Nicole back to doing commercials

Remember the sparkling soda drink commercial in India? Remember the Chanel 69 commercial she did before they dropped her? Well folks, fame-whore attention seeking Nicole is back doing commercials in an attempt to broaden her international horizons. Not content with cameos in movies (e.g. the new Jennifer Aninston/Jason Sandler flick), Nicole has just starred in a commercial promoting a new shopping mall in Brazil. Yes, Brazil! Would you agree that she has had her lips pumped up again?

Check it out here and let us know if the lips, hair and whatever have had a helping hand AGAIN!

...she really looks like a moron, one of the low pathetically plastic surgeried middle-aged "Housewives of (City)" b*tches that bicker and discuss totally catty and crap subjects. What exactly had happened to the refined, intelligent thespian artist of over a decade ago now? Yes, she had her lips done, as has had other areas of her body that are exposed (heaven only knows where else.) This is a culminated looks of another Meg Ryan and others that make you want to puke. A middle-aged broad wants to have the lips of nubile pouty lips of teens to early twentysomthing at the most to have the kind of lolita appeal intended for the pedophiles.................

Choice said...

Very good points Whatchasayy. The reference to Meg Ryan, so true! So sad these women cant age gracefully. This advert made me wanna throw up, especially the part when the car window goes down and people on the street are looking at her - as if to say "wow, here comes the famous movie star". What is the bet she demanded that scene be included in this stupid commercial.

I think she looks great. You didn't mention that she has a movie this year called 'Rabbit Hole' that is already garnering Oscar Buzz. I've read the words 'captivating', 'remarkable' and 'one of the finest performance of the year' about Nicole's performance. And tomorrow, she starts shooting a big movie 'Trespass' in Louisiana with Nicolas Cage. During the filming, she'll go to the Toronto Film Festival and to the Rome Film Festival to promote 'Rabbit Hole'. And after that, in February 2011, she'll have a movie for HBO with Clive Owen directed by Phillip Kaufman (director of 'Quills' with Kate Winslet). If you want to talk about her work, you need to mention all her projects. Otherwise, you're a liar. I hope my post will appear on your blog...

Choice said...

Anon 6.58pm - You are obviously new to this Blog, or haven't even bothered to check out our earlier posts. YES, WE ALREADY KNOW about Rabbit Hole and Trespass; there are in fact blog entries for these films. Rabbit Hole was made ages ago, and we did a post for it way back in early 2009. That sweetie, is how long that film has been in post production. If it is as good as you say, why has it been so slow to get any distribution. You may not realise that Kidman has been box office poison for as long as Margaret Thatcher was in power. I hope for your sake that her acting in Rabbit Hole is as good as you say. I mean it couldn't be any worse that it has been in the last 10 films she has done. Are you trying to tell us that Nicole has now stopped using botox, and that we might see some facial expression at long last??? Please elaborate for us.

Don't get your hopes up on Trespass either. She and that other actor Nicolas Cage are both desperate for some box office triumph. Good luck to you on getting your wishes.

To finish off, why wouldn't we publish your comment? It was hilarious and needs to be shared.

Laura said...

Anon @ 6:58pm. You are delusional. If you are such a Kidman fan, you would realise how dreadful her film career has been the last 9 years. She cannot act plain and simple. She is too focussed on her looks. A high school dropout does not make a good actor.

Have you seen Rabbit Hole yet? Was she able to move her face at all? Like Choice was saying to you, she can't move it because she's a frozen stick.

whatchasayy said...

This brainless middle-aged freak always looked mannequin-ish, and even in the latest pictures here...and realized why, because of all that anti-aging, preserving, embalming fluid in her for over a decade now. Okay so she's purchased a 8 - 16 year old (lame idiot that this crap is, just doesn't measure anything in terms of time, age, society, etc. appropriateness) lips, had surgically altered that super gummy mouth...hey, whatever happened to her botoxed out forehead or in the words of S Osborne, "a ****ing flatscreen TV"??? Her bottom is sagging or middle-aged fat too. Oh yeah a scary skeletal bony frame with gulf balls (or were these inflated to baseballs now?) I GET IT, she IS an money-poured in AGING MANNEQUIN INDEED!!!!!!

cricket said...

