As you may have noticed from this week's issue of Grazia, we caught up with Nicole Kidman in Vienna on a trip to launch the new Omega Ladymatic watch styles (Nicole is an Omega ambassador), we were treated to a very warm chat. In it, the Oscar-winning actress revealed that when she met her husband, singer Keith Urban, she considered giving up her career. Nicole also dished on picking what to wear on the red carpet and playing Grace Kelly...

Before you leave for a red carpet event, do your husband and daughters weigh in on what you’ve worn – and have you ever changed your mind about what you’re wearing based on their input?

'I tend to solicit the opinions of all three of them even though one of them is only two. I’ve actually changed when my husband said something’s not great. A lot of times, I look in the mirror and see something different. He likes natural and he likes something that’s “not so ‘done’ ”, which I would say speaks for a lot of men. I’ve definitely changed my style since I’ve been with him as well.'

What does a woman’s choice of watch say about her?

'I suppose it’s the equivalent to shoes and bags in a way. You can be funky; you can be quirky, or you can be very straight down the line – in terms of the watch and the band as well. It’s interesting and I think now it’s a very important fashion accessory. I enjoy it. And I enjoy that it does allow you to map out your day in terms of time. So it’s practical but it’s also very beautiful. And I also like that you can go underwater with it.'

Time is not always kind to women working in Hollywood. You said once that after the Grace Kelly film, that was it. But youare currently filming in London so nothing seems to be stopping you...

'When I had Sunday, I took a long time off my schedule. And it was my mother and my husband who said not to give up my career. I was in a place of contentment. I kind of thought I don’t need to keep doing this. My mom, who is a huge driving force in my life, and my husband both said, “You still have things inside you. You should still pursue them or in the next few decades you’re going to wish you had maintained it.” Not to the degree that I used to do it because that takes an enormous amount of commitment, but I knew I could do the occasional thing. And then Grace came along which was an opportunity to work with Olivier Dahan and be able to go to France and spend a long time there, which was fantastic. And then to go to England – I’ve spent pretty much the last year in Europe and that’s been wonderful.
