Featured Article: Nicole Kidman for Marie Claire US October 2018


Nicole Kidman has gone from ingenue to serious dramatic actress (and has an Oscar and Emmy to prove it). Coming up, she stars alongside Russell Crowe in ‘Boy Erased’ (in theaters Nov 2) where actress brings her signature humanity and heart. Of his fellow Australian co-star, Crowe says, “I waited a long time to be married to Nicole.”

Here for Marie Claire, Kidman opens up combating fear, her philosophy on giving back, her conflicts with male directors in the #MeToo era, and much more.

On whether she’s ruled by her heart or her head as an artist: “I always say I’m a pretty even mix, but I’m probably dominated by [my heart]. If you don’t come from a feeling place, you just end up with an enormous amount of technique. I have this [brains], but that can be overruled. It fluctuates too. I have a strong sexuality. It’s a huge part of who I am and my existence.”

On her feminist roots: “We’d get teased in school: ‘Oh your mom is so radical.’ At the time we’d roll our eyes and be embarrassed. But my sister and I are both advocates now. It was an incredible gift to be given.”

On combating fear: “…I was raised by stoics. It’s a philosophy, a way of behaving and being in the world, which I kind of don’t have. I have a little bit of it, but I have far more of, like, ‘Oh my God, how am I going to get through this? …I can’t get up! I think once you have children, your resilience is built, and your ability to go, ‘OK, I can’t wallow…”

On her philosophy of giving back: “The day after I won [the Emmy for Big Little Lies], I was in San Francisco doing a fundraiser for domestic violence. It’s probably the Catholic in me, but as soon as there’s some sort of glory or you receive something, you then have got to immediately counteract it with giving back.”

On her conflicts with male directors accused of sexual misconduct: “I look at those films that Polanski made, and they’re amazing. I’m sort of navigating through it myself with my own moral compass. What do you do? Do you ban it? Or see it as art? Or judge it in this time looking back at that time? I have no answer.” (source)

Featured Article: Zoë Kravitz for Harper’s Bazaar US October 2018


In the October issue of Harper’s BAZAAR US, Zoë Kravitz runs with wolves and goes completely unretouched—celebrating the spirit of the actress in her natural state. Speaking with her Big Little Lies co-star Reese Witherspoon, Zoë opens up about her childhood and famous family, the lack of representation in Hollywood and how humor influences her coveted style.

Zoë wears Louis Vuitton dress and Cartier earrings on the cover photographed by Camilla Akrans with styling by Patrick Mackie. Hair and makeup by Nikki Nelms and Nina Park.

On appearing completely unretouched for Harper’s BAZAAR:

Reese Witherspoon: “I’m learning so much about you. For some celebrities, the fact that your shoot was about unretouched images would be more frightening than facing a pack of wolves. Did you have any anxiety about that?”

Zoë Kravitz: “I was a little scared when they told me. What scared me most was that I was scared about it… [but after retouching] You’re like, ‘That is 100 percent not what I look like!’”

On speaking out against racial stereotyping in Hollywood: “I’m not necessarily trying to point the finger at anyone. I just want to make these writers, most of whom are probably white, aware of the things that affect me and likely affect other people as well. I’m trying to speak my mind and shift things so Hollywood can be more conscious about things. My biggest pet peeve is when I read scripts that have character descriptions like ‘Stacy, 22, perky,’ then you get four pages in and see, ‘Sarah, 22, African-American,’ which makes it clear that everyone else is white.”

On growing up biracial and her grandmother, Roxie Roker’s legacy of inspiring change: “When I got older I realized, ‘Oh, that’s why it was a big deal that my grandmother was married to a white man on the show [The Jeffersons].’ I had mixed parents, so I didn’t see it as a big deal. Then when I was educated about what the world was like, I was like, ‘This is a huge deal.’ It was brave of her to go there. I don’t think her intention was to shake things up. It was actually her truth: She was married to a white man.” (source)

Featured Article: Julianne Moore for Town & Country October 2018


Academy Award winner Julianne Moore (in Chanel Couture and Chanel Fine Jewellery) stars in this month’s release of Bel Canto (in theaters September 14), based on Ann Patchett’s best-selling 2001 novel of the same name. Moore plays Roxane, a world class opera singer taken hostage while performing at a politician’s party in South America. In the film, Roxane’s singing voice is provided by the opera star Renée Fleming, whose own soprano is the voice Patchett had in mind when she wrote the character.

The October cover of Town & Country is photographed by Tom Munro with styling by Nicoletta Santoro.

On how she related to Roxane in Bel Canto: “A character who had been in Paris by herself, that was something I could relate to, because before I had a family I would find myself in a location all by myself and think, ‘This isn’t the kind of life I want to have. She lives without any kind of community.’”

On opera in the modern day: “I think that’s the tragedy of opera in the modern day, that most people’s access to it comes through TV, and it sounds, unfortunately, the same. But being so close to these musical masters, you hear the different qualities of their voices unamplified.”

On what her daughter thinks of the roles she chooses: “…Oddly, a lot of my roles get lumped together. There was a series of 1950s housewives that were all thrown at me at the same time. Or you do a bunch of funny things all at once. MY daughter recently asked me about a project, ‘Do you die again, Mom? I feel you like you always die.’

On the most important element to her acting method: “For me the most important thing is research. If I’m playing an opera singer, I better learn what it is to be an opera singer or be able to approximate it. I’m going to know my lines. I’m going to know the music. I’m going to know all of that stuff. But then that preparation allows you to drop it on camera.” (source)
