The seemingly ageless Nicole Kidman fronts Town & Country’s Holiday issue decked out in Dior Haute Couture and iced in Tiffany & Co. In an interview with Sara Vilkomerson, the actress opens up about the connection she has to her role in her forthcoming film LION as the mother of adopted children herself, and she dishes on life in Nashville with hubby Keith Urban and why she’s only happy when taking risks…

On her personal connection to her new film Lion…
“I can see now, for Lion, that it was important to me because I’m a mother with adopted children. This movie is a love letter to my children. [My character] Sue is deeply maternal and full of unconditional love, which is beautiful. That’s why I wanted to do it. I relate to that. I feel that for my own children who are adopted. It’s not about anything else other than ‘I wanted you.’ It’s that deep and personal, and whatever your journey is, I’m here to love and support you. That’s what I connected to.”

On her pattern in picking projects…
“I call myself the wild card because I have no idea what it is. I’m so spontaneous—sometimes to my detriment and sometimes my benefit—but it’s how I’ve always been. My husband [Keith Urban] never knows what I’m going to choose. And then he’ll ask me to explain why and I can’t!”

On her desire to be thrilled, both in projects and in life…
“The mistakes I’ve made have always involved people not matching the extreme artistic desire—when I’ve tried to be a bit more homogenized, or tried not to be as bold. When I’ve been guided into places that don’t suit what I am intrinsically—that’s when it doesn’t work out…I’ve been the same way since I was 14. I don’t conform. That’s just my nature.”
