OTRC: Nicole Kidman remembers her first award show with Tom Cruise fondly

Nicole Kidman tells OnTheRedCarpet.com about her first Academy Awards experience with Tom Cruise.

Nicole Kidman is in the midst of award seasons but told OnTheRedCarpet.com at a recent tea party to celebrate the upcoming BAFTA awards that she still remembers her first award show fondly.

"I suppose I remember going to the Academy Awards with Tom [Cruise] when I was about 23 or something and that was like, completely overwhelming, but fun," Kidman said. "It's quick and fast and furious for a little while and then I go back to Tennessee and relax. I don't stay up that late."

The 43-year-old actress recently attended the Golden Globes, where she was nominated, but did not win the award for 'Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama' for her portrayal of a mother mourning her son's death in "Rabbit Hole."

Kidman said that she chose the role because she "felt compelled to tell the story" and felt the movie's premise was important in what it "was saying about grief and how we navigate our way through those things."

Kidman won an Oscar in 2002 for her leading role in "The Hours." She has also been nominated for three BAFTA awards for 2003's "The Hours," 2002's "The Others," and the 1996 film, "To Die For."

The actress and her husband, country singer Keith Urban welcomed a baby girl, Faith Margaret Kidman Urban on December 28, 2010. She was born with the help of a surrogate. The couple also has a 2-year-old daughter, Sunday Rose.

Kidman will co-star in the upcoming Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston comedy, "Just Go With It," which is set for release on February 11, 2011.
