First Shot of Nicole Kidman As Grace Kelly

She looks like Nicole Kidman in a perfume ad.

As if a mannequin was damaged in a bargain basement fire and repaired with plastic wrap and Cheez-Whiz.

She looks like Nicole Kidman.

She looks a little too plasticized.

by Anonymousreply 410/08/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 510/08/2012

She don't even look like her, word.

by Anonymousreply 610/08/2012

While she looks okay in the photo, she doesn't resemble Grace Kelly at all.

by Anonymousreply 710/08/2012

I take it that's a still showing Her Serene Highness AFTER the car accident.

She is unbelievably beautiful. Both of them. Rare angelic quality.

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.

by Anonymousreply 1110/08/2012

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.

She is way too old to play the young Grace Kelly.

by Anonymousreply 1310/08/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 1410/08/2012

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

by Anonymousreply 1510/08/2012

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 Anonymousreply 1610/08/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 1710/08/2012

sigh... really? we're gonna run with "nicole kidman is just not beautiful"? do you get that much of a rush from pointless and rather silly contrarianism? she looks very much like grace kelly.

by Anonymousreply 1810/08/2012

The smoke from your crack pipe is blurring your vision R18. She looks NOTHING like Grace.

by Anonymousreply 1910/08/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 2010/08/2012

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

by Anonymousreply 2110/08/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 2210/08/2012

That was pre-paparazzi days, R21. It was much easier to maintain an illusion.

by Anonymousreply 2310/08/2012

Who do we think exemplified the blonde ice queen look more? Grace Kelly or Lana Turner?

by Anonymousreply 2410/08/2012

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 Anonymousreply 2510/08/2012

Grace Kelly owns that title, r24. Lana was more of a truck driver's dream. But in a good way:)

by Anonymousreply 2610/08/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 2710/08/2012

R5 she was truly stunning in her prime, the Moulin Rouge/The Others period. Then she fucked it all up.

by Anonymousreply 2810/08/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 3110/08/2012

Rosamund Pike would have been a better choice.

Zac Efron will be playing Princess Stephanie.

Zac isn't butch enough, r34.

Yup, that's Nicole Kidman not even made up to look like Grace Kelly.

This could be the next Mommie Dearest!

by Anonymousreply 3510/08/2012

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 Anonymousreply 3610/08/2012

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 Anonymousreply 3710/08/2012

They could do a thing where January Jones mimes the part and Nicole voices it, like in the musicals.

by Anonymousreply 3810/08/2012

Naomi Watts is not beautiful enough and too old to play Grace. Hell, she's too old to play Diana!

Oh, don't worry about that.

by Anonymousreply 4510/08/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 4610/08/2012

elizabeth banks could pull this off. kidman sucks as kelly.

by Anonymousreply 4910/08/2012

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.

Kidman has been trying to look like Kelly on and off for about the last 10 years. She is somewhat similar looking, but she still can't pull it off.

by Anonymousreply 5610/09/2012

January Jones? No way, Kidman definitely is closer to Kelly than Jones.

by Anonymousreply 5710/09/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 6410/09/2012

She did look good in 2001. She does not look good now.

by Anonymousreply 6510/09/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 6610/09/2012

Grace was in her 50s when she Nicole is not necessarily "too old" to play the part.

WOW, You people are so mean. She doesn't have to look exactly like Grace Kelly. She is beautiful in her own way just like the rest of us are beautiful in our own way. Don't be so mean!

I've always pitied poor Nicole Kidman. Always chasing that Nordic beauty that will always elude her. She's a mottled, frizzy haired redhead with drooping eyelids who can't accept herself as is. She reminds me of Michael Jackson in this way.

by Anonymousreply 7210/18/2012

Cate Blanchett doesn't look like Katharine Hepburn either.

But so what?

by Anonymousreply 7310/18/2012

The plot:

[quote]Grace Kelly, age 33 and having given up her acting career to focus on being a full time princess, uses her political maneuvering behind the scenes to save Monaco while French Leader Charles de Gaulle and Monaco’s Prince Rainier III are at odds over the princi¬pality’s standing as a tax haven.

I'm not buying Nicole as a 33 year old Grace. Nicole is looking OLD.

She was on Ellen suddenly after 8 years and threw up pictures of her young kids and pics from her Grace Kelly movie. As if people had missed her. She is so much like Tom Cruise now, but female. Frightening woman.

by Anonymousreply 7601/11/2013

Kidman is lovely, and a wonderful actress.

I think she could have played successfully some of the great women's roles of the 1940s. Imagine Kidman instead of Kate Winslet in "Mildred Pierce."

NK was plugging an Australian vitamin company with Ellen. Everyone in the audience got Botox and a trip to Australia.

There's a lot of photoshop in that picture of Kidman. She's very pretty but not that flawless anymore.
