Scrawny chicken neck.
I'll never understand why Nicole Kidman is considered beautiful. She is too thin. If she gained 20 lbs she might look human. As it is, she looks like a severely starved mannequin.

R9, I know you smoke marijuana to treat the symptoms of your glaucoma, but there's no reason to lace it with angel dust and cocaine.

I agree, R9. They are both amazingly beautiful women.
I don't want or expect an impersonation in this kind of role. Mimicking a person's looks and gestures instead of getting at the essence is shallow and never works.
I'm looking forward to the movie.

Coincidentally, Nicole's fugly BFF, Naomi Watts, is doing a poor imitation of Princess Diana in an entirely different biopic. It'll be fun to hear these common pieces of trash play aristocrats.

Amazing transformation for Kidman. She looks eerily like Nicole Kidman.

There has already been a Grace Kelly biopic, on the level of the ones on Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O, Liz & Dick etc - who likes or watches these fabrications? stay at home fraus maybe? I think It was Cheryl Ladd the last time round - is this going to be any better? and Nicole is too old and bland and looks nothing like Kelly.
|by Anonymous||reply 16||10/08/2012|
Cheryl Ladd was a godawful Grace Kelly, but more age-appropriate than Nicole.
Grace was a great beauty, Nicole, while attractive and glam, is NOT. I so would have picked an unknown actress in her late 20s/early 30s with a strong resemblance to Grace. This is as bad as Meryl Streep portraying Julia Child.

Grace Kelly was for sale to the highest bidder. The only reason she could arguably be seen as an "aristocrat" is that the highest bidder was the prince of a casino.

Was Grace really that beautiful and elegant, or was it more very good makeup and lighting?

No, she actually was that pretty. At least in the beginning. Near the end, she porked up from so much boozing and eating good French food.

January Jones looks more like Grace Kelly in my opinion. If she could manage a Brahmin accent she might be more believable in the role. I couldn't watch Hemingway and Gelhorn because of Kidman. The last time I thought Kidman was attractive was in the early nineties. Batman and To Die For. Beautiful eyes, alabaster skin and great hair. She looked so much better as a redhead.
|by Anonymous||reply 25||10/08/2012|
Grace Kelly owns that title, r24. Lana was more of a truck driver's dream. But in a good way:)
|by Anonymous||reply 26||10/08/2012|
Grace Kelly is overrated, in my opinion. She's pretty but also boring. She was blond, blue eyed and had great teeth. But what else can you say about her? There's nothing interesting about her face. If she hadn't married that prince she would have been long forgotten.
Also, I don't think that's from the movie. I saw it in a recent magazine photo shoot she did.

White, blond, blue-eyed and tiny-nosed is supposed to be enough, r27. We're supposed to stand in awe of any famous woman who meets those criteria. Haven't you seen the Most Beautiful Women threads on DL? Whiter than the Daughters of the American Revolution.

I've never watched any of them. OTOH, the ones mentioned seem they would be at least more interesting than the one they're planning for Steve McQueen.
Who should get a biopic treatment after Steve McQueen? Tony Danza? Hugh Beaumont? Ed McMahon? Jerry Vale? Jaye P. Morgan? Let's hear a few more suggestions.

I agree January Jones looks more like Grace Kelly; but January Jones cannot act at all and would be dreadful in the part. At least Nicole Kidman can act.
The perfect casting would have been Naomi Watts--she both looks like Kelly and is a superb actor.
|by Anonymous||reply 36||10/08/2012|
What's this movie going to be about? The marriage, or the early years in Monaco (her growing realization Rainier and the court were never going to let her act again, as she had assumed she could eventually when she married him, and that he was having affairs right and left), or the later years (the boozing, the reconcilation with Rainier, the fights with Caroline over her romantic partners)?
|by Anonymous||reply 37||10/08/2012|
They could do a thing where January Jones mimes the part and Nicole voices it, like in the musicals.

It's not about her entire life, R37. I think it takes place in the early 60s and it's about some behind the scenes politics at Monaco.
January Jones has kind of a coarse face and doesn't resemble Kelly as much as people say she does.

I think Nic can pull it off. She is a way more gifted actress than people give her credit for.
Having said that, I'm surprised the producers didn't seek out the other classical blondes du jour, such as January Jones, Malin Akerman or Juno Temple.

January Jones does look more like Grace Kelly than Nicole Kidman, but like others have said she can't act. The only reason she is any good on Mad Men is because she IS Betty Draper, I don't think there's much acting going on there with her and that part.

I've met Nicole Kidman. This was a while ago, maybe 2001 or 2002. I have never found her remotely interesting or attractive on film. In real life she was stunning. I couldn't even believe it.
I've met many celebrities and I can't think of one who looked so much better in real life.

I guess my point was that saying Kidman isn't attractive is sort of ridiculous. Has she fucked up her looks? Sure. Has she aged out of them? Perhaps. But she's stunning, or was.
