CAPTAIN KIDMAN


SHE MAY HAVE ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST RECOGNISABLE FACES, BUT OFF CAMERA NICOLE KIDMAN HAS LONG MADE PRIVACY A PRIORITY, AND HER 46M MOTOR YACHT EXUDES HOLLYWOOD ELEGANCE WHILE AT THE SAME TIME KEEPING THE PRYING LENSES OF THE PAPARAZZI AT BAY


I


t’s easy to forget sometimes that stars of the silver screen are mere mortals too. No matter how many starring roles and awards these men and women have to their names, such fame also comes at the cost of giving up a fair amount of confidentiality. For Nicole Kidman, a woman whose 2002 coronation as People Magazine’s Most Beautiful Person in the World only further highlights her instant recognisability, this surrendering of intimacy to the press never sat comfortably with the leading lady in spite of her decades long career in front of the camera.


A self confessed shy and ‘strange’ child, Kidman first found fame in the 1989 psychological seafaring thriller Dead Calm alongside Sam Neill and Billy Zane before 1990’s Days of Thunder saw her star with bona fide Hollywood heavyweight Tom Cruise. The pair became romantically involved off-screen and quickly married – the combined aura of Cruise and Kidman


making the couple a permanent fixture in the media spotlight – and by the time they divorced 11 years later, Kidman’s status in Hollywood was as secured as her former husband’s.


“Because of all the scrutiny and because of the way in which my life was being affected at that time, the truth is that I basically just wanted to curl up in a ball and become very, very small,” Kidman, now 49, reveals. “I don’t know any other way to explain it, but I wanted to go back to the womb. My mum always said that I’m too fragile for the long haul with acting!”


Since her high-profile split from Cruise, Kidman’s career has moved yet again to new heights, with the star securing her fourth Academy Award nomination for last year’s Lion. Behind the scenes, too, Kidman has flourished, having married country singer Keith Urban in 2006.
