Nicole Kidman reflects on her career: ‘I went through a huge time when I didn’t have good choices’

Nicole Kidman is one of many Hollywood actresses who epitomizes longevity.

The 52-year-old performer is set to star in the limited series “The Undoing,” based on the novel “You Should Have Known” by Jean Hanff Korelitz.

The “Big Little Lies” star opened up to reporters on Wednesday at the Television Critics Association (TCA) winter press tour at the Langham Huntington in Pasadena, Calif., about what she’s happy at this stage in her career, seeing as though she has seemingly done it all.

“Just being able to have good choices. I went through a huge time when I didn’t have good choices,” Kidman explained following the series panel for “The Undoing.”

“So many actors don’t have choices, to even have a choice is an extraordinary opportunity,” she continued. “[…] I went to [executive producer and director] Susanne [Bier] with the series and said, ‘Do you want to do this?'”

“She was the only director we went to and she said yes. And that is just a wonderful thing,” Kidman said.

Along with acting, Kidman has also been growing her resume behind the camera as an executive producer and director on a number of projects.

“To then take ‘The Expatriates’ to Hulu and go, ‘Do you want to do this?’ And [you get a] ‘Yes.’ […] It’s just a wonderful thing as an actor, and particularly a woman who’s the age that I am, being able to have a say — as I’ve always said — and not having somebody else choose for me,” she added.

For Kidman — who, according to her IMDb page, currently has 17 projects in development — the challenge of harmonizing her work and personal life is a balancing act that requires planning. When asked how she manages to do it all, Kidman said she took some much needed time off.

“Oh, I took five months off. […] I actually was off as soon as […] I finished this in June and I didn’t go back to [work] […] I only started filming again with Ryan [Murphy] right now on ‘The Prom.’ So I’ve actually had quite a long break. It doesn’t seem like it. But I did,” she said. “Thank you.”

Last week, Deadline reported that Melissa McCarthy would be joining Kidman in Hulu’s limited series “Nine Perfect Strangers,” based on “Big Little Lies” author Liane Moriarty’s latest novel. McCarthy is set to also executive produce the project alongside the usual suspects behind “BLS,” David E. Kelly, Bruna Papandrea’s Made Up Stories and Kidman’s own production arm, Blossom Films.

“The Undoing” is slated to premiere in the spring as a six-part limited series on HBO and also stars Hugh Grant and Norma Dumezweni.

Julia Roberts, husband Daniel Moder make rare public appearance together to support Sean Penn’s charity event

Julia Roberts stepped out for a date night with her husband Daniel Moder, and the couple posed for a rare picture to remind folks of how great of a pair they are —  in case we all forgot.

The “Pretty Woman” actress, 52, and director, 50, attended the 2020 CORE Gala Wednesday evening at the famed Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles, where fellow performer and social activist Sean Penn’s organization celebrated its 10-year anniversary and raised money for disaster relief and preparedness work throughout the world.

Roberts graced the event donning a matching green-and-black plaid skirt and jacket, which she paired with black fishnet stockings and black patent leather shoes – her signature locks accenting the ensemble. For Moder, the cinematographer kept it classic in a black suit and white collared shirt, sans tie.

The longtime couple married in 2002 and share three children.

Also in attendance to support Penn and his cause were Leonardo DiCaprio and Alyssa Milano, both of whom are outspoken on sociopolitical and climate change issues. Rapper G-Eazy, Connie Britton, Naomi Campbel, Patricia Arquette, Jason Derulo and Rachel Zoe were among others also in attendance.

JULIA ROBERTS GETS SWEET BIRTHDAY WISH FROM NIECE EMMA ROBERTS

For Penn’s work, his organization has provided much-needed assistance to numerous nations ravaged by natural disasters including, Haiti, the Bahamas, the Caribbean and the U.S.

The charity, which was launched on the heels of the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti, raised a whopping $5 million.

According to Entertainment Tonight, DiCaprio donated a lithograph that fetched $110,000 at the charity’s auction, hosted by Conan O’Brien as master of ceremonies.

Oscar 2020 nominations’ biggest snubs, from Adam Sandler to Beyonce

It’s official. The Oscars have turned into a big joke.

