I’m an evil villain with a hint of fun. I hope people go out to see it because it’s adorable. The book series has been a massive hit in the UK and Australia, that’s where the book is really famous. In terms of here in America, a few people know, but we’re trying to educate people because he’s really a sweet bear.

They say your art gets affected when you have a family, but I’d much rather have a family. Having experienced the greatest awards and accolades, the idea of being alone with that doesn’t work for me. It may for somebody else, but it’s not for me.

Kidman plays Evie Stoker in this mystery thriller directed by Chan-Wook Park.  Stoker’s husband is killed and his brother Charlie comes to live in the Stoker home.  Charlie pays Evie inappropriate amounts of attention, and she welcomes it.  But Charlie is really playing her to get close to her daughter India. Also starring Matthew Goode and Mia Wasikowska.

I loved the dinner scenes.  I loved the scenes around the table because I just found them…there’s humor in them as well.  I actually don’t think that Evie’s evil. I felt like she’s misunderstood.  I felt like she’s just starved for love and she’s got a child that she doesn’t connect with.

The Hours

Film Appearance

Kidman plays Virginia Woolf in this drama directed by Stephen Daldry. Woolf’s novel Mrs. Dalloway is the jumping off point to chronicle a day in the life of three women in three separate decades, all of whom, in one way or another, encounter suicide. Co-starring Meryl Streep and Julianne Moore.

I think a character can sometimes come into your life because she’s meant to be there. The dead can give us gifts. And Virginia Woolf gave me the gift of being able to play her at a time when I was depressed and in an emotional struggle. I used her knowledge. In the same way that life feeds art, art feeds life.

Nicole Kidman born in Honolulu, Hawaii


ead7544166b8a2378f9a5227dfd25cc8Nicole Kidman is born in Honolulu, Hawaii to nursing instructor Janelle Ann and biochemist, clinical psychologist David Kidman. Her parents are of Australian descent. She has a younger sister named Antonia. She attends Lane Cove Public School in Sydney.

I remember Halloweening when I was about three, with my parents when we lived in Washington, D.C. And then I remember eating snow when I was about three as well — wanting to taste it and being told I wasn’t allowed to but still secretly doing it. Isn’t that crazy? And I have a vivid memory of both of those things.
