Throughout all of its ups and downs, Nicole Kidman’s filmography has never failed to fascinate.

Whether she’s belting tunes in Moulin Rouge! or playing author Virginia Woolf in The Hours, Kidman’s decades-plus career has been filled with challenging and complex roles in films that most A-list beauties wouldn’t even attempt to go near.

Case in point: Friday’s The Paperboy, in which she plays a Southern woman involved with a man on death row.

The performance, which many critics are calling “brave,” is already generating major buzz, and is likely to be added to Kidman’s list of eclectic moments on the big screen.

Celebuzz has rounded up Kidman’s eight most-memorable moments on the big screen. Check them out, above, then be sure to see The Paperboy, in theaters Friday.
