Nicole Kidman has revealed she is unsure about the future of her career, and might move away from acting.
Kidman was promoting her Oprah-endorsed epic Australia when she announced her future plans (or should that be lack of plans).
“In terms of my future as an actor and stuff, I don’t know,” she said.
“I am in a place in my life where … I’ve had some great opportunities and I may just choose to have some more children. I’ve no idea what is in my future but I am very at peace with where I want to be. There are many things I want to do besides act.”
Well good for her I suppose. If she’s happy, I’m happy. But could this little decision have to do with her recent box office disasters. It has been a slippery slope since she won an Oscar for her performance in The Hours.
In the last six years she has starred in no less than 4 flops (not including the average-performing The Golden Compass). Kidman quaintly refered to these films as “quirky”. Honey, if Bewitched was “quirky”, there wouldn’t have been a problem. Me-yow!
Of course, all of this ‘retirement’ nonesense is just speculation. She’s still got a few projects in the pipeline, including Rob Marshall‘s Nine alongside Daniel Day-Lewis and Penelope Cruz. Kidman is also rumoured to star as the world’s first transexual in The Danish Girl. Hmm, sounds “quirky”.
