A look at Hollywood's brightest star, featuring 60 color photos. From her first faltering steps as an eight-year-old on a Sydney stage to the acclaim that greeted her Oscar-nominated performance in Moulin Rouge and her captivating turn on stage in The Blue Room, Nicole Kidman has excelled in every arena she has entered. But who is this flame-haired, sapphire-eyed beauty who has taken the entertainment world by storm? Kidman's rise through the ranks of Australian television and film eventually led to leading roles in Hollywood. While box office success initially stayed just out of range, her A-list status was assured when she and husband Tom Cruise were cast in Stanley Kubrick's controversial film Eyes Wide Shut. But why did everything seem to fall apart just as she was reaching her goals? And what has she had to sacrifice to achieve them? In Nicole Kidman, journalists Paul Simpson and Ruth Thomas look at her intriguing path to superstardom.
