Nicole Kidman ACTOR

Nicole Kidman was born on June 20th, 1967 in Honolulu, Hawaii with the birth name Nicole Mary Kidman.  She was born to Australian parents, Anthony and Janelle Kidman.  Although, she was born in Hawaii and lived briefly in Washington D.C she was raised in Sidney Australia.
Initially as a young girl, Kidman had a love for dance, particularly, ballet.  As she got older she also developed an interest in acting and before completing High School at North Sydney Girls' High School , she actually dropped out to pursue a career as an actress.
At the age of sixteen she was already being cast in such films as, "Bush Christmas" (1983), "BMX Bandits" (1983) and "Vietnam" (1987), for which she won her first Australian Film Institute Award.
Now that she had gained some experience in the industry and some recognition as an actress in Australia she was able to obtain an American agent who helped her get cast in her first American film, "Dead Calm" (1989).  Soon she was becoming well received in Hollywood with roles in such films as, "Days of Thunder" (1990), "Billy Bathgate" (1991), "Far and Away" (1992), "My Life" (1993), "Batman Forever" (1995)  and "To Die For" (1995) for which up until that point in her career, had not yet been able to prove to Hollywood that she was leading lady material.  For this role, Kidman won a Golden Globe and a number of critics awards.
As her career progressed more successful film roles were added to her resume such as, "The Portrait of a Lady" (1996), "The Peacemaker" (1997), "Eyes Wide Shut" (1999), "The Others" (2001), "Moulin Rouge" (2001), "Cold Mountain" (2003), "The Interpreter" (2005), "Happy Feet" (2006) and "Australia" (2008).
Kidman has been honored in Hollywood numerous ways such as listed in People's Weekly magazines, "most Intriguing People" in 1995 and again in 1996.  Then in 1999, People's magazine chose her as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World and gave her the same honor in 1996.  In 2001 Entertainment Weekly named her Entertainer of the Year and in 2003 she was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Some of her more recent roles have been in 2009 appearing in the musical, "Nine", "The Danish Girl" set to release in 2012 as well as, "Hemingway & Gellhorn" also set to release on the television channel, HBO in 2012.  
Although she has never had any formal singing training, she has been asked to sing in a number of her films such as, "Moulin Rouge" for which her vocals were quite well received.  She even recorded a single, "Come What May" which made number 27 in the Australian charts.  She also sang in the musical, "Nine".  She has however had training as a piano player and played the piano in, "Cold Mountain" (2003).    
She has been married twice throughout her lifetime.  Her first husband was Tom Cruise whom she met on set early on in her career and together, the couple adopted two children, Isabella Jane and Connor Antony.  Sadly, this marriage ended in divorce in 2001.  She married again to country singer, Keith Urban in 2006 and they too have two children together and remain marred today.
