"I really wanted that": Nicole Kidman Was Told She Wasn't Talented Enough For $363M Movie That Went To Julia Roberts Only To Get 5 Oscar Nominations Years Later
2023/07/16

Nicole Kidman is a distinguished actress whose acting talent has resulted in several iconic characters over the years. Known for her dedication to her craft and her nuanced performances, she has rightfully established herself as one of the most respected and admired actors in the world of cinema.

Despite being as accomplished and talented as she is now, she had humble beginnings as an actor. Early on in her career when she was relatively lesser known, the makers of Julia Roberts's starter film rejected Kidman stating that she wasn't talented enough.

One of the most admired actresses in Hollywood, Nicole Kidman has shown how talented and versatile an artist she is. Having starred in films like Eyes Wide Shut, The Others, and Lion to name a few, the award-winning actress has certainly shown her prowess as a compelling performer. But there was once a time when she was rejected from her 'dream role as the makers thought she wasn't known enough or talented enough to take on such a major role.

Back in the late '90s, the Big Little Lies star wanted to star in the romcom Notting Hill opposite Hugh Grant. However, she was rejected and Julia Roberts ended up starring in the iconic film. In an interview with Hugh Grant, Nicole Kidman stated,

"I really wanted the role that Julia Roberts played in Notting Hill. But I wasn't well known enough, and I wasn't talented enough."

While Roberts certainly did an excellent job, it would have been pretty interesting to see Kidman star opposite Hugh Grant. They would have made an excellent pair seeing how exceptional and electrifying their performances were in the drama The Undoing.

After Being Rejected For Being Talentless, Nicole Kidman Won Five Oscar Nominations

Calling Nicole Kidman talentless might be the wildest thing anyone has ever done. Exceptionally compelling and an extremely graceful performer, the Days of Thunder star was called talentless once. Despite the harsh criticism, Kidman was not deterred, instead, she worked hard to make a name for herself.

The result was she went a Golden Globe for her work in To Die For just after being replaced by Julia Roberts in Notting Hill. Furthermore, years later she got five Oscar nominations, along with one win. These accolades stand as a testament to the fact that Nicole Kidman is in fact a captivating, talented, and versatile actress that deserves every bit of fame and acclaim.

Notting Hill can be rented on Amazon Instant Video.
