Here is what I think Nicole Kidman does well. I think Nicole Kidman used to be a very good actress. At some point she crossed the line and became someone who is too over the top and can't seem to find her groove again. She still dresses better than 95% of the world and other celebrities and knows what looks good on her. She has an excellent plastic surgeon and will probably look the same thirty years from now as she does today. She is a master at media manipulation but is growing more desperate and it shows. The problem she is facing is that she has made millions of dollars making movies that have tanked or where her acting was sub-par and needs to stir up the publicity machine to ensure the checks keep rolling in and the corresponding fame. Nicole Kidman is not immune to the fame bug and loves it and craves it.
Here is what Nicole Kidman does not do well. Sexy. Oh back in the day she could be sexy enough. There is something really sexy about her in Dead calm and I will go out on a limb and say that she was even sexy in Days Of Thunder because she still had not been corrupted and possibly was even in love with Tom Cruise. That is the limit to her being sexy.
So, when I read an interview where she tries to say that she really is sexy it comes across as desperation. “I like to have the luxury of putting on something really high, because I just feel sexier.. If I’m in the mood, I’m the girl that will dance on the table with a snake.”
I am guessing Nicole Kidman has never been in that mood and is just saying something she saw in a movie once at least when it comes to the dancing on a table with a snake. As for the shoe thing she constantly references high heels because at one point she made that joke on Letterman about wearing heels after her divorce to Tom Cruise and since that point a decade ago she has brought up high heels.Sexy is not something you force.
