Nicole Kidman & Clive Owen Cover 'W' May 2012

Nicole Kidman strikes a pose in Prada with Clive Owen on the cover of W‘s May issue, on newsstands April 24.

Here’s what the Hemingway & Gellhorn co-stars had to share with the mag:

Nicole, on what attracted her to the HBO project: “I knew nothing about Martha [Gellhorn], but I’ve always been drawn to unique women who are willing to take on the world. The exciting thing about this film is that you see her discovering her nature. At the beginning, she’s a lot of talk. She knows that she’s either got to get her hands dirty and become what she pretends to be or she’s a fraud. In the end, Gellhorn out-Hemingways Hemingway.”

Clive, on sex scenes vs. scenes where he dies: “It’s much harder to do a death scene. You’ve got to do it convincingly, and it’s a huge thing to die [laughs]. Sex scenes are only hard if there’s no narrative conveyed through the sex scene. In the Hemingway film, the sex scenes have a story going through them. It’s part of who these people are and what they are.”

Nicole, on husband Keith Urban‘s throat surgery: “All of those things make you closer. It was sort of profound: to go without his voice, and then to finally hear his voice. What if he sounded different? I was there for his first words, and then we cried. How many people experience their husband’s first words? If that doesn’t bring you closer, you’re not breathing.”
