Nicole Kidman says it’s time for Americans to get behind President-elect Donald Trump.

The “Lion” star, who has dual citizenship in Australia and the U.S., told BBC 2’s Victoria Derbyshire that she’s normally reluctant to talk about politics but thinks Americans should accept Mr. Trump as their new president and support him.

“I just say he’s now elected and we as a country need to support who’s ever the president because that’s what the country’s based on,” Mrs. Kidman said.

“Whatever, however that happened, he’s there and let’s go,” she added.

Mrs. Kidman, a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, said she’s more concerned about issues that are important to her.
“I’m always reticent to start commenting politically. I’ve never done it in terms of America or Australia. I’m issue-based,” she said.

“I’m very, very committed to women’s issues in terms of I do a lot of fundraising for U.N. Women and I do a lot of traveling for them,” she said. “I also do an enormous amount of fundraising for breast and ovarian cancer, because that’s something that’s affected my family deeply. So they’re my issues that I’m very attached to.”

The Hawaii-born actress lives in Nashville with husband Keith Urban and their two children. In November, she posted a photo on Instagram of her and her husband proudly showing off their “I Voted” stickers.

Her comments about Mr. Trump begin at the 13:20 mark.

Take two megawatt executive producers, Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman. Add a pair of Hollywood’s most zeitgeisty twentysomethings, Shailene Woodley and Zoë Kravitz. Throw in a blockbuster novel about a group of upper-middle-class mothers of kindergartners roiled by sexual violence, class issues, ageism, and…murder! (That’d be Liane Moriarty’s 2014 Big Little Lies.) The result is an HBO miniseries that, even in this big-budget, high-minded small-screen era, we’ve never seen before: a seven-part thriller that looks like a movie, feels like a movie—and packs enough woman power to populate the Oscars’ front row—but grips like only episodic TV can.

On shooting sex scenes in Big Little Lies:
So many of the bruises you see on me aren’t fake. I had to do a shower scene where you would see a lot of them, and I asked them not to put makeup on me. It needed to be pretty raw and out there. There’s certain choreography that you need for a scene like that, so that you don’t actually get your cheekbone shattered, but a lot of the time, they’d say, ‘Oh, you can put some pads in your back,’ and I would say no, because you might be able to see them. I also felt that the nudity was a part of it. It wasn’t about exploitation. It really feeds into their relationship. You really get their sexuality through that.

On her costar Shailene Woodley:
She’s politically engaged, which is surprising for someone her age and in her career. She’s very, very responsible. She’s good at keeping her boundaries and standing up for herself. If she doesn’t believe in something, she says so. I could probably have learned from that at her age. I don’t think I stood up for myself in the same way she does. Reese and I have both said it: It’s a whole different world now. When we were growing up, we were far more protected, but we weren’t as empowered. We weren’t connected through knowledge, which is what social media gives you.

Nicole was honored last night at the AACTA International Awards. She walked the red carpet with Keith and looked gorgeous in a black gown by Rochas from their Spring 2017 line.

During her acceptance speech for best supporting actress she recognized her husband Keith Urban, “And to the most beautiful man I’ve ever met, Keith Lionel Urban. He’s got a gypsy heart, and travels the world where I go. ‘We’re going to Tasmania to make a film!’ And he’s like, ‘OK…’”

Entertainment Weekly gives us a look at the new HBO series Big Little Lies starring Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, & Shailene Woodley.

It began with a manuscript. In 2014, a friend slipped Reese Witherspoon an early galley of Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies. The Australian author has a knack for spinning a compelling tale — her previous book, The Husband’s Secret, had hit No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list a year earlier — and this one was no exception.

“Liane’s writing is so enthralling, I was hanging on every word. I read it in one night,” says Witherspoon of the story of a wealthy seaside enclave where not everything is as perfect as it seems and the combined community secrets lead to a mysterious murder.

Her producing partner, Bruna Papandrea, called Nicole Kidman — a longtime friend since the women were teenagers — and said simply: “I’ve found the thing for us all to do together.” Kidman (who also read the book in a single sitting) happened to be leaving the next day for Australia, and while there she met Moriarty for coffee. “I said to her, ‘If you give us the rights to the book, we can get it made,’” says Kidman.

