Nicole Kidman lands the latest cover of Harper’s Bazaar, looks amazing.

Nicole Kidman lands the latest cover of Harper’s Bazaar. The actress is promoting her new movie, where she plays Grace Kelly. Is that movie EVER going to be released? We’ve been seeing all these photo shoots preparing us for Nicole as Grace, but we don’t hear much about the movie itself!

Anyway, in the interview, she kinda sorta talks about ex-husband Tom Cruise, and also about winning an Oscar following their divorce.

After breaking up with Tom Cruise, winning an Oscar wasn’t enough solace for Nicole Kidman.

“I was having professional success and my personal life was struggling,” she says in Harper’s Bazaar.

Capturing a Best Actress award, as she did for her role in “The Hours,” “can show you the emptiness of your own life, which is kind of what it showed me,” she said.

Now happy with her husband, country singer Keith Urban, she said that she’s content with smaller film roles.

“I’m not carrying the whole film, and it’s not six to seven months’ work like ‘Moulin Rouge’!” the 46-year-old actress said. “I get to come for three weeks and then go home,” she added.

She looks beautiful styled like this, but release the movie, already!

Jennifer Lawrence stuns on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK!

jennifer-law-hbuk3

I believe this is one of Jennifer Lawrence’s most beautiful magazine spreads I’ve seen in a long time. She covers the latest Harper’s Bazaar UK, and she looks flawless. Inside the magazine, she opens up about the criticism she received for her 2013 Oscars speech, and more notably about her body. She talks about the pressure she got to lose weight after she won an Oscar – and to that she happily says ‘You can go f- yourself.’

On being criticised for her 2013 Oscar Speech: “[The other person said] ‘Other people are getting up and owning the stage and you sound like a stuttering idiot. Pull it together.’ And I said, ‘I’m not doing it on purpose, I’m uncomfortable and when people get uncomfortable they resort to their sh-t. I make awkward jokes and stutter. That was actually a moment when I really wanted it to be special. That was not the time I wanted to be the Down-home Girl. I wanted to be graceful.”

On loving on-set food: “My bodyguard Gilbert, right before they call ‘action,’ I’m like, ‘If there aren’t Cheez-Its here by the time they call cut, just go home.’ And he’ll start running. It cracks me up how seriously he takes it …. It’s not my performance that is motivating me. I want to get the on-set catering.”

On being called fat: “I was young. It was just the kind of sh-t that actresses have to go through. Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight. They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. It was just that. [Someone brought it up recently] They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I’m above it all. ‘You really still care about that?’ Yeah. I was a little girl. I was hurt. It doesn’t matter what accolades you get. I know it’ll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet,’ I’m like, ‘You can go f— yourself.’”

I can’t imagine what it’s like to be constantly hounded in Hollywood over what you look like. I see someone like Jennifer Lawrence, and I find her body refreshing. She looks gorgeous, she looks healthy, she doesn’t look the slightest bit overweight. I think pressuring her to be thinner is everything that’s wrong with today’s society. I LOVE that she is so secure in her body and the way she looks that she can just tell people to f- off.

Miley Cyrus lands the October cover of Harper’s Bazaar!

miley-cyrus-harpers-baz-oct

Miley Cyrus‘ twerking on the VMA’s may have cost her the cover of Vogue, but it looks like Harper’s Bazaar doesn’t have any issues with her!

The newly-single singer covers the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar, and you gotta give it to her, she looks great! The cover was shot by her favorite photographer, Terry Richardson.

Though it’s worth noting that this cover is a far cry from Miley’s first one for Bazaar, back in 2010 (pictured below). In her accompanying interview with Derek Blasberg, Miley makes it known that she’s now into Fashion with a captial F:

“I feel like every girl is trying to have a beauty shot and prove that they’re ‘fashion.’ But I can be in white leggings and a white sports bra and I’m on a whole other level of shit that those girls don’t even get yet because they don’t know how to do it.”

To prove Miley’s got Fashion under control, she tells Blasberg that she brings her own “shit” to photo shoots: an enormous gym bag “kit” containing “over-the-top, blingy, fabulous accessories… Chanel logo suspenders and belts, Versace Medusa necklaces and brooches, spiked stilettos, hats, and miles of shiny gold chains.” Why so much baggage? “What if I get to a photo shoot and the stylist just sucks?” Miley says.

Olivia Wilde looks gorgeous on the October cover of Harper’s Bazaar Spain.

The beautiful Olivia Wilde lands the October cover of Harper’s Bazaar Spain. I love the cover, she looks great. The photo of her kicking up her leg is great too. Olivia is currently promoting her two new movies, ‘Drinking Buddies’ and ‘Rush.’ I want to see ‘Drinking Buddies’ because it looks like a cute romantic comedy, but ‘Rush’ looks downright boring to me. I don’t like 70s movies, never have.

Anyway – they haven’t released anything from the interview of this magazine, so I’m hopping over to an interview she did with Food & Wine (because her ‘Drinking Buddies’ movie is all about BEER!). She tells the magazine that she has terrible eating habits – and maybe she does – but I find it slightly irritating to hear her talk about it, when she obviously works out. She doesn’t come across as snobby as some celebs who swear they NEVER work out, and eat whatever they want. I guess maybe Olivia’s more down to earth than we thought?

Deep-fried PB&J: “Now I’m ruined. I’m gonna turn into Marlon Brando. I had it at the Malibu Inn, which is a great music venue and bar right on the Pacific Coast Highway. My fiancé ordered the deep-fried PB&J–they use waffle batter, so it’s not too bready. The way the peanut butter and jelly melt together is far better than I could have imagined. It’s pretty much the ultimate stoner food.”

Beer: “Even though I’m Irish and I love Guinness, dark, dark, dark beers aren’t usually my thing. I like a good, aromatic IPA. Now I have become a total beer snob. I’m the annoying person who takes forever in the beer aisle at Whole Foods, because I’m standing there going, ‘Hmm. I’m not sure. I’m not sure if that’s a good selection. Do you have anything in the back? Is this local? I’ve never heard of this one. How hoppy is this?’ And other people are just like, ‘Please, move on.’”

Wine: “Oh yeah, I’m a wino. I won’t say there’s one grape I like best, though, because I do like blends. Do you know The Prisoner? That’s a blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. That’s just a fabulous wine. But my favorite wine of all time is a Napa Valley Cabernet called Scarecrow. It’s mailing-list only, so it’s hard to find, but if you ever see a bottle of Scarecrow, get it.”

Pasta: “I have recently fallen in love with an Italian restaurant downtown called Carbone. I’ve always found sea urchin to be too fishy, but at Carbone, they serve a sea urchin dish that is incredible. It’s just garlicky and buttery and amazing. They also make the best linguine vongole I’ve ever had. For me, my number one comfort food–the food that really feels like a hug on the inside–is pasta. Probably a fresh linguine with arrabbiata sauce would be my top pick. Maybe I’d have some bread on the side, with some cheese or olive oil, too. I guess I crave the basic, carby things that we’re not supposed to eat.”
