Hollywood actress Nicole Kidman, 54, stirred up a whole lot of controversy when she travelled to Hongkong from Sydney via private jet on August 12 without needing to undergo quarantine like everybody else.
At the time of her arrival, non-residents entering Hongkong from the Australian city were required to serve a mandatory seven-day quarantine in a designated hotel if they were vaccinated and had tested negative for COVID-19 within the past 72 hours. Unvaccinated individuals had to quarantine for two weeks.
However, the Oscar winner, who is in the region to film an upcoming Amazon Prime series called Expats, was spotted shopping in the Central area just two days after she landed.
She was also reported to be staying in a luxury residence on Victoria Peak that charges a monthly rent of HK$650,000 (S$113,000) instead of a dedicated quarantine facility.
