I actually think she's getting better. Rabbit Hole, Paperboy, Stoker were all great. Her best role is a choice between The Others & To Die For.

Orangemaid, the one she did with Tom Cruise is called Eyes wide shut

It's a film i still haven't seen and been meaning to. I hear that it was the film that was the start of her eventual breakup with Tom.

She could definitely raise her profile by speaking out against the multitude of abuses she will have witnessed whilst being married to Tom Cruise, in regards to the cult of $cientology.

Her silence is ensuring that hundreds of victims remain trapped in misery. So I have very little respect for her in this regard, same goes for Katie Holmes.

True but most people seem to know Eyes Wide Shut compared to the others.

She can come across as being very remote and icy. Ideal casting for Grace Kelly in "Grace of Monaco" An actress who I thought was often cold and aloof.

I'd dispute that. I'd guess at Days of Thunder being the most famous of the three.

I'm not arguing i know all of Nicole's work but imo Eyes Wide Shut seems to be the one paring that a lot of people remember or think of the most. Probably for the wrong reasons I.E the nature of the film!

I'm not sure about that. DoT was very much a TOM CRUISE film that had Kidman as co-star.

Whereas EWS was very much promoted as the Cruise/Kidman/Kubrick film, generating acres of speculation pre-release and an equal amount of bile post-release.

It's still my second favourite Kubrick film though.

You could say the same for a lot of actresses or famous women who don't speak out against specific issues.

Why doesn't Britney speak out about the stigma of Mental health issues? Because she doesn't want to and why should she

The same for why Nicole Kidman doesn't wanna speak out against it. Likely because she doesn't want the backlash and wants no reminder of her past. She is a very private women anyway.

I'm not sure it matters it was a 'Cruise' film. The fact is that she was the love interest in the movie and many will remember that and also AFAIK it was the first time they had acted together and they developed a personal relationship afterwards.
(I'm not fully sure of the timeline of events).


My initial question was that they have acted opposite each other in three films - many amature film buffs will know that (or possibly just general knowledge).

We'll only know which film the poster was referring to if/when they reply back.

I liked her in 'Dead Calm' and 'The Others'. Haven't seen many of her other films.

I think she is very hit and miss. When she is good she's really good, but when she is bad it's really bad and she comes across as cold as others has said.

What I think Nicole has going in her favour is she has never really played the Hollywood game. When she was amrried to Tom she didn't use it to become a big celebrity in her own right being famous for being famous. The work she chose was based on the roles rather than going for the big budget star vehicle roles.
She took a year or so off a couple of years ago doing virtually nothing when she was pregnant as she had a miscarriage in the past. In an interview she said that she didn't miss acting as much as she thought she would and was happy spending time with her husband and new baby.

Again, I think this shows that she understands the need of celebrity in her life so will do it to a degree when required, but it's not something she coverts.

IMO Nicole is an actress and sees herself as an actress and thus goes to do films and roles she is interested in doing and won't just make a film for the sake of it, a big cheque or to get herself noticed and in all the celeb mags for the sake of exposure and to keep her celeb status.

How do you know she "witnessed" abuses? Yes she may have heard of things and there may be things that she doesn't like or agree with and know that happen about scientology, but it doesn't mean she witnessed any abuse?

Realistically all religions are cults and are based on abuse as they are about power and threats. Do this or bad things will happen. Do as I say and don't question or you are a bad person and/or bad things will happen.
