Nicole Kidman takes a jab at Angelina Jolie thus igniting The Baby War of ’08

July 15th, 2008 // 46 Comments

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have quietly thumbed their noses at celebs brokering baby photo deals. Probably not a smart move because I’m pretty sure Angelina Jolie could take Nicole in a fight. In fact, in the sake of research, I’m going to imagine such a battle right now. “Pow! BAM! Ziff! Use the battering ram, Nicole!” While I’m performing my journalistic duties, scope out what a friend of Nicole’s told the Sydney Morning Herald. “BOFF! Eek! Ease up, Angelina. She’s Australian!”:

“They don’t think it’s appropriate to make deals. They are still deciding how they feel about – if and when they will release a photo at all. But they realise there is enormous interest from the public and they are grateful and appreciative of that,” the source said.

Damn, if they’re just giving them away, I’ll get in on that. Give me two 8 x 10s and some wallets. I can’t guarantee I won’t pretend I’m a single father to pick up chicks at the mall – because I’m going to. So, can you maybe Photoshop Sunday Rose a bit? You know, make her look like the fruit of my loins. Just add a knife between her teeth and eyes that can see into a woman’s soul. (Read: Give her those X-Ray glasses with the spirals for lenses.)

    How dare they not be money grubbing publicity whore with their new asset – I mean, baby!

    bahahahaha

    Oh please. Her egg was old and his semen was produced while he had 10 different drugs and 2 quarts of alcohol in his system. Their baby has an arm growing out of its forehead (sort of the anti-John Graziano). Yeah, no pictures, please…

    While I would normally agree 100% with the Urban’s on this one, I understand that the Pitt’s are going to take every cent they make from selling the baby pictures and give it to charity.

    That is pretty cool of them, so I think this is a “special case” — not just normal Hollyweird baby pimping….

    Jennifer Aniston would simply give her own money to charity, not pimp her baby for pictures, and not brag about not pimping. TEAM ANISTON!

    @4- Brad and Angelina don’t need to sell baby pics to donate money – they’re filthy rich already. They are just looking for an excuse to pimp out their children and get attention. They are exactly the same as the others. It is not a “special case”. So in that way, I agree with #5 (except I’m not on Team Aniston, or on any side at all… I’m just calling it as I see it).

  7. veggi please

    @ #3: veggi you’re so racist. Please leave the site so that only non-racist posts show up.

  8. I love it. Good for her for standing up to this ridiculous trend.

    #7- That’s my troll. It’s obsessed with race and john g for some reason. Oh and sticking it’s finger in asses. It’s pretty much your all around jackass..

    I don’t think the Pitts have done their “baby photo for charitable donation” thing to garner attention so much as this: Once the couple opts to pose for pictures in the magazine, it gives the paps less of an incentive to stalk them 24/7 to get whatever pictures they can get of the kid.

    i agree with you. they are attention-seeking, narcissistic douchefucks.

    #5
    no way-aniston is a sourpuss and also self-absorbed. i never hear of her promoting any cause-a la george clooney, matt damon, even that ass sharon stone does AIDS work. she has beaucoup bucks from being paid over $1million plus per episode on friends.

    although nicole is no longer able to move her face, a curious decision for an actress, i respect her not pimping out her kids.

  12. selinawang

    She is really hot,i just heard that she is hooking up with a tall basketball player on a tall dating place named: —Tallloving – c*m—,really?

    I would read that remark more as a dig at Alba or either Spears or Aguilara, or, hell, all of them, not just the Jolie-Pitts. I agree with other posters that it could even be construed as a jab at everyone but the Jolie-Pitts, who could be exempt because of the every-penny-of-it-goes-to-charity. I think that’s a great way to make something better out of something nasty (since you know the paps are going to get those pictures either way).

    Big Dirk Nailed it. Brad and Angelina are off the hook because they are donating the money. So Keith and Nicole can just STFU!

    Srry for the triple post. My computer sucks!!

  19. It will be impossible to take pictures of their vampire spawn anyway.

  20. how could they not sell pics? they are getting a cagillion dollars for them. they should sell to the highest bidder and then head to the fertility clinic to try for triplets…

  21. I’m almost with Nicole Kidman on this one. I’m impressed she hasn’t sold out her kid to anybody.

  22. Ted Mosby

    Everyone knows Aussies like to go down under.

  23. ihatework

    The kid probably looks like Suri.

    #7, cry me a rainbow fucking river, full of hugs and joy and bunnies and unicorns. if you want “feel good”, go visit your uncle more often. this is a site for grown-up assholes.

    julia_nyc and veggi – girls please there are enough problems in the world without two used up whores slinging their fishy mung around! Can we focus instead on what an old vein throbbing in the foreheaded hag Nicole is resembling. Although I must admit, I love her lipstick and gown. Fabulous!

    xoxoxo

    if they sell pics of their kid and the pictures get far less than brangelina’s–which they absolutely would, and perhaps the offer has already come–it sort of emphasizes how far Nicole Kidman’s star has fallen, which has a snowball effect. This way they seem classy, and like they’re taking the high road.

  27. Beth is a fat girl name

    5- Jennifer Aniston doesn’t do crap for charity. She is too bust laying out. And you don’t know what that ugly dustin hoffman face would do with her kid’s pictures because she will never have children.