Boy her commercials are as awful as her movies. This is almost as bad as that horrible Chanel mess.

Anonymous said...

Anon @ 6:58pm, you must read again, because both little reviews are from hoaxs. One of them was from a crew member of the film and he recognize he invented all.

First there's only two reviews and most of them without a name or a link behind. Also we haven't yet test screeners, trailer or new photos. Plus: the studio has many Oscar contenders like "Black Swan", "Never Let me Go", "Conviction" and "Snow Flower"...

Choice said...

Cricket - I'm totally with you on that one. The Chanel one sucked and not just because of her pout. She couldn't act the part of a stunning woman. I notice the annoying pout is back in the new commercial. Brazilians obviously aren't aware that Nicole is box office poison.

Anon 4:56 - good points. Very hard to find authentic reliable reviews for RABBIT HOLE. The fact it has been sitting on the shelf so long is a big worry. I cannot imagine her playing a grieving mother. They should have stuck with my script where she actually played a rabbit.

blue sky said...

I've read the words 'captivating', 'remarkable' and 'one of the finest performance of the year' about Nicole's performance.

Wasn't the exact same thing said about her in "Australia"?

Anonymous said...

I'm Anon 4:10 pm, it's gut-wrenching to watch it out of huge pathos for her...pathetic and so sad, as reality couldn't be so farther from the truth She should end up being the waitress or dishwasher in that picture of Avenue of Broken Dreams with Elvis, Marilyn, J dean, etc.

Choice said...

Blue Sky:
If I recall, there were little or none good reviews about her performance in Australia. Her wooden style, frozen face spoilt it for audiences world-wide.

The good reviews about Rabbit Hole are apparently a hoax, and probably generated by her new agent to drum u some business.

Im the first to admit that Nicole has had some OK moments in some of her films, but as others have pointed out, she was just acting her self.

Anonymous said...

On this blog site cover photos of mutton in black leotards in her 40's -- she's vamped out over a decade or two far too late. This is like your aunt or mom on the cover; or the geriatric crowd curious to see what a woman in the generation they left behind looks like. Neither sexy nor easy on the eyes, it's pathetic and freaky. Interesting none of her or the magazine tried to stop this or before this s*** hits the fan.

Laura said...

I like the new Blog header pictures. How desperate was she to dress up in those leotards. Might have been able to get away with it at 25, but 43? Jeez Louise, get with it darling!

A440 said...

And don't forget: those photos went through Photoshop! God only knows what they looked like pre-editing.

whatchasayy said...

Her performance in Nine, as short as it was, was panned as too stiff by the critics and people in the industry who can provide such professional assessments. Now they're saying (google it brings up a lot on her talent) she has no talent, that she just acts herself in her movies. What were they thinking when they gave her that token Oscar. I agree wholeheartedly, in fact her mentality is exemplified in one of her "natural" pictures shown on this blog site with (GROTESQUELY FAKE) pouty lips on the left -- on 42 or 43 year old, and doesn't see that this is weird. Seems to be quick to adapt to all young fashion fads. With obvious lack of insight and common sense, of course has no clue what real acting is -- and that's not even going to her frozen physique. She has to give up that at 43, she's truly middle-aged, that kind of beauty seeking attention of beautiful young actresses has long been over for her, and at this point she's just a laughable freak!

Anonymous said...

The commercial really made me throw up. Does she really believe that she can get people interested in a shopping mall? Whatever happened to this cow retiring after the baby came along. Did she not say she would? Can you tell me why she still get film offers despite having loads of flops, and not having any acting ability? anyone here see the appalling THe Invasion?

Anonymous said...