Within 18 months, a staggering number of A-listers were heading into production. Witherspoon and Kidman were joined by Shailene Woodley in the lead roles, with Laura Dern, Zoë Kravitz, Alexander Skarsgård, and Adam Scott also in the cast. David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal) signed on as an executive producer and wrote all seven episodes. Jean-Marc Vallée — fresh off his Oscar-nominated film Wild — agreed to direct every installment, too. (He’d been planning to direct only the pilot but had a hard time saying no to his Wild leading lady. “This is all Reese’s fault,” he says with a laugh. “I was about to take a vacation, and I was so tired. But then I read it, and I couldn’t abandon it after I started.”)

All that talent shows: The series has its fair share of humor and dark drama — and then even darker drama — yet the actresses never miss a step. “I sometimes felt like I was watching a class in acting,” says Witherspoon of her costars.

Big Little Lies premieres on Feb. 19 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.

W Magazine highlighted some of the best performances of the year in their new issue and one of the covers featured Nicole & actor Mahershala Ali.


What was your favorite birthday?
When I turned 40, my husband, Keith [Urban], drove me up to the top of this small hill in Australia and sat me down. He had put together this huge fireworks display. It was just for the two of us! It was sexy.

What is your pet peeve?
When people say they will do something and they don’t. And I know it’s terribly demanding, but I don’t like it when my husband doesn’t answer his phone. I have to keep calling and calling, and I get anxious. Does that make me high-maintenance?

What movie has made you cry?
Last year I saw Room, and I was absolutely devastated by it. I’m raw as I get older. I have to be careful what I let in.

Where was your first kiss?
This is crazy: We were playing hooky from school. I had my first kiss while watching The Shining. Is that not weird? And we did a few things other than kiss too! I didn’t see a lot of the movie.

This week, Nicole Kidman returned to the Palm Springs International Film Festival for the first time since her father’s death.

“Last time I was here, I was making a lot of movies and I was single,” Kidman told ET, acknowledging that it’s been 12 years since she walked the PSIFF red carpet. “I was here with my dad last time, and I have photos walking up the red carpet with my dad, holding his hand.”

Dr. Antony Kidman — a clinical psychologist at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia — died unexpectedly in September 2014 after he fell while on vacation in Singapore.

ET was with the Oscar winner and her father when they attended the PSIFF in 2005. That year, Nicole was presented with the organization’s highest honor, the Chairman’s Award, and Antony was clearly pleased with his daughter’s accomplishments.

“I’m very proud,” he told ET, adding that the distinction was “well deserved.”

“Unbelievable that was 12 years ago,” Nicole said after watching ET’s flashback footage. “But I’ve also found love and I have a family and grown a family. I have four children now. Amazing things have happened to me in the past 12 years.”

The 49-year-old actress married her current husband, Keith Urban, in 2006. The couple are parents to 8-year-old daughter Sunday and 6-year-old daughter Faith, but Nicole also has a daughter (Isabella, 24) and an adopted son (Connor, 21) from her previous marriage to Tom Cruise.

Kidman credited her family, especially Urban, with helping her through the grieving process after her father’s death.

“I had a husband that came right back,” she told CBS last month. “I called him screaming and crying. And he was about to go onstage. And he walked offstage and he got on a plane — he had just gotten there… He literally picked me up and pretty much carried me through the next two weeks.”

“I had my children going, ‘It’s gonna be all right, Momma,'” Kidman added.

Kidman also told ET that losing her father gave her a clearer perspective on her priorities.

“I reevaluated what I wanted out of life, and I got a real life, if that makes sense,” she said.

On Monday, Kidman’s Lion co-star, Dev Patel, presented her with the International Star Award.

The Big Little Lies actress collected her prize after ringing in the New Year onstage with her husband on Saturday.

“He was like, ‘Come on, baby. I want you to come out and dance around or sing with me,'” Kidman said of their Nashville performance. “On the spur of the moment I was like, ‘All right! I’ll go!’ So I sort of ran out onstage dancing around.”

Kidman already has plenty to dance about in 2017. Her Lion performance has garnered critical acclaim and plenty of awards show attention.

In the film, she plays Sue Brierley, a woman who — along with her husband, John Brierley (David Wenham) — adopts a young boy lost in Calcutta named Saroo (Patel). When Saroo grows up, he begins a search to find the family he disappeared from as a child.

As an adoptive mother, the story hit close to home.

“I think I really connect with Sue,” Kidman told ET. “When particular roles come along at particular times and they align directly with your own personal feelings then it’s sort of like you just give over to it. It’s almost like you just step out of the way and let everything else do the work.”
