Really, Nicole? REALLY?
Nicole Kidman coves the latest issue of V magazine photographed by Mario Testino. Makeup: James Kaliardos (Art + Commerce). Hair: Oribe For Oribe Hair Care (Oribe Agency).
Stuff like this just confuses the hell out of us. Because yes, she looks hot as hell in these pictures and Nicole has been in desperate need of a good thaw for a long time now. And certainly the gay-fabulous part of ourselves (HAHA! Did you hear that? Like it’s some tiny aspect of our personalities overall! Delusional!) wants to cheer her on and yell “You go on with your sexy self, Miss Nicole! Work that ass!”
But then we think about the fact that she’s a mature woman with an Academy Award, a baby, and a ton of respect both in her industry and in the world at large. And then it all suddenly feels kind of sad and desperate. She looks AMAZING, no doubt about it. But we kinda thought she had enough cred in her career and fulfillment in her life that she didn’t have to resort to writhing around in her underwear or flashing her sequined panties at us. By all means, shatter that image, and there’s nothing wrong with a lady wanting to look hot, but flashing your panties and fondling your boobs? That’s Lohan territory.
Look at it this way: If, say, Russell Crowe got himself all ripped and worked-out and decided to celebrate that by humping the floor in his manpanties for an editorial, we might think it was hot, but we’d also think it was a serious step down for an Oscar winner.
Oh, what are we saying? OF COURSE a male Oscar winner in his 40s would NEVER even be asked to do something like that, let alone agree to it.
