Nicole Kidman: 'Lion' is a 'Love Letter' to Her Adopted Kids

Nicole Kidman: 'Lion' is a 'Love Letter' to Her Adopted Kids

Nicole Kidman wears Dior Haute Couture on the cover of Town & Country magazine’s December 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 49-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her personal connection to her new film Lion: “I can see now, for Lion, that it was important to me because I’m a mother with adopted children. This movie is a love letter to my children. [My character] Sue is deeply maternal and full of unconditional love, which is beautiful. That’s why I wanted to do it. I relate to that. I feel that for my own children who are adopted. It’s not about anything else other than ‘I wanted you.’ It’s that deep and personal, and whatever your journey is, I’m here to love and support you. That’s what I connected to.”

On her pattern in picking projects: “I call myself the wild card because I have no idea what it is. I’m so spontaneous—sometimes to my detriment and sometimes my benefit—but it’s how I’ve always been. My husband [Keith Urban] never knows what I’m going to choose. And then he’ll ask me to explain why and I can’t!”

On her desire to be thrilled, both in projects and in life: “The mistakes I’ve made have always involved people not matching the extreme artistic desire—when I’ve tried to be a bit more homogenized, or tried not to be as bold. When I’ve been guided into places that don’t suit what I am intrinsically—that’s when it doesn’t work out…I’ve been the same way since I was 14. I don’t conform. That’s just my nature.”

    Beautiful what she said in ref to this movie and her adopted kids. Hope Nicole and all of her kids spend more time together.

  • Just Saying

    It’s a shame that her adopted kids hate her because of that scientology shit, she seems to love them very much still.

    She didn’t fight for them in the first place. When the marriage ended she willingly left their lives at the cult’s demand. A mother will always fight for her children. It’s primal nature. Even an adoptive mother – IF she feels they are really her children. I will never respect this woman for abandoning her children to Tom and Scientology. Never. She did it to save her own ass and her own career.
