'Queen of Cannes' hits red carpet


Nicole Kidman looked like a prima ballerina on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet, making a graceful entrance to her latest premiere in a stunning full net skirt.

"At this stage of my life, I'm just trying to stay very bold and open and try things and support film-makers I believe in".

The movie poster for "The Killing of the Sacred Deer". She, along with colleagues yesterday presented a picture of "How to talk to girls at parties", in which she played the flamboyant "Queen of punks".

Kidman did acknowledge that, in spite of a career that has spanned 33 years, one Oscar, and four total nominations, she is hungrier than ever for experience-hence the kind of productivity that culminates with four projects premiering mere days apart. "It is not something I was aware would happen".

Planned Parenthood says it is closing Bettendorf clinic
After closing locations in Sioux City, Burlington, Keokuk, the Quad Cities and Bettendorf, eight will remain open in the state. Planned Parenthood's Rocky Mountain region includes Colorado, New Mexico , Wyoming , and southern Nevada.

'I did Lion in Australia and for Top of The Lake I went back, ' Kidman said on Monday. Now, Nicole opens up about the Yorgos Lanthimos written and directed thriller, revealing the real reason she keeps her creative life separate from her family life. Both cheers and boos followed its morning screening, though critics largely praised Lanthimos' allegorical horror. "We never dealt with it with seriousness. I did Paddington", she said, referencing the 2014 family comedy. I've worked with a lot of young actresses and actors recently and it's a nice thing to be able to offer. I don't have to work.

"But when I choose a director to work with, obviously that's a risk and I'm totally up for taking risks", the actress said. "I've always had that slightly rebel spirit where I don't want to conform and I want to find a way not to". That might mean working with a longstanding friend like Jane Campion "whom I have known since I was 14 and who basically discovered me".

Kidman wasn't shy of putting on an amorous display with husband, singer Keith Urban, for the cameras either.

In The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos tells the story of a mother (Kidman) whose children (Raffey Cassidy and Sunny Suljic) are mysteriously paralyzed, after an encounter with a teenage stalker, Martin (Barry Keoghan). Like many sought-after actors and directors, Kidman has been drawn by top-drawer television series, including her recent hit "Big Little Lies".
