There’s no doubt that Nicole Kidman is one of the most in-demand actresses in the entire world.
However, Nicole Kidman shared that she still suffers from fears behind the scenes.
The 53-year-old star spoke with the Sydney Morning Herald this weekend to reveal that her relatives and friends’ sudden deaths have created a deep impact in her life.
She told the outlet, “I’ve been given death as a very sudden thing. I’ve not nursed someone through a slow death. I’ve just had people taken.”
Nicole added, “I’ve now had it happen repeatedly. I almost get scared saying it because I get terrified it’s going to happen again.”
“I still have a lot of fear for that.”
Actress’ close friends’ sudden deaths
This included her movie director for Eyes Wide Shut, Stanley Kubrick died from a heart attack in 1999 just after they finished filming.
In 2005, one of her dearest friends, Robert McCann, died, and her brother-in-law Angus Hawley tragically passed away while on a business trip in 2015.
One of the most devastating deaths she had to face was her dad’s death, Dr. Antony Kidman, in 2004, after an unexpected heart attack.
The former wife of Tom Cruise revealed that these tragic losses made her “unbelievably uncertain.” Now, she works through her fears with the help of a therapist.
“There’s instability to the ground and to what’s here,” Nicole said. “Everything can be taken tomorrow. So that’s what I operate from.”
Early this year, the “To Die For” actress opened up about her late father, wanting to have dinner with him again.
In April, speaking to the Wall Street Journal in a round of quick-fire questions asking if she could have dinner with anyone, she said she would constantly pick her dad.
“My dad, who’s not around anymore. He died, and I would love to have dinner with him again.”
Nicole Kidman’s Production Company
The actress’s attitude certainly fuels her incredible business drive, which has seen her launch her own production company, Blossom Films.
She was recently given the green light to start production of her $100 million series, “Nine Perfect Strangers” in Australia.
This project will, reportedly, bring new life to Australia’s film industry after it was hit with the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph in July, the mom-of-two said she’s “thrilled” to help Aussies get jobs for the film industry.
“It’s a great opportunity for me to give back to the community that nurtured me through so much of my career,” Nicole Kidman said.
