  • Nicole Kidman is very private about her life as a mom to her four children

  • Kidman tells Vogue Australia that her teen daughter, 15-year-old Sunday, recently watched Big Little Lies with her

  • The teen helped convince Kidman that the role was worth returning to for the show's third season

Nicole Kidman bit the bullet and watched one of her recent hits with her daughter.

The Expats actress, 56, tells Vogue Australia that her teen daughter, 15-year-old Sunday Rose, recently sat down and watched Kidman's HBO show, Big Little Lies.

Kidman told the outlet that playing Celeste — a role that's earned her personally an Emmy, a SAG and a Golden Globe — has garnered her a lot of attention and thanks, but she was most stricken by her daughter's response.

"She has a very good understanding of things, and life, so she was hand-held through it," Kidman said, noting there were still scenes where she instructed the teen to look away.

“And she was like, ‘No. There’s no more discussion. The third series has to happen…I’m sick of the talk. Sick of circling it. Just get it done.’ ” Kidman laughed. “You need a teenager to go, ‘Enough. Just do it.’”

Ahead of the release of the show's second season in fall 2018, Kidman appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she talked about her younger pair spending time on set with her during filming.

“They were in as extras in Big Little Lies, which I’ve never told anyone, and I’m not being a big mouth,” Kidman joked, noting the girls make a cameo but not during what part.

Kidman shares daughters Faith Margaret, 13, and Sunday with husband Keith Urban. She is also mom to adult children Bella, 31, and Connor, 29, whom she adopted with ex-husband Tom Cruise during their marriage.

In an interview with Australian reporter Angela Bishop in July, the Northman actress revealed that she is planning on returning to Australia with her kids to see family.

"Nicole, are you coming home anytime soon for anything? Is there anything on the horizon we should know about?" Bishop asked.

"Just family. Always family. We jump in and out quite a bit, sometimes under the radar, which is always lovely too," Kidman replied.
