Nicole Kidman Thinks She Is Sexy

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.

ENTY Y U HATE SHOOZ??

a non a miss said...

LEAVE NICOLE ALONE!!!

Alexstrasza said...

She has had work done, but I still think she's quite pretty. She looks good here.

TalksTooMuch said...

Sorry, had to get that out of my system. Look, Enty, I hated Nicole in Eyes Wide Shut too. It was quite possibly the worst movie ever made, which of course it would be because it is a Kubrick. I've moved on, Nicole has moved on, Kubrick moved down and Tommy moved right the eff into left field. It's time to let go. Breathe in and out, in and out and repeat after me: Nicole Kidman has no control over how I feel about myself

Cleodacat said...

All I hear when she speaks is the Wonh Wonh Wonh the adults make in Peanuts cartoons. (And with that, I'm off to class. Have a great day CDANers!).

a non a miss said...

I think Kubrick died after that movie, not that the movie had anything to do with it.

OR DID IT?!?!

tulsa70s said...

I get it, Enty.

I thought Nicole was great in BMX Bandits, too.

TalksTooMuch said...

That's what I meant, he moved six FOOT (and then probably some more) down. Man I hate his movies.

Cobspiracy theory round TWO!!

Renoblondee said...

Nicole is awesome. The end.

TalksTooMuch said...

No, wait, I'm pretty sure he died during the filming of the epic crapfest that is AI because Speilberg had to come in and schmaltz it up to finish it. Hey, did we just go OT?? Ohhhhh

Freya said...

He died before the movie was finished.

MeanieReese said...

FFS, stay on topic here!

:)

I think she's pretty and I'm sure she can be sexy to some. Different strokes for different folks.

StewMcG said...

She was also pretty sexy in "To Die For" (the movie where she seduces Joaquim Phoenix and convinces him to kill her husband, played by Matt Dillon.)

auntliddy said...

Jeebus, Leave it alone Enty. She isnt a monster,she didnt kill or molest anyone, she does a credible job acting. Relax already!

a non a miss said...

He died after screening Eyes Wide Shut. Speilberg directed AI after consulting with Kubrick. The film was dedicated to him (Kubrick had been developing the film for years)

Soo Eyes Wide Shut totally killed him

breezy said...

Geeze Enty, you seem blissfully unaware of what a nasty asshole you sound like.

You're far worse than 99% of those you criticize imo.

I pity the people who have to live with you.

8=====D - KermitGosnellKnobJockey said...

"Nicole Kidman thinks she is sexy".
That quote would be an example of stupidity or blindness if she was meryl streep, oprah or Tori Spelling, but she is actually sort of sexy, even with all that surgery.

rhinovodka said...

I don't mind Nicole-I think she is quite pretty, always thought she was a bit shy and awkward, perhaps I am easily fooled though. I believe she is harmless and there are a lot worse people in the world than Nicole Kidman.

Shark Week said...

So... female Enty, writing this, right? No way a guy would say all this stuff.
By the way, ALL women will feel sexier on heels. Are on a count down to the end, Enty?

Baka Neko said...

If Nicole Kidman thinks she's sexy then she's smart because she is without a doubt sexy. I just hope she goes back to red hair because that was the best hair color( espically in Practical magic).

AJ said...

She was kinda sexy in the movie with Sandra Bullock when they both play witches.

Star said...

I have to agree she is the most beautiful non sexy women ever, right up there with Gwen

S.joy said...

This is one of the worst write-ups ever lol... shockingly bad. Get it together Enties, you're such jerks today!

Freya said...

The video actually made me like her more.
And I think she's gorgeous.

nancer said...

holy shit. what's with the kidman hate? what horrible thing has she done that she gets torn apart every day? she's a GOOD actress. she's done some movies that didn't do well, but i haven't seen her embarrass herself in any of her roles. she's not afraid to take risks. surely there are other actresses out there deserving of all this vitriol, but i do NOT get what SHE'S done to deserve it.