Anon 9:06pm, yeah and was thinking what happened to the plot, what part of that was truly sci-fi, ONCE AGAIN, her self-conscious facial focused (frozen) performance (call this ScFF), blah blah. In ColdMoun she'd displayed absolutely no character, could've easily been played by a much younger naturally pretty startlet with no acting skills. In Betwitched, ScFF performance again, instead of playing spunky do-gooder Sam with magic, this was very self-focused and sensitive that belonged in a psychological wishy-washy drama film, not comedy. In Golden Compass that movie could have easily played without her character, again, facial/appearance focused, stiff, felt and remembered nothing at all of her character, blah blah. Let us not even go to Australia. She really botched that one. Liked Margo actually, whoever the director was, he/she did maintain the plot even if it meant cutting her scenes and moving on, to me the plot was kept intact. Her scenes moved in and out and cut quickly to move on, it seemed like that. Her face is surgeried up ugly, but even that didn't detract from the storyline for me...all in all ALL her other movies are craps. Now that everybody caught on and are coming out speaking straight about her performance, couldn't even watch Peacekeeper the other day without wincing. Yep it's that ScFF again with whispery throaty voice deliveries... It must have been fascinating to somebody back then, but then this high-school dropout keeps this up well into 40's instead of evolving to fine acting, you would have thought after Oscars, we get displays of her "real" mentality at Hilton/Lohan/other skanks mindset, like anything else the cover is blown, reality comes back, WOW, was she lucky to have been shielded by her off-screen life/scientology and weird husband taking major bunt of criticisms that were truly hers and her making!

A440 said...

Why she's still being offered gigs is inexplicable. However, it's clear that she's doing as many projects as possible now. (Forget about that pesky promise to retire!) With the prop baby not yet in school, Our Nic still has a window of time to hustle for her career.

What I want to see is how completely berserk and ape-shit she'll go when she simply must put her career on the back burner in order to keep the baby in school. She'll pull her hair out by their colored roots. She's never had to put someone else first--she'll never be able to do it.

Anonymous said...

a440 - I'm surprised by your harsh, brutal comments.you're quick to knock her movies, but she is has done some great films. have you not seen malice, the hours, to die for and 'the others'. none of these would have been good without her. i suggest you go to your local video store and hire these films. And then you can report back to us all on your changed opinions. You are mean!

Choice said...

A440 - happy to reply on your behalf to that previous comment ... or will leave it to you to assist this person in getting a reality check. What I will say is that many of us here have better things to do with our money than rent out Freezo's movies.

whatchasayy said...

A440, what school concerns? with both parents as high school dropouts, it's likely learning is about lohan/hilton interest level at home, that poor adopted PR baby's any inherited intellectual curiosities will likely be stumped and not nurtured or encouraged for normal mental growth. Wouldn't be surprised at all if she's grown totally focused on T&A, getting unattainable man (her adopted dad's latest music inspiration in his 40's! about getting an unattainable girl, yeah, blah, about her), and knows only how to muck about in fluffsville...and will stay there well into 40's and likely beyond -- like her adopted parents...pathetic and sad

A440 said...

I'm being hectored by some poster who hasn't the spine to use a legit handle... Is that it, Anon 4:44?

Here's a news flash: some of Her Ladyship's earlier works were halfway decent--Portrait and To Die For come to mind off the top of my head. But when Queenie started to believe her own hype, her technique deteriorated badly. She's become a wooden, shrill caricature of an actress. (Want truly fine acting? Scope out Winslett, Blanchett or Davis.) Add in her uber-addiction to Botox and to lying thru her teeth ("To be completely honest, I'm completely natural!"), and you have a woman who has no credibility. She's an artistic cautionary tale.

I write this because I HAVE SEEN most of her films.

And don't get me started on how grossly Keith's music has deteriorated since he hooked up with His Beautiful, Beautiful Meal Ticket. What they've done to his creativity I wouldn't do to a dog.

So I'll stand my ground. She's frantic for gigs now only because she must slow down soon to accommodate the baby. And this is exactly what she doesn't want to do--ever. Go back to her statement soon after the birth where she declared she must do more than simply be a mother to a child. This after she swore up, down and sideways that having a marriage and a child was all she wanted and that once the fairy tale came true, she'd retire.

