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.
