Nicole Kidman

In Style July 2017
I have always been a fan of Nicole Kidman. She has a warmth shows through in her characters and intelligence in ones that aren't warm at all. I have not been tempted to watch "Big Little Lies." Too much ensemble for me. And the idea of it as it has been presented is not appealing to me. But give me "Cold Mountain" every autumn/winter, which is a beguilingly romantic movie that shows her character to be what I would like to imagine myself to be ... delicate and strong. Pretty, but unafraid of the things in life that aren't quite so. I am also a big fan of "To Die For." Her broad sense of humor and dogged determination comes across beautifully through the character that she plays.

Early on in the courtship of my sister with her now husband found us at the movies. The story is not that, except it was then that my brother-in-law told me that I reminded him of Nicole Kidman. Naturally, I was flattered; even though, I knew that the only thing that I may have had in common with Kidman is a head of strawberry blond hair. Until now, when ... in this profile of her in In Style magazine, she talked about her relationships: "I've always chosen to have really deep, intense romantic relationships. I don't flit about. I don't dabble. That's who I am, and my mother's always said it: "you're just a child who attaches." Maybe, he saw that this was true of me and so likened me to her. I definitely 'attach,' Although she seems to me to disconnect better than I, but being her, I imagine, she has more opportunity to unlatch and move on.
