Keith Urban was taken aback by Nicole Kidman’s unexpectedly successful AMC Theatres commercial. During a recent edition of Talking Junkies, the 56-year-old country music artist, Criss Angel, revealed the reasons behind his wife’s participation in the company’s 2021 commercial.
Urban claims that Kidman became involved because they both love movies and that AMC approached her for the ad because of the difficult times theaters are facing from dwindling ticket sales during the pandemic.
Urban said, “So AMC asked her if she’d do an AMC commercial, and it was a no-brainer for her to be a part of that.”
Nicole Kidman ads become fan favorite
Kidman’s beloved commercial has been a crowd favorite for the last two years. AMC CEO Adam Aron praised the ad, calling it “iconic and revered” in a call with investors in 2022.
The 56-year-old movie star is seen in the advertisement walking into an AMC theater following a downpour and saying, “We come to this place for magic.”
“We come to AMC Theatres to laugh, to cry, and to care because we need that, all of us,” she continues. Kidman masterfully conveys the special atmosphere that arises when the lights go down and the audience is taken to previously undiscovered worlds—not just for amusement but also for a shared sense of rejuvenation.
Nicole Kidman was behind Keith Urban’s return
Keith Urban stated on Talking Junkies that Nicole Kidman was essential to his decision to resume performing at the start of the pandemic. She proposed the concept of performing at a drive-in theater in Nashville in 2020.
Urban related the incident, saying, “One morning, we were talking about how excited I was to perform, and I was wondering where we could have a show.” “She suggests, ‘What about a drive-in?'” He went on, looking perplexed at first, “‘What do you mean?'” “We could set up the stage at the base of the screen, and then everybody’s in their cars, and you can just play a show,” she says in response to my question. This is amazing, I’m thinking to myself.”
In the podcast, Urban spoke candidly about his marriage to a well-known woman, saying, “The truth is I’m married to an extremely down-to-earth, chill, laid-back, regular girl that happens to be famous.”

In 2016, after their fateful meeting, Urban told CBS News, “Meeting her and getting married wasn’t life-changing, it was life-beginning.” As for their unwavering love, Kidman responded by telling PEOPLE the secret: “I think it’s knowing that you have to keep contributing to what we call the ‘us.'” “Does this work for us?” you ask. You create a “us” when you put two and together, it becomes yours.”
