Nicole Kidman Talks About Her Kids, Family Life In New Harper’s Bazaar

Wow! Nicole Kidman looks drop-dead gorgeous on the cover of the latest Harper’s Bazaar, doesn’t she? In a new interview with the magazine, the Hollywood actress and celebrity mom talks about how she juggles her career with her family life and even talks about her marriage to Tom Cruise. Here are some highlights of what she says:

The early years with Tom Cruise: Her career began an upswing, and later that year she met Cruise on the set of Days of Thunder. So started the period she now refers to as “fame by association.” 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,’ ” she recalls. “And I was shy. Deeply shy. I didn’t feel comfortable at all. But I felt very comfortable at home.”

The mythical work-family balance: “I’d love to say that it’s easy, but it isn’t. I miss them so much when I’m away. And so I limit the amount of time away through no other reason than I just love, I love them. But that’s my personality. I get 3 A.M. panics because I’m so attached.”

Her family, being married to Keith: “Time goes by so fast now, and having raised two little kids who are now adults and two new children in the world, it’s fleeting.” However, she has found permanence in her relationship with Urban. The couple, who met in 2005, have been married for six years. “He just gave me confidence,” she observes, “through just being very kind to me and understanding me, opening me up to trying things, my sexuality, those sorts of things.” After the adventure of Cruise, she characterizes Urban as “more like an ocean; he took me out.” She has always appreciated “a bigger, stronger personality; that’s what I’ve been drawn to. I need protection. Everyone wants to feel someone’s got their back.”
