Nicole Kidman urges young actresses to take care

Nicole Kidman

LONDON: Nicole Kidman has urged young women to ‘’take care’’ of themselves in the wake of the sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

The 50-year-old actress believes aspiring stars in Hollywood need to make sure they ‘’don’t let anyone break [their] spirit’’ in light of the allegations made against the disgraced producer, who stands accused of sexually harassing a number of female employees over a period of almost three decades.

When asked if she had any advice for young women in Hollywood, Nicole said: ‘’Particularly for a young girl, it’s take care of yourself, make sure you are protected, don’t let anyone break your spirit and be yourself. So much of the time we model ourselves and our identities on what we see and actually finding who you are and what you want to say and what your voice is, is one of the hardest things to do but one of the most important things to do.’’ And the ‘Big Little Lies’ star took a moment to slam Weinstein’s alleged behaviour, as she said it ‘’cannot be tolerated’’.

Speaking to UK radio station, she said: ‘’I’ve been working now for well over 2 decades for UN Women to eradicate violence against women, this is very important right now we cannot tolerate this behaviour.’’
