Nicole Kidman was reportedly in tears at a pre-Golden Globes party on Saturday in Beverly Hills as she learned her house in Sydney was under threat due to the devastating bushfires ravaging the country.
“I’m so sorry. I’m distracted right now with everything happening in Australia,” Kidman was reported as saying as she arrived to a flurry of press and publicists surrounding her.
“She was very poised, taking photos and talking with [actors] Joey King and Josh Dallas,” a witness told Us Weekly. “She had a whole crowd around her and no one knew what she had just experienced. It was sad to watch but also showed how professional she is to still show up and do what is required of her.”
Soon after, Kidman shared an Instagram post noting organisations her six million followers could donate to in order to help the firefighters and relief centres. “Our family’s support, thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the fires all over Australia,” Kidman said. “We are donating $500,000 to the Rural Fire Services who are all doing and giving so much right now.”
Tonight, she was stunning in red as she arrived at the 2020 Golden Globe Awards with her husband Keith Urban close by.
Kidman is nominated for the Best Actress In A Drama Series gong at tonight’s Golden Globes for her role as Celeste in Big Little Lies. She will go head-to-head with Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show), Reese Witherspoon (The Morning Show), Olivia Coleman (The Crown) and Jodie Comer (Killing Eve). In 2018, Kidman took home a Golden Globe for the same role and gave one of the most memorable speeches in the award show’s history.
“This character that I play represents something that is the centre of our conversation right now: abuse,” she said to a captivated auditorium. “I do believe and I hope that we can elicit change through the stories we tell and the way we tell them. Let’s keep the conversation alive. Let’s do this.”
