Hemingway & Gellhorn co-stars Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen grace the cover of W magazine’s May 2012 issue. Inside, Nicole discusses the HBO movie and husband Keith Urban’s throat surgery.
On Hemingway & Gellhorn: “I knew nothing about Martha [Gellhorn], but I’ve always been drawn to unique women who are willing to take on the world. The exciting thing about this film is that you see her discovering her nature. At the beginning, she’s a lot of talk. She knows that she’s either got to get her hands dirty and become what she pretends to be or she’s a fraud. In the end, Gellhorn out-Hemingways Hemingway.”
On husband Keith Urban‘s throat surgery: “All of those things make you closer. It was sort of profound: to go without his voice, and then to finally hear his voice. What if he sounded different? I was there for his first words, and then we cried. How many people experience their husband’s first words? If that doesn’t bring you closer, you’re not breathing.”
