Nicole Kidman is Harper’s Bazaar‘s cover for its November issue!
The actress appears on the cover in Pucci, and throughout the Terry Richardson-shot pictorial, she dons looks from Dior Haute Couture, Missoni, Oscar de la Renta and Versace. The issue is out Oct. 23.
Excerpts from the interview:
On early fame, when she was married to Tom Cruise: “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. And I was shy. Deeply shy. I didn’t feel comfortable at all. But I felt very comfortable at home.”
On her husband of six years, Keith Urban: “He just gave me confidence through just being very kind to me and understanding me, opening me up to trying things, my sexuality, those sorts of things…[He's] a bigger, stronger personality; that’s what I’ve been drawn to. I need protection. Everyone wants to feel someone’s got their back.”
On caring about what she wears as she grows older: “Less as you get older. All of that other stuff becomes less important. Like, I’ve always had a little belly. I mean, now that I’m 45, they don’t say, ‘Oh, she’s pregnant!’ as much. But I’ve got skinny arms and legs, and then I’ve got a little belly. I find standing and posing for photos very awkward..I make sure to wear comfortable dresses because I want to be able to go out afterward and, you know, bend.”