Nominations for the 92nd annual Academy Awards were announced this morning in Hollywood. Leading the way is the global juggernaut “Joker,” with an impressive 11 nominations – including best actor for Joaquin Phoenix. Martin Scorsese’s crime drama “The Irishman,” the World War 1 epic “1917” and Quentin Tarantino’s star-studded “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” are all right behind with 10 nominations.

But not everyone in Hollywood is smiling today.

FRANCES MCDORMAND ALLEGED OSCAR THIEF WON’T BE PROSECUTED

Here are the five most notable Oscar snubs:

Jennifer Lopez, best-supporting actress in “Hustlers” 

Westlake Legal Group jennifer-lopez-stripper-hustlers-display Oscar 2020 nominations' biggest snubs, from Adam Sandler to Beyonce Tariq Khan fox-news/person/jennifer-lopez fox-news/person/beyonce fox-news/person/adam-sandler fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment/events/oscars fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 8c066ab9-6148-5ac2-9045-91a2f0833e3c

This image released by STXfilms shows Jennifer Lopez, in a scene from “Hustlers,” which was released to theaters on Sept. 13. Lopez stars as Ramona, a leader of strippers in a Robin Hood-esque scheme to steal from rich men. (AP)

Jennifer Lopez’s role as a clever and conniving New York City stripper earned her the finest reviews of her career. The highbrow Los Angeles Film Critics Association named her the year’s best-supporting actress, and she scored Golden Globe, Critics Choice and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) nominations to boot. The Academy didn’t follow suit, dropping her in favor of Kathy Bates in Clint Eastwood’s controversial “Richard Jewell.” Bates already has an Oscar, for the 1990’s “Misery.” Today, she inflicted the misery on JLo, stealing her best chance ever for Academy recognition.

Robert De Niro, best actor in “The Irishman”

He’s always had good fortune in collaborations with Martin Scorsese – who directed him to Oscar victory in the 1980 classic “Raging Bull.” While “The Irishman” reaped supporting actor nods for castmates Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, the luck of the Irish didn’t extend to De Niro. The two-time Oscar champion last contended for the 2012 film “Silver Linings Playbook.” He’s still a nominee today, as a producer for best picture heavyweight “The Irishman.” At least there’s a silver lining.

KEVIN HART ADMITS HE WAS ‘IMMATURE’ ABOUT OSCARS SCANDAL OVER ANTI-GAY TWEETS

Christian Bale, best actor in “Ford v Ferrari”

The highly regarded method actor was moving fast toward a fifth nomination. His performance as a professional race car driver put him into both the Golden Globe and SAG races. The film’s surprise best picture nomination and box office success might have brought him along for the ride. However, he somehow hit a speedbump, crashing outside of the final five. Bale is considered one of the world’s most distinguished actors. Hopefully, he has an equally good sport.

Adam Sandler, best actor in “Uncut Gems”

Westlake Legal Group AP20009235793229 Oscar 2020 nominations' biggest snubs, from Adam Sandler to Beyonce Tariq Khan fox-news/person/jennifer-lopez fox-news/person/beyonce fox-news/person/adam-sandler fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment/events/oscars fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 8c066ab9-6148-5ac2-9045-91a2f0833e3c

He’s more known for Golden Raspberry Awards (which recognize the worst in cinema) than Oscars, so his omission today is hardly a surprise. Still, his well-received work in “Uncut Gems” earned him best actor honors from the National Board of Review, plus a hard-to-get Critics Choice Award nomination. An Oscar nod for “Gems” would have been a jewel, but the competition was just too tough. He recently threatened to make the worst movie ever if the Academy overlooked him. All I can say is, “That’s My Boy.”

The original 1994 animated feature won this category for Elton John’s “Can You Feel the Love Tonight.” Beyonce’s Golden Globe nomination for “Spirit” hinted that the Academy might feel the love for her — and her emotional tune in the much-anticipated “Lion King” remake. But Beyonce was shut out as Sir Elton rocketed in, for “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” from “Rocketman.” Beyonce may need to sing John’s lyrics herself, as a way to lift her own Oscarless spirit.

