Nicole Kidman weighed in on Donald Trump, saying Americans need to get behind their new president.
The actress, a dual U.S.-Australian citizenship holder, made the comments in an interview with BBC Two’s Victoria Derbyshire this week.
“I’m always reticent to start commenting politically; I’ve never done it in terms of America or Australia. I’m issue-based,” Kidman said in the interview. “So I just say, he’s now elected, and we as a country need to support whosever the president because that’s what the country’s based on.”
“Whatever, however that happened, he’s there, and let’s go,” she added.
Kidman said she had no political allegiance to any one party.
Her comments come just days after Hollywood actress Meryl Streep criticized Trump during her acceptance speech for the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2017 Golden Globes on Sunday, January 8.
Kidman, who was born in Hawaii but grew up in Australia, lives in Nashville with her husband, country singer Keith Urban, and their two daughters, has been promoting her new film Lion, which was released in the USA in November of last year.
