Will Nicole Kidman and Husband Keith Urban Ever Collaborate On-Screen?
"I don’t think that having a cameo on one of my projects would interest him, to be honest," Nicole Kidman told reporters of husband Keith Urban
Kidman — who won the award for outstanding performance by a female actor in a television movie or miniseries at Sunday night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards for her role in Big Little Lies — said she doesn’t expect her husband get into the acting game.
“Any chance I can, I will acknowledge what he does because he really is so kind, and I don’t think that having a cameo on one of my projects would interest him, to be honest,” she told reporters in the press room during the awards show. “I sleep with him!”
The 50-year-old actress also gushed about her husband of over 11 years, who is no stranger to TV as a former American Idol judge.
“He’s my biggest supporter,” she said. “I’m so fortunate to have such an incredible partner in life.”
During her acceptance speech, Kidman made sure to acknowledge Urban and their daughters Sunday Rose, 9, and Faith Margaret, 7.
“And to my family, I am nothing without you. What a blessing,” she said. “Thank you to all the actors that gave me the chance to say this.”

The Australian star also applauded other nominees, including Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon, and condemned ageism in the industry, saying, “To receive this at this stage in my life is extraordinary.”
“How wonderful it is that our careers today can go beyond 40 years old,” she said. “Twenty years ago, we were pretty washed up by this stage in our lives. That’s not the case now. We’ve proven … and are proving that we are potent, and powerful and viable.”
She added, “I just beg that the industry stays behind us … it’s only the beginning.”
