The Big Little Lies star posed for the May 2019 cover of Vanity Fair and opened up to the magazine about one policy she has in place for her two daughters with husband Keith Urban - 8-year-old Faith Margaret and her big sister Sunday Rose, 10 - that might make them not her biggest fan at times.

"That's how we are raising our children".

The actress continued, "I had a very Catholic grandmother, and I was raised praying, so that had massive impact".

"I'm very private about them. My dad would always say, 'Tolerance is the most important thing'".

Actress Nicole Kidman (centre) and her children Connor (2nd-left) and Isabella (2nd-Right) attend a game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat at the Staples Center December 25, 2004 in Los Angeles, California.

Nicole Kidman rarely speaks about her children, Connor and Isabella Cruise with ex-husband Tom Cruise. You can push them a bit, but motivation is a really hard thing, ' she said. "We lived there for Eyes Wide Shut, Mission Impossible and The Portrait of a Lady", Kidman said.

But the mum-of-four went on to say that it's her duty as a mum to love them no matter what.

As for being a mother to her young, impressionable girls, Kidman likes to keep "boundaries".

"You can't really get kids into anything, I've realised".

"I mean, nobody motivated me to be an actor; if anything they tried to deter me", Kidman adds.

She also opened up about how much she enjoyed spending time with her cast mates on their hit HBO series Big Little Lies, which returns for Season 2 on June 9.

"To watch Zoe and Shailene grow up and to see them become women...it's so nice, and I've never had that", she said, also revealing that the women share a group chat. "I know Laura and Reese feel that, too".

"[It's] extremely simple with what we want from each other and what we want from a relationship". "I signed on without even knowing what the part was because I had such confidence in this group and just how smart they all are and how high the bar was going to be".

The 52 year old actress looked half her age, rocking a daring blonde pixie cut while showing off her toned figure and some cleavage. "It was a really unbelievable experience of sharing our indignities and our triumphs, and just every rainbow of the female experience in our business".
