Here’s Nicole Kidman leaving the Duke of York Theatre after a performance of ‘Photograph 51.’ I’ve never seen Nicole perform live, but she’s an amazing actress, so I’m sure she’s killing it on stage! She has had a lot of roles on and off the stage as of late: in addition to starring in ‘Photograph 51,’ she was Leah Remini’s guardian angle and is in talks to join ‘Wonder Woman.’
Leah said that after she left Scientology, one person she kept thinking about was Nicole, who left the church after her split from Tom Cruise. Leah wrote in her memoir ‘Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology’:
During this confusing early period, I sometimes felt adrift. But I had one figure I kept front and center in my mind to keep from going crazy: Nicole Kidman. That’s right, Tom Cruise’s ex was my guardian angel. Although I never met her or attempted to meet her, I thought about her a lot.
“While I stared at the dark ceiling at night, unable to sleep, I would say to myself, ‘Remember Nicole Kidman. She was declared an SP and left the church, and she’s doing okay. Her career is still going, and she has a husband and family… Just remember Nicole Kidman. She left and she’s okay…'”
Leah even wrote about how Bella Cruise and Connor Cruise allegedly referred to Nicole as an SP when she chatted with them after Tom and Katie Holmes’s wedding. When Bella called Nicole an SP, Leah said she reminded the kids that Nicole was still her mother.
Bella scoffed and said, ‘Well, she is [an SP].’ Connor just looked out the window. There was something human about his silence and the sadness I felt in it.”
Nicole has declined to discuss Scientology, saying she respects her children’s beliefs, but my heart breaks for her if her kids really were turned against her. However, she’s persevered with a second marriage to Keith Urban, two young daughters, and she seems to have had more contact with Bella and Connor since Tom and Katie’s divorce.
And no one can say Nicole’s career isn’t in full swing! She’s in talks to join ‘Wonder Woman’! The Wrap said Nicole is in talks to play Hyppolyta, who is Wonder Woman’s biological mother (and head of the Amazons). It’s unclear if the movie will stick with that identity for Nicole’s character, but whether she’s Wonder Woman’s mother or another Amazonian warrior, how exciting is it that Nicole could be joining the movie?! I hope “the talks” work out :).
