Aaron Eckhart Couldn’t Share A Bathroom With Nicole Kidman

Aaron Eckhart, he of the mighty dimpled chin, has only the nicest most wonderful happy rainbows dancing-off-into-the-sunset things to say about Nicole Kidman. The two of them worked together on the small indie film Rabbit Hole in 2010 that Ms. Kidman was apparently Oscar nominated for. I don’t remember any of this. I don’t know where I was in 2010. Because it was such a small film, amenities weren’t balls out luxurious, but they made do with what they had, those little troupers! Eckhart gushes (via Belfast Telegraph),

I love Nicole and she was a joy to work with. I would say, ‘OK Nicole, my trailer is too small and my lunch is late.’ And she would have to go run around and take care of me that way and that was quite cute.

His lunch was late? Was he okay???? And if he thought that was bad he was “shocked” when he realized the two of them would have to share a bathroom.

Nicole and I actually shared the upper portion of a house. We had two rooms right next to each other; I was actually in an office. And on the first day I went to go to the bathroom before going down to set and I found out that Nicole and I were sharing a bathroom. Excuse me, but I can’t share a bathroom with Nicole Kidman. It’s just not right.

Wow, these are the kinds of incredible stories about friendship that you read about in novels. You never think you see them in real life. But here we are. First Eckhart and Kidman and now Will Forte and Jennifer Aniston; true friendship is everywhere.

Australian Super Post: So, Russell Crowe Was Kind of a Dick to Rebel Wilson

Everyone seems to absolutely adore Rebel Wilson. I don’t mind her – she’s funny, down-to-earth and doesn’t annoy the shit out of me, so that’s good enough in my books. But that’s besides the point. What is the point? Well, she appeared on The Tonight Show earlier this week and revealed that she won the Nicole Kidman Scholarship at the Australian Theatre for Young People as a kid, an honour which made her sort of freak out when she saw Nicole in the flesh a few years later having dinner with Russell Crowe (because all Australian people hang out together all the time).

“One time in Sydney, I saw her having dinner with Russell Crowe and I go, ‘OK, now’s my chance. I’m going to say thank you’,” Wilson recalled.

“I went up to them but, before I could say anything, Russell Crowe turns to me and says, ‘F-ck off!’”

Wilson revealed that she was totally stunned by Crowe’s behavior, explaining: “I just put my head down and walked the other way!”

The Australian actress went on to credit Kidman with helping her get her start in the entertainment industry through the scholarship program.

“I got to go to New York to study comedy and Nicole Kidman paid for everything: an apartment, going to see Broadway shows… She doesn’t know about that,” Wilson teased. (via DigitalSpy)

I’m not really sure what happened there, to be honest. Does Russell Crowe make a habit of telling people to f-ck off? Is Russell Crowe a total asshole? Was Rebel Wilson just making a weird joke? Who can say. It’s Friday and we have better things to think about, like weekend naps, warmer weather and my adorable dog, Milo (obligatory):


Happy Friday!

Nicole Kidman Looks Really High In Her New Commercial For Vitamins

nicole kidman 2013

Nicole Kidman is promoting multivitamins now. Uh, okay. Why not, I guess. Yeah, move over Boniva spokeswoman Sally Field, Nicole Kidman also wants women to be all healthy and junk!

She’s really happy about these vitamins, you guys. Really, REALLY happy. Like pretending she’s an airplane, twirling around like a ballerina, dancing, talking to her fingers happy. I’m not saying that she’s high while filming this. I’m saying the director made a really interesting choice here. I mean, come on, no one gets that happy from taking vitamins. I think they were going for a carefree and breezy feel but all I see is someone who smoked a lot of weed and said, “Guys, guys, hey…let’s just play in this garden. You know? Let’s just…let’s just play.”

I love Nicole Kidman. I’m excited to see her as Grace Kelly.

