Nicole Kidman tells Jennifer Aniston about Keith Urban, her gift from God

January 5, 2011 |  3:52 pm

Nicole Kidman Nicole Kidman is getting a little help from her friends, namely Jennifer Aniston, in talking up her best actress-bait performance in "Rabbit Hole," as well as life as a working mom and wife.

"I remember thinking, Oh, my God, if you ever gave me a man like that, I promise I would be completely devoted for the rest of my life," Kidman said of husband Keith Urban, while Aniston gave her the Q&A treatment for Harper's Bazaar.

Sort of a strange stiletto for Aniston to slip on, that of a journalist, but she took to the task with admiration for Nicole, her costar in the upcoming Adam Sandler comedy "Just Go With It," which opens in February. 

"I remember the first time I met Nicole Kidman," Aniston recalled. "We were at a Golden Globes party in 2005 and -- typical Hollywood story -- we share an agent. I remember meeting this tall, beautiful woman ... I was completely starstruck."

Kidman said she's not only grateful for her man, but for their new life in Tennessee. 

"It was fortuitous that Keith happened to live in Tennessee. He brought me down to this place called Leipers Fork, just outside of Nashville, very lush and rural. I just went 'Aaah,' " she said.

But wait -- you didn't expect this to end without some mutual body envy, did you? Aniston says Kidman is a physical "masterpiece." Kidman finds this outrageous, saying, "Excuse me, you wear a bikini in the film and you look like you're 20 years old."

Aniston zings back that there was Vaseline on the lens.

Is this interview just a fantasy film-star love fest?
