Nikki Kidman and Naomi Watts used to be besties. In fact, if my memory serves me correct, I believe Nicole had the "Best" part of the broken heart necklace, and Naomi had the "Friends." But reports are swirling around these days claiming that the two blond actresses are no longer best Aussie gal pals, but instead passive-aggressive frenemies who refuse to support each other in their profession endeavors.
Actually, if we're going to get into specifics, Nicole is supposedly the one not supporting Naomi, because she's jealous of her Oscar nomination. Rude.
If I were crafty enough, I totally would have done that torn-apart thing to the photo here.
According to the New York Daily News, Nicole was recently asked to show support for her dear friend Naomi, who is nominated for an Oscar for her role in The Impossible, by appearing in an upcoming CBS special on the Academy Awards. Nicole would have needed to appear on camera for a "quick" five minutes to talk about Watts' role, but she declined. According to an insider, "Clearly she’s not inclined to help her friend because she’s jealous she’s not in this year’s Oscar’s spotlight."
A source, most likely named Kicole Nidman, said that the reason Nicole couldn't do it is because she's a very busy actress, and it just didn't jive with her skedj. No biggie. The source said: "She couldn’t do it because of her schedule. It was a last-minute thing. Nicole and Naomi are best friends." However, the original source said: "It was a 'no' right off the bat [for Nicole]. She could have made time if it was a priority."
Not sure who I believe here, Nic or Naom, but I know I don't like this. Hopefully these two ladies will be able to settle things the American way -- texting "I'm sry. Pls don't h8 me! Luvumeanit!" -- as opposed to the Australian way -- sitting in a room with a bunch of hungry kangaroos and koala bears until someone apologizes. Nobody wins in that scenario. Trust me. I know from experience.
Do you think Nicole really snubbed Naomi or are you thinking this is just a bunch of malarkey?
