Nicole Kidman says friends tease her about belief in God

by Cara Bentley

"A lot of my friends tease me." she told the May issue of Vanity Fair, in which she features on the cover.

The Moulin Rouge actor is married to Keith Urban, a singer and music producer who does world tours with his country music and the couple have two children - Faith, 8, and Sunday, 10, who attend church with their parents.

Nicole Kidman told the magazine: "That's how we are raising our children. Keith has his own beliefs but he comes, too.

"I had a very Catholic grandmother, and I was raised praying, so that had massive impact. I wouldn't say it's absolutism, there's constant questioning - I'm a willful, feisty girl.

"For me it's very important that I don't have judgment. My dad would always say, 'Tolerance is the most important thing.'"

Kidman has previously spoken about how she considered being a nun when she was younger and received critcism for acting in The Golden Compass because of it's anti-Catholic themes.
