There is no one like Nicole Kidman. This Hollywood Icon & Oscar winner started off small before bursting into the legend we know her as today.
Nicole Kidman has come a long way since growing up in Sydney. The Australian actress began her career in the early 1980s and continues to be one of the biggest stars in Hollywood to this very day. But, as we all know, no one is born a legend, and every icon starts out small – in this case, they also start with massively crimped hair (it was the ’80s, after all.) From her first films in her native Australia to her movie opposite her then-husband Tom Cruise to her Academy Award-winning role as Virginia Woolfe in 2002’s The Hours, Nicole has proven she can do anything. She can act with glamour and bombast (Moulin Rouge!, Australia), deliver dramatic turns that will chill your blood (The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Dogville, her role on Big Little Lies,), or bring the warmth and cuteness (Paddington.)
From her marriage to Tom – which saw them adopt two children, son Connor and daughter Isabella – to her split and second chance of love with Keith Urban, Nicole’s personal life has changed along with her professional career. Yet, throughout all these trials and chapters of her life, she retained an elegance and grace that is distinctively hers. Need proof? Take a look back at how Nicole has transformed over the past decades.
