Nicole Kidman has been playing for decades and has received many awards. But how does the actress, who plays characters ranging from action heroes to Stepford women, fuel her lifestyle?
As it turns out, her diet and exercise routine isn't particularly complicated.

And remember - just because a certain routine works for a celebrity doesn't mean that it works for you and that you speak to your doctor before changing your diet drastically.

"I'm actually not that strict about my diet," she told the Los Angeles Times in 2014. "I eat pretty much everything, but everything in moderation."
This is a mostly healthy diet and exercise routine with some room for enjoyment.
"There is a way that is ultimately 80% healthy, 20% ... sometimes there are 70," she told the Women's Health magazine in 2013, talking about her diet. "But that's why I think you have things like natural remedies - you find out what works for you. And I do a lot and I have a lot of energy."
Kidman said she preferred Australian dishes like seafood platters and "sausage sausages".
Nicole Kidman said she loved meat and seafood.
Kidman grew up in Australia and some of her favorite foods are typical dishes from the country.
According to a 2017 Food & Wine magazine article, Kidman likes fresh seafood platters with Sydney oysters, tiger prawns, mud crabs and lobsters. She also told the magazine that she is known for enjoying a "sausage sizzle", including a grill that produces an iconic Australian dish - a sausage on white bread.
Kidman also likes bread. Her favorite food is "homemade warm bread with Reggiano" according to her 73-question video with Vogue from 2015.
But if you ever eat with Kidman, don't suggest adding ham to the meal. According to the same video with 73 questions, it is her least loved food.
But Kidman said she wasn't the best cook.

"I'm a terrible cook," she told People magazine in 2009. "I cook chicken for [my husband Keith Urban] and it's always dry."
That said, she said she was still a good person in the kitchen - as long as she was at the receiving end of things.
"I am a much better person to cook because I love food and will eat almost anything," she added.
Kidman's training routine is fairly low-maintenance.
