Nicole Kidman lands the March cover of InStyle Magazine, to promote her new movie “Grace of Monaco.” Will this movie ever be released? I don’t think it’s a good sign…. but that’s just me.

Anyway, in the new issue, the Australian tells the magazine that she’s happiest in the country. “I’m very country at heart,” says the Oscar winner. “I have a real desire to be outdoors, a desire for simplicity—a slightly slower, relaxed approach to life. A community, not a big-city feel. That’s what I grew up with, and it’s what I prefer.”

Kidman, 46, has been married to country star Keith Urban since 2006 and the couple have two children together, daughters Sunday and Faith. The family calls Nashville, Tenn. home, but they have found a comfort in their often vagabond lifestyle. Between Kidman’s filming and Urban’s tours, the Australian–raised duo has grown very accustomed to life on the road — and even life apart.

“Keith and I are both gypsies at heart. We can make our home wherever we are. The girls are like that too now, so we take them everywhere,” she said, crediting Urban’s tour bus for showing her most of America.

However, two busy careers mean Kidman and Urban aren’t always able to accommodate each others’ schedules, with Kidman telling InStyle, “For every single night he’s away, he leaves me a love letter. Every single night of our relationship.”

A little known fact about Nicole is that she was actually born in Hawaii. “I used to pretend to the kids at school that I was born right on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu,” she said. “I was actually delivered in a hospital—but it sounded good, and they believed me.”

The 46-year-old actress will next star as the iconic princess and actress Grace Kelly in ‘Grace of Monaco.’ The film will premiere at Cannes this May. An actress who is used to taking risks, Nicole said “I always try to push through fear. People always say, ‘Oh, you take such risks,’ or ‘You’re brave.’ And I’m like, ‘Well, if you only knew—inside I’m really frightened!”

Divide hair into middle part. Using one-inch curling iron, curl the hair horizontally. Pin each curl with pin curl clips and allow hair to cool.
Once cooled, remove the pins one by one, and use a soft-bristle brush to gently backcomb each curl. Spray roots with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray and tease into place.
Repeat this process working from the bottom to the top of the head, ensuring you focus the teasing at the roots for that voluminous feel.
To finish, smooth out the part to create a strong graphic finish. Set the look with a blast of TRESemmé TRES Two Freeze Hold Hairspray.

The gorgeous Allison Williams featured in this month’s Glamour Magazine!

allison-w-glamour2

Allison Williams is featured in the March issue of Glamour Magazine, and the ‘Girls’ actress looks gorgeous! I think she is drop-dead-beautiful, but not everyone will agree with me. I find her mesmerizing on ‘Girls,’ she’s just sooooooo pretty. I find her character Marnie a bit annoying, but aren’t ALL the characters on Girls annoying? I have said since the beginning that Adam is my favorite character on Girls – I can almost do without the rest of them. I’m secretly hoping Shoshanna gets killed off this season. Man, I cannot STAND her character!

Anyway, in the interview that goes with these gorgeous pics, Allison opens up about wanting a family of her own, and how she would throw away her acting career in a second for a chance at having babies. I can respect that. I don’t really believe her, but I respect it if it’s true. I don’t think she’s done enough acting to feel like she’s able to move on and start a family. I know I don’t KNOW her personally, but what else has she done besides Girls? Not much. I think she has many years of acting to come before she gives it up to be a stay-at-home-mom.

Career vs. motherhood: “My goal is to create a career I can walk away from and become a mom. I’d love to be a mom – and not have to bring my kids into my trailer. That’s my long-term thinking. You gotta call it on the fly to a certain extent.”

She just wants to act, not be “famous”: “If you go into acting for love of the craft, and you dodge the fame aspect, it’s more sustainable.”

Her personal style: “In college I wore a lot of layers, jewelry, and makeup. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve gotten more control of the simple. A typical look is pants and a blazer, or a dress. On the red carpet, it has to be comfortable.”

Lena Dunham vs. Tina Fey: “[Tina] is humble and efficient. That exact combination was everything to me. Tina knows everyone’s name. It’s funny, [Girls creator and star] Lena Dunham is the same way. It’s hard to misbehave when your boss is so gracious.”

On GIRLS: “I root for Hannah and Marnie more than I do for Hannah and Adam. Marnie needs a close female friend. Who doesn’t? I’d be nowhere without my girlfriends.”

What she looks for in a friend: “I think the qualities I look for are loyalty, honesty and I think empathy is huge, because as a girl I am entitled to say often we think we want honesty but we want is for someone to say ”No, no you look great.’”
