Nicole Kidman Stabs Her "Best Friend" Naomi Watts In The Back

Naomi Watts is nominated for an Academy Award this year. Nicole Kidman is not. 60 Minutes asked for a brief interview with Nicole so she could talk about Naomi and the nomination as part of an interview they are airing with Naomi. According to the NY Daily News, Nicole said she couldn't because she didn't have the time. Yes, you know, because it takes a lot of time to do what Nicole does all day which is nothing. Nannies for the kids. Chefs for the kids. It is not like Nicole needs time to eat during the day. Nicole is jealous. Nicole is jealous that her career is crap and that she can't make a hit movie to save her life and that she needs more and more botox each year to keep her plastic look going. Some best friend. If someone was your best friend and they had a chance to win an Academy Award, don;t you think you would be doing whatever you could for them? Well, be grateful Nicole Kidman is not your friend, although Nicole would expect you to do it for her and then probably pat you on your head and say good boy. Oh, wait that is what she says to Keith.

Where's the backstabbing? If she didn't have time,just take it as is.

FSP said...

Further proof that redheads are evil.

prolixe said...

Reveal for the actress who didn't have TIME for charity?

Sylvia said...

Is their more to the story???

Not that I am defending Nicole, I never considered her that good of an actress but just wondering..

surfer said...

Oh please. I highly doubt Nicole is jealous. She also has an Oscar.

Me said...

maybe naomi asked her not to(?)

Sherry said...

What are the real details here? I wouldn't doubt Nic is jealous but there may be more here than meets the eye.

Doing volunteer work and can't research.

Ella Bella Boo said...

I resent that! I'm a natural redhead.. oh wait. Nevermind. :P

Alma said...

I think this is a little much. Maybe she should be more supportive or maybe they both still want to downplay the lesbian rumors.

Where's Shelly? said...

Entys exactly spot on with this story. Read the warm caring expression on Naomi's face in pics with Nicole, read the cold dead uncaring frozen look on Nicoles, the above pic shows it. JMO. Best Friends would do this for each other, and no granny freeze is not busy, and yes her career is utterly in the toilet, she did a good job of acting like who she actually is when she got the oscar, a cold, solitary, depressed person, how is that a stretch for her? Naomi could have really used her help in this, but Nicole is too busy? Doing WHAT exactly???????

Agent**It said...

This is such BS. Oh, Entward, your 10 year old outrage over a BS story from the NY Daily News !! Why, it's outrageous !!!!

goheels83 said...

Lol at Entys pic here. Isn't there a blind that is rumored to be about them that says they were lovers at some point? Did I make that up?

Its just U said...

My husband said to me, when the SAG awards were on, that it was ages since they'd been seen together considering they were supposed to be best friends.
I hadn't noticed til he said it. I wonder now if they are the answer to a recent blind about 2 friends, one of which had slept with the others significant other.

FSP said...

Just teasing, Boo.

Jessica said...

I dunno, I have a hard time with the whole "campaigning for an award" thing. I think it's pretty low itself. I know if someone ever asked me to help with something like that, I sure wouldn't do it. Thankfully I'll never be asked.

MadLyb said...

As much as I like Jennifer Lawrence, I'm really rooting for Naomi to win the Oscar this year. It would be a well-deserved upset. At this point, though, I don't understand why her best friend wouldn't help in giving her that extra boost. She really could use it since the buzz is saying either Chastain or Lawrence will win it.

Renoblondee said...

I defend Goop, anf I defend Nicole. I refuse to believe it!

auntliddy said...

I read this elsewhere and thought : mb she has good reason? Mb really doesnt have time? Idk. On the fence with this one.

Kathleen said...

This is a nasty, petty little piece of unsubstantiated vitriol, now isn't it? Just say "I dislike Nicole Kidman" and save yourself the effort next time.

Cathy said...

I'm not a fan of Nicole, but maybe she didn't want to take the spotlight away from Naomi by involving herself.

whocaresnow12 said...

She didn't have time. That's all she asked to sit next to Naomi at the SAG Awards.

