Nicole Kidman has an incredible figure which she maintains with a healthy diet and regular exercise. However, the Big Little Lies star doesn't deprive herself of anything, and even admitted that she pretty much eats whatever she likes, within moderation.

The Hours actress opened up about her eating habits during an interview with Los Angeles Times in 2014. The mother-of-four said: "I'm actually not that strict with my diet. I pretty much eat anything, but all in moderation."

Nicole makes sure to treat herself too. "It's walking a path that's ultimately 80 per cent health, 20 per cent… sometimes it falls to 70 per cent," she told Women's Health magazine in 2013.

"But that's why I think you have things like natural health remedies – you find out what works for you. And I do a lot and I have a lot of energy."

Favourite foods that Nicole likes to indulge in are fresh seafood platters and an Australian dish called 'sausage sizzle' – a barbecued sausage served on white bread.

Nicole also tends to let husband Keith Urban do most of the cooking in their family, admitting in the past that she isn't the best cook. "I cook chicken for [Keith] and it's always dry," she told People magazine in 2009.

"I'm a much better person to cook for because I love food and I will eat almost anything."

When it comes to working out, Nicole enjoys spinning, yoga and running – although the star probably won't be doing that anytime soon.

In April, Nicole ended up breaking her ankle after taking a fall during a run around her neighbourhood in Nashville, where her family stayed during the lockdown.

Keith opened up about his wife's injury during an interview with The Project. The country singer said: "Five weeks ago she was running around the neighbourhood as she does and just didn't see a pothole and rolled her ankles and got a small break in her ankle.

"So she's been relegated to the boot for the last handful of weeks and is still sort of getting through it, but her spirits have been amazing I've got to say. She has been handling it way better than I would have."
