Women are up-ending the status quo in Hollywood, both behind and in front of the camera. British Vogue speaks to Nicole Kidman, Laura Harrier, Rosamund Pike, Michelle Yeoh, Gemma Chan and Felicity Jones, who all star in the February 2019 issue, about what it means to be a woman in film now.

British Vogue highlights Nicole as one of their Women Up-Ending the Status Quo!

This awards season, Vogue shines a light on the actors bringing important, female-centric stories to life and proving the tide is finally turning in Hollywood.

After Frances McDormand had collected her Best Actress Oscar for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri at last year’s Academy Awards, and thanked those she needed to, she asked every female nominee in every category to stand up.

“Look around, ladies and gentlemen,” she implored the audience in that deliciously droll way of hers. “Because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed. Don’t talk to us about it at the parties tonight. Invite us into your office in a couple days, or you can come to ours, whatever suits you best, and we’ll tell you all about them.”

McDormand’s speech came at the end of an awards season typified not by the usual glittering dresses and gushing platitudes, but by an all-black dress code and politically charged words. In the aftermath of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, which had broken five months prior, women across the film industry came together in a show of solidarity: they spoke up for each other in the press, listened to one another at Time’s Up meetings and wore the same uniform on the red carpet. The awards ceremonies of 2018 were a line in the sand.

This year, it might be back to business as usual on the wardrobe front, but McDormand’s message still stands. In the February issue, British Vogue turns the lens on the actors bringing important stories to life: whether it is Rosamund Pike immortalising the fearless war correspondent Marie Colvin, Felicity Jones as the trailblazing Ruth Bader Ginsburg or first-time actress Yalitza Aparicio telling the real-life story of Academy Award-winner Alfonso Cuarón’s childhood nanny. Yes, the domestic roles are still there, but they are richly written and complex – not wordless bystanders to the action. Take Carey Mulligan’s career-defining performance as a wife and mother in Wildlife, or Nicole Kidman’s Oscar-worthy turn as a mother struggling with her son’s sexuality in Boy Erased.

Read exclusive excerpts from the Hollywood portfolio below, and see the full spotlight on the 2019 success stories in the February issue of British Vogue, which is available to buy now.

Nicole Kidman
Destroyer and Boy Erased

“It’s the type of role I’ve never been offered before and, perhaps on paper, not the type of role people would think I’m suited to,” says Nicole Kidman of her extraordinary turn as Erin Bell in Destroyer: a gaunt, savagely violent, emotionally wounded detective who’s thrown back into her past when an old case reopens. “It definitely helps to transform into the role,” she says of her altered appearance. Meanwhile, her portrayal of Nancy Eamons in Boy Erased is garnering rave reviews. As a mother trying to reconcile her religious beliefs with having a gay son, Kidman, 51, masterfully brings the complexity of life to bear in her work. “You want only the best for your child,” she tells Vogue. “But you don’t always get it right.”

Best Performances: Featuring Nicole Kidman, Claire Foy, Rami Malek, and 29 of Hollywood’s Biggest Stars

At the movies, 2018 was truly the year of the woman. In the past, that claim has been made optimistically, but this time around weighty female-centric films abounded. Actresses have, thankfully, moved beyond the sexy girlfriend or loyal helpmate clichés. Standout roles included brilliant, conniving ladies in waiting in The Favourite; a housekeeper at the heart of a fractured family in Roma; the hidden power broker behind the presidency of the United States in Vice; and an avenging cop in Destroyer. Along with these much-needed female points of view, there was also more racial diversity—and irrefutable proof that audiences are clamoring for new kinds of stories, featuring communities that have been previously ignored. The terrific superhero film Black Panther made $1.35 billion worldwide; Crazy Rich Asians, $238 million. The crowd-pleasing Green Book, which tells the true story of an unlikely interracial friendship in the 1960s, and If Beale Street Could Talk, based on James Baldwin’s classic novel set in Harlem in the early ’70s, were both period pieces that reminded audiences how things have—or haven’t—changed when it comes to race relations in America. Similarly, Boy Erased, about gay-conversion therapy, shined a light on a horrible practice that, disturbingly, is still around today. This portfolio portrays the leading Hollywood stars of 2018 in an eccentric universe created by the photographer Tim Walker. In fantastical scenarios featuring mysterious egg people and a giant bouncy castle, established actresses including Nicole Kidman, ­Saoirse Ronan, Amy Adams, and Margot Robbie rule alongside up-and-comers like KiKi Layne, Elsie Fisher, Yalitza Aparicio, and ­Elizabeth Debicki. Actors such as Michael B. Jordan, Timothée Chalamet, ­Willem Dafoe, and Mahershala Ali join in on the festivities, helping us celebrate the fact that there are finally big changes happening on the big screen. And there is no going back.

