Nicole gets licked

Four Australian actors were named the 2009 Australia Post Australian Legends, and will feature on a series of eight stamps. The actors include Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchette, Russell Crowe and Geoffrey Rush. Each actor features on two stamps - one a portrait and one featuring them in one of their films. Australia Post said that the actors were tremendous ambassadors for Australia on the world stage. All actors were thrilled to receive the honour and to see themselves on stamps. Nicole responded by saying "I want my children to live here at certain times of their life and see how wonderful it is".

I imagine that with the release of Nicole Kidman stamps, emailing will suddenly become the most preferred method of communication in this country. Why is Nicole considered a tremendous ambassador by Australia Post? All shes does is make flop after flop movie, and in the process embarrass her fellow Australians. Please let on if you know the reason. And why does she want her children to live here sometime, when she won't herself. Unlike Cate, Russell and Geoffrey who all live here, Nicole wouldn't dream of it. That's why she hasn't lived here since 1989.
Another question for you. Why did our former Prime Minister twice add her to the Australian of the Year nomination list when more deserving people should have come before her? He would ramble on about her contribution to film (that is her job for Pete's sake, do the rest of us get a nomination for our work?), and her charity work (this is once in a blue moon, when she visits Sydney Children's Hospital - these are just photo opportunities for her). Any clues?

Ha! speaking of the previous thread on winslet...lainey has a hilarious piece on just that...

http://www.laineygossip.com/Kate_Winslet_takes_over_role_in_The_Reader_from_Nicole_Kidman_and_earns_Oscar_nomination.aspx?CatID=0&CelID=0

Remember when…

"Nicole Kidman was supposed to star in The Reader?
Would today have been the same if you replace Kate Winslet with Granny Freeze.
Heh..Oscar nomination day, everyone is being so gracious.
So let’s not.
Hanna Schmitz, who spends a large part of the first quarter of The Reader completely naked, was supposed to have been played by Kidman. Seriously, it would not have worked. Kate’s relationship with the young David Kross was uncomfortable but believable. With the Gran, it would have been absurd.
And while Gran’s hiding out in Nashville trying to forget her last Fail, Kate is the golden girl of the awards circuit, now in a tight race for Best Actress with Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway.
Good things happen when Nicole backs out.
Brad Pitt met Angelina Jolie when Freezy exited Mr & Mrs Smith. Remember when?"

Yeah, pretty much the consensus...

Hey Maclen,
Yes saw that Lainey article earlier and added it to the previous post not long ago (at the bottom of it). She is spot on.

Hey choice, I thought I had posted a comment previous to the one on the thread...did I forget to post it? Just checking...
...well as for winslet...not only did she overshadow kidman by gettng the oscar nod for the role kidman passed on...but now it seems blancette has outdone kidman over the oz stamp...

Cate Blanchett: “I'm going to be licked by millions of Australians and I can't wait.”

... quick...funny reply by blancette...and certainly in contrast to a pretentious and stuffy reponse by kidman...IF she had anything to say about it! Kidman who is no doubt still hiding out in some "undisclosed location" in shame...probably hasnt even been told about it by her inept peeps... but then didnt you point out, choice, that blancette is still an aussie resident...and kidman now laughingly considers herself a "tennessean" now...she could care less about those aussie officials and their accolades.

Hi Maclen
You might be referring to your reply to my post on Urban Myths ie. the one where you say "at this stage of her career getting a stamp ...". Your posts to this Blog are all here.

Kidman apparently can't accept the sticky nomination because she is in Italy doing scenes for Nine. If the truth be known, she'd preferred not to step back here until the dust settles over her 'misinterpreted' comments on her own acting ability in that film ... what was it called, Oztralia?

Hi Maclen

I just must have not posted it, choice, in that post I was answering your question in your blog entry..."Another question for you. Why did our former Prime Minister twice add her to the Australian of the Year nomination list when more deserving people should have come before her?"... and basically my response was that even in politics these days, its all about "publicity". In lalaland, publicity is traded and bartered like money or credit...just as the oz tourism board would give the baz $50 mil to attach the country to his film...(which is why the baz called the film "Australia"... to quite a few critical mentions to that from critics and pundits) As for kidman being in Italy, it must be totally off the radar...i havent seen anything at all on that...and as I seem to recall, I could have sworn late last year reading that there was a wrap dinner with the cast of Nine...are we now looking at "reshoots" for Nine? And not too surprising kidman would be involved.

I am planning on buying every single copy of the Nicole Kidman stamp, then burning the lot of them in a special ritual. No Australian will then have to suffer seeing them on envelopes. Hey Choice, I really like your new Blog Header.

...ps..

just an update....seems the little groundhog has reared her head...seems yesterday kidman was in nyc...

http://www.wireimage.com/ItemListings.aspx?igi=350419&nbc1=1

...seems the story is, kidman was yanked from her hideout when jackman, who was set to present to the baz at this G'Day Australia Black Tie Gala had to back out at the last minute...so kidman presented instead...seems kidman was not set to appear... because she was in hiding. Looks like kidman had a special "tune up" in her seclusion...she looks especially "shiney" in the forehead...and not to mention extra pastry and pale as a cadaver. If you look at most of the pics with the baz, the same expression seems to be "frozen' onto her face. She also looks even thinner...the stess of the flop must not be laying too well on her.

Hi Maclen,
It was in an Oz paper where I read she going to Italy to complete Nine, and would be unable to come to Oz to collect her stamp album. I also noted that someone from NKU mentioned it too. Reshoots for Nine will be necessary because of her bad acting.

Thanks for that link. I read something yesterday about her attendance at the G'Day NY Dinner but couldn't find much on it. She does indeed look thinner, but what amazes me is those ridiculous wig/hair extensions. She must think people are stupid. Just the other week we see her stringy thin shoulder length hair when she's going to the doctors (the photo where she looks like Mickey Rourke)and then people are expected to believe that her 'beautiful straight really long hair' is for real at the NY dinner. Some people will believe it you know. Everything about her is fake, even the smile standing next to Bazz. Its no wonder people can't stand her anymore. And as for Bazz, let's not forget he said he wont work with her again (even if his reasons were misinterpreted).

Yeah, choice, you have a very relevent point about her hair...sure, her wigs looks plastic and perfect on the red carpet...but when she goes "commando" in those public papparatz photos...looking very frizzed out and frazzled, she doesnt help herself at all. I mean, more and more people are getting their intertainment news and gossip online, and the contrast of her hair...botox look and her hideous lips... is getting noticed more and more. Imagine the every growing online teens and tweens audience getting a load of kidmans "mickey roarke" look...she is less than appealing and they will certainly take a pass on her zombie look. As annonymous 5:45 PM pointo out your new blog header...that center picture shows the extent of her facial "adjustments!"