B626 said...

I was going to stick up for Nicole but I notice on IMBD she has nothing filming.Think she keeps these months open just in case she's nominated during award season? That Paperboy performance was just an exagerated Suzanne Stone redo.

LottaColada said...

The whole thing seems to be blown out of proportion. I'll wait it out until some real backstabbing starts up.

mannyv said...

It looks like Nicole's about to suck Naomi's soul out of her body.

Pogue Mahone said...

Maybe she really does have a good reason?

Kloie said...

Ouch. Way harsh, Enty. Next thing you know, you'll call her a virgin who can't drive.

Trey said...

Still like Nicole.

fubugrass said...

I really doubt that Nicole is all that upset about the direction of her career. She received rave reviews and was nominated for an Oscar for her role in Rabbit Hole in 2011 and this year she has received all sorts of acclaim for Hemingway & Gellhorn. Sure she's made some crap, but mostly it looks like she's been working on more independent features recently, which regularly do not pull in huge box office numbers. Naomi's career is about on par with Nicole's. Pretty much the same hit to miss ratio. Keep your claws in, Enty. You're blowing a bunch of steam up our butts with this.

ash said...

wow way harsh, this seems like a lot to extrapolate from the fact that she turned down one interview!

Alexis makeme said...

@MadLyb
I love Lawrence too and also don't want her to get the Oscar! I don't want her get any backlash. I root for Riva though.

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

I dunno,,,it seems like she shoulda been able to spare some time to do this interview. It's 60 minutes, not Extra-Tv.

PuggleWug said...

What a ridiculous article. Enty dislikes Nicole, therefore she is a bitch.

discoflux said...

I *do* live in the same city as you, FSP.

RocketQueen said...

Ugh...yes, let's just run with the "jealous" angle on this one. There could be myriad reasons why Nicole couldn't do it - everyone is saying she was asked last minute. Making a story out of nothing. Somebody really hates Nicole.

hag said...

Love Naomi- think she is a phenomenal actress

phoenix said...

Nicole's film Stoker is awaiting release, The Railway Man is in post production, and Grace of Monaco is filming in Europe. Not exactly a chit career with nothing but time on her hands, and she's not even in the country.

Stick with the Daily Mail Enty.

Helen Lawson said...

Naomi is a good actress but she is not going to win this year. She was in a coma for half the movie.

urban chaos said...

Where's Shelly, remember Nic cannot show emotion in her face- botox and all..

jax said...

it's Hollywood, this shit happens all the time.

FlirtyChick74 said...

I'm with Enty on this one. That was petty of her. How long does it take to do an interview? If she can't be there in person, she can type something up or do a phone interview. I think she would have looked far classier if she had complimented her best friend instead brushing the whole thing off with "I don't have time". She's made her mark in Hollywood. No one is taking that away from her.

FlirtyChick74 said...

Ann Hathaway died within the first ten minutes of Les Miserables and she was nominated for an Oscar.

FSP said...

I sorry, disco.

All about Eve said...

I like both and this just sounds like its being blown out of proportion!

Megan said...

Wasn't it rumored that they actually hate each other? Or that Naomi hates Nicole, something like that?

timebob said...

Maybe she thought she was doing Naomi a favor and staying out of it. The Academy voters are fickle they could be turned off by a full court press to get them to vote for Naomi.

But, really I think people have roles in their friendship and Nicole was the higher of the two fame wise and now that has shifted and she no likey.

You can be famous, but not MORE famous than me. I'm the award winner not you. Not that I think Naomi would win either way. She will be boxed out by AnnE or Jennifer.

Ivs said...

There's probably more to this story. But just like that, I'd say it's a bitch move, obviously. Hopefully though she turned it down and told Naomi before doing so; I know I'd make sure my bestie heard it from me!

crila16 said...

I agree. It's not really a case of back stabbing. It's more that she's not a supportive friend. That's because she's jealous. Naomi is basically the same age, has had no work, and looks fabulous and far younger than Nicole. When will women realize, botox and surgery do not make you look younger. They just make you look funny and plastic looking.

