Though Nicole Kidman grew up in Australia, she certainly has ties to the US. Being born in Hawaii and now residing in Nashville with husband Keith Urban and their two children, she feels invested in the US election.
Kidman recently revealed her thoughts about the election of Donald Trump as president in a recent interview at the UK premiere of her new movie Lion.
“[Trump is] now elected and we, as a country, need to support whoever is the president,” she said. “That is what the country is based on. And however that happened, it happened, and let’s go.”
Closer to home, she also spoke out about marriage equality (or the lack thereof) in Australia.
“I believe in it,” she said. “I believe in allowing people who love each other to share their lives together and honour it.”
She also thinks there is a lot of validity when “people love each other and want that to be acknowledged legally—because that’s protection, as well as saying you are committed. And commitment is a wonderful thing.”
Speaking of commitment, she still wants to grow her family with Keith Urban, and is hoping that age won't stop her.
“I still have the faintest hope that something may happen to me this year," she told The Mail on Sunday’s Event magazine.
“Keith and I would love to have more babies. My grandmother gave birth to my mother at 49. I would be beyond happy and just welcome it with open arms.”
She also added that, “You go through heartbreak again and again and then you start to tell yourself it might never happen. I honestly never believed I would actually give birth to a child, then at 41 I became a mother."