Prince Harry might have sparked Disney’s interest in Meghan Markle for a voiceover deal that she recently signed.

On Saturday, it was announced that Markle, 38, had signed a deal with Disney to provide a voiceover for an upcoming project from the studio in exchange for a donation to a non-profit benefiting elephants in Botswana.

In a video obtained by the Daily Mail, Harry, 35, could be seen speaking with Disney CEO Bob Iger at the premiere of “Lion King” last summer.

PRINCE HARRY, MEGHAN MARKLE: WILL THEY GO HOLLYWOOD LIKE THE OBAMAS? NETWORK EPS WEIGH IN

“You know, she does voiceovers,” Harry could be heard saying to Iger, 68, as the prince pointed to his wife.

“Oh really, I did not know that,” Iger said.

“She’s really interested,” said Harry.

“We’d love to try,” Iger responded.

Markle was present for the conversation but was speaking with Beyoncé and Jay-Z at the time.

PRINCE HARRY, MEGHAN MARKLE’S EXIT TALKS ‘PROGRESSING WELL’ WITH ROYAL FAMILY: REPORT

The premiere where they spoke actually served as a partnership between Disney and the royals, as it raised funds for Harry’s African wildlife conservation efforts.

Following Harry and Markle’s announcement that they’d “step back” from their royal duties, rumors have swirled that the pair will follow in the Obamas’ footsteps and sign a production deal, using Hollywood as a medium to promote charitable causes.

“I think they can definitely do it,” said Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson in reference to the royal couple working in Hollywood. Jackson has served as a producer for several television shows.

It was previously announced that Harry also would partner with Oprah Winfrey to produce a mental health-centered documentary for Apple TV+.

Salma Hayek reveals a monkey ‘severely injured’ her on movie set

Westlake Legal Group Salma-Hayek-film Salma Hayek reveals a monkey 'severely injured' her on movie set Jessica Napoli fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc cb7451ef-1d6d-5586-92f4-f55e84f8c27f article

Salma Hayek suffered a traumatic on-set injury while making a movie in 2002.

The actress, 53, revealed while making “Frida” she was attacked by a monkey that was used in the film.

Hayek explained in a video interview with Vogue magazine that she also had to do a photoshoot with the same monkey later that year.

SALMA HAYEK STUNS IN LEOPARD PRINT SWIMSUIT

“This next one is 2002 when I did ‘Frida’ and this was in Vogue, and I was very proud to be part of Vogue for the first time in my life. This monkey, who was named Tyson, actually attacked me during the filming of ‘Frida,’ and I was really severely injured,” she described.

“But I was brave enough to let him come back and work again in the movie, and then I still did a photoshoot with him for Vogue afterward,” Hayek added. “I was really hoping he wouldn’t go for my face.”

Hayek is no stranger to monkeys though. In 2015, she revealed her “Desperado” co-star Antonio Banderas once gifted her two monkeys and she named them Mariachi and Carolina.

SALMA HAYEK SWEARS OFF COSMETIC SURGERY AFTER TRYING LIP INJECTIONS FOR MOVIE ROLE

“I had fallen in love with these two monkeys that were supposed to be in the movie ‘Desperado’ and then they got cut out,” she told Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night show. “I was spending all my time with them and they were gonna take them away and I was sobbing because they were actually staying with me. I was devastated.”

“The next day was my birthday and he [Banderas] gave me this big box and my monkeys came out of it. He gave me the monkeys… They lived for a long time and very happily,” she explained.

SALMA HAYEK SAYS HER ‘BIG BUTT’ RIPPED HER 2003 OSCARS GOWN

“Mariachi was so nice to me, he was kinda in love with me; he wanted to be with me all the time and of course Carolina was jealous. That witch was awful to me; she was so possessive. She’d go crazy when we were hugging, and so we had a little bit of a (love) triangle,” Hayek joked.

Daniel Radcliffe says he was mistaken for a homeless man: ‘Apparently, I need to shave more often’

Daniel Radcliffe is famous but isn’t too recognizable all of the time.

