Nicole Kidman has dished on her new love for television and her hopes to continue working on the small screen beyond HBO’s Big Little Lies.
The Oscar-winning film actress debuted her first major TV role in the U.S., starring and producing in the series alongside Reese Witherspoon, and tells ET she’s having a blast joining the legions of film actors transitioning to television.
“I'm not used to being in people's living rooms on a Sunday night, which I love by the way,” the 49-year-old Australian native told ET’s Kevin Frazier.
“I would love to [do more TV] actually,” continued the beauty, who is married to New Zealand-born country musician Keith Urban. “I've really enjoyed it. I mean, the great thing about this is there were such fantastic roles for five women, but you know, people are watching it around the world, which is really fun. A couple of people in Australia are calling me [and have] been emailing me, texting me, going, ‘What happens next? What happens next?’ So, that’s fun.”
Set in the upscale seaside community of Monterey, California, the highly acclaimed series is based on a book by Liane Moriarty and follows a group of mothers who become linked to a murder.
Asked about her racy scenes with screen husband Alexander Skarsgard, Kidman downplayed the raunchiness.
“I wouldn’t say racy,” she said. “It's very complicated. The characters really are very complicated characters in a complicated relationship, which I think it why this series, even though it's got the entertainment value, it's also really topical.”
