BANG! NEWS – Nicole Kidman has felt “more secure” in her own identity in recent years.
The 53-year-old actress – who is one of the highest-paid stars in Hollywood – has admitted she’s only recently discovered her own “emotional strength”.
Nicole – who is married to music star Keith Urban – shared, “It is true I’ve become more secure in my own identity.
“It’s probably only in the last six or seven years that I’ve gone, ‘Oh, OK, this is who I am, what I am and what I stand for.’ I’ve discovered my own emotional strength, which, when I was a kid, I actually didn’t think was there.
“I always thought I’d be easily broken. And there have been times in my life when I’ve gone, I actually don’t think I’m going to get through this.” However, Nicole now believes that she’s much stronger and more “resilient” than she initially thought.
She told Candis magazine: “I have been down on my knees and have prayed for strength … And it’s been amazing to me what strength you can suddenly find from places you didn’t even think you had. It turns out that I am resilient after all.”
Meanwhile, Keith previously revealed that Nicole has been a “huge influence” on his creativity.
