'He didn't love me at first sight'
They're happily married and raising their daughters together in Nashville.
But Nicole Kidman revealed to Ellen Degeneres that she didn't think her husband Keith Urban liked her when they first met at G'Day LA, an event honouring Australians, in 2005. On the episode that aired last Friday, the 45-year-old Oscar winner said that the 45-year-old country singer waited four whole months to ask her out.
The Moulin Rouge star recalled: "I'm like, "You didn't love me at first sight, you didn't notice me," and he's like, 'Yes I did but I just didn't let on,' but we kind of met and then about four months later he called me."
The talk show host responded, "Four months later? That's really playing it cool to wait that long."
"Yeah, that's a long time," Kidman agreed. 'That's why I'm like, "You really didn't like me when you first met me." He said he had other things he had to take care... Guys right, men?"
For her daytime appearance, the flawless five-foot-11 actress wore a slightly sheer LBD with long sleeves and booties. Nicole, whose strawberry blonde locks were straightened, was particularly expressive for Ellen's show perhaps to put any 'frozen Botox face' rumours to rest.

Sven and Nancy at war over £2.7million-London flat
Nancy Dell'Olio kept former lover Sven-Göran Eriksson waiting over an hour for her last Thursday as they tried to solve a legal dispute. The 64-year-old faced a tough match against Dell'Olio, 51, over his £2.7-million London flat which she still occupies.
Arriving at a west London law firm shortly after 9 am, the Swedish football manager had to patiently hang around for Nancy, who made an appearance at about 10 am. According to reports, Eriksson, who flew in from Thailand where he is currently working, wants Nancy out of the two-bedroom home in Eaton Place, Belgravia.
But the former Strictly Come Dancing contestant insists they had a verbal agreement that he would look after her financially and will only leave if he agrees a financial settlement of £1.5 million. Eriksson is believed to have allowed Dell'Olio, 50, to stay in the house rent-free for a year after they split in 2007.
But after eight hours of mediation talks in London, with lawyers present, there appeared to be no end in sight to the row. A friend of Dell'Olio said: "She wants millions from him and he is not prepared to give it to her. Nancy is desperate to reach a resolution but Sven was in no mood to settle."
The pair gathered round a table to try and settle the argument with the help of their own representatives and a solicitor acting as mediator. Dell'Olio was allegedly served with papers to leave the property more than a year ago. But she has steadfastly refused to quit the stucco-fronted apartment in one of the capital's most exclusive areas, where neighbours include Lady Thatcher and Joan Collins.

Fox News anchor reveals why she dumped Oprah's long-term beau
She dated Stedman Graham for three years in the 1980s.
But Fox 32 News anchor Robin Robinson told Anderson Cooper, on an episode airing Friday night, that she has no hard feelings about the 61-year-old educator ending up with Oprah Winfrey. "I am glad they ended up getting together because look at how long they have been together," the 55-year-old Chicago reporter said of the couple's 26-year relationship. "We are still friends. My best friend is actually married to his best friend. We hooked them up."
The former pair even moved from Denver to Chicago together and met Oprah there just as she was starting her daytime talk show.
"He is a great guy but I was very certain that I wanted to get married and have kids and I was in my early thirties and he was not moving fast enough," said Robinson.
"He is a step by step kind of patient guy and I said, 'You've got to go.' Next."
Robinson, a three-time divorcee, now has a 21-year-old son from her marriage to Dennis Allen. Stedman, who's an adjunct professor at Full Sail University, had already had a child from his previous marriage to Glenda Graham while he was dating Robin. He and Oprah — who turns 59 this month — were engaged to be married in November 1992, but called it off in favour of sharing 'a spiritual union'.
