Nicole Kidman says Meryl Streep told her to play former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson in the upcoming drama Bombshell
When deciding whether or not to play former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson in the upcoming film Bombshell, Nicole Kidman turned to good pal Meryl Streep for advice.
“I was shooting Big Little Lies [season 2] when I got the script,” says Kidman, 52. “I was sitting on the set with Meryl Streep and I said to Meryl, ‘should I play Gretchen Carlson?’ She said, ‘absolutely.’”
The movie — which also stars Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly,and Margot Robbie as a Fox News worker — tells the story of the women who claim they were sexually harassed by former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, played by John Lithgow. Kelly and Carlson, both former employees of the network, claimed sexual harassment from Ailes during their careers.
After Streep’s approval, Kidman began doing more research on the role.
“I consider myself well rounded, up-to-date and aware of particularly these issues, but I didn’t know a lot about Gretchen,” Kidman said during a Q&A with Theron and Robbie following a screening of the film Sunday night in Los Angeles. “I would hope that through the course of telling this story people feel that they can speak up and be heard.”
Streep and Kidman starred together in the second season of HBO’s Big Little Lies and are set to reunite for Ryan Murphy’s Netflix musical adaptation of Broadway’s The Prom.
Bombshell hits theaters December 20.
This past week Nicole, Charlize, & Margot attended a special screening held for their new film Bombshell in West Hollywood.
Nicole is featured in the November issue of Elle magazine as one of their Women in Hollywood.
When Big Little Lies debuted in 2017, it felt revolutionary: five power moms from Monterey who save their friend, Nicole Kidman’s Celeste Wright, from a violent marriage. The show, based on the novel by Liane Moriarty, unknowingly prepared America for what was to come. Less than a month after the 2017 Emmy Awards, in which the HBO series carried home eight golden statues, the New York Times and the New Yorker published their exposés on Harvey Weinstein. A few months later, the show’s five leads (Kidman, Laura Dern, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, and Zoë Kravitz) were among the earliest supporters of the anti-harassment initiative Time’s Up. Two years out, we practically expect to see women linked hand in hand—just as the five actresses were as they marched onto the Emmys stage—as a balm to a culture of casting couches and White House diatribes. Big Little Lies created that visual road map.
“Everyone says, ‘Are you going to do a season three?’” Kidman says. “We’re like, ‘Just give us a sec.’” (She’s busy: After our interview, she’ll be promoting the September release of The Goldfinch, adapted from Donna Tartt’s novel, in which she dons the country-club cardigans of Mrs. Barbour.) Kidman hastens to add, “We’d love to [do another season] because we love being together, and it’s lovely spending time with your friends, and with such good material,” she says. “It’s part of the reason I wanted to do Bombshell, to support Charlize.”
In Bombshell—next month’s newsroom drama from Trumbo director Jay Roach and coproducer Charlize Theron—Kidman returns to the female-ensemble format to chronicle Roger Ailes’s sexual harassment of female staffers at Fox News. The movie follows Gretchen Carlson (Kidman), Megyn Kelly (Theron), and the fictional composite character Kayla Pospisil (Margot Robbie) in the year leading up to Ailes’s July 2016 resignation. “The story it’s trying to tell is broader than Fox News,” she says. “It’s much more about sexual harassment and the women.” When Bombshell’s 87-second video teaser dropped in August, it racked up over 6.3 million YouTube views in just four days.
