Keith Urban demands Nicole Kidman to avoid some male actors: rumor

Keith Urban is allegedly prohibiting his wife, Nicole Kidman, from working with certain male actors.

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman have been married for almost 15 years already. However, the Australian singer-songwriter is allegedly making it hard for his wife to find a new leading man for her upcoming movie.

Keith Urban controlling Nicole Kidman’s on-screen partner rumor

Nicole Kidman has worked with a lot of nice-looking actors over the course of her career. Among those she worked with were Tom Cruise, Colin Firth, Jude Law, Alexander Skarsgård, and Sebastian Stan. 

However, the Moulin Rouge star reportedly has a hard time finding a leading man for her movie The Silent Wife. Urban has reportedly made a Do Not Pick Him list when it comes to who Kidman could work with as leading men, New Idea reported.

The tabloid claimed that Firth, who starred with Kidman in The Railway Man and Before I Go To Sleep, and Skarsgard, who played as her abusive husband in Big Little Lies, were allegedly on Urban’s list. Lenny Kravitz, Kidman’s ex-fiance, is also on the list, the report added.

The outlet quoted an unnamed source who said Kidman knew her husband was half-joking with the list. The Aquaman star was reportedly aware that he struggles to watch her on the big screen with another guy. 

The tabloid added that it was difficult for Kidman to find a partner because everyone is half-committed due to the pandemic.

Rumor debunked

Gossip Cop examined the report and debunked it, saying it was “completely false.” The rumor-debunking site noted that the allegation that Keith Urban would have to approve or disapprove Nicole Kidman’s on-screen partner is not only super outdated but sexist, too.

The outlet also noted that there has been no meaningful update about the film since 2013. Eight years ago, Kidman announced that she would be producing and starring in the movie, but there has been no update since. Thus, Gossip Cop believed that the claim about the movie is most likely made up.

Nicole and Keith’s relationship

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are very fond of each other. The allegation that he is controlling her career is likely false.

In an interview with Glamour in November, the Bombshell star described her relationship with her husband as “very good.” She also gushed over Urban as a partner.

“It is a very soothing, comforting place for me to go, and he’s a very strong, warm, kind man,” Kidman said.

Kidman considered herself fortunate to find a man like Urban because it’s a “lonely world.” She added that it was an “extraordinary thing” to find Urban, and it was a beautiful thing to have him and their family.
