Nicole Kidman‘s 2017 is already shaping up to be a banner year: The actress is heading back to the Academy Awards having landed her fourth Oscar nomination for Lion, and she’s gearing up for the premiere of her HBO miniseries Little Big Lies later this month. But prior to the show’s debut, Kidman’s lending her famous face to another project: teaming up with Neutrogena to become their new Global Brand Ambassador.

“I’ve always been such a believer in having good skin,” Kidman tells PeopleStyle exclusively, adding that she feels this partnership with Neutrogena is “the right marriage.”

She’d already had a bit of a love affair with the brand: “Prior to working with them, I had their products because I’d read about them in magazines!”

For years she’s relied on their sunscreen with SPF 100 to protect her skin. “I’m so fair, that’s a godsend for me,” she says.

Not only is it a staple on Kidman’s vanity, she’s determined to instill the importance of sun protection in her daughters, Sunday Rose, 8 and Faith Margaret, 6. And she has husband Keith Urban‘s full support. “He’ll be like, ‘Get that sunscreen on those girls,’” she says.

While Kidman’s steadfast dedication to raising awareness about sun protection has already earned the praise of her friend Hugh Jackman, she’s hoping through her partnership with Neutrogena to reach an even larger audience. “I’ve grown up with an awareness of it. But [I’m] still always trying to teach people about it, as is Neutrogena. What would be so great would be to reduce skin cancer in the world.“

In a new campaign with the brand, the 49-year-old actress is also getting real about her skincare needs these days.

“I think when you’re really young, there’s cleanser and moisturizer, that’s it,” Kidman says in a behind-the-scenes clip teasing her upcoming commercial, which will be revealed during the Academy Awards on February 25.

“For me now, obviously, I’m of course looking to keep my skin as young as it can be. I mean, we all are, I think. So, I’m looking for products that can help that.”

One of her anti-aging MVPs: the brand’s Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream, “which is fantastic because it’s so hydrating,” she says.

Kidman joins a long list of Neutrogena Brand Ambassadors including Kristen Bell, Julie Bowen, Jennifer Garner, Olivia Holt, Hayden Panettiere and Kerry Washington.

TV Line.com gives us a review of Nicole’s new limited series Big Little Lies.

It’s tempting to take one look at the multimillion-dollar homes and luxury cars the characters have in Big Little Lies, and ask: “How can these people have any problems?” But as one character says, “You can’t make a perfect world. No matter what, s—t happens.”

S—t most certainly does happen in the star-studded HBO miniseries (debuting Sunday, Feb. 19 at 9/8c), including a grisly homicide that sends shockwaves through the seaside community of Monterey, California. But the great thing about Big Little Lies is: The murder is almost beside the point. The vicious battle for power and status waged between the Monterey moms is gripping enough, and serves as a showcase for some fantastic female performances.

Monterey is a town of big fake smiles and passive-aggressive politeness, and its filthy-rich moms take the term “helicopter parent” to a whole new level. (As one neighbor puts it, they’re more like “f—king kamikazes.”) That includes Madeline (Reese Witherspoon), a hard-charging “super mom” whose parenting isn’t all that super, and Celeste (Nicole Kidman), whose picture-perfect marriage is developing some cracks around the edges. The sense of place here is excellent, immersing us in a pristine yuppie utopia where these alpha moms rule with an iron fist.

The arrival of Jane (Shailene Woodley), an unpolished single mother with a checkered past, sparks a savage rift between the moms — with their kids getting caught in the crossfire. And we know someone ends up dead, with flash-forwards to a crime scene and nosy neighbors eagerly telling cops all the local gossip they’ve overheard. But the four episodes screened for critics not only don’t reveal the killer; they don’t even reveal who died. And it’s actually a brilliant storytelling choice, because you start to look at everyone as a potential suspect and victim.

Top to bottom, the Big Little Lies cast is stacked. We already know how good Witherspoon is at playing the chipper overachiever (see: Election; Legally Blonde), and she absolutely shines here as Madeline. The brittle vulnerability that Kidman brings to Celeste makes it some of her best work in years. And the deep bench of supporting actors includes Laura Dern as Madeline’s bitter rival Renata, Alexander Skarsgard as Celeste’s protective husband Perry and Adam Scott as Madeline’s “Mr. Sensitive” husband Ed. Everywhere you look, there’s an Emmy nomination waiting to happen.

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.

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.

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.
