“We have a system worked out to keep the family together,” Kidman, 52, told the Wall Street Journal in its May 2020 issue.

The Big Little Lies alum and husband Keith Urban both have busy schedules, which leads to a give-and-take with her career choices.

“When Keith’s not touring, it’s much easier,” the Practical Magic actress admitted, but with the Australian singer going on tour next year, Kidman said “I just don’t work as much.”

The couple, who share daughters Sunday Rose, 11, and Faith, 9, have made sure to focus on their family dynamic and creating normalcy whenever possible.

“We don’t have the answers, but the one thing we do know is that we will not jeopardize us,” the Moulin Rouge star said.

The Oscar-winning actress revealed that success is only fulfilling if you have your people there alongside you.

“The only thing that really matters is love,” she told the publication. “No matter what your accomplishments are, it’s incredibly lonely if you’re not surrounded by some form of love.”

Despite picking roles — and sometimes turning them down — based on her family’s schedule, Kidman admitted that she doesn’t have “deep regrets.”
