I love that the two are still friends! And I think Zoe & Nicole are fabulous on Big Little Lies! Thank you to People for the article.

When Lenny Kravitz turns on the hit series Big Little Lies, both his daughter and his ex-fiancée are on the screen.

The musician, 54, considers it “beautiful” that Zoë Kravitz, 30, and Nicole Kidman, 51, had their paths cross again on the show.

“I thought it was very interesting that they ended up on the same show,” Lenny told a caller on Watch What Happens Live. “And Zoë hadn’t seen Nicole since she was younger, so it was beautiful that they got to know each other as adults and make this great show together.”

Fans dishing for more drama are not going to find it. “And that’s about it,” Lenny said conclusively.

As for his long-ago relationship with Kidman, Lenny expressed no hard feelings on WWHL.

“Some things just don’t work, but the wonderful thing is that we’re all friends,” he said. Kidman wed Keith Urban in 2006.

In February 2017, Kidman told’s magazine The EDIT that Kravitz, her boyfriend in 2003 after her 2001 divorce from Tom Cruise, had once popped the question to her.

“Well, I knew Zoë because I was engaged to her father. It’s all in the family!” Kidman said. “I love Lenny; he’s a great guy.”

In June 2017, Zoë, who is engaged to Karl Glusman, reacted to Kidman’s admission. “I think she forgot that no one knew that,” Zoë told The EDIT.

“I hadn’t seen her in a long time before Big Little Lies, but there was a point where we were all kind of living together,” Zoë recalled. “I was about 13, and she would take me to see movies; she was so nice to me.”

“It just wasn’t right,” Kidman said to Vanity Fair in 2007 of her engagement to a man whose identity she did not reveal at the time. “I wasn’t ready. We weren’t ready.”

Variety has released more from the Actors on Actors interview with Amy & Nicole. I love this part because it shows these two talented women as mothers … they talk about keeping their children away from most of their work.

Amy Adams and Nicole Kidman’s children are thrilled when their mothers pick projects that they’re actually allowed to watch, the two actresses said during their Variety Actors on Actors conversation.

“My daughter said, ‘can you please do a movie that I can see?’” Adams told Kidman while discussing their hesitancy to let their children watch them in roles with mature themes. “She’s like, ‘can I watch “Sharp Objects?”‘ and I’m like, ‘Oh god, no, never.’”

However, Adams knows that the day will come when she can no longer stop them.

“They’re going to [watch] though, and then it’ll be wonderful conversations, I think,” she said.

“They’ll unravel us,” Kidman said. “I’m actually scared how to explain some of the choices. It’s incredibly exposing and vulnerable.”

That made Adams recall a day during filming for “The Woman in the Window” when she brought her daughter, Aviana, on set.

“I forgot she was there, and I’m not a big swearer, except if I’m messing up,” Adams said. “She’s never heard me say the F-word until that day, and there must have been 15.”

Kidman said her kids have heard her swear in character, but never in real life. “I don’t swear,” she said. “I grew up with a father that never — I never heard him cuss ever.”

Kidman agreed that censoring her performances from her young children is often necessary — for that reason, she’s especially happy to be able to share her experience playing Queen Atlanna for the upcoming DC film “Aquaman.”

“I loved it because my daughters were so interested, and they’re not usually that interested,” Kidman said.

Recently Nicole and Amy sat down together and chatted as part of Variety’s Actors on Actors Series.

Few stars are more willing to take risks than Amy Adams. Her turn as Second Lady Lynne Cheney in “Vice” is only the latest in a series of on-screen transformations, following her startling work in the HBO limited series “Sharp Objects.” Adams’ roles — from a heartbroken linguist in “Arrival” to a social climber in “American Hustle” to Lois Lane in the DC Universe — share little but Adams’ fierce tenacity and perpetual intelligence.

Meanwhile, Nicole Kidman’s characters seem at times to share nothing at all. Her 2018 has been as much of a tightrope walk as Adams’, with two juicy but divergent roles — as an achingly conflicted mother of a gay son in “Boy Erased” and as a hardened cop in “Destroyer.” On top of it all, she plays an undersea monarch in “Aquaman,” a role whose special-effects surroundings promise not to diminish Kidman’s star power.

Nicole Kidman First of all, we have to acknowledge that we’ve both worked with Jean-Marc Vallée on limited series.

Amy Adams You had him first. When I started working with him, you guys were releasing “Big Little Lies,” and I read about the intensity of the work. What was that like for you?

Kidman It was incredibly intense, but it was also very freeing. It was almost slice-of-life, where he’s in there with the camera, because he operates the camera sometimes. I was really exposed, but that was good. What about you?

Adams It was challenging, because it does create this voyeuristic energy. I had so much to do that the way he shot became an endurance challenge.

Kidman You’re amazing in it. And I want to play sisters, so I’m putting that out there for anybody.

Adams I always said that I wanted to be like Nicole Kidman, but I understood that I was like corduroy to her silk.

Kidman No!

Adams It’s so true. I’m so corduroy and I hate it, but it’s true. You have to know yourself.

