Nicole Kidman recently played the mother of an adopted son in her critically-acclaimed new film, Lion. Nicole says the script for Lion touched her deeply as soon as she read it. She described it as a ‘love letter’ to all four of her children, reports Daily Mail. The Hollywood star said the real-life relationship of her character Sue Brierley with her adopted Indian son Saroo especially touched her.
“Obviously I am an adoptive mother,’ she offered. ‘So the strength of that relationship is what I related to.”
The 49-year-old actress and her then-husband Tom Cruise adopted Isabella as a newborn in 1992 from a married Scientologist couple, after Nicole suffered an ectopic pregnancy.
They then adopted son Connor, who was born in 1995.
The high-profile couple were married from 1990 till 2001.
And now, the Oscar winner has gushed over the possibility of becoming a grandmother. Her eldest daughter Bella is married. Nicole spoke to The Australian Women’s Weekly about the idea of becoming a grandmother and the mother-of-four was particularly enthusiastic when asked about it.
She exclaimed, “I hope (it happens)! I’m not supposed to say that, am I?”
“My sister’s friend, who is 43, just became a grandmother. My sister and I were saying, “Oh, she’s so lucky!”‘ she added.
