Nicole Kidman was born on June 20, 1967 in Hawaii, but would find her way to Hollywood by way of Australia. Raised in Sydney, Kidman was encouraged by the members in her community and those in her local theatre company to pursue acting as a profession. At the young age of 16, Kidman made her film debut in the 1983 movie Bush Christmas. Her acting career would eventually take on a life of its own in 1989 with her breakthrough thriller Dead Calm, instantly making her a star in the U.S. and abroad. Success in the 1990s soon followed with films such as Billy Bathgate, To Die For, Practical Magic, and Eyes Wide Shut, where she co-starred with her then superstar husband, Tom Cruise. Even though her marriage ended a couple of years later, her acting career reached new heights, winning a Golden Globe for her in role in the musical Moulin Rouge!, and later in 2002, winning her first Academy Award® as Best Actress for playing writer Virginia Woolf in the 2002 drama film The Hours. A singer captured her heart, and in 2006 Kidman married country music legend – and native Australian – Keith Urban. The couple welcomed their first child in 2008. Afterwards, Kidman continued to produce hit after hit movie, including the 2008 drama Australia and the 2009 musical Nine. While welcoming a second child, Kidman took on more film projects in 2010, including Rabbit Hole, which garnered her an Academy Award® nomination. Recently, she played in the 2012 film The Paperboy, opposite of Zac Efron.
