Back in Australia to visit her family for the first time since her romantic June wedding, Nicole Kidman was determined to make it a happy Christmas for 400 patients at the Sydney Children's Hospital.
The Antipodean country's biggest star paid for the youngsters to attend a private screening of her hit animated penguin movie Happy Feet with her. "It's just lovely to be able to do something for the children," said Nicole. The 39-year-old actress, whose husband Keith Urban is undergoing rehab back in the US, added: "It puts life in perspective."
Nicole, who was accompanied to the special event by her daughter Isabella, has been catching up with her sister Antonia and parents during her low-key visit. And the Cold Mountain star took a trip down memory lane when she attended a matinee performance at her old acting school, the Australian Theatre For Young People.
She is also believed to have a meeting planned with famed Aussie director Baz Luhrman, to talk about their upcoming movie project The Australian, co-starring Hugh Jackman. Work commitments wrapped up, she's expected to fly back to her and Keith's marital home in Nashville, Tennessee, to spend Christmas with the country singer.
Other Aussie celebrities, including Hugh and Elle Macpherson, will meanwhile be jetting in the opposite direction, arriving in Sydney for the festive season. While Paris Hilton and Sir Richard Branson are said to be planning New Year celebrations there.
