Nicole was born in Honolulu, to Australian parents Antony David and Janelle Ann Kidman. Her father was a highly respected scientist, clinical psychologist, biochemist and book author, while her mother was a nursing instructor and the editor of her father’s books.
The whole family lived in the United States, where Antony and Janelle travelled on education visas, until Nicole turned four and then moved back to Sidney. Her talents for singing, dancing and acting, that eventually boosted Nicole Kidman net worth to tens of millions, unfolded when she was still studying at North Sydney Girls’ High School. The only thing that kept Kidman from devoting all of her time for the stage was her shyness. It’s quite hard to believe today, but according to Nicole, sometimes she still regresses into that same shyness that used to mark her teenage years. As was revealed by an actress, she still feels uncomfortable going to the restaurant alone and avoids big parties.
Kidman debuted in movies when she was 16. Her first role was in Australian drama film Bush Christmas. Although this film did not make a considerable contribution to Nicole Kidman net worth, it gave her something worth much more: self-confidence. During the following decade Kidman featured on a number of movies, including BMX Bandits, Windrider, A Country Practice, Emerald City and Variety. In 1990, while filming The Days of Thunder, Nicole met her future husband, Tom Cruise. For the curious ones, this actor is currently married to the 16 his younger Hollywood starlet, Katie Holmes. Although both Tom and his former wife are considered to be A-list actors, his current fortune is significantly superior to Nicole Kidman net worth: Cruise owns capital and assets evaluated at $250 million. Days of Thunder was a great commercial success and grossed nearly $160 million worldwide. Following this breakthrough, Nicole’s fortune grew faster each year.
