NICOLE KIDMAN REVEALS REBUILDING A LIFE & FRESH STARTS AFTER A FAMOUS BREAK UP WITH TOM

She was a relatively unknown talent who married a Hollywood heartthrob. For ten years they were a staple power couple who drove Hollywood tabloids and the box office’s credibility.

What happens when you leave your star maker, spouse and best Hollywood friend?

Nicole Kidman‘s Sydney to Hollywood story is the stuff that Hollywood movies will be made of. Nicole finally opens up about the Tom Cruise break up.

MSN News reports: Nicole Kidman has spoken candidly about battling depression in the wake of her divorce from Tom Cruise in 2001 via Who Magazine.

Kidman, 45, says she did struggle after the breakdown of her 10-year marriage to the Hollywood star.

“I got married really fast and really young,” Nicole revealed. But I don’t regret that because it got me [adopted children] Bella and Connor and I did have a fantastic marriage for a long period.

“Then when it didn’t work out I had to really dig deep and find my way through depression. I have no regrets about all of it. It was all part of growing up.”

Nicole elaborated on her personal turmoil following the highly public split. “There were times following [the divorce] when I thought, ‘Wow, this is the loneliest, loneliest existence,’” she told Who.

HOLLYWOOD CASTING CALL BUZZ, CK’s NEW FRAGRANCE ENCOUNTER, LARA STONE & ALEXANDER SKARSGARD FOR LEAD IN “FIFTY SHADES OF GREY?”

I’ve never read the book, Fifty Shades of Grey. Hollywood is making the film into a movie. Casting is underway. The usual heartthrob names have come up for the lead role of Christian Grey. Should it be Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp or someone else?, Hollywood is asking. PolicyMic also recommends Ryan Gosling. Let’s face it, the leading lad sort of has to resemble a younger version of Mitt Romney or Mitt’s running mate. Why Gosling, stands a good chance perhaps. Just saying.

Then there’s the issue of greed and inequality rates escalating so high over the past 7-10 years amongst the wealthy, aided by bankers and those who wore ties, that you have to ask, is it really a good time to make this film? Tie jade repellent factor is something the PR of the film will need to get audiences over, for younger audiences to find the movie relevant – the future of Hollywood films.

For casting directors who may read the blog, Tennessee folks are the top rating American stars on the blog over the last 9 days. Why? Who knows, yet the world seems to want to see more of Tennessee lately on a trends tracking level.

Back to Hollywood casting: True Blood HBO actor, Alexander Skarsgard‘s new TVC where he co-stars with model Lara Stone has some pundits hoping Skarsgard will be approached to star in the lead. Watch the TVC and make up your own mind. Skarsgard for Hollywood’s silver screen invention of Christian Grey?

Or should the role go to a newcomer, no one has ever heard of? That would be rad. Like a talent search reality TV series, then TV audiences could vote on their lead of choice. In the process, new actors would be discovered too by the audience votes. With a decent script, their movies would always be hits, because the people voted them onto the screen before the actors even started in Hollywood.

Maybe that’s too rad thinking and too creative an approach for Hollywood?, yet not a silly idea to shake Hollywood up a tad. It would be cool to see a deserving every day guy, become a big Hollywood star. Like a farmer who acts in their local theater company once a year, or a single parent chippie, building homes in Utah for cheeky Swiss-Mormons’ charities.  That kind of vibe could work too. An unknown from Colorado could also be a good mix for America’s future plans.

Just create a new heartthrob, cast them opposite Hollywood’s leading lights names, then hello, big box office smash hit would ensue for E L James, spin-off film franchise. It worked for The Twilight saga films, in Summit Entertainment, a fledging film company. Why not try the same casting approach for this film franchise and older actors?

In any event, Calvin Klein’s fragrance marketing team has done a swell job at seguing into author E.L James’ audience following, with the Skarsgard TVC Fifty Shades referencing buzzing it’s way across the 50 States of the USA this weekend. He’s so savvy that CK in flogging his scents range.

In other casting news & talent management in the Hollywood hood, Brits are making a wave, alongside Australia’s Hemsworth clan. Also check out: 11 British Actors Invading Hollywood’s ‘It List’ too. An actor called Lloyd would be good from Britain, as a Fed approved and bonafide potential Hollywood talent too. At this stage, I’d go the unknown local community hero casting, then Skarsgard-Ryan, at the populous vote. They’ve both certainly got what it takes to helm such a film franchise for E L James.
