Nicole Kidman stars in the HBO film "Hemingway & Gellhorn," alongside Clive Owen. She also recently starred in "Just Go With It," opposite Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, and Joel Schumacher's "Trespass" with Nicolas Cage.

Kidman recently starred as Becca in "Rabbit Hole," opposite Aaron Eckhart, for which she has received Golden Globe, SAG and Independent Spirit Award nominations for Best Actress. From David Lindsay-Abaire's own screenplay adaptation of his Pulitzer Prize-winning play, "Rabbit Hole" was developed by Kidman's Blossom Films production company and is directed by John Cameron Mitchell. The cast includes Dianne Wiest, Tammy Blanchard, Sandra Oh, Giancarlo Esposito and Jon Tenney.

Nicole Kidman first came to the attention of American audiences with her critically acclaimed performance in the riveting 1989 Australian made psychological thriller "Dead Calm." She has since become an internationally-recognized, award-winning actress known for her range and versatility.

In 2003, Nicole won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, a BAFTA Award and a Berlin Silver Bear for her portrayal of Virginia Woolf in "The Hours." In 2002, she was honored with her first Oscar nomination for her performance in the innovative musical, "Moulin Rouge!" For that role, and her performance in the psychological thriller, "The Others," she received dual 2002 Golden Globe nominations, winning for Best Actress in a Musical. She was awarded her initial Golden Globe for a pitch-perfect, wickedly funny portrayal of a woman obsessed with becoming a TV personality at all costs, in "To Die For," directed by Gus Van Sant and has been nominated three additional times: for her performances in "Birth," (2004) "Cold Mountain," (2003) and "Billy Bathgate" (1991).

In 2008 Nicole reunited with her old friend, "Moulin Rouge!" director Baz Luhrmann, and fellow Australian actor Hugh Jackman on Luhrmann's World War II love story, "Australia." Other recent films include "Margot at the Wedding" with Jennifer Jason Leigh and Jack Black; the screen adaptation of the fantasy novel, "The Golden Compass" with Daniel Craig; and the Academy Award-winning animated musical "Happy Feet," for which she voiced the role of Norma Jean. Nicole also narrated the Sundance Grand Jury Award and Audience Award-winning documentary "God Grew Tired of Us," as well as the film biography of Simon Wiesenthal, "I Have Never Forgotten You."

Kidman made a highly-lauded London stage debut in the fall of 1998, starring with Iain Glenn in "The Blue Room," David Hare's modern adaptation of Schnitzler's "La Ronde," for director Sam Mendes and the Donmar Warehouse. For her performance Kidman won London's Evening Standard Award and was nominated in the Best Actress category for a Laurence Olivier Award. "The Blue Room" moved to Broadway for a sold-out, limited run from November of 1998 through March of 1999.

In 2006, Nicole founded Blossom Films which is dedicated to supporting and nurturing the artistic visions of screenwriters and filmmakers. In addition to "Rabbit Hole," Blossom has also produced filmmaker Tom Bezucha's "Monte Carlo" for Twentieth Century Fox which is due for release in 2011. Nicole has numerous projects in development including an adaptation of the best-selling novel, "Little Bee" by Chris Cleave, and "Danish Girl," to be directed by Lasse Halström.

In January of 2006, Kidman was awarded Australia's highest honor, the Companion in the Order of Australia. She was also named, and continues to serve, as Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Development Fund for Women, UNIFEM, whose goals are to foster women's empowerment and gender equality, to raise awareness of the infringement on women's human rights around the world and to end violence against women. For the past nine years, Kidman has served as the UNCIFEM Ambassador for Australia. Most recently, Kidman has lent her voice in support of the Women's Cancer Program at Stanford with Dr. Jonathan Berek. Along with her husband, Keith Urban, she helped to raised nearly half a million dollars for the Women's Cancer Program which is a world-renowned center for research into the causes, treatment, prevention, and eventual cure of women's cancer.

Nicole serves as an Ambassador of the Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick.
