I believe in democracy: Nicole Kidman

Los Angeles:

Actress Nicole Kidman, who faced criticism after her comment on the 2016 US presidential election results, says she believes in democracy.
The Hawaiian-born actress raised in Australia and who has dual citizenship said earlier: “I just say, Trump’s now elected, and we as a country need to support whoever’s the President because that’s what the country’s based on.”

This invited the ire of several social media users then and she clarified her stance now, reports people.com.

“I was trying to stress that I believe in democracy and the American constitution. It’s that simple. I’m just, I’m out of it now. That’s what I said. It’s that simple,” she said.

She told the BBC 2 channel that she tends to stay away from speaking about politics.

Having said that, Kidman maintained there were certain causes. “I’m issue based. I’m very, very committed to women’s issues.”
