Actress Nicole Kidman has been spending time in Port-au-Prince, Haiti as part of her work as a goodwill ambassador with United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) and she opened up about her mission as well as her family life.
Here are some HIGHlights:
On her work with UNIFEM:
"It's not what I get out of it. I feel like I can never put enough into it. The greatest thing my parents did was give me a social conscience.
"For someone like Sunday, for her to be able to be molded, I suppose, to have a very strong social conscience — I would be so proud. I would hope for that. Keith and I are both very committed to that."
On her daughter Sunday Rose:
"I've spent two nights away from her in two years. I'm just so into her. I'm crazy about her. She's a good little traveler. She flies everywhere and she brings her little toys. It's not a big deal, traveling with them — but not to Haiti.
"Safetywise, I couldn't bring her (here), but otherwise, she goes everywhere with me. We were walking through the tent cities today, and it's just rubble and tents."
On charity work being a part of her family life with husband Keith Urban:
"Keith has done benefit concerts for us. He's been so supportive. I'm always like, 'Hey, I think I might be able to get hold of a musician.' He's so lovely. I'm just constantly trying to give a voice to the women around the world, women everywhere, who are in need of help.
"If there's anything to be had from having worked for 23 to 25 years of my life, I'm so glad to now be able to do this. I don't mind being used like that."
We love hearing about celebrities using their powers for good!
Keep it up, Nicole!
