Saint Nic Gives 'Compass' To Kids

Saint Nic Gives 'Compass' To Kids

Nicole Kidman (in Prada) brings smiles to an audience of sick children, their families and the staff of Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick as she hosts a special screening of The Golden Compass on Tuesday.

“This is a small gesture and I would just like to say I wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year,” she said. “I play a villain in this film, so to all the little kids – don’t stay.”

“You put a big smile on all our faces and make us feel happy,” said 7-year-old cancer patient Cooper Smeaton. “Thank you for everything you do for us, we love you.”

“We’re deeply grateful to Nicole for her constant generosity,” foundation CEO Elizabeth Crundall said. “For many of the children attending this screening it will be a rare and welcome break from fighting a serious illness in hospital. Nicole‘s ongoing support, kindness and dedication is extraordinary.”

The screening was held at Hoyts Fox Studios in the Entertainment Quarter of Sydney, Australia.

Peep more pictures of Saint Nic inside the hospital, touching the hearts of some very special kids at Live News.

  • SJ

    11- I am truly disgusted.

    Nicole is ten times the better person other Hollywood actresses claim to be.

    In the UK, she even asked someone for some big umbrellas to cover the paparazzi!

  • Helena

    #11 you’re pathetic.
    #12, even I can agree that she’s ruined her face, but what does that have to do with the topic? Grow up.

  • poodle puddle

    its nice to see her beginning to crack that ice queen veneer. if only she never wore that silver surfer outfit last week.

  • Ha!

    She looks gorgeous! it’s nice that she chose a cause that’s helps her native country. She seems to be very proud of where she’s from.

  • natalie

    I’d like to know why jared isn’t showing the “other” pictures from the event. Guess who chose to wear another see-through black dress again with no slip, and yes, you can see another black thong and bare cheeks. Boy, is she class act or what?

  • Ha!


  • natalie

    Ha – Nicole!

  • JoAnn

    She’s a beautiful person inside and out!

    #11 – Urban Myths: you’re one sick puppy! You belong in an asylum.

  • Flaming

    ok, if she’s not a famewhore of the highest degree, then why not do this without the paps…….it’s possible you know

  • nicole fan

    Urban Myths: you’re disgusting. Enough said.

  • Vania

    get a life!!

    and yes, Nic is so kind. And she’s the ambassador of Sydney Children’s Hospital for more than 6 years.

  • betty

  • natalie

    I’m not lesbian, but I wouldn’t put it pass the one you worship!

  • carl

    she is stunning in that little black dress!love her hair this way!
    thanks Nicole for supporting this beautiful but sad cause!

  • Ha!

    Natalie, you have some problems.

  • Jespan

    oh that’s the first time i’m reading comments from this woman??? call Natalie.You’re so rude and envy darling.get a life dear, maybe dpoing something great as this Nicole is doing! i’m sorry for you!

    Thank’s Nicole Kidman for being such a great person!

  • Louise

    Love her dress!lovely!and her hair like that makes her look younger!
    Love when celebrities support this causes!

  • http://jj blip

    GREAT. She’s looking good:)

  • Joaquim

    Nicole is my favorite celebrity all over the world. I love her as an actress but also as a person. I admire her for being such a kind and sweet you Nic!

  • natalie

    I love how classy her fans are just like her!

  • ram

    11 is one of Keith Urban’s rejected or used up groupie . . . he he he he

  • Ha!

    You do all realize that the purpose of having the media there (much different than the paparrazi, btw) is to give exposure to the cause in hopes that others will follow suit and do something to help. Give me a break, people. Nicole Kidman a publicity whore? I guess you know nothing about her.

  • Deb

    natalie..this other pic??? Classy Nic..Classy

    Nice of you to share your backside ,shining thru your dress, with the world AGAIN!!!

  • Kingson

    Finally Beautiful!i was missing the old stunning Nicole as this one.
    her dress could be in other color, but that’s fine.i love her hair this way, much better!

  • Louise

    Thanks Natalie!you’re very classic and kind too….

  • Ha!

    Natalie, why are you searching for pictures of Nicole just to post them here? What you posted under the name “Deb” (clever, by the way) in no way shows what you’re intending it to show. Have you ever been photographed in front of dozens and dozens flashing lightbulbs? There’s really no way to know what will show and what won’t. It’s a pretty safe bet that she thought this would be something that would give coverage.

    BTW, how old are you? 80? Who wears slips anymore?

  • silvia

    #37 – Deb, sorry to disappoint you, but that picture had been photoshopped to make the dress appeared see-through. Whoever tampered with the picture did not do a good job as the “cheeks” appeared in the wrong spots. That’s not how her backside looks.

  • Ha!

    In a world with Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, THIS is what you’re complaining about?

  • Louise

    well said silvia.but don’t loose time with Natalie and fellows they are just annoying and evil!i would say Natalie would make better job as Nicole in GC!lol

  • Catherine

    Beautiful! she is gorgeous!i miss her fashion Hits already!
    i don’t bother with Natalie, she is so predictable than i don’t need to read her comments!Natalie not even in Christmas time dear…

  • natalie

    #40 – Ha! – get a life. I have one – I don’t make up more than one screen name. After the ARIAs, you would think she wouldn’t leave home without a slip – she was so embarrassed then, but look at the press it got her!

  • silvia

    Ha! (#36) – you are absolutely right. Part of being an Ambassador for the Sydney Children’s Hospital is to draw attention to the cause.

    And this is a cause that Nicole cares deeply about. I understand that she visits the kids often when she’s back in Sydney. The hospital staff is very grateful for her involvement.

  • Jenix

    it’s Christmas time guys, just stop to be rude with each other please!

    let’s talk about interesting things as: Nicole is beautiful here, she is giving her face to noble causes, these kids had a great time….and so on…

  • Lara

    Great cause Nicole. Thanks for helping these kids, they deserve more than anyone!

  • Deb

    Sorry to disappoint you.. I am not

    I use to like Nikkers style.. Not so much anymore! She has been making bad choices in clothes and movies lately!

    If she is truly doing this for the right reason..good on her. But I somehow doubt it. But good for the kids who wanted to meet her and got that opportunity.

  • Carl

    Good cause to support.all celebrities should do the same and follow the steps of Miss Jolie and Miss Kidman.
