Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban’s daughters dressed up to join their parents for the rare appearance

Nicole Kidman has her family by her side for the Golden Globes.

On Sunday night, The Undoing actress, 53, appeared virtually for the 2021 Golden Globes broadcast during the opening monologue, seated on a couch, all dressed up in a Louis Vuitton gown beside her husband Keith Urban, and their two daughters, Sunday Rose, 12, and Faith Margaret, 10, whom generally remain out of the spotlight.

Speaking with Marie Claire Australia for the magazine’s November issue, Kidman said her country singer husband has to retreat from their “female-heavy” family from time to time. The couple tied the knot in 2006.

“We’re definitely female-heavy! But as the girls say, ‘The dog’s a boy!’ ” said Kidman at the time, adding: “At times, [Keith] just needs to escape with his guitar. Sometimes I’ll find him in his closet playing guitar. That’s when I know we really need to give him space.”

“Oh, and he Googles cars — I’ll know when he’s stressed ’cause he’s Googling cars,” Kidman — who is also mom to two adult children with ex-husband Tom Cruise, son Connor, 25, and daughter Isabella, 28 — continued. “I couldn’t care less what car I’m driving; you can pick me up in any old thing. But Keith and Faith love cars.”

Kidman also opened up about juggling parenting duties with Urban as they balance their busy careers.

“We never leave the kids, one of us is always there,” said Kidman. “When Keith went to Nashville and I had to work late nights, I rang [my sister Antonia] and asked her to move in with the girls and she did, and brought along her kids. That’s special.”

“It’s the nature of what we’re all having to do now – you get to be commune-like; this extended family where you’re all raising each other’s kids together,” she continued. “We’ve all had to go back to basics, and this year has required it because people are pleading for help.”

The 78th Annual Golden Globes Awards are airing live on NBC from 5-8 p.m. PT/8-11 p.m. ET.

People.com shares director Aaron Sorkin’s views of Nicole as Lucille Ball and the premise of the new film Being the Ricardos.

Nicole Kidman will play Lucille Ball opposite Javier Bardem’s Desi Arnaz in Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming drama Being the Ricardos

Aaron Sorkin knows he found the right person to play the legendary Lucille Ball.

The writer and director behind the upcoming Being the Ricardos, a drama about Ball and her husband Desi Arnaz, explained why he cast Nicole Kidman as the I Love Lucy star in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight. Kidman, 53, will star opposite Javier Bardem, 51, who will play Arnaz.

The casting was questioned by some fans, who felt maybe Debra Messing, who bears a striking resemblance to Ball, would better nail the comedic tones of I Love Lucy. Others criticized casting the Spain-born Bardem as Arnaz, who was Cuban-American.

But Sorkin said the casting was all about the actual actors, and not about their famous characters.

“I think that the people thought that we’ve cast them as Lucy and Ricky Ricardo,” Sorkin told ET. “The film takes place during a production week of I Love Lucy – a Monday table read to Friday audience taping, with a whole bunch of long flashbacks which are telling the story that got us here – and because there’s a table read, there’s rehearsals and then there’s tape night, we do see moments of them being Lucy and Ricky Ricardo. We see moments from an episode of I Love Lucy.”

“But mostly they are playing Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball. And they’re going to be fantastic. These are two of the greatest actors ever,” Sorkin added.

Sorkin also gave a small tease of what the movie will actually follow.

“Lucy and Desi were madly in love with each other. Madly, madly in love with each other. They also often wanted to kill each other. There was very interesting friction in this relationship,” he said. “There’s also a big thing that a lot of people don’t know about Lucille Ball, which gets dramatized in this. We start shooting in seven weeks and we’re in prep now and the film will be out around this time next year.”

Ball and Arnaz’s daughter, Lucie Arnaz, also defended Kidman’s casting earlier this year in a video message shared on Facebook. Lucie has been an active participant in stories involving her famous parents, who died three years apart in the late ’80s.

“There seems to be a lot of discussion about Nicole Kidman. It should be Debra Messing. It should be Carole Cook, I don’t know,” Lucie said in the video.

“Here’s the deal. You should understand. We are not doing a remake of I Love Lucy. No one has to impersonate Lucy Ricardo nor do the Vitameatavegamin routine, or the chocolate factory routine or any of the silly things,” she said. “It’s the story of Lucille Ball, my actual mother, not Lucy Ricardo, and her husband, Dezi Arnaz, my dad, not Ricky Ricardo.”

