Nicole Kidman on Living Her Life: ‘Acting is a Job For Me’
Nicole Kidman is going through a very serious comeback after wowing audiences in Big Little Lies, and in a new cover story for In Style, the actress opens up about her career and balancing life.
“As much as it looks really glitzy, acting is a job for me. I’m not a celebrity who’s going to go out just because. That’s not my nature,” she said. “On Big Little Lies I was completely disturbed by it. It penetrated. Everything does in different ways, but that’s the place you exist in when you work creatively. There’s no other option. It’s a pull. I would have to find somewhere else to place all that energy otherwise… I believe in giving it everything you’ve got, doing your best so you don’t walk around going, ‘Gee, I wish I’d just committed to that a little bit more.’ You’re not always going to nail it.”
When it came to her fashion choices: “There are dreams attached to fashion,” she said. “When it’s presented in a way where you go [gasp], it just makes you feel good. It allows me to express what I’m feeling, as in, I want to wear that because that’s actually my rebellion right now. Or that’s my way of fitting in.Or it’s my way of saying no. Or it’s my way of saying I’m different. I grew up with a grandmother and a mother who loved clothes.”
