Nicole Kidman can easily be considered one of the most successful actresses in Hollywood, acting in movies like Eyes Wide Shut which was the last film of the pioneer, Stanley Kubrick, The Hours which won her an Oscar for Best Actress and the extravagant Moulin Rouge! to name a few, but Nicole revealed that success for her also came with its challenges.
Nicole Kidman talked about her inner-insecurities in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, she opened up about the regrets she has over the decisions she made in her past and how they are affecting her in the present. “Do I wish that I hadn’t screwed up my hair by straightening it all the time? Sure,” said Nicole Kidman, about her curly hair which unfortunately she has damaged from continuously styling it straight. “I’ve had skin cancer; do I wish I’d been more careful with the sun? Yes, to all those things. But am I grateful to be around? Oh, yeah. And am I willing to share my knowledge, what I’ve learnt along the way? Absolutely.”
The 53-year-old Nicole who has been happily married to Aussie singer, Keith Urban since 2006, talked about the after-effects of ending her previous marriage with Hollywood’s superstar Tom Cruise in 2001 with whom she shares two adopted kids.
“When I was alone, when I was single, I think [fame] was much harder because there wasn’t a shield. There wasn’t a place to go and to work through it, with a partner. I was lucky because my sister would come. I remember her flying to Cannes [in 2001] because it’s frightening walking up that red carpet with all that scrutiny, feeling very insecure and not quite sure where to go or how to survive.”
The actress is now starring alongside Hugh Grant in a drama mini-series called the Undoing, where she plays the role of a therapist living the dream life with her on-screen husband (Hugh), but things go south as they get involved in a brutal crime. The Undoing has premiered its first episode today on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV and the mini-series has been executively produced by Nicole Kidman along with her David E. Kelley.
