No matter how hard you try, you cannot avoid aging, and according to Nicole Kidman, you shouldn’t try to.
The Big Little Lies actress, who recently turned 50, is using her new title as an ambassador for Neutrogena to address the pressure that women, in and out of Hollywood, feel to look young.
“You want to have beautiful, healthy-looking skin and that’s what I think most women would desire,” the red carpet pro told E! News. “And, as much as we talk about anti-aging, it’s more that I want to feel vibrant.”

Although you can’t freeze time or turn back the clock, the star recommends focusing on being healthy. “We all know women are having children later in life. So they need to be healthy and strong for their children. It’s really important,” she said just days before dedicating her “Outstanding Lead Actress” Emmy Award to husband, Keith Urban, and daughters Sunday and Faith.
As a mother, she’s extending this self-love lesson, teaching her girls that beauty is about “being strong and healthy, and feeling good inside so you can feel good outside.”
Feeling good inside out, which the star characterizes as vibrancy, is a much more achievable goal than looking young. Vibrancy takes energy and happiness into account, all of which play a role in the actor’s skin-care regimen. After E! News host Melanie Bromley asked Nicole for a skin-care tip, she replied, “I really believe in exercising. I grew up with the dad who would make us work out.”
But, of course, beauty products play a role as well. “Take care of your skin—that is number one. So sunscreen and moisture,” she suggested. And, of course, Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Cream. “Also, I just think love. Good love, slightly harder to get, is a really nourishing thing.”
If you still want to look young, Nicole has a quick fix: “My husband always says it a smile. It’s such a great thing, because it is so youthful.”

Double the babies, double the joy!
Close to two months after Married at First Sight star Nick Pendergrast and his girlfriend announced they were expecting twins, fans now know the sex of their babies.
According to People, the couple is expecting a boy and a girl!
“We started crying, laughing and clapping with joy as soon as they said the genders,” Nick and Afterbuzz host Heather Yerrid shared with the publication. “We were so excited to find out we had one of each. There is nothing more perfect than that.”
The pair shared the news in a photo shoot captured near the Santa Monica Pier in Southern California.
Fans first met Nick on season four of Lifetime’s hit series Married at First Sight. While his marriage to co-star Sonia Granados didn’t work out, he received a second chance of love when he met Heather who just so happens to also be a relationship coach.
The pregnancy journey is extra special for Heather who was once told by professionals that she would be unable to have children.
“It’s nothing short of a blessing when a woman is told she can’t have kids and then becomes pregnant with #twins,” Nick previously shared on Instagram. “It’s still early but we are so excited we couldn’t hide it any longer. Sometimes the most difficult roads lead us to our greatest joy!”
And yes, they are catching up on a few important parenting books before their lives change forever.
“Never thought we’d see the day…right ma?” Heather recently shared while displaying her baby bump at the beach. “#doctorsarentalwaysright #life #lessons #pregnant #preggolife #twice #blessed #miracle #babies.”
