It’s hard to imagine Nicole Kidman being self-conscious about anything. She is, after all, an Academy Award winner with a doting husband, four lovely children, and a porcelain complexion that hasn’t aged since she stepped foot on the set of Batman Forever some 20 years ago. But turns out, Kidman didn’t always love her fair skin.

“When I was a kid, I wanted to fit in more,” she tells us in an exclusive interview, when talking about the pressures of looking a certain way in Hollywood. Back in the early 2000s, sporting a tan as deep as Paris Hilton’s was all the rage in show biz, but Kidman never succumbed to that beauty ideal. “Originally, I didn’t have the choice of going brown, because my skin doesn’t tan… it freckles [laughs],” she says. “But as I got older, I started to like having the palest skin because it was different. I think embracing what makes you different is important.”

That’s one reason why her affiliation with Neutrogena makes perfect sense. (The actress joined the roster of brand ambassadors, alongside Kristen Bell and Kerry Washington, earlier this year.) “I basically just smother myself in the Ultra Sheer 100+,” Kidman says. “Protecting your skin is what really stops you from aging. Well, I don’t know if it’s about the aging so much as it is about having healthy-looking skin. Everybody wants to look the best they can, but at the same time you want to look real.”

And because the real truth is that no one should ever feel like they need to skip the beach, Kidman makes it a point to teach her kids all about sun protection. “I saw my mother apply sunscreen on herself and then on me, and that’s really how you learn, isn’t it?” she muses. That’s exactly why Neutrogena just launched its MimicMommy Movement, which encourages parents to tell by showing.

Of course, that isn’t the only beauty wisdom she’s passing on to her loved ones: “I use the Rapid Wrinkle Repair cream every night, which has retinol,” Kidman says. “I really do love it because it really works, and it’s not drying like some other retinols out there. I give it to my mom and to my sister. And yes, Keith has been known to use it [laughs].”

Nicole Kidman caused a stir earlier this year when she revealed for the first time that she was briefly engaged to rocker Lenny Kravitz back in the early 2000s.

Now, Kravitz’s daughter — and Kidman’s Big Little Lies costar — Zoë Kravitz is weighing in on the engagement coming to light, and opening up about what it was like almost having Kidman as a stepmom.

“I think she forgot that no one knew that,” Kravitz told The EDIT with a laugh. “I hadn’t seen her in a long time before Big Little Lies, but there was a point where we were all kind of living together. I was about 13, and she would take me to see movies; she was so nice to me.”

Kidman made the engagement public for the first time in another interview with The EDIT in February. Talking about working with Zoë, Kidman told the online magazine, “Well, I knew Zoë because I was engaged to her father. It’s all in the family! I love Lenny; he’s a great guy.”

Engagement rumors surrounded the stars’ romance in the early 2000s after Kidman’s divorce from Tom Cruise, and the Australian actress had previously admitted to being engaged between Cruise and her current husband Keith Urban.

“It just wasn’t right,” she told Vanity Fair in 2007 of the secret engagement, without revealing her former fiancé. “I wasn’t ready. We weren’t ready.”

However, the former couple remain pals. Kidman and Urban, who married in 2006, hung out with Kravitz backstage at the 2016 CMT Music Awards. They all exchanged hugs and posed for a group photo.

As for Zoë’s love life, the actress is currently in a relationship with 29-year-old actor Karl Glusman. “We’re happy, he’s wonderful,” she said.

On the red carpet of her premiere Nicole spoke with E! News about her plans for upcoming 50th birthday.

For Nicole Kidman, turning 50 is just another opportunity to spend quality time with her loved ones.

E! News caught the actress as she walked the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of The Beguiled, an upcoming thriller starring Kidman, Kirsten Dunst. Elle Fanning and Colin Farrell, where she revealed her surprisingly low-key plans for her June 20 birthday.

“[I want] to hang with my divine husband and my kids and my sister,” the almost birthday girl gushed. Nicole, of course, is married to country music king Keith Urbanand the longtime couple share two daughters, 8-year-old Sunday and 6-year-old Faith. Australian journalist Antonia Kidman calls Nicole her big sis, and is even traveling from the land down under to ring in the big day.

Kidman then explained, “I’ve already been to Australia and saw my mom and it’s too far for her to travel but my sister is coming over with all her children. She has six kids.”

So how exactly will Nicole commemorate the major milestone? She kept most details pretty hush-hush, though it seems the A-lister will most likely spend the day at home with friends, family and a delicious birthday cake.

“That’s it for me,” the Oscar winner shared. “I don’t need any big parties; I just need my family around me. If I have my family around me I am happy.”

Variety shares that David E. Kelley talked about the possibility of a second season of Big Little Lies.

“Big Little Lies” writer and executive producer David E. Kelley addressed the calls for a second season of the HBO series during Variety‘s A Night in the Writers’ Room event on Tuesday.

“We never planned on it,” Kelley said. “It’s possible. There’s a lot of talk and thought being put into it now, but it was not something we planned on. It was conceived as a one-off. In fact, it was a given going into it that it would only be one year because of the acting ensemble we had: Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Alex Skarsgård, Shailene Woodley. These are all people with big careers with a lot of projects lined up and they all had just one year deals.”

“We committed to this one thing as a complete picture,” he continued. “We didn’t have to conceive of future storylines and protect characters and make sure that they could be redeeming in any kind of perpetuity. We could be true to the story and true to the characters…The irony is the reason we assumed it would be a one-off, because of all this major talent, they’re at the forefront now of wanting that second season.”

