Angelina Jolie isn’t the only famous mom talking about leaving the glamor of movie-making behind to concentrate on her family. Nicole Kidman told reporters at the Sydney premiere of her new epic, Australia, that she’s been thinking about stepping away from Hollywood to have more children. She has two adopted children in their teens who live with her ex, Tom Cruise, along with a baby daughter, Sunday Rose, four months:
‘I’m in a place in my life where I’ve had some great opportunities, and I may just choose to have some more children,’ said the 41-year-old, who has a 4-month-old girl with Urban and two adopted children Isabella, 15, and Connor, 13, from her marriage to Tom Cruise.
‘There’s many things I want to do besides act.’

Kidman, 41, held her hands over her stomach several times yesterday and she may already be working on that fourth child. Maybe she was just trying to find a place to rest her hands, though. It does seem suspicious that she hasn’t dyed her hair, but it’s possible she’s working on getting pregnant again and doesn’t want to risk it.
Director Baz Luhrmann has denied reports that he was furiously scrambling to change the ending (warning: link contains spoilers!) of the film at the last minute due to negative reactions from test audiences. He did shoot three different endings though, which is rare in movie-making as it ends up costing the studio a lot of money. Australia reportedly cost $120 million to make.
Australia is out in Australia today, 11/18, and opens in the US next week on 11/26. Here’s the trailer. My first boyfriend was Australian and that accent gets me every time. It doesn’t hurt that it’s coming from Jackman’s mouth.
