Nicole Kidman is the epitome of fab at 50!

The Australian actress is celebrating the milestone amid what is shaping up to be her biggest year yet, as she continues to slay across both film and television.

Exclusive: Nicole Kidman Talks ‘Low Key’ 50th Birthday Plans

Et first caught up with the red-haired beauty when she was just 22 and buzzing over landing a life-changing role in the 1990 hit Days of Thunder.

Tom Cruise, whom Kidman would later marry and adopt two children with, had spotted her in the Australian film Dead Calm and subsequently cast her as Dr. Claire Lewicki in the action flick.

“I rang my mother and sort of screamed down the telephone and said, ‘I don't believe this, I'm gonna do a film over here!’" she told Et at the time. “It’s a really good role for me and it's the only female role in the whole film, so hopefully »

20 June 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Like a fine wine, Nicole Kidman just gets better with age.  The Australian-bred movie star celebrates her 50th birthday today, a major milestone preceded by many accomplishments, wins and successes spanning nearly thirty years in the spotlight. A star from the get-go, Kidman's American debut opposite then-future (now ex) husband Tom Cruise in 1990's Days of Thunder led to box office hit after box office hit in Malice and To Die For.  She earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, an Oscar and Golden Globe in 2003 for her stunning performance in The Hours, but now 14 years later, Nicole is even more beloved and acclaimed than she probably ever thought possible.

Croisette Queen Nicole Kidman On Coming To The Fest With Four Films & The Runaway Success Of ‘Big Little Lies’ — Cannes

26 May 2017 11:29 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Nicole Kidman has been a household name for nearly 30 years now, but her star never seems to wane. Rocketing to fame in the '80s, she survived the spotlight of a high-profile celebrity marriage to Tom Cruise and emerged triumphant from trial by tabloid. While her peers, and some of her predecessors, chased box-office success in romcoms and franchises, Kidman went for the interesting role, starting in 1995 with Gus Van Sant's mordant black comedy To Die For.

With ‘The Beguiled,’ Sofia Coppola Seeks Cannes Redemption with a Southern-Gothic Remake

23 May 2017 10:27 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

With her sixth feature, “The Beguiled,” Sofia Coppola returns to Cannes in the main Competition. It’s her first time since 2006, when the reception for royal costume drama “Marie Antoinette” evolved from a  scattering of boos to become a reported misfire. That’s the power of the Cannes echo chamber. Her visually sumptuous and witty $40 million studio movie earned a standing ovation at the public screening and a range of reviews, but only made $60.8 million worldwide — not nearly enough to make it profitable.

Coppola had better Cannes luck with her smaller-scaled first feature, the dreamy literary adaptation “The Virgin Suicides” ($10.6 million worldwide). It starred Kirsten Dunst and broke out of Director’s Fortnight with critics’ raves. Her Tokyo-set Bill Murray-Scarlett Johansson two-hander “Lost in Translation” ($117 million worldwide) debuted in Venice on its way to Coppola’s Original Screenplay Oscar.

Why Nicole Kidman Is a Full-Fledged Badass, Even Before ‘Big Little Lies’ — Career Watch

11 April 2017 3:37 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Nicole Kidman, who’s having something of a renaissance moment.

Bottom Line: Nicole Kidman is one of our most fearless actresses. She’s an Oscar perennial who constantly chases challenging material, edginess be damned. Yes, her most recent nomination stemmed from a very mild-mannered role as Dev Patel’s mother in the true-life Australian drama “Lion,” but for Kidman’s career it’s her exceptions that prove the rule.

She broadened her fanbase by producing, with Reese Witherspoon, the hugely popular and topical HBO drama series “Big Little Lies,” in which she co-starred as Celeste Wright, an elegant Monterey mom trapped in a sadomasochistic power struggle of spousal abuse with her husband Perry (Alexander Skarsgard). Critics’ raves and audience reaction will likely push Kidman to »

Biopics vs. Their Fictional Counterparts

11 April 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Some people’s lives are best told truthfully, others more loosely.

