Between Australia‘s lack of success and whatever the hell she’s done to her face, Nicole Kidman is getting a lot of grief from the media, with some dubbing her “Queen Of The Flops.” While her status as a bankable actress is fair game (again…her face), there are a lot of men we should be giving the royal treatment before we start ripping on Nicole too harshly.
