Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, life has changed for everyone with lockdowns imposed. Nicole Kidman shared her experience on an interview with Glamour UK digital for a cover story.

The veteran actress is starring in HBO series The Undoing. Kidman said that her daughters Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret were already familiar with remote learning “because we travel,” but other elements of the pandemic have been a serious change of pace.

“The social distance has been very difficult for them,” she explained. “They are working through the emotions.”

“For a 12-year-old, it’s about not being able to access friends easily – that’s a whole thing which every parent will be going through. And then, there’s a 9-year-old, who’s socially forming.”

“One of the hardest things is just watching them pine and yearn for their friends. I pine and yearn for my friends too.”

It is important to show support to your children in challenging times, a theme that Kidman touched on when talking about her role in the upcoming Ryan Murphy Netflix musical Prom. 

“It’s about how unconditional love will conquer all,” she stated. “For a parent to say to a child, ‘You’re loved. You’re just loved,’ is the most important thing and, ‘you can believe, you can do, you can be who you are, and I will love you.”‘