TalksTooMuch said...

a non a miss (if that is your real name) are you a googler, or a Kubrick fan??

Googlers are the best, but if you are a Kubricker, I will have to say good day. I say GOOD DAY, Sir!

a non a miss said...

Both? I love Google and A Clockwork Orange but mostly for Malcolm McDowell.

I actually did use Google for the AI info, did not know he was involved in it. AI is a horrible movie.

FrenchGirl said...

i thought she was sexy in the commercial,she's sexy in THE OTHERS (sexy like Grace Kelly can be),she's sexy in BIRTHDAY GIRL and EYES WIDE SHUT
and she could comeback to a red hair color :she's like Amy Adams (she looks better in red)

a non a miss said...

The Others is a terrifying movie.

MeanieReese said...

@ a non a miss: I <3 you for bringing up A Clockwork Orange!

Malcolm forevah!

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

I got so distracted by comments to leave the comment I was going to make. Whoops! I love Eyes Wide Shut. Also, I assume the movie would be a lot different since Kubrick died and could not be apart of the editing process. Also, Kidman is effing annoying in it but that's the point!

Oh well, moving on.

__-__=__ said...

She keeps doing the "marriage to Tom was amazing" thing. That's why we hate her. Huge hypocrite. Huge. People like her should always be called out. Living a life of public lies is not good.

TalksTooMuch said...

I will grudgingly cede that A Clockwork Orange was okay, the first half anyway, before everyone started staring meaningfully at walls with terrified expressions while annoying music notes play in the background, like every Kubrick movie EVER

LottaColada said...

@a non a miss

I agree, kiddy ghosts scare the bejeezus out of me.

TalksTooMuch said...

@Meanie: we are so far OT someone is going to get a strongly worded comment directed at them any.minute.now

Flora Goforth said...

"I’m the girl..." not for at least 20 years.

MeanieReese said...

No kidding, Talky (may I call you Talky?)...I'm bracing for the cyber knuckle rapping due to come in 3...2...1...

nancer said...

well, did it ever occur to anyone that there are things she CAN'T say about tom because of the terms of their divorce? even if she just CHOSE not to divulge the real story with all its gory details, isn't that her prerogative? it doesn't make her a liar or a hypocrite. that's ridiculous.

a non a miss said...

If you are a Malcolm fan, have you ever seen Time After Time? He plays HG Wells and uses a time machine to come to the 20th century to capture Jack the Ripper?

FAVORITE MOVIE EVER.

Started my obsession with MM and Jack the Ripper. And then A Clockwork Orange.

Seven of Eleven said...

@TTM, I thought I was the only one! I hated Eyes Wide Shut and 2001 and everyone raves about both of them.

Whatevs, I like Nicole Kidman and I'm liking her even more now that everyone's hating on her. I even liked her in that ridiculous Australian movie with Russell Crowe and that even more ridiculous movie with Tommy the Irishman Cruise.

Moriah said...

OMG, shoes.

a non a miss said...

Full Metal Jacket and Barry Lyndon aren't bad. He isn't my favorite director but I won't deny he is influential.

Painter3 said...

Just reading the title scares me.

a non a miss said...

I saw that in the theaters and freaking jumped out of my seat at that one part.Screamed loud as hell too.

AJ said...

God that movie scared me. And it has the 9th Doctor from Doctor Who in it as well. Always a plus in my book.

OneEyeCharlie said...

Not a huge Kubrick fan, but there's a big one in the plus column for me.

Full Metal Jacket

TalksTooMuch said...

Okay, Full Metal Jacket was okay too, I admit it! Not all of his movies are horrible. Are you happy now, a non a miss? Are you? Dang you, dang you right to heck!

msgirl said...

What about Dr. Strangelove! That was brilliant!

TalksTooMuch said...

@7: I had to watch the whole movie, all four hundred hours of it, because I wanted to make absolutely sure it was the worst ever and it totally was.

a non a miss said...

MUAHAHAHA. It was my plan all along.

TalksTooMuch said...