“There will be humor in the film, but it is a story of the two of them and how they met and what went right with finding the show, what went wrong, their relationship, their love affair,” she added.

Variety shared that Nicole with star and produce a new series.

Academy Award and Emmy-winner Nicole Kidman will executive produce a television series based on Maria Sødahl’s European Cinemas Label-winning “Hope” under her Blossom Films banner. “Hope” is currently in the running as the Norweigan entry for the Best International Feature Film category at the 93rd Academy Awards.

The rights to the film’s adaptation were acquired by Amazon Studios. The script is being penned by Alice Bell, who will also serve as an executive producer alongside Kidman. The original “Hope” film, released in 2019, stars Andrea Bræin Hovig and Stellan Skarsgård (“Thor,” “Chernobyl,” “Mamma Mia!”). The romance and family drama was nominated for best director and best actress at the 2020 European Academy Awards. Not much is being divulged yet about “Hope” (the show), but we do know that the narrative will chronicle over the twelve days of Christmas for a couple in a tenuous marriage and six children between them.

Blossom Films, founded by Nicole Kidman and her producing partner Per Saari, have been booked and busy with a high-powered lineup across film and TV. Not only is this “Hope” adaptation in the works for Amazon Studios, but Blossom Films is currently in the pre-production phase for “The Expatriates,” a series based on Janice Y.K. Lee’s novel of the same name. Bell also serves as a writer and executive producer for “The Expatriates,” which will be directed by Lulu Wang and stars Kidman. Kidman and Saari will executive produce, too. Other Blossom Films adaptations for Amazon Studios slated for development include a film adaptation of A.S.A. Harrison’s “The Silent Wife” and a television series based on Andrew Bovell’s musical “Things I Know to be True.”

The production company’s most recent success came from executive producing (and, in Kidman’s case, starring) in “The Undoing,” which drew millions of viewers across all platforms and was a huge ratings hit for HBO.

Kidman is represented by CAA, Media Talent Group, attorney Alan Wertheimer and The Lede Company.

Netflix’s musical comedy — about a group of self-centered actors who descend upon small-town Indiana to support a teenager banned from bringing her girlfriend to the dance — required its A-list stars to step out of their comfort zones.

Step One: Teach Nicole Kidman to Move Like a Chorus Girl

Nicole Kidman is no stranger to musicals, having won a Golden Globe for her star-making performance in 2001’s Moulin Rouge! and later appearing in Rob Marshall’s 2009 adaptation of the Broadway musical Nine. Angie, Kidman’s character in The Prom, is a seasoned Broadway chorus girl, the type whose hope of catching a big break may have dimmed, but who still relishes a career hoofing in the footlights. It’s this spirit of perseverance and wonder that drives Kidman’s big solo, in which she encourages young Emma (Jo Ellen Pellman) to put some pep in her step and ultimately triumph over the bullies at school (and in the PTA) with a song titled “Zazz.”

” ‘Zazz’ is all about the style,” says the film’s choreographer, Casey Nicholaw, the Tony-award winning director of The Book of Mormon who also helmed the 2019 Broadway production of The Prom. “So it’s not giant moves, it’s smaller moves” like flicks of the wrists and hips, in the manner of Bob Fosse. While Fosse’s signature choreography has a dry quality to it, Kidman’s moves in the film are “a little bit more buoyant” than your typical Chicago chorus girl, Nicholaw says, because she’s teaching them to Emma and demonstrating for her. The number finds Kidman performing in Emma’s living room and eventually leading her in a mini kick-line down the stairs.

“We did it in pieces,” Nicholaw says of teaching choreography to Kidman, who insisted on drilling the moves again and again to get them into her body. “No one worked harder than Nicole did on trying to get all those steps,” Nicholaw says. “She was just relentless. She didn’t stop until she got it right.”

Emma eventually catches on, and the lesson lends her the confidence to carry forward. As Angie, Kidman is tasked with playing a showbiz veteran who still feels butterflies backstage. “Nicole’s energy in the movie is just fantastic,” Nicholaw says. Angie’s “been around, but she’s not beat yet.”

