Nicole Kidman cherishes her garden and pet alpacas
The `Nine` actress loves growing her own food at the home she shares with husband Keith Urban and two-year-old daughter Sunday Rose in Nashville, Tennessee, and has now fulfilled a lifelong ambition by also raising the llama-like creatures.
She said: "We just planted our vegetables for the summer and all we have at the moment is lettuce. I`m hoping the corn will be beautiful, because I love eating corn out of the garden.
"And we just bought some alpacas. They are sort of the cousins of llamas, which I`ve always wanted because of their long necks and eyelashes."
The 43-year-old star also spoke about how she wants to raise her daughter to respect older people more as she worries that traditional values are being lost.
She explained: "I find it sad in this day and age that we don`t value our elders the same way we used to. In most cultures they were the ones who had the wisdom and the power, and that`s gotten lost. I`m trying to teach my daughter to have that respect for older people. I`d love to see that come back."
