AUSTRALIA’S RED-CARPET ROYALTY
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
