Nicole & Keith Don't Look 'Distracted'

Nicole & Keith Don't Look 'Distracted'

Nicole Kidman and hubby Keith Urban look happier than ever together, holding hands and walking into the world premiere of Distracted starring Rita Wilson at the Mark Taper Forum on Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles, Calif.

Nicole is expected to arrive in Sydney, Australia next week for pre-production on her new film Australia. Her co-star Hugh Jackman is already in town.

Keith recently opened up to UK’s The Sunday Telegraph:

  • On wanting children of his own:”I am looking forward to fatherhood. I have always wanted to be a good dad. My brother’s got two kids and he’s an excellent dad and I think we both have that sense of being home and being solid family guys.
  • On being a stepfather to Nicole’s two adopted kids, Isabella and Connor: “I don’t get to see the kids as much as probably a lot of stepdads would, but it is a good relationship.”
  • On turning 40 in October: “It feels just right. I don’t feel what I thought that wretched age was going to be like. I have done a lot of things and it has been full up to this point, especially the last few years, so I am grateful for that.”
  • On his marriage to Nicole: As far as being a married man, it is the best thing I have ever done. And it is not just about being married; to me, it is about being married to her, to that woman because she has just saved my life — absolutely saved it. Everything happens for a reason so the timing of that (rehab) was divinely inspired.”
  • On being forced to cut short their January holiday on the NSW South Coast in after a run in with Australian paparazzi: “Because Nic and I are so private, it tends to make people want to see what that privacy is really all about. If we were plastered in the magazines all the time and sort of got pictures willingly, it would wear off and probably people wouldn’t want them so much. The fact that we actually go out of our way to be a bit more elusive tends to exacerbate the situation but I would just rather have a more quiet life, like we do. It is relatively quiet compared to most, I think.”

    Thanks JJ! I love Nicole Kidman and Keith is growing on me! Thanks for covering them.

  • Juno

    Best wishes to Keith and Nicole. :)

  • Patti

    Keith looks good…but not terribly happy. Kidman, as usual, has her lips all plumped up and is holding her head down like she’s ashamed to be seen with him. She’s going to a premier…can’t she hold her head and smile for a photographer? She looked ridiculous coming out of the Clapton Concert and now, she looks equally silly.

  • ISA

    wonderful! wonderful! wonderful

  • Mary

    The best couple from Hollywood!

  • anon

    Nicole will never again look the way she did during those Tom Cruise days…sigh.
    I miss her old self, but if she’s happier now, then I’m happy for her & Keith.

  • Rachel

    On being a stepfather to Nicole’s two adopted kids, Isabella and Connor: “I don’t get to see the kids as much as probably a lot of stepdads would, but it is a good relationship.”

    To me that sentance says a lot. You hardly see Nicole with her kids but yet you see Katie with them all the time. While this is good for a healthy relationship with the stepmother what about the relationship with their actual mother. I just think it’s sad.

    I don’t know what the custody arrangements are between Tom & Nicole but you would think that Nicole would want to spend equal time with them.

  • pam

    Keith doesn’t look too happy to me.

  • Love

    Respect the children, they are not in the pictures.
    Keith and Nicole, you are beautiful together.

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    no matter how much botox nicole uses, she will still be gorgeous
    [Hmmmmm 'far and away' - memories]

    that keith is such a DownGrade from Tom. these 2 aren’t even the 10th best couple in Hollywood. lol (and it isn’t nicole’s fault)

  • Reatty

    They are always holding hands. That is so sweet. His words say it all. Nicole saved his life…

  • Juno

    Patti Says:
    And what? You look better? Eventually all of us gets older wether we like it or not. And they know that. It’s not like they are pim-ping themselves out there.
    pam Says:
    Did it ever occur to you, that he’s probably just had it with the paps as well? Read his interview.

  • Stephanie

    Ohmygosh! What wonderful photos! They both look absolutely great! Keith doesnt look happy at all but I can see why! It’s because of the stupid shutter bugs! But oh well at least he doesnt complain about them. Im not trying to spread rumors but in that last pic it kind of looks like Nicole could be pregnant but I think it’s just the way her shirt is that is making her look bigger in the stomach. But what fabulous photos though.

