Nicole Kidman Remembers Praying for a Man Like Keith Urban
Jennifer Aniston interviews her friend and ‘Just Go With It' co-star Nicole Kidman for the February issue of Harper's Bazaar, and while the two actresses chat about various topics, Kidman's marriage to Keith Urban is covered at length.
Kidman has lived part time in Nashville for the past five years with country star husband Urban and their daughter, Sunday Rose. She explains that when she met Urban, she was living out of suitcases, and in the back of her mind she knew that she was waiting to meet somebody special.
“I wanted it to be that if that person didn't live in New York or Los Angeles, I would be able to move. In the back of my head, I was thinking I may have to put my roots down somewhere ... not have to live in Los Angeles," Kidman tells Aniston. "So it was fortuitous that Keith happened to live in Tennessee. He brought me down to this place called Leipers Fork, just outside of Nashville, very lush and rural. I just went, 'Ah.' You know how you dream as a girl? I'm one of those people. I would meet a guy, then I would imagine myself married and with kids within the first hour. But it worked out.”
Kidman and her handsome husband first met in Los Angeles in Jan. 2005 at an awards dinner, where Urban saw her walk into the room and couldn’t take his eyes off her. Kidman had just watched him on 'Oprah,' and remembers thinking, “Oh my god, if you ever gave me a man like that, I promise I would be completely devoted for the rest of my life. Something that wild. I remembered praying after I met him that I'd meet somebody, if not him, like him.”
When Aniston asks Kidman what the hardest thing about being an actor is, Kidman says, “Fame. It's a great thing in the sense of the opportunities it gives you, but you don't realize that you're dancing with the 100-pound gorilla. People can be supportive and then turn around and be so mean. But at the same time, we're in an extraordinary place, and to complain about it you go, 'Ugh, move on.'”
Aniston's interview for the magazine ends with a more personal question: "Does Keith buy you clothes?" Kidman's answer: "Yeah, and he buys me lingerie.”
