Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman have been married for 14 years, and they’re still in love more than ever. Throughout their marriage, both of them have been supportive of each other’s careers.
Nicole Kidman has been acting since the 1990s, while husband Keith Urban is a renowned singer, songwriter, and record producer.
On Sunday’s episode of Australian 60 Minutes, Keith Urban revealed that there’s one role Nicole Kidman played that was “very heavy” to watch. He always had to remind himself that his wife is “just acting.”
Keith Urban fear
Nicole Kidman’s character, Celeste Wright, on the hit HBO drama series Big Little Lies, made Keith Urban feel so afraid for his wife.
When asked how he felt watching Kidman confront domestic violence scenes on the show, Urban replied, “It’s hard to tell your soul that she’s an actor and she’s acting.”
He complimented his wife by saying, “It was heavy to watch because she’s so bloody good at acting.”
Celeste Wright, on Big Little Lies, is a retired lawyer. She gave up her career to raise her twins, Max and Josh. On the show, Celeste yearns for a sense of purpose that being a lawyer gave her.
Though she and Perry Wright, played by Alexander Skarsgârd, had been married for years, they act like affectionate newlyweds in front of people. But behind closed doors, her husband is physically and emotionally abusive.
The two are locked in a vicious and unbreakable cycle of abuse and affection.
The first two seasons of Big Little Lies explored the couple’s disturbing and challenging marriage.
Perry and Celeste even went to a couple’s therapy to salvage their marriage.
Their scenes have always been heavy to film that Kidman and Skarsgârd, reportedly, always “reconnect as friends” after filming.
Speaking to Vanity Fair in 2017, Skarsgârd revealed, “We made a point of checking in with each other, giving each other a hug.”
“Nicole is an incredible partner because she is so generous and so open,” he said. “It makes it easier as an actor when you have a partner like that.”
It’s unclear whether Big Little Lies will be back for a third season.
Nicole Kidman supports Keith Urban from afar
Thankfully, Nicole Kidman’s marriage to Keith Urban is far different from real life.
The Oscar-winning actress even posted a sweet Instagram video that featured her husband on her laptop from Australia. At the same time, Urban hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards in Nashville last Wednesday.
People Magazine reported that Kidman is currently working on Nine Perfect Strangers for Hulu.
