Regarding Kidman’s acceptance speech, Keith Urban’s lady love said that her winning is an amazing early birthday gift.
‘I want to tell all the women out there—it is not over at 40. It is not even over at 50. I’m going to take this as a birthday present—I’m about to turn 50 in two weeks, and I never thought this would be one of my best years.’
Nicole Kidman initially broke out in Hollywood in 1989 with the lead role in the Phillip Noyce-directed movie called Dead Calm which is a thriller and in which also starred Billy Zane.
The actress was in her early 20s when she starred in this film. Her first role was in an Australian TV movie called Skin Deep back in 1983.
After 34 years, her career is greater than ever before. She went from an ingenue to Tom Cruise’s wife, to life as a single woman, and now she became a mother, a wife and also a superstar.
What more could she possibly want from life? What keeps her career thriving for so many iterations?
She was once asked about her four kids, and she shared her emotions with the public. She confessed that they are her driving force in life and the maternal force of who she is is incredibly strong. It is so strong that it taps into everything that she feels and she can put it in her work as well.
