Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie is the learner diva between six drama queens

Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie is the learner diva between six drama queensIt might not be a complete Who's Who of Hollywood actress royalty, but it's a darn good effort.

As the cast of new movie musical Nine came together for a photoshoot for US Vogue - shot by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz - one star stood out amongst her esteemed colleagues.

Looking understandably nervous surrounded by Hollywood royalty, is Black Eyed Peas singer Stacy Ferguson aka Fergie.

The new movie is her first big screen role, and seemingly a baptism of fire. Her six female co-stars have not only a handful of Oscars between them – but also decades of experience.

The movie's stars Sophia Loren, Judi Dench, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, and Marion Cotillard all have Oscars to their name, and Kate Hudson narrowly missed out on an Academy Award.

Miss Dench, 74, has had six Oscar nominations, and won the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for 1998 for Shakespeare In Love.

Miss Loren, the oldest cast member at 75 years old, won the Best Actress Oscar for 1960 movie La Ciociara, better known as Two Women.

Miss Cruz, 35, Miss Kidman, 42, and Miss Cotillard, 34, are also past Oscar winners, for Vicky Cristina Barcelona, The Hours and La Vie En Rose respectively.

Miss Hudson, 30, meanwhile, narrowly missed out on the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for 2000 film Almost Famous. And, as the daughter of actress Goldie Hawn, acting is clearly in her blood.

Although she doesn’t have the acting experience behind her, Miss Ferguson should have no trouble when it comes to the music.

The Black Eyed Peas singer, 34, best known for hits like Boom Boom Pow and Where is the Love?, won three Grammy Awards with the band.

Nine tells the story of film director Guido Contini, played by Daniel Day Lewis, and the many women in his life.

The movie explores how Contini confronted a mid-life crisis, with creative troubles and personal woes.

He tries to balance this with his women, including his wife, played by Cotillard, his mistress, played by Cruz, his muse, played by Kidman, and his costume designer, played by Dench.

He must also contend with a fashion journalist, played by Hudson, a prostitute from his youth, played by Ferguson, and his mother, played by Loren.

The original 1982 Broadway production of Nine won five Tony Awards including Best Musical.

The big screen version, directed by Rob Marshall, is due to be released in the UK on Christmas Day.
