Looks like Nicole Kidman's still got it.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kidman beat out practically every blonde in Hollywood vying to play the iconic Grace Kelly in the upcoming Grace of Monaco, an indie film focusing on a six-month period in 1962 when Grace maneuvered behind the scenes to save Monaco from a coup. The film is being directed by Olivier Dahan, who directed Marion Cotillard in the Edith Piaf biopic La Vie en rose, which she ended up winning an Oscar for.
Given how much critics love it when another actress portrays a legend (see Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe), this role is a big one, and also a bit of a surprise, no?
Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly? Call me crazy, but there are other Hollywood faces who a look a little (OK, a lot) closer to the real thing right?
January Jones, Amanda Seyfried, Carey Mulligan?!?