  • Ick

    damn that hair. she needs to tame that wild be beast on her head.

    I forgot she even had kids… I bet she did too.

  • Juno

    [Fug Face Maniston] Says:

    Downgrade from TC? I don’t think so….. In spite that KU has to lick the battle of the booze, and that says a lot for a guy to admit that and go to rehab, it’s obvious Nicole is happier. Her man is trying, unlike TC who is an intense control freak and fanatical scientologist. That is the worst! I feel sorry for KH.

  • COGirl

    Can someone PLEASE tell me what makes these two so newsworthy????? Prior to Keith Urban, you didn’t see Nicole Kidman much in the tabs anymore at all. Prior to Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban was a PRIVATE man. I don’t find anything newsworthy whatsoever about these two to be in the tabloids every flippin’ week. I guess if you’ve got millions of dollars to tip off the paps and pay them handsomely, people will think you are newsworthy. I’m not buying it. Nicole and Keith – PLEASE GO AWAY. You’re not newsworthy!

  • Vanessa

    This couple is adorable.

    A LOT OF LOVE!!!!!

  • maxine

    I think Keith looks good, he doesn’t have to grin like an idiot (or Cruise) for the photogs. They’re going to a movie premiere so they KNEW there would be photogs present and it’s completely normal at a movie premiere. This is not about invading their privacy so I don’t understand why she has to make a spectacle of it though with her head low, pretending to be all shy and bothered instead of acting normal. Maybe she was trying to cover those freshly plumped lips? I agree that it’s a revealing sentence about the kids. I guess she pretty much gave up them up to this lunatic. Sad

  • Tanel


    Thank you! (in Swahili)

    Always love seeing Nicole!!!

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    Juno, keith who?!? he’s a nobody. Lame

    TC can be a “intense control freak and fanatical scientologist”! that is still better than be a F-ing ‘abc’ – alcoholic b-list celebrity.

    Nicole was in love with the guy for a reason, and KH as never been more popular.

  • A demure wife is hard to find.

    Nicole is not ashamed, she’s trying to be the demure bride. Everyone knows she wears the pants in the relationship but she doesn’t want to rub it in Keith’s face that’s why she does the walking one step behind, looking down move. It gives him the illusion that he’s a mighty, mighty man.

    You Jane

  • Tess

    I agree with Rachel, his statement about the kids speaks volumes. You rarely see her with her children and as a parent that bothers me.

    Maybe, since he’s better they can do some bonding with the kids.

  • Vanessa



    why you are seeing these pictures?????
    it is ridiculous….
    Nic and Keith, you are wonderful!!!!!!!!!

  • Tom’s Fault

    Maybe you don’t see her with her children because Tom won’t let her. He probably doesn’t want his children spending time with an Alcoholic (albeit a sober one)

    Does she really leave in Texas? I don’t see her as the Texas type, I think it’s just a way to connect with the little people. I miss the old Nicole, she was more approachable.

  • Daisy

    Man am I reading a lot of jealous comments here. They don’t tip the paps. Read keith’s comments. They try to be as private as possible. They go a lot of places without photogs seeeing them.

    why you are seeing these pictures?????
    it is ridiculous….
    Nic and Keith, you are wonderful!!!!!!!!!


    Because I happened to come to this site and wala!! There they are again!! Wow! It’s so newsworthy to see Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban coming out of a theater. Big friggin’ deal!

    And Daisy: They don’t tip the paps? Are you KIDDING me? How naive are you???

  • Jade

    I think they look nice together.I’m glad to see Keith looking healthy now.I wish them the best!

  • Vanessa

    Care with the envy…
    it is a disease.

    A lot of love for Nic and Keith!!!!

  • COGirl

    Get a grip Vanessa – I’m certainly NOT envious of those two. I like my private, personal life just the way it is. I have no desire to be famous and to be putting my entire life on display for the entire world to see, regardless of whether it’s newsworthy or not.

    I’d have to say be careful with the worshipping celebrities – that’s a worse disease!

  • paul

    How many actors DRINK in Hollywood?
    Almost all.