The 30-year-old star, who garnered mega fame in his time playing the beloved Harry Potter, revealed as much during an appearance on the “Graham Norton Show” on Friday, sharing some interesting moments he’s experienced in public.

“It’s weird and funny, with some very odd moments,” Radcliffe said before launching into a tale about the time he was mistaken for a homeless man.

“I was in New York recently with my girlfriend and while she was in a shop, I was outside with our adopted dog. It was very cold, and I had on a hoodie, a fleece and then a big coat over the top,” Radcliffe explained (via Entertainment Tonight).

“Because it was so cold, I knelt down to warm the dog and I saw this guy looking at me and then he walked past me,” the actor continued. “But then he came back and handed me five dollars and said, ‘Get yourself a coffee mate.'”

Radcliffe obviously hasn’t fallen on hard times financially, however, the “Miracle Workers” star has been deeply open about the demons he personally faced while dealing with immense fame, revealing nearly a year ago that he had turned to alcohol as a teenager to cope.

“There is an awareness that I really struggled with, particularly in my late teens when I was going out to places for the first time where you would feel — again, it could have largely been in my head — where you would feel watched when you went into a bar, when you went into a pub,” the British actor explained during an interview with “Off Camera With Sam Jones.”

“In my case, the quickest way to forget you were being watched was to get very drunk,” he continued. “Then as you get very drunk, you become aware, ‘Oh, people are watching more now because now I’m getting very drunk, so I should probably drink more to ignore that more.’ It can affect your psyche.”

“There is no blueprint for starting young and working stuff out,” he told the interviewer. “That’s why whenever people are having a go at Justin Bieber drag-racing cars or whatever, I’m always like, ‘Yeah, but you never know. Stuff could be super crazy for him right now.’”

Adam Sandler says an Oscar nomination would be funny

Westlake Legal Group Adam-Sandler Adam Sandler says an Oscar nomination would be funny Nate Day fox-news/person/adam-sandler fox-news/entertainment/tv fox-news/entertainment/saturday-night-live fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment/genres/drama fox-news/entertainment/genres/comedy fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 628aa4d4-3a28-5ec0-a4a2-dfb8505b34db

Despite moving into more dramatic roles, Adam Sandler still has a good sense of humor.

The “SNL” alum, 53, is receiving Oscar buzz for his performance in the film “Uncut Gems,” which has shocked many fans due to his background in slapstick comedy and frequently being in films that receive poor reviews.

In the flick, Sandler plays a jeweler with a gambling problem that gets in over his head.

ADAM SANDLER’S ‘UNCUT GEMS’ RANKS 7TH FOR MOST F-WORDS IN FILM HISTORY

When asked what it would be like if he was nominated for an Academy Award, Sandler told ET: “It would be funny as h–l, man.”

Sandler was widely considered a significant snub when it came to the Golden Globe nominations and on Wednesday night, he took home the award for best actor from the National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala.

“It’s not why you make a movie,” he said. “This movie in particular, I knew it was something different and I was excited to do it… I’m psyched I got to be in this movie and that s–t would be good, too.”

ADAM SANDLER WAS ‘SCARED’ TO PORTRAY GAMBLING ADDICT IN ‘UNCUT GEMS,’ CREDITS WIFE FOR ‘STRENGTH AND COURAGE’

Sandler said that he doesn’t want to get his hopes up because he doesn’t want to feel too disappointed if he doesn’t receive the nomination.

The “Wedding Singer” star recently revealed that he insisted on changing one very specific thing in the script of “Uncut Gems” when he came on board.

In the film, Sandler’s character has a mistress, who was originally called Sadie, but Sandler requested they change her name.

“That’s my daughter’s name!” Sandler said. “And I said, ‘You can’t have my daughter’s name in this movie.'”

Buck Henry, the Hollywood screenwriter known for “The Graduate” and “What’s Up, Doc?” and who co-created the TV comedy series “Get Smart,” died Wednesday night in Los Angeles after suffering a heart attack, according to reports. He was 89 years old.

Many fans also know Henry for his frequent appearances on “Saturday Night Live” during its early years. For example, Henry was the sandwich-buying customer who appeared in the “Samurai Delicatessen” sketch with the late John Belushi.