Paging Nicole Kidman: BFF Naomi Watts Thinks Plastic Surgery Can Look ‘Freakish’

naomi watts

Naomi Watts is the latest star to go on and on about how much she loves aging naturally and how doesn’t believe in plastic surgery. The difference is, I actually kind of believe her, for some reason. Maybe it’s because I really dig Naomi as just like, a lady in general. I met her a few years back and she was really sweet, quite shy and actually told me to go write a book. I haven’t done that yet, but it’s the thought that counts, I guess. Anyway, unlike her BFF Nicole Kidman, who’s pumped her face so full of Botox she’s like her own Madame Tussaud’s wax figure, Naomi prefers to go for the more natural look so that she can actually do her job as an actress and emote.

From Australia’s Good Health:

“Most of the characters I play are going through some kind of emotional turmoil, so my job requires me to have expression,” she said. “If my face is frozen, what right do I have to play that part?”

“All the women who haven’t done anything to their faces are still able to play great roles. And some of the ones who have done something have messed it up – they look freakish. Anyway, for me it’s about playing women with rich lives – and the longer the life, the deeper the wrinkles. [But] never say never – and I certainly don’t judge anyone who does it.”

Fair enough. I wouldn’t be a very good feminist if I bitched about anyone’s choice to do whatever the hell they want with their face – even if it does make them look like a demented clown – and a little something here and there if it makes you feel more confident in your appearance is fine. I just really dig getting older and I can’t wait for grey hair and wrinkles and shit. It means you’ve lived a life! Then again, ask me again in 10 years when the crow’s feet are starting to take over and we’ll see how I feel then.

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.

Grammy Fashion 2013

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards happened last night and all that means to me is that we get to “Ooh!” and “Ahh!” and “WTF?” over what everyone was wearing. There were guidelines this year for what attendees could and could not wear. I mean, really! Here are some highlights:

Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. [...] Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible ‘puffy’ bare skin exposure.

Hee hee, puffy! That’s some creative phrasing.

So let’s get to some standouts, for better or for worse.

Singer Carly Rae Jepsen may have finally redeemed herself in my eyes after that diabolical BCBG nightmare of an outfit she wore at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. (Rumor has it someone was fired over that outfit. I hope so.)

Nicole Kidman Is Jealous of BFF Naomi Watts

Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts have been best friends for donkeys, so it seems only natural that Nicky would be thrilled for Naomi’s recent Oscar nomination for her work in The Impossible, the film about the 2004 tsunami in Thailand that’s based on a true story. (Side note: it’s good – see it if you haven’t!) Unfortunately, Nicole – who has always seemed a bit too much like her character in The Golden Compass, to me – is not really into it because she’s used to being the one in the limelight. So instead of getting over herself like any normal, mature adult would do, she’s just refusing to take part in any Oscar promo involving Naomi.

Give it to us, New York Daily News:

Naomi Watts will appear in an upcoming CBS Oscar segment to help with her Oscar campaign for Best Actress in The Impossible — and her best frenemy, Nicole Kidman, is refusing to participate.

Producers wanted Kidman to speak in a quick “five-minute” segment set to air on the network before the Academy Awards on Feb. 24. It was in discussion to be filmed with 60 Minutes correspondent Lara Logan and focuses on Watts’ dramatic turn in The Impossible.

“She declined,” snipes our insider. “Clearly she’s not inclined to help her friend because she’s jealous she’s not in this year’s Oscar’s spotlight.”

While an insider close to Kidman insists that the reason she couldn’t plug her pal on 60 Minutes had nothing to do with a case of sour grapes, producers aren’t buying it. “She couldn’t do it because of her schedule,” says the source. “It was a last-minute thing. Nicole and Naomi are best friends.”

But the source also took a swipe at Watts, saying that without Kidman, the segment is no longer important: “Not sure of the length or importance of it now without Nicole agreeing to it.”

Our original insider with knowledge of the segment isn’t backing down, however. “It was a ‘no’ right off the bat [for Nicole.] She could have made time if it was a priority,” says the source.

This bitch! Like, sorry The Paperboy was an absolute disaster and you haven’t been in a financially viable film since Australia – which was 2008, might I add – but you need to give your homegirl some support. Nothing reeks worse than a jealous shrew.
