There's probably at least one thing we all regret doing in our 20s. But the thing Nicole Kidman regrets may surprise you--mostly because it has to do with her hair.
Nicole Kidman's hair is well known for changing quite a bit over the course of her career. Though she's usually seen with neat, prim blonde locks these days, it wasn't always the case. As her longtime fans know, Nicole Kidman used to have red corkscrew curls that cascaded well below her shoulders. Now, she would love to have that look back. But she says she can never wear it like that again.
And it's all because of the changes she voluntarily made to her 'do several years ago.
"I really wanted to have that suntanned skin and long blonde hair," she said. "I wanted to conform and be the Aussie beach girl. And I was never going to be that."
Yet she still used all the tricks in the book to try and achieve that look. While her hair has definitely changed a lot since then, she now reminisces about how her natural curls used to look--and she actually looks back on them fondly.
"I wish I had my curls back," she said. "I tortured them to death. I always say, 'Don't ruin the ringlets!'"
She dished that her husband, Keith Urban, thinks that she is picture-perfect no matter how she looks. But apparently, he doesn't mind a more low-key appearance at all.
"He always prefers a natural me—he’s like, 'Come on, take the makeup off!'" she said.
While we think Nicole Kidman looks absolutely stunning no matter how she wears her hair, we can always appreciate a natural haircut, no matter who wears it. But more importantly, we can appreciate honesty about beauty pasts and secrets. We all have them, after all!
