Nicole Kidman, who is a dual citizen of both the United States and Australia, encouraged Americans to accept and support President-elect Donald Trump.
“I’m always reticent to start commenting politically. I’ve never done it in terms of America or Australia. I’m issue-based,” Kidman said in an interview with BBC Two about her new film, Lion. “So I just say, he’s now elected, and we as a country need to support whoever the president because that’s what the country’s based on.”
“Whatever, however that happened, he’s there, and let’s go,” she added.
The contrast couldn’t be bigger with Meryl Streep’s speech at the 74th Annual Golden Globes. While accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award, she implored Hollywood to help “safeguard the truth” by challenging Trump’s attack on the press, foreigners and the entertainment industry.
