Nicole Kidman testified before a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Wednesday saying that she feels Hollywood has probably contributed to violence against women. She said women are portrayed as weak sex objects in the movies, according to the Associated Press.
The actress does not sign on to play those sorts of demeaning roles, according to the AP, saying, "I can't be responsible for all of Hollywood, but I can certainly be responsible for my own career."
Kidman promoted the International Violence Against Women Act in her role as a goodwill ambassador for the U.N. Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM). This legislation is being sponsored by Rep. Bill Delahunt, D-Mass who plans to reintroduce the legislation soon, since it has been stalled in the past.
