My sister and I disagree about where Nicole Kidman was born. Was it Australia or England?
—Frances Mitoma, Torrance, Calif.

Neither. Kidman, 40, was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. She and her parents later relocated to Washington, D.C., before finally settling in Sydney, Australia, where "Nic" grew up. Guinness World Records lists her as the highest-paid actress ever in a commercial; she received $3.71 million for appearing in a spot for Chanel No. 5 perfume.
