"[Kidman and Urban's] house is not on fire. It is under threat, so they are keeping a close eye on it," the source confirmed.
The news comes one day after Kidman announced that she, along with her husband, would be donating $500,000, with a callout to each state's Rural Fire Service. The couple aren’t the only high-profile celebrities using their platform to raise awareness of the devastating conditions. P!nk also pledged $500,000 and Australian comedian Celeste Barber has raised over $40 million through her extraordinary Facebook fundraiser.
The effects of the Australian bushfires have been so far-reaching that many celebrities at this year’s Golden Globes used the internationally televised event to raise awareness. In his absence, Russell Crowe asked Jennifer Aniston to deliver his acceptance speech on his behalf, stating, “Make no mistake, the tragedy unfolding in Australia is climate change based."
Ellen DeGeneres also used her acceptance speech for her Carol Burnett Award to express her condolences to the many animals who have lost their lives. “My heart goes out to everyone in Australia, for all the animals you’ve lost,” she told the crowd.
There are still 136 fires burning across NSW after a horrendous weekend of raging bushfires.
