With a Best Actress Oscar nomination for new movie Rabbit Hole under her belt, and the recent announcement that she's celebrating the birth of her second biological child - via a surrogate - it's little surprise that Nicole Kidman is feeling rather content with life at present.

Married to musician Keith Urban, the pair have another biological daughter together - Sunday Rose, now two - and live in a remote 36-acre homestead in Tennessee.

'I'm crazy in love,' she told us. 'I think you can live anywhere and do anything when you're crazy in love.'

But, 'I wouldn't have been able to do this in my Twenties,' she confessed.

'I was a gypsy for so long, living out of a suitcase and sort of dragging Bella and Connor around with me,' - Bella and Connor being her two adopted children from her previous marriage to Tom Cruise - now aged 18 and 15 respectively.

The star also candidly spoke out about that Hollywood relationship, which saw her shoot to fame all those years ago, and described the personal sacrifices that she felt she had to make in order to be Mrs Tom Cruise.

'That was a great relationship. It was great,' she said. 'I think it ran its course.'

'I was never seeking to be a celebrity. But I was prepared to do that for love. And that is something that is hard to do.

'It's hard when you're young. But I'm ready to give up anything for love, because ultimately, that is what you have.'

The 43-year-old also admitted that she found the high-profile marriage breakdown a struggle.

'I was really damaged and not sure whether that was ever going to happen again to me,' she told us. 'I certainly never thought I'd have a baby at 41. But we never know what's around the corner.'

But, hurt and divorce aside, ultimately she argues that the notion of falling in love is what drives her.

'I'm very driven by falling in love,' she said. 'I fall in love and I'll drop everything and change everything.'
