Keith Urban Is Inspired by Wife Nicole Kidman’s Career

“A lot of the times she gravitates towards things that she’s terrified of,” Keith says.

Nicole Kidman has done some pretty crazy things in her career as an Oscar-winning actress. Google “Nicole Kidman The Paperboy” for some evidence.

And her hubby, Keith Urban, finds those choices, well, exhilarating and motivating.

“She’s really inspiring as an artist, because she’s pretty fearless with her choices,” Keith tells ABC News Radio. “I’m very inspired by that fearlessness to try something. Her attitude is like, ’If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work. You go on to the next thing.’”

And it’s not just any old challenge that Nicole picks, Keith says.

“A lot of the times she gravitates towards things that she’s terrified of, characters that she just does not want to play, people that she wants to explore but doesn’t want to ’cause it’s a little uncomfortable,” he said. “She’ll go there simply because of that, to break through that. I really find that very inspiring.”
