Nicole Kidman Says It Was 'Hard' To Come Home After Tough 'Big Little Lies' Scenes

Reese Witherspoon strikes a pose alongside her co-star Nicole Kidman while attending their For Your Consideration panel for their hit HBO series Big Little Lies held at the DGA Theater on Tuesday (July 25) in Los Angeles.

The 41-year-old actress and Nicole, 50, were joined at the event by their co-star Alex Skarsgard and director Jean-Marc Vallee.

Nicole opened up about shooting some of the emotionally draining scenes in Big Little Lies, and how she relied on the support of her husband, Keith Urban, after long filming days.

“Because we were shooting for so long… I think the duration of [the production] slowly started to seep in. Normally I can step back into my family life in a very easy way. I mean, not always, but you know, usually. I’ve been working a long time now,” Nicole expressed at the event (via ET). “But it was hard. I came home to loving arms. Luckily I have a partner who is artistic so he understands what it takes to support that. [He] would hold me, and I was really upset at times. Really damaged and really upset and physically and emotionally drained and in pain… Luckily I have that at home and I also have people I can talk to and get it out.”

FYI: Nicole is wearing Proenza Schouler.

    poor nicole getting fake beat up. she’s clueless.

    Is she still talking about this? It was months ago darling, gladly she will lose that emmy.

    Nicole’s milking this for everything she can. All of the entertainment shows were showing last night’s BLL LA opening. She and Skarsgard were being cutsie, arms around each other and kissing. Keith, as usual, wasn’t there. She said he had a concert, but if so, it wasn’t scheduled. That marriage isn’t going to sustain another year of BLL and all its ramifications, so I guess we’ll see where Nicole’s priorities really are – it will be interesting because she’s said loud and clear, that she’d leave everything for the sake of her family.

  • Jean

    This is total bull. BLL It’s up for 16 Emmy awards. Nicole is not milking anything she’s deserving as the cast is of these awards. Nicole and Alexander were not hugging and kissing as you apply. She did hug him once and that was it. She never said Keith had a concert. He has one tonight. Since they killed off the character of Perry, Alexander Skarsgard will not be in the sequel. So what other stories do you have under your belt that are false.

  • Jean

    She was only trying to portray what really happens in life. She spoke to many women of domestic abuse and tried to portray them respectfully.

  • 1MzLiz

    I think it would be a prequel. Also, I don’t think you saw the same evening news that I watched. When asked about Keith, she said that he had a concert. I knew that his concert was in California tonight, so thought it was strange he wasn’t at the BLL affair. Concerning the stories under my belt, I’m a worrier. I don’t want those little girls to end up the products of another divorce, living in Hollywood among the other kids just used for publicity shots.

    You’re really desperate to post anything false, aren’t you? Keith WAS INDEED ATTENDING the Big Little Lies premiere in LA on Feb. 7, 2017! Google his name and the date and voila- he’s right there, hugging his gorgeous wife NICOLE KIDMAN with HUGE SMILES, too! For 12 years now, people like you and fan27 have attacked the Urban marriage, to no avail. All you do is make them more determined to PROVE that they “married for a lifetime,” as both Nicole and Keith have said many times. Get over your anger and vitriolic attacks, it only makes you UGLY!

    Wowsa, 79 days went by since my former post !
    But my heart was never ever gone from you, Reese !
    I had no time for making any posts.
    Now my PC still works too slow here at jared. But only here.
    Reese, you´re looking F A N T A S T I C !!! (Kiss-Kiss!!)² !!!!
    BLL is a very good series !!!

    Reese & Nicole have both deserved an Emmy for Best Actresss !!

    “A Wrinkle in Time” is a magic movie !
    Makes me remember my astral journeys to Reese !
    PSI-Touch-I Foreverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !!!
    (And good dreams or even astral journeys are worth it to be
    repeated too, I think)

    At the 2.7.2017 (Sunday) I had a lucid dream (or OOBE ??):
    I was together with Reese. First we have been on a party and
    talked a lot. And there was something to drink.
    Later we played table tennis at her home. She had
    very cheap table tennis rackets.I told her, that a table tennis racket
    needs more “grip” to play faster and to play with more spin.
    I let the table tennis ball fly via psychokinesis from the ground into
    my hand. I loved hungig up with you in that “dream”.
    [Hopefully it was a wrinkle in time instead of a normal dream]
    [Hopefully it was a paranormal event]
    Whenever I´ll see the movie Home Again,
    I will always sing:
    ” I will always love you,
    I will always love you, Reese !”
    Folks, wisdom needs to be repeated:The
    younger the women are, the more they look up to
    female idols at movies. At a certain age their
    selfconvidence is great enough to leave these
    idols behind them. Most of them, not all, of course !
    always a matter of selfconfidence. And selfconfidence depends on being
    successfull in certain things – like the job. like being married
    happily, like being sporty and healthy and so on, like feeling secure
    financially, like feeling protected effectively, like feeling loved the
    right way.So you´re right with your wisdom about
    female idols for women in movies, Reese. Coz´ there are
    women, who still haven´t found what their are looking for.
    (You can sing it like that similar verse of that U2 song)
    1000-SUNS-POWER-FOREVERRYou´reAnAngelForMyHeart, Reese !
    All siddis for Reese and Mindy Kaling too !
