In a new interview with The Guardian, Hollywood powerhouse Nicole Kidman made a surprising revelation about life at home in Nashville with husband Keith Urban and their children — namely, that they have a no-devices house.
“We have periods at home where we don’t turn on the TV and try to have a detox from it all,” Kidman said. “I can recommend that to anyone. Like everyone, I worry about all the anger that seems to be around. What do you do? In our case, we have some land and some animals. I left home yesterday and my children were up in the tree house, with eight friends over. We have a no-devices house. Their friends can’t bring devices over. The general rule is: play, hard core and outside.”
That slower pace of life is what attracted the actress to living in Tennessee, as well, and even reminds her of Australia in a lot of ways, including “the pace of life, the landscape.” And while Urban is a major country music star, residents in Nashville tend to respect their privacy, she said.
The family goes to church, as well.
“We go to Catholic church, or sometimes we will go to a gospel church for the music,” she said. “That singing and joy is so wonderful.”
