Nicole Kidman's teenage years were "awful" because she was so tall.

The 'Nine' actress says she had a growth spurt when she was 13 which saw her tower over most of her classmates and stopped her receiving any attention from the boys in her school.

She said: "I'm 5ft 11ins but taller when I have heels on. But I was this tall when I was 13. It was awful. No boys liked me. It was tough."

The 'Moulin Rouge!' star also revealed she is expecting Sunday Rose, her 18-month-old daughter with husband Keith Urban, to take after her in physicality as she already towers over other tots her age.

She added: "She looks like Keith definitely. She's got my height though. She's off the chart for height."

Meanwhile, Keith has revealed that he, Nicole and Sunday are heading to Australia for Christmas.

He said: "We'll be able to spend it with all of our extended family on Nicole's side and my side, so we're really looking forward to that.

"My sister-in-law on Nicole's side has four children and my brother has two, so there'll be lots of kids running around."
