Nicole Kidman doesn’t want to know the results of a Google search about herself!
In a new interview with Variety, the 49-year-old actress discussed her mixed feelings about technology.
Nicole revealed that she doesn’t ever search her name but she does use Google Earth, much like the characters in her upcoming film Lion.
“I love where technology is taking us, but you need a balance. I love nature, and I love the slow life as well. The instant gratification of technology can mean you’re missing out on life,” she explained.
“I was living out of suitcases and he was like, ‘I can give you a home babe’. And I was like, ‘you give me a home, and I will move to Nashville,’” the 49-year-old actress said in an interview with Vogue Australia.
“Keith and I always say that if we have each other, we’ve got home,” Nicole added (via The Daily Telegraph). “Obviously my humour and my essence is Australian, that just will never go. Having lived in Nashville, I have a strong sense of the (American) south in me — actually and our children are being raised that way where they have elements of American and then they have elements of Australian and then they sort of … international.”
Pictured inside: Nicole and her Lion co-stars Rooney Mara, Dev Patel, and Sunny Pawar, director Garth Davis, and writer Luke Davies at a screening of the film on Friday night (December 9) at the Harmony Gold Theatre in Los Angeles.
Here’s what the cast had to share with the mag:
Harvey Weinstein on Rooney’s dislike of press tours: “You work with Rooney on a movie, and she’ll sweep the set. She’ll do anything. But if I ask her to do ‘Jimmy Fallon,’ she’ll hold my family hostage.”
Dev, on life after Slumdog Millionaire: “It’s a blessing and a curse, that film, for me. It put me on the map and did great things, but you’re fighting against it. To lots of people, I’m the dude from ‘Slumdog.’ You have to go out there and earn your stripes and prove more than that.”
Nicole, on the movie’s adoption storyline: “It’s about saying, ‘You and I were meant for each other, however we came together — whether it’s through birth, whether it’s through adoption — I’m your mother.
“It’s a choice and we’re allowed to have those choices, and that’s a very important conversation for the next generation, for women and little girls,” Nicole expressed (via THR). “There’s an undoubtedly regressive current towards women and minorities going in a negative direction and then there’s a positive — let’s call it a jet stream — of fast-moving, hot water that we need to fuel moving in the loving direction towards all people. This is a loving gesture coming from Peter from seeing women as real people.”
Last night (November 29), Nicole and Helen put on their best to attend the 2017 Pirelli Calendar Gran Gala alongside Charlotte Rampling, Uma Thurman, Helen‘s hubby Taylor Hackford and Peter Lindberg himself at La Cite Du Cinema in Saint-Denis in Paris, France.
“In a way our eyes need to become readjusted, because we’re so used to these spectacularly enhanced digital images and here we’re saying, ‘No let’s go back to a portrait of humanity,” Helen added. “It undoubtedly represents a culture shift.”
2017 Pirelli Calendar Unveiled

Nicole Kidman, Uma Thurman and Helen Mirren get together for a photograph while attending the 2017 Pirelli Calendar Launch held at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild on Tuesday (November 29) in Paris, France.
The three ladies, all dressed in black, were joined at the event by chief executive officer of Pirelli, Marco Tronchetti-Provera, and photographer Peter Lindberg, the only photographer to have been asked to produce the Pirelli Calendar for the third time.
“In a time when women are represented in the media and everywhere else, as ambassadors of perfection and youth, I thought it was important to remind everyone that there is a different beauty, more real and truthful and not manipulated by commercial or any other interests, a beauty which speaks about individuality, courage to be yourself and your own private sensibility…” Peter said. “My aim was to portray women in a different way, and I did it by calling in actresses who’ve played an important role in my life, getting as close as possible to them to take my photos. As an artist, I feel I’m responsible for freeing women from the idea of eternal youth and perfection. The ideal of perfect beauty promoted by society is something that simply can’t be attained.”
