Academy award-winning actress Nicole Kidman has opened up about her marriage to country singer Keith Urban saying that his alcohol addiction had put a huge strain on their relationship.
The 'Moulin Rouge' actress who has a nine-month-old-daughter with Urban, revealed that her husband's rehab stint which came just three months after their wedding was a tough phase in their marriage, reported Daily Mail.
"We were thrown into his alcohol problems three months into the marriage and that was big. We did ten years of marriage in just three months. When the addiction takes control of someone's life, it's terrifying. But there is hope, and we work on it every day." the 41-year-old actress told the paper.
Oscar winning Kidman who is one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood said that having given birth late in life, she now is cared of old age and death.
" It's bittersweet. I want to be around to see Sunday Rose's 21st birthday and I want to see her get married. My relationship with death used to be far more ambivalent, whereas now it feels much more important for me to stay in the world.
"I feel there's something that happens when you give birth that is very primal and which men will never understand, but women who have done it all do, the birthing experience altered my whole being," said the Australian actress.
