“To have the opportunity to give jobs to 1400 people from July to Christmas is such a joy for me personally. We’re forging ahead when no-one’s making anything, and the world’s watching,” reveals Kidman, proudly.
Another source of pride is her upcoming HBO series The Undoing, in which Kidman plays a New York therapist who discovers her picture-perfect marriage (to Hugh Grant) isn’t what it seems when a violent death occurs. In real life and away from her troubled characters, Kidman insists her life is “very simple” and her marriage to Urban is indeed picture-perfect.
“I married into my heart. He just came along, and protected me. He’s loved me, given me confidence, and made me so much more comfortable. He knows who I am and he’s opened me up,” she says in a candid interview with editor Nicky Briger, in which Kidman also opens up about raising empowered daughters, championing her fellow female creatives and working on a Big Little Lies reunion with Reese Witherspoon.