She routinely contradicts herself. In my neck of the woods, we peg it as pure bullshit. Plain and simple.

(With thanks to Choice and whatchasayy for your quick and kind defense!)

mikki said...

A440, shes not slowing down by choice. Shes taking what she can get because the offers have stopped coming in and no one is taking her calls. Thats the reason for hiring a new manager. To get her work. Sunday will never have priority over her career. She has nannies to care for the child.

Choice said...

Mikki -
Nicole said ages ago she doesn't have nannies but we know that isn't true. While she has more time now on her hands, the last thing she wants to do is canteen duty at Sundae's play group.

whatchasayy said...

Mikki writes "...shes not slowing down by choice. Shes taking what she can get because the offers have stopped coming in...."
Yes it is quite a fall if you think about it, pitching for an Indian beverage and a Brazilian shopping mall whether foreign or not, the kind of projects an in-demand actress would likely pass up without giving a glance...what's next? more other under-developed or developing country ads...didn't you know? That's her niche & specialty now

hoosierlady said...

Nicole competes with no one.

Except Katie

Choice said...

Whatchasay - yes, definitely a fall from grace to be doing commercials. In her eyes though, she would see it as broadening her horizons.

Have you seen Sunset Boulevarde? I've often felt that is how Nicole will end up. She'll still feel that she is a star even after the flame has well and truly gone out (like now).

Nicole Mary Kidman fan said...

I thought she looked beautiful in the commercial. I dont care if she uses stuff in her face or lips. For all you know she probably did this commercial for free, or gave all the money to charity.
She is a kind person who does this sort of thing.

Anon 4:44pm writes: she is has done some great films. have you not seen malice, the hours, to die for and 'the others' Hey, malice was more true acting effort for this mutton than anything else she had done since. To die for was tightly scripted, her scenes were almost vignettes requiring no character development and real acting to sustain a character (no brainer photo shots.) The others were also tightly scripted (but at times to me her acting was brittle and erratic) but this was about a plot and the twist it followed so we could forget her acting. She only had to play a concerned mom, and that she did with a lot of ranting and repetive over the top cliche caring for the kids but I felt nothing for her...don't know, her acting seemed to me provoked little sympathy for her character. The hours too she played V Woolfe as a brittle "girl" as opposed to intelligent, introspective, turmoiled, thought provoking mature writer. A lot of repetitive ranting and all so little substance. What had happened to AA that year, heh??? So here she is today, a fitful ending -- her performance is finally labeled for what it truly is, too stiff, doesn't know how to act and her performance track record as box office poison.

Nicole Mary Kidman fan said...

Anon 5:56 - Do you honestly believe that The Brazilian Mall owners would have approached Nicole if she couldn't add value to their marketing? They know a good actress when they see one. People open doors for this lady. People look up to her, want to be her. Imitate her fashion sense, and even copy her hair styles. You obviously haven't seen her finest films. People pay attention when Nicole is on screen. Think about it. That bastard on here who criticised her performance in To Die For hasn't got a clue. She had incredible character development.

Anonymous said...

NK Fan, maybe Brazil is scraping the barrel, is good at picking up bargain basement and a huge markdown actors. It's a little known secret NK hasn't commanded the kind of asking rate in millions for almost a decade now. Brazil and other developing countries can't afford to be too picky, operate on tight budget and settle for what they can get (hey, just one blogger opinion exercising the freedom to express, alright....)

Anonymous said...

"She had incredible character development."

NK Fan don't make me laugh. I accept Nicole Kidman has good films like "Dogville" and "Margot at the Wedding" but even in those she was overshadowed by her co-stars. Paul Bettany and Patricia Clarkson were miles better than her and Jennifer Jason leigh rounds circles. "To die For" is by far her MOST OVERRATED performance. She didn't do nothing but look plastic and whinny. Which character developpment? She's only a ferious b*tch with bigger ambitions. Big deal...

There were better comedic performances in that year like her fellow aussie Toni Collette in "muriel's wedding". She combines vulnerability, comedic timmick and joy in only few scenes.

