-In her 10th time covering Vanity Fair, Nicole Kidman talks about her marriage to Keith Urban (“It’s extremely simple with what we want from each other and what we want from a relationship. Just peas in a pod in that regard”), her kids with Tom Cruise (Bella is married and lives in London, Conner is in music in Miami), and how Meryl Streep slipped seamlessly into Big Little Lies’ close-knit cast (“There are no men in our equation. I mean, there are, but they’re not on the group chat, let’s put it that way. [Meryl is] and she’s very funny”).

-13 Going on 30 came out 15 years ago today. Let’s celebrate by rewatching the best awkward dance scene everJennifer Garner’s post about the film, in which she celebrates her young costars, is very sweet. I also very much like this article on why it’s a better movie than Big. “‘Chick flicks’— as some like to call romance films that center on a woman—are never ‘refreshing’ or ‘poignant.’ Chick flicks, no matter how original they are, are ‘well-worn,’ ‘formulaic’ and ‘uninspired.’ Big gets to be on the American Film Institute’s list of funniest films of all time, while 13 Going on 30 gets dubbed a guilty pleasure.”

They talk about the times they wished they had spoken up more on set, and why it’s important to speak openly about pay and treatment. Said Kidman: “Working with younger actresses, I say, ‘Ask me anything and I’ll answer. Ask me anything financially. If you need advice, just ask. I can only tell you what I advise and you might take it or leave it. But it’s nice to have access to information.'”

I thought, ‘With my tremendous size, I could tackle you so quickly.’ ”

In her new People cover story, Nicole Kidman says she knew she wanted to marry Keith Urban after just six months of dating. “It was my [38th] birthday, and he stood outside with gardenias at 5 a.m. on my stoop in New York. That is when I went, ‘This is the man I hope I get to marry.'”