MissInfo said...

I believe Megan is right...wasn't there a blind about two "supposed" best friends who truly hated each other or another blind about a best friend stabbing someone in the back by sleeping with her husband? And the consensus was Naomi/Nicole (Naomi sleeping with Nicole's man). I might totally be wrong on this one though.

Jeri said...

Didn't Naomi practically move in w/Nicole to console her after the Tom breakup? When Nichole was hot & no one knew who Naomi was?

Naomi deserves the Oscar, she's done a lot of great work. She even made King Kong watchable. That takes talent!

Onyx Loathes Hydrangeas said...

Judging from his blind titled "The Actress" on march 28th of last year, they aren't really much of friends anyway. And you guys are right, he just hates Nicole lol.

Jessie said...

Ease up Enty, perhaps they're not as close as they used to be.

Mister Fresh said...

Nicole and Naomi have been all lovey-dovey at awards shows. But that was when they were both nominees. I am sure Nicole wants her own 60 Minutes piece, when she can control the message and keep the focus on herself.

Maria said...

You make time for your friends. Sorry, I'm with Enty. Nicole is jealous; how long has it been since she got her Oscar. And, I actually like Nicole's acting. I loved THE OTHERS and THE HOURS.

PookieTwo said...

A bit OT but there were pics last week of Nicole arriving in Sydney with her kids and...Russell Crowe. Apparently he was on the same flight. Looked very cozy at the airport holding one of her girls and greeting Keith like an old friend. Wasn't there an old blind here that he and Nic had once hooked up to ill effect and she hadn't spoken to him in years. Then suddenly the photos looking very cozy with him. hmmm.

FalseProfit said...

Kidman is a joke. Here days in the spotlight are long gone. Now, we just get the garbage she weaseled her way into. Seriously, when was the last time you actually wanted to see her in a film?

Blind ItemMe said...

sorry Enty i disagree. naomi probably didnt want her to say anything.

besides if she did say something you would probably write that nicole was trying to take the attention away from Naomi by talking about it!

i have an irrational love for Nicole. *shrugs*

car54 said...

I've seen her doing several interviews lately promoting her new movie where she plays the mother who hates her daughter--I can't think of the title of the film.

dragon said...

What? BS to the Tee. Why would she be jealous. Nicole had good year in the movies. Didn't she get nominated for peeing on Zac Efron.

They might not be close as before but I doubt they are back stabbing each other. Aint nobody got time for that

Bridget said...

Nicole actually stayed with Naomi when she was going through her divorce with TC. They were supposedly very close, but it doesn't take a genius to see that those two aren't particularly close any more. And to all the posters who say that Nicole has already won an Oscar and couldn't possibly begrudge her friend one - you really think that is the face of someone that is secure enough to even have that viewpoint? That a woman who left her kids with TC and a cult while she pursued her careers highest points, and who is notoriously controller in her own image and choices - you really think that she'd be okay with her friend who was the 'lesser' in fame for decades being nominated when she's not? When Nicole was nominated for just about every single award BUT the big one? And there's no way Naomi would have asked Nicole not to film anything. What on earth do you think Oscar campaigning is, but getting support from friends and colleagues so that your movie comes out on top?

Boadacious Betty said...

I've decided to call BS on this one.

NotBuyingItInNashville said...

@car54 - not a stretch for her. She is about as maternal as a log.

She needs to surround herself with puppies and gophers like Urban who cater to her every whim.

Rox (used to be Roxxx) said...

Briget:
Think you're completely spot-on. Nicely said.

Lisa said...

Actually, I wouldn't give 60 Mintues a second of my time. They skew reports and the actions of celebrities all the time. Maybe Nicole didn't want any part of that.

Geez Enty, why all the Nicole hate? Jesus- how about spreading that to the Housewives that you love so much?

ian mcgrinty said...

I don't believe any Nicole Kidman stories on this site, they all just come across as attacks on her.
