Nicole Kidman brought her critically-acclaimed film Lion home to her native Australia with the best company ever!
The 49-year-old actress was joined by her country star husband Keith Urban, who is also Australian, on the red carpet at the premiere of Lion held at the State Theatre on Monday (December 19) in Sydney, Australia.
Keith Urban has been very open about battling addiction throughout his life and now his wife Nicole Kidman is talking about how she has supported his sobriety.
The 49-year-old country singer checked into rehab for a problem with alcohol abuse in 2007, just four months after he married Nicole, 49.
When asked by People what advice she would give others going through what she did, she advise loved ones of an addict “to get help. To put your hand up, to reach out. There is absolutely help out there. You can’t save somebody, they’ve got to save themselves.”
Nicole says that lesson “is a very big thing for people like me who go, ‘I can take care of you. I can do it.’” She realized that she wouldn’t be able to do it all by herself and “at some point, you just have to say, ‘I love you and I’m here when you decide to do the work. If you don’t, then that’s it.’”
The 49-year-old actress was there to promote her new film Lion – which she just premiered the night before in New York City – but she couldn’t help but bring up her history with the host!
When Nicole made her first appearance on the show last year, she reminded Jimmy of the time he unknowingly turned down her advances at his apartment after they went on a date!
This time, Nicole went in for round two, reminding him of a second similar encounter.
“We were at David Fincher‘s house,” Nicole said. “I think it was David‘s house, and it was when Brad [Pitt] and Jen [Aniston] were still together, so it was a long time ago. And you could have asked for my number then because it was round two – well, second chance. And you still didn’t ask for it. And you know that’s true, so do not pretend.”
“My agent had said, ‘Jimmy‘s gonna be there, and you’ll see – he can ask for your number,’” she added. “It may kind of happen this way … We were kind of lurking in the kitchen. Everyone went out, and I’m waiting and waiting and waiting. And you’re at the buffet, and this is so true and you know it. And you still didn’t ask for my number, so you were so not interested.”
“The past is the past – let’s leave it that way,” Jimmy replied. “You’ve moved on; I’ve moved on. I’m over it.”
Nicole then brought out her husband Keith Urban – watch the video below to see what happened next!