Anonymous said...

BTW, I love Brazil, First I'm Latin American and he country is beautiful and there's hot and kind people. Even with the crime issues is a wonderful place.

Also there are excellent brazilian actors: Fernanda Montenegro and her daughter Fernanda Torres (One of the youngest winners in Cannes), Wagner Moura, Caio Blat, Joao miguel, Alice Braga...

But this ad is awful, but again maybe Kidman is cheaper than Kate Winslet or Penelope Cruz. at least it's better than the disgutting indian ad.

Nicole Mary Kidman fan said...

Anonymous 9:29am of 13 Sept:

She was nominated for a golden globe for her performance in 'to die for'. they wouldn't have given her that if she had no character development. Have you even seen the film? she was totally amazing in it. funny, sad, a range of emotions i felt watching her in this film. we are not talking about toni collette here OK? She's a hopeless actress anyway. muriel's wedding wasn't even funny. If you think toni is such a good actress, how come she hasn't won an oscar like nicole? Yeah, think about it!!!! what is your name by the way. It will make it easier for me to address you.

Nicole Mary Kidman fan said...

Choice: this blog is in very bad taste towards Nicol. Can you please change many of the photos as they do not show how truly beautiful she is. I particulary dont like the one under the heading. that was taken on a bad day for her, and you should put a more flattering one up.

Choice said...

NK Fan ...
Um, I don't think so! But thanks for the many laughs.

Anonymous said...

NK Fan the Globes give them to awful actors/performances before... Examples Sandra Bullock for "the Blind Side", Neil Diamond, or even Pia Zadora (One of the worst actresses in Hollywood)

Jajaja, Toni Collette hopeless actress. She won the EMMY for "United States of Tara" and she's having success by the show. Also, Muriel's Wedding is declared one of the top twenty comedic films by the EW audience. If Muriel's Wedding wasn't funny, why the director will do My best Friend's Wedding? or even Toni Collette having an excellent career in films like "Velvet Goldmine", "The sixth Sense", "Little Miss Sunshine" or "japanese Story". I never thought Kidman in such a role like Collette did it. Also Collette Nominated for a 2000 Tony Award for her performance as "Queenie" in Michael John LaChiusa's musical "The Wild Party" on Broadway. Kidman was awful in Broadway...

Yes, I saw "to die For" THREE F*** TIMES and only Illeana Douglas was great in a small character.

BTW what's your name anyway? Because NK Fan sounds like a hopeless obsesive fan.

Final question: Why the AMPAS didn't nominated again Kidman? She won partially for sympathy vote. She's divorced of Tom Cruise and stole Julianne Moore's Oscar -When Moore was miles better- and Huppert deserved that oscar nod.

whatchasayy said...

If I may add...NMK fan is a true representation of the kind of fanbase mutton still has...so astute enough (sarcasm) to buy into almost pure PR ploy that makes up this actress's talent, career and appearance....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Nicole Mary Kidman fan said...

Still waiting to hear your name Anon. So what if I am a big fan of hers, at least I have taste. Toni Collette is one ugly mo fo, and has no fashion sense at all. I saw some of those films you mention. Ah lets see, Japanese story was a big bore (yawn), velvet goldmine was a huge flop, and muriel's wedding was embarrassing to all australians. the ockerism in all of it. toni's tv show started out ok but then seemed to make fun at the condition the character has. AND if Juliane Moore was supposed to get the oscar they would have given it to her that year. Nicole got it for her powerful performance, nothing to do with Tom divorcing her. You really think they would give her one because they felt sorry for her? You are out of your mind. Not only that, you are too scared to put a name to your comments. I bet you secretly love nicole. if so, we can be friends.

Anonymous said...

well, I'm Rodrigo. I'm mexican-american and I travelled a lot.

You said Kidman gives a powerful perofrmance so, why only give her a Globe award.

