Kidman says comments about Trump support weren’t endorsement

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Nicole Kidman attended the 6th Annual AACTA International Awards held at Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles last week.

LOS ANGELES >> Nicole Kidman says her comments that Americans should support President-elect Donald Trump were merely a statement of her belief in democracy, not an endorsement of the incoming president.

The Oscar-winning actress’s earlier remarks sparked both criticism and praise online after they were aired by the BBC earlier this week.

Kidman tells Access Hollywood that her comments were misconstrued. She says, “I was trying to stress that I believe in democracy and the American Constitution, and it was that simple.”

When an interviewer pressed her for more details, Kidman threw up her hands and said she was done commenting on the topic.

Kidman was born in Hawaii to Australian parents and holds dual citizenship in Australia and the U.S.

Kidman won an Oscar for 2002’s “The Hours” and currently stars in “Lion.”

  • Nicole gets it, Hollywood is so liberal it’s a concept they have a problem with. We are one country, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

  • She blieves in democracy and her statement of supporting the president elect is on par with many of the citizens of this country. With a healthy three dimensions outlook we are moving forward after the election and awaits what will happen under the new president! At least Ms. Kidman didn’t ” pull a wool over our eyes ” at a place and time other than what we expected as some elderly acting professional did!
