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?

Nicole Kidman is practically perfect in every way. No wonder she’s playing Grace Kelly. Part of her perfection is due to her hairstylist, who must be one of the most obsessive people I’ve ever read about. It’s in a good way, though. The attention to detail he puts into doing her hair is just insane. He does research on her previous hairstyles before he even touches her head. His name is John Nollet and he also works on Audrey Tautou and Johnny Depp’s ex, Vanessa Paradis.
Here’s a glimpse into his process and some secrets about Nicky K’s hair. From Vogue Australia via the Herald Sun:
Ten days before the [Cannes] festival, I researched Nicole’s red carpet looks to understand her preferences in term of volume, shapes, textures … to add something different compared to what she had already done during her career. I prepared about 10 moodboards showing her images, paintings, textures and sketches to understand, depending on her reactions, which one she [preferred]. I would have not have been able to create anything magical without listening to her feelings.
Due to her super-tight schedule [I had] to have her coiffure ready in 20 minutes … maximum! To be on time, I used to repeat at night every movement I had to do the day after, in order to be ready to create the coiffure as fast as possible.
[Product placement alert like whoa!] … I washed her hair with L’Oréal Paris Hair Expertise EverCrème Shampoo and Conditioning Spray … Volume is naturally part of curly hair and that is what the coiffure has to play with. [Letting the hair dry] naturally enhances the curls.
Oh my God wait, so this man is responsible for Ms. Kidman’s classy mullet??? Duuuuuuude. Should have busted out more moodboards. Pretty sure he was responsible for this mess as well:
