Nicole Kidman recently opened up about her rebellious teenage years, sharing candid reflections on her youthful defiance. In a clip shared by Netflix, Kidman recalled her own teen experiences, saying, “I love my parents, [but] I always disobeyed them a lot.”

The 56-year-old actress humorously admitted, “I was naughty and then I would confess.” Her A Family Affair co-star Zac Efron responded, “See, that’s why you’re Nicole Kidman.” Kidman reminisced about her younger days, mentioning, “I climbed out of the window, took the screen off when I’d climb out, climb back in at 5 a.m. and pretend I’d been asleep all night.” Efron, impressed, replied, “You’re so awesome, I love it.”

Nicole pointed out there was more to her story, “Move on — there’s a lot more.” In a previous interview with PEOPLE, Kidman shared her deep love for her family. “I have my sister, mother, nieces, nephews, daughters. I’m raising a soon-to-be 16-year-old and a 13-year-old who are divine,” she said.

Kidman expressed her gratitude for her supportive family, highlighting her relationship with her husband, Keith Urban. “They’re just lovely people and I’m so lucky that I have Keith, who’s just my love, my deep, deep love. That gives me the ability to go and do whatever I have to do because I know where I can come back to.”

Discussing her teenage daughters, Kidman told Elle, “I love teenage girls. I just find them exquisite.” She marveled at their resilience, adding, “I marvel at that age group and what they’re dealing with, but also their ability to handle so much.” Kidman’s reflections provide a glimpse into her past and present, revealing her journey from a rebellious teen to a devoted mother and accomplished actress.

Reflecting further on her teenage years, Kidman shared more about her upbringing in Australia. She described herself as adventurous and free-spirited, often pushing boundaries and seeking new experiences. Despite her rebellious streak, she maintained a strong bond with her family, who supported her even when she strayed from the path they envisioned for her.

Her candidness about her past highlights the complexities of adolescence and the importance of familial support. It also underscores how these experiences have shaped her approach to parenting her own teenage daughters. Kidman strives to provide them with the freedom to explore their identities while offering the guidance and support they need.

As she continues to balance her illustrious career with her family life, Kidman’s reflections serve as a testament to her resilience and dedication. Whether reminiscing about her past or navigating the challenges of raising teenagers, she remains grounded in her love for her family and her commitment to personal growth.
