Rare Photographs of 16-Year-Old Nicole Kidman in Sydney, December 1983

Born Nicole Mary Kidman on June 20, 1967, in Honolulu, Hawaii, Nicole Kidman is one of Hollywood's most beautiful and well-regarded leading female stars.

At age 4 she moved with her parents to Sydney, Australia. As a schoolgirl she attended a local theater group and, encouraged by director Jane Campion, made a notable film debut in Bush Christmas (1983). Kidman also met one of her best friends, actress Naomi Watts, around this time. The two were at an open call for a bathing-suit ad and later worked together on the 1991 film Flirting.

Here, the young actress poses in a promo shoot for her role in the teen caper BMX Bandits, showing off her natural redheaded curls.
