First Look! Nicole Kidman As Grace of Monaco

Nicole Kidman wears a tiara well. One of the first stills from Kidman's new biopic Grace of Monaco shows the actress looking like royalty -- but taking on the role of Grace Kelly isn't the only part Kidman revealed this week.
Grace of Monaco, not set to hit theaters until 2014, tells the story of Kelly's transition from actress to royalty and her involvement with Monaco's Prince Rainier III and France's Charles De Gaulle dispute over tax laws in the early 1960s. "I wanted to be respectful of her, her story and her essence so hopefully that will all come through," Kidman, 45, said during a press junket in London this past week. "It's exciting but at first it was daunting. At the same time I had studied her and felt a kind of tenderness towards her."
But her role in the upcoming mystery thriller Stoker is a bit sexier. The new clip from this movie (found on Vulture) is oozing with sexual tension, and begins when Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode) comes to live with his niece (Mia Wasikowska) and her unstable mother (Kidman). The niece comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives and soon becomes increasingly infatuated with him. Stoker is scheduled to hit theaters some time this year.
