Faith is essential to Nicole Kidman. In an interview with Vanity Fair’s May 2019 issue, the 51-year-old Oscar winner discussed her deep trust in God and publicly declared her devotion to the Almighty. Kidman tells the magazine, “A lot of my friends mock me,” when she reveals that she, her husband, Keith Urban, and their two children, Sunday Rose, 10, and Faith Margaret, 8, often attend church services.
We are bringing up our kids that way,” she explains. “Keith believes in his own right, yet he still comes. I was reared in a religious household by a devoutly Catholic grandmother, which profoundly affected me. I wouldn’t say it’s absolutism. There’s always questioning – I’m a stubborn, feisty girl,” Kidman clarifies. Having no sense of judgment is crucial for me. My father’s favourite saying was, “Tolerance is essential.”
In November 2018, the actress discussed her childhood interest in entering a convent. “I am spiritual because I have firm faith in God,” she said to Allure then. Becoming a nun was a career I was interested in. I didn’t set out to follow in his footsteps, but I couldn’t help but feel pulled to it.
Unfortunately, those intentions didn’t pan out. Still, according to a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Kidman said that the phone policy she has in place with her two youngest kids (she has a son Connor, 24, and daughter Isabella, 26, with her ex-husband Tom Cruise).
When asked why she chose this, Kidman responded, “They don’t have a phone, and I don’t allow them to have an Instagram because I try to maintain some type of limits.” The highly anticipated second season of Big Little Lies will return to HBO on June 9.
