Nicole Kidman Shares The Secret To Keeping Keith Urban Happy As Their 11th Anniversary Approaches

If there’s anything new to be gleaned from the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, it would have to come from Nicole Kidman, who had a total of four projects debuting at the event. Indeed, Ms. Kidman did share more, but not about those projects. Instead, the Big Little Lies actress revealed more about her personal life and the fairytale romance she’s enjoyed with husband Keith Urban over the past 11 years. As that anniversary approaches, Nicole reveals how she and Urban have kept their love alive for so long, which is certainly an accomplishment in Hollywood.

Nicole Kidman And Keith Urban Celebrate 11 Years Together

In the past, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have been at the center of their share of harsh rumors, but, as E! News shares, the couple has risen above it all and remained in love. In fact, Nicole hints that she and Keith have never been closer, as their 11th wedding anniversary quickly approaches.

Keeping their relationship from getting bogged down isn’t easy, says Nicole, but she suggests that one of the best things for them has been to limit their use of technology. Even in the age of social media and smartphones, Ms. Kidman says she and Urban try to keep long distance communications as personal as possible.

“Keith and I don’t ever text. We call. That’s just what we’ve always done. We’re old-school,” said the Big Little Lies star.

Nicole says she doesn’t exchange emails with Mr. Urban either. The couple tries to avoid impersonal exchanges as much as possible because they both feel that leads to a loss of intimacy in the relationship.

Last year, Keith Urban was on tour at the time of their anniversary, and Ms. Kidman was working on Big Little Lies, so they had to rely on FaceTime to connect for the special day.

Kidman didn’t go into detail about plans for the anniversary, but she did share her thoughts on what she might like to do for her impending 50th birthday.

“Keith and I might go on a hike with the girls. Or just go to the beach, swim, and be together.”

Nicole Kidman Admits Her Heart Is Ruled By “Intense Romantic Relationships”

Today reveals that Kidman delved even deeper into her own psyche to reveal that she’s the type of person to bond deeply with whomever she has in her life. As a mother, that means her maternal drive revs up, and she tends to go a little overboard, but that’s nothing compared to how Nicole deals with romantic relationships. Ms. Kidman confessed that she falls fast, hard, and loyally in every relationship.

“I’ve always chosen to have really deep, intense romantic relationships. I don’t flit around… I don’t dabble. That’s who I am, and my mother’s always said it: ‘You’re just a child who attaches.'”

Nicole shared that her love of love drives her in everything she does and she says she’ll support any cause that promotes feelings of love and human bonding. Citing one such example, Ms. Kidman revealed that she loaned out her Balenciaga wedding gown for an Australian wedding fashion show. The exhibit operated with a theme of “Love Is” and presented a number of nuptial outfits.

“It can heal so many things,” Nicole Kidman says of love. “Good love, sweet love, kind love, gentle love, powerful love. There are so many different forms of love, which then leads to loss, which then leads to all the primary emotions.”

Next up, Nicole Kidman can be seen in Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled, which also stars Elle Fanning and Kirsten Dunst. The Palme D’or-nominated film will hit theaters on June 30.
