Nicole Kidman’s Sweet Birthday Gift from Reese Witherspoon

Only “Extra’s” Renee Bargh with Nicole Kidman, who just celebrated her 12th wedding anniversary as well as her 51st birthday!

Nicole’s husband, Keith Urban, recently honored her at the Country USA Festival, leading “thousands and thousands” of audience members in a serenade of “Happy Birthday.” Of the sweet moment, Nicole shared, “I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh, baby,’ but you know, if he's performing on my birthday… that's my birthday present!”

Kidman also celebrated her birthday with her “Big Little Lies” co-stars as they shoot the highly anticipated second season. She revealed, “Reese got me a big ice cream truck, so the crew and all the cast got to have ice cream.”

She added, “I was working, but they say it's good luck to work on your birthday.”

Nicole and her castmates are working on the new season with another highly acclaimed actress… Meryl Streep! Kidman gushed, “She’s fantastic… She’s passionate, she’s so bright, she just comes in and delivers time and time again far beyond what you expect.”

The cast is hanging out off-set, even going bowling. Nicole admitted, “I am the worst bowler… oh, I'm, like, I need bumpers… but they won't let me have them because I'm not 4.”

Nicole is also working behind the camera — her production company recently inked a new TV and movie deal with Amazon Studios. She commented, “We're looking to do entertaining, smart, fun, a lot of female-driven stories, and support filmmakers, first-time filmmakers and writers, and just be able to put our weight behind the people that are coming up and help build their careers for them.”

Nicole has also signed on as a Neutrogena brand ambassador. Her mission? Helping others stay healthy. She said, “I’m very fair... I was raised having to wear sunscreen.”

She also revealed an interesting tidbit about her skin, saying, “I have what they call 'emotional skin,' and also I can blush at really weird times and I have to go, 'Am I blushing?’ and people go, ‘Yeah.’”
