Kidman comfortable flashing flesh
Nicole Kidman has said she has no inhibitions stripping off for the camera as she simply doesn't give it any thought.
The 45-year-old Oscar-winning actress has posed for a raunchy photoshoot for V magazine, taken by Mario Testino. As well as showing off her curves in skimpy lingerie, the cover shows her topless from behind wearing a skirt so short it shows her bottom.
Nicole said of stripping off: "I don't really make decisions. I go with the flow. If I were a strategically minded person, I think I would have a far different career.
"But I would be more outlandish if I could. A lot of times you just don't get the chance."
The Australian actress's latest role is as a maneater obsessed with prisoners in The Paperboy, opposite Zac Efron.
Meanwhile, the Moulin Rouge star - who has two daughters with country singer husband Keith Urban, Sunday, four, and 19-month-old Faith, and two children from her marriage to Tom Cruise, Isabella, 19, and Connor, 17 - admitted she struggles to find time for romance in her busy life.
She said: "I rented this beautiful house on the beach. I thought, we'll swim in the ocean and just get lost in each other.
"So we go down, just us, and I'm like, 'We really should bring the kids'. Then the kids come down and the whole dynamic changes.
"Another time, we go out one night then we were both in tears. It was ridiculous. But time is so precious and I love the sound and the feel of them. I don't want to miss anything. And I don't want them to go, 'Where's my mom?'"
