Nicole Kidman's quotes

  • [on husband Tom Cruise] I wouldn't want to be married to me, but luckily he does.
  • [8/01, commenting on her break-up with Tom Cruise] Now I can wear heels.
  • It's so bizarre, I'm not scared of snakes or spiders. But I'm scared of butterflies. There is something eerie about them. Something weird!
  • [on winning the Academy Award for The Hours (2002)] And I am standing in front of my mother, and my whole life I have wanted to make my mother proud. And now I'm going to make my daughter proud.
  • I think it's important that we don't all have to hold our heads high all the time saying everything's fine.
  • These different people that I play become the loves of my life.
  • The split [from Tom Cruise] left me very fragile but I'd love to marry again.
  • I would love to have boobs and a butt like Jennifer Lopez but I'm not having surgery so there it is.
  • [on receiving her star on the Walk of Fame] I've never been so excited to have people walk all over me for the rest of my life.
  • You want to take some responsibility in your choices so that it sets the groundwork for that next generation of actresses - so for me working with Lars von Trier, I would hope that says to another generation: "go and seek out those directors, it's ok"
  • I have a boy's body. I would prefer to have more curves because I think that's more beautiful. I would much rather have J. Lo's [Jennifer Lopez] body than mine.
  • [on Cold Mountain (2003), The Human Stain (2003) and Dogville (2003) being released within months of each other] It's weird because they're all coming out at once. But I made them over 2½ years.
  • [on the troubled The Stepford Wives (2004)] It's a comedy. We hope.
  • Even from a very early age I knew I didn't want to miss out on anything life had to offer just because it might be considered dangerous.
  • [on Birth (2004)] This is a film about love. What is a great love? Is there a love of our life? Do you ever recover from the loss of somebody that was so important to you?
  • I think someone said my career defies all logic [laughs]. Because I choose the sort of strange little films, and somehow they're the things that make my career.
  • So if you talk about a box-office career, then I'm a disaster. But somehow, you know, I still manage to find my way to work.
  • I think actors are getting so much more power these days, but I'm not. I stay very much away from the decisions, the way in which things are orchestrated, what's been changed. I just try to stay completely in the role as the actor and as the character.
  • I'm at a time of my life now where, for me to want to go back and work, it'd have to be something that I really feel passionately about.
  • Regrets are ridiculous, so I don't regret, no.
  • [talking about her character from Batman Forever (1995)] Chase is attracted to the darker side of life. Batman is very appealing to her.
  • To be an actor you have to have a certain amount of madness in you. That's why, when people meet you and you seem very together, they are quite surprised--they don't see you behind closed doors.
  • [speaking of her father Antony Kidman] He's a great father, I can call him at three in the morning and he's there for me.
  • By the time I was a teenager, I had developed skills as a writer, and my father encouraged me to think about a career in journalism. I began keeping a diary, which I maintain to this day. I used to fill whole notebooks with my writings.
  • It was very natural for me to want to disappear into dark theater, I am really very shy. That is something that people never seem to fully grasp because, when you are an actor, you are meant to be an exhibitionist.
  • It's a very brave thing to fall in love. You have to be willing to trust somebody else with your whole being, and that's very difficult, really difficult and very brave.
  • [about her first role at the age of five] I was one of those terrible kids who said everyone's lines.
  • Since I have fair skin, I have to stay out of the sun. I can't stand the sun. I dyed my hair red for a while during the 1990s but I'm actually a natural blonde.
  • I'm very close to my sister, Antonia [Antonia Kidman]. Every day we swim together. I love my sister.
  • I'd like to be wise. You have to go through a lot to get there, but I'm willing to go through a lot.
  • What's the point of doing something good if nobody's watching?
  • Even from a very early age, I knew I didn't want to miss out on anything life had to offer just because it might be considered dangerous.
  • I believe that as much as you take, you have to give back. It's important not to focus on yourself too much.
  • I love acting but I don't like all of the other stuff associated with it. The interest in celebrities, the press, the Internet, when your identity becomes mixed up in the way people are perceiving you.
  • I have a little bit of a belly, a tiny bit of pooch. It's the one thing I don't want to lose. I just like having some softness. If I lose that, then Tom [husband Tom Cruise] might leave me.
  • I never knew I'd be in a musical, let alone win an award for one.
  • There's no drugs, no Tom [Tom Cruise] in a dress, no psychiatrists.
  • Having gone through all of this, I feel in some ways calmer now. It's strange, but sad. I think I'll always be sad.
  • I love acting, but it's much more fun taking the kids to the zoo.
  • [on her split with Tom Cruise] My life collapsed. People ran from me because suddenly it was, "Oh my God! It's over for her now!"
  • I love working with people who are inspired and obsessive.
  • You don't have to be naked to be sexy.
  • I'm a person that carries everything that happened to me in my past, with me into the future. I refuse to let it make me bitter. I still completely believe in love and I remain open to anything that will happen to me.
  • If I packaged toothpaste and told you you were gonna get half the toothpaste in the tube, you probably wouldn't buy it.
  • It would be far easier to go, "Oh, I wish I loved women," but I don't. I love the way a man thinks. I love the way a man smells. I love the way men look. And I'm hooked on the male physique - hooked on it.
  • You're either going to walk through life and experience it fully or you're going to be a voyeur. And I'm not a voyeur.
