The Hours star recently opened up about their experience in lockdown during an interview in HELLO! magazine. "We travel together, so we are always together, but never where you are in a house and you can't go to the store, to a restaurant of the movies," she said.

The actress is also a proud mum to Connor and Bella

She said: "They are adults. They are able to make their own decisions. They have made choices to be Scientologists and as a mother, it's my job to love them."

Nicole continued: "I am an example of that tolerance and that's what I believe – that no matter what your child does, the child has love and the child has to know there is available love and I'm open here."
