Over the years, the Pirelli Calendar has become synonymous with two seemingly incongruous things: tires and nudity. Make that lots of nudity. But last year, thanks to Annie Leibovitz all of that changed. The renowned photographer ushered in a new way to celebrate a handful of her favorite famous ladies, focusing on women whose lives and works inspire her rather than putting the emphasis on their physiques alone. And this year, photographer Peter Lindbergh has chosen to follow suit, seeking to capture the inner depths of A-list actresses like Julianne Moore, Uma Thurman, Robin Wright, and Nicole Kidman.

This is the third time the German image-maker has been tapped to get behind the lens for the prestigious annual initiative. The 44th edition of the calendar is a collection of images Lindbergh has dubbed “Emotional” featuring an array of beauties of all ages, including Jessica Chastain, 39, Penélope Cruz, 42, Nicole Kidman, 49, Rooney Mara, 31, Helen Mirren, 71, Julianne Moore, 55, Lupita Nyong’o, 33, Charlotte Rampling, 70, Léa Seydoux, 31, Uma Thurman, 46, Alicia Vikander, 28, Kate Winslet, 41, Robin Wright, 50, and Zhang Ziyi, 37.

Interestingly enough, in addition to this bevy of all-star thespians, Lindbergh also chose to include Anastasia Ignatova, professor of Political Theory at MGIMO, the Moscow State University of International Relations.

The artist explained his vision for the shoot in a press release from the tire company, saying, “In a time when women are represented in the media and everywhere else, as ambassadors of perfection and youth, I thought it was important to remind everyone that there is a different beauty, more real and truthful and not manipulated by commercial or any other interests, a beauty which speaks about individuality, courage to be yourself and your own private sensibility.”

“My aim was to portray women in a different way,” he continues, “and I did it by calling in actresses who’ve played an important role in my life, getting as close as possible to them to take my photos. As an artist, I feel I’m responsible for freeing women from the idea of eternal youth and perfection. The ideal of perfect beauty promoted by society is something that simply can’t be attained.”

While we would argue that looking as flawless as this group of women isn’t exactly achievable without a very specific set of genetics and the help of a good personal trainer, nonetheless, we can still appreciate the sentiment.

She has been part of our movie lives for most of her life, in roles high and low, commercial and of raw artistry. In her latest, she plays a mother to two adopted children who need very different things from her.

Nicole recently did an interview with Jess Cagle for PEN network. To watch the entire interview go here.

After more than a decade of supporting her husband, Keith Urban, in his sobriety, Nicole Kidman is sharing what she’s learned “as the wife of somebody who’s been through” a struggle with addiction.

Speaking on The Jess Cagle Interview, Kidman told PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly‘s editorial director that she would advise the loved ones of an addict “to get help. To put your hand up, to reach out. There is absolutely help out there. You can’t save somebody, they’ve got to save themselves.”

That lesson, she explains, “Is a very big thing for people like me who go, ‘I can take care of you. I can do it.’ ” Instead of trying to do all the work herself, Kidman realized, “At some point, you just have to say, ‘I love you and I’m here when you decide to do the work. If you don’t, then that’s it.’ “

Urban, who has been open about having battled addiction starting early in his career in the 1990s, checked himself into the Betty Ford Center in Palm Springs for a recurring problem with alcohol abuse in 2007 — just four months after he and Kidman tied the knot.

“Nicole listened to her heart and did what she felt was the right thing to do,” Urban told PEOPLE in 2007. “To see that kind of love in action, that’s very moving and deeply inspiring and just makes me want to be a better man.”

The Lion actress stood by her husband’s side every step of the way. “It’s not easy, but there’s an extraordinary life if you do get there through help,” she says.

Nicole returns to the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and they have a fun yet awkward interview ….

When Jimmy keeps getting distracted by Nicole Kidman during their interview, she reminds him of another opportunity he missed to get her number before bringing in her husband Keith Urban to sing about it.

Jimmy, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban draw random categories then try to shout out the same answer at the same time to jinx each other.

The Associated Press shared this article UN Trust Fund to End Violence that Nicole is supporting.

NEW YORK (AP) — Nicole Kidman says that after seeing women and children who were victims of violence in Kosovo 10 years ago, she decided that one of the most important things in her life was to work to help them.

The Academy Award-winning actress told a fundraising dinner Wednesday night marking the 20th anniversary of the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women, that she has been speaking out ever since “to be a voice for the women who don’t have a voice.”

According to the United Nations, today one in three women worldwide have experienced physical or sexual violence — mostly by an intimate partner.

Kidman, who is a goodwill ambassador for UN Women, urged the guests “to undo your wallets,” saying these women and girls “need us who have the ability, who have the money,” to help them.

UN Women said the dinner raised over $105,000, including a $50,000 donation from Kidman.

Over the past two decades, UN Women said the trust fund has provided support to 426 organizations in 136 countries and territories with grants totaling more than $116 million.

The fund’s grants have risen from $1 million in 1997 to supporting $57 million in grants in 2016.

The programs it supports focus on preventing violence, implementing of laws and policies, and improving access to vital services for survivors.

UN Women’s Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka said: “We know that these vital investments in initiatives to end violence have high returns and have already made a difference to millions of women and girls.”

But she said much more needs to be done requiring substantial funding to “bring the scourge of violence against women to an end.”