  • [on music] I'm so eclectic and I use it in my work all the time. What I used a lot with Lee on The Paperboy (2012) was Al Green. Lee has never listened to anything past 1970!
  • I know the feeling of polarizing films, that make people angry and uncomfortable and I'm very comfortable with that.
  • [on Birth (2004)] It created a lot of controversy because of a bathtub scene [with me] and a 10-year-old boy. But I never saw the film that way. It's fascinating when choose roles how you perceive them and how they're perceived on the outside.
  • I'll never forget sort of "DJ-ing" after [the Cannes screening of] Moulin Rouge! (2001). I think there is a photo of me with headphones on, it was with Fatboy Slim and the place was going crazy. I hold that dear to my heart.
  • [on not being Oscar-nominated for To Die For (1995)] I got a telegram from Sean Penn for that, and it said "You were robbed". That was all he sent me. And it was as good as an Academy Award nomination.
  • [on The Golden Compass (2007)]: I love that it's a little girl who's the protagonist, the hero of the piece, and also that it is about friendship, loyalty and honesty.
  • [on Australia (2008)]: It was the best experience I've ever had working on a film.
  • [on Charlize Theron] I love that we're both so tall.
  • [on acting] It's the desire to study the human condition, the desire for collaboration, to learn and absorb, and to lead a well-examined life.
  • I work well with people who are extreme.
  • [on Lars von Trier] He does things cinematically that nobody else does. And whether you love him or hate him, the filmmaking is incredibly strong.
  • [on choosing Aaron Eckhart]: I've known Aaron for a long time and he has a side of him which is very raw and emotional, which he doesn't show on screen very often.
  • Snuggling is the secret to happiness.
  • [on producing] It's allowed me to shape my career in terms of being able to find things that I may not get offered, that I wouldn't get the opportunity for. (February 2017).
  • [on her West End stage play "Photograph 51"] It was probably the most satisfying experience I've ever had. In my curtain call, tears would come down my face. Being on stage like that, it's incredibly direct.
  • I've had extraordinary relationships with directors where my opinion is heard, loudly. And they were incredibly collaborative with me. But I believe in the hierarchy of the director. It's their art form and I'm only there to help them achieve it.
  • My mother dyed my hair red since I was four because I loved Anne of Green Gables and wanted red hair. Not many people know this but my natural hair color is light strawberry blonde. Got my hair from my grandmother's side of the family.
  • As long as I've given something the best I can, have really committed, everything else is up to God
  • Vengeance is a lazy form of grief.
  • I'm at a time in my life that for me to go back to work it has to be something I feel really passionate about; otherwise I'm not as interested.
  • I don't believe in having body doubles for a film.
  • I was so sick of playing the serious sort of roles. But now I feel I can go back to them. Though once you're hooked, you're hooked.
  • When you're learning any language, whether it be a make-believe language or French or Italian, the agility of your mind is what's interesting.
  • I think at some stage, I would love to have another child. I would love to settle into a relationship that was really important to me. I actually am not good at the balance at that.
  • I'm a woman, a mother, a daughter, a sister. I'm a real person operating in the world. For me to discuss the most private thing feels wrong. It feels like I'm betraying myself and my children.
  • Honestly, people have said everything under the sun. I just want to do my work, raise my kids, and hopefully find somebody who I can share my life with again.
  • I just want to be nominated; beggars can't be choosers.
  • I think each role takes a little from you and circles around you for the rest of your life. I don't think you ever abandon any of them.
  • Stay out of the sun, because it is the worst thing in terms of aging. I'm very medical. I come from a medical family.
  • I would describe myself as emotional and highly strung. If something upsets me, it really upsets me. If something makes me angry, I get really angry. But it's all very upfront. I can't hide it. I'm also loyal and I hope I'm fun.
  • You've just got to have a sense of respect for the person you have children with. Anger doesn't help anybody. Ultimately you have to say forgiveness is important, and honoring what you had together is important. But it's easy to say and harder to do.
  • Life has got all those twists and turns. You've got to hold on tight and off you go.
  • I find standing and posing for photos very awkward.
  • I wore a merkin for my full frontal scene in Billy Bathgate.
  • I always wanted to get married with just candles! I think candlelight is the most beautiful light there is and there's something very spiritual about it.
  • I have my natural blonde eyebrows darkened.
  • Forget the past. You can never predict what the future will be. Live for the moment.
  • Breathe and don't try to be perfect.
  • I want to be tested beyond my comfort zone. I don't want to be safe if it's more interesting to be dangerous.
  • Violence against women is an appalling human rights violation. But it is not inevitable. We can put a stop to this.
  • Whatever you do in life, don't give up on your own dreams.
  • My mom dyed my hair red when I was little using vegetable dye so it wouldn't damage my hair.
  • I like the privacy of my life and I protect it quite vigilantly.
  • I think that the most difficult thing is allowing yourself to be loved, so receiving the love and feeling like you deserve it is a pretty big struggle. I suppose that's what I've learnt recently, to allow myself to be loved.
  • I'm a person that carries everything that happened to me in my past, with me into the future. I refuse to let it make me bitter. I still completely believe in love and I remain open to anything that will happen to me.
  • To be honest, I am completely natural. I have nothing in my face or anything. I wear sunscreen, and I don't smoke. I take care of myself and I'm very proud to say that.
  • If I were a strategically minded person, I think I would have a far different career.
