Is Nicole Kidman finally easing off of the Botox and lip injections?

100728a1_kidman_b-gr_14

At the beginning of this year, Deadline Hollywood broke the story that Nicole Kidman had signed on with famed Hollywood manager Guyer Kosinski, best known for being Angelina Jolie’s only Hollywood manager. Many pointed out that Nicole was likely trying to attempt a new direction for her career after her name became synonymous with “box office poison” for half a decade. Many hoped that Kosinski would give Nicole some good career advice and some hard truths that she obviously wasn’t getting from her CAA agent, Kevin Huvane. Since signing on with Kosinski, Nicole has made some changes – she took a supporting part in a comedy with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, she’s signed on to do an action-thriller with Nicolas Cage, and she also agreed to do a TV movie… with my lover Clive Owen. She’s rumored to be attached to another half-dozen projects too. Basically, she’s trying to reinvent herself as an actress who does films that people actually see, rather than artsy-fartsy stuff that doesn’t work, or big-budget disasters in which her frozen face is the special effect that scares small children.

What has been unknown is whether Kosinski would tell Nicole Kidman some hard truths about her face and all of its Botoxy glory. Through the past few months, it didn’t really seem like Nicole was easing herself off the hard stuff (‘Tox and lip injections), and if anything, some of her recent appearances have been even more ‘Toxy – not to mention the hint of boob job. But she’s back to red hair now, thank God, and judging from her appearance yesterday at a Hollywood event, I’d say Kosinski might have finally talked her into easing off the lip injections. Look at her top lip! It looks… normal. Ish. Okay, not quite “normal” but still shockingly smaller, and not like a worm is trying to fight it’s way out. I love this Nicole. Yes, her forehead still isn’t moving, but the lips are totally an improvement, and they’ve given me hope for the future.

Also, two sidenotes: CB thinks that Nicole easing off the injections is a sign she could be trying for another baby. Prepare the pillow, minions! No, if she is, good for her. Also: I finally saw Nine, and my God, how badly did Nicole suck in that? Worst. Part.

    Nicole eyes est tres jolie,the top lip still scares me… love the new extensions

  2. WOW! She looks like WAY more human!

  3. Crash2GO2 says:

    She no longer has ‘botox brow’, so yeah, she is either getting better injections, or easing off of them. And her lip looks better!

  4. Eileen says:

    Wow she does look a lot better! Less Marie Osmond Dollish and more like her old self!

  5. guesty says:

    her brows look lower here…& she’s not quite as shiny.

  6. Shay says:

    I don’t know how this woman is considered one of the world’s most beautiful women. She has had so many facial peels, that her forehead looks like tissue paper. Her eyes are completely frozen. She has no facial expressions. She has used Meg Ryan as an acting model all her acting life.
    Is it casting couch? The compromise she made after being married to Tom Cruise for a decade (for her career to go gangbusters after she did her ‘time’)? Every film she has done has bombed and yet, directors still put her in their films. How can they be oblivious to the Kidman curse?
    The fact that she says that she is natural infuriates me. She is no natural. One only has to look to the first images of her modelling in Australia, especially her fashion spreads and covers for Dolly magazine, to see that there is no way she is natural. She was covered with obvious freckles. Her hair has a tight natural curl. (here is an image I’ve found here: http://simplynaturaldecor.blogspot.com/2009/04/passion-for-interiorswhere-it-all-began.html).
    Nicole Kidman attributes keeping out of the sun, but that’s questionable.

    Maybe she’s just REALLY happy at the prospect of having Bela back in her life full time. :)

  8. mollyb says:

    Nicole is that one celebrity for me, you know, no matter how many missteps and foolish things she does, I still totally love her. Gingers of the world, unite!

  9. Marjalane says:

    Meh. She always looks dowdy to me these days. I saw a picture of her at a movie with K.U. in some lavender muu-muu that was hideous!

  10. canadianchick says:

    Love her hair, she’s talented so it is time to reinvent.

  11. sapphire says:

    It must be hard to convine her that natural is better on her. She really needs her brows reshaped and about 15 lbs.

  12. buell says:

    This is far and away the best she has looked in ages.

  13. gabs says:

    Finally! I hope she came to her senses. It looks much better to age naturally and i hated her as a blonde. This is the best shes looked in a while

  14. Maritza says:

    She looks great!

  15. mary jane says:

    She does look adorable.

    And she’s put on a teeny-tiny bit of weight…. that helps.

  16. P.J. says:

    The smaller lip looks so pretty!

    Maybe this “fish lips” craze is finally beginning to run its course.

  17. Marjalane says:

    Oh my. That pic of Nicole sitting on the park bench is pretty bizarre; It makes me mad when celebs are idolized as “natural beauties” when the reality is, they’ve had SO much work done!

  18. Alias says:

    I think she looks great and seems to have put on a bit of weight, she was really a string bean for a while which as you get older isn’t the most flattering look.

  19. Brooke says:

    It has been rumoured that she had a lip implant and also took collagen injections – maybe she removed the implant? When she smiles her upper lip is almost natural looking.

  20. snowball says:

    I just adore her, artsy fartsy movies or not. I could watch The Others every week.

    She’s got tissue-y skin because she’s one of those freaky redheads who just do. Have you seen pics of her when she was young? BMX Bandits is a good movie to check (I don’t know if you can find pics of it, but I remember that one coming out – yep, I’m old). God, her skin is practically translucent.

    It’d be nice if she stopped Botoxing. She doesn’t need it, I don’t think, unless her forehead is insanely wrinkled, and even then, who cares? Get bangs. Eye wrinkles are fine at your age, Nicole!

