Hi everybody, how are you? So I’m here to talk about one of my favorite people, Nicole Kidman. Hi Nicole! I just have to share something really funny she said to me probably ten minutes ago. As people were coming up and everybody was mentioning her name she goes, “I think I’ve worked with anyone in this room.” So literally, she’s worked with all of you. All of you. And she loves all of you too. She’s genuinely so excited to be here. My beautiful, soulful, talented friend Nicole.

A lot of people know her as an actress of over 80 films and I believe last year alone she made about five, so that has to be some sort of record. She’s an international fashion icon. She’s an Oscar winner. A Emmy winner. A so-many-awards-I-can’t-even-name-them winner. But I know her as a magician. So let me explain. I’ve been one of her biggest fans since I saw one of her very first movies, Dead Calm, has anybody seen Dead Calm? Okay guys, guys she is simultaneously so vulnerable and so badass at the same time. She’s 21 years old and she has this fiery red hair and she has the courage born of rage out of abuse that’s happening. She has incredible action sequences with Billy Zane on this boat in the middle of the ocean. I saw this movie when I was a girl and I thought, that is my hero. That’s the kind of woman I wanna be. It is really quite astounding to think about the body of her work, her various characters that span centuries and continents. Her breadth of performances that range from vulnerable and broken to the master of her own universe. From Suzanne Stone in To Die For, one of my favorite performances, to Ada Munroe in Cold Mountain, to Sateen in Moulin Rouge, a beautiful performance. She has simply done it all.

So last year, you guys, I was really lucky. I got the chance to work with her, finally. I managed also to coerce my line producer to make sure I was in the same makeup trailer with her at all times while she was getting ready so I could ask her anything I wanted to. She was captive for two hours and I asked her a lot of questions. I mean like a lot of questions that would range from anything from, “Tell me about Stanley Kubrick. Can you just give me like a lil’ tidbit. I just wanna know anything.” To Gus Van Sant, to Sofia Coppola, who I love. Baz Luhrmann. Sydney Pollack. Anthony Minghella. Jane Campion. The list goes on and on and on. And she would tell me these stories guys and you could hear a pin drop in the makeup trailer. I said, I gotta get this on a podcast. I gotta do something with this. We’ve gotta monetize this. It’s too good.

But she just has this incredible love of directors, and she loves helping them make their visions come to life and make these characters in these wonderful inventive films that stand the test of time. Not to mention all the extraordinary actors she’s worked with. I asked about all of those too, just so you know. So everyday she would paint these beautiful pictures for me of this wonderful life that she’s lived, literally since she was 18 years old in the movies. And not only did I get the best seat in the house to the very live Nicole Kidman biography, the A&E version, hosted by myself. I also got the privilege of watching her work and that’s where the magic comes in.

To sit opposite my friend, who I know as a mother and a wife and an incredible fellow producer who sits through script meetings and adds notes and production meetings. I just watched Nicole melt away. It was extraordinary. She would come onto set in these incredible outfits and she was gone. Nicole was gone. And she disappeared into someone else. She became this other woman with another mind and another history and another voice, and she even had different eyes. And she became this woman, Celeste Wright, who was a mother of two, a wife of a wealthy man who seemingly has it all together but she holds a secret in her heart, a dark secret. And this powerful performance showed the intricacies of what so many women are going through in abusive relationships, and I truly believe this helped open up the conversation that so many people are having now about people who are facing this same struggle with abuse and harassment in their own lives. I truly believe that.

I’ve worked in Hollywood for 25 years and I’ve never seen anyone transform so completely. I was in awe of the ways that she would go into scenes, shooting some of the most violent and tormented scenes her character experiences and our director would say, “Cut!” And she was back, talking about schools and kids and holiday plans and eating these weird snacks. She eats really weird snacks when we’re on set. And drinks this cappuccino and sprinkles hot chocolate on the top and then eats it. It’s very bizarre. But I suddenly understood the truth about her. And to talk, what John Cameron [Mitchell] was saying about empathy — her magic is her empathy, because she truly deeply cares, and empathy is magic, and that’s the ability that she has to break audiences open. She gives you her whole heart, her whole soul, her whole body. Every side of a character. The light, the dark. She’s unwaveringly passionate. She gives of herself. She stands up for what she believes in and she pushes the envelope with every single role she takes. So there it is, now you know it. She’s a magician. She’s magic and she’s one of the greatest actresses I’ve ever known, and it is a privilege to watch her work. And I just…I just I love you so much! I think you’re so wonderful and if anybody has any follow-up questions about Nicole’s career, I will be available after this brief clip of all of her films.

