Nicole Kidman plays a physically and emotionally abused housewife on the show Big Little Lies on HBO. The show is based on a book and there are only 7 episodes. The 7th episode will air this Sunday.
If you haven't watched the show, it's smart, funny, and very dramatic. There are some scenes that are hard to watch, but it really is a great show.
Getting back to Nicole Kidman's character, Celeste, she told Vanity Fair, "[Keith] was devastated seeing it." She had come home with bruises after filming the series. However, he understands that she's artist and this is her craft.
She deals with the same thing. Female fans will sometimes scratch Keith and he'll come home with marks on his body too.