  21. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    I’ve always liked Kidman, and have nerver understood the hate some have for her.

    I think she is a pretty woman.

  22. RHONYC says:

    isn’t it amazing how her body has filled out since the baby.

    she used to be a rail. a gorgeous rail, but still a rail.

    i know keith is happy.

    don’t go back to the blonde nic.

    firecrotches rule!

    lol :-)

  23. denise says:

    I think Nicole is so scared of the sun, because it may actually melt her.
    Dare I say, she actually looks pretty in the last pic.

  24. aenflex says:

    YES! She almost looks like her old, beautiful self in the very bottom picture! Oh, I love her and I hope she unplastics…

  25. Dee Vine says:

    Her body appears filled out cos she had a boob job.

  26. mary says:

    Grand improvement! She looks great. Remember, Nicole, less is more!

  27. sharylmj says:

    I have always loved Nicole.. even before Keith.. she looks really pretty here and has been looking very happy with her hubby and cute baby.. GO NICOLE.. yes stay true to your beautiful redheaded self.

  28. a says:

    she’s looking much better. the main distraction now is the need for eyedrops that i notice often with her.

    i’m thinking it is due to sensitive skin and eye makeup.

  29. Alecto says:

    why do her eyes always look so red and bloodshot?

  30. xxodettexx says:

    wow, her face looks like its moving!

    i confess: i like her… i liked her in moulin rouge, i loved her in practical magic… something about her coloring i just love, and the fact that she survived a scientology marriage

    but yes, her latest choices coupled with her over-botoxing was just overkill, glad to see her starting to look a little more like her old self

  31. Annie says:

    I agree with CB…I think she looks preggo already. Either that or she ate a cookie for a flippin change.

  32. Annie says:

    “Shay” AKA Katie Holmes Cruise-

    Sheesh! That is one crazy post!

  33. Cam says:

    she does look A LOT better!
    LOVE HER HAIR!

  34. mln says:

    Nicole was brilliant in ‘To Die For’ and she was stunning when she still had freckles and before she ruined her face. I think she’s pregnant. BTW is that crappy movie with Aniston and Sandler a good career move, doesn’t it have the honor of giving Heidi Montag her first film role? I guess it will get people in the theaters but it looks really bad.

  35. P.M. says:

    I’d forgotten about Practical Magic! Both she & Sandra Bullock looked great in that.

  36. Jordan says:

    Yay, maybe she’ll start looking more like her old self pre-surgery. All these actresses destroy their looks with surgery. She’s good and just needs a good movie role. Hopefully that Keith guy treats her well

  37. I Choose Me says:

    She is a damn good actress imo.
    Dead Calm
    Malice
    Practical Magic
    To Die For
    The Others
    Moulin Rouge
    She was fantastic in those.

    Don’t know what happened to her these past few years. Yes, she’s obviously messed with her face but it’s her wooden performances I’m talking about. I hope she gets back on track.

  38. RHONYC says:

    @ Choose Me:

    ___________________________

    super diddo.

    especially dead calm.

  39. Kitten says:

    Nicole Kidman is one of my most favorite actresses. That being said, I have been so disappointed with the stuff she’s done to her face. The last few films I saw her in, I felt her expressions were totally limited due to the ‘tox :( I wonder if maybe that was preventing her from getting work?
    Anyway, she looks really good here! Yay!

  40. Bernice says:

    I think Nicole is gorgeous. To me, she looks really good here. I like the less “tight/shiny” look and the more natural lips. Red is a good hair color on her. I enjoy watching her as an actress in most roles.

  41. serena says:

    Well, apparently she did stop with the botox (for now).

  42. Camille says:

    Much better. This is the best she has looked in years. I am liking that dress on her too.

  43. OhCamille! says:

    She’s one of my favs.
    I have never liked her taste in clothing though. Even her casual wear misses.
    I loved The Others – great flick!
    Also Cold Mountain – another great flick
    Bewitched – not so much – murdered that movie

    Oh, just so you know, Clive Owen is cheating on you with me! :-)

  44. Johnthing says:

    Yes, she’s looking like her “old” beautiful self. I thought she was gorgeous in Dead Calm. Then, she just got too stiff and tight- really scary. Wish the “old” Meg Ryan was around.

  45. Jeri says:

    I think she easing off, maybe marriage is good for her.

  46. Crash2GO2 says:

    Hmmm. Maybe with the lip stuff she was trying to hide that gummy smile (talking about the old photos). Other than that, I think her old photos and old look were gorgeous. The other look I loved was when she had her hair cut short during the divorce. On her tall elegant figure, it looked divine.

  47. Artecate says:

    About time she layed off the ‘tox. Pity for a beautiful woman like her to look like a freak.

  48. Shay says:

    Jeez, I wonder how many people the Kidman machine pays to comment favourably in blogs.

  49. excuse me says:

    Now this is the beautiful woman I adore. Whomever talked Nicole into the ‘fat lip look’ was wrong. She looks radiant & natural in these pics.

  50. oduroyal says:

    Nicole looks MUCH better. And on a side-note her daughter Sunday is so cute and looks just like her!

  51. CH says:

    oh! she was pretty in 1983 ! she had a funny face, not anymore

  52. Did you see the pictures of her in Haiti? Not a line on her face when she was trying to show concern for the families there. They would have been confused to hell and back by her expressionless face.
    Did she get a boob job? She seems busty here, in Haiti and the movie date with the hubbie. She use to be flat as a tack but now has a rack.
