Nicole Kidman says she’ll take a break from acting for more kids

Angelina Jolie isn’t the only famous mom talking about leaving the glamor of movie-making behind to concentrate on her family. Nicole Kidman told reporters at the Sydney premiere of her new epic, Australia, that she’s been thinking about stepping away from Hollywood to have more children. She has two adopted children in their teens who live with her ex, Tom Cruise, along with a baby daughter, Sunday Rose, four months:

‘I’m in a place in my life where I’ve had some great opportunities, and I may just choose to have some more children,’ said the 41-year-old, who has a 4-month-old girl with Urban and two adopted children Isabella, 15, and Connor, 13, from her marriage to Tom Cruise.

‘There’s many things I want to do besides act.’

[From The Daily Mail]

Kidman, 41, held her hands over her stomach several times yesterday and she may already be working on that fourth child. Maybe she was just trying to find a place to rest her hands, though. It does seem suspicious that she hasn’t dyed her hair, but it’s possible she’s working on getting pregnant again and doesn’t want to risk it.

Director Baz Luhrmann has denied reports that he was furiously scrambling to change the ending (warning: link contains spoilers!) of the film at the last minute due to negative reactions from test audiences. He did shoot three different endings though, which is rare in movie-making as it ends up costing the studio a lot of money. Australia reportedly cost $120 million to make.

Australia is out in Australia today, 11/18, and opens in the US next week on 11/26. Here’s the trailer. My first boyfriend was Australian and that accent gets me every time. It doesn’t hurt that it’s coming from Jackman’s mouth.

    Oh yes, please do. Take your sweet time honey..

  2. Baholicious says:

    Nice to have such luxuries of decision when she doesn’t have to worry about standing in front of a fryer for 8 hours a day to bring home a paycheque.

  3. Kaiser says:

    That’s just the way she’s always posed. She hasn’t gotten a new pillow. :roll:

  4. Al says:

    She is gorgeous, annoyingly so. I do have to comment that she doesn’t look as skeletor-ish as she usually does. I thought her daughter was named Sunday Roast.

  5. Baholicious says:

    @Al: No, you can kick Perez Hilton in the prunes for that one.

    I love me some Aussie! I never go to the cinema (read: hermit), but I’d actually venture out into the world to go see this movie…

    Hopefully it’s not Out of Africa 2.0 …

    @Baholicious: Hey! We, the compatriots of Dame Nicole, came up with that first, gosh darn it! Bloody oath we did! :evil: :D

    What’s this about her not dyeing her hair? She’s a natural redhead – google ‘BMX Bandits’ :lol: – and she looks very blonde in these photos.

  8. geronimo says:

    @Perla/baho – absolutely right. Nothing to do with Slugboy Hilton. Xiaoecho (above) mentioned ages ago how the Aussie press, upon hearing the name Sunday Rose, immediately christened her Sunday Roast. (sorry, hate to see perez getting credit for it!)

    Still not feeling this film.

  9. Embee says:

    I find her simply stunning (and I love the red shoes!).

  10. anastasiabeaverhausen says:

    So the surrogate has recovered for four months and her doctor has given her the green light to incubate another baby for Kidman again.

    (That’s the Truthiness Translation.)

  11. Eileen Yover says:

    Usually she looks like a statue. Her face is more natural in these photos-she looks better than I’ve seen in a long time. And Hugh is a BABE.

  12. Eileen Yover says:

    Ouch-retract the natual statement, I just saw the pics under the umbrella….that’s alotta platic in there.

  13. Codzilla says:

    Hugh is so fine it’s criminal. Now what’s Nicole yammering on about?

  14. Kristin says:

    Like her, AJ, and countless other actresses who have said this, I’ll believe it when I see it.

  15. Buttercup says:

    I wish Nicole would leave her lips alone and I would love to see her become flame haired again.

    I have no real desire to see this film, it looks a bore fest and having seen snippets of this film already, Nicole and Hugh appear to have little to no chemistry.

  16. orion70 says:

    no one puts baby in a corner…

    …seriously? no one else thought that when Hugh entered the dance floor?

    …also, how many tragically spoiled porcelain doll-turned rough and tumble pillar of strength on the farm type movies has this woman made now?

    I love me some Jackman, but when a preview looks this bad, i’m not exactly jonesing for the movie.

  17. frewt says:

    Well it (Australia) opened last night to monumental fanfare around the country and the word is its a monumental stinker. I didn’t need a reveiwer to tell me that after seeing the shorts but I’m glad my suspicions have been vindicated. Save your money folks.

  18. Sickitten says:

    Most movies Nic stars in stink.

  19. tigerlille says:

    I have always found Nicole to be a very fine actress, although her choice of films over the last several years is almost inexplicable.

  20. Kim says:

    She never makes a successful BO movie, this seems to taking the same route. Love Hugh Jackman.

  21. Antibotox says:

    Hard to stomach three hours of Nic on the big screen. Based on mix reviews of this film so far, it might be best to wait for the DVD, or completely skip it. I like the latter.

  22. DLR says:

    mmm, hugh jackman, yummo. recently saw some pics of him in nothing but trunks on a beach, and the fur on his chest made me drool so much i almost short-circuited my keyboard from the dripping. :P
