Nicole Kidman appeared bashful as she briefly covered her face with her hands during a new interview with CBS Mornings co-host Gayle King. The award-winning actress laughed as King brought up the photos that Kidman and her husband, country giant Keith Urban, shared when they celebrated their 15th anniversary.
Kidman and Urban tied the knot in June of 2006. The couple shared photos of one another on Instagram to mark their 15th wedding anniversary this past year. In sharing the throwback, King couldn’t help but ask for the story behind the photo that Kidman opted to share. Kidman, on the other hand, couldn’t help but chuckle at the differences between the photos she and her husband chose: “Keith’s was (a photo where) we’re in our pajamas. Mine was a little more…” she said, trailing off with a laugh. “What does that say about us?!”
Urban’s photo shows him hugging his wife as the pair smiles in front of a Christmas tree. They’re donning matching pajamas patterned with candy canes, gingerbread cookies and other festive items. “Happy anniversary babygirl !!!!!!! my life started when you said ‘I do’ 5475 days ago today,” Urban captioned with heart and rose emojis. Kidman, on the other hand, opted for a steamy photo of Urban licking her neck, adding a few lipstick-mark emojis to her own caption: “Happy Anniversary baby!”
Despite the differing anniversary posts, Kidman gushed to King that she and her husband fit together well: “We’re a mix. We’re very suited. I’m incredibly lucky to have met him. I met him — you know, as Lucy did, as Lucy met Desi — I met him later in life, and it’s been the most- the best thing that’s ever happened to me. That man is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”
Kidman joined King for a virtual interview to talk about her experience playing Lucille Ball — and Lucy Ricardo — in her new film, Being The Ricardos. Kidman played the comedy icon opposite Javier Bardem as Desi Arnaz. Earlier this month, Kidman won a Golden Globe award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture — Drama. When she won the award, Urban applauded his wife’s “spellbinding” performance.
Offering her well-wishes to Kidman, King pointed out that “Oscar nominations are coming up.”
So far, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed the shortlists of 10 categories for the 94th Academy Awards. Nomination voting continues until Tuesday (February 1). Nominations will be announced on February 8, and the Oscars will be held on Sunday, March 27.