Moore actually Won:
*BFCA
*LAFCA
*San Diego
*San Francisco
*Florida
*Another 20 awards
*Volpi Cup in VEnice

Also DIane Lane actually won:
*National Society of Critics
*NYFCC
*Women's Association awards

It's really curious how you said I'm in love of Kidman. I think you're a little "jotita" or hopeless fat with not sense of living and wants to be Nicole because is you followed destination.

BTW, why Kidman hasn't another awards nominations? Or even worse Why didn't she win an AFI award? Even she was nominated before?

You said "Velvet Goldmine" is a flop, so that's the same with "Eyes Wide Shut", "Birth", "Margot at the Wedding" and other stuffs. But if you said "To die For" is a cult fave, don't you know also the big effect of Velvet Goldmine by

"Japanese Story" is declared one of the most underrated films by many film specialists and bloggers including Nathaniel Rogers (Fan of Kidman by the way).

"muriel's wedding was embarrassing to all australians"... LOL that's funny because I know many aussie who love it especially glenn for Stale Popcorn.

OK, maybe Collette isn't beautiful but at least she looks at her age and normal.

Finally, We could be real friends but again tell me your name (becuase NK Fan sounds childish and stupid). If you don't like Collette, don't worry we will tall about other aussie actresses like Cate Blanchett (another Oscar Winner), Judy Davis (Respected veteran), Naomi Watts, Abbie Cornish... OK bye sweetie

Tanya said...

Rodrigo -
why don't you type your name in the NAME/URL then instead of putting Anonymous. It's that simple! Yes I will put my name from here on.

Japanese story had one good scene when the Jap man died, that changed the story. Still, Toni Collette cant for nuts, that's why she hasn't got an Oscar. Do you really think Tom would have got with Nicole if she was as hopeless as you say? It would have brought him down by marrying him. Think about it.

DOn't forget to type your name in from now on RODRIGO!!!

whatchasayy said...

NMK fan writes "Nicole got it for her powerful performance, nothing to do with Tom divorcing her. You really think they would give her one because they felt sorry for her?" This may shock you, but some people had noticed her astounding rise to Oscar shortly after the divorce, while Tommy WAS at the top of his game, his ability to pull strings, and possible part of divorce settlement to "make" her career. There was uncanny parallel declines for both of them as Tommy's career declined, hers had become merely superfulous for the HW powerhouses to support hers while still obligated to Tommy for whatever political, economic business obligatory reasons. She never had talent to hit stardom to start with(all stuff was done for her to get there.) This is the reason she continues to do what she's only capable of, in spite of aging, building herself in hypes, fads and hypocricies; neither had it nor knows how to do real work. There are such thing as sympathy voting, but that was a means to the end or a tool used to get there and the end was a part of contractual settlement with tommy. Too dumbfounding for you? Ain't life grand and much simpler to stay dumb...and blind.......this bull sh*t acting seems to have spilled over to her current mate, now his career is tanking and his credibility is not what it used to be professionally or otherwise. The guy resorts a lot of PR ploys, and there is another blog site (UMyth) tries to expose these. They're both entertainer maggots, real dirtbags....

blue sky said...

Sorry that I am late to the party on this blog, but Nicole Mary Kidman fan you are too consumed with Nicole Kidman. Toni Collette is a FANTASTIC actress. I have enjoyed EVERY movie she has been in, and she was brilliant in "The Sixth Sense". I was floored to find out she was an Aussie after that movie came out, and as we have seen from the main picture on the main page of this blog, a hair and make-up team can do wonders for anyone. Here is proof that Toni IS an attractive woman. She looks like a beautiful woman - not some male alien!

I saw a great film recently with Annette Benning and Julie Ann Moore about a couple of aging lesbian parents. Annette's performance was fantastic and it was such a joy to watch a real, untouched woman on the screen. And she's still sexy and beautiful despite the wrinkles and jowls! This is what is soooooooooo disapointing about Kidman for me. I once thought she was one of those woman but sadly, her choices reveal she is shallow and vain. Her career has very little steam left in it because real woman don't look flawless, don't have perky silicone tits, fake teeth or inflated lips. What a shame she's too egocentric to know that.

Frewt
