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.
