Nicole Kidman Goes Topless & Bottomless For V Magazine

Apparently Mario Testino is a tits and ass man.

Nicole Kidman fronts the latest issue of V Magazine, looking a little less 'classic beauty on the cover of a magazine' and a lot more To Die For than she usually does these days. Maybe trying to keep up with ex-husband Tom Cruise and his creepy W editorial, the images of Nicole (shot by Mario Testino) are nothing less than an overt depiction of the naked, overexposed female body.

The scene V paints reminds us that clichés exist, and that they are wonderful. "Beautiful, beautiful. You are so hot it is beyond! Look at your body! It is incredible!" says the Italian photographer to the half-naked 45-year-old movie star writhing around on the ground in her underwear (the "dead girl pose" as the article calls it).

The topic of Tom and Katie's recent divorce is totally off limits, but she does divulge her feelings on controversial foot-in-mouth-suffering director Lars Von Trier: "I think he has made some terrible, terrible statements and mistakes," she says, "but I don't think he really meant what he said. If he did, then I would not be friends with him ... Sometimes you just say, 'Shut up, Lars,' 'Put your clothes on, Lars ... But there's different philosophers in the world, and some of them are going to be extreme and controversial and some of them aren't. And we need both." Which mainly leads us to wonder why Lars is taking his clothes off on set. 

Nicole is currently promoting her latest film, The Paperboy, which is the one where she pees on Zac Efron. Directed by Lee Daniels (who was responsible for the very full-on Precious) and with Nicole, Zac and Matthew McConaughey in lead roles, The Paperboy will most likely attempt to subvert and destroy whatever cookie-cutter image there is left of the three Hollywood stars. Nicole plays a woman obsessed with writing letters to prison inmates. The film will premiere at the 50th Annual New York Film Festival, where Nicole will be honoured in a gala tribute for her 30 year career (!). Something else to look forward to with The Paperboy's release — Mariah Carey has contributed to its soundtrack.
