I have taken the time to write up a biography about Nicole that highlights her life and some major points in her career. The information in the biography is taken from interviews and articles done on Nicole and is as accurate as I could make it. I learned a lot about her and have even more respect after compiling this information. I hope you enjoy it.

February 1, 2017   Ali   Big Little Lies, Magazines Be first to comment

Variety did a story about Big Little Lies for the cover of the January 31, 2017 issue of their magazine. They interviewed Nicole and her co-stars about the show.

Blame it on the weather. It was unseasonably cold in Monterey, Calif., when, deep into the 88-day shoot for “Big Little Lies” — after 10 straight days of late nights — the unthinkable happened: The usually unflappable Reese Witherspoon lost her temper. Faced with a difficult emotional scene, she yelled at director Jean-Marc Vallée.

Recalling the incident a few months later over tea at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, the two — who share an easy, effortless camaraderie — laugh at the memory. “I’m so sorry!” she tells him, sheepishly hiding her face in her hands. In his French-accented lilt, Vallée says, “I felt so sad because I knew it wasn’t her.”

But back in that fraught moment on the set, he turned to her and said, “Great! Let’s do it,” pushing her to channel her frustration into her performance. Vallée reports that Witherspoon — perfectly cast as the fast-talking, multitasking mother of two, Madeline Martha Mackenzie, in HBO’s new limited series about the tragic fallout of secrets in a small town — nailed the scene. (Based on the bestseller by Liane Moriarty, the seven-episode series debuts Feb. 19.)

Witherspoon, who serves as executive producer along with co-star Nicole Kidman, handpicked her “Wild” director for this creative reunion. (The 2014 film, based on Cheryl Strayed’s memoir, chronicles a woman’s journey of self-discovery as she hikes the Pacific Crest Trail.) “I feel safe with Jean-Marc — more safe than I’ve ever felt with anybody, because he’s my brother, he’s my partner; I know he’s always going to demand the best, but I’m always going to bring my best,” she says. “We hold each other to those standards. We don’t have any artifice between us.”

It’s not simply the cliché about finishing each other’s sentences (and, yes, they do) but about completing each other’s vision. They may disagree (see above), but starting with “Wild” and now with “Big Little Lies,” they’ve formulated a chemistry that brings out the best in both of them.

This time, their collaboration birthed a seven-hour film — yes, film. It just happens to be airing on a TV network. “I say episode six is better than most movies I’ve been in,” Witherspoon notes.

Vallée had originally signed on to direct only the first two hours, but under pressure from his star — “I called, texted, emailed,” Witherspoon confesses with a giggle — he quickly caved in and signed on for the full run.

“That’s the beauty about what’s going on right now with all the new players and what HBO is doing — inviting film people to play in their sandbox,” he says. “The line between film and TV series is very thin.”

Armed with a “generous” budget, he approached “Big Little Lies” as if it were a theatrical movie, breaking the five-month shoot down into two chunks. The crew shot four pages a day, just like a feature.

Variety shares that Nicole is in talks to join the Warner Brother’s film Aquaman.

Nicole Kidman is in early negotiations to join Warner Bros.’ “Aquaman” as the mother of the titular superhero, played by Jason Momoa.

Warner Bros. has set an Oct. 5, 2018, release date for “Aquaman.” James Wan is directing the superhero film with Peter Safran producing. Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, and Rob Cowan are executive producing.

“Aquaman” is based on the DC Comics character who’s king of Atlantis, born half-human as Arthur Curry and half-Atlantean. Aquaman’s mother is Atlanna, who has escaped the underwater kingdom and had a son with a lighthouse keeper.

Kidman was nominated for an Academy Award in the best supporting actress category for her work in “Lion.” She’s also starring in and executive producing HBO’s series “Big Little Lies.”

The studio is planning to start production in April in Australia. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who starred on Netflix’s “The Get Down, has been tapped to play the villain Black Manta.

Amber Heard is playing Mera, Aquaman’s love interest, and Willem Dafoe will portray Aquaman’s science advisor, Dr. Vulko.

Kidman is repped by CAA, Shanahan Management, and Media Talent Group.
