“Boy Erased” Star Nicole Kidman Covers Marie Claire’s October Issue

Posted on September 17, 2018

“Boy Erased” and “Big Little Lies” star Nicole Kidman covers the October 2018 issue of Marie Claire magazine photographed by Thomas Whiteside and styled by fashion editor Joseph Errico.



On whether she’s ruled by her heart or her head as an artist: “I always say I’m a pretty even mix, but I’m probably dominated by [my heart]. If you don’t come from a feeling place, you just end up with an enormous amount of technique. I have this [brains], but that can be overruled. It fluctuates too. I have a strong sexuality. It’s a huge part of who I am and my existence.”

On her feminist roots: “We’d get teased in school: ‘Oh your mom is so radical.’ At the time we’d roll our eyes and be embarrassed. But my sister and I are both advocates now. It was an incredible gift to be given.”

On combating fear: “…I was raised by stoics. It’s a philosophy, a way of behaving and being in the world, which I kind of don’t have. I have a little bit of it, but I have far more of, like, ‘Oh my God, how am I going to get through this? …I can’t get up! I think once you have children, your resilience is built, and your ability to go, ‘OK, I can’t wallow…”

On her philosophy of giving back: “The day after I won [the Emmy for Big Little Lies], I was in San Francisco doing a fundraiser for domestic violence. It’s probably the Catholic in me, but as soon as there’s some sort of glory or you receive something, you then have got to immediately counteract it with giving back.”

On her conflicts with male directors accused of sexual misconduct: “I look at those films that Polanski made, and they’re amazing. I’m sort of navigating through it myself with my own moral compass. What do you do? Do you ban it? Or see it as art? Or judge it in this time looking back at that time? I have no answer.”
