Season one of Big Little Lies did a great job of sensitively depicting an abusive relationship, and Nicole Kidman’s Emmy-winning performance on the series has a lot to do with that. Kidman played Celeste Wright, a woman who seems perfect on the outside, but is secretly stuck in an abusive relationship with her husband Perry (Alexander Skarsgård).
The show often featured scenes showcasing domestic violence and then graphic sex between Celeste and Perry, and as a viewer, it was sometimes hard to watch. But as Fox News reports, Kidman said that her husband, Keith Urban, has been supportive of all aspects of the show.

During the New York City premiere of Big Little Lies‘ second season, Kidman told News.com.au that Urban is “unbelievably supportive and watches all the episodes and cheers on from the sidelines which, I have to say, if I didn’t have that I wouldn’t be able to do it, I seriously wouldn’t.”
Kidman and Urban have been married since 2006, and Kidman said that she feels “fortunate” to be with him. “I will always say that about him. I’m one of the very fortunate women in the world to have had a wonderful father, and I have a wonderful husband, and I’m just very—I love to be able to say that,” she explained.
Season two of Big Little Lies is set to premiere on June 9, and the new season will examine how the “Monterey Five” are dealing with the aftermath of Perry’s death, and Meryl Streep has joined the cast as Celeste’s mother-in-law, Mary Louise Wright.
