AUS­TRALIA’S RED-CAR­PET ROY­ALTY

WHO - - Contents -

Ni­cole Kid­man has been Aus­tralia’s golden girl for as long as I can re­mem­ber. She’s had a ca­reer most ac­tors and ac­tresses can only dream of, play­ing emo­tion­ally de­mand­ing and un­de­ni­ably risky char­ac­ters on the small and big screen and in theatre. It’s no se­cret that in the TV and film in­dus­try, roles be­gin to dis­ap­pear when women meet a cer­tain age – but Ni­cole has man­aged to cre­ate a ca­reer resur­gence in hit af­ter hit. This year alone, Ni­cole stars in three films – Aqua­man, Boy Erased and De­stroyer. Her tal­ent speaks for it­self and she’s paving the way for so many ac­tresses to fol­low her, but set­ting the bar very, very high. What I love most about Ni­cole is her hon­esty and her warmth. She’s been in the head­lines for most of her ca­reer due to her high-pro­file mar­riage to Tom Cruise, the fall­out from their di­vorce and for mar­ry­ing coun­try roy­alty Keith Ur­ban, whose shared his story of his bat­tle with his own demons so hon­estly and beau­ti­fully. In our in­ter­view, Ni­cole spoke to Jenny Cooney Car­rillo about her chil­dren, those re­cent Tom com­ments, rais­ing strong girls and lov­ing too hard. It’s her most can­did chat yet, and I hope you love it as much as we do. Kesh­nee Kemp @kesh­nee
