Number Fifteen: She Was Born in Hawaii. You might think of Kidman as an Aussie babe, but the truth is that she was born in Honolulu! Kidman moved to Australia when she was about four years old, and she grew up there. That explains her accent.

Number Fourteen: She Dropped Out of High School. Kidman belongs to the interesting group of elite celebrities who have become wildly successful despite having dropped out of high school.

Number Twelve: She’s a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. Kidman is more than just a pretty face – she gives back, too! In 2006, Kidman was named a UN Goodwill Ambassador with a special focus on women’s rights.

Number Eleven: She Holds a Special Oscar Record. Kidman became the very first Australian to win the Oscar for best actress. She won the Oscar for her 2003 film The Hours.

Number Ten: She Used to Be “Storky.” Kidman earned the nickname of “Storky” in school when she was a teenager because of her long, slender limbs. Looks like Kidman got the last laugh!
