Nicole Kidman Says Americans 'Need to Support' Trump

Nicole Kidman Says Americans 'Need to Support' Trump

Nicole Kidman

But do we, really? 

"Wow, so sad to hear about Nicole Kidman passing away," wrote a friend on my Facebook feed this evening, to which I immediately knew the49-year-old Lion actress had either a) actually died or b) done something terribly wrong that made falsifying her death humorous. As it turns out, Kidman has indeed "passed away" in our eyes, having made a statement that urges Americans to accept Donald Trump's looming presidency.

"He's now elected and we as a country need to support whoever is the president," Kidman said on BBC Two's Victoria Derbyshire Show. "That is what the country is based on. And however that happened, it happened, and let's go."

Kidman's vocal support of our President-Elect is loose, but it's still support, and starkly contrasts opinions by many of her Hollywood peers, leave Republican Caitlyn Jenner. During Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, Meryl Streep delivered a powerful speech against Trump, knocking holes in his bullying tactics as a means to maintain power over others. Trump later responded, by Twitter of course, calling the cinema legend "overrated."

Kidman redeemed herself during the interview by emphasizing that she's "very, very committed to women's issues," and gave a shoutout to Streep, speaking to how she paved the way for women over 40 in Hollywood. The Stepford Wives actress also urged the Australian government to legalize same-sex marriage, saying she believes in "allowing people who love each other to share their lives together and honor it."
