For whatever reason, the tabloids allege that Nicole Kidman is feuding with a female co-star on the set of just about every project she does. Gossip Cop consistently debunks these baseless claims. Here are five wrong rumors about the actressâs nonexistent feuds.
Several tabloids have falsely claimed that Kidman feuded with Meryl Streep while shooting the second season of âBig Little Lies.â The most recent variation on the theme came last month from Womanâs Day, which said the actresses were having âa war of egosâ on set. The magazine further contended that Kidman was worried about her legendary co-star overshadowing her. Not only did reps for both stars tell Gossip Cop on the record that the story was bogus, but around the same time the article was published, Kidman paid tribute to Streep on Instagram in honor of her birthday. âHappy Birthday to the divine Meryl Streep! I have loved working with you again,â the actress wrote along with a photo of the two at a Golden Globes ceremony.
In January, Gossip Cop busted New Idea for wrongly reporting that Kidman was jealous of Margot Robbie and avoided her at the Gotham Independent Film Awards. âTo have two of the biggest Aussie stars in Hollywood at the same event not even exchange pleasantries is unheard of,â said the outlet. What the tabloid didnât mention is that the actresses posed together on the January cover of W magazine. The following month, Kidman and Robbie sat together at Calvin Kleinâs New York Fashion Week show. Itâs clear the Aussie actresses are quite friendly.
Last year, Gossip Cop debunked more than one story about Kidman feuding with Amber Heard on the set of Aquaman. One of the supposed issues between the two was said to be jealousy, and it was also alleged that Kidman was angry about the way her co-star treated Johnny Depp during their divorce. When the articles emerged, a rep for Kidman assured us they were untrue, and thatâs been definitively proven with time. This past April, Heard praised Kidman during an interview at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, referring to her co-star as âone of the most beautiful, soulful, incredibly kind-hearted women.â And earlier this month, People reported that Kidman and Heard âcouldnât stop laughingâ during the Aquaman panel at Comic-Con.
Several tabloids have also made up stories about Kidman feuding with âBig Little Liesâ co-star Reese Witherspoon. The first one was published in March 2017 by Star, which claimed that Witherspoon felt her co-star wasnât doing enough to promote their show. Similar reports followed, most of them pertaining to alleged jealousy. However, reps for both Witherspoon and Kidman have dismissed all of these feud rumors. In the time since the bogus reports were written, the co-stars have been spotted spending a lot of time together while theyâre not working. In June, Kidman and Witherspoon went bowling with their âBig Little Liesâ co-stars, including Streep. Meanwhile, Kidman revealed in an âExtraâ interview earlier this month that Witherspoon surprised her with an ice cream truck to celebrate her birthday on set.
And finally, Gossip Cop called out Star in 2016 for falsely claiming that Kidman got into a heated fight with Elisabeth Moss on the set of their TV series âTop Of The Lake.â Moss is a Scientologist, and according to the magazine, she went off on Kidman and accused her of hurting Tom Cruiseâs reputation. However, when the show aired the following year, Moss gushed over Kidman in an interview. âI had one of those moments on set when I had to remind myself to be professional, and not be like âOh my God, itâs Nicole Kidman!’â said Moss, who also called her co-star âreally passionate and enthusiastic.â
