Born on this day


Sir, – You advised us (June 20th) that Nicole Kidman is 46. She is apparently famous for being married to Tom Cruise and Keith Urban. John Mahoney and John Goodman, two other actors who share this birthday, have their screen credits listed. You make no mention of her Oscar for The Hours or her roles in Moulin Rouge and Eyes Wide Shut among many others. She is, after all, only a woman, a mere appendage – fie o fie upon you! – Yours, etc,