    Congratulations, Keith.

  • Vanessa


    Nic and keith are happy, beautiful, wonderful, rich.

    peace for you.

  • Daisy

    COGirl, I am not naive at all!!! Look at the original pictures at there are more celebrities then just them there. This was a world premiere of a play!!! Jared just chose to only use the ones of Nicole & Keith because apparently Jared likes to post pictures of Nic & Keith. This is Jared’s website, his decision. He could have posted more of the other celebs as well.

  • Daisy

    To answer “Tom’s Fault” No Nicole does not live in Texas. They live a lot of the time in Tennessee. A way to connect with the “ittle people?” Nashville has some of the most well known people in the music industry living there. It is not exactly the back woods.

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    Tom = always with his kids.

    I like Nicole [God I wanna bang her!!!] but i honestly cant remember the last time I’ve seen her and the kids together.

  • cassie

    Love Nicole’s jacket! Keith looks like he’s just stepped off the plane from Oz.(He was pictured in that shirt on Friday in Sydney)

  • Daisy

    He has been home since early Friday in the States. They are a day ahead of us.

  • Susan

    he is getting chubby

  • darling

    His hair looks clean for a change. Pretty and talanted couple. I’d much rather see these two than no talent Paris Hilton and her latest boy toy.

  • J.H.

    It takes a big man to say that his wife saved his life. It also takes an honest man to say “I don’t get to see the kids as much as probably a lot of stepdads would, but it is a good relationship.” …..he is telling the truth. If there was something wierd or off about Nicole’s relationship with her kids would he have said that statement? His remark states ….the way it is frankly. If there was anything to hide he would not have made that comment. He spoke openly about the kids/relationship. I think Nicole see’s her kids more than anyone knows and so Keith doesn’t need to cover up for her lack of “mothering”.

  • maxine

    Well, Keith pretty much said he doesn’t see them much at all so, unless Nicole doesn’t live with him much either, she doesn’t see the kids much. I think he was being honest about it and I wish Nicole worshippers stopped with “she protects her kids from the photogs” refrain. If she can protect her kids so well, how come she can’t protect her honeymoon, rehab or St. Bart’s vacation “intimate” pictures from being taken? This was a movie premiere photographed by getty, not a paparazzi assault at poor, shy, “demure” Nicole. Everybody else there behaved naturally, smiled at the photogs or simply walked by. I don’t understand why she has to put on a fake “I’m so shy” act when she’s almost 40. I have a feeling that Keith may not be fully aware of the degree of media manipulation he’s subjected to.

  • kiti

    Love this couple. All things considered, they manage to stay grounded.

  • cheeky

    I hope this is a REAL marriage as opposed to the CONTRACT she had with tiny tom!! My gut tells me this won’t last.

  • Heidi

    She definitely tips off the paps. They just happened to be there EVERY time she visited him in rehab. Please, Nicole Kidman is the queen of media manipulation. She is also the most overrated actress in Hollywood.

  • Mondo Bongo!

    Whatever~~~ ^^^^^^

    I wish Nicole & Keith happiness!!!!

  • Marcus

    She looks so stupid with her head down. He looks like he’s leading a blind woman. She is not normal.

  • GP

    I think they are great. I admire them both for their talent, but mostly for their charity work. They are both beautiful. I do know Keith is hot and anyone seeing him in concert will be a fan by the end of the evening. I think Nicole is an amazing actress. I have blue eyes and flashes from cameras really bother me, imagine dozens of flashes in a row.

  • JoAnn

    As always, the naysayers will find every chance to smear Nicole and Keith. He said “*I* don’t get to see the children as often”, not “we”. That’s understandable as he was in rehab for a long period of time. Nicole, on the other hand, could easily have gone off to see her children.

    He is definitely a step UP from TC!!!

  • katieee

    WOW they loook adorably fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nicole is beautiful what ever people say.. they are just jealous. and Keith is a star!

    perfect couple!!! happy days to the aussies best =D


  • drewjones

    They can stay in hiding forever. At least this time NK isn’t on a contract or being paid for being married and playing the beard…….
