When word broke that Nicole Kidman was pregnant back in January, she backed out of her role in The Reader, leaving the door wide open for Kate Winslet to take over. One waifish beauty with a shaky box office take replaced with a beautiful and talented actress that kicks all sorts of ass -- it was excellent news! And now we get to see just how she ages through the feature. Above you can check out a zoomed version, and then head over to Just Jared for a number of other oldie shots that were taken in Berlin, Germany last week. They've got some talented makeup artists working their magic on this feature.
The Reader is the story of a man (Ralph Fiennes) who has been sexually obsessed with an older woman (Winslet) for years -- one who is prosecuted for Nazi war crimes when it is revealed that she was a guard at Auschwitz. It should be all sorts of dramatic and sexy, steaming up the screen when it hits theaters on December 12.
