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.

    Keith will never say it but I ‘ll bet he wishes Nicole would just shut the f— up.

    She either repeatedly mentions tom cruise in interviews because she knows his name generates her publicity, or she is being paid to continue the charade that they had a normal heterosexual marriage. Make no mistake, Kidman is cunning.

    As long as Nicole has a film to promote, or there’s a quick dollar to be made, she will continue to drop the Cruise name to generate herself publicity.

    Wouldn’t it be refreshing if Nicole did an honest interview and revealed the following:

    1. My marriage to Cruise was not conventional. He required a public foil for his homosexuality and I am an extremely ambitious actress, who was offered and willingly accepted a contract, which gave me unprecedented exposure in hollywood and around the world.

    2. Part of the reason my two eldest children have virtually nothing to do with me is because I was not a great mother. Funnily enough, Tom has much better parenting skills than me.

    3. Even though we divorced over 10 years ago, I continually mention Tom in interviews because I know his name will generate me publicity.

    4. I am terrified of losing my looks and that is why I obsessively exercise and botox my face to eradicate any signs of ageing. Breast and cheek implants, skin bleaching, etc. I will do whatever it takes to remain desirable and relevant.

    5. My life is far from perfect. My ambition is so overwhelming and in my desperation to remain in the public eye and make even more money, I work continually … consequently, there is very little time left over for my family.

    6. I am not shy. Actually I am quite cunning, controlling and very high maintenance.

    7. I have been deliberately misleading the public for years and I apologise.
