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!!


Sienna Miller is Too Thin For Russell Crowe


Sienna Miller was supposed to co-star in the upcoming movie Nottingham but her co-star Russell Crowe felt she was too slender to play his love interest.

I guess it’s easier to get a co-star with some meat on her then it is to lose weight. 

Sienna and Russell were due to star in Nottingham, which tells the story of English outlaw Robin Hood.

Crowe is to star as the villainous Sheriff of Nottingham, while Miller was due to play Maid Marian.

Sienna has since been axed from the project – because beefy actor Crowe allegedly felt her frame was too thin to play his on-screen lover.

I have a couple of things to say about this one – 1.  I should be so lucky to be too thin for anything and 2) Maybe Russell Crowe should go back to his hotness of yesteryear!!  Is it me or did he gain A LOT of weight??
