Nicole Kidman says it’s time to support Donald Trump, just as we should support anyone who becomes president.

“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 News earlier this week when asked her thoughts on the president-elect. “I just say he’s now elected and we as a country need to support whoever the president is, because that’s what the country’s based on.”

The dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia posted a photo last November alongside husband Keith Urban sporting an “I Voted” sticker, The Hill reported.

The 49-year-old “Lion” star added that regardless of how the Donald came to be president, it’s now time to move forward.

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

Among the issues she cares most about is women’s rights, she added.

“I’m very, very committed to women’s issues in terms of I do a lot of fundraising for U.N. Women and I do a lot of traveling for them,” said Kidman, who is also a United Nations Women goodwill ambassador. “I also do an enormous amount of fundraising for breast and ovarian cancer, because that’s something that’s affected my family deeply. … So they’re my issues that I’m very attached to.”