in Boy Erased and Destroyer

“In Destroyer, I play a cop who’s been through a lot—she’s very American, very angry, distressed, and disturbed. I wasn’t the first choice for that role—it went to somebody else and she didn’t want to do it. I read the script and put my hand up and said, ‘What about me?’ ”

Did the wardrobe contribute to the character?
We took so long to find the leather jacket that I wear in pretty much every frame of the film. I became so obsessed with that jacket, I would wear it at home. I put it on first thing in the morning. My kids visited the set and were shocked at the way I looked. You know, I’ve been working as an actor since I was 14 years old. It’s a choice, but it’s also a calling. Sometimes, I kind of try to move away, but it always pulls me back.

The Wrap shares a possible Big Little Lies season 2 premiere date.

Now that HBO has revealed “Game of Thrones” will be returning for its eighth and final season in April — though the official premiere date is still TBD — it’s high time the premium cabler tells “Big Little Lies” fans when they’ll get Season 2 of their fave series. Except maybe “BLL” star Nicole Kidman already beat them to the punch.

Kidman — who plays Celeste on HBO’s adaptation of the Liane Moriarty novel — made a quick appearance alongside her husband on CNN’s “New Year’s Eve Live with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen” Dec. 31, and dropped what she believes to be the premiere month for the sophomore installment of “Big Little Lies.”

“June, I think. We’re looking at June,” Kidman said when Cohen asked her when we can expect the second season to premiere. “We’re still in the midst of editing it, but, um, thanks for asking ’cause we’re glad that people are excited about it.”

HBO declined TheWrap’s request for comment on a June premiere date for Season 2.

Kidman added: “The reason we did [a second season] is because audiences were like, ‘You have to do a second season!’”

The actress is referencing how the show was originally intended as a limited series, as it wrapped up its initial seven-episode run in April 2017 pretty much where Moriarty’s novel left off. But viewers loved the show so much that HBO decided to renew it for another year.

Fingers crossed!

Collider speaks with director Karyn Kusama about Nicole’s role in Destroyer.

With Destroyer now playing in limited release, I recently sat down with director Karyn Kusama’s to talk about making the film. During the wide-ranging interview, she talked about why she didn’t want to use soundstages, Nicole Kidman’s amazing performance, the challenges of filming the bank heist in camera and on a very limited schedule, what she learned from early screenings, what her three-hour version of the film would have been like, how she works with screenwriters Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, and more. In addition, she talked about the resurgence of Jennifer’s Body and why she loved working on Halt and Catch Fire.

If you haven’t seen the trailers for Destroyer, the neo-noir crime thriller is led by an incredible Nicole Kidman performance (one of the best of the year), which sees her playing a LAPD detective Erin Bell who is haunted by her undercover past. When her old gang leader resurfaces, we follow Bell as she tries to figure out where he is. As she pursues him, we see flashbacks that slowly reveal how her undercover operation years ago went so wrong. Scripted by The Invitation writers Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, the film also stars Sebastian Stan, Toby Kebbell, Bradley Whitford, Tatiana Maslany, Jade Pettyjohn, and Scoot McNairy.

Check out what Karyn Kusama had to say in the player below the fold.
