Actress Nicole Kidman dished out some political advice during an interview with the British media. Kidman, who holds dual citizenship in the United States and Australia, had a message for America: it’s time to accept reality.

“I’m always reticent to start commenting politically; I’ve never done it in terms of America or Australia. I’m issue-based,” Kidman told BBC Two in an interview. “So I just say, he’s now elected, and we as a country need to support whosever the president because that’s what the country’s based on.”

“Whatever, however that happened, he’s there, and let’s go,” she said.

Kidman has a history of donating to Democrat-leaning causes and described herself as “very, very committed to women’s issues.”

Her remarks stand in stark contrast to her colleagues in Hollywood like Meryl Streep, who gave a controversial, political speech at the Golden Globes. Other Hollywood celebrities like Katy Perry and Scarlett Johansson will head to Washington, D.C., for president-elect Trump’s inauguration to disrupt the transition.
