Nicole Kidman unrecognisable in dramatic transformation

She’s one of the biggest actors in Hollywood, constantly adapting and challenging herself with new roles.

And Aussie superstar Nicole Kidman looks nearly unrecognisable in her latest Instagram photo, sharing a snap from the set of her new project Roar, where she has transformed for the part.

The 54-year-old is currently shooting Roar in Sydney’s Cronulla alongside Judy Davis and Simon Baker.

The eight-part Apple TV series is based on Irish author Cecelia Ahern’s collection of 30 short stories, with each one functioning as a stand-alone story.


Nicole has donned a new pixie haircut for the role, showing off her new strawberry blonde locks in the Instagram photo.

“On set,” she captioned the snap, which shows her facing to the side with a rainbow in the background.

“What’s going on with the hair I’m scared,” one person commented.

“This gives me Julie Andrews vibes from Sound of Music,” another person wrote.

“You let them cut your fabulous hair??? I hope that’s a wig. But you’re still beautiful,” another said.

Others said Nicole looked ‘simply stunning’ and told her they loved her new hairstyle.
