Sophia Loren is my role model

"When I get to Hollywood, I want to be just like Sophia!"

Nicole Kidman has admitted in the latest People Magazine 'Reader's Questions' segment that Sophia Loren is her role model. In her own words: "
I just worked with Sophia Loren [in Nine], and she is so gorgeous and she has such grace. I use her as a role model.”

You may recall she made similar comments about Lauren Bacall after working with her in the horrid movie Birth. Just as well Lauren didn't get sucked in to the crawling job. Nicole is a crawler, yes?

The full list of 'Reader's Questions' are as follows:

If you could work a normal job, what would you want it to be?
I’d love to be an interior designer. I just love walking into a room and redoing it. When my girlfriends are buying an apartment, they’ll always ask me to come along because I’m going ‘You can knock that wall down, just put a little bit of paint there.’

What is your favorite new thing that Sunday Rose has learned?
She now points at anything and goes, ‘Bug.’ That’s her word. We were in the hotel room the other day, and there was a little sprinkler up in the corner of the room. She kept pointing at it and going ‘bug!’ Keith had to hold her up and prove to her that it wasn’t a bug.

What mundane chores do you like to do?
Strangely enough, I love putting clothes in the washing machine. I would always do the washing growing up – that was one of my jobs. And I quite like ironing shirts.

What’s your biggest quirk?
Keith and I love coffee. I love the foam more than the coffee. I will go and order a cappuccino and say, make it all foam and very little coffee. They know me now at the Starbucks in Nashville.

How did you overcome your shyness?
I think a lot of it has to do with just getting comfortable in my own skin. That’s part of getting older. It’s okay to be 5 ft. 11 in. and all of the things that I used to feel awkward about. I now feel comfortable. A lot of that comes with being loved.

How do you cope working in an industry that refuses to let women age naturally and gracefully?
Well, I live in Tennessee so it is slightly different than living in L.A. I just worked with Sophia Loren [in Nine], and she is so gorgeous and she has such grace. I use her as a role model.

Your husband has several tattoos, would you ever consider getting one?
No. I am tattooless.

Do you like to cook?
I am a terrible cook. I cook chicken for Keith, and it’s always dry. I’m a much better person to cook for because I love food and I will eat almost anything.

Here is one question they wouldn't publish:
Question: Hi Niccy. Can you tell me why you lie about all the work you've had done to your face and chest. Didn't your parents tell you it is naughty to lie?

Sophia is her role model, huh? DOes that mean that sometime soon we can expect Nicole to be more charming and less self-focussed? Sophia is not a famewhore. First lesson Nicole if you wanna take after Sophie. Stop being a camera and fame whore. And stop injecting that shit into your face. Sophia uses creams, not botox.

HA! So kidman's rather lame and clownish Pr has gone from the ridiculous to the mundane? She'd like to be an interior designer...she loves to do laundry...she's a terrible cook? Oh yeah, the "common touch" will save her career! Truth is no one could keep track of who she is "supposed" to be...as it keeps changing with every film PR!

Choice said...

Exactly Maclen - the truth has no meaning to Gran. She just makes it up as she goes along, depending on the interview. I guess by the reader's type of questions, that some people out there still lap up any crap that pours out of her fake lips.

How do you spell bullshit? N-I-C-O-L-E

Doctor Do Little said...

What a banal interview! Jeez! Didn't anybody think to ask her some real questions:-
(1) How are you coping with your mid-life crisis?
(2) Have you ever thought about taking acting lessons?
(3) Do you have Asthma as you are always so breathy and whisper in all your films?
(4) How many wigs and hairpieces do you own?
(5) Are you biodegradeable?
(6) What exactly IS your definition of 'natural'?
(7) Do you know what 'flop' means?
(8) Do you think that all this idiotic celebrity stuff contributes to society?
(9) Do you think that your forehead will ever move again?
(10) When are you going to retire?

SHE IS NOT CRAWLER! NICOLE IS NOT. WHY DO YOU SAY THAT! Just because she admire older lady stars mean she is showing them the respect. Sophia Loren is good role model for all, not for Nicole only.

