Paper Apologizes for Fake Kidman Quotes
Scotland's Daily Record admits the actress did not criticize Angelina Jolie
Scotland’s Daily Record has issued an apology to Nicole Kidman after publishing quotes it claimed she’d made about Angelina Jolie’s charity work.
“In an article published on Friday, Sept. 8, we attributed comments to Nicole Kidman in relation to Angelina Jolie. We accept that Ms. Kidman did not make those comments to us and we apologize for any upset,” the paper said in a statement and in print on Monday.
Kidman was quoted as criticizing Jolie, a United Nations goodwill ambassador, for getting undue attention for her charitable work.
“It’s not like Angelina is any better than a nurse working in a hospital, but she’s getting the publicity for her contribution,” the quotation read in part.
Kidman, who is an ambassador to UNIFEM, the United Nations Development Fund for Women, has a “tremendous admiration for Ms. Jolie and her tireless, worldwide charitable work,” a rep for the Australian actress said in a statement Monday.
