From her first faltering steps as an eight-year-old on a Sydney stage to the acclaim that greeted her performance in The Hours, Nicole Kidman has excelled in every arena she has entered. But who is this flame-haired, sapphire-eyed beauty? 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 then-husband Tom Cruise were cast in Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut. Her seductive performance in Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge earned her a Golden Globe award as well as an Oscar nomination, and her Oscar-winning portrayal of Virginia Woolf in The Hours has now firmly established her as an actress of exceptional talent, range, and appeal.

Nicole Kidman is one of the hottest stars in Hollywood, her every move causing a stir in the media. Now, in this first–ever biography, we follow her steady rise from child star, through B–list films, to her prominence as an actress both hugely popular and critically acclaimed. After toiling for years in the Hollywood wilderness—failing auditions for “Ghost,” “Thelma and Louise,” “Sleepless in Seattle,” and “The Silence of the Lambs”—Kidman landed her breakthrough role in “To Die For.” Since then, she’s worked with some of the leading directors and actors of our time, including John Malkovich and Jane Campion in “Portrait of a Lady” and Tom Cruise and Stanley Kubrick in “Eyes Wide Shut.” Her stage debut in “The Blue Room” was dubbed “pure theatrical Viagra” by one mesmerized critic, and Kidman plans to return this year in Ibsen’s “The Lady from the Sea.” Her marriage to Tom Cruise has been the subject of much speculation, and the authors investigate the many rumors surrounding the couple. But since her divorce, Kidman has at last emerged as a fascinating personality in her own right—and her seductive performance as the courtesan in Baz Luhrmann’s extraordinary film “Moulin Rouge,” as well as her recent performance in “The Others,” have made her a contender for the major film awards as well as a top box–office draw.
