Nicole Kidman Believes the Country Needs to Support Donald Trump as President

Fear not, fans of legendary Australian actors and opponents of American demagogues: Nicole Kidman has responded to criticism regarding her recent statement on US President-elect Donald Trump, saying she merely wants the nation to back the new bloke in charge.

The "Lion" actress came under fire this week for declaring that it's time to support the reality-TV-host-turned-politician now that he's been elected because "that's what the country's based on".

At the Golden Globes on January 8, Nicole's The Hours co-star Meryl Streep took a stand against Trump while accepting the 2017 Cecil B DeMille Award.

When probed about whether she thought people had misconstrued her remarks, she said: "I'm just, I'm out of it now". I mean, I hate to say it, but yeah, youre the heartbeat of the family.

Since making the comments on BBC, Kidman tried to clarify what she meant, telling Access Hollywood that she was simply "trying to stress that I believe in democracy, and the American constitution". I'm issue-based. I comment on the things I'm [passionate about]. Though they did not indicate who for, both she and her husband, Keith Urban, voted in the 2016 election.

She added: "Whatever, however, that happened, he's there, and let's go". "I'm very, very committed to women's issues".

Kidman stars starring in Lion, which is now in theaters.
