Nicole Kidman says she utterly respects her eldest children's Scientology beliefs.
The 45-year-old actress - who is married to Australian singer Keith Urban with whom she shares daughters Sunday Rose, four, and Faith Margaret, two - said she would never discuss her older children Isabella, 20, and 17-year-old Connor Cruise's commitment to the controversial sect or speak out against it.
'The Paperboy' star - who was previously married to Isabella and Connor's father Tom Cruise - told The Hollywood Reporter: "I've chosen not to speak publicly about Scientology. I have two children who are Scientologists - Connor and Isabella - and I utterly respect their beliefs."
The Oscar winner also opened up about her views on fame and thinks that some of the perks are "tacky".
"Never would I take free clothes. That would be so ... tacky," she said.
"These people work so hard to make beautiful things - you have to appreciate that."
Nicole revealed that she much prefers living away from Hollywood with her husband in Nashville, although she admitted their days are equally star-studded there.
"It's such an easy lifestyle. And it's more diverse than you'd expect. There's so much great music.
"The Black Keys go jogging past the restaurant Keith and I go to. We'll hang out with Jack White in the studio. And there's music in our house all the time - Keith plays harmonica, drums, banjo, piano and bass guitar."He has a strong will about his career, and so do I. We want each other to thrive and do what we love, and we never interfere in the other's career choices."
