Nicole dreamed of being a reporter
Kidman (pictured) was inspired to take up writing after playing famed war reporter Martha Gellhorn in TV movie Hemingway & Gellhorn. The Australian actress admits shooting the project with Clive Owen as Gellhorn’s husband Ernest Hemingway reignited her own interest in creative writing. ‘‘I write for myself – it’s my way of letting myself go. It’s purging. I first stumbled into it as a teenager,’’ Kidman tells Britain’s Daily Telegraph. Kidman was so passionate about the news as a child, she told her clinical psychologist father she dreamed of becoming a reporter.
