Kidman Receives Australia's Top Honor
Aussie beauty Nicole Kidman is awarded Australia’s top civil honor, the Companion of the Order of Australia (equivalent to an English knighthood) for her work promoting women and children’s health, and cancer research.
“It’s a pat on the back, which as a little girl is something you dream of,” Australia’s golden girl said after receiving her award.
Nicole, 39, was honored during a ceremony at Government House, Yarralumla on Friday in Canberra, Australia. Hubby Keith Urban and proud parents Janelle and Antony were present for the ceremony.
The Oscar-winning actress was supposed to be presented with this award last year but the presentation was delayed until today due to her film commitments and wedding to Keith Urban. Congrats, Nicole!
