Nicole Kidman Quotes On Acting

I love acting, but it’s much more fun taking the kids to the zoo.

I do research. I do emotional sort of Method work. Somehow it’s a huge mishmash of things that becomes my own acting process and my own way of navigating through something. But ultimately the desire is to be honest, and for that truth to bleed through into your work and onto the screen.

Acting for me is not a

Acting for me is not a business, it’s about trying to make pieces of art that I believe that I feel proud of. And it’s the journey of that.

Once I start putting all my little insecurities in my mind, I’m not actually acting. Then it’s about me – and it should never be about me. It should be about the character.

Acting runs through my blood. There is some sort of creative desire to express myself and I would need that outlet. Otherwise I would be a nightmare to live with

I just feel my way through. If I had to give an acting class, I wouldn’t know what to do.

Nicole Kidman Quotes On Character

Happiness, that’s obviously different for everybody, but what I call my joy, the thing that makes me feel incredibly satiated, is my family, and then I get to go and play out all of my ideas and feelings through all these different characters.

I auditioned for the role of an angel in the Nativity play at school. I didn’t get it. I auditioned for Mary; didn’t get it. So I made up the character of the sheep who sat next to Baby Jesus.

I think having my life

I think having my life be as private and quiet as possible is a way in which then I can go and play characters.

Once I start putting all my little insecurities in my mind, I’m not actually acting. Then it’s about me – and it should never be about me. It should be about the character.

With every character, you alter, you can’t be attached to your own identity.

When you know psychologically what [characters] are feeling, then that plays out on how you dress a lot of times.

I suppose the underlying current for me is the idea of not doing something I’ve done before. I call myself a character actor and I’m always trying to stay a character actor.

Nicole Kidman Quotes On Children

Even as a child I had a strong relationship with yearning and desire. And loss. Those things spoke to me.

Somehow destiny comes into play. These children end up with you and you end up with them. It’s something quite magical.

I love acting, but it’s much more fun taking the kids to the zoo.

I think it's important for me

I think it’s important for me as an actor that I say these are the issues I’m going to be committed to. One of them for me is women and children’s health around the world and their rights;the other is ovarian cancer.

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.

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 trying to find a man to share my life with, but it’s not been easy. I’m a 35-year-old woman with two small children.

As an actor timing is important, especially as a mother with small children, so a lot is chance.

As a child, my whole life was books. They were my fantasy. That’s where I could go. That was a lot of times [what] saved me.

Nicole Kidman Quotes On Desire

When you relinquish

When you relinquish the desire to control your future, you can have more happiness.

Acting runs through my blood. There is some sort of creative desire to express myself and I would need that outlet. Otherwise I would be a nightmare to live with

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 just have a desire not to judge and view things compassionately.

Nicole Kidman Quotes On Film

I believe the experiences of life are more important than any film you make.

As much as I have films and all that sort of stuff, a lot of my memories are to do with relationships and love.

I find trying to solve problems and save lives is far more important than my film career.

My choices in films are spontaneous.

I’m always interested in films that are about extreme subject matters.

I believe that as much as

I believe that as much as you take, you have to give back. It’s important not to focus on yourself too much.

Whatever you do in life, don’t give up on your own dreams.

I’m now so much more capable of receiving love and giving it in a far different way.

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 have always tried to be a woman who protects other women. I have a sister, I have daughters, I have girlfriends, and I was raised by a feminist mother.

As an actor timing is important, especially as a mother with small children, so a lot is chance.

If you take care of the woman in the family, the whole family prospers. But when the mother falters, the family falls apart.

Probably the biggest compliment someone can give you is, “Gosh, you look great. You don’t look tired.”
