Nicole Kidman clarifies comments in support of Donald Trump
Nicole Kidman rarely speaks politics. While other Hollywood actors were busy expressing their contempt for Donald Trump, she always kept quiet, Independent reports.
However, Kidman decided to weigh in on the subject last week, suggesting America needed to come together and support the President-elect.
The 49-year-old has now sought to clarify her comments and insisted she was simply expressing her support for democracy and the American constitution.
“I was trying to stress that I believe in democracy, and the American constitution. It’s that simple,” she told Access Hollywood.
When probed about whether she thought people had misconstrued her remarks, she said: “I’m just, I’m out of it now. That’s what I said. It’s that simple.”
The Hawaiian born actor, who was raised in Australia but has dual citizenship, came under fire after she addressed the election of Mr Trump on the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire Show. Many saw the remarks as an expression of support for the billionaire property developer.
