Nicole Kidman gets to explore domestic bliss in her upcoming film The Stepford Wives, director Frank Oz's dark comedic remake of the 1975 horror flick, costarring Matthew Broderick. "It's not a heavy movie, and it's good to have some fun walking around being a Stepford Wife," says Kidman, 36. "Plus, Matthew is totally adorable-Sarah Jessica [Parker] is very lucky." In real life Kidman appreciates a quiet night in. "When I'm at home, I like Chinese food and DVDs," she says, offering this advice to any would-be suitors: "With takeout and DVDs, I'm yours."
Now that he's got a daughter of his own (7-year-old Stella), Antonio Banderas cringes at the memory of his approach to women in his younger days. "When I see girls who are 20 years old, I imagine that 20-year-old's father who doesn't want her to be hurt," says Banderas, 43, who stars in Once Upon a Time in Mexico, the sequel to 1995's Desperado. "But [when I was younger] I used to think, 'I don't care about her family, I just want her!' " Which is why Banderas already has a strategy for screening Stella's potential beaux: "I'll put on my Desperado suit when a guy comes for a date with her. I'll have the sword out, and I'll say, 'What do you want from her?' "
Molly Shannon is due to have her first child on Sept. 25, and the mommy-to-be admits that she's got some insecurities about the situation. "I babysat a lot when I was younger, but babies kind of scared me," says Shannon, 39, who costars in the upcoming kids' comedy Good Boy! "But the nesting instinct is really kicking in. I want to clean and organize everything in the apartment." So what's the Saturday Night Live alum's recipe for a happy pregnancy? "I have one shot of Starbucks a day," says Shannon, who is engaged to artist Fritz Chesnut. "And my doctor told me to eat meat, so I found all the best cheeseburger [joints] in New York City. You can't worry about weight gain too much. If your body isn't in perfect shape, so be it."
A Mountain Out of a Mole
Enrique Iglesias had his trademark facial mole removed earlier this year after doctors warned him it might become cancerous. The simple medical procedure was a major personal ordeal for the singer. "I hate hospitals and knives scare me. I was freaking out," says Iglesias, 28, who will release his as-yet-untitled English-language CD this fall. "I was a big baby for the entire five minutes it took to remove the mole. Afterward, my doctor wanted to show me what he'd done to other people, like face-lifts and nose jobs. I couldn't look for a minute."
Dressing Down Messing
Will & Grace's Debra Messing wishes some of her admirers would give her a little more space. "I've had overly excited fans pull on my backpack from behind, making me feel like I was being mugged," says the 35-year-old actress. "I've also had women park themselves outside of dressing rooms in stores, waiting for me to come out. Then they'd basically tell me every outfit I tried on was ugly. They'd say, 'No. Uh-uh. Don't like it,' and I'd have no idea who these people are."
