Who would have pegged one of Hollywood’s most classic and regal talented beauties as a total introvert? The gorgeous star graces the November cover of ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ and spills her red carpet insecurities.
Nicole Kidman, 45, is a seasoned pro at slinking down red carpets, looking elegant and confident with husband Keith Urban in tow. But she may not have always felt as suave and put together as she appeared. In the November 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, the stunning star shares her awkwardness, insecurities, and how she’s coming to terms with her body as she ages.
Nicole tells Harper’s Bazaar that, “I’m different than what they think I’m going to be. I’m reserved. I’m more of an introvert than an extrovert.” Who are “they?” It seems like all of us. Though famous and talented in her own right, in her early years of walking red carpet events with then-husband Tom Cruise, Nicole felt overwhelmingly insecure. She explained that she felt like “I’m here and I’m clutching onto [his] arm, and it all feels a little overwhelming and really strange.” (She could have fooled us!)
Has years of experience made Nicole feel more at home on the red carpet? “I find standing and posing for photos very awkward,” she says, telling the magazine that she often gets her makeup all over husband Keith’s tuxedo. Looks like she’s still working on actually feeling glamour and grace she so seemingly effortlessly exudes.
Though still self-conscious and shy, Nicole shares that, for her, body pressures become “less as you get older. All of that other stuff becomes less important. Like, I’ve always had a little belly. I mean, now that I’m 45, they don’t say, ‘Oh, she’s pregnant!’ as much. But I’ve got skinny arms and legs, and then I’ve got a little belly.” Even though we’re inclined to think, “what belly? Where?!” it’s still refreshing to know that a star as successful as Nicole has insecurities, and that she’s working on not letting them bother her!
