Nicole Kidman on What She'd Like to See From the #MeToo Movement

“I don’t think it’s just the guys, it’s the whole culture of what we’re dealing with,” said Nicole Kidman of the #MeToo movement. “It covers so many topics. If you’re talking about it in terms of gender parity in the workforce, if you’re talking about sexual harassment, there’s so many things that are under that veil.”

The “Boy Erased” actress sat down at the Variety Studio presented by AT&T at the Toronto Film Festival with director Karyn Kusama to share their thoughts on the #MeToo movement.

The actress said that one part of combatting the insidious power structure is for people to rewire their brains and reflect. “Going ‘Oh, what I thought was okay because of how I’ve been raised, is actually not okay.’ It’s a big movement for respect, equality and decency,” said Kidman. “It’s so people can move forward no matter what their gender. Move forward in their jobs, in their careers and in their life paths just a little bit more balanced.”
