And to think that she became famous for having married Tom Cruise ... Well, yes, in Australia, her native country, she was already a star, but the accolade was received with that pompous wedding. And in those days as an actress she was, in short, a bunch.
Times changed for Nicole Kidman. Now, who would say, turns 40 today and is the highest paid actress in the world: last year she earned an average of 13 million euros per film. What a difference from those days in 1990 where he met Cruise in the film "Thunder days«.
After filming with her ex-husband Stanley Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shout" in 1999, I think her spike came with Danish Lars Von Trier's "Dogville." Later, he chained several hits: "Moulin Rouge", "The Others" by Alejandro Amenábar and "The Hours", where she played Virginia Wolf and got the Oscar for Best Actress. Versatile and talented, Kidman I don't know if she will be among the best actresses in the world, but she has something that sets her apart from the rest. That's for sure.
