Beyond music, Keith recently took to Instagram Stories to laud his wife, Nicole Kidman's performance in Expats, saying: "Watching 'Expats' is surreal because even though I know I'm watching my wife, I'm utterly immersed and completely drawn to this story—emotionally and on other levels I can't explain—she's sooo good. It's crazy @nicolekidman."
