“I peaked at 12. There are so many photos from that time where I look unbearably awkward. I’d just be looking in random directions and stuff.”
Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
“When I was only three years old, my mom enrolled me in the first grade. My older brother was supposed to start school, but he didn’t want to go alone, so my mom told them I was six since I was so tall. But after a few weeks, they said they would have to put me in mentally disabled classes because I wasn’t up to pace with the rest of the kids. They thought that I was slow because all I wanted to do was sleep while the other kids were doing their projects. (laughs) So my mom took me out of school.
“I’ve explored obsession. I’ve explored loss and love in terms of being in a grief-stricken place, I’ve explored strange sexual fetish stuff, I’ve explored the mundane aspect of marriage, and monogamy.”
– Nicole Kidman speaks to British GQ about her relationships, adding that her current marriage to Keith Urban is not mundane, saying:
“It’s a very extraordinary, adventurous place to be: incredibly raw, incredibly dangerous and you’re very much out at sea. You’re exposed. You could drown.”
Sounds … stable. Of her marriage to Tom Cruise, Kidman says this:

“I felt completely rancid! With the music industry, it’s very like ‘Oh, she’s got a hair out of place! Go fix it!’ You know what I mean? And so this was such a liberating experience and yet humiliated me. But I needed that. We all need that. We all need to understand how to be humble, and it’s a difficult business to do that in.” [People]
“[Robert Pattinson's character in "Twilight"] is actually a really good parallel to fame. As a vampire, he has a sad, desolate life—fame is the same. [...] I don’t want to be a movie star like Angelina Jolie. Nothing about being a celebrity is desirable. I’m an actor. It’s bizarre to me that everybody’s so obsessive.”
“I think if you look uncomfortable, you don’t look good. And that’s something you see in a lot of people, like running down the street in these awful shoes. And I’m just like, ‘You know, you don’t have any swagger! You look crazy! Just wear flats!’”
“If I don’t want to put on underwear because I’m wearing a dress and don’t want you to see the panty lines, I don’t have a choice. I have to wear underwear. If I get caught not wearing underwear, after I’ve made fun of [Britney and Lindsay] who flash their hot pocket for the camera, then I’m the a**hole. So … for the time being I own a lot of panties. If necessary, I’ll wear three or four pairs at once just to be safe.
“I don’t want to get bored. I can bore out pretty easily, so I love intellectual men … people that will always keep me intrigued…. And, you know, I love artistic men — somebody that really understands their art.”
