Nicole Kidman’s Publicist Swears She And Keith Urban Are Not Breaking A “Mandatory” Australian Quarantine
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban caught hell recently for flying from Nashville to Australia and avoiding the mandatory coronavirus quarantine of staying in a government-managed hotel. Instead of quarantining in a hotel, they quarantined in their mansion. People shook their heads at that because the government stated that the hotel quarantine is mandatory and very few exceptions will be allowed. Well, Nicole’s rep is denying that she and Keith got around the “mandatory” quarantine and claim total innocence! I don’t know… do we believe it? She wasn’t on a show called Big Little Truths…
Air travel in 2020. It’s for the birds. And mega-rich celebrities who can afford to charter their own private jets. Like Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, who flew from Tennessee to Sydney with their two daughters, Sunday, 12, and Faith, 9.
The Daily Mail says that the rules in the Australian state of New South Wales dictate that (the vast majority of) people traveling from outside the country must quarantine in state-approved hotels for 14 days. But the Kidman-Urbans were granted special permission to self-isolate at home. So, after a health check at the Sydney airport, the family drove to their estate in the Southern Highlands.

There are a lot of motherfuckers in Hollywood who should be investing in the continued health and well being of Thandie Newton. They (and they know who they are) might consider signing her up for a vitamin of the month club or something because in a recent Vulture interview, Thandie let it be known that she’s got a “little black book, which will be published on my deathbed.” Thandie has been through the wringer and has thankfully come out the other side a self-possessed queen who will shank you, with extreme Britishness, with the word “love.” But nothing she endured could prepare her for the harrowing experience of starring opposite a pulsating zit on the tip of Tom Cruise’s nose.
I don’t know which Project Runway reject fucked up the Overstock.com bedsheet challenge this badly either. And to think, we were so worried about Lizzo getting her juice all over the folding chairs at The Staples Center, we forgot to worry about potential coochie-contact with the upholstered seats at the Shrine Auditorium. However, Sarah Hyland’s short and confusing floral 4th of July bunting skirt was an outlier. For the most part, the outfits on display at last night’s Screen Actors’ Guild Awards were a lot more conservative, ranging from the tiered ruffles and billowy chiffon of a modest religious sect, to tailored suits. On ladies! Hollywood is confusing.
Love it or hate, it’s Scarlett Johansson’s world and we’re just living in it. Like literally, everything from the trees in the forest to all the hysterical wives in Brooklyn, it’s all Scarlett, all the time. Scarlett earned three Screen Actors Guild nominations today, and we have to assume her dear friend Woody Allen was one of the first calls she made when she heard the news. According to Variety, Scarlett got two noms for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for Jojo Rabbit and Marriage Story, as well as a nomination in the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture category for Jojo Rabbit. Add that to her Golden Globe nomination announced earlier this week, they’re probably just going to go ahead and call movies “Scarletts” from now on.
Dolly Parton is, as always, pure perfection. Her love for all things shiny and tight, makes me miss the CMA red carpets of old. But of course, nostalgia is a big theme in country music, and the red carpet of this year’s CMA Awards is making me nostalgic as hell for a time before Hollywood muscled its way into Nashville and diluted its rugged charm with the likes of Gigi Hadid. WHY WAS SHE THERE?!
