Kidman Gets an Apology

The Daily Record has issued an apology to Nicole Kidman for blatantly making crap up. Last week they quoted Nicole saying she bashed Angelina's charity work and the attention that she gets for it. When we first saw the report we thought it seemed a bit odd. Turns out it was because it wasn't true. Here's more:

"In an article published on Friday, Sept. 8, we attributed comments to Nicole Kidman in relation to Angelina Jolie. We accept that Ms. Kidman did not make those comments to us and we apologize for any upset," the paper said in a statement and in print on Monday.

"It's not like Angelina is any better than a nurse working in a hospital, but she's getting the publicity for her contribution," the quotation read in part.

Kidman, who is an ambassador to UNIFEM, the United Nations Development Fund for Women, has a "tremendous admiration for Ms. Jolie and her tireless, worldwide charitable work," a rep for the Australian actress said in a statement Monday.

I mean who does that? Seriously. Nicole seems to really be enjoying her new life in Nashville. Here she is with her new mother-in-law. She doesn't look pregnant, today at least.

I was going to say it's pretty stupid to make up quotes and expect to get away with it. But is sounds from the Red Magazine article like what she said was just misinterpreted, and I agree with it. Angelina should not get any special praise just because she is a celeb. All people helping out should be praised.

ohsuri- you know there is a MAJOR rumor that she was born ahemaphrodite. Jamie Lynn curtis was as well. Not sure if it is true, but I have heard it a lot. In that case, it makes her more interesting!

cath, the way it is worded in the article you read, the first sentence actually makes it sound NOT nearly as bad as they are trying to make it. I think this a great example of quotations being misinterpreted. If you read it on the top of the page, it suggests she bashes her, in your post, which are the actual quotes, it comes across not demeaning to Ms Jolie. I do think she has valid points, and I think it is funny that the media will take any chance it gets to pit 2 celebs against each other. I too do not think AJ deserves any more praise then that particular doctor, or anyone that is actually contributing like that. Then again, Angie never said she was any better either. I know my classy Nicole would not bash Angelina. Thanks for the info

I don't trust anything NK says really.. She tried to sell the whole TinyTom Cruise relationship. I would not be surprised is she was also gay..

Nicole Kidman did make those comments, she just didn't make them to that newspaper, she made them in an interview with Red Magazine in the U.K. Her PR people are good at damage control, making everyone think those quotes were made up by the newspaper. Here it is in the Red Magazine article: "While she knows that her celebrity status is a powerful tool, Nicole doesn't believe actresses like her and Angelina Jolie should get extra points for doing 'the right thing'. "It's not like Angelina is any better than a nurse working in a hospital, but she's the one getting the publicity for her contribution, " she explains. "I have a friend who is a doctor, and every year he works in Africa for two months receiving no payment. So everyone is on the same playing field, whether you offer your services as the doctor or as Angelina does."

she looks cute here. I kinda dig the outfit. --- Check out my latest poll: Would you rather...('NERD' VERSION!!!)

well, then Michael Jackson, Mel Gibson, Tom Cruise better jet off to Darfur to try to help thier PR situations, I may actually have respect for them to throw themselves out there like that. I certainly would respect a person that is willing to be litterally in the midst of it all, rather then just talk about it and write a check. It worked for AJ, because people LOVE her. If damage control is the perception of her actions, more celebs should follow. Hi Jenna!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If Lindsay Lohan can sue Milk Studios for falling on their premises while she was probbly as high as a kite I'm sure Nicole can sue for such crap. I mean come on you have to know that if you lie about two such high profile people your a** will be road kill.

Why does AJ always have to come up with the word "Charity". Whether you like her not.. she makes the difference in children's lives.. that is admirable.. how could anyone find fault in that? I know I have my questions about things but.. there are so many other Celebs that do CRAP with their time and money. Whatever someones motive is..children benefit.. how can that EVER be wrong? JMO

I agree that Angelina didn't start her charitable efforts because of any part she played, or didn't play, in the demise of the so-called 'golden couple'. Long before that, she was described by many sources as beating the PR drums to offset some pretty whacked behavior that had resulted in bad press. This one is easier to track than the usual chicken/egg scenario. All pre-Pitt. Brangelina are a well-matched pair when it comes to spin.

her hair is in a messy ponytail. I KNEW that this was made up, NK has been very careful through the years not to badmouth her peers, so I knew this story was BS. I have to say, most people did not acknowledge Angies work until the demise of the golden couple. Everyone started using it against her, like it was her way of making up for what she "did". Imabeleiver nailed when she mentioned that Angie has traveled to places most stars would not even dare to go. Her charity work has been her priority way before people stared hating on her. I am incredibly impressed with her actions, not even to mention the amount of $$ she has put out. I do get annoyed when people bash her, only because she is so much more of a real human being then people give her credit for, but we all have our opinions, so its all good.

How can you just blantantly make up quotes and expect to get away with it. I wonder if that "report" got fired.

I didn't know Nicole was Ambassador for the UNIFEM, until a few days ago. Angelina is well known for being a great Goowill Ambassador. She puts her heart in her work.
Imabeliever Imabeliever 10 years
Hollygolitely Nic is an Ambassador for the UNIFEM.. Angelina is a Goodwill Ambassador for UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR.) And the work they both do is important. But Angie was very hands on even before the cameras began to follow her everywhere. She actually went to the Sudan(extremely dangerous) and went to Sierra Leone and stayed with the refugees and held the amputees and asked the questions as to what they needed and the challanges that faced them. That is a hell of a lot more than most "celebs" would do. And the pap were going to hunt them down for the first pic of Shiloh anyways.. the turned a pain the ass situation into a positive..but I guess you are right it would have been better for the low life paparazzi to line their own sleazy pockets with a couple million or for Brad and Angie to keep it and buy a new house or some jewlery with it.. those poverty stricken starving disease ridden children of other nations need to just die already.
