Nicole Kidman As Grace Kelly: A Good Choice?

Categories: Nicole Kidman

As you may have heard, Nicole Kidman is negotiating to play Princess Grace Kelly in the movie Grace of Monaco.

The film, directed by the guy who did La Vie en Rose, will be set in 1962, during a period when the movie-star-turned-princess tried to save Monaco from a potential catastrophe.

After Michelle Williams scored as Marilyn Monroe (not to mention Meryl as the Iron Lady), lots of icons' legacies will surely be exhumed for big stars to act them out and go for nominations.

Nicole (who's 44) certainly has the icy allure of Princess Grace (who was 32 in 1962), not to mention the composure and the blond hair.

But were they right in dialing N for Nicole or would Gwyneth have been a better Country Girl?

Great choice. I will definitely go see this.

This will just be another of those films that appear on "What were they thinking?" lists.

With all the computer enhancements they'll need to make her look like Kelly the movie will turn out looking like Avatar.

I know. She's one of those indestructible actors. Even Bewitched, Stepford Wives, and Australia could't kill her.

Her movies never seem to do very well, so I'm surprised she gets any parts.

This might sound wrong but Nicole is actually a good actress and is a much better choice than someone like January Jones.

Good lord, what next, Frieda Pinto as Indira Gandhi?

Maybe Nicole can play the transsexual beauty pageant lady.

 Nicole's unnecessary face work has left her incapable of playing anyone.
