“ She was incredible in 'I am Dina' and I must admit I haven't seen her in any other movie. Well, I could watch this one a few more times because she is astounding in the picture, both in terms of her performance and her physical appearence. What a rare diamond! ” - arjendijkstra

“ Okay, 'Superbad' is one of my favourite comedies of all time and no, that's not necessarilly because of her, but oh my, she is so charming. She saved 'Easy A' though. Very funny, very sexy and I believe she is modest too. She's going to be big, mark my words... ” - arjendijkstra

“ Nicole Kidman is beautiful, but I am not necessarily actracted to her. Having said this: but she is one of the best actresses of her generation. 'Dogville', 'Eyes wide shut', 'Margot at the wedding', to name but a few brilliant roles should bring her in the top ten of any list. ” - arjendijkstra

“ 'King Kong', 'Mulholland drive', 'Eastern Promises', '21 grams', 'Funny games U.S.', impressive list, not that memorable though, because they were no lead parts. She seems to be the 'tipical' wife or girlfriend. Well, okay, no problem. ” - arjendijkstra
