Los Angeles: Actress Nicole Kidman says she turns down work that doesn't fit in around her children's school year.
"My time is precious, I think once you reach a certain age, the time becomes incredibly important - you're like. I'm raising a six and an eight year old who are in school so there's only a certain amount of time I can work because of their school year," Kidman told Australia's Studio 10.
She added: "That means I pass on things a lot ... because ultimately - and this is just me - my family life is the most important thing to me so I'm not going to jeopardise that in any way shape or form."
The "Big Little Lies" actress who has daughters Sunday, eight, and Faith, six, with husband Keith Urban and; has Isabella, 24, and Connor, 22, with former-husband and actor Tom Cruise, said that she feels "so lucky" to be married to Urban.
"Keith and I always say that we are just so lucky to have each other. In this world, to be able to come back to that love and that strength is so nourishing and powerful. And I am coming up an 11-year wedding anniversary, 12 years together, and that's a big thing. And that is through absolute commitment and kindness, the desire to protect and help each other, what our relationship is," she said.
