Nicole Kidman is a renowned Australian actress known for her range and mesmerizing on-screen talent. She’s received a long list of honors, including an Academy Award, and her contributions to the Hollywood and international cinema industries have endured. In addition, Kidman is praised for her humanitarian work and advocacy projects. Due to her dislike of his frequent outbreaks of rage, Nicole Kidman kept a certain distance from Harvey Weinstein during her cooperation on his films.

Nicole Kidman Maintained Her Distance From Harvey Weinstein

Nicole Kidman, who collaborated with Harvey Weinstein on films such as The Hours, Cold Mountain, and Lion, maintains that she had limited awareness of the misconduct allegations until they surfaced publicly last year. However, she expressed a strong desire to minimize her interactions with the producer due to his stringent control over her publicity commitments.

Kidman told Variety (via Stuff):

“He would get angry. My recollection of Harvey was never anything other than, ‘Nicole, do this’. I purposely kept my distance.”

Following the revelation of the allegations against Harvey, Nicole extended her support to those who had come forward as his alleged victims.

“As I’ve said in the past, I support and appreciate all women, especially those who speak up against any abuse or misuse of power, whether it is sexual harassment in the workplace or domestic violence. We have to stop this habit. She also contributed backup vocals to her husband’s song Female, which was written by Ross Copperman, Shane McAnally, and Nicolle Galyon and was inspired by the Weinstein affair.

Nicole Kidman Married Tom Cruise For Protection In Hollywood


Almost never does Nicole Kidman discuss her connection with Tom Cruise. After meeting while working on the Days of Thunder set in late 1989, they got married in 1990 and stayed together until 2001. At the start of their relationship, Kidman was a promising young actress making her Hollywood debut with Days of Thunder, while Cruise was already a well-known and bankable celebrity.
However, in an article for The Cut, the actress provides a glimpse into that chapter of her life, sharing that her association with a prominent movie star had an unforeseen consequence.

Kidmand told The Cut:

“I got married very young, but it definitely wasn’t power for me — it was protection. I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed. I would work, but I was still very much cocooned. So when I came out of it at 32, 33, it’s almost like I had to grow up.” Tom Cruise’s influence in the industry seemingly shielded her from experiencing sexual harassment. Nicole Kidman is currently married to Keith Urban.