The Emmy winner opened up about how playing women experiencing trauma in “The Undoing” and “Destroyer” caused her to get sick and affected her personality.

Nicole Kidman has shared that her roles as women suffering through trauma on “Big Little Lies” and “The Undoing” took a toll on her after leaving the set each day.

The Oscar winner spoke on the “WTF with Marc Maron” podcast about how playing the roles of women experiencing physical and psychological damage on the two HBO hits seeped into her life outside of the filming.

“Even on ‘The Undoing’ it kind of happened where I just was like suddenly, I was in this place, there was sort of a disquietness to my personality where I was uneasy, and there was duress on who I was,” she said.

In “The Undoing,” Kidman, 53, played a therapist whose husband is accused of murder. In “Big Little Lies,” she portrayed a retired lawyer and mother who is physically and mentally abused by her husband.

“I actually got really sick, and I think this is a big thing that happens to actors,” she said. “I went down for a week because your immune system doesn’t know the difference between acting and truth when you’re doing those.”

Kidman found it difficult to shut off the role in her personal life.

“I have not learned a technique to tell my brain and my body, ‘Oh this is just acting,”’ she said. “I haven’t learned how to clean that out.

“It doesn’t really work for me. I go home, and I don’t sleep well and I’m not well if it’s that disturbing to me.”

She experienced similar effects while filming the 2018 movie “Destroyer,” in which she plays a detective who takes revenge against members of a gang of bank robbers.

“That was awful being in that place,” she said. “I stayed in that character. I didn’t want it to feel like acting. I would growl and moan. I was a very unpleasant person during that time.”

Maron asked her why she continued to take roles like those given the traumatic effects of them, and she contrasted them with her recent role in the 2020 Netflix musical comedy “The Prom.”

“But then something like Angie in ‘The Prom,’ I just go, ‘Great I get to dance and I get to love everybody, and I get to go ‘Come here, let me hug you, it’s all gonna be all right,”’ she said.

She also shared her fears about receiving phone calls at night after she found out about the death of the legendary Stanley Kubrick, who directed her and ex-husband Tom Cruise in the 1999 movie “Eyes Wide Shut.”

“I just started screaming,” she said. “I have a huge fear of phone calls in the night now because I’ve received a number of them with that sort of news, my father included. I have trauma attached to them.”

Deadline shares this possible casting news of Nicole in the talks to play Lucille Ball.

EXCLUSIVE: Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem are in negotiations to play Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz in Amazon and Aaron Sorkin’s Being the Ricardos, the film about the relationship between the I Love Lucy stars. Having penned the screenplay, Academy Award winner Sorkin also will direct the film from Amazon Studios and Escape Artists.

The film is set during one production week of I Love Lucy — Monday table read through Friday audience filmin g— when Lucy and Desi face a crisis that could end their careers and another that could end their marriage.

Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch will produce. Executive producers are Jenna Block, David Bloomfield of Escape Artists, Stuart Besser, Lucie Arnaz, Desi Arnaz, Jr. and Lauren Lohman.

Sorkin originally was going to pen the script only, when Cate Blanchett was circling, but after enjoying himself on the drama The Trial of the Chicago 7, he decided to attach himself as a director as well over the summer. After The Trial of the Chicago 7 bowed on Netflix in October, Being the Ricardos began to gain momentum with Kidman and Bardem quickly interest in the couple behind TV’s first family. Deals still need to close for both actors, but even if and when they do, when production will start is still up in the air as the Covid-19 Pandemic continues to push productions throughout the country.

After years as one of Hollywood’s most prolific screenwriters with such classics as A Few Good Men, Moneyball and his Oscar-winning The Social Network, Sorkin has found himself more and more behind the camera as well. His directing debut was the drama Molly’s Game starring Jessica Chastain and Idris Elba, and he followed that up with The Chicago 7.

Kidman has had busy winter, starting with her critically acclaimed turn in the hit HBO limited series The Undoing. On the film side, she was part of the all-star ensemble in Ryan Murphy’s The Prom. In 2021, she has the Hulu series Nine Perfect Strangers, and she recently wrapped production on Robert Eggers’ Vikings pic The Northman.

Bardem most recently was seen in The Roads Not Taken and next can be seen in Legendary’s Dune. He also is set to play King Triton in Disney’s live-action The Little Mermaid.
