Quotes From Nicole Kidman:
"It's so bizarre, I'm not scared of snakes or spiders. But I'm scared of butterflies. There is something eerie about them. Something weird!"
"I think it's important that we don't all have to hold our heads high all the time saying everything's fine."
"I would love to have boobs and a butt like Jennifer Lopez but I'm not having surgery so there it is."
"You look at somebody's work as an actor and you can see their emotional life being fed into it and you can kind of feel them through it."
"I never feel like I'm in control. There's a certain type of actor that relinquishes control when they act, and then there's another type who ends up being a producer and director and they're more someone that likes to take control."
"Even from a very early age I knew I didn't want to miss out on anything life had to offer just because it might be considered dangerous."
