Harper’s Bazaar decided to give us a little girl-on-girl action in the February 2011 issue. Nicole Kidman graces the cover and is interviewed by Jennifer Aniston, her costar in the new comedy Just Go With It, about marriage, motherhood and the joy of lightening up.

On motherhood: “I had kids at 25 and 27 [Isabella and Connor, Nicole’s adopted children with first husband Tom Cruise]. I think I have more patience now but less physical energy. It’s a trade-off: In your 20s, you’re bounding around, they’re attached at your hip, and you can just go and do anything. But I’m much more of a homebody now. My roots are deeper.”

On moving to Nashville: “I love living a ways away. That’s what I’ve worked for in my career, to not  have to  live in Los Angeles. So 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.  You know how you dream as a girl; I’m one of those people. I would meet a guy, then I would imagine myself married and with kids within the first hour. [Laughs] But it worked out.”
