It was last September that Nicole Kidman lost her father.
The psychologist and biochemist died suddenly aged 75.
And in a recent interview with Vogue Australia, the veteran actor admitted she is still in a state of grief.
“You’ve caught me at a time when I’m still recovering and in grief,” Kidman said.
While emotional on the subject, she still has the ability to keep a level head and remind herself of the joys in life that make life worth living and moving forward.
“There are times you go, ‘Gosh, I wish I could just go and hide in a hole and never come out,’ ” she said.
“And then you go, ‘That was yesterday.’ I have a four-year-old and a six-year-old, and just hearing their laugh . . . it’s life in its most powerful form.”
It is an opinion that has strengthened her family and made her more grateful for those that she loves in her life.
