Nicole Kidman has been continuously identified as one of the world’s highest-paid actresses. She has won several awards for her movies. However, she has had her downtimes, especially with the divorce from Tom Cruise in 2001. In this article, we will shine our Hollywood spotlight on the life and career of this lovely star.

Starting at a Young Age

In the Australian holiday classic Bush Christmas remake, Nicole Kidman first showed up in a film at 16. The show gave a boost to her career, but she had to slow down when her mother got breast cancer. So she took time off acting to learn massage therapy to take care of her mother.
She began gaining recognition in the 1980s, appearing in many Australian movies like the action-comedy BMX Bandits (1983), the romantic comedy Windrider, and the movie that gave her an award, Vietnam.
In 1988, Nicole earned her second Australian film Institute award after playing Emerald City’s film role. Her breakthrough film was Dead Calm, where she played the role of Rae Ingram, the wife of a naval officer menaced by a former lover, played by Billy Zane.
Nicole managed to keep the originality of her character and the character’s hate for the ex-lover. The public noticed it, and Nicole moved on to star beside her then-boyfriend and now ex-husband Tom Cruise in the film Days of Thunder.
In 1991, Nicole earned her first Golden Globe nomination for Billy Bathgate as the best-supporting actress. New York Times describes her as a “beautiful woman with a sense of humor”

She was in Batman, Aquaman, and Paddington

In the 1995 film Batman Forever, Nicole appeared as Dr. Chase Meridan, the damsel in distress, opposite Val Kilmer as the titular character. In all her movie roles, she gave the characters more meaning. She will try to go ‘under the skin’ of the character she was playing and put in transparent efforts to transform into that character.

She received the Laurence Oliver Award nomination for best actress in the movie, The blue room, which premiered in London. 

Between 2010 to 2015, she has starred in many great movies. She produced and starred in the film adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Rabbit Hole. She played the grieving mother in the film. She received nominations for the Academy Award for being so natural with it.

In 2011, she starred with Nicholas Cage in Joel Schumacher’s action-thriller Trespass. She also starred in the HBO film about the relationship between Ernest Hemingway and Martha Gelhorn and as an unstable mother in Stoker. This got quite a positive response and a Saturn award nomination for the Best Supporting actress.

In 2014, Nicole showed up in Paddington’s popular comedy as the film’s main antagonist. Which was immensely loved for its naturalness, and Nicole played quite a great villain. Before 2018, when she reflected on her acting career in a BAFTA interview, she played Aquaman’s mother in the movie Aquaman.
