Given her busy work schedule, Kidman has said that she likes to spend her time off with her family. “I love having my artistic path, and then my other passion is my family. That’s probably all I need in my life,” she said in the cover of InStyle‘s June issue.
“Other people are off doing things like having a girls’ weekend. I don’t have that because I go home,” the Bombshell actress said. “I want to be with my children and my husband. I will sort of get lost in a character or whatever I’m doing, but I’m constantly working to keep that balance.”
“We’re just a very close family,” Kidman told InStyle. “We put the time in, and there’s no taking that for granted.”
The proud parent added: “I’m constantly learning from them. They teach me about me. Parenting is about learning who they are, not making them what you want them to be, and letting them find their way and then supporting them. It’s rigorous — rigorous truth, rigorous consciousness. You’re constantly looking at yourself so you’re not placing these expectations on a child.”
