Nicole Mary Kidman was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on June 20, 1967, while her Australian parents were there on educational visas. Three years later, they returned to Australia, where Nicole was raised. Her first love was ballet, but she took up mime and drama as well. She dropped out of high school to pursue acting full-time, and broke into movies at age 16, in Bush Christmas. Her breakthrough role was in the thriller Dead Calm. In her Hollywood debut, Nicole starred as Tom Cruise’s doctor/love interest in Days of Thunder, after which the couple wed. She had leading roles in the romantic drama Far and Away, the crime comedy-drama To Die For, the superhero film Batman Forever, and (with Cruise) the erotic thriller Eyes Wide Shut. Her marriage to Cruise ended in 2001. She played a courtesan in the musical Moulin Rouge, a mail-order bride in the drama Birthday Girl, and portrayed Virginia Woolf in The Hours (Academy Award, Best Actress). Kidman continued to star in commercially successful films, including the horror-thriller The Others and the epic war drama Cold Mountain. She achieved critical acclaim for roles in independent films, including the dramas Dogville, Birth, Rabbit Hole, and the thriller The Paperboy. She played a troubled mother in the biopic Lion, and a victim of domestic abuse in the HBO series Big Little Lies. Nicole currently stars in the horror drama The Killing of a Sacred Deer.
