Now gossip queen targets Nicole Kidman's kids
December 20, 2007 12:00am
NICOLE Kidman is under personal attack on two fronts today: first gossip bitch Perez Hilton mocked the Aussie star in his continuing vendetta by leaping on claims her children call Katie Holmes "mom" - and now the Vatican has urged movie-goers to avoid her new movie The Golden Compass.
In recent weeks Hilton has waged an increasingly nasty personal war against 40-year-old Kidman, with each item on his website - the most popular Hollywood gossip blog in the world - getting more and more bitchy.
His latest story is so vicious it has been headlined: "Nicole Kidman's Kids Really Hate Her!".
Today's item also questions whether Kidman even has a heart - and Hollywood insiders are baffled why the self-confessed gay queen has taken such an intense dislike to Kidman and why he is so actively taunting her about her relationship with her children.

At the same time it would appear he has given considerable space on his site to promote Holmes, the actress wife of Kidman's former husband Tom Cruise.
Insiders say Hilton is suggesting the two children of Kidman and Cruise prefer 29-year-old Holmes to the Aussie, who is now in Sydney spending Christmas with her family.
Among his recent string of web jibes on Kidman, Hilton:
- BAGGED out her new movie The Golden Compass as a "stinker" and "yet another bomb to Nicole's string of commercial disasters!"
- INSISTED the recent unveiling of her waxwork at London's Madame Tussauds gallery is more attractive than her. "The waxwork looks just like her. How sad is it when the wax version of you looks better than the real thing?!"
- MOCKED her looks again when discussing the Catholic Church's concerns over The Golden Compass. "But that will make Nicole Kidman sad. No frown lines!"
- FURTHER on her looks, Hilton called Kidman a "botox w****", ran a headline above her photograph saying "Does This Scare You Too?" then wrote: "We're trying really hard not to be so superficial - and failing miserably! Nicole Kidman was a hot mess at the world premiere of the Anti-God film The Golden Compass, Monday night in London. From the not-quite-right hair to the bad choice of lipstick and the face that doesn't move. Wrong all over! Keith Urban was at the premiere with his wife. At least he likes her."
- RAN a headline on a photograph of Kidman which simply said: "Lies". The item referred to the following quote from the actress: "I wear sunscreen and I don't smoke. I take care of myself. I'm proud to say that. To be honest, I am completely natural."
In the latest Hilton item published today, he refers to a new interview when he writes: "Katie Holmes reveals that Tom Cruise's two adopted children with Nicole Kidman, Connor and Isabella, call her mom.
"Says Holmes, 'His first two children are incredible, really smart and kind. They call me 'Mom.' So Tom understands the female bond and he loves it.'
"That must break Kidman's heart, if she has one.
"Just last month, in this interview, Nicole told the UK's GMTV that her kids DON'T call her mom.
"Said Kidman, 'My kids don't call me mommy, they don't even call me mom. They call me Nicole, which I hate and tell them off for it.
"Katie is more of a 'mom' to Connor and Isabella than Nicole is!!!
"That must hurt!"
Meanwhile, the Vatican today released a long editorial in which it condemns Nicole Kidman's latest film The Golden Compass, calling it "anti-Christmas."
Vatican paper L'Osservatore Romano said the movie advocates "a totally atheist ideology, the enemy of all religions, traditional and institutional, and of Christianity and Catholicism in particular".
The film tells the story of an orphan living in a parallel universe in which a dogmatic dictatorship - the Magisterium, which also refers to the teaching authority of the Roman Catholic Church - threatens to dominate the world.
"The fact that the film earned only $29.13 million in box office on the first weekend is a consolation," L'Osservatore Romano said.
The flick led the US box office on its opening weekend earlier this month but fell short of expectations for such a high-budget production.
The film, packed with special effects, cost $174.77 million to make.
Criticism from some religious groups led to a watering down of religious elements in the film, to the dismay of secular organisations and movie fans.
