Nicole Kidman is Celeste
Nicole Kidman attended the UNICEF Ball in Beverly Hills last night. If she’d been at the Globes on Sunday wearing this? It would have been my Best Dressed. Spectacular.
Nicole’s in LA right now working on the HBO adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies. You read it, right? It was confirmed last year that Nicole and Reese Witherspoon acquired the rights to the book and that David E Kelley would be writing it. I’m not a parent but I am fascinated by the Mommy Wars - the judging, the alliances, and, also, what we all hide behind our family portraits. It’s better then that this world will be unpacked over several episodes instead of in a feature film. We need that time to immerse ourselves in that community. I can’t wait to see it. And, as I noted in my post about the production, Nicole totally wants to be Celeste.
Pap photos from the set of Big Little Lies were released a few days ago. I don’t remember seeing any confirmation of the assignment of the roles but there is no doubt here who they’re all playing. Nicole, with the twins, is indeed Celeste. And Reese 100% is busybody Madeline. Then there’s Shailene Woodley playing Jane, and last week they announced that Alexander Skarsgard was taking on the part of Nicole’s husband, which makes him Perry. I won’t spoil it if you haven’t read the book but if you have, you know about Perry. That’s how Alex is going to bounce back from Tarzan. I like the move.
