Nicole Kidman Talks About Healthy Eating and Running in SHE Magazine

Nicole Kidman: Running Is a Family Thing

In the latest issue of British magazine SHE, Nicole Kidman opens up about health and wellness, confessing that running, well, runs in the family. Nicole tells SHE, "It’s what my dad taught us — he’s a marathon runner. He’s 71 and goes on 10-mile runs." Nicole says that her papa also likes to go hiking for hours at a time.

It looks like dad's lesson paid off. Nicole is seen running around town or hitting the gym pretty often — she even went to spinning classes while pregnant with baby Sunday Rose! Nicole must have chosen spinning when she was pregnant because it's easy on the joints.

The actress also gives a little insight into how she maintains that svelte frame of hers — it's genetics! It can be hard to stay healthy when you're on a road trip, something Nicole knows all too well when touring with her hubby, country musician Keith Urban: "As Keith's a musician there are pit stops at Wendy’s, but I’m six-foot tall, so it’s not weight that’s an issue for me, but things like cholesterol."

We imagine that Nicole will be spending a lot of time on the road this week promoting Nine before its Dec. 25 release. Hopefully, she has some tips for staying healthy when eating out. If not, we've got a few to share with her, like splitting a massive sized entrée or having starters as a main course.

i wouldn't say being tall makes it easier to be thin, there's just more area to distribute weight.

Yeah, if you're tall, it's a lot easier to be thin. Man, I wish I were 6' tall! It's nice to hear that she's being honest about running though. None of this "Oh, I eat whatever I want and just walk" stuff.

Her sister is even thinner at the moment as she's just been training for a marathon.You can't beat genetics, 2 tall, thin people have produced 2 tall thin girls.

This is fantastic. People want to know what it takes to be fit and in shape. Vigorous activity is it. I love that her dad is 71 and still runs 10 miles. She can get a little too thin at times but I love that she runs and works out as hard as she does. I have more respect for her.
