Nicole Kidman is the picture of perfection on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar’s February 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday, January 18!
I remember the first time I met Nicole Kidman. We were at a Golden Globes party in 2005 and—typical Hollywood story—we share an agent. I remember meeting this tall, beautiful woman who was there with her mom and dad. I was completely starstruck, while she was nothing but gracious. Nicole had just seen one of my rom-coms, as they call them, and was instantly kind and complimentary. I loved her immediately. We’ve run into each other over the years, keeping in touch. But it was Adam Sandler, of all people, who brought us together in Hawaii to film the comedy Just Go With It. Now not only do I have a dear friend, I can’t see myself dancing the hula with any other gal.
On hoping and praying to find someone like husband Keith Urban:
“I remember thinking, Oh, my God, if you ever gave me a man like that, I promise I would be completely devoted for the rest of my life. Something that wild. I remembered praying after I met him that I’d meet somebody, if not him, like him.”
On family versus a career:
“I like to ask people if they would rather have a great love that lasts a lifetime or an amazing career where you go down in history. Some people do answer that they want an extraordinary career.” FYI: Both Nicole and Jennifer said they would choose love!
On what she would tell her 20-year-old self:
“That you’re going to meet the love of your life. My whole thing, my whole thrust in life, was hoping I would.”
On Isabella & Connor vsiting Nashville:
They’re not crazy about Nashville. They’re so grown up now. I mean, they’re adults.
How Nicole almost ended up an Oregonian (we could be BFF Nicole, come on up!)
I was living out of suitcases when I met Keith. I suppose in the back of my mind I was waiting to meet somebody. And I wanted it to be that if that person didn’t live in New York or Los Angeles, I would be able to move. In the back of my head, I was thinking I may have to put my roots down somewhere. I was going to move to Oregon.
Jennifer A: Oregon? It’s gorgeous. I understand that absolutely.
It’s a very interesting article – read the rest here!
