Apparently Nicole Kidman kissed Naomi Watts, thus making a statement not about sexuality but rather about her career.
Nicole Kidman took to the stage to deliver a speech about female empowerment, in which, she described the time, when she was fourteen, when Jane Campion has reached out to her with a role in a student film, A Girls Own Story.
Now she was too scared and nervous to take the part, because it would have required her to don a shower cap and kiss a girl on screen.
To excuse herself from all this she made an excuse that her final exams are just round the corner and she needs to study for the same and so would not be able to take on the project.
Now the truth was that the part would have required her to appear up on the screen wearing a shower cap and kissing a girl, whereas she wanted to be an actress with long flowing hair and getting a change to kiss boys.
Post this she even discussed the need to support women in films and stated that they need to be there for every girl, to support her artistically, emotionally and financially.
“Let us create opportunities for her and teach her to manage that inner voice that is trying so hard every day to hold her back. Let us show her that she is strong, smart, and talented and she deserves every part that might interest her and at equal pay. Let’s stand tall and never ever apologize for it.” stated the telexed actor.
Well, all said and done, the kissing did capped the presentation, but during all of this, Nicole Kidman received the 2015 Crystal Award for Excellence in Films at the Women In Film’s Crystal + Lucy Awards.
More to girl power!!
