I haven’t seen the alleged epic kangaroo shit pile known as Australia, so I can’t comment on Nicole Kidman’s performance in it, but I can comment on her FACE. The face that is thisclose to looking exactly like Julie Masking. This is probably what made Nicole so uncomfortable while watching her own movie.
In an interview with a Australian radio station 2DayFM (via LA Times), Nicole said, “I can’t look at this movie and be proud of what I’ve done. But I thought Brandon Walters and Hugh Jackman were wonderful. It’s just impossible for me to connect to it emotionally at all.”
Change out the word “movie” with the word “mug” and then she’s finally speaking the truth. Oh and while you’re doing that, also drop the “it” and add an “anything.” There, fixed.
Nicole also said, “I sat there, and I looked at Keith and went, ‘Am I any good in this movie?‘ ”
She went on to tell Keith, “Um. Can you just give your answer in words, because I can’t see your face. The light beams from your shiny highlights keep ricocheting back and forth off my forehead.”
Personally, I don’t think Nicole Kidman is a shit actress. But it’s probably hard to convey raw emotion when your eye ball falls out every time you try to move a muscle in your face.