You absolutely can call me Talky, I love that you brought Nellie back! We are soooooo getting a timeout, wait for it...

MeanieReese said...

Ow!!! Mean Enty!! Mean!

EllenPo said...

That quote was really worth such a ranting post and video clip? And I'm with you, Shark Week - This Enty must be a woman.
Has anyone seen Nicole's performance in To Die For? That was the first time I thought she could really act. That was SUCH a good movie.

MeanieReese said...

I love Time after Time. :)

Topper Madison said...

Dang. Now that I know they exist, I need these shoes: http://whoozines.com/cruise-collection-2014-by-jimmy-choo/

roxie said...

no wonder she is laying in the sand....those shoes probably hurt like a bitch and probably can't even walk in them!

Sis said...

There was an interview she did a while back about being a painfully shy child and when she would act she became someone else, that resonated with me and I've respected her ever since...besides...

She can wear the high heels and if I could without hurting myself I would too, lol!!!!

Practical Magic is one of my favorite fun movies!

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Uh-oh. I consider Kubrick the god of cinema. The undisputed master. I'm transfixed every time I watch one of his movies. Okay, except perhaps Barry Lyndon which always puts me to sleep. Save your money on film schools. Just watch Kubrick movies. The art of astounding film making is right there. Kubrick is light years ahead of some of history's other legendary over-rated directors *Cough-AlfredHitchcock-cough.*

*Runs out of room before TalksTooMuch throws her pumpkin-spice latte at me. ;)

Also, I think Enty is missing the point here. Nicole said "I like to have the luxury of putting on something really high, because I just feel sexier." Key word: FEEL. She's stating that she feels sexy, not that she considers herself sexy. Feeling Sexy is a state of mind. When we are dressed to the nines don't we feel sexy? Why should Nicole be different?

Orvilla - Awesome to find another Eyes Wide Shut lover. We need to stick together because there aren't too many of us.

TalksTooMuch said...

Of course you do, JBE. You used transfixed and astounded in one paragraph. No judgement, one love.

I think my opprobrium stems from the fact that I would like to work opprobrium into a sentence and haven't been able to yet this week.

studio gulag -- said...

To Die For and EWS are also to be included in that sexy list.

Seven of Eleven said...

@TTM, is that opprobriate?

{I will also see myself out}

MeanieReese said...

OPPROBRIUM!!!!!!!!

MeanieReese said...

@7 You think it's inopprobriate?

Xanadu said...

Probably lost her confidence along the way - like a lot of good actors who happen to be decent people..... Nicole's been picked apart, for no good reason really. American media can't talk about Nicole without overshadowing her with some old TC circus footage. It must be extremely frustrating for her, as I think she's someone who truly loves the craft. My only criticism is that terrible accent her, Simon Baker and Naomi Watts are forced to put on in American productions. It just sounds confused.

TalksTooMuch said...

Hey, opprobriumrz gonna opprobrium8te

Canasta said...

Nicole is not sexy. she's too awkward in my opinion. She's got so much work done that she can't really act anymore - her face is frozen which makes her look even more of an Ice Queen

caralw said...

"Feeling Sexy is a state of mind. When we are dressed to the nines don't we feel sexy? Why should Nicole be different? "

Jason Blue Eyes hit the nail on the head. This post was unnecessary, based on that quote. Maybe Enty is a minion of Nicole and using reverse psychology. Seems to be working.

Nobody is opprobrium8ting me unless I give them permission first.

Amartel said...

Garsh, apparently, someone really feels the need to burn a witch ...
and I say that fully knowing that Nicole Kidman is probably a massive pain in the ass IRL. But they all are probably that way. And, for that matter, so is the person who wrote this post.

The great thing about this site is that the commentariat doesn't react like Pavlovian dogs to every amateurish cue.

Enty...you lost me at "excellent plastic surgeon"

Chris Jurgie said...

She's sexy like plastic is sexy. Call me weird, but I don't find plastic sexy.

