She has a new film on the way, several in post-production and a happy life at home with husband Keith Urban and their two daughters. But amid all that joy and success, Nicole Kidman is going through a very difficult time.
Just last month, her father, Dr. Antony Kidman, died of a heart attack, and the loss has left the Oscar-winning actress grieving for the parent she was so close to.
Kidman recently sat down with TODAY's Maria Shriver and discussed her grief, where she finds her solace and more.
- On the coping with the loss of her father: "It's a devastating thing for my family and myself right now."
- On how her husband, Keith Urban, reminds her of her father: "[By] being a good man and choosing to protect his family and take care of himself and his kids. And walk the walk, if that makes sense, not just talk the talk."
- On whether she relies on faith or her spouse for support during the hard times: "I do both. That would be me right now, and I'm lucky to have a rock of a husband and a strong faith. I have both those things."
- On finding a kind happiness she never imagined with Urban, daughters and life in Nashville: "[It happened] in a huge way. And I love saying that, because I think for anyone that's in pain now or hurting, it's always good to hear other stories of people that go, 'It's going to be OK.'"
