She is mostly known for her performance in ‘Days of Thunder’, ‘Far and Away’, ‘Batman Forever’, Eyes Wide Shut’ and ‘Moulin Rouge!

Nicole Kidman Childhood & Early Life

Nicole Kidman was born to David Kidman and Janelle Ann. While her father was a biochemist, clinical psychologist, and author, her mother was a nursing instructor. She has a younger sister named Antonio Kidman.

Both her parents were Australian citizens but were temporarily in United States on educational visa when Kidman was born. Thus, young Kidman could claim citizenship of both Australia and the United States.

Kidman returned with her parents to Australia at the age of four. She attended Lane Cove Public School, post which she was enrolled at the North Sydney Girls’ High School.

Since the young age, Kidman was bit by the acting bug which was prevalently seen all through her primary and high school years. She even enrolled for a class at ballet.

However, the unfortunate incident when her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer caused Kidman to forgo her studies. She worked as a massage therapist to assist the family financially.

Later on, Kidman attended the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne and Phillip Street Theatre in Sydney. She followed this up by attending the Australian Theatre for Young People.

Kidman took up acting, drama and mime. Her ingrained talent for the same, coupled with good looks, made Kidman’s professional venture into the world of entertainment a natural move.

Nicole Kidman Career

Nicole-Kidman-Career

Kidman’s debut in the film industry was in the remake of the Australian holiday season favourite ‘Bush Christmas’ in 1983. Thereafter, she did quite a couple of films including ‘BMX Bandits’, ‘Watch the Shadows Dance’, and ‘Windrider’. Other than films, Kidman was also seen in various television series, such as ‘Five Mile Creek’, ‘A Country Practice’ and the miniseries ‘Vietnam’.

In 1988, came ‘Emerald City’. The film had Kidman playing a supporting role with panache. She did complete justice to her role and was duly praised by both public and critics.

The big leap in Kidman’s career came with the release of the film ‘Dead Calm’ in 1989. Her role of Rae Ingram garnered rave reviews and brought her international fame and recognition.

Since then, there was no looking back for this talented and versatile actor who gave one hit after the other. ‘Days of Thunder’ was Kidman’s big ticket to success in Hollywood. The film was not only her debut in the American film industry but also featured in the highest-grossing films of the year.

Kidman was enjoying the much deserved career success. Revelling in the accomplishment, however, she did not lose focus and paid utmost attention to her career graph which was escalating upwards. She gave some terrific performances in films like ‘Flirting’, ‘Billy Bathgate’, ‘Far and Away’ and ‘My Life’.

1995 was a super successful year for Kidman. She bagged the lead roles for the movies ‘Batman Forever’ and ‘To Die For’. While the former has been highest-grossing live-action film as of 2011, the latter won her, her first Golden Globe award.

While her films were faring well at the box office and receiving much popular and critical acclaim, Kidman did not forsake the love for theatre and was seen playing in the David Hare play, ‘The Blue Room’, which opened in London.

Next, she starred opposite Tom Cruise for the film, ‘Eyes Wide Shut’. Though the film gained positive reviews at the opening, it was later subject to censorship controversies due to the explicit nature of sex scenes.

Kidman’s next venture for the big screen was with the British American film, ‘Birthday Girl’ where she played a mail-order bride.

The versatility of Kidman was put to test in the year 2001 when two of her movies, which were entirely different from each other, were released. While ‘Moulin Rouge’ was a musical feat wherein she played the character of a cabaret actress and courtesan, ‘The Others’, a Spanish horror film had Kidman play the role of a Catholic mother of two. Least surprisingly, Kidman was commendable in both the films and attracted much positive response.

Following this, Kidman featured in Stephen Daldry’s ‘The Hours’. The film had Kidman playing the role of an author who is suffering from bouts of depression and mental illness. She played the character with so much conviction and excellence that she was bestowed with an Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA for the same, in addition to the numerous critics’ awards.

The escalating super successful fantasy tale of Kidman’s professional career came to a halt in 2004 and 2005. ‘Birth’, ‘The Stepford Wives’, ‘The Interpreter’ and ‘Bewitched’ all bombed at the box office badly and brought the career graph of Kidman to an all-time low.

Kidman was next seen opposite Robert Downey Jr. for the film, ‘Fur’ in 2006. Though the film did not fare exceptionally well at the box office, the actors did receive positive review for the same. ‘Happy Feet’, which was released in the same year, had Kidman as one of the voiceover artist.

The next couple of movies released with Kidman in the lead role did not do much to revive her career. Though the 2007 film ‘The Golden Compass’ and 2008 film ‘Australia’ earned mixed reviews, her acting was notable and earned much praise and acclaim.

Year 2009 witnessed the release of the movie ‘Nine’, wherein Kidman played a brief role. The film despite earning mixed reviews brought Kidman a couple of nominations.