While there are not currently any official plans for a second season, Witherspoon recently encouraged her fans to request that Liane Moriarty–who wrote the novel upon which the series was based–write more stories involving the “Big Little Lies” characters.

Along with Kelley, the Writers’ Room panel also included Kyle Bradstreet from “Mr. Robot,” David E. Kelley from “Big Little Lies,” Jonathan Nolan from “Westworld,” Jack Orman of “Shades of Blue,” and Graham Yost from “Sneaky Pete.”

Nicole was chosen for the Hollywood Reporter Annual Television Drama Actress Roundtable along with Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey, Jessica Lange, Chrissy Metz, and Elisabeth Moss.

Six complex women — also including Nicole Kidman, Jessica Lange, Elisabeth Moss and Chrissy Metz — debate the power and pain of strong females (onscreen and off-) amid a culture of discrimination in the industry and beyond: “I don’t think we’ve ever seen this much misogyny.”

When Oprah Winfrey decided to adapt The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks for HBO, she had two actresses in mind to play the role of Lacks’ daughter Deborah. But HBO Films president Len Amato wasn’t interested in her casting ideas: He wanted the media tycoon to be involved onscreen as well as off-. And after some heavy arm-twisting and a little time to get comfortable with the idea, Winfrey, 63, agreed — in part because the role allowed her to showcase, as she puts it, “a whole range of craziness.” It’s the opportunity to explore those layers of character and emotion that has drawn her and five other stars — Nicole Kidman, 49; Reese Witherspoon, 41; Elisabeth Moss, 34; Jessica Lange, 68; and This Is Us breakout Chrissy Metz, 36 — to work on television, as they revealed during The Hollywood Reporter’s annual Drama Actress Roundtable discussion on a Hollywood soundstage in May. “We have the opportunity to show the entire spectrum of human emotion that women have,” says Witherspoon, who, like Kidman, is a producer and star of HBO’s Big Little Lies. “We aren’t just the wives and the girlfriends. We are actually living, breathing people who have insecurities.” During the course of an hour, the six spoke candidly about the unexpected rewards and residue that come with inhabiting complicated women.

You have tackled ageism, sexism, misogyny, depression, domestic abuse, adultery and rape. When was the last time you were genuinely nervous to tackle a storyline?

OPRAH WINFREY (The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, HBO) I was genuinely nervous to take on the role of Deborah Lacks because look at this table. I come as the least experienced person at this table. I come as a person who has great respect for the craft of acting — and for years interviewing actresses and being inspired by actresses, but not developing the craft. I was really afraid to do that.

Afraid of what, exactly?

WINFREY I was afraid of making a fool of myself! (Laughter.)

NICOLE KIDMAN (Big Little Lies, HBO) That’s every day.

REESE WITHERSPOON (Big Little Lies, HBO) What are you talking about?! The Color Purple is so amazing.

WINFREY When was that? That was like 30 years ago now. And let me tell you what actually made me even more intimidated: I just finished doing a film with Reese and Ava DuVernay and Mindy Kaling [A Wrinkle in Time], and I just happened to ask Reese, “How many films have you done?” And you said, “Oh, honey child …” (Laughter.)

WITHERSPOON Do you all know how many movies you’ve done?

WINFREY You said, “I don’t know, 100 or so.” I was thinking, “Oh, God, I hope she doesn’t ask me because my number will be like, five, maybe?”

CHRISSY METZ (This Is Us, NBC) Oh, I’ve got you beat. I’ve done maybe one independent movie.

ELISABETH MOSS (The Handmaid’s Tale, Hulu) I don’t know if I was nervous about the scenes themselves, but [Margaret Atwood’s] book itself is so beloved, so that was my only hesitation. I wanted to make sure that we were going to do the book justice and do it in the way that it should be done or we were going to get in trouble. I don’t have any fear with scary stories. That’s what I want to do. But I took six weeks to say yes because I wanted to make sure we were going to do a good job.

WINFREY And how did you make sure?

MOSS I spoke to Bruce [Miller], our showrunner, for about an hour and a half. I was in Australia doing the second season of Top of the Lake with Nicole [at the time]. And then I spoke to Warren Littlefield, our EP, and to Hulu. I asked for the second script because I know the second script can be a little bit of a … (Laughter.)

WINFREY Everybody’s so excited over the pilot and then … yeah.
MOSS Exactly. Everyone spent 10 years on [the pilot], and then you get the second script and you’re like, “Really?! Is there a third one?” And then one night I was thinking about saying no. I just wasn’t sure what to do and I couldn’t sleep. I don’t know if anyone else does this, but if you’re thinking about taking a role, I pretend that I said no to see how that feels. I felt terrible and was super jealous of whoever did it and then I knew.

Kit Harington didn’t have the easiest ride on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Tuesday night.

Appearing on the special London episodes of Corden’s show, the Game of Thrones star was asked by actress Nicole Kidman if he had any plans to propose to his girlfriend, fellow actor Rose Leslie.

“Are you going to get married or…?” Kidman asked after Harington discussed moving in with Leslie. The Jon Snow actor didn’t answer, instead joking that he was being put on the spot by Kidman.

He added, “Step by step, step by step.”

But Kidman wouldn’t let him off the hook: “I’m just all about getting engaged and then living together,” she said.

Replied Corden: “You’re not one for pre-marital…?”

Watch the awkward encounter above.
