Despite being a famous actress, Nicole Kidman can be incredibly shy. Good thing she has Keith Urban for a husband! Nicole recently told Harper’s Bazaar that American Idol judge Keith Urban has really helped her to step out of her shell, something former hubby Tom Cruise was unable to accomplish.
Nicole Kidman has been on the cover of countless magazines, but now, the actress can add Harper’s Bazaar to the list. In one of her most revealing interviews to date, Nicole recently told Harper’s Bazaar all about her life with American Idol judge Keith Urban. The two have been married for six years now, and according to Nicole, those six years have been wonderful! “[Keith] just gave me confidence through just being very kind to me and understanding me, opening me up to trying things, my sexuality, those sort of things.”
Before her marriage to Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman attracted attention as the spouse of the thrice-divorced Tom Cruise. In the early years of that marriage, Nicole said that she was extremely anxious about making public appearances. “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.”
Her marriage to Tom Cruise may be over, but Nicole confesses to still being “deeply shy.” The actress feels that this inherent shyness has been particularly influential in her selection of significant others. She says she’s drawn to a “bigger, stronger personality” because, “everyone wants to feel someone’s got their back.”
We’re glad to know that at least one celebrity marriage is going well! Here’s to many more years of wedded bliss between Nicole and Keith!
