Nicole Kidman Encouraged Naomi Watts to Keep Motivated

Nicole Kidman travels to Los Angeles with her two adorable daughters Sunday and Faith on Friday (February 8) in Los Angeles.

The 45-year-old actress, Sunday, 4, and Faith, 2, were joined by hubby and dad Keith Urban!

Nicole‘s good pal Naomi Watts recently chatted about how Nicole kept her motivated when times were tough back in the 90s.

“She kept saying, ‘It’s just going to take one thing, one thing, Nay, and you know, if you’re in a hit film…then everything changes,” Naomi told CBS’ Sunday Morning.

Also pictured inside: Naomi at the 11th Annual Visual Effects Society Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel earlier this week in Beverly Hills, Calif.

15+ pictures inside of Nicole Kidman and her family heading through LAX Airport…

    Raising kids (2013)
    Sunny and Faith are being raised by Nicole in the same way she was brought up by her mother, Janelle Ann Kidman. Nicole recalled: “My mom made us believe that even as young girls, we could do anything (like allowing Nicole to “hit the clubs in Sydney by the time she was 14 and befriend the transvestites who frequented her favourite joints” – vanity fair 2002). She was also a big believer in not letting anybody break your spirit, and not bowing down and conforming (by encouraging me to sign a 10 year bearding marriage contract). I hope to give my (surrogate) children that same kind of (irresponsibility) strength. There’s a lot of peer pressure these days. A lot of young girls feel the need to conform (botox their face and have breast implants) to what society expects of them. It’s nice to not do that. You have to be (tough) wilful and (bitchy) spirited. I would prefer that to a very subservient child (like Keith).”

    What good parent allows their daughter of 14 to go to clubs?

    Naomi looks lovely, feminine and natural. Good mother, a career which is ticking along nicely and she gets positive reviews for her convincing work. Kidman jealous? You bet.

    Nicole is right. One hit film and you’re a somebody forever…. Ugh. I hope I’ll make it huge one day!

    @@:

    You obviously have been assigned to trash Nicole by the cult of Xenu. They forced her out of their lives any way they could. Did you never notice when they were younger if Nicole was in LA–Tom would take them to CO or NYC. If they were in NYC and Nicole was there, Tom would zip them back to LA? Has your feeble brain read nothing about Scientology? Especially the new books that are out now? One by a respected Pulitzer prize winner and the other by Miscavage’s niece? the only good thing that came out of the cult shoving Nicole out of the kids’ lives is that Katie learned and made a premptive strike. Nicole had no idea Tom would do this so she probably felt she didn’t need to petition for sole custody since they were awarded joint custody and each of them saw the kids until Tom once again caved to Xenu. But as a Xenu person yourself, you of course are blind and insane where she is concerned.

    Just Jared: You have one nut case using all of these different names. Do some checking !!!

    I agree, Nicole is a ‘suppressive’ person. By conveniently blaming xenu, she can try and suppress the truth about being an uncaring and emotionally absent mother in her adoptive children’s lives.

    Nicole tries to be a good mother, but I don’t think she knows how it’s done. I read she wanted to buy a house in France because Sunday had taken French there last summer, and she wanted her to continue. At four, let her be a child, not sitting in a dull French class, that comes later. This is the time for playing with other children, enabling her to grow up a well rounded woman, not being so shy she can’t relate to others! . I’ve never seen a photo of Nicole with the children while they were playing, only getting off and on planes. She’s missing their childhood. She remember what happened with Bella and Connor. History has a way of repeating itself. Keith loves those children and they love him. The photos of the children in his arms after they landed in Sydney last week were probably the most lovingl kid pics I’ve ever seen. She believes she has all the answers, but she doesn’t seem to have a clue about what’s real and what’s make believe. It’s a shame.

  • http://yahoo JoBeth

    I just read my comment, and I didn’t mean it to come across so harsh. Actually, I just think becoming a mother later in life is much harder than people think. Your own childhood is a long way past and it’s hard to remember ‘when’.

  • ..

    If you are “hitting the Sydney clubs at 14 and befriending transvestites” it sounds to me like Nicole didn’t have a normal childhood.

  • fenmore

    @JoBeth:

    What gossip site said she wanted a house in France? She’s never said that. There were recent photos of Nicole playing chase with Sunday and Faith on a swing. JJ didn’t publish them all.

    We see a fraction of their lives. How you can make presumptious statements off of nothing is beyond me.

    The troll here must be really upset with Keith’s successful Aussie tour, Nicole filming again with Colin. and the girls blossoming. Naomi still great friends with Nicole is another nail in the troll’s coffin.

  • fenmore

    @Em: You as a skeptic need to start a campaign against Naomi. In Movie 43 she and Liev Schreiber play over-zealous parents who homeschool their teenage son. In attempt to give him the full high experience they treat him like an outcast, shun him at their own party and Naomi, roleplaying a high school girl kisses him on the mouth and asks him if he has protection. If Nicole had taken this role you’d be crying pedophile, predator, unfit mother, and pervert. So I suggest you stop singing Naomi’s praises, lest you want to be seen as even more of a hypocrite and liar than you already are.

  • :$

    ‘Before I Go To Sleep’ … I must remember to do more staged ‘family reunion’ photo ops between Keith and the girls. The girls genuinely played their part well and generated some much needed positive publicity.

