Nicole Kidman & Clive Owen: ‘An Affair To Remember’ for W Magazine [PHOTOS]
Two of Hollywood’s finest stars, Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen took time away from HBO’s “Hemingway & Gellhorn” to star in a sneaky and seductive photoshoot for W Magazine. We’ve got your highlights of their interview, including how they started and their thoughts on starring nude for the big screen.
Owen starred in the photo spread sporting a Giorgio Armani suit, Church’s shoes, and a Jaeger-LeCoultre watch. Kidman stunned in dresses by Louis Vuitton, Prada and Carolina Herrera. She posed elegantly in her Dior coat and cateye Tom Ford sunglasses with jewels by Van Ceef & Arpels and Tiffany & Company to match her Oscar de la Renta silk gown.
“I played the Artful Dodger in Oliver! when I was about 13. It was the musical version. I didn’t sing that well, but I gave it a go. I was just given the part, thrown into it, and I came out and said, ‘I have to do this. I’ve got to be an actor.’ I was unwavering from that moment on.”
Clive Owen on his preference between sex scenes and murder scenes:
“It’s much harder to do a death scene. You’ve got to do it convincingly, and it’s a huge thing to die [laughs]. Sex scenes are only hard if there’s no narrative conveyed through the sex scene.”
Nicole Kidman on her early acting career:
“I auditioned for the role of an angel in the Nativity play at school. I didn’t get it. I auditioned for Mary; didn’t get it. So I made up the character of the sheep who sat next to Baby Jesus. I wore a little calico sort of head thing that my mom made. I bleated through the whole thing and got my first laugh. And that was it: I was hooked.”
Nicole Kidman on starring nude:
“I don’t mind being naked. Maybe as I get older, and now after having had a baby, it might be different, but I enjoy not letting my issues get in the way of a performance.”
