Nicole Kidman says her recent call for Americans to unite behind President-elect Donald Trump shouldn’t be misconstrued as an endorsement.

“I was trying to stress that I believe in democracy and the American Constitution, and it was that simple,” the Oscar-winning actress told “Access Hollywood.”

Mrs. Kidman, who has dual citizenship in Australia and the U.S., made headlines last week after she told BBC 2’s Victoria Derbyshire that Americans should accept Mr. Trump as their new president.

“I just say he’s now elected and we, as a country, need to support who’s ever the president because that’s what the country’s based on,” she said. “Whatever, however that happened, he’s there and let’s go.”

The “Lion” star’s comments sparked mixed reviews on social media, but she made it clear to “Access Hollywood” that she was done speaking about the topic.

When the interviewer pressed her for more details, she threw up her hands and said, “I’m out of it now. That’s what I said and it’s that simple.”
