Think Nicole Kidman Is Too Old and Icy To Be Attractive? Her Scantily Clad Bum Begs To Differ

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | August 23, 2012 | Comments ()


Yesterday I mentioned Dan Harmon was doing an AMA on Reddit. In case you missed it, here are the highlights including some very very bad news* for Alison Brie fans and good news for his red-headed fans the world over. (Uproxx)

Like most of us, the lads over at Film School Rejects rewatched True Romance this week in honor of Tony Scott. Here are 32 Things they learned from the commentary. Val Kilmer used to call Tony Scott late at night and sing Elvis songs to him? Idea Alert: Fat Kilmer as Fat Elvis. Make it so, Hollywood. (FSR)

Everyone's excited and suitably creeped out for Season 2 of "American Horror Story," right? If not check out these promos. Each one is skin crawlier than the last. (WG)

Speaking of things that make your skin crawl, I'm not sure I ever needed to see Sofia Vergara dress up as Lucy Ricardo. And yet, here we are. She looks like she's having a stroke. (Vulture)

Check out who's heading up the list of contenders for a Nobel Prize in Literature. If you like plodding, esoteric dream narratives, you'll be delighted. (Vulture)

Did anyone else catch the "one night only" screening of Singing In the Rain on the big screen yesterday? Just me and my aged relatives? Okay then. Well it was fantastic. That movie holds up like a champ. In honor of Gene Kelly's centennial (today), Nathaniel from TFE has put together his 50 Favorite Actors. Agree? Disagree? Enjoy the pretty photos? (TFE)

Speaking of photographic splendor, Nicole Kidman lets it all hang out in this spread for V Magazine. (Celebitchy)

You had just one job, man. ONE. JOB. #20 is, of course, my favorite. (Buzzfeed)

This right here is the best baby cosplay I've seen since The Alien Chestburster Baby. Does anyone have a baby I can borrow and dress up real funny like? (Fashionably Geek)

Speaking of chestbursters, Spaceballs, the Blu-ray, is available for cheap. Snap it up realy quick! Like, plaid quick! (Nerd Approved)

The more images I see of Matt Damon and Michael Douglas in the Liberace biopic, the more excited and squirmy I get. The Farrah hair on Matt Damon is incredible. Has anyone done an Oscars/wig breakdown? I'm thinking you never go full layered. (Collider)

As a stalwart "Bunhead" fans, I was interested in this article on what Amy Sherman-Palladino can do in Season 2 to make the "pretty good" show even better. I say import more actors from "The Gilmore Girls." Kirk, Zach, Gypsy, Mitch Huntzberger and Digger simply weren't enough. (Vulture)

Finally. I'm writing to you from Day Three of an Extended Family Vacation. So, trust me, I can relate to this movie temper tantrum supercut. Ralph Fiennes wins, yes? Or is Citizen Kane truly the best movie of all time in every category ever?

*Okay, yes, fake news.

Joanna Robinson is about to go fling an inner tube into the river. SO THERE.

  • It's fun to watch those Citizen Kane clips while imagining him grunting like Frankenstein's monster. Go ahead, try it!

  • Green_Eggs_and_Hamster

    My God, that Vergara picture looks like a bad photo-shop job. The head doesn't look like it belongs to the same body. That thing is scary.

    if you guys notice this comment, i hope you will check my
    photos out there.

    maybe you are the one who i'm looking for!!!

  • I think I'm gonna have to side with Tom and Lorenzo's take on Kidman's photos: Why? and: Seriously, Nicole? Those pics just seem so...unnecessary and kind of sad.

    "By all means, shatter that image, and there’s nothing wrong with a lady
    wanting to look hot, but flashing your panties and fondling your boobs?
    That’s Lohan territory." Amen.

  • SorayaS

    I did not understand all the shock over at TLo- it's just a movie-themed photo shoot, people! Remember how we had to see Portman do a year of ballet-themed shit?! Kidman's latest role is a white trash nymphomaniac- it's just business y'all!

  • Heeee that video helped relieve some stress.

    But I think my favorite moment was Jack Black. I think maybe because that's kind of what I look like when I get super angry. Lots of flailing and punching inanimate objects.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Honestly, when you said "Nobe Prize for Literature" my first thought was , "Oh, I hope it's Murakami!", but I've thought that every year since the late-1990s. I LOVE his writing, even if I am reading it in translation.

    "Age certainly hadn't conferred any smarts on me. Character maybe, but mediocrity is a constant, as one Russian writer put it. Russians have a way with aphorisms. They probably spend all winter thinking them up."

