Cover Girl: Nicole Kidman for Vanity Fair Magazine
Nicole’s Princess Grace drag is reaching critical mass.
Nicole Kidman covers the December 2013 issue of Vanity Fair magazine photographed by Patrick Demarchelier.
Although the hair looks more like a cross between Marilyn and Ann-Margret. Still, she looks good. Then again, it’s Nicole Kidman on the cover of Vanity Fair. How else would she look?
Inside, the interview takes a weird and unnecessary “Let’s talk about ten years ago” turn.
Reflecting on her marriage to Tom Cruise: “And you know, with no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I’ve met my great love now. And I really did not know if that was going to happen. I wanted it, but I didn’t want it for a while, because I didn’t want to jump from one relationship to another. I had a lot of time alone, which was really, really good, because I was a child, really, when I got married. And I needed to grow up.”
On the unreal level of fame she endured during her marriage to Tom Cruise: “There is something about that sort of existence that, if you really focus on each other and you’re in that bubble, it’s very intoxicating, because it’s just the two of you. And there is only one other person that’s going through it. So it brings you very close, and it’s deeply romantic. I’m sure Brad and Angelina have that—because there’s nobody else that understands it except that person who’s sleeping right next to you.”
On not missing living in Hollywood: “The whole business side of it—it’s too present. It doesn’t suit me. There’s an enormous amount you have to give up if you want to have a family. You can have a certain career, but you can’t be living in Hollywood, [where] absolutely everything, everything revolves around it.”
This is one of those rare things that actually make us feel sorry for celebs; the requirement that they continue to discuss or acknowledge failed relationships with other stars that ended a decade before (cue Affleck and Aniston, in unison: “Fuckin A, right?!”). Are people really that interested in the Tom-Nicole post-mortem now, in 2013?
