Abstract:

Nicole Kidman is a high-profile, successful exponent of contemporary commodity stardom, and a product of fundamental changes in the media industries over the last two decades. Pam Cook vividly brings to life her journey from Australian actress to global superstar, looking at her work in different contexts from film and television to fashion, commercials, philanthropy and the Internet. In-depth analysis of key films such as Dead Calm, To Die For, Eyes Wide Shut and The Hours reveals Kidman's development of an 'actorly' performance style that enables her to combine stardom and celebrity with award-winning acting. Cook delves into the intricate media networks that circulate Kidman's image and story, assessing the contribution of her Australian identity to building her personal brand, the Botox controversy, her recent move into production and her cultural impact. This absorbing case study unveils a star narrative as compelling as any that appears in her films.
