How do you define a Superstar? Of course, if he is always with us. If he is special, not only because of his artistic ability to be famous and admired. It must be something else. An Image, an image in the Public eye, that’s enough about the Status of the artist. Something magical, perhaps Supernatural. On Nicole Kidman are all true.

For the role of Virginia Woolf, there was one Oscar

In 1967, in Honolulu-born actress, who grew up in Australia and has been one for some years now, the Top Stars in the industry, is undoubtedly a versatile actress. The Oscar for her performance as Virginia Woolf in 2002’s «The Hours» was only the most visible sign of this. That your the prize was awarded for a role in which she disappears in some scenes, under the hood and actually see, do not speak against them.

With Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman was married from 1990 to 2001

Nicole Kidman is modern ideals of beauty: With her (now) blonde hair, her delicate, almost porcelain complexion, the state of the body size and the radiant Smiles she met the expectations of a mass audience.

Not least because of the big fashion and cosmetic companies are detected early on and the new face of their campaigns. The Kidman is undoubtedly one of the most visible movie stars in the world — even outside of the cinema. In some years, she was the no. 1 in the ranking of best-paid Hollywood divas. Also their fees for the performances in front of the advertising cameras were astronomically high.

Nicole Kidman: Wonderful Change

But Kidman provoked, in the meantime, flawless beauty. What is striking is that the actress at the beginning of their career was quite different. Redhead and Curls, also pausbäckiger and burschikoser you presented earlier. The change to the tender-bright type of recent years has to do only with age.

That Nicole Kidman flaunted today, so delicate and almost a little bit artificially-fragile on the red carpets of the world, is probably also due to the skill of modern doctors.

Whether this external change is now a surgical knife involved, Botox injections or only particularly effective Make-Up artists.

«Golden raspberry» for Kidman

Kidman is a real artist. In 2003, she got the Oscar, two years later, the Golden raspberry, together with Will Ferrell for the worst screen Couple of the year in «bewitched». The need for a copy. And a year before the raspberries nomination in 2012, the Oscar nomination for the Film «Rabbit Hole». Light and shadow are in this actress close to each other.

«In her richest roles in the Defensive and Offensive seems to be to keep the balance, the amiable Custom, and the scary rumorende Inner, so to speak, volcanic heat, addiction unprepared to make their way to the outside,» wrote film journalist Thomas Koebner, a few years ago in the Band «The Beautiful in the cinema» on Kidman and hit a nerve.

Nicole Kidman, Koebner, at the time, under the title «The red witch» will be presented, from its beginnings as the red-haired actress in the Australian TV Series a long time ago. Today, she is a seemingly completely different actress. This need not always go well — see her performance as Grace Kelly in «Grace of Monaco» in 2014, or as aseptic, and much to beautiful Africa-travellers in Werner Herzog’s shameful Film «Queen of the desert» a year later.

But again and again Nicole Kidman are also in the recent years, performances of note have succeeded in films such as «Birth» or «The Paperboy» «Stoker» or «Lion». There, they presented the versatile and charismatic. With four new films, which she presented recently at the Festival in Cannes, it seems as if the actress will also play in their second career half in the first row of the female world stars.