  28. BItch Please

    ummm…someone should have translated what she really meant… “no one offered us any cold hard cash for baby photos, because frankly, no one really gives a damn that we spawned.” Good God People…who the fuck would pay the news stand price of 3.95 to gawk at baby Kidman-Urban…the Brangelina babies will be a sight to behold…their beauty will most likely cure cancer and instill world peace.

  29. Jade

    I have great respect for the fact that Jolie had a bidding war for her baby pics and planned to donate every cent of $16mil to charity.

    Perhaps Kidman is just mad that she didn’t think of it herself and take the opportunity to make some money for charity and do a good thing.

  30. britney's weave

    #6 got it. even if they do give all the money to charity, they’re still using the glamorization of celebrity pregnancy to do it. considering the rampant pregnancies and spread of aids in africa, you’d think they’d promote birth control instead… it’s a little hypocritical. they’re using the system… but avoiding dealing with the problem.

  31. .

    I applaud Nicole and Keith’s decision, but I also applaud Brangelina’s decision because the selling of the photos is going for charity, and believe me, there a lot much more money needed for the ones who live in misery.

    There is too many poverty in the world, so I wish not only the Jolie-Pitts were doing this, but the rest of celebrities, millionaires and politicians too, and everyone in their real proportional economics… and this world would be not perfect but better than now….

  32. Mama Pinkus

    Amazing how quickly Ms. Kidman’s face unravels without her (pregnancy-denied) botox fixes – she actually has a real smile with wrinkles

  33. Jim

    I agree with Big Dirk up there: Brad and Angelina (Brangelina to those under ten years old) will be giving those millions to charity. Yes, agreed, it is a media circus around the birth of their twins, but think about it – they’ll solicit a 15-20 million dollar bid for exclusive photos of the babies and then give that money to charity. How can you say that 15-20 million dollars to a charity to help children (or crippled circus freaks or whatever their charity) isn’t positive? I could give $25 per month to the United Way for the rest of my life on my crappy paycheck and that would only come out to around $13,500. Brad and Angelina just had to do some pleasurable bumping and grinding and they can now help others to the tune of $15-20 million.

    So I guess Cheryl Burke can now be her double on Deseperate Housewives?

  35. stephanie

    wtf, my computer is going crazy…. I think we all know my comment didn’t belong here.

  36. joss

    @30

    Genius! Pictures of Brad and Angelina using birth control would sell for WAY more than pictures of kids. They should totally do that.

  37. mary anne

    #6- Spot on!! They’re media whores. Its just that people are so naive that the minute they see or hear the word “charity” they assume that its something else. Like, hello! Open your eyes people!

  38. Where's the Problem?

    Brad and Angie aren’t just filthy rich, they’re also filthy famous and in the public’s eye whether they sell the pics or not. So why not sell the pics? You can’t hate them for making money! Even better that they donate the proceeds to charity; actually, this is way better than not selling the pictures at all, just being grumpy because, let’s face it, Nicole and Keith baby pics probably wouldn’t sell for $16m. I mean, seriously, the reason everyone (read: every mag) can’t wait to see Brangelina’s offspring is to bask in the glow of more-beautiful-than-though to be!

  39. Sendy

    I’m just a bit curious.The Magazine HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP reported her profiles were found on the famous wealthy dating club R I C H L O V I N G.C O M last week and she was seeking her new guy there now! BTW, The girls there are really hot!

  40. girls won’t fight.
    THEY JUST “LICK” AT EACHOTHER(this is my favourite part)!!

  41. kit kitten

    AAAH! i think nicole needs a botox intervention. seriously – its like she has someone else’s face now. as for the baby photo hoo-ha: i don’t ever want to see another celebrity baby photo again as long as i live.

  42. benji

    Botox or not Nicole still looks way better than Angelina. I can’t understand why anyone finds Angelina attractive with that huge mouth and giant forehead.

  43. kiki

    @42 …you need to get to the eye doctor PRONTO!!

    nicole kidman looks like the frickin cryptkeeper ….i bet if someone offered keith an 8 ball and a big bottle of moonshine he’d have the polaroid out faster than you can say icantfeelmyfacekeith ….

    plus, nic probably KNEW the jolie-pitt babies would be getting ginormous offers for the pics and she’d get like 250 bucks from the enquirer….not pimping our baby out….awww…someone will get a photo of it anyway, why not sell them and give to charity too eh? isnt she supposed to be the ambassador of something? give it to them ffs….

    kidman is such a phoney, and a has been.

  44. tammy

    can someone explain to #7 the definition of racist please. veggi said nic is old and her hubby is a drunken druggie. that dosent equal racist. duh!!

  45. Erik

    How about selling your children as prostitutes and then giving all the money to charity. That’s allright, isn’t it?

    Or treating them like objects to be sold.

    Nothing like the warped thinking and excuses of true Narcissists (who always give off a persona of Being Larger Than Life)…

    REAL people give charity anonymously and discretely, if you ask me.

  46. lena

    Angelina and Jolie would sell their kids on E-bay if it meant that they could get some more narcissistic supply and attention.

    I’m not saying other celebrities don’t do this as well, but these two use charity etc as camouflage, which makes it MORE disgusting. But, alas, the wolves have always, and will always, wear sheep’s clothing.
