Reports have been circulating online that country singer Keith Urban is jealous with his wife's intimate scenes in HBO series "Big Little Lies." Nicole Kidman (Celeste Wright) and Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgård (Perry Wright) both play as a married couple in the dark comedy-drama series. Kidman admitted that she plead the showrunners to cast Skarsgård to play as her husband in the series. The latter is considered one of the hottest stars in Hollywood and Kidman appears to be overwhelmed by him.

Talking to Vulture, Nicole Kidman said that she terribly wanted Skarsgård to be her partner in "Big Little Lies." "Yeah, he was so good. I wanted him badly! I was like come on, please. Come on, HBO, we've gotta get him. And, obviously, he's very tall as well, which is really, really helpful for me," she said. Skarsgård is apparently taller than her and she likes it since it will look like he's physically dominating in the series.

That being said, many fans wonder if it affected her husband Keith Urban as she obviously towers him most of the time. During an interview on a morning radio show with Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O' Henderson, Nicole Kidman admitted that Urban was concerned about her role in "Big Little Lies." This is because she gets bruised and battered with her role, which concerns him a lot.

Nicole Kidman added that the role is tough for her and Keith Urban certainly understands that what she's doing, particularly the love scenes is nothing but work. Despite that, she also admitted that Urban is still uncomfortable with her intimate scenes in "Big Little Lies" with Skarsgård. After all, no husband would want to see his wife with someone else doing love scenes on TV, where the rest of the world is watching.

Nicole Kidman has been doing the same scenes in her entire career but Keith Urban still feels uncomfortable watching them especially now with Skarsgård in "Big Little Lies". However, they both have a mutual understanding that everything is just part of her job.

Nicole Kidman has been married to Keith Urban since 2006. The couple has two daughters together.