A big thank you to Vulture from the transcript of Reese’s intro.

Keith Urban was a big winner at the 2017 American Music Awards!

The 50-year-old singer won three awards during Sunday’s show in Los Angeles. When it was announced he won Favorite Male Country Artist, Urban went on stage to accept his award. While up there, it was also revealed that he won two other awards, Best Country Song and Best Country Album.

Urban received all three awards while up on stage and he had a hard time holding them, so two of the awards were given to his wife, Nicole Kidman, who was seated in the audience.

“It was an amazing feeling,” Urban told E! News exclusively after his wins. “I was glad Nic was there with me.”

Urban went on to share with us, “This is an amazing feeling tonight, the fact that it was fan-voted just means everything.”

So what did the couple do to celebrate?
Take a look at what Urban told us about their post-show plans in the video above!

In times which Nicole Kidman calls “extraordinary,” the actress is managing to fly above it all — courtesy of some high-fashion wings and a bit of love and positivity.

Dressed in a Christian Dior tiered gown adorned with a literal cartoon bird, Kidman accepted her Glamour Women of the Year award Monday night at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, New York, explaining that her dress was a reminder of the individual’s limitless potential.

“I want to be able to say thank you for supporting me, for embracing me, for giving me chances, for allowing me to fall and fail, and then allowing me to get back up and brush off my knees, even if they’re bloodied, and fly,” she said. “I’m wearing wings tonight, and I tell you, to all of those young girls and boys, even if your wings get clipped, you can build them back and you can fly.”

The message came after the actress thanked her husband Keith Urban for his unyielding support, admitting that despite being a “strong woman,” she still needs the help her partner, for more than a decade, offers her.

“He gives me so much strength at times, and he gives me so much love,” she said, adding, “I’m very, very fortunate and I know so many people in this room don’t have that, but I have it, and I want to acknowledge it.”

But ultimately, it was Kidman’s upbringing, she explained, in a household consisting of a feminist mother and a loving father where “everyone was equal” that taught Kidman the concept of “good love.” It what she uses to navigate “unchartered territories.” (The actress did not directly mention politics or the current climate in Hollywood in a post-Weinstein era, but spoke instead to vague concepts of uneasiness.)

The Big Little Lies actress ended her speech — in a night with several political calls-to-action from fellow Women of the Year, including Gigi Hadid, Maxine Waters and Samantha Bee — with a warning that, Dior dresses aside, birds of a feather, should no longer, flock together.
“It’s so easy for us to gravitate towards the places in the world that are safe,” the actress said. “The people who are most like us the people, whose gender whose sexuality or race we share, but I’m convinced the galvanization of all of us together is what’s essential. I truly believe we must share the good love that we receive whenever we see that it’s needed.

“It’s about building bridges. Bridges bring understanding, they bring empathy, but they bring change, and that’s what we need, we need change.”

Such a beautiful tribute to a beautiful person! Thank you Glamour!

Keith Urban’s first impression of his wife Nicole Kidman will leave you in tears.

Consider a sampling of the emotions Nicole Kidman brings out in her roles: the sociopathic charm in To Die For (1995), the soul-destroying grief in Birth (2004), the suicidal genius in The Hours (2002), the frightening dissociation in HBO’s Big Little Lies (2017), and the chilling reserve in the just-released The Killing of a Sacred Deer. The breadth of her work is tremendous. And she is also an extraordinary instrument of change—one who flexes her personal power not only in the world of motion pictures and television but also as a U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador since 2006. Her efforts are geared toward raising awareness about women’s rights around the world, with a focus on violence against women. Says the Oscar and Emmy winner: “I have seen that there is no limit to what women can achieve when given the opportunity.”
