WHO - - Back Chat -

The Os­car win­ner, 51, gives WHO’S Jackie Fields an up­date on her projects and hol­i­day plans.

How is the film­ing of Big Lit­tle Lies Sea­son 2 go­ing? We’re in the midst of shoot­ing it right now. I was work­ing on my birth­day [June 20], which they say is good luck, so I hope it is! How did you cel­e­brate your 51st birth­day on-set? Reese [Wither­spoon] got me an ice-cream truck, which was nice. And [a few days later] she, Zoë Kravitz and Laura Dern took me out to din­ner. As a Neu­tro­gena brand am­bas­sador, you’ve been speak­ing out about sun pro­tec­tion for its Ev­ery Day Is Sun­day cam­paign. Why is that im­por­tant to you? I’m pas­sion­ate about it be­cause for a lot of my child­hood I couldn’t be as out­doorsy or sporty as I would have liked be­cause I got se­vere burns. Rais­ing two lit­tle girls [Sun­day Rose, 10, and Faith Mar­garet, 7], I want them to be ac­tive, yet I want to be a re­spon­si­ble mother and pro­tect their skin so they thank me when they’re older. What are your north­ern sum­mer plans with the fam­ily? We’ll get a big blow-up slide and have a big pool party for my [older] daugh­ter’s birth­day [on July 7]. And my mum’s com­ing from Aus­tralia, so I’m go­ing to take her to the the­atre in New York. Also my sis­ter [An­to­nia] and I are go­ing to take our lit­tle girls on a hik­ing trip in Tas­ma­nia, which is a great place to hike. Your hus­band, Keith Ur­ban, is on his Graf­fiti U tour. Will you get to join him on the road? Oh yeah, we go out on the tour reg­u­larly. We call it “the road trip.” We sleep in bunk beds, and we get to see—and fall in love with—dif­fer­ent parts of Amer­ica. You two cel­e­brated your 12th wed­ding an­niver­sary on June 25. What’s your se­cret to long-last­ing love? I think it’s know­ing that you have to keep con­tribut­ing to what we call the “us.” You go, “Does this work for us?” And when you make an “us,” it’s yours to­gether—that’s what you create. No­body else has that. It’s just be­tween the two of you.

“Great night last night,” Kid­man posted about the April 24 Time 100 Gala in New York. The girls sent dad to the 2017 ACM Awards in high spir­its.
