Nicole Kidman: Keith Urban Opened Up My Sexuality

Nicole Kidman: Keith Urban Opened Up My Sexuality

Nicole Kidman shows a hint of leg on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar‘s November 2012 issue, on newsstands October 23.

Here’s what the 45-year-old Paperboy actress had to share with the mag:

On early fame when she was married to Tom 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 her husband of six years, Keith Urban: “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.”

On not having a perfect body: “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.”

FYI: Nicole is wearing an Emilio Pucci gown and a Cartier cuff on the cover.

    I’ve criticized NK for not staying close to her adopted kids in the past but I now realize that I WAS WRONG and am sorry for it. We, public, don’t know enough to judge !

    And, as Tsquared said, if you look at pictures of her with Bella and Connor when Tom and Nicole were together you can really see how much she loved them. She’s really a loving mother of 4 ! course now Connor and Bella are teenagers so it’s normal not to see them with their mother as often.

    I don’t understand how she was chosen to play Grace Kelly. Charlize Theron or Diane Kruger would have been better.

    Love her! Really do and I think; believe she and Keith are going to be one of the rare HW couple success stories. Maybe it’s because they live in TN lol.

    GBSMITH Says:

    Grace Kelly’s own son highly approved for Nicole to play Grace. Her features are way closer to Grace’s, to me, than Charlize and for sure those other actresses everyone had mentioned. I think Nicole is perfect to play Grace. She seems to me so much happier and relaxed married to Keith than she ever was with uptight TC. I agree with Love The Shoes Commentor….I think she and Keith will be together a long time.

    Hey, if she found a different partner who was more patient and understanding and encouraging than previous partners, I think that’s great.

    Sometimes it takes a few tries to find the right sort of person for you. It’s not easy. The divorce rate is staggeringly high, so it seems many people have to keep working and working to find the right person to fit their personality.

    Throw in the fact that she lives a Hollywood existence, with all the hyper-criticism that women face to be perfect, and I would imagine it could be pretty damn daunting and hard to feel comfortable in your own skin.

    If she’s in her mid 40′s and finally coming into her own as a mature, confident woman, more power to her. And more power to her husband for being a good partner.

    I hope they stay happy for years to come. Life can be short – enjoy it while you can.

    Wow good for her! She deserved better than gay midget Tom Cruise. What a waste of her time that was. She’s such a gorgeous woman and it would’ve been a waste to stay with him any longer. Now she’s with a real man she can actually have sex with. Good luck Nicole and Keith may God bless you and your lovely children.

    @@: Jeesh! What a horrible thing to say.

    She seemed genuinely in love with Tom and he with Her – at least until it fell apart at the end.

    Gay Midget? What a childish bunch of name calling.

    Just not cool.

    @DB: agreed..she was with Tom for about 10 years and by her own admission she was very happy for most of those years…let see how long her current marriage lasts…and we all know how perfect everything can seem until it falls apart…take Heidi Klum and Seal for example…happiness is not guanranteed…
