At the beginning of 2000, Nicole Kidman reached a career peak when she took home an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance as the author Virginia Woolf in The Hours.
The performance was described as delicate and moving which was a far cry from Salma Hayek's stunning performance of Frida
along with Renee Zellweger's vivacious character of Chicago's Roxie Hart.
After years of acting roles that varied in quality, Nicole Kidman finally made it to the top of the list and, surprisingly the next year,
she starred in one of the most expensive big-budget films ever made the 2004's The Stepford Wives remake.
However, let us backtrack for a moment: Nicole Kidman had spent in the 1990s,
alternating between a few forgotten dramas such as Malice and My Life and the wildly popular,
but boring blockbusters like the second-worst 1990s Batman film in the 1990s and The Peacemaker.
