcastic anymore. On Ellen, he talked about how he and his wife keep in touch with their busy schedules — he with his touring and American Idol-ing, and she with being the best actress in the world and getting shoved onto the sidewalk by paparazzi on bicycles. Here’s what he said, via Toronto Sun:
We just make it work. We never text, we never email. Phone calls only, which I really love that. [...] Maybe one text. Maybe one cool kind of, you know… Nice sex texting. I’m a little red right now.
I did an artist’s rendering of what he looked like:
Do YOU sext? Are you worried someone’s going to see it?
