June 20 is Nicole Kidman’s birthday.
The award-winning actress, producer and wife of superstar singer Keith Urban turns 51 years old Wednesday, and she’s packed in quite a career.
Kidman was born in Honolulu, HI but made a name for herself early on in Australia. Since she was so fair skinned and couldn’t partake in many of the outdoor activities her peers could, she sought refuge indoors and got involved in acting, singing, and ballet. She eventually dropped out of high school to become an actress, and never looked back.
Since dropping out of high school to become an actress, Kidman has acted in dozens of films and gone on to win one Academy Award, two Primetime Emmy Awards, and five Golden Globe Awards.
She’s also married to Grammy winning country singer Keith Urban. The couple has been married for 12 years and have two daughters together.
But Kidman credits her natural beauty to not wearing much makeup and staying out of the sun. Her best friend Naomi Watts once said of her, “Nicole won’t cross the street without a hat.”
Whatever she’s doing to stay young, it’s working. Check out some of her best shots through the years below.
