Finally. Nicole Kidman has finally beat Julia Roberts. Top female earner in Hollywood according to the Hollywood Reporter, with Reese Witherspoon nipping at her heels. Keep in mind though that Julia’s taken 2 years off. Once she roars back into action with those horsey chompers, I’m not so sure Nicole’s reign will have much longevity.
Still…for the moment, let her savour her triumph. The cover of Vogue (looking positively waxed), a wonderful new image as “the woman standing by her man”, waiting patiently as he cleans himself up with her devotion and support, a new movie garnering critical acclaim, perhaps in contention for another Oscar…quite a year for Nicole, non?
And to answer that question, a common query from the naysayers:
Why would she have to enter into that contract? For what possible reason?
Everyone in Hollywood has an ego, y’all. And as I’ve said before, a decade with the GMD has taught her every valuable trick in the book.
But smut lurks around the corner. Wait for it.
Anyway, here’s Nicole, fresh from her crowning of Julia Roberts, in Geneva yesterday, looking lovely and remarkably unfrozen, and I’ve been trying to make out a little bump – the one referred to by UK tabloids earlier this week when they pronounced her pregnant for the 10th time in as many months – and I see nothing but flat abs.
Maybe you’ll have better luck in finding it. Let me know.
