Australian-American actress, singer and film producer.Nicole Kidman: I’m Drawn to Men with “Bigger, Stronger Personalities” The former Days of Thunder star opens up in the November issue of Harpers Bazaar.
The forty five year old who acts in the Paperboy speaks out about being shy as a young star. She has said during her marriage back with now fifty year old Tom Cruise, she used to lean on him for support during public appearances.
“In those early years, it was like, ‘I’m here and I’m clutching onto your arm and it all feels a little overwhelming and really strange,’” she tells the mag. “And I was shy. Deeply shy. I didn’t feel comfortable at all. But I felt very comfortable at home.” Following her break-up to Cruise and settling down with Keith Urban, when discussing the both men during her interview, Kidman does go on to say that her attraction to them was their confidence.
The actress says she has always appreciated,
”a bigger, stronger personality; that’s what I’ve been drawn to. I need protection. Everyone wants to feel someone’s got their back.”
Urban gives her the support she needs. With his help, Kidman says she’s been able to put some of her self-esteem issues behind her.
“He just gave me confidence through just being very kind to me and understanding me,” Kidman explains. “Opening me up to trying things, my sexuality, those sorts of things.”Watch Video, The Paperboy Official Trailer!