In one corner, we have Rocky, the iconic Best Picture-winning boxing movie starring Sylvester Stallone as the made-up Rocky Balboa. In the other corner, we have Chuck, an upcoming biopic starring Liev Schreiber as real-life boxer Chuck Wepner. The latter primarily depicts the 1975 bout between Wepner and Muhammad Ali, which inspired Stallone to write the script for Rocky. He’s since tried to downplay the connection, especially after being sued by Wepner, but it’s close enough to being a film a clef as any.

Chuck received mostly positive reviews when it played the big film festivals last fall, but it’s unlikely to become the phenomenon, let alone Oscar darling, that Rocky was. Its legacy surely won’t be as lasting, in part because true biopics don’t tend to get sequels. There are a lot of benefits to fictionalized accounts of real events and »

Which Film Won as Nicole Kidman’s Best Performance in the ‘Kidman World Cup’?

9 April 2017 1:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To be a Nicole Kidman fan hasn’t always been easy. The Australian star may consistently turn in strong, challenging work in a diverse range of arthouse and commercial fare, but inconsistent box-office returns and ongoing tabloid scrutiny of her personal life makes for a fair amount of pushback. She may have won an Oscar and starred in a number of critical darlings, but she somehow inspires snarkier commentary — whether about her choice in roles, or her taste in men — than such comparably gifted peers as Cate Blanchett and Julianne Moore. As BuzzFeed’s Anne Helen Petersen wrote in an appreciation earlier this week: “No woman with as much talent as Kidman should be forced to re-argue, over and over again, that she is a force to be taken seriously.”

2017, however, has been a pretty great year for the Kidman faithful. In January, she scored another Oscar nomination — her fourth »

Tuesday Top Twenty: Ranking Nicole Kidman's Work

4 April 2017 4:01 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

By Nathaniel R

Nicole at the Acm Awards this weekAs mentioned in our piece on the finale of Big Little Lies the internet is finally accepting that Nicole Kidman is a genius. Why they haven't noticed that she's been a regularly gripping actor since Dead Calm (1989) with her ascent into intermittent genius happening as early as 1995 (twenty-two years ago!) with her sly breakthrough as fame-obsessed Suzanne Stone in Gus Van Sant's To Die For (Golden Globe win, Best Actress in a Comedy) we will never understand.

But it is what it is. Actresses not named Meryl Streep have to go through this from time to time with people doubting their talent. One imagines if Michelle Pfeiffer is brilliant in any of her comeback roles this year we will get a raft of "who knew this 80s sex symbol, Catwoman herself, was also a great actor?!" articles and we will »

Oscars 2017: Best Actor is Now Denzel Washington vs. Casey Affleck

1 February 2017 10:02 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

By now, the Best Actor Oscar race usually has settled on an anointed frontrunner. And that was the case — until Sunday’s SAG Awards. Not anymore. It’s a two-way race.

Here are my Best Actor picks in order of likelihood to win:

Casey Affleck: Throughout the awards season, the “Manchester By the Sea” star has been steady as he goes. He won awards at the Gothams, National Board of Review, New York Film Critics Circle, Critics Choice, and Golden Globes for carrying Amazon Studios’ $10-million Sundance pickup “Manchester by the Sea” (Roadside Attractions) as Lee, a capable Boston janitor weighed down by sadness, anger, and depression. What happened to make him this way? That is what writer-director Kenneth Lonergan’s precisely crafted movie reveals.

While Affleck has delivered many fine performances, often supporting, and was nominated eight years ago for “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, »

Entertainment Feature: Top 20 Celebrity Portraits of 2016, By Photographer Joe Arce

13 January 2017 9:16 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The year 2016 was a dangerous one to be a famous person. In the past twelve months, one dozen of my former photo subjects passed away, celebrities who at one time or another famously posed for my lens. However, on a positive note, at least photos are forever. Or to quote the immortal words of Pee Wee Herman – “Why don’t you take a picture, it will last longer!”

The ranking of the portraits are based on a combination of the star power wattage of the subjects, the artistic results and the difficulty of landing the quarry…for those budding smart-phone-celebrity-stalkers who may wish to play along at home. So without further adieu, I present my top 20 celebrity portraits of 2016.
