People often believe in the stereotype that the industry is a cold place. A dog-eat-dog world where everyone is at the other’s throats is how people picture Hollywood. But that is not always true. There have been heartwarming episodes of friendship and goodwill there too. One such story is that of Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. They are giving the Americans a taste of what friendship down under tastes like. Kidman’s act is a testament to how close their friendship is.

Jackman and costar Nicholas Ward were onstage, running the auction when the hat came up. In the clip, the duo implored the audience to go beyond the current bid at that moment, which stood tall at $19,000. Guess who stepped up?

Kidman’s voice rang through the theatre, “a hundred thousand.” Jackman was momentarily in a state of disbelief, the crowd was in an uproar for her magnanimity and the Eyes Wide Shut star was soon on the stage to grace the audience.

Hugh Jackman jokingly asked her, “Nic! I just want to be clear, this is not Australian dollars.” Kidman went on to the stage and said into the microphone, “I love you, I love Broadway. I love what they do, Broadway Cares. But I also want to say the show was extraordinary.”
