The 50-year-old actress has children Isabella, 24, and Connor, 22, with former husband Tom Cruise and Sunday, nine, and Faith, six, with spouse Keith Urban. “I did Paddington and they were able to come and be a part of it, but they have very little understanding of what I do - their lives are obviously far more important,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Kidman as saying.

“They saw Paddington and were appalled because I played the villain, so I try to keep it separate for now,” she added.

Though the Beguiled star has a “moral compass” she considers when looking for work, she says she isn’t in a position to be a “control freak” about her career. “I have a certain moral compass which I abide by in terms of what I will and won’t do as a human being. But a lot of the time you are not in a position of power.

“An actor can’t be a control freak. You have to be able to give yourself over to the process and be willing to change and be moulded,” she told OK! Magazine.
