She won a Best Actress Academy Award in 2003 for her role in "The Hours" and now Nicole Kidman reveals that the win was bittersweet as she went through a hard time in her life.

In the December 2013 of Harper's Bazaar Australia magazine, the 46-year-old actress opened up about receiving the award less than two years after divorcing her ex-husband Tom Cruise.

"[Winning an Oscar] can show you the emptiness of your own life," Miss Kidman explained. "Which is kind of what it showed me."

"[I] was having professional success and my personal life was struggling," Nicole also recalled.

In regards to her marriage to her now husband, country crooner Keith Urban and raising her younger children, "The Golden Compass" actress stated she's content with smaller roles.

"I'm not carrying the whole film, and it's not six to seven months' work like 'Moulin Rouge!' I get to come for three weeks and then go home."
