Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban got slammed by the internet for skipping a mandatory quarantine in state-approved hotels in Sydney. On Monday, the couple and their daughters, Faith and Sunday, flew from Tennessee to Sydney in their private jet. According to the Australian government, “all travelers arriving in Australia by air or sea must be isolated in mandatory quarantine accommodation for 14 days from their arrivals, with few exceptions.” Kidman and Urban, however, decided they were the exception to the rule. 

 

Normally, travelers must stay in state-approved hotels for the whole duration of their quarantine. The Australia Government website clearly states that “exceptions are rare due to high risk of not quarantining. They are only considered where there are strong medical, health or compassionate grounds.” Kidman and Urban, however, received permission by the New South Wales Government to quarantine in their own house. After the private jet landed, the couple went directly to their $6.5 million mansion in the Southern Highlands. There, an 18-meter swimming pool, a gym and a full-sized tennis court awaited the couple.

Other than serving as a quarantine location, the mansion is also the base for Nicole’s new production, Nine Perfect Strangers. This production is based on a 2018 novel by Liane Moriarty and it’s projected to bring $100 million to the Australian film industry. Unlike Nicole and Keith, other the crew members arriving overseas will quarantine in a state-approved hotel for 14 days. Nicole and other producers are responsible for paying the crew’s medical and security costs. 

 

Prior to this production, Nicole Kidman has won one Academy Award, two Primetime Emmy Awards and four Golden Globe Awards. Her famous productions include Bombshell (2019), Aquaman (2018), Lion(2016) and many more. She was listed as one of the highest-paid actresses in the world in 2006, 2018, and 2019.

Though Kidman and Urban have already received permission from the government, the internet is criticizing the exceptions made due to their privilege.

 

On the other hand, Nicole’s fans are defending the actress, saying that the couple still followed the rules and went through the necessary application process.
