Kidman loves Australia
09:30 25 April 2005
Nicole Kidman says she feels much more relaxed when she's in her home country of Australia.
The Oscar-winning beauty, who resides permanently in Los Angeles, says she loves visiting her homeland because people aren't bothered by her fame.
She said: "The great thing about going home is that Australians don't think my fame is a big deal. I can go to Bondi Beach with the kids without being closely observed.
"I can really relax and I've been playing with them and seeing my mother and sister. That family support, both in believing in me and helping me, has been vital. I wouldn't be here at all, enjoying the success I've had, if it wasn't for them."
