Nicole Kidman's strong sexuality

Nicole Kidman has a "strong sexuality".

The 'Big Little Lies' actress - who has children Isabella, 26, and Connor, 23, with ex-husband Tom Cruise, and Sunday, 10, and Faith, seven, with spouse Keith Urban - lets her heart rule her decision making but is very in tune with both her emotional and logical sides.

Asked if she's ruled by her heart or her head, she said: "I always say I'm a pretty even mix, but I'm probably dominated by [my heart].

"If you don't come from a feeling place, you just end up with an enormous amount of technique. I have this [brains], but that can be overruled. It fluctuates too. I have a strong sexuality. It's a huge part of who I am and my existence."

The 51-year-old actress admitted she struggles with knowing how to feel about movies made by those accused of sexual misconduct, citing the "amazing" work of disgraced director Roman Polanski - who has lived in exile outside of the US since fleeing ahead of sentencing for statutory rape charges in 1978 - as an example of where she's conflicted.

She told the new issue of America's Marie Claire magazine: "I look at those films that Polanski made, and they're amazing. I'm sort of navigating through it myself with my own moral compass.

"What do you do? Do you ban it? Or see it as art? Or judge it in this time looking back at that time? I have no answer."

Nicole believes it is very important for her to "give back" and her response to "glory" is to try and do good for someone else.

She explained: "The day after I won [the Emmy for 'Big Little Lies'], I was in San Francisco doing a fundraiser for domestic violence.

"It's probably the Catholic in me, but as soon as there's some sort of glory or you receive something, you then have got to immediately counteract it with giving back."
