Birthday Girl: Nicole Kidman

The beautiful and talented Nicole Kidman turns 45 today with a nearly three-decade long filmography under her belt. And she is far from done. She could very well be Emmy-nominated in a few weeks for her recent work in Hemingway & Gellhorn where she played Ernest Hemingway's third wife Martha Gellhorn. And even if she isn't, people are already talking about a fourth Oscar nomination for Lee Daniels' The Paperboy.

And while she has obviously starred and excelled in so many films, her role as the courtesan Satine in Moulin Rouge remains my absolute favorite. Her leading man, Ewan McGregor (who turned 40 just last year), played the penniless writer Christian who falls in love with her, and really how could he not? My one dream is for them to be reunited in film again. If it's in a musical then it'd be icing on the cake, but I really just want them together. Make it happen, Hollywood!

Thanks for reading. Feel free to drop me a line. Instead of being Anonymous though, pick a name. Any name would do. Thanks again!
