It comes as Nicole recently revealed how her early days in Hollywood were possible thanks to some of her Australian friends.
The actress Academy Award winner told the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia in a recorded interview that she was supported by her good pals, Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness, even sleeping on their couch while auditioning for roles in Los Angeles.
‘[Deborra-Lee] was one of my best friends,’ the Dead Calm star said, adding that the fellow actress always gave her a place to stay when she flew in from Australia.

‘[I slept on the couch] in the house that Deborra-Lee was renting, and she gave the chance to stay there and we could go and audition,’ Nicole said.
‘It was expensive, we couldn’t afford hotels, so the idea of being in hub out of a house together, was really, I mean, my god.’
She added: ‘You’d go and come back and you’d go over for a few weeks and do some auditions and hope to crack it.’
Nicole has previously revealed how Deborra-Lee, 66, and Hugh, 53, helped her after her divorce from Tom Cruise in 2001.

‘When I got divorced, Hugh and Deb were so much a part of my healing,’ she said in a candid interview with Australian Women’s Weekly.
‘They were some of my best friends through that period,’ she added.
Like Nicole, Hugh and Deborra-lee were among a small group of budding Australian actors living in Hollywood in the 1980s.
Deborra-lee was the first to meet Nicole when she was ‘couch surfing’ in Los Angeles as a teenager before being cast in Days of Thunder, where she met Tom.
‘I do remember Tom Cruise ringing the house when she landed the role [in Days of Thunder]. Nic was always very cool and took it all in her stride,’ Deborra-lee said.
After splitting with Tom, 59, Nicole went on to meet her second husband, Keith Urban, 54.
