Nicole Kidman speaks about pregnancy rumors, husband Keith Urban, red fashion carpet and others in new interview with Harper’s Bazaar

On her husband, “The Paperboy” actress says he gave her confidence: “He just gave me confidence through just being very kind to me and understanding me, opening me up to trying things.”

Also, Kidman said she didn’t let the rumors afect her: “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.”

On her fame at the beginning of her career, during her marriage to Tom Cruise, she said: “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.”

For the appearances on the red carpet, the 45-year-old actress say she prefers comfortable outfits: “I make sure to wear comfortable dresses because I want to be able to go out afterward and, you know, bend.”

On the cover, Nicole wore an Emilio Pucci gown and Cartier cuff, and for other pictures for the publication designers like Versace, Missoni and Oscar de la Renta signed the creations. The pictorial was shot by photographer Terry Richardson.