    "The man cleared his throat, then fell silent. This was a definitive silence, one you could judge the qualities of other silences by."

    "When I was little, I had this science book. There was a section on “What would happen to the world if there was no friction?” Answer: “Everything on earth would fly away into space from the centrifugal force of revolution.” That was my mood."

  • chartreusan

    What books are those quotations from? I MUST KNOW MORE!

  • Mrs. Julien

    They're from several - Dance, Dance, Dance/A Wild Sheep Chase/Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World.

  • chartreusan

    Amazing; thank you! TO THE LOCAL BOOK EMPORIUM!

  • Pinky McLadybits

    I am so glad that I wasn't the only one that saw that horrendous Sophia Vergara as Lucille Ball and thought, "SWEET JESUS! She's mugging like a toothless whore about to gum a businessman in a Stony Ridge parking lot!" Wait, I am the only one that thought that?

  • Groundloop

    Where exactly is this "Stony Ridge" of which you speak? For I am a business man.

  • I'd like to see a baby AS chestburster costume. One of those frontal baby slings hugging baby to chest, with bloody gore all around it to make it look like the baby is bursting out. Maybe a cute little hat to make it look like an Alien alien.

  • Oh, Joanna needs a baby to put in a funny costume? I'm all about it, let's do this! Let's just see what we-- AH!! AH, OH GOD NO! KILL IT WITH FIRE!

  • You'd HAVE to borrow someone else's kid for that, because I don't think you'd be able to look at your child the same way again after seeing him in that getup.

  • I'm sorry, the Vergara/Lucy thing just makes me want to watch Rat Race again. And yeah, so Nicole's pictures are hot enough, I guess, (Personally I thought she was hotter in Batman Forever.), but how are we ignoring that Celine Dion did a similar sexy photo shoot for the same magazine???!? Celine-Effing-Dion. Add that to your list of signs of the apocalypse.

  • Devin McMusters

    Rat Race!

  • Slash

    What the hell? They took the beautiful Sofia Vergara and turned her into a 1950s drag queen. Or she's gonna be in a remake of "Mommy Dearest."

  • Siham

    Does anyone actually think those are good phots of Nicole Kidman? They've shined the brightest, whitest, light on her. It's creepy. It looks terrible.

  • Also, Nicole Kidman's got a serious Meg Ryan vibe going on in that header photo.

  • I was *just* going to write that she pretty much looks just like her. Same doc, I wonder?

  • Meaning Meg before she went all Crypt Keeper, I presume.

  • $27019454

    No. Nicole Kidman is the cryptkeeper.

  • jzhz

    Would love to see that header question asked of a man in his 40's...

  • NynjaSquirrel

    As a man in my early fourties - I would go there in an INSTANT! : )

  • Sirilicious

    English is not my mothertongue and i always interpreted a tantrum as an overblown reaction, usually to something trivial. I don't think Keanu reacting to the death of his friend and partner in Speed as overblown.

    Is it me?

  • But it's Keanu! Trying to act! that's always funny.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Same here.

  • Wait, so Harmon's departure from "Community" has denied us a Richard Ayoade guest-starring episode??? DAMN YOU TO HELL, SONY!!!

  • Bert_McGurt

    After hearing the explanation of why he was so pissed at Chevy, I kind of understand why he reacted the way he did.

  • Tinkerville

    My heart broke when I read that. I would've killed to see that happen.

  • remingtonsteal

    Reading "
    She looks like she’s having a stroke." and looking at that picture has made my afternoon. I am literally biting the inside of my cheek to keep from laughing at my desk.

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    From the special Lucille Ball episode of "Snapped"?

  • BarbadoSlim

    A little Sofia Vergara goes a long way.

  • Samantha Klein

    I'm so glad you mentioned Gene Kelly's birthday today. I was also singing along at a theater last night. :) Shameless self promotion time: My movie blog has been celebrating Gene Kelly week, and today's post is a bit of a walk through his career. I'd love it if people were interested in checking it out. Thought about sending this in for P. Love; guess maybe I ought've.


  • Anne At Large

    I was glad to see that on here too, I missed seeing it in the theater last night and I'm so sad! Npr had a nice little thing about him today though and I smiled the whole time.

    Love your roundup, I may have to dig out American in Paris to watch tonight.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Thanks SO much for the American Horror Story promos! This is the time of year when I am sick of Summer and ready for Fall and I start fantasizing about Halloween. It's working!!!!

  • John G.

    I am so with you on this.

  • Pinky McLadybits

    I've been doing Halloween crafts already. You should see my sparkly red vampire blood in a bottle!
