Nicole Kidman is one of the most successful actresses of our times. She stars now in Lion, which is nominated at the Oscars. And besides that, she also stars in HBO‘s adaptation of Big Little Lies. And as she covers The Edit, she revealed that she and Lenny Kravitz were once engaged.
Nicole Kidman dated Lenny Kravitz after her divorce from Tom Cruise. But we never knew how serious their relationship is, until now. As Nicole stars with Lenny’s daughter, Zoë, in Big Little Lies, she shared to the magazine that they are like family.
“Well, I knew Zoë because I was engaged to her father. It’s all in the family! I love Lenny; he’s a great guy.”
And she also revealed that filming Big Little Lies traumatized her. She shared that the domestic violence her character went through made her reach for her husband, Keith Urban:

“I was quite traumatized after [filming] because we would shoot [the violent scenes] repeatedly. I was emotionally and physically traumatized. I’d come back and I’d need Keith to hold me, just to feel soothed.
One of the craziest things happened after we’d done a lot of violent scenes. When you see them in the show they’re flashes, but we needed to re-shoot them and re-shoot them so [director Jean-Marc Vallée] could get grabs of stuff. I couldn’t sleep and the next morning I went for a run to try and get some of Celeste’s energy out. I came back and I’d left my key, I couldn’t get in the door. It’s a glass door, so I got a rock and I threw the rock through the door. I’d never done anything like that before. And then I realized, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s how much I’m holding all this in, the anger, the pain.’”
