We were all in shock after Nicole Kidman planted a kiss on Big Little Lies co-star,Alex Skarsgard after his Outstanding Supporting Actor win at the Emmys while her husband Keith Urban watched in the audience. The 50-year-old actress discussed it with W magazine’s
annual Best performance portfolio, shot by Juergen Teller. The talked about the Emmy kiss ,Keith Urban’s reaction to her role in the HBO series and their first date;
‘Right. There were times on that set when it was intense. But he and I communicated.
‘There had to be such safety and such honesty and such raw vulnerability there that we have a different connection.”So to be able to just give him a kiss, I mean, I’d kissed him many, many times on the set. Much more than that.
‘So that was just my way of going, in the moment – we were both shocked and we were like, “Oh, my gosh, I’m so glad you won.” Because I know what he put into that role.
‘And to see him standing up there and to hear his name read out was just, I mean, that was a really brave thing that he did, to was play that person that way.’
She talked about her husband’s reaction to the show;
‘When he watched Big Little Lies he was disturbed’, she explained. ‘He says that when he hears me scream or cry from a certain place in my soul it’s almost like it goes straight into him and he has a visceral reaction immediately.
‘Because his brain and his heart doesn’t discern between acting and real life. They’re the same sounds for him. It throws him.’
‘Keith is an artist. Um, he did have a hard time when he watched The Killing Of A Sacred Deer,’ she said. ‘He saw it at the Cannes Film Festival and he was sort of hypnotized and shattered by it.’
‘For me it was really disturbing. I get upset even when I go back into it.’
About Alex’s role;
‘He [Skarsgard] never pulled back and he never talked about, never worried about how he was being depicted. He was just very honest and very true to what the story needed.’
‘I was, like, a really tall, skinny, freckly red-headed girl,’ ‘I can’t remember my first date. I was, like, not that popular, I have to say.
Her first date with Keith
‘I remember my first date with Keith. Mm-hmm. Picked me up on a motorbike, took me to Woodstock. My kind of guy. Hey, we’re married! It was a good date.’
Do you guys think that kiss was appropriate? If you were Keith Urban what would you have done after that? Big little lies have been renewed for another season and we can’t wait. With four Golden Globes,the pressure is on…We are wondering what they have in store for season 2,they better bring it!lol
