Australia Gives ‘Stamp’ of Approval to Nicole, Cate, Russell and Geoffrey


Australia is honoring their Oscar-winning Australian actors, Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Russell Crowe and Geoffrey Rush, by immortalising them on postage stamps. Wow. That is the ultimate honor. I know you can have your face put on a stamp on your own, but to have your country distribute to everyone is unbelievable.

The four actors/actresses were named legends of the year by the post office.

The special edition Australian stamps will make for essential movie memorabilia and can be bought online. Each of the film stars gets two stamps – showing them both in and out of character.
Nicole is pictured in a scene from Moulin Rouge, Russell’s stamp shows him in The Gladiator, Geoffrey’s is taken from Shine and Cate’s is from Elizabeth: The Golden Age.

The four Australian Academy Award winners have each received a 24-carat gold replica of the stamps and all were thrilled to be selected.
Nicole was excited that her children would one day be able to ‘lick a stamp, put it on an envelope and say

“that’s my mum.”‘

Congratulations to the four honorees!!

2008 Sexiest Man Alive – Hugh Jackman !!

People Magazine is yet again unveiling one of their most famous issues of the year.

The 2008 SEXIEST MAN ALIVE is none other than Hugh Jackman!!

Hug Jackman - 2008 Sexiest Man Alive

Hug Jackman - 2008 Sexiest Man Alive

People Magazine spoke with the Today show and stated that they chose Hugh Jackman for several reasons – (besides him being totally hot of course) – he is a family man and as described by Nicole Kidman,

Hugh Jackman is tough and romantic at the same time

People Magazine has called him a triple threat: a star who can sing, dance and wield a weapon.   Jackman’s latest movie the epic Australia left people stammering,

“Oh … my … God,”

according to costar Nicole Kidman.

 Jackman’s wife of 12 years, Deborra-Lee Furness, calls his perfect form

“the Body of Doom – but I like what’s inside”:

What’s inside – a romantic who sings ballads at home and makes pancakes for kids Oscar, 8, and Ava, 3.  Gotta love it!!  Not only hot but a true romantic with talent.

Other men included in the Sexiest Man Alive Issue is of course George Clooney (2 time winner), Brad Pitt (2 time winner) and Daniel Craig, Zac Efron, Robert Buckley (one of my favorites).  Check out all of the Sexiest Men Alive at People.com

An innovative marketing approach to the Sexiest Man Alive is the scratch and sniff photos.  People asked some stars for their favorite cologne.  Michael Phelps likes YSL – scratch and you will sniff a whiff of YSL cologne.  Chase Crawford is also a scratch and sniff.

Congratulations Hugh!!

Hugh Jackman Tells All About Love Scenes with Nicole Kidman


Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman star together in their new film, Australia”, scheduled to be released November 26, 2008.

When it was time to film their love scenes – spouses Keith Urban and Deborra-Lee Furness were no where to be found – this was done intentionally.

Can you blame them??  I can’t imagine having to watch my husband with another woman – yet alone – Nicole Kidman of all people.   

Jackman spoke to People Magazine,

Filming love scenes with Kidman “couldn’t have been better or easier,” We spoke of “setting boundaries.”

When asked if Hugh Jackman wore anything for the steamy scenes, Hugh responded by saying,

I won’t tell all the nitty gritty. “But [director Baz Luhrmann] treats love scenes like choreography. The camera is like a dancer. If you watch any of his movies, visually, the love scenes are like poetry.”

I wonder what those boundaries were?  I am sure he was loving this poetry – how could he not!!

2008 CMA Awards – What a Night!!

Glamour Magazine held their 2008 Woman of the Year Awards show last night in New York. There were a whole host of celebrities in attendance including, Natalie Portman, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Kate Bosworth, Taylor Swift and Fergie. WOW! What an amazing night that must have been.

Glamour said the women were all chosen because they have “made unprecedented contributions to the worlds of entertainment, business, sports, fashion, science and politics”.

Nicole Kidman, who won an award for her role as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations, gave quite the acceptance speech dedicated to her husband Keith Urban. Glamour Magazine gave a glimpse of the speech.

“Three years ago I had a wonderful career. I was getting movie offers. I had an Oscar. I had beautiful children. But there was something missing; I wasn’t loved. A man came along and said, ‘Let me take you to Tennessee.’ There he told me, ‘You deserve to be loved. Let me love you.’ And I did. So thank you, Keith,”

Another Wow.

Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz and Fergie All In One Musical!!

This is one movie that I cannot wait to see.  US Magazine, has reported The movie, “Nine” currently shooting in Italy and London isn’t scheduled to come out until December 2009 – but I already know I will be there on opening night to see the film.

With an all star cast like this it is a must see. Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Fergie, Sophie Loren and Daniel Day Lewis in one movie.  It is sure to be a huge hit. 

Daniel Day Lewis headlines the musical as world famous film director Guido Contini, who struggles to prepare his latest picture, while balancing the numerous women in his life – his wife, his mistress, his movie star muse, his costume designer, a fashion journalist, a whore from his childhood and his mother.   Lucky Daniel – this is a huge task for anyone.  All those woman in one man’s life.  Good Luck!!
