Nicole Kidman, 56, reveals why she doesn’t care about ageing and Hollywood’s beauty standards – as she continues to film her latest dramedy series in Sydney

Nicole Kidman recently opened up in a raw interview about her experiences navigating Hollywood as a woman in her fifties.

The Australian actress, 56, who has become one of the world’s most prolific movie stars, broke her silence during Stellar’s Something To Talk About podcast last year. 

After kicking up a stir with her controversial 2022 Vanity Fair micro skirt photoshoot, the successful producer said she’s never let what other people think hold her back.

‘I make the most random, crazy choices. I call it “teenage choices” because I don’t ever think of the consequences,’ she admitted.

‘I have to be made to think of consequences half the time. Part of my brain just doesn’t think like that.’

The Nine Perfect Strangers star went on to say she makes all her fashion choices based on how she feels rather than what others say she should wear.

‘I just try to keep in that place, because otherwise I think you get scared or worried about what people think,’ she added.

‘In terms of people’s reactions, I say don’t tell me. I don’t really want to know. It’ll stop me from doing what I want to do.’

It tells a story of intrigue about a woman who inherits a home on a mysterious island, and is being filmed in Sydney with Australian actors. 

‘Australian accents, an Australian project with Australian accents for the world. This has been a long time in the making,’ Nicole said at the SXSW Festival last year.

She went on to say she was thrilled to be working on yet another production based on a story by Liane, as they have so much in common.

‘She is the same age, she has got kids, she has gone through similar things at different times. She has become a great friend,’ the movie star said of the author.
