Granny Freeze and a Baby
There was a time, immediately after her split from the GMD, at the height of Moulin Rouge and The Hours, when Nicole Kidman stood tall atop the Love List. Loved her.
And then the face stopped moving and a new famewhore was born - hellbent on manufacturing a relationship to combat aging, to convince us of her desirability through a “once in a lifetime” love affair despite mounting evidence to the contrary, to say nothing of the bi-monthly arranged photos of her patting a bloated belly resulting in incessant speculation about a possible baby, Nicole sold and spun and took Keith along for the right.
In recent months however, while filming in Australia, Granny Freeze has taken it down a notch, scaling back the shameless tit for tat publicity war with the GMD and his RoboBride and focusing quietly on family and work. All good.
Here she is shopping with her sister and her sister’s new baby in Sydney. From this distance she looks almost natural again. Almost.
Something about the lips isn’t quite right, non?
As for her best friend Naomi Watts and the pending baby – many of you have written to ask: will Nicole visit? Has their friendship cooled because Naomi can’t stand being relegated to second fiddle every time Nicole’s around? Is Nicole incapable of happiness for someone else’s good fortune?
Or is it simply a scheduling issue?
You tell me.
