Nicole Kidman responds to ‘Grace of Monaco’ criticism


Speaking to Britain’s Daily Mail, Nicole Kidman has said she understands why Prince Albert II of Monaco and his sisters Princesses Caroline and Stephanie criticized her new movie Grace of Monaco, which depicts their late mother Grace Kelly.

The actress said: “I know they’re upset. I would be too if it were my mother. It’s a child’s job to protect their parent. In that regard, I get it. I get why the children are upset.

“I can’t say much other than that I have a great respect and regard for their mother. It’s not meant to be a biopic. I certainly did my best to honor everything that was real and truthful in it.”


“This is about a woman who went from winning an Oscar – the pinnacle of her career – to marrying a prince,” she added. “She had to learn to be that, it doesn’t just happen. That requires skill, commitment and respect. She had to play a role – which was to be a princess.

“There’s a fairy-tale aspect to it, which is why it isn’t a biopic.”

Last week, the Monaco royals released a statement in which they called the movie a “farce” with “dubious historical references”, insisting it should not be classified as a biopic.
