When you’re a big shot A-list actress like Nicole Kidman, the idea of free time is sometimes as elusive as the critical respect and appreciation for a cinematic masterpiece like Days of Thunder*. But even as Kidman is busy making the press rounds for her latest film, Grace of Monaco, the star managed to find some time to swing by the Monash Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia last Friday before she had to hit the road again to walk the red carpet at the Shanghai International Film Festival on Saturday.
The appearance came before Kidman and her husband, Keith Urban, attended the Celebrate Life Ball, which also conveniently benefits the children’s hospital. Kidman reportedly told the Melbourne Herald Sun that she has been passionate about this cause since she became a movie star, and that’s something that we can all certainly admire and appreciate.
*Seriously, I love Days of Thunder.
