Nicole Kidman is such a sweetie. As if she's not busy enough with her newborn baby, she found time in her schedule to pick up the phone and call Olympians from her native Australia. Nic called Olympic sailing team members Malcom Page and Nathan Wilmot before their race, and today they ended up winning the gold!
According to Melbourne's Herald Sun, Page told reporters that at first he rejected "the unknown number" on his cell phone before he realized it was Kidman calling.
Page joked, "I was getting breakfast and thought, 'Ah, I just don't want to talk to her today,' so I bumped it. Then two seconds later there was a message from Nicole wishing us good luck."
"I ended up returning her call. She was very happy," added the athlete who, with his sailing partner had named their boat The Australian after Kidman's upcoming movie. "She was very surprised that we do have a tradition of naming our boats after her movies and she's just really stoked to be part of a team."
That's such a cool story! And congrats to the guys for pulling off the win!
