Seven Celebrities Who Keep Their Politics Under Wraps
These smartest artists see no reason to divide their audiences or distract from their creative work
Nicole Kidman. The actress dislikes talking politics, which sets her apart from many of her peers. Kidman actually got a lot of flack in January when she commented on Donald Trump’s election win. She gave a generic statement in support; while it didn’t align her politically with him, it still infuriated those with their heels dug in against the then-incoming administration.
“I just say: ‘He’s now elected and we as a country need to support whoever is the president, because that’s what the country is based on,'” Kidman told the BBC. She added that she holds dual citizenships in Australia and America and did vote in the 2016 presidential election, but talking politics was not her style. “I’m always reticent to, sort of, comment politically.” Kidman did not want to reveal the candidate who earned her vote.
