Nicole Kidman Gushes That Taylor Swift 'Really Deserves' The Glory That's Been Coming Her Way

When pop-culture historians reflect on the tumultuous final year of the aughts, fraught with something called an Octo-Mom and more Gosselin drama than a lifetime subscription to Star magazine could hold, the bright spot will undoubtedly be the indefatigable Taylor Swift. The country singer's led a charmed year for sure, from hosting "Saturday Night Live" to (maybe) dating one of the hottest young actors around. So it wouldn't be surprising if the 19-year-old was sporting quite the big head. But confirming what we have long suspected, one of Hollywood's heavy weights recently confirmed that Taylor couldn't be more of a sweetheart. When we caught up with Nicole Kidman at the press junket for her upcoming movie musical "Nine," the actress gushed about the singing sensation.

"She's a honey bun," Nicole said. "She's everything that she appears to be." And this is coming from a woman who could rightfully be scorned. You may recall that just a few weeks ago, Taylor beat out Nicole's hubby, country singer Keith Urban, for the title of Entertainer of the Year at the Country Music Awards. But never for one moment did Nicole think about pulling a "Kanye" to interrupt Taylor's acceptance speech.

"She is a delight," Nicole continued. "And she so deserves what's happening to her because, having met her and seeing her actually really become a phenomenon over the past couple of years, she really deserves it."

What do you think about Nicole's comments regarding Taylor?
