Nicole Kidman and her daughter Faith on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar

This is one of the more beautiful covers I’ve seen of Nicole Kidman. She looks so beautiful. Not made-up, not dressed in some amazing gown. Just down-to-earth, natural and beautiful with her baby girl, Faith.

Here we have Nicole on the June cover of Harper’s Bazaar Australia. She’s holding her 18-month-old daughter Faith.

Nicole’s hair is chopped very short, in a cute little bob. She cut her hair for her portrayal of 33-year-old Grace Kelly in ‘Grace of Monaco’.

Here’s more from Harper’s Bazaar:

Truth, beauty, family. Editor Edwina McCann gets to know the real Nicole Kidman on location at BAZAAR’s August cover shoot.

Nicole Kidman is no stranger to criticism. She faced plenty after the birth in December 2010 of Faith Margaret, a much-yearned for sister for Sunday Rose. Faith was famously born with the help of a “gestational carrier” as is the common term in the US. No doubt there will be those who throw yet more criticism at her for allowing her children to feature in photos in this month’s Harper’s BAZAAR. So I wanted to explain what happened behind the scenes.

Kidman was booked for our cover shoot with a young Australian photographer and regular BAZAAR contributor, Will Davidson. The shoot took place a few hours out of Sydney in a country home with a perfect red dirt road, as envisioned by Davidson. Kidman arrived on time, without entourage, and even spotted the crew not a coffee but a coffee van — “my treat” — when she was told the cost was beyond the shoot budget. She was a willing photographic subject, talked to me in an unguarded and genuinely warm manner before the pictures, and later waited obligingly until dark for a specific Gucci dress to arrive. (In the end the light was so low that the shot didn’t make the cut.) Later in the afternoon, Sunday Rose and Faith arrived after their sleeps to see Mummy. Kidman didn’t want to put them down; Sunday Rosedonned one of the tuxedo jackets from the clothing racks because it was getting chilly. The photographer then took some shots of Kidman with the girls solely for her family album.

Nicole didn’t mind her children being photographed for the magazine, either. She said, “I think it’s OK, because you can’t see their faces; they’re still protected. I feel it’s a really lovely way to celebrate being a mum and being a family, and they’re my daughters, and they’re Keith’s daughters [laughs] … you can see the hair!”

I love, love, love the cover! Beautiful!

Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen open up about their sex-filled movie, ‘Hemmingway & Gellhorn’

Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen grace the May 2012 issue of W Magazine.

The Oscar-winning actress looks beautiful in the Emma Summerton photo shoot.

Kidman and Owen are about to appear on HBO’s “Hemmingway & Gelhourn”.  Martha Gelhourn was a war correspondent who fell in love with a married Ernest Hemmingway. The two went on to have a tumultuous four-year affair.

Here are some clips from the interview:

Nicole Kidman:

On whether or not her mother supported her career:

“She always believed in me, but she’s tough on me too. She’s lived a life where she made a lot of compromises. She would have loved to be a doctor, but she didn’t come from the generation of women where she could go and be a doctor. She became a nurse instead. Not that there’s anything wrong with being a nurse, but she wanted to be a doctor. Until I won the Academy Award [for The Hours], I was kind of pursuing things to please her. I’ve really tried to sever that.”

On whether she has the toughness in her life of Gellhorn:

“My husband [country singer Keith Urban] says I’m raw. He thinks the world is not a great place for me because he fears that I’ll be hurt. He says, ‘That’s my job: I’ll protect you.’”

What attracted her to the role of playing Martha Gellhorn:

I knew nothing about Martha, but I’ve always been drawn to unique women who are willing to take on the world. The exciting thing about this film is that you see her discovering her nature. At the beginning, she’s a lot of talk. She knows that she’s either got to get her hands dirty and become what she pretends to be or she’s a fraud. In the end, Gellhorn out-Hemingways Hemingway.

On being comfortable getting nude on film:

I don’t mind being naked. Maybe as I get older, and now after having had a baby, it might be different, but I enjoy not letting my issues get in the way of a performance. Once I start putting all my little insecurities in my mind, I’m not actually acting. Then it’s about me—and it should never be about me. It should be about the character.

On the intense sex scenes in ‘Hemmingway & Gellhorn’:

The sex was very important in that relationship because that’s the way she cuts Hemingway off. When Gellhorn says, “I don’t like sex,” it’s her way of saying, “I’m not based in sexuality; Hemingway didn’t have power over me. That’s not where I came from.”

Having said that, the sexual attraction between them was powerful. I kept asking Phil Kaufman, the director, “Is all this sex ­important for the story?” I wanted to make sure he wasn’t just getting off. But these were two people who could make love when a building was falling down around them. They had passion.

Clive Owen:

On whether he acted as a child:

“I played the Artful Dodger in Oliver! when I was about 13. It was the musical version. I didn’t sing that well, but I gave it a go. I was just given the part, thrown into it, and I came out and said, “I have to do this. I’ve got to be an actor.”

On meeting his wife, Sarah-Jane Fenton, while acting in a play:

“After drama school I did a seven-month tour of Europe performing in Romeo and Juliet. I played Romeo. I was at the first rehearsal, thinking, I wonder what Juliet is going to be like, and she came in. She had a corduroy jacket on and was carrying a pile of secondhand books, and her glasses were falling off. I kind of fell in love at that moment.”

On his instant chemistry with his wife:

“When we did the big balcony scene, I always thought we had this amazing connection. Much later, she admitted to me she couldn’t even see me because she’s so shortsighted, and she didn’t wear her glasses onstage [laughs]. At the time, I didn’t think it would be a great idea if Romeo and Juliet got together, so we didn’t do anything about our relationship until halfway through the run. We finally got together in Belfast, and now we have two daughters.”

On whether or not he prefers filming sex scenes – or scenes where he’s dying:

“It’s much harder to do a death scene. You’ve got to do it convincingly, and it’s a huge thing to die [laughs]. Sex scenes are only hard if there’s no narrative conveyed through the sex scene. In the Hemingway film, the sex scenes have a story going through them. It’s part of who these people are and what they are.”

Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly?

Nicole Kidman,  actress extrordinaire,  is most likely going to be playing film icon Grace Kelly in the new Kelly biopic, according to Variety.  Right off her Oscar nom for “Rabbit Hole,” Kidman is at the end of talks with producer Pierre-Ange Le Pogam (who is also financing the 15 million dollar slice of glam) and writer  Arash Amel. Set to direct is Olivier Dahan, visionary behind the Edith Piaf biopic “La Vie en Rose,” and “Columbiana.”

Are we excited? Yes.  Skeptical? Extremely.  Still, Kidman beat out a lot of other very talented actresses and the film- set between December 1961 and November 1962- is an interesting part of Kelly’s life.  In the movie, she navigates her post-Oscar stardom, motherhood, and being Monacan royalty.

We are VERY curious to see how this film shapes up!
