Nicole Kidman Speaks on Keith Urban, Sexual Freedom

by at . Comments

Nicole Kidman is no longer the shy woman of her youth. She makes that very clear in a new interview with Harper's Bazaar.

Asked about husband/American Idol judge Keith Urban, the actress tells the magazine:

“He just gave me confidence through just being very kind to me and understanding me, opening me up to trying things."

"My sexuality, those sorts of things.”

Oh. Okay then.

Elsewhere, the Oscar winner touches on fashion, pregnancy talk and, of course, Tom Cruise:

On her personality when married to Cruise: “In those early years, it was like, ‘I’m here and I’m clutching onto your arm, and it all feels a little overwhelming and really strange. And I was shy. Deeply shy. I didn’t feel comfortable at all. But I felt very comfortable at home.”

On body image and pregnancy rumors: “All of that other stuff becomes less important. Like, I’ve always had a little belly. I mean, now that I’m 45, they don’t say, ‘Oh, she’s pregnant!’ as much. But I’ve got skinny arms and legs, and then I’ve got a little belly.”

On red carpet fashion: "I make sure to wear comfortable dresses because I want to be able to go out afterward and, you know, bend."
