The pas­sage of time is some­thing that Kid­man has grown keenly aware of, es­pe­cially af­ter start­ing a fam­ily. “Once you have chil­dren, you re­alise how it all just goes so quickly,” she says. “It’s sad that it’s so quick. Ob­vi­ously as you get older, that be­comes ap­par­ent and you have the de­sire for things to slow down. A lot of peo­ple talk about the ‘slow­ing down’ of life. I really sup­port that. Oth­er­wise, we’re rush­ing through ev­ery­thing and not ac­tu­ally ex­pe­ri­enc­ing it.”

What would she do if she had one free minute, hour or day? “If I had one minute, I’d day­dream or med­i­tate. An hour free? I’d get down on the floor and play with my kids. A day? I love break­fast; it’s my favourite meal. So a long, leisurely break­fast is just beau­ti­ful to me. I’d read the pa­pers and go for a swim if I was in Sydney. I love the beach, even though I’m in­cred­i­bly pale. I put on th­ese ter­ri­bly long, unattrac­tive rashies and peo­ple laugh at me. My kids laugh at me. But that’s what I would do. I love swim­ming and I just love be­ing with Keith and the girls. That’s it.”
