In her recent Interview Magazine conversation with Nine co-star Marion Cotillard, Nicole Kidman revealed her earthy side and appreciation for the simple things in life, saying:  “Where we live now, in Nashville, we support the little local farm up the road. We get them to give us vegetables and fruits that are in season and that’s what we eat.”

In addition to supporting locally grown eats, Nicole and her husband — chart-topping country musician Keith Urbansplit their time between a 36 acre farm located on the outskirts of Nashville and a 100 acre Australian cattle ranch.

Depending on what part of the hemisphere they’re living in at the time, the Oscar winner finds farm life a thoroughly joyful experience, often savoring the fruits of her labor alongside her daughter Sunday Rose who is a huge fan of “eat(ing) out of the garden.”

Although she gets a thrill out of noshing fresh picked corn, Kidman gets even more ecstatic about her new additions to the family – quirky looking alpacas, which are curious, gentle and highly social “cousins of llamas” with long necks and even longer eyelashes.

By the way — she even has a half-glass-full perspective of environmentalism, believing that “people can change” and that we’re not “living in a doomed world.”

    It doesn’t actually say they raise cattle – maybe they bought it when it was a cattle farm, hence the description. Alpacas are very eco-friendly and are used primarily for their fleece, which is sheared once a year. They are not ‘typically’ raised for their meat (thank goodness). Their fleece is absolutely gorgeous, soft, lightweight and warm – similiar to cashmere when processed appropriately.

    “Nicole Kidman revealed her earthy side”…??? It is NOT earth friendly to raise cows…

    The environmental effects of meat production include pollution and the use of resources such as fossil fuels, water, and land.

    According to a 2006 report by the Livestock, Environment And Development Initiative, the livestock industry is one of the largest contributors to environmental degradation worldwide, and modern practices of raising animals for food contributes on a “massive scale” to air and water pollution, land degradation, climate change, and loss of biodiversity. The initiative concluded that “the livestock sector emerges as one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global.”

    I thought this was a joke when I saw it. I agree with the others. Living on a cattle farm? That’s NOT eco friendly at all.

    Either is the botox of dead animals she shoots up with in her face.