ANON 8:24 -
Understand? Do I understand what? That you're crazy and I'm not? Sure I do.

Doctor Do Little.
Excellent questions there, thanks for the laugh!

She loves coffee but only the foam.Is she for real? Real coffee doesn't have foam. She's probably afraid there might be calories. So she prefers air. Fitting actually.

Laura said...

What a shame she didn't become an interior decorator. She might have had some talent at that!

Nicole is turning into Sophia Loren w/ all the plastic surgery she's getting! There is no way that Sophia is just using creams -- her face doesn't move - just like Nicole's!

It's funny that she compared herself to Sophia as part of her answer to the "aging gracefully" question -- I'm sure, as you said, that part of it is just crawling, but maybe it is also some kind of subconscious way of admitting her botox, etc. use.

TT said...

Plus another thing is that some of Sophia Loren's tactics have been very similar to Nicole's ---

Very similar to Nicole's see-through dress incident.

Anon 12 am, welcome to her world of ad lib bull shit. The problem as we'd grown wary and sick of her over the years with her spur of the moment, nonsensical replies...similar to a young child gibberish...and still continuing into her 40's. It really shows the extent of her view of life, (low intellect) and trivialized existence. This is the true Gran, the latex, wanna be barbie who had fooled us with her shenanigan long enough to steal an Academy Award then all hell broke loose because she didn't have to play actress anymoh! She's the moron she always was!

Do you know if Nicole Kidman reads your Blog. She might learn a thing or two about how to improve her image.

I think she may have her people reading Maclen's comments because from time to time we witness her acting on them. Coincidence? The jury's still out. I am watching and waiting. Myself, I'm waiting for our guy to lay in a completely ridiculous idea and watch it be used.
I just don't know how I will tell it from the rest of the madness.

Doctor Do Little-Loved the post!!!!

Choice said...

I'm not sure if Nicole reads this Blog or others as she apparently can't read, and has admitted she doesn't google her name (yeah, right!).
As Hoosierlady was saying,she may have her people reading Blogs. There have been times wheere she seems to have acted on things that people have said here. Or perhaps her advisors think like we do LOL.

"I think she may have her people reading Maclen's comments because from time to time we witness her acting on them. Coincidence? The jury's still out."

Clearly, hoosier, inept team kidman is in scramble mode these days...seeing how they would clearly see the writing on the wall that kidman's days of collecting those 10's of millions of dollars paychecks are over! Do you really expect them to believe they are now going to cash in on a kidman indie flick at the box office! And clearly if the "yes men and women" are now clearly to blame for her failed career, as I commented at UM, they would surely look to the other side of the argument for a new strategy. As clearly, there is alot...a huge amount of "substancial analysis and interpretative data" tossed around the NK Journey and UM blogs on the results of kidman's failed career and her PR tactics! And I'm quite sure THEY are clearly "checking it out" now!

Now she tells us she is a terrible cook. Wasn't it just a few years ago she was talking about having her family for the holidays. She said they had fun in the kitchen, and that all the Kidman women cook. Also, after she married Keith, she said she was having fun cooking southern dishes. So does she cook or not? I wish she'd make up her mind.

Choice said...

ANON 2:40 - I agree, I wish she would make up her mind. I reckon she just makes it up all as she goes along during an interview. But she is too stupid to realise that some people remember what she said at a previous time. Just goes to show why people say she lies all the time.


She reads the blogs. Wouldn't you if you were so anal about your image? I see she finally got the red out of her bloodshot eyes a/people were mentioning it on blogs the world over and she quit the bleached blond hair.

Just like Gwyneth Paltrow, her idol is Grace Kelly. Gotta find photos from Gwyneth's 10/7 birthday party with Nicole in attendance. The two Grace Kelly wanna-bees together...

Other recent lies exposed by both Keith and Nicole. She said she would never sing in front of Keith. They both have said they would never do a record together because they keep their careers separate. But at the American Music Awards Keith said a duet is not out of the question. They enjoy singing together at home all the time. In the past he has also talked about singing with her and her family at Christmas around the piano. They really disappoint me. She is turning Keith into as big of a liar as she is.
