Nicole Kidman recently got her comedy feet wet — in Hawaii! — and she loved every minute of it.
The 43-year-old star joined forces with Adam Sandler for his latest comedic endeavor, “Just Go With It,” and said she had a blast filming with the hilarious cast.
“It was fun,” Nicole told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson at the film’s New York premiere on Tuesday. “This was the film that I did straight after ‘Rabbit Hole’ so it was important to do something light where I could laugh and put on a hula skirt.”
In addition to laughing away those “Rabbit Hole” blues, Nicole enjoyed getting hot ’n’ heavy with her co-star (and famed musician), Dave Matthews.
“[Keith] was insanely jealous,” Nicole told Shaun, jokingly, of her husband, Keith Urban’s response to his wife cavorting with another sexy singer. “No — he loves Dave. He says Dave is ‘such an extraordinary musician.’
“They would just sit around and talk about music actually,” she laughed of the men’s bonding conversations.
Nicole, who recently became proud mommy to her second daughter with Keith, Faith Margaret, received another honor two weeks ago when she was nominated for an Academy Award for her moving performance in “Rabbit Hole,” but she said her emotional reaction caught her 2-year-old daughter, Sunday Rose, by surprise.
“I heard that you broke down in tears when you heard you were nominated for the Oscar and Sunday Rose was like, ‘What’s wrong, Mommy?’” Shaun told Nicole.
“It was just a really joyful moment, but I was crying because, you know, sometimes you cry when you’re happy,” Nicole told Shaun. “She was like, ‘Why are you sad?’ and I was like, ‘Mommy’s not sad, Mommy’s happy.’
“But that’s confusing for a two-year-old,” she laughed.
See Nicole, along with Adam, Jennifer Aniston, Dave and Brooklyn Decker when “Just Go With It” hits theaters on Friday.