  • :$

    ‘Before I Go To Sleep’ … I must remember to NEVER try and attempt a staged ‘family reunion’ photo op between myself and the girls. It would be a PR disaster as the girls would run straight past me and fling themselves into the arms of their nannies.

  • SerenaL

    @JoBeth – your statement is the silliest I have read in quite some time. “I read she wanted to buy a house in France because Sunday had taken French there last summer, and she wanted her to continue. At four, let her be a child, not sitting in a dull French class, that comes later. This is the time for playing with other children, enabling her to grow up a well rounded woman, not being so shy she can’t relate to others!”

    Why would you assume the French school Sunday went to was “dull”? Where do you suppose French children go to school? Sunday could have easily been in class with French children, playing with French children and learning their language. comprendre?

  • TIM GUNN

    I ma amazed at eh level of inanity of the posters on this thread.

    The majority of you must live in your parents basements and haven’t seen the sun or a normal relationship in your lives.

    French ’24 hour day care’ school … how charming.

  • http://yahoo JoBeth

    Fenmore, sweetie. Nicole said in “Hello” magazine, that she wanted to buy a house in France, and Keith said ‘ noooooooo’. And in the same article, she talked about Sunday and the French class. I accept your apology. .BTW, any time that Keith does well anywhere is great in my book because I’m a fan (just a fan, not one of the loonies).

  • x

    Are you drunk Tim Gunn, because you’re slurring your words.

    ‘Before I Go To Sleep’ … I must remember to keep encouraging my ‘friend’ Naomi Watts to commit career suicide by suggesting we do a movie together … “We’re looking, somebody think of something, please!” pleaded Kidman.

  • :$

    ‘Before I Go To Sleep’ … I probably should remember to stop lying about no longer taking copious Botox shots to the face, because no-one is buying it.

  • Jill

    27, that was so nice to see Keith’s wedding ring so prominently on your blog.
    I think he was giving you a personal message.

  • Josh

    @JoBeth: You should be ashamed of yourself for that comment : “I’ve never seen a photo of Nicole with the children while they were playing, only getting off and on planes. She’s missing their childhood”.
    Just because we only see pictures of Sunday and Faith in airports means that Nicole is a bad mother?? Are you kidding? Nicole is doing a great job, protecting her kids from the paparazzi and all she gets is criticism from crazies like you who whine because they want more pictures. Who do you think you are to judge her like that?

  • x

    Looks like JoBeth has broken rank and dared to voice her own opinion and Josh is not happy.

  • Josh

    “Casper”, “x”,”..”, “@”, “XxXxX”,”:$”, “Em” must be a scientologist. That’s the only way to explain her constant, vicious attacks on Nicole Kidman. When is she going to be banned?

  • Josh

    @Em: Naomi is getting positive reviews for her convincing work? You don’t know much about Naomi’s career, do you? (or Nicole’s actually). Naomi’s latest movie “Movie 43″ is a total disaster. It got 5% positive reviews on RottenTomatoes. And Kidman’s next movie Stoker is getting 100% positive reviews so far.
    And Kidman has no reason to be jealous. She has an Oscar, Naomi doesn’t. She also has 3 Golden Globes (and 10 nominations), Naomi has only one nomination.

  • ..

    Watch out, sewer mistress has thrown a hissy fit and wants everyone banned.

  • Accountability.

    +5

    With Nicole Kidman having admitted recently, publicly, that she is happy to have her ‘face move again’, post Botox use, perhaps an apology is owed to those who were abused and ridiculed for making the very same observation at the time that she WAS using Botox muscle poison.

    It is all about authenticity. And accountability.

    btw … I think Naomi and Sienna could be sisters; they look very alike.

    No.42; Last night I dreamed that Naomi and a blond friend, who looked very similar, were skinny dipping in the Playboy mansion pool. As I watched them both from their famous underwater bar.

  • Love The Shoes

    Love them. Does anyone else think Faith looks amazingly just like Sunday?

  • http://Comcast Joni

    ..@. No we don’t want everyone banned, we know you are just one lunatic (Scientologist) writing this crap. Just Jared needs to stop allowing you to use all of these different names. !!!!!!!

  • Nola Bee

    @fenmore:
    True. I have noticed that some actors come off the worse on JJ sometimes because only the more negative looking photos of them are published and not the ones where they look happier even in the same shoot. Instead, we get the ones where they are answering a cell and look disconnected from their significant other or their children( Nicole K. and JLo to name a few)

  • CC

    Most of us appreciate seeing a really nice, happy family.

    The ones who write the crap apparently have no family to be proud of.

    Thats a fact jack

  • duh

    @Love The Shoes: Faith looks like Nicole who looked like her father at her same age. Sunday when a baby looked like Keith and Nicole until she grew into Keith’s facial features and got Nicole’s legs. Faith is more of a cherub looking child who will probably take more after Nicole and keep the reddish blonde hair. I think she won’t be as tall as Sunday as Nicole was quoted as saying post pediatrician visit for Sunday, Sunday was off the charts tall.

    This freak posting under many different names is not a Scientologist, but a jealous and obsessive Keuth Urban fan who believes her delusional posts will ruin Nicole and make Keith see the light and dump her.