Kidman Well, I’m not silk. It’s like to be a little bit of lace, a little bit of leather. Can I be that?

Adams Yeah, you can be that.

Deadline talked with Nicole on her new film Destroyer.

Today Nicole Kidman received her 14th Golden Globe nomination, and rightfully so, for her portrayal of a haggard, undercover LAPD detective who won’t let the past settle until she’s has had justice.

At a time when you might think that such movies as Chinatown, L.A. Confidential and Training Day have put the LA crime noir film out of business, director Karyn Kusama turns the genre upside down, not so much with a relapsed memory-non-linear tale, but with a portrayal by Kidman in which she completely disappears onscreen (much in the same way as she did as Virginia Woolf in The Hours) into Erin Bell, a age-spot ridden, dry-skinned, skinny cop who has seen far too much. It’s a noir protagonist up there with such greats as J.J. Gittes and even Taxi Driver‘s Travis Bickle.

When Kidman first read the script, “I cried because of its mother-daughter relationship, and just how she carried her daughter on her back. It was one of those images that got under my skin and I didn’t expect that in this type of genre film; which was so character-driven and deeply emotional, not in a sentimental way.”

“So many of these films are written for men, and as much as she’s dangerous, at times you can’t understand her. You feel frustrated and angry. She’s deeply female, and so many of her motivations are because of her child and how she feels as a parent; not being present, and having done things to her child that she feels so deeply ashamed of, that she’s trying to atone for it; that’s what makes her so female — that very complicated mother-daughter relationship.”

Detailing her transformation into Bell, Kidman told Deadline, “I decided to become her and to absorb her which was the same (process) as with Celeste in Big Little Lies and Virginia Woolf in The Hours. I didn’t know how much it was going to take; I don’t know if I’d jump in willingly if I knew how much it would take.” Learning how to handle guns and make it look like second nature was, of course, a top priority for the actress when portraying an undercover LAPD detective.

The second season of HBO’s Big Little Lies, the first of which Kidman won a Limited TV series Best Actress Golden Globe earlier this year for, finished shooting in August. Kidman and fellow star/ EP Reese Witherspoon are “in the middle” of post per the actress, putting their “heart and soul into it” with “incredible storylines.”

Destroyer, which was fully financed by 30WEST for under $10M and acquired by Annapurna out of Cannes, opens on Dec. 25.

Some of the biggest names in Australian screen have used the red carpet of the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) awards to send subtle messages to politicians and the wider industry, but Nicole Kidman had a message for moviegoers.

The Australian actor took home the AACTA for her supporting role in Boy Erased, moments after urging audiences to look past the blockbusters.

Boy Erased, which was nominated for best film, is based on the true story of a teenager put through conversion therapy in the United States not that many years ago.

It was directed by Joel Edgerton, who appears beside Kidman and Russell Crowe in the film.

“These films are hard right now. They’re hard to get audiences for. They’re hard to get made,” Kidman said.

“You know, I’m also in Aquaman. That is not hard to get made. It’s a whole different thing and it’s nice to be fun.

“But this is where you go ‘please go and see these movies’ because otherwise we won’t have the chance to make them anymore.”

The film was made in the US, but is nominated in the Australian AACTA awards because its director, Edgerton, is a local.

This year was the first time the Australian awards recognised an American film with substantial local input.

“I don’t know about bending the rules, I’m just grateful the film is being seen,” Kidman said.

A year after revelations about Harvey Weinstein and in the shadows of allegations of sexual harassment by Australian star Geoffrey Rush, several stars insisted times were changing for women in the industry.

On the red carpet, the sentiment on female participation was one of cautious optimism despite the categories for best director, screenplay, cinematographer, editor, sound and original score featuring only male nominees.

Kidman said women in the industry were “trying to carve paths that should have been carved years ago”.

“We’re all really uniting as women and as a culture and there are so many supportive men and we’re trying to make massive changes for the next generation as well.”

Janet King star Marta Dusseldorp said representation was “the only thing anyone is talking about right now”.

Packed to the Rafters star Erik Thomson said change was happening.

“I sense in any writers room, in any situation I’ve been in in the last year or so, it’s always at the forefront of the discussions we have,” he said.

As expected, many stars wore blue ribbons to protest against Australia’s treatment of asylum seekers and to send a message to politicians.

“People don’t like it when you make noise. But you’re supposed to. You’re supposed to make noise,” Julia Zemiro said.

Australian actor Simon Baker was nominated for his directorial debut for the movie Breath.

He wore a blue ribbon on the red carpet, saying it was about both public awareness and pushing for political change.

“I guess in a lot of ways it’s to galvanise the politicians in this country to make a conscience decision as opposed to a political decision,” he said.

Indigenous man and Sweet Country director Warwick Thornton also wore a blue ribbon and had a powerful perspective on the debate.

“We are Australians, we are beautiful humans and we look after each other. And we look after other people,” he said.

“Literally every family has come here on a boat. You might have been born here, but your family came here once on a boat, maybe an aeroplane, maybe they walked across a land bridge in an ice age.

“We make sure we look after people who need help. How ridiculous is it in 2018 that we’re having this conversation?”
