Pregnant Nicole Kidman to Pose Nude
I’m surprised to hear Nicole Kidman is joining the likes of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, and plans to be posing for nude photographs later in her pregnancy. Belly photos can be absolutely beautiful, especially if you have a great photographer like glossy magazine darling Patrick Demarchelier, whom Nicole has apparently commissioned to take the shots. But she seems so quiet and retiring, and while it’s one thing to have photos taken for yourself, it’s quite another to have them published for all the world to see.
Perhaps her good taste and judgement meter is not operating properly? She had the sense to ditch batty old “cure post-partum depression with vitamins” Tom Cruise, but then she hooks up with oily chest-hair baring Keith Urban. And she sometimes dresses in Bacofoil. And fishscales. So perhaps we shouldn’t be all that surprised.
OK, enough with the digs. She looks very happy, and glowing, and I wish her and Keith all the best. Nicole is also a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN’s Development Fund for Women, and has been speaking out against violence towards women, which she calls “most widespread human rights violation of our time.” Only 98 countries out of the 200-ish in the world have any laws against domestic violence. And even in countries like the USA existing laws can be hard to enforce, and certainly don’t deter men from acts of violence against their partners. So good for you Nicole, I hope you’ll be able to make a difference.
And back to the pictures….I’m a trashy celebrity magazine junkie. Will I be reading whichever magazine buys the photos? Yup. And I’m steeling myself against wailing at the checkout at how unfair life is for the amount of stretchmarks she hasn’t got. Or perhaps she will have stretchmarks. Imagine, celebrities showing they are mere mortals just like us? Now that would be worth seeing!
