One of the brightest Hollywood actresses – Nicole Kidman (Nicole Mary Kidman), is not only famous, but incredibly popular all over the world. How did her star journey begin?

Childhood

Nicole was born in the United States on June 20, 1967 in Honolulu, Hawaii. After her birth, her parents moved to Washington. The father began working at the National Institute of Mental Health, and four years later the family moved to Australia. The girl showed herself already at the age of four, when she took up ballet.

From that moment on, all further life belongs to art. At the age of 10, Kidman enters the School of Dramatic Arts, which leads her to the Australian Theater for Young People, and in her senior school age she studies theater at the Phillip Street Theater. Interestingly, at the same time as her, Nicole’s classmate and friend, Naomi Watts, studied there.

The beginning of the creative path

The lessons were not in vain and already at the age of 14, in 1982, Nicole made her debut, her role in the film “Christmas in the Woods” brought fame. The family film is still being shown successfully during the Christmas holidays.
The success of the young actress can be judged by how often she is invited to act in films, she is in great demand among Australian directors. Bright, attractive appearance, coupled with a modest character and high performance, make her a star, however, so far only in Australia. In just a few years, at the very beginning of her career, she already has many films and TV shows with leading roles. Here are some of them: “Primitive Country” and “Vietnam”, filmed in 1986. The film “House to the marrow”, the series “Matthew and Son”, “Winners”, “Emerald City” and others.

And in 1988, the serial film “Bangkok Hilton” was shot, which was watched not only by Australians. The role played in this film brings her, finally, world fame. The series was purchased by many countries, as well as in the USSR. A heavy, dramatic role was played absolutely authentically. This work opened the doors to Hollywood. In 1989, the main role in the thriller directed by Philip Noyce “Dead Calm” was the forerunner of a turning point in his future career and personal life.

Star Career

The film “Days of Thunder” changed not only the artistic fate, but the whole life of the actress. Tom Cruise played the lead role in the film. During filming, he simply lost his head and after a short romance, in the winter of 1990, he and Nicole got married.

1991 brings the first Golden Globe in the crime drama Billy Bathgate. Her counterpart on the stage was, already then great, Dustin Hoffman.

The 1992 adventure film (where Tom Cruise was again a partner) “Far, Far Away” was coolly received by critics and excellently by the audience. The duet of lovers in life was also reflected on the screen, which was not prevented even by a very simple, uncomplicated plot.

The next work was the 1993 thriller with Alec Baldwin in the title role Ready for Anything. The role was enthusiastically received by both critics and the audience, and Nicole becomes a star. The next drama with Michael Keaton, Another Life, also released in 1993, did not cause such a stir, but the next film, Batman Forever, was a sensation for the actress. This project has been awarded at all famous film festivals. Films follow one after another: “Portrait of a Lady”, “Peacemaker”, “Practical Magic” and, finally, “Eyes Wide Shut” by Stanley Kubrick. The film, highly anticipated by both critics and audiences, was filmed for a long time, filming was difficult and psychologically exhausting for Nicole and Tom, with whom they filmed together and played spouses with complex and destructive relationships.

The enchanting burlesque Moulin Rouge, released in 2001, showed that Kidman not only dances well (and she danced on stage from early childhood), but also sings beautifully. Quite complex tricks Nicole also performs herself, without understudies. The actress herself spoke with enthusiasm about the shooting, which was preceded by a long rehearsal period.

In the same year, the mystical thriller “Aliens” was released, with a diametrically opposite complex role. It is worth noting another difficult job in the film “Dogville” in 2003, here again, Nicole showed herself to be a brilliant professional. At the moment, she has a huge number of awards in many categories of various international competitions and festivals, 8 Golden Globe awards, 3 Oscars, and many actors guild awards.

The actress is absolutely diverse, she easily copes with the role in complex psychological films and in films for children. Films with her participation are released almost every year.
Kidman is not only a successful actress, but also a producer and singer with successful albums.

She is incredibly in demand, hardworking and still beautiful.

Private life

While living and working in Australia in the 80s, Nicole dated actor Marcus Graham until she saw Tom Cruise on the set of Days of Thunder in 1989. She, (1.80 m, tall) was taller than Cruise and was afraid that she would not be approved for the role. But Tom was already subdued by her and contributed to the actress getting this role. And in the summer they got married. At the time of the wedding, Tom was 28 and Nicole was 23. The couple was considered the most beautiful in Hollywood. The marriage was happy, but marred by the absence of children. In 1993 they adopted Isabella Jane and in 1995 Connor Anthony. Together they lived for more than 10 years.

In 2001, Cruz unexpectedly made the decision to divorce. Even Nicole herself did not receive an explanation of the reason. The reason is still unknown. The children were under joint care. Later, Tom Cruise sued custody of the children in his favor. Divorce Nicole experienced very hard. The motive for the destruction of the family could be that Cruz is an adherent of the Church of Scientology. They also said that the reason was Tom’s jealousy and a three-month pregnancy interrupted by a miscarriage during filming, but all this against the backdrop of rumors, no one can claim the true reason. Nicole Kidman herself did not comment on the events.
