Australian actor Nicole Kidman has described 2014 as her toughest year as the sudden death of her father had left her family in “a lot of pain”.
“You know, I’ll look back at this year as the toughest that our family has ever gone through,” 47-year-old Nicole told Sydney’s Daily Telegraph.
The actor’s father Antony Kidman, a doctor, died in Singapore in September from a heart attack as he was visiting daughter Antonia and her family.
“I talk about it because I like to keep him alive, in a way,” said Nicole, adding: “Even though you talk about it, you’re still in so much pain so, yeah, as a family we’re still in a lot of pain. As any family knows when you’ve had a huge loss, it makes you tighter, you have to also protect each other.”
