Nicole Kidman recalls the most challenging part about her stardom

‘I was not sure how to survive’: Nicole Kidman candidly recalls the most challenging part about her early days of Hollywood stardom

She found her feet in Hollywood with acclaimed movie roles such as Eyes Wide Shut and To Die For before bagging a coveted Oscar for The Hours in 2002.

However, Nicole Kidman, 53, has now revealed that her rapid rise to stardom wasn’t as smooth as one might have expected.

Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald, the Australian actress explained that fame was much more challenging during her single years because ‘there wasn’t a place to go and to work through it.’

Nicole recalled her sister Antonia coming to her aid following her split from actor Tom Cruise in 2001.

She told the publication: ‘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.’

Following her split from Cruise, she was briefly engaged to American musician Lenny Kravitz.

The Big Little Lies star has been happily married to country singer Keith Urban since 2006, and the pair share two daughters, Sunday, 12, and nine-year-old Faith.

Given her impressive achievements in the entertainment industry, it appears that Nicole is now happily stepping aside for her daughters to steal her thunder.

In a recent interview with News.com.au, Nicole explained that the youngsters had both bagged an extra role on the first episode of her new drama, The Undoing.

‘They’re used to being extras, but they did five days in the freezing [New York] cold, never complained, and didn’t get any special treatment.

‘And then one day they came home and said, “We got a line!”‘

Nicole will next be starring alongside Hugh Grant in the drama The Undoing, which reunites the actress with her Big Little Lies creator David E. Kelley.