Enty needs to get over hating Kidman. Every fucking post about Kidman is hateful. Get a fucking life already.

ian mcgrinty said...

Can anyone have an opinion but you? Seriously, replying to everyone that posts about Eyes Wide Shut. Sorry the world isn't catered to you.

TalksTooMuch said...

Yes, everyone can have an opinions but that Ian McGinty guy. Seriously, f*%_ that guy.

Seven of Eleven said...

@ian, well her name IS TalksTooMuch (LOL) and frankly, what do you care if she replies to any or every post about Eyes Wide Shut? May I recommend a Goopster Relaxation Brownie™? I'm sure catering is available.

TalksTooMuch said...

Thanks, seven, but whathisname is probably right, I DID get a little Rach-y there. I may deserve the opprobrium

omchill said...

Enty is on a roll with the Nikman hate

AKM said...

Not at all sexy in MOULIN ROUGE? No? Really? And the others listed, like TO DIE FOR and PRACTICAL MAGIC?

My favorite of Kubrick's will always be 2001: ASO. And I liked EWS, although I didn't LOVE it.

mialou said...

I think Enty is a closet Scientologist with all the Kidman hate.

V said...

I thought she was sexy in a trashy way in The Paperboy. A good movie if you roll with the fact it was a fucking hot mess.

Kubrick - my faves: Dr Strangelove/Paths of Glory/The Shining

jaariel said...

Is it ironic that the Choo shoe line is called "Cruise"? Considering that Tiny Tom wouldn't allow her to wear heels & here she is going gaga over these super high heels-- I'm sure that part must resonate with her.

I also loved her in To Die For. She transformed into another person completely in that role. And I also really enjoyed EWS. Plus her naked body was flawless. I find it a fascinating film & feel compelled to watch whenever I stumble across it. Wish it was playing right now since I'm confined to the house with a stress foot fracture.

Poor me, right? ��

Lizzie said...

Leave Nicole alone! I like her, and have no problems with her acting. Are we a bit snarky today Enties??

ian mcgrinty said...

Didn't mean to be harsh. Just think it's slightly unfair you condemn others for not having the same opinion.

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

@jasonblueeyes i got your back! also, totally agree with barry lyndon feelings. it was a stinker!

the first time i saw the shining, i just knew that there was something more. Kubrick, Lynch, DePalma, and Argento were the reasons i went to art school.

also, you could save yourself so much money by just watching those movies and reading biographies than going to film school.

**oh snap, i beginning to sound like jayden smith** HELP

TalksTooMuch said...

I was mostly joking, doesntgetthejokeguy

blue sky said...

Enty, you nailed Kidman. Someone who is truly sexy doesn't have to tell the world they are sexy. She has lost her acting ability and needs to retire. One flop after another isn't worth the time she is giving up with her little girls.

Amy Sliger said...

Disagree. She was sexy as hell in To Die For, Moulin Rouge, and Eyes Wide Shut.

ian mcgrinty said...

@bluesky She didn't say she was sexy!

ian mcgrinty said...

@TalksTooMuch

If you were joking, why did no one find it funny? Just admit it, you were hating and going slightly OTT.

MeanieRhysie said...

Jeebus H. Christ, Ian, re-effing-lax, would ya?

TalksTooMuch said...

@Dudewhoibetjustnevergetsthejoke: I mentioned several times I was OT (see above) and I'm prettttty sure I found it funny.

TalksTooMuch said...

That's all right Meanie. It would take more than Ian VonGrumpy Pants to bum me oot.

MeanieRhysie said...

What a thing to get his granny pants in a bunch about. Cripes. LOL

SophiaB said...

No he didn't.

Henriette said...

She was wooden in Eyes Wide Shut. Her and Tiny Terror had no chemistry whatsoever. I liked her in that movie where she was an ambitious weather girl.

KSierra said...

Whether she is "sexy" or not isn't an issue for me, people find different things "sexy", I just can't EVER picture her dancing on tables with a snake. I thought that was a HUGE stretch of the imagination, and honestly, not believable.