“The Graduate,” released in 1967, made a star of Dustin Hoffman and earned Henry and co-writer Calder Willingham an Oscar nomination for their film adaptation of Charles Webb’s 1963 novel.

Hoffman’s co-star was Anne Bancroft, whose husband Mel Brooks had collaborated with Henry in the creation of “Get Smart,” which aired from 1965-1970. It starred Don Adams as Maxwell Smart, a hapless, comedic version of James Bond.

In 1978, Henry earned another Oscar nomination for directing Warren Beatty in the 1978 comedy “Heaven Can Wait.”

He also wrote the screenplay for the 1995 Nicole Kidman film, “To Die For.”

He also played Dick Lemon, father of Tina Fey’s character Liz Lemon, on “30 Rock,” Entertainment Weekly reported.

Parents of Aurora shooting victim call out ‘Joker’ director, Warner Bros.

The parents of an Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooting victim are calling out “Joker” director Todd Phillips and Warner Bros. over the film’s depiction of violence.

In an interview Monday with Fresh Air’s Terry Gross, Phillips said that he didn’t expect the backlash.

“We knew our intentions in making the movie. It kind of bummed us out that it was so divisive,” said Phillips, 49. “But it does seem to be that we live in an age of outrage now, and people look for things to be outraged about and they’re going to be outraged just about that comment, probably. It’s become a thing.”

“The good news is the movie obviously struck a chord and people were having discussions about it and arguing about its merits,” he added.

‘JOKER’ LEADS BAFTA NOMINATIONS

Following Phillips’ statement, Sandy and Lonnie Phillips — no relation to the director — released a statement via Twitter, calling out Todd Phillips and the film’s production company, Warner Bros.

“.@jokermovie director Phillips said yesterday we’re outraged about Joker for the sake of it. Wrong!” they said. “We’re outraged companies like @warnerbros profit from violent movies while failing to work to prevent actual gun violence. work w/ us — together, we can save lives.”

The tweet also contained a letter addressed directly to Todd Phillips.

‘JOKER’ STAR JOAQUIN PHOENIX, DIRECTOR TODD PHILLIPS: ‘YOU CAN’T BLAME MOVIES FOR A WORLD THAT IS SO F–KED UP’

“We are not outraged about ‘The Joker’ because it has become a ‘thing’ to ‘look for things to be outraged about,'” the letter read. “We are outraged because our daughter Jessica Ghawi was murdered by an individual who was easily able to obtain firearms and ammunition in Aurora, Colorado. We are outraged because since her death, approximately 272,700 more Americans lost their lives in gun violence.”

Sandy and Lonnie Phillips are parents to Jessica Ghawi, who died during a screening of “The Dark Night Rises” in 2012.

“We are outraged because in the face of such carnage, Warner Bros. continues to profit from movies that depict fictional acts of gun violence while donating to lawmakers and candidates who make it easier for individuals to obtain firearms and commit acts of violence in the real world,” the letter continues.

The parents called Todd Phillips’ comments “flippant and dismissive,” as well as stating that they are “outraged” that Warner Bros. has “refused to meet with survivors of gun violence.”

“We are outraged at your flippant and dismissive remarks about our very real concerns and we are outraged that Warner Bros. has refused to meet with survivors of gun violence,” they wrote in the letter.

After parents of the shooting’s victims publically raised concerns about “Joker” last year, Warner Bros. released a statement in response.

“Gun violence in our society is a critical issue, and we extend our deepest sympathy to all victims and families impacted by these tragedies,” the company said, adding that it “has a long history of donating to victims of violence, including Aurora, and in recent weeks, our parent company joined other business leaders to call on policymakers to enact bipartisan legislation to address this epidemic.”

“At the same time, Warner Bros. believes that one of the functions of storytelling is to provoke difficult conversations around complex issues. Make no mistake: neither the fictional character Joker, nor the film, is an endorsement of real-world violence of any kind. It is not the intention of the film, the filmmakers or the studio to hold this character up as a hero,” Warner Bros. added.

Reps for Todd Phillips and Warner Bros. did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
