Kidman: 'I Only Discuss Urban's Rehab Stay To Help Others'

Actress NICOLE KIDMAN only talks publicly about her experiences coping with husband KEITH URBAN's stint in rehab to help others who may be in a similar situation. Urban checked into the Betty Ford Clinic in California last year (06) after confessing he'd relapsed in his efforts to beat alcoholism. The scandal happened just months after Urban and Kidman were married last summer (06), and presented a big test for the newlyweds. And now the couple hopes talking about the difficult period will prove an inspiration to others. Kidman says, "Obviously, when your life has been scrutinised and written about, and people are aware of the most private parts of your life, it's awkward to sit on TV and talk about that. "But at the same time, there's a lot of people that are struggling right now with addiction and with problems. And so part of what (Keith) has done is talked about some of our very, very private moments in an effort to reach out to people."
