Keith Urban was horrified by the massive bruising Nicole Kidman came home with after filming the HBO series Big Little Lies.
In the show, Nicole plays Celeste, whose marriage seems perfect to outsiders but is physically and psychologically abusive behind closed doors. She tells Vanity Fair, "[Keith] was devastated seeing it, but then he would say, 'But I have an artist wife!' He knows that’s how I work; I don’t even notice it half the time."
Same goes for Nicole when Keith comes home covered with scratches delivered by enthusiastic female fans.
Keith says fans sometimes claw at him when he goes into the audience during his shows.
"I've come home with lots of scratches and I'm glad my wife knows what I actually do. I came home one night with literally with three claw marks right across my chest. Huge, big. It look like I sort of like a werewolf had attacked me, basically."
Keith performs at the March Madness Festival in Phoenix on Friday and at the ACM Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday.
