Is it just too obvious to ask “what has Nicole Kidman done to her face?” while she is on Graham Norton?

One Graham Norton Show viewer even declared, “Nicole Kidman’s face has all the movement of a glacier. #botox.”
The 47-year-old actress has always insisted that she’s never undergone any plastic surgery in the past; however, she has admitted that she’s tried Botox.
During an interview the famous actress conducted back in 2013, via the Mirror, Nicole Kidman admitted, “No surgery for me; I did try Botox, unfortunately, but I got out of it and now i can finally move my face again.”
Nicole Kidman even previously talked about how her upbringing means that she has always maintained a natural look.
According to the Express, she declared, “I am completely natural. I wear sunscreen, I don’t smoke and I take care of myself, and I am proud to say that. Anybody can do anything to themselves — I don’t judge — but personally I believe in being physically fit. That’s how I was raised. I can’t go in the sun because I’m fair-skinned. It was a nightmare when I was younger but it has its benefits now.”
Nicole Kidman appeared on The Graham Norton Show to promote her upcoming performance in Photograph 51, the West End play that she is set to appear in over the next few weeks. It’s her first theater performance in 17 years. The play revolves around the true story of Rosalind Franklin, a scientist and researcher who helped to discover DNA in the 1950s.
Earlier this week, Nicole Kidman admitted that she took the role as a dedication to her late father, Anthony, who died a year ago after a fall in Singapore, where he was visiting Nicole’s sister Antonia. He was 75 years old.
The subject matter intrigued Anthony Kidman greatly, with Nicole admitting, “Part of me didn’t want to do it but my mother Janelle said, ‘You must. Your father would have wanted it.’ I had discussed the possibility of the play before his death and he was transfixed by the idea. But I was still hesitating.”
Anthony Kidman worked as a biochemist for his entire life. Nicole explained, “My father and people like him quietly went about their business in laboratories and yet produced life-changing work. He would do research on muscular dystrophy and actually made an enormous contribution in his own quiet way. It is almost the direct opposite of how I have earned a living.”
It’s been a rather odd week for Nicole Kidman. While her adopted daughter Isabella Cruise got married earlier this week, it’s since been revealed that neither her nor her ex-husband and the adopted father to Isabella weren’t invited to the ceremony, which was instead simply attended by her close friends.
