Nicole Kidman, star of 'Rabbit Hole', wants another baby

12/23/2010 by Corinne Heller

Nicole Kidman, star of the new film "Rabbit Hole", says she and husband Keith Urban hope to have another baby.

Kidman, 43, and Urban, a 43-year-old country singer and her second husband, welcomed their first child, daughter Sunday Rose, in 2008. Kidman also has two adopted children from her marriage to actor Tom Cruise - Isabella, 18, and Connor, 16.

When asked recently if she had plans to expand her family with Urban, Kidman told the Reuters news wire: "We're hoping for another one!"

Us Weekly quoted Kidman as telling Hello! magazine that Isabella and Connor chose to live with Cruise, even though she would love to have them reside with her and Urban. Cruise has not commented on her remarks but told the publication in 2001, the year they divorced after 10 years of marriage, that they planned to raise their children together.

"I raised two kids when I was in my 20s, but that was a different thing," Kidman told Reuters. "I was a kid and still so young mentally and emotionally - a totally different mom. There is something about mothering late in life. A lot of it is I want to stay alive for Sunday. There is plenty of deep fear and emotion. Sunday has healed an enormous amount in me. It's a very private thing, but she just has."

Meanwhile, Sunday, she said is currently in "what we call 'the raccoon' stage because she's into everything. She's into this, she's into that. She's just really hard to wrangle at this stage. Our daughter is a Tennessee girl, but she still says 'G'day mate.' She says both 'Hi y'all' and 'G'day mate.'"

Kidman has said Urban and her mother encourage her to continue working as an actress despite having started a new family. In "Rabbit Hole", Kidman plays a mother mourning the loss of her child. She was recently nominated for a Golden Globe for her role. (Check out the full list of 2011 Golden Globe Award nominations).

Kidman said earlier this month that she felt vulnerable filming the movie because she had given birth to her daughter during a year before.

Kidman has also finished shooting two films - "Just Go With It", a romantic comedy starred Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler, and "Trespass", a crime thriller starring Nicolas Cage. She is also preparing to film the television movie "Hemingway & Gellhorn" with Clive Owen and the drama film "The Danish Girl".

Kidman is also set to be honored on Feb. 5, 2011 at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival with the Cinema Vanguard Award, which is given to actors who have taken "artistic risks" and have made a "significant and unique contribution to film".

Meanwhile, Kidman is set to return to Broadway in the fall of 2011. She will play Alexandra Del Lago, a faded and often drunk movie actress, in a revival of the Tennessee Williams play "Sweet Bird of Youth".

The actress made her Broadway debut in 1998, when she starred for one season in the David Hare play "The Blue Room", which featured a much-hyped moment in which she flashes her butt briefly.

The original 1959 production of "Sweet Bird of Youth" starred Geraldine Page as Alexandra and Paul Newman as the gigolo Chance.

"My daughter was 1 when I shot the film," Kidman told Cari Skillman of KABC Television, OnTheRedCarpet.com's parent company. "To have a baby and to have just recently given birth to her, that put me in a place of rawness, of vulnerability."

In the film, Kidman's character meets with the teenage driver who accidentally ran over her son, while her husband, played by Aaron Eckhart, smokes marijuana with a member of his bereavement support group.

"I suppose my biggest thing with the role was having her emotions and her pain pulsating underneath but not wearing them on her sleeve," Kidman said about her character. "The layering of that means that you have to have all of that throbbing inside but not let it out and when you do let it out, it's at erratic moments and then you have to feel the absolute intensity of it."

Kidman, who won an Oscar for her part in the 2003 film "The Hours", was recently nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in "Rabbit Hole", which is set for a limited release on Friday. (Check out the full list of 2011 Golden Globe Award nominations).

"It took more than four years to get our little movie off the ground, and to be recognized for my work in a film that means so much to me is truly such an honor," Kidman said in a statement when she heard the news.

Kidman is also set to be honored on Feb. 5, 2011 at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival with the Cinema Vanguard Award, which is given to actors who have taken "artistic risks" and have made a "significant and unique contribution to film".
