Nicole Kidman Speaks About How the Grief of Losing Her Father Changed Her Outlook on Life

Nicole Kidman is on the cover of Tatler‘s January 2020 issue, on newsstands December 5.

Here’s what the 52-year-old actress had to share with the mag…

On being a mother as a 20-something and then a mother again as a 40-something: “Yeah…I think it’s just a journey. And the first thing is there’s no right and wrong. There’s just different children. I once got this wonderful advice from my grandmother. She said to me, “Every child is given some adversity. Where you’re born. What you’re up against. Your parents get divorced.” There’s always going to be problems. And the greatest thing is that the love is enough. I always try to think that. The love is enough.”

On how grief has changed her outlook on life after she lost her father in 2014: “I jumped in to life. Let’s go on a plane. Let’s try things. Let’s go for it. Because who knows, right? I was never going to do theatre again. I didn’t think my heart could handle the adrenaline and the fear.”

On travelling the world for work with her husband and daughters and what this will mean for her daughters in the future: “Who knows? When they’re older, they’ll probably think, “My parents dragged me around the world. I’m never leaving this one town.”’ Kids can be quixotic. Kids can be perverse. ‘And there’s nothing you love more. When that shift happens, and you [become a parent], it’s a cataclysmic change. Everything shifts. That depth of love is unfathomable, and deeply painful, and extraordinarily joyful.”
