Ni­cole’s on-set melt­down and what’s be­hind the tears

The ac­tress’ mar­riage trou­bles with Keith are tak­ing their toll

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Contents -

She should be fo­cused on film­ing her hit show Big Lit­tle Lies, but a clearly distressed Ni­cole Kid­man is now strug­gling to deal with her on­go­ing mar­riage dra­mas at work as well as home.

Be­tween takes on the set in Mon­terey, Cal­i­for­nia, Nic was spot­ted look­ing vis­i­bly up­set – and an in­dus­try in­sider re­veals the cause was a heated ar­gu­ment she’d just had with hus­band Keith Ur­ban over the phone, re­duc­ing her to tears.

The on-set source re­veals to Wo­man’s Day, “She was try­ing not to cause a fuss, but peo­ple around her could hear she was re­ally telling Keith off about some­thing or other.

“She hung up, then started sob­bing and pac­ing around.”

For months, there have been re­ports that Nic and Keith, both 50, are on the brink of di­vorce, hav­ing en­dured con­stant fight­ing and var­i­ous failed at­tempts at cou­ples coun­selling.

Just last week Wo­man’s Day re­vealed the cou­ple are on the brink of mak­ing an of­fi­cial di­vorce an­nounce­ment.

“Ni­cole was a mess,” the in­sider says of her on-set melt­down. “Her team and co-stars like Reese [Wither­spoon] were do­ing ev­ery­thing they could to com­fort her, but she was so up­set and wanted to be left alone for a while.”

The source adds the ac­tress has ad­mit­ted the stress of the sit­u­a­tion with Keith has started to take its toll. “Ni­cole says she’s hardly been sleep­ing and can barely eat at the mo­ment.”
