Up to the challenge! Nicole Kidman is on the cover of Vogue‘s stunning August issue, and with it, she participates in a flawless round of the magazine’s famed 73 Questions.
The Queen of the Desert star, 48, opens the video on the steps of her gorgeous farm in her native Australia. Wearing an airy white dress and a wide-brimmed hat, the star welcomes the interviewer into her home, greeting him with a cheery, “G’day, mate!”
Kidman goes on to offer a tour of the picturesque property that she shares with husband Keith Urban, and daughters Sunday, 7, and Faith, 4. The farm includes six alpacas, hens that produce fresh eggs, Black Angus cows, and an orchard that provides fruit for Kidman to make homemade jam.
The Oscar winner, who raved about the “simplicity,” “air,” and “peace” that she finds on the farm, then answered Vogue’s dozens of questions, speaking on everything from her family life with Urban, 47, to her likes and dislikes.
Asked whether she listened to the country singer’s music before they got together in the mid-2000s, Kidman revealed, “I didn’t know him so I couldn’t really be a fan, but now, I’m his biggest fan.” She then proved how much of a fan she really is, singing the lyrics to Urban’s 2015 single “Raise ‘Em Up.”
Discussing her life as a mom, Kidman said the best thing about motherhood is “everything — the love, the joy, the purpose,” while the worst thing is “knowing I won’t be here forever so I won’t always be able to take care of them.”
She continued the deep dive, revealing that the theme to her life would be Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” and hinting at personal turmoil. “[I feel] pretty raw [these days],” she said. “[I’ve] been through a lot.”
On a lighter note, the Grace of Monaco star shared that she prefers diamonds over pearls, jogging over swimming, yoga over Pilates, and a window seat over an aisle seat.
