Watts and Kidman are Australian - they were just born overseas.
Kidman may be have alternative or supplemental citizenship (e.g., 'dual citizenship'), but if she was born in the United States, she will be considered a citizen of the United States of America. That is, unless she formally renounces that citizenship-something very rarely done. So, she may focus on her Australian citizenship, but she's a 'pocket' Yank. Speaking of Yanks and pocket and Kidman...
From Wikipedia on the matter:
In the case of United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898), the Supreme Court ruled that a person becomes a citizen of the United States at the time of birth, by virtue of the first clause of the 14th Amendment, if that person:
Is born in the United States
Has parents that are subjects of a foreign power, but not in any diplomatic or official capacity of that foreign power
Has parents that have permanent domicile and residence in the United States
Has parents that are in the United States for business
The Supreme Court has never explicitly ruled on whether children born in the United States to illegal immigrant parents are entitled to birthright citizenship via the 14th Amendment, although it has generally been assumed that they are.
Dunno how Watts' citizenship vis a vis Australia / UK would shake out.
