In an interview with BBC last week, Kidman said that it was time for the country to accept Trump and move on. (Nicole Kidman: It’s Time For The Country To Get Behind Donald Trump)

“[Trump is] now elected and we, as a country, need to support whoever is the president,” the 49-year-old actress said. “That is what the country is based on. And however that happened, it happened, and let’s go.”

The Oscar-winning actress was born to two Australian parents, but holds dual citizenship in both Australia and the United States.

“I’m always reticent to start commenting politically, I’ve never done it in terms of America or Australia,” Kidman said in the BBC interview. “I’m issue based. I’m very, very committed to women’s issues.”

Kidman’s comments about Trump were met with a mixed reaction, but she insists that her intention was simple. “I was trying to stress that I believe in democracy and the American constitution and it was that simple,” Kidman told Access Hollywood.

Kidman, now starring in “Lion,” didn’t want to talk about her remarks anymore than that. “I’m just, I’m out of it now. That’s what I said and it’s that simple.”