Since 2010, Kidman has been seen in a number of movies such as ‘Rabbit Hole’, ‘Just Go with It’, ‘Trespass’, ‘Hemingway & Gellhorn’, ‘The Paperboy’ and ‘Stoker’. A couple of her movies which are due to release are ‘The Railway Man’, ‘Grace of Monaco’, ‘Anchorman: The Legend Continues’ and ‘Before I Go to Sleep’.

Nicole Kidman Top Movie

Lion (8.0)

Nicole-Kidman-Net-Worth-And-Biography-top-movie

The other film to score a solid 8.0 rating is the 2016 biographical drama Lion, based on the non-fiction novel A Long Way Home by Saroo Brierley.

The movie follows Saroo, who as a five-year-old, gets taken away from his home in India. Though he is adopted by a kind Australian couple, he later sets out to find the family he was born into. Though Dev Patel stars, Kidman and David Wenham act as Saroo’s adoptive parents. The performances of all the actors were widely regarded. This had Patel and Kidman getting nominations in the Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress categories at the Academy Awards.

Dogville (8.0)

The first of two Kidman films with a strong 8.0 rating is Dogville. This 2003 crime tragedy film follows a woman who, in an attempt to hide from mobsters, seeks refuge in a small Colorado mountain town in exchange for her manual labor.

The experimental stage-like style of the play in combination with an interesting script and noteworthy performances has created much buzz in the years since its release.

Moulin Rouge! (7.6)

Though Moulin Rouge! recently made itself a home on Broadway, it all began as a romantic jukebox musical drama in 2001. Starring Ewan McGregor alongside Nicole Kidman, the film tells of an English writer who becomes enchanted by the cabaret star of the Moulin Rouge in Paris. Though their romance is real, it faces more than one threat.

The film received multiple Academy Award nominations, including that of Best Actress. The over-top-style and charming leads left viewers talking.

The Others (7.6)

The-Others

Kidman found herself at the front of this gothic supernatural horror film in 2001. It tells of a mother named Grace who lives with her family on the English coast in 1945 directly following the events of World War II. While the family waits for news of what’s become of Grace’s husband and the children’s father, young Anne tells her mom that she sees ghosts. It’s not long before Grace discovers she might not be imagining things.

The spooky tone of the film combined with Kidman’s raw performance left critics impressed.

The Hours (7.5)

The-Hours

Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, and Julianne Moore teamed up for this 2002 psychological drama film about three women with lives that have been connected across decades by the Mrs. Dalloway novel. While Streep plays a modern New Yorker who plans a party for a friend and Moore plays a 1950 housewife with a child and a failing marriage, Kidman portrays author Virginia Woolf who attempts to overcome depression while writing a book.

Kidman earned herself a Best Actress Oscar at the Academy Awards for her performance, following the film’s release.

Nicole Kidman Personal Life & Legacy

Australian stage actor Marcus Graham was the first man in the life of Nicole Kidman. Though the two were in a live-in relationship, nothing formalized between them to walk up to the altar.

In the mid-1980s, she shared an on-and–off relationship with her Windrider co-star Tom Burlinson.

It was however, while working on the sets of ‘Days of Thunder’ that Kidman fell in serious relationship with co-actor Tom Cruise. The two tied the knot on Christmas Eve 1990 in Telluride, Colorado. They had two adopted children, a daughter, Isabella Jane and a son, Connor Anthony.

A decade after living together, the two separated stating irreconcilable differences as the reason behind the split-up. From 2003 to 2004, Kidman dated musician Lenny Kravitz. She even had a small fling with Robbie Williams.

In 2005, she met Keith Urban, an Australian country singer, at G’Day LA, an event honouring Australians. The two walked up to the altar on June 25, 2006 at Cardinal Cerretti Memorial Chapel in the grounds of St Patrick’s Estate, Manly in Sydney. They have been blessed with two biological daughters, Sunday Rose Kidman Urban and Faith Margaret Kidman Urban.

Favorite Quotes from Nicole Kidman

“Sometimes your mistakes are you biggest virtues. Those things that you think are the worst thing that’s happening to you can somehow turn around and be the greatest opportunity.” – Nicole Kidman 

“Have no regrets. Every relationship leads you to where you’re meant to be. Learn to be comfortable with being alone. Learn to be comfortable with saying no to people; we put everybody else before ourselves. Read great literature; don’t get all your information from TV. Define your moral code – nobody else is going to give you that. Find it yourself. Keep asking questions, keep challenging. You don’t have to conform. Rebellion creates the character. And, as my mother always said to me, “Don’t let anyone break your spirit!” – Nicole Kidman 

“Part of our job as human beings is to share our knowledge and share the things we’ve learned. So we can either save people from making the same mistakes or give them hope.” – Nicole Kidman 

“I suppose that’s what I’ve learned recently, to allow myself to be loved.” – Nicole Kidman 

“You start out with big dreams and I mean, big dreams artistically. You want to work with the greatest living directors, make a great movie. I wanted to make a great love story, I wanted to make a great epic and then you realize that the truth of it is that it’s so hard to make a great film. It’s hard to get a great role. Those big expectations change to realism pretty quickly.” – Nicole Kidman
